Since it was raining, we had a private tour. Great experience nd learned a lot about the vatican history. Tour guide was amazing with his depth of knowledge on the vatican and the masters. Going to the top of st peteres is a must. Would definetly
Stephanie was a great tour guide! She gave our 4 person group great insight of every site we visited. She also answered all of our questions. Definitely recommend this tour!
I enjoyed the size of group=9. It was manageable. Husband hates cattle driven tours. Guide was exceptional, knowledgeable and accommodating. I used a cane for balance (helpful looking up at ceilings and also for climbing to dome). All participants were so very nice.
Fantastic tour and well worth the early start. Fredrica was an amazing guide - wish we could use her for all tours. The Dome Climb was excellent. The Vatican museum is extremely busy and chaotic - better to know this in advance. Wear very comfortable shoes as you will walk (shuffle) miles.
Our guide was very knowledgeable & presented information in a easily digestible manner. He added a bit of humor which was much appreciated.
This tour is perfect if you want to see it all without all the lines. Tour guide was excellent, very knowledgeable and did not rush us
The tour takes you to some not to be missed locations like the top of St Peter’s Dome, the Basilica, and The Sistine Chapel. 5 hours was a lot of time and I would consider a 3 hour guided tour to the stops above with some self guided time to suit your interests at the Vatican museum, or perhaps a second day guided tour. Having a good guide who is fluent in English is critical for the non-Italian speakers since the is some much information shared and our guide was great.
We did the Vatican tour with the st Peter's dome climb with Sarah. She was absolutely amazing. Full of knowledge and kept the tour fun and interactive. Prepare yourself for the dome climb, about half way up your calves start giving in, but push! It's so worth it
A long tour but 100% worth the early start and sore feet! Captures pretty much everything at St Peter’s, Vatican Museum and Sistine Chapel. We did the 0745 tour which meant we arrived when St Peter’s was quiet. Huge queues going in as we were leaving.
Our tour was exceptional. Our guide was engaging, humorous and well informed. Our group wished that the tour could have lasted longer.
