We booked a skip the line guided tour of Vatican City, Museum & St Peter's Basilica. Although it was worth it to skip the line (the queue is always a mile long!) the guide wasn't really needed inside as most things had placards telling you about them. We could probably have done it a wee bit quicker that the 3... More

We were very fortunate to have an excellent tour guide, who was very passionate about the history of the museum Vatican, the ancient artefacts, religion background, the construction of the city and Rome. She spoke very good English and was considerate to all on the tour. Allow 3 hours for this tour and to go through St Peters. Brilliant! The... More

Having toured the Vatican on two prior visits with grandchildren and taken standard tours my wife and I decided to try and avoid the huge crowds and book a semi-private tour that admitted you at 8AM, prior to the regular opening and supposedly less crowded. It was a waste of time and substantial money. It seemed that every tour company... More

We had not been back to the Vatican in nearly forty years, so I researched carefully all of the tour companies. We settled on Easy Rome as they had great reviews, convenient departure times and the price was reasonable for what they offered. And boy were we impressed. We had a tour guide named Valentina who was amazing. An archaeologist... More

We waited outside the steps opposite the museum as instructed but as it was so busy we couldn't see which guide was ours as there were so many groups. The tour guide went inside without us and took our tickets with them! We noticed everyone had started to go inside so we called the phone number on our confirmation email,... More

Four of us took an amazing tour of the Vatican (about four hours) with What a Life Tours and were guided by a fellow named Grant. He was very articulate, engaging and a "tower" of information throughout the entire tour. Questions were directed to him constantly for which he had quick and in-depth responses. He related many stories about the... More

I'll give you just one advice never contact them. We had this man an italian guide named Giuseppe and he was so confusing talking about vatican history that we didn't understand anything and it wasn't the worst. He was rude and racist, he criticized all the tan people in front of us, and to finish when he knew that someone... More

My husband and I bought the OMNIA Vatican Rome Card online as it seemed to be quite convenient and we read positive reviews about it, however our experience was negative. When you get the card online there is no information that it takes up to 48 hours to get your voucher for the card. The only thing they send you... More
