5 stars definitely! Wonderful experience and our tour guide was exceptional!
Tour guide was extremely knowledgeable and made for a simply fantastic experience!
Sev was an amazing tour guide. Truly bilingual, great knowledge and a great story teller. Tour was definitely worth the price. I would easily recommend this tour.
What a wonderful place to visit. Shannon was our guide and she did a great job. Her insights into all the history in each and every space she brought us was fabulous. Don't miss this tour!
Fantastic. So worth it. Shannon was a terrific guide. To see the Sistine Chapel with no other group inside it was tremendously helpful: she could talk us through the key elements, which is not permitted when there are large groups. We would have been happy to reduce the amount of time spent on sculpture, but would recommend it, and have, to everyone we meet on their way to Rome.
Worth every penny. This was a very small group and there is no better way to enjoy the artwork of the Sistine Chapel. We had the luck of having Shannon as a tour guide for this tour and the Catacomb tour. Not only was she very knowledgeable, but she was extremely pleasant and very interesting. She had everyone interested in history.

UNBELIEVABLE!!! Can you possibly imagine an empty Sistine Chapel? Where you can listen to your guide talk about all the fresco's? And take photos? Worth the trip to Rome. Would absolutely do it again if I ever return to Rome. Will recommend it to any one that will listen! I would have paid double.
Guide was amazing, Vatican is gargantuan and amazing!! It is a must even if your not historically or Catholically inclined! It is a long tour but the time goes quickly....
The guide Sev was sooo knowledgeable!
The tour was excellent and provided great value for my wife and I. The guide was excellent with great knowledge, excellent relationship with the Vatican ppeople, excellent approach to manage the group and to maximize the time and the points of interest. Congratulations!!!! and thank you very much for this great experience

If you can afford the time and money, DO THIS!!!
I had been to the Vatican and Chapel in the past, but never like this. We weren't pushed around by the crowds, and didn't have to work to hear our guide. We spent a full half hour in the Sistine Chapel, just by ourselves and a security guard. We were told about many of the fascinating and funny stories inherent in the ceiling and wall frescoes. So much can be learned about the genius and personality of Michelangelo that you won't get on a regular tour. We also spent time in the private chapel of past Popes. Again, the stories depicted buy the frescoes on the ceiling and walls tell an interesting story you are not likely to hear anywhere else. All very well preserved. Even some minor smoke damage one of the frescoes from a fire many years ago is preserved. The guide described the setting when a Pope was in the room, and how the attendants would serve his need through a side pass-through opening. We also were able to have slow-paced and peaceful time in all the magnificent rooms full of paintings, sculptures, and wall hangings. We learned so much, that connected many pieces of knowledge we had learned in the past.
If you're a theologian, history buff, politician, art lover, geologist, architect, or probably most anybody else, DO THIS if you're able. It's very special!
