Vatican tour for was amazing it's a dream come true for me. Our tour guide for Vatican and Colosseum are both amazing and very knowledgeable. Grazie for the great experience!

This was a great tour. Be prepared for a lot of walking and you WILL be tired by the end of the day but the amazing sites you see during this tour make it all worth it. If you don't get the lunch option, it gets a little confusing. Finding the group at the Colosseum after lunch was confusing for everybody. People on other language tours were just as confused. The tour company should really try to be more visible and specific on a location to meet. Other than that, everything went well. The skip the line is a MUST. Our tour guide for the Colosseum portion was Ed. He is a character and does many tours for the company. He made this extra special. Thanks Ed!

Plan on a lot of walking but able to see a lot as well. Skipping lines is the ONLY way to go. Waits were up to 3 hours at the Vatican if you were not on a tour. Same with the Colosseum. Guides were professional and very informative. Worth every penny.

Amazing, amazing!!
We had one issue with the security at the Vatican. Security made us check my husbands backpack into their holding area. When our tour guide went to pick it up0 for us while we were at lunch. Security gave the guide the wrong backpack. My husband went back with the guide and it took almost 20 minutes for security to figure out they had mixed up the bag tags!! Our guide argued with security until we got our backpack! Miguel was amazing!!! After my husband got back to join me for lunch. We wanted to thank Miguel with a tip, but he was gone and we were off to the Colosseum. so... THANK YOU MIGUEL!!! XOXO
