Our guide, Rafaela, did a great job of giving us the history and story of the paintings and sculptures. She did this in a lot of detail, her passion just inspirational! If you want to see works by Da Vinci, Michelangelo and Raffael this is the tour for you.

This was our second tour of the day, and we found it to be very organised and very well run. For it is a very crowded Saturday, we got right through security, and it all went smoothly. It was very crowded and hot, so it was not for the faint of heart, but it was still exciting.

We visited Vatican Museums & Sistine Chapel with our fabulous guide, Paula. She made the whole experience amazingly memorable. With her assistance, we easily navigated the queues to appreciate the Vatican’s treasures. I really don’t know how we would have seen what we did without her... Highly recommended!

Our guide expertly took us through the museum, the Sistine Chapel and St. Peter's, giving detailed information along the way. Without her, the day would have been much more frustrating and could easily have turned into a disaster. Highly recommend your services, thanks!
