We were pleased with Happy Travel Tours. You get to skip the long lines and the ticket prices are approximately the same with the tour included so its definitely worth it! We were one of the last tours in the afternoon so we felt we got a pretty good deal. Alberto was our tour guide in the Vatican City. I... More

I'm not sure why Happy Travels gets great ratings. My daughter and I pre-purchased our tickets online in the States. When we went to Rome to take our tour of the Vatican City, we were approached by many people soliciting for us to take their tour. My daughter and I decided to go and check it out. The way it...

On the day 2 of our vacation to the eternal city last month, we visited the Vatican. As soon as we got down from the metro station(Ottaviano) we were accosted by a "tour agent". We finally decided to go for a guided tour of the Vatican (with "skip the line") after a bit haggling and negotiations of course. We had... More

The price of the tour is high and the way they address you in the street makes you doubt if it is a scam or not. We decided to go to the office and pay for the guided tour in English. Then we had to wait about 15 min, but we waited seated in the sofas in an air conditioned... More

Recently my family and I took a guided tour of the Vatican under the Happy Travel tour company and I have to say that was it the best thing that happened to us. And it wasn’t because of the “skip the line” privilege; it was because of our tour guide: Deny Martines. She was nothing like your ordinary tour guide.... More

Well, it was a wonderful day and the best luck when we choose to have this trip with Happy travel especially with an exceptional lady like Deny Martines. The tour was very informative and at the same time very enjoyable. Word of advice, don't go there without having this amazing trip with Deny Martines.

Had a brilliant tour of the Vatican with Simone of Happy Travel yesterday. He was an excellent guide. Both informative and entertaining. We would have lost hours of precious time queuing only for him. Well worth paying for. Thank you all at Happy Travel

So. Being VERY averse to group travel, guides, tourist traps, and all that, we were also jumped on as soon as we got out of the taxi. But, as we (contrary to how we normal travel) had not really prepped anything, were in fact tired and a little hung over, we decided to give it a go. For the 10... More

My boyfriend and I were in Rome last month and decided to visit the Vatican & S Chapel. Once we arrived at the S. Peters square we were approached by a girl offering us a tour with the promise of skipping any queuing. First of all I would like to add that my boyfriend is English and I am Italian,... More
