Our tour guide was excellent!

I cannot say enough about this tour. I am not one who normally likes tours, and normally will do things on my own; however, because we were short on time and there is so much to see in Rome, I did not want to spend my time standing in long lines. The Skip the Line: Vatican Museums Small Group Tour is one of the best, if not the best tour, I have ever taken. It started early in the morning, just as the long lines are beginning to form. Considering how long and far we would be walking, I appreciated being able to skip the lines and walk right into the museum before they open to the public. The tour itself is about 3 1/2 to 4 hours long. You move at a fairly brisk pace, but it is not too bad. We had a couple of our group who suffered with knee problems and I was concerned at first about that, however, there was no need for concern. Our guides name was David, and we all felt like we were very lucky to get him, as he was entertaining, knowledgable and very interesting. Everyone forgot their aches and pains once David started talking. One could tell how much he loved the history of the Vatican. It was the fastest 3 1/2 to 4 hours of walking I have ever spent! At one point he paused to let us know we were halfway through and to show us where we started our tour. I was shocked we had walked that far, and we had been walking for two hours. It seemed like just a few minutes. David even spent a few minutes with us after the tour telling us more about the Vatican and suggesting other things to do while in Rome. I highly recommend this tour, as it is money very well spent!

The tour guide is the key and we had DAVID. HE WAS NOTHING short of great. He loves Rome and he was a shear pleasure in all aspects. Regardless, I will say this is a great tour, and depending up one your expectations it is a great way to start your. Visit in Rome. I can only say it was great for us. This was our first visit to Rome, an well worth the money.

Our tour guide (I believe her name was Rachel) was absolutely amazing! She took us on a wonderful tour of the Vatican Museums and Sistine Chapel. She was a wealth of information, and she was able to share that information in a humorous manner that really kept our interest and made the tour a blast! I highly recommend this tour and this tour guide.

We took this tour on our last day in Rome before returning to Australia after three and half years in the US. It was a wonderful way to finish up. Our tour guide, Tiffany, was superb being very knowledgable and engaging. She was able to explain the story of the Vatican and its art with history and bring it alive with anecdotes. I would unreservedly recommend the tour, especially if Tiffany is the guide.

Our tour guide, NIccola, was just wonderful. It's worth the money merely to avoid waiting in the long lines to get in, but his excellent descriptions and explanations of what we were seeing truly enhanced our experience. Highly recommended!

This tour was the highlight of our trip to Rome. Our tour guide, Nena was spectacular and very informative. She took extra good care of us and the information she shared helped us enjoy the wonders of the city to it's fullest. Nena was the best and I am grateful we were part of her wonderful group. We couldn't ask for better care, please pass along to her how delighted we were with her special attention.
Your company can be very proud of such a knowledgeable guide and enthusiastic young lady. My thanks to all of you.

Sara was an excellent tour guide. She gave us lots of information about the museums and St. Peters. We were able to take our time and not rush. Many other tours seemed to wiz by us and I am not sure they were able to take everything in. The smaller group was also easier to stay together and allowed the guide to get more personal with everyone. There is a lot to take in and our tour went almost an hour over but it was well worth it. Don't book anything else on the same day because you will want to go to the underground chambers and walk around St. Peters after the tour.

She took care of all our needs, her knowledge and humour were second to none.
Excellent experience all round, thank you.
