Our tour guide was fabulous. She was knowledgeable and experienced as she was able to maneuver us through massive amounts of people. I enjoyed the historical significance and detailed stories that the tour guide provided and learned so much. It made the tour very interesting and worthwhile.


5 star rating: Highly Recommended November 2017

Excellent tour, fantastic guide. The group was very small 7 people- four were my family which was unexpected.. The skip the line was incredible we never had any wait on a very crowded day. The gardens portion was beautiful. My families favorite tour of our vacation. The guide couldn't have been better. Perfect! Don't hesitate to book.

If you have decided to see Vatican City, then this tour is an absolute must. If don't, you will be waiting in line 3-4 hours just to get in. Plus, even if you got in you won't have the knowledge of the small but significant details the guides have for you. Trust us, you are making a wise investment.

Excellent tour. Guide was very knowledgeable and really brought the history of the Vatican to life. Amazing experience to see the Sistine Chapel and St. Peter's Basilica. Very helpful in skipping the lines and making our way though a complex area. Highly recommend this tour.

Stephania was a great guide - friendly and very knowledgable. Getting the chance to go in the Gardens, pretty much by ourselves, was fantastic. And St. Peter's is spectacular.

This is a magical tour. We went around the Vatican gardens and had the gardens to ourselves which provided wonderful views. Our guide was brilliant and hugely informative.
A real experience and 1 not to be missed!
