Initially wasn't very clear where we meet and we nearly missed it arriving jst a few minutes before it started.The guide was very knowledgeable and her English was very good and could communicate effectively with all of us.It felt a bit rushed the tour and not having time to appreciate the artefacts, paintings, sculptures and carpets. There was not enough time allowed to spend in the Sistine Chapel though we were suppose to be there for 35 minutes but ended up leaving after 20 minutes to go to the St Peters Ballistica. It didn't allow us time to really experience the quality of the artwork, history or how it must have been completed. We felt short changed here.At St. Peter's Ballistica this was rushed also.Overall we did not enjoy the tour and appreciate the Vatican as it should have been better for what we paid. Looking back it would be better to pay to go in on your own and use an audio guide or a specific tour book that you can follow whilst waking around. We do not believe it was value for money for paying over £110 for of us. I will add this on Trip Advisor as well.

A must if you can cope with the hordes of people. Fast track tickets only helps to get in faster, from then on its bedlam.

Fe was our guide for the Vaticans Highlights Tour. It would not be the same without her! She was so fun and excited about the tour and it really made us so happy to be around her. She gave the perfect tour and all of the highlights in the amount of time we had. I cried in the Sistine chapel because Michelangelo's work was so beautiful. Raphael rooms were stunning. No trip to Rome is complete without this tour. We ran into Fe a couple of days later in Rome and I quickly went to give her a hug. She is fabulous and we really hope to meet her again one day upon our return to Italy.

FANTASTIC tour!! Our favorite. DEFINITELY worth skipping the line! Our guide was Julio sp? and he was WONDERFUL! This was the best of the three tours we did during our time in Italy. The Vatican is amazing and VERY crowded. This covers all the highlights in an intriguing fashion and Julio made the whole experience personalized despite the absolute masses of people there! Thank you!!

Our Vatican Highlights tour was one of the most enjoyable things we did on our recent vacation to Europe. Our tour guide Fe did an excellent job. She shared her passion and knowledge of the most amazing sites of the Vatican. This was a very memorable experience! The 3 hour length was perfect for me and my daughter. This is a highly recommended tour!

This was a breat tour. Our tohr guide was very knowledgeable about everything about the vatican. The tour moves pretty fast but you have enoigh time to see everything. Do not book this tour if you cannot be on yout feet for 3 hours. There is no where to rest or sit. We had a couple of people who struggled to keep up.

Absolutely amazing! The morning tour was the best, giving you the afternoon to enjoy the rest of Vatican City. Heads up though, once you leave St. Peters you cant get back in without going through the long line of security. So if you want to spend more time exploring and going to the top - dont go eat lunch and expect to get back in.

Flavia was an excellent tour guide! Extremely knowledgeable about history and art. A must do for anyone visiting Rome
