The Mindful Cyclist

Very informative and enjoyable tour
Having looked at the queue of people going into Vatican City, we were immediately relieved that we had booked a tour that was 'skip the line'. We were able to get in easily with no fuss, as opposed to others waiting for an hour or two (and this was the off season). We had good, fast access to every aspect of the tour which gave us great value for money.
Dina was our guide for the morning. She was an exceptional guide and was a wealth of knowledge. She has been doing these tours for 20 years and so she not only knows what she is talking about, but seems to be well known by staff and other tour guides which helped with the smooth nature of the tour. Dina was flexible to the needs of our small group and was friendly and clearly enjoys her job.
I would recommend City Lights Tours and would highly recommend Dina as a guide.

Awesome guide
Oct 2018 • Couples
Alberto was an outstanding tour guide. He was extremely well informed, provided great advice on moving from place to place, and had excellent english language skills. He had a very relaxed demeanor. The tour itself was excellent. We had early access, and what a huge advantage.

Amazing - Book a Tour with Guido
Sep 2018 • Couples
This tour is amazing and I would highly recommend getting in early to beat the rush of people and get a closer look at many of most popular sights within the museums. We got lucky only had 3 people on our tour with Guido. Guido was fantastic and provided our small group with an incredible and unforgettable tour. He is very knowledgeable, took the time to describe various sculptures and art work and did not rush at all. His passion for the Vatican comes through in his descriptions and made the tour that much more interesting and fascinating. If you are able to request Guido, I would, or at least ask when his tours are and book it.
