The guide was awesome. He was very knowledgeable and made the tour enjoyable. We only had one day in Rome and if it wasn't is for him we would not have known what we were looking at. Worth every penny.

My PRIVATE tour guide is highly educated with a doctorate, highly professional, and exacting in her vast knowledge and very personable. She is a pleasure and made this tour very satisfying. Spend the extra money and go on a PRIVATE tour and always book skip the line. Thank you!!

Our tour was the highlight of our entire trip. We were travelling with our 89-year-old father, who had trouble keeping up with the masses and our host was absolutely wonderful. In addition to her keen knowledge, she made sure our pace was accommodating to him and passages were clear to the point where she even secured a seat for him when we reached the Sistine Chapel. It was a privilege to have someone with such knowledge, kindness and compassion as our guide and we thank the company for such a memorable experience.

An excellent guide! for the tour, We had a private tour for our family of four. We were in very quickly with no wait whatsoever. The guide was incredibly knowledgeable, congenial, organized, and took us through a very busy Vatican with ease. This was an incredible experience for our family and the guide enhanced our experience giving us the perfect tour. Highly recommend.

Life-changing! First of all, I would have given six, eight or even ten stars for this once-in-a-lifetime experience. Our guide was knowledgeable, professional and an amazingly nice human being! We were in Rome in the late season, but the Vatican was even less crowded thanks to recent travel concerns. We were able to stroll through the various exhibits and galleries, without having to fight the normal crowds, giving us a very personal and intimate experience with all the amazing treasures. Sistine Chapel was the highlight of our entire European vacation. It was truly a magical experience.

We booked Skip the Line tickets and private guide on the internet. We went straight into the Vatican and our guide was clear, knowledgeable and with very good English. We really enjoyed our time at the Museum, the Sistine Chapel before being shown the "secret" entrance into the Basilica and we had a great morning in the Vatican.

WONDERFUL! This was the first time we had ever been to Rome and we booked many tours. We started with this tour of the Vatican which took three hours and took us through the Vatican museum, the Sistine chapel, and the museums. Our guide was attentive and accommodating and really made the tour for us.

Our tour of the Vatican museum, Sistine Chapel and St. Peters Basilica came alive with our expert tour guide. She had a deep knowledge of the art and history of the Vatican. We have visited Rome and St. Peter's on many occasions and this tour provided much information that we had not previously known. Thank you for a fabulous tour.

The only way to really enjoy the Vatican is with a private tour. I went two years ago on a large group tour and even though the Vatican was astounding, I felt that when the tour was over, I really knew nothing about the history or the arts. This time I booked a private tour and although it was more expensive, it was worth every penny. We had a wonderful guide who really explained the history of the various parts of the Vatican and not having to stand in line was an added bonus. An excellent tour to take.

Our group of six booked this tour online before we traveled. Our friends had been to Italy last year and told us to book a private tour to the Vatican as it will be a much better experience. They were right and we had first-class tour of the Vatican. Our guide was great and I am still overawed by the beautiful paintings on the ceilings and walls.
