Our tour guide was excellent, but the tour started late in part because we had to wait for microphones --which never came. So we waited in line to pick them up in the Vatican Museum. Consequently by the time we got to the Sistine Chapel is was pretty well packed. Perhaps that is typical for that time of day, but I didn't feel it was worth the extra money for early-bird entrance. Having said that, I want to say again that or guide was excellent.

Together with the Colosseum this was top of our ‘must do’ list on our first visit to Rome. It was a truly fascinating visit experience and one not to be missed. Our tour guide - Juliano - was as enthusiastic as he was knowledgeable and was engaging from start to finish. The Bluetooth kit used performed perfectly. If you’ve visited Rome without making this trip you have missed out on a gem.

Very experienced guide. He did everything right. No more, no less. Very warm and positive. In a big crowd, he fought for the best positions, communicated with other guides when necessary, as well as with many guards in the museum. All for the purpose of our group. He made sure that we were always in the shade when we listened to him outside, and he made sure that we avoided the stairs, passing through the fenced corridors. For me, expectations are met, when you get what the agency offered you...

I booked a guided tour in Vatican, with my two children. The experience was really amazing! Our guide Antonio was such an informative, professional, kind and with a great sense of humour man. His knowledge about art was very impressed. We were really lucky to have him as our guide to our first visit in Vatican. Thank you!

This skip the line guided tour was a life saver. There were extremely long lines to first enter the building to purchase tickets. As a group we were ushered through into the main ticketing building where our guide redeemed vouchers for tickets. The guided tour was worth it and you can select the preferred language when booking. We were provided.with an English speaking guide. There were other groups based on language - French, Spanish etc. The vatican museums were amazing! No photos were perm...

Guia was our guide and did a good job of taking us through the highlights of the Vatican Museum. We did the small group tour of 20 people for 2.5 hours and we were able to get a good introduction to the Museum itself, the Western sculptures section, Gallery of Maps and then the Sistine Chapel. Since we had an afternoon tour in July, the museum was packed and extremely crowded in certain sections, but Guila did a good job of finding shade, keeping us engaged and explaining aspects of the Sisti...

Our guide, Frederico, was great. Very knowledgeable & despite having done the tour numerous times was still very enthusiastic about the Vatican & Sistine Chapel. We were in a small group of 9 so it was easy to follow the guide. The earpiece we each used enabled us to hear everything Frederico said. The only downside (& this is something out of the control of the tour co.) was the crowds, but apparently we were there in a quiet day. I would hate to be there when it’s busy!

The tour start point was easy to find and the overall check in process was easy. Guide was very knowledgeable and great at checking in on the group to make sure we stayed together at all times. The Vatican & Sistine Chapel is a must do when in Rome so overall worth the time and money.

All information about time and exact place before start of the activity was very useful and precise. Very good guide. But be aware that it will be very crowdy ! The guided groups compete with every one else, good though to get rid of the ticket queues.
