Visited the Vatican and Sistine Chapel 2 1/2 years ago and decided to do the expanded Vatacombs tour this time. Luigi, our guide was extremely knowledgeable and kept our group of about 10 well entertained and informed throughout. He was able to remember all our names and further assisted one of group whose English wasn't strong by speaking to him in Spanish. Luigi's passion was clearly evident to such an extent, he went overtime by about 15 mins to pass on his knowledge.
Going underneath the Vatican was in my opinion the highlight of the Tour but unfortunately no photography allowed. A fantastic tour and well worth paying the extra to view the tombs underneath. If you are lucky enough to have Luigi as your guide, you will not be disappointed.

Was an experience of a lifetime -no linger have to wonder what it is like seeing clips on TV - walking and experiencing this for real was awesome.
This was a great tour and our tour guide was extremely enjoyable and informative.
So much to see, so little time! Our guide was very knowledgeable and made the 3 hours fly by!
A fantastic tour. The Vatican was breathtaking. Guide was so knowledgeable.
Loved our guide Christina. Her knowledge and passion for the Vatican, the Papal history of Rome, the preservation of the art, was obvious. She was able to condense a huge amount of information into the few hours we spent with her and really enhanced our experience of the visit. While we were there during the low season, it was still nice to be able to get through the lines more quickly. I would highly recommend this tour - and highly recommend Christina.
Lucia was SOOOO awesome. She gave real insider knowledge and was absolutely the sweetest tour guide possible.
A great tour, with an extremely knowledgeable and interesting guide!
Even better was the time of year December because of the low volume of people.
This was my second time taking a tour like this, and it was much nicer to be able to actually see the artwork, instead of getting pushed around through crowds of tourists.
Definitely worth it if you go at the right time of year. Otherwise the hoards of people in summer/ early autumn can take away from the experience.
The experience was amazing, and our guide was fantastic. He was very helpful, very knowledgeable, and explained everything that we needed to know to prepare for the next destination/event well in advance. Individual time was also included, so this tour definitely caters to family time or including time to wander around and explore in certain areas. I would definitely recommend this tour to anyone and everyone.
Absolutely brilliant. Any longer would have been a bit too much. We had an American guide who was second to none. Her knowledge was vast but her enthusiasm was what made the tour.
The Vatican and St Peter tour was a great value. Our tour guide Luigi was very knowledgeable and informative. He was also very concerned with the well being of the entire group insuring that all of us got the most from our experinece. He was espacially accomodating to the seniors in the group.
the tour was great and the tour guide was excellent. The only down side was finding the starting place. needed better directions. There are a lot of green gates on that street.A sign or banner is needed on the street to help in finding.
Excellent tour that was very handled very professionally. Our guide was very interesting and the Vatican and Vatacombs tour was excellent. I would highly recommend this tour.
This was a fantastic tour. If your guide is Luigi, you are in great hands. This was a truly, skip-the-line experience. We walked through the various galleries and with Luigi's art and history knowledge, it really made us experience and appreciate all the things we were looking at. The tour end in the basilica, after walking through the vatacombs. Ending with Michealangelo's Pieta was another highlight! This is a must do, even if you are in Rome only for a day!
Wonderful tour. Lots of information. The Vatacombs were very interesting. Highly recommend.
Luigi was the best tour guide we have ever had. He was very knowledgeable and great at navigating the crowds. We would highly recommend this tour.
Probably the best tour I have ever taken. Luca was an amazing tour guide and with his degree in archeology, it really made the tour. He painted a picture so clear with the details he provided, it seemed the ruins came to life. He actively asked what people wanted to know about before the tour started and made sure everyone was engaged.

Have done similar tours before . This was definitely the best.
Good guide, nice tour! Will recommend this tour to any one and will take it again but probably choose a time when Vatican is less crowed.
The tour started a bit later than the scheduled time. The Vatican was extremely crowed that day not sure if it is always like that. The tour guide was quite mindful of his group and to keep us in a herd. He was very knowledgeable and answered all our questions.
Downside: I think he spent too much time giving us background information at the very beginning and I think that took away some time from viewing the exhibits. Also, we did not get to see Raphael's room. I realized it only after we came out.
Our guide Martina was fantastic, she was very knowledgeable and fun.
Our guide Christina was wonderful. She gave us just the right amount of information, not too much and not too little. I highly recomennd this tour to others.
What can I say the tour guide Martina was fabulous so caring and she looked after us all so well. Couldn't fault this tour it was amazing
Just got back from our trip to Rome. This tour was absolutely amazing. We had Christina from when in rome tours and if you ever get the opportunity to have her as your tour guide, jump at the chance. She was so informative and I could've listened to her all day. Thanks for a wonderful tour!
