Nice, quick tour of the Vatican. Our guide, Christina was very personable and funny and could maneuver us through the crowds of people like nothing.
Not as good as I thought

Felt rushed by the tour organisers a little bit. Guide was knowledgeable but the english was... Ok. For me, the Vatican museum was disapointing but the Sixtine chapel was great. The tour itself lasted 1h15 minutes. I was talking to another guide the day after and she said it was probably shorter because museum was empty. Not worth the price for me.
An after at the Vatican

Our tour guide Christina was excellent. She was incredibly knowledgeable but also attuned to the needs of the group. My mum and I very much enjoyed the tour despite the heat!

Informative and well organized group tour. Our tour guide, Eugenio, kept my 13 yr old and 9 yr old engaged for the 2 hour tour. For a site that is always packed with people, our tour guide managed to keep the group well organized and moving at a good pace. Good for families. Highly recommend.
Gotta skip the line at the Vatican

Amazing tour with Gabriel as our guide thru one of the most beautiful sites in Rome. We enjoyed the little over 2.5 hour tour because we didn’t want to spend 8 hours in the museum, however, since our guide was knowledgeable & friendly in providing this tour, we would trust him to guide us through that if that were an option.
Deborah is fantastic!

Do NOT go to the Vatican on your own. The line is beyond horrendous,this is the only way to do it, get through to the most important pieces in the museums, and have a passionate expert who can explain the historical significance of what you are saying. Deborah is confident, passionate, and able to navigate the crowds like no other. We loved her! She is an outstanding educator who was incredible with the kids and adults in our group. Highly recommend to anyone visiting Rome!
