Spectacular! So much history and beauty. Our tour guide was great! Did not have to wait in long lines and was able to move through Vatican City easily.

My only negative was our guide Guido was a bit grouchy at the end but he had to search for three of our group a couple of times? So maybe that was it?

The whole tour was very well organised.
Lorenzo, our guide, was a charming and an extremely knowledgeable young man. Our small group all appreciated his expertise.
Even though we arrived early it was still very busy but speaking from previous experience, this particular tour did make our visit far more
enjoyable. Would recommend.

Guide was very knowledgeable in the history of Rome, the Vatican, art and linguistics. Highly recommended.

This tour accommodates up to 24 people but on the date we booked there was only the 4 of us in our party so we ended up with a private tour of the Vatican! Our guide was fabulous, very engaging and knowledgable. Would highly recommend this early tour as the Vatican gets exceptionally busy throughout the day.

It is advertised as early entrance to Vatican Museum and Sistine Chapel, but in reality you get to go in early to the Garden section not the Museum and Chapel. By the time you get to the Museum and Chapel it is already Super crowded with people who get in at regular time. Also says you get breakfast in the gardens, but you actually only get coffee at one of the Cafes outside by the Vatican City. On the upside, the guide was fairly knowledgeable and informative.

Vatican guide was very good and did a great job of getting us around without being pushy or rude to others. Overall I think Vatican was too long and other tourists were very disrespectful pushy, spoke loudly in the Sistine Chapel, etc.

I am so glad we did this, well worth the money! There is so much to see - it would have been so overwhelming to navigate on our own, and we would have lost so many of the details. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable, personable, and entertaining. We had a great time!

We were a little early for the tour and the tour company was not open yet so had a bit of difficulty finding the meeting place, as it was back a side street. The tour was very good, nice pace and easy to understand . We would do it again.

Excellent tour! Federica was the best guide we could have hoped for. She was passionate about sharing her knowledge with us and having only 4 people in our group made the tour so much more personal. I highly recommend this tour to everyone. You will learn so many things about the Vatican City and museums that are not in the guide books.
