We used the same company to the Colosseum and Vatican tours. My husband and I had a wonderful time. Both tours were with Elizabeta and she is amazing. Truly 5 stars.

A heart experience! The artistry is unbelievable and the guide gave history that we didn’t know and got a chuckle from.

good for fast tracking, very busy and keep getting pushed along without time to see everything, The Lady guide we had had was like a 6th form school teacher tutting and telling you off. Take your own Head Phones as there's are rubbish
Good historical info

Great tour and guide. Very informative. Is truly 3 - 3.5 hours, so plan accordingly. Got way more out of it than expected.

Richard was a kind and knowledgeable guide. His introductions were very spell-binding. He spoke very engaged and quickly - sometimes he English tongue was a little difficult to understand for danes. We recommend Richard as the guide.

Very disappointed. We did get right in but it was so crowded we could barely move and they said it was a “light day” The tour guide was boring. Would recommend getting ticket and doing self guided do you can go at your own pace
Wonderful Vatican tour with Karolina

Our group of 6 had a wonderful tour. We had two 10 year old boys in our group and she made the tour very fun for them as well. We learned so much from our guide and it was so great to not have to stand in the very long lines. I would highly recommend this tour and this tour guide!

Our guide was very knowledgeable but we had difficulty understanding her. She had a very high voice that made it difficult for us. Lovely museum and she was very nice and really seemed to know her stuff.

Really impressed by all of the things I didn't know about Vatican. It has changed a lot in the 55 years it has taken me to revisit. The world's 3rd largest museum, with seemingly more steps than the Amalfi Coast, our tour guide was very well informed, and even arranged for a 10 minute coffee break so my wife could rest her foot, which was swollen badly from a previous injury. The tour is 4 hours long, with a whole lot of steps up and down, so you need to be prepared to be on your feet for a long time. But the tour and our tour guide were great. She really tried to synthesis down the big picture of what and why we were seeing this and that, which was very important as there was just too much to see and remember if we looked and discussed everything there. The Sistine Chapel and St Peter's Basillica were absolutely gorgeous, and the stories behind their construction even more fascinating. I was exhausted afterwards, but very grateful for having an excellent tour guide helping us to make sense of everything. I really do believe that the true value of this tour was not in "skipping the lines", but was in understanding and appreciating what you were seeing and witnessing.

Our guide was good, however he spoke very broken English and it was difficult to understand him most of the time. I would have liked to ask more questions but it seemed like there was a language barrier. This had nothing to do with our guide but all of the tours in general. The Vatican was so crowded ti was difficult to maneuver with all of those people and really enjoy the experience of being there.
