We did a tour with joseph as our your guide who was both knowledgable and witty. Unfortunately the tour started out too slow and we missed some key things like the Rafael rooms and the other rooms of the museum some we did rather quickly. Also the group sizes were too big. We started at about 30 people and then... More

We had a very plesent guided tour of the Vatican, on the 12 of August 2014. It was a long walk, however it was very interesting. He explained everything, answered questions, and was very pleasent. If I recall right, his name is Jullian. A very handsom, goodlooking guy ! Yours truly, Kirsten Leerbek.

Watch out when paying for tours. They will solicit you while you are waiting in line. If you are able bodied they are likely fine. They take you through so quickly that if you have any issues walking like me, you can't keep up. They say they will wait, but don't. You do get to see alot of the place... More

If you´re about to visit the Vatikan, i warmly recommend to use "when in rome", ask får Chiara as your guide. She gives you a complete picture of the history and everything regarding the Vatikan.

We took this tour, booked online. The tour included Vatican museum and Sistine Chapel. There is a separate entrance for people with booking and we just had to show the booking printout to the security outside. Once in, we went to one of the ticket counters dedicated for online booking and they issued us proper tickets and asked us to... More

We booked a private tour for the two of us and it was spectacular. From the moment that the cheerful and extremely knowledgeable guide greeted us it was an exciting and fascinating tour. Three hours just flew by as Deborah took us to all of the important parts of the tour, from the museums, through the Sistine Chapel and into... More

Having read the books we booked a guided tour of the Vatican Museum before arrival and felt very pleased with ourselves having arrived in plenty of time to find the way in, which is nowhere near St Peter's Square, and walked past the hoards of people waiting. However, we then spent 2 hours squashed in with everyone else, very hot... More

Maya guided tours of the Vatican was great. Roberto (my wife says it's Ricardo) was phenomenal. He knew lots of facts and shared them freely. Nice guy, knowledgeable, well paced tour.

The VIP Tour of the Vatican with guide David was exceptional in every way. What an amazing way to get into areas of the Vatican that are typically not open to the public and be educated by an exceptional guide by the name of David. This was our third trip to the Vatican and by far the best. The price... More

My family and I took a trip to the Vatican. With a little surfing on the web we came across a Belgium tour guide Mr Frank van den Broeke (http://www.frankvandenbroeke.com/Guided_tours_of_Rome/Introduction.html) with some great references on trip advisor. So we decided to book Frank for 3 hours with us. Not being very religious and with two smaller kids (10&12) any guide... More
