Must see, get the early access.. Ask for Raff
, Feb 2020
Truly a great tour. Our tour guide Raff was great, the guards inside seemed to know her and she knew so much historical facts and was excited to share her knowledge. Very pleasant and upbeat and happy. We had early entry and it was so beautiful to be able to walk around inside before the general public. Truly a must see experience. We seen other groups that were quite large and our group was 7 people. Perfect to be able to explore and ask questions and take our time.
Wonderful tour of the Vatican with Fabiana!
, Jan 2020
Fabi was knowledgeable, funny, an excellent teacher, and knew exactly the most interesting parts and how to explain their significance. Fabi is fabulous!
Maria was an excellent tour guide for the Vatican museum, Sistine chapel and St Peter's basilica
, Dec 2019
I was particularly impressed by Maria's knowledge about the arts and her depth of research into the Vatican and the history, culture and theology of the Christian faith as it pertains to the Pope, Vatican and Rome. We had a great time with Maria and would highly recommend her as a tour guide!
Great early morning

Elizabeth was an amazing guide! There is so much to see and her knowledge brought your eye to the highlights in all their glory.
informative but rushed...
, Nov 2019
The tour was very good. We enjoyed it but we expected to not be so rushed through our tour. We got to the Vatican and met outside in a grp of 20 or so. Were given our headsets and moved across to the entrance and waited outside till the Vatican opened. Then we shuffled inside and the guide got our tickets and started the walk through the museums. The walk was brisk as she headed toward the Sistine chapel. we got time there then went all the way back to the beginning and started over with the museums. Then we made our way through to St Peters and spent time in there and was quite rushed. All in all the tour was very good, the guide was knowledgeable and friendly but it was very rushed, even though we could go back and spend more time on our own.
Good tour
, Oct 2019
I thought this was a very good tour. Our guide did a great job taking us thru and explaining things. She dealt well with the two selfish people in our group that went out a clearly marked exit and weren’t allowed back in due to security. They wasted the time of everyone else on the tour but the guide did her best to keep the tour going. There were 14 in the group which was borderline too big to stay together easily as it got crowded.
