We had basically just arrived in Rome and within the hour we were on this tour. It was very well organised and the tour was absolutely amazing! The tour guide was very knowledgeable and was an absolute delight. This tour is a must if in Rome and I would highly recommend it to anyone!
This is great tour by a very knowledgeable guide. We saw more on this trip than our last guided visit.
When visiting the Vatican, there are no words as the history and the art combine to leave you speechless. Our guide, Laura was amazing and I believe a local Art Historian able to tell us the background on any painting or sculpture we pointed to. She kept the dialogue fresh and always had an interesting fun fact to share e.g., who hid whose face where. Group size was perfect, the whole experience was professionally coordinated from start to finish. Would definitely do it again as there is simply so much to see.
Excellent tour and wonderful explanation of all the sights and background.
Wonderful tour, very informative guide, I arrived on time, the team was very helpful in guiding me to the right meeting point over the phone as I was a bit late, the museum itself is just amazing, when you see the arts, you can't say anything, just wonderful, you feel like the art is talking to you, such a great artists, its quite nice when see the arts after the briefing from the guide, you really understand what the artist meant with his work.
Thanks city wonders!
This tour was the highlight of our stay in Rome. Our guide was extremely knowledgeable and made the tour very enjoyable. Apart from th tour, I would recommend giving yourself enough time to find the meeting point, as we had a little difficulty finding it from the metro station. We made it just in time, but it was a stressful situation that could have been avoided by allowing for some extra time before the tour departure. All the rooms we visited were very interesting, especially the hall of maps. Raphael's rooms were amazing and our tour guide did a very entertaining job of explaining to us the relationships of the artists of the time. The Sistine Chapel was amazing, as was St. Peter's Basilica. After the tour ended, we were able to continue touring around until we were finished. We highly recommend this tour to help navigate through the museums and for an enjoyable experience in the basilica.

Sara was a great lady and fantastic guide. This small Group was out of this world with all of the other larger group around she kept us with her and explained all of the designed and customs of St. Peter. This was well worth the money.
This tour was a great way to see The Vatican. We had a small group with a very passionate, knowledgeable and personable guide, who spoke English well. Being able to access all of the areas without lining up, with someone so knowledgeable, particularly about the art works, was well worth the cost of the tour. I was concerned that 3hrs may be too long, but the time went quickly and was definitely the right amount of time to see all of the important features, without having to try and navigate ourselves around.
Would absolutely recommend this tour!
You cannot visit Rome without this skip-the-line Vatican tour. Worth every penny! It was my second time visiting in 2 years and I was still amazed! So much history and art to see and hear about. If you go to the Vatican definitely use the skip-the-line option, You pay a little extra, but you'll be glad you did when you see the entry line wrapping around the corner yet you go directly inside without waiting for hours.

The tour guide was very entertaining. He took the time and explained everything in the Vatican. We didn and #39;t have to wait in line and it was perfectly planned.
Don and #39;t miss this tour!!!!!! Guide was the best!!!! A must to see and hear the amazing stories of the Vatican. Truly a no wait skip the line Tour.....
Worth every penny. Loved this tour
Amazing tour wonderful guide. The ability to Skip the Line is worth it as is the smaller group.
Excellent from the word go and the guide was brilliant too with her explanations, knowledge and nothing was too much trouble for her.
Our guide for this tour was Giuseppe and our group was 20 people in total. Totally worth spending a bit more to pre-book and get to skip the line which was already very long, even in January! Feel very lucky to have been part of Giuseppe's group - his passion and knowledge shone through. We covered all the main highlights and had a great Vatican experience! Thank you Giuseppe!
This tour included a highly knowledgeable guide, with headphones so we could hear her. While We saw the line to get into the Vatican Museum stretch down the street and around the block, we had a preset time to enter, with our tickets already purchased through the tour. Through our guide you not only see some of the world's most incredible art, but you learn the history behind the work. The Sistine Chapel is beyond words! While photos are allowed in the rooms of the Vatican Museum and is St. Peter's, photos are NOT allowed in the Sistine Chapel. St Peter's was the highlight of our time on the tour. The beauty and history of the church was emotionally moving. I recommend this tour to see all you need to see, and get it done in half a day.
Wonderful tour! The museum could be overwhelming but our guide was able to help make this a very enjoyable and informative tour. And unless you see the line, you have no idea how awesome skipping it is! This tour is worth way more than what you pay.
Really excellent. Our guide Ursu was knowledgeable and friendly and kept us going. The skip the line was highly desirable given the long lines to enter the Vatican.
Excellent tour - learnt a lot about the backroom history to the art and church. Tour guide was highly knowledgeable and personable too. It is a shame that the tour could not extend to the church itself in the afternoon sessions because of the religious services that take place then...so if this is important to you, take the other sessions available. Also, the meeting/starting point for the tour guide is unclear and can create anxiety - honestly guys, just provide a small map! I had to call to find who I would be meeting and where and how to recognise our guide etc etc...other than that - fantastic!

Very quick access with the full history on all the sightseeings. It is highly recommended to take this tour. So much to see you can and #39;t know where to begin and where to end. Takes you through every area. Only thing g was there was no allowance of time for souvenirs.
We did indeed skip the line, which was all the way down the block. There were people stationed at street corners as we got near to show us where to meet up with our guide. This was well organized and we had a great guide. It was more meaningful understanding what we were going to see and what we were looking at as we progressed. Well organized, well timed, loads of fun. We had plenty of time to see things, although you always need more time.
