We were very fortunate to have an amazing tour guide in Vanessa. She was very knowledgeable, charming, warm, funny and just a perfect tour guide. This is a very crowded venue, with a lot to see and discover so a tour guide is all but essential in any case. Vanessa gave us an in depth talk about the ceiling of the Sistine chapel using a scarf she has as you can not talk in the chapel. Overall, the Vatican is a must see if you are in Rome and a great tour guide makes is the only way to see it.
The Vatican a nightmare of tourists in the summer. If you can skip visiting Italy in the summer, do it, otherwise do this tour. The tour goes into the art Museum, Sistine Chapel, the Tomb of the Popes, and St Peter and #39;s Basilica. I and #39;d recommend this to anyone visiting Rome the first time.
Our tour guide Max was our favorite tour guide!!! He was very passionate and fun! Possibly would want more time to shop at the end.
Our guide was amazing as he described so much stuff on this tour. He was very informative and a joker at the same time. He recommended trying to get the earlier tours which we had as there are more people that go in the afternoon and then you don't have the time to talk about stuff because you are being herded through the hallways. But I definitely recommend doing this tour and try for the morning!
Terrific! Amazing! Awe inspiring! Weeks later I still get chills describing it. I wish we would and #39;ve had more time to see things, but I understand. I am definitely going back to Rome!
Our guide was very informative and we thoroughly enjoyed this tour! Would highly recommend it to everyone.
Friendly and informative guide. Pickup at hotel was much appreciated. Great experience.
The tour guide was excellent and highlighted the important points. It would easy for a less experienced guide to give us too much information that we could not absorb. It was helpful to be picked up at our hotel and dropped off within walking distance of our hotel. I would recommend this tour to anyone.
This was a great, well organized, educational and knowledgeable experience. Though at times hard to understand, Franco was very kind, energetic and enthusiastic! We had a lovely time! They even dropped us off at the next site we were going to saved our taxi fare.
We had an excellent experience with a guide who was friendly, entertaining, and kept us moving at a pace that was neither too fast nor too slow.
The actual tour itself was great! They put on a classy show! Where we had issues was coming back on the bus the tour guide announced there would be three stops on the weay back for people to check out! We got off at the first stop, Trevi fountain and came back to where we got off and no bus! All our purchases were left on the bus. Luckily I had called the tour company earlier and had the phone number on my phone. In the end we got our belongings back the next day but they should have told EVERYBODY that if you get back at any place you had to get yourself back!
Enjoyable tour, good pace about proceedings and a knowledgeable guide. Saw all that we wanted to see

Excellent tour and tour guide. Very knowledgeable an experienced. Good walking pace. Guide allowed plenty to time to view and admire the Sistine Chapel. Would use this tour company again if have another opportunity to visit this beautiful and historic city again. Great service. Really lives up to Skip the Line. Thanks.
yet another wonderful tour with a guide that lives and breathes the tour and doesn't just talk and lead you. one tour there is never enough
Great guide. Really good way to navigate the maze of museums! We were lucky that it was not at all crowded. Coming out into St Peter's Square in twilight was magical.
Our guide was very enthusiastic, thorough and knowledgeable. We would have liked to get into the other galleries.
A really good tour - the museums are incredible leading to the Sistine Chapel which was a lifetime ambition fulfilled, and wow words can't do it justice. We could have spent a lot longer than half a day looking round because there is simply so much to see. Our guide was really good fun and full of knowledge which made the day all the more enjoyable.
We had an amazing guide on this one, I wish I could remember his name. We saw the highlights without being overwhelmed. Would highly recommend to anyone.
