Vatican tour
Alessandra_B, Jan 2022
Tour was good very informative but they were a lot of people there…the guide was attentive and caring for our questions and special needs.
Lackluster tourguide
Jill_W, Jan 2022
While the experience was obviously stunning, our head sets were terrible and our guide did not speak English well. This made our entire family take off the head sets and wander around hoping to hear other tour guides explaining what we were seeing. Very disappointed.
Great tour and nice guide to discover the Vatican
Claire_S, Jan 2022
I enjoyed the explanations about the chapelle Sixtine and the Raphael’s room. The visit is quite intense because It lasts almost 4hours but Fabio, our guide succeeds in keeping us aware. I recommend this tour to discover the vatican and the keys to understand its masterpiece. I learned lots of things.
