We booked the Vatican and gardens tour, the lady we had as the guide was awesome, she really knew her stuff and the gardens were amazing, they were really well manicured, we went through the museum which was also awesome, however the crowds were suffocating, we actually preferred the garden tour. The age of some of the artefact's were amazing... More

We are two adults and 5 kids aged 11-16. We wanted a tour that would bring the Vatican to life for the kids. Francesca was perfect. She engaged them for the full 3 hours - and the adults thought she was pretty cool too. We booked a private tour and it was worth every penny. Her enthusiasm and passion for... More

Make sure you book in advance! The Vatican museum, Sistine Chapel and St Peter's Basilica are the most visited attractions in Rome. Book a guided tour as you will miss a lot of the hidden history. So much ancient art and sculpture to see, that it's impossible to mention all of it. The ceiling of the Sistine Chapel is amazing,... More

Only book directly with the Vatican - you will be HOUNDED by people lingering outside, but avoid disappointed and go directly. We booked the tour for The Sistine Chapel and St Peter's Basilica. The Vatican has over 6 million visitors a year - I went about 10 years in peak season and I couldn't breathe for the heat, so it... More

TERRIBLE. DO NOT GO ON THIS TOUR. DO NOT GIVE THESE PEOPLE YOUR MONEY. IT IS A SCAM. We (boyf and I) had our Vatican tickets which we booked online before we came to Rome, we were on our way and a tour guide came to tell us that the tickets we had only covered the Museums and Sistine Chapel,...

Myself and 3 friends decided to head over to Rome to the Ireland V Italy rugby match on 7th of February. We wanted to take in some sites while we were there so on the advise of some Italian friends we looked into booking a tour of the Vatican instead of going it alone! There were quite long queues to...

Our "Joy of Rome" tour guide was Chiara. She was very welcoming and you could tell she wanted to share her knowledge about the Vatican with you. Even though it felt like we were a bit rushing through the Vatican Museum itself, we still managed to see everything important. The detailed explanations about The Last Judgement and the Sistine Chapel... More

What a beautiful place! If you are wanting to see the Sister Chapel this is the tour to take. Very good experience. We saw Ceasars spa as well as the Hall of Tapestries.
