Hilaria was awesome. It would have been nicer if the tour started earlier so the Sistine Chapel would not have been so crowded. But overall it was great

Not our first Walks tour and it did not disappoint. This tour is so worth the early wake up. We were inside the Vatican before the museums and Sistine Chapel opened so we were qued up asap. The breakfast was just ok but totally met our needs and was a beautiful setting and well organized. Our tour guide Sabina was extremely knowledgeable and we were able to see and do everything we wanted and as described. Beautiful experience. Highly recommend.

The audio / radio system was very poor quality, it rendered the guide's voice as very strident (which it wasn't). Aslo the volume control went from too loud to off in one tap. This devalued the other wise excellent commentary.

Fabulous day at the Vatican! From start to finish, everything proceeded beyond my expectations.
