What can i say about this tour. WOW... i am speechless, awesome experience and something i will remember for the rest of my life. Thank you.
Our group consisted of 6 adults and 6 children ages ranging from 9 to 15. The tour guide made this tour a very memorable experience for the age groups. Highly recommend.
Our guide was obviously very interested and knowledgeable about the subject matter. She offered a lot of interesting facts and interpretations at many of our stops. She was efficient while allowing time to answer questions and keeping the group moving. We had a very pleasant and fact filled afternoon.
We booked this tour as we thought it would be the easiest way to see round the Vatican and Sistine Chapel - it was, plus we skipped all the queues. Our guide was good and was able to ensure we saw all the things that we really should in the short time we had. Radios were used to let us hear what the guide was saying, and these worked ok mostly. I'd recommend taking your own headphones though as the ones supplied don't work particularly well or stay in your ear.
In all this was good value, and ensures that you get a better insight into the local info and culture as well as the history.
Excellent tour our guide was very informative. I would recommend doing this tour.
Very interesting and fascinating tour, much enhanced by informative, fun and enjoyable guide. By no means can you see all the Vatican has to offer in this time, but still saw plenty and the main parts. Skip the line was invaluable. A fabulous half-day tour that we'd totally recommend
Fantastic tour guide. Extremely knowledgable, very informative. Would definitely recommend. A big thank you to all involved.
very informative tour. Guide was very well informed spoke very well
The guide was excellent. She provided great history of the Vatican. We enjoyed every minute. I highly recommend the tour.
Our tour guide paced our Vatican tour just right... time to see the outside museum, time to see the inside galleries, time to see the Sistine Chapel, and time for St. Peter's Basilica. She described everything knowledgeably, and with enough detail to understand the significance of each item. I loved it all!
Our guide was very knowledgable and the information she gave was detailed and really interesting. Would definitely recommend booking this tour, it was a good combination. You should also pay the 8 EUROs to go up to the top of St Peter's Basillica. The view is stunning.
This was wonderful - our guide was so clever and knowledgeable - she also seemed to be a delightful person - I think her name was Ms Carbonara.
We were fortunate that there were only 5 people booked on our tour, and the other 3 didn't turn up, so we had a very personalised tour. Our tour guide Vivianne was so knowledgeable and informative that it was a wonderful tour for all of the 3 hours. Especially appreciated being able to spend so much time in the Sistine Chapel. Well worth the money.
Meeting point easy to find with free internet whilst we waited. Guide was excellent. Good English and animated presentation. Lots of information and pictures to explain his point. Worth paying to beat the queue.
Very good tour. Plan some extra time after the formal tour to go back and see some of the things that really caught your eye. We didn't do this and we regret that. You don't need to be Catholic to appreciate the splendor here.
The Vatican area was very, very crowded and we were very grateful that we had the Skip the Line tour. We were in a group of about 20 people with a guide who was very knowledgeable about every thing that we saw. Seeing all of the treasures and the amazing art work was wonderful and being able to learn some of the background was helpful. The time we spent in the Sistine Chapel had to be quiet but it was very, very crowded in there. Our guide spent time at the end of the tour guiding people to good restaurants and other things to see. It was money well spent.
Small group, good guide, you see all the most important things.
Beautiful place. I think I appreciated it more than the children.

Everything was wonderful. Hotels were great, flights all went beautiful. Second time I use the local tour operator and it was wonderful again. I have given out your website a dozen times. Thank you!!
Great tour with a good guide, highly recommend this tour, a short option for those who want to see all the main attractions at the Vatican but without spending all day. Really enjoyable
Our guide was absolutely amazing. She was very knowledgeable. But the best part was she did a great job of keeping our 10 and 11 year old children interested in what she was saying. It was definitely worth scheduling a tour on our own rather than booking a cruise excursion.
Superb tour....don't miss this one! Sublime art, breathtaking ceilings, not just the Sistine Chapel, just amazing.
The tour was very exciting and interesting. The guide was very friendly, knowledgeable and excited about the art and the history of the Vatican. I highly recommend booking a tour with them.
Really glad we took the tour, our tour guide was fantastic, really good English and he was sooo knowledgeable. Would recommend this tour.
Avoided a two hour wait! Got more out of the Vatican than I could have on my own. The guide was wonderful and more than helpful! This is the only way to see the Vatican!
This was a wonderful tour, our guide was super and we learned a lot! Worth the money!
Excellent tour the guide a Canadian girl was friendly and very Informative very enjoyable have no hesitation in recommending this tour.
This tour was awesome! Our guide Sara was amazing. This is a must for anyone coming to Rome!
Great tour guide. The tour office was a little hard to find,but I had booked my tour for the following day and they were able to accommodate us that day.
Tour guide was local and informative. Best part was we got to skip the line.
We bought this ticket for a Wednesday morning when the Pope was giving his Papal message. If seeing the pope is your thing, DO NOT BUY this for wednesday morning, get tickets for seats for his mass/audience.
If you don't mind missing the pope, going to the Vatican museum during the Papal audience is an excellent idea as it is not crowded. You don't feel rushed or elbow to elbow with the other tourists as you all make your way to the Sistine Chapel. We arrived at the Sistine Chapel around 12 and our guide told us to go back to the cafeteria, have a coffee, and wait until they open the access from the Sistine Chapel to St. Peter's Basilica. Though the vatican attendants did not like us walking back towards the Sistine Chapel entrance, we just said we needed to use the toilet and they let us go. Around 12:30 they opened the door and we were able to go right into the basilica without having to go through security again. Also, the basilica doors just opened as well and there were very few people in the basilica.
Overall, it was a great tour! We didn't get a tour of the Basilica due to the Papal Mass, but I think we received a more in depth Vatican Museum tour and so it worked out.
We had a really nice guide. He had a lot to tell which we didn't know before, since my friend allready had a tour at St Pieter. He spoke English at a really good level. We enjoyed the tour and would definately book another one.

Beautiful experience, extremely knowledgeable guide and was great at answering questions. A little confusing finding the initial check-in office, but overall I recommend this tour. Remember that the entry fee is not included, so be ready to provide payment when you check in. Skip The Line was great.
The tour was very informative and a wonderful way to see the vatican!

GREAT TOUR. THE GUIDE WAS AMAZING. NO LINES, DIRECTLY TO MUSEUM, SIXTINE CHAPEL AND ST PETER BASILICA
Wonderful tour with a very knowledgeable guide. This was ny second time at the Vatican and I highly recommend a guided tour......an added plus is skipping the long ticket line and going directly to security!!
This was the perfect way to see Vatican City, the Sistine Chapel, and St. Peters!!! Patricia was absolutely fabulous!!! So informative and just a lovely person! We especially enjoyed her stories about growing up in Rome!
Skipping the line was great, worth bringing your own earphones if you have.
Our tour guide was great. She made sure we were all together which was very difficult considering the large crowds and the rain. She was very interesting and knowledgeable.
Despite the crowds, our guide was able to get us through in a timely way, was really knowledgeable and left us with a broader understanding and great memories of such an amazing and beautiful place!
Informative and breathtaking. I lived my tour guide and the tour.
Booked on line before leaving UK. Difficulty in printing voucher was only issue.
Tour guide was first class. Would thoroughly recommend the tour.
This tour with Chiara was one of the highlights of our trip to Europe. Chiara was a wealth of information! This sacred place is simply amazing! We will have to come back and visit again. It was overwhelming, but so beautiful and we were glad to have a very knowledgeable guide.
Very terrific...!! Well organized and worth skipping the long, long lines. Best of all was Patricia...!!! She's warm, friendly, very knowledgeable, and LOVES what she does and it shows...!!!
