About
This essential Vatican City tour begins with a visit to the Vatican Museums- the most beloved place to visit in Rome. Skip the line and allow yourself more time to discover great artworks by Michelangelo and Raphael. Explore the Pio-Clementino Museum and travel through the Gallery of the Tapestries, 75 meters long named after the elaborate Flemish tapestries that drape its walls. The Gallery of the Maps, painted between 1580 and 1585, takes its name from the 40 maps frescoed on the walls, representing each of the Italian regions and papal properties at the time of Pope Gregory XIII. Our sightseeing Vatican visit continues to one of the most revered places to see in Rome – the Sistine Chapel. Your guide will walk you through amazing works of art including Michelangelo’s The Last Judgement – the largest fresco ever painted by one man. As you explore the endless wonders, our guide will tell you the stories behind these famous masterpieces on this breathtaking Sistine Chapel tour.

Vatican, sixtine chapel and st.peter all together in a 3h during tour starting early in the morning. We were glad to start this early because the weather became scorching by noon.
Our guide, Marie Thérèse, was very kind and full of experience. Worth the 46€.

Via Germanico 8, 00192 Rome Once is the meeting point. The entrance fee for the Vatican Museums was NOT included in this price and was paid upon arrival at their office (24EUR).
Sabrina was our guide and she was very good. The museum was crowded as expected in this time of the year and only two places of the museum had aircon; gallery of maps and the Sistine Chapel. If there are small children and elderly in your group, i would ask you to go later in the day when the weather is cooler as there is plenty of walking and stairs-climbing involved. Only two elevators were noted.

Since I went on a Wednesday, the tour did not go to St Peter's Basilica but instead spent close to three hours in the Vatican Museums itself.

Dear Customer, Thank you for taking the time to leave such informative feedback. We are glad to hear that you enjoyed the tour, despite the heat. We aim to provide a broad coverage of the attractions within the Vatican, but the sheer size of the collection means it is nearly impossible to see everything in one visit. Entrance into St Peter’s Basilica is free, and so we hope you were able to visit it at another point in time. We hope that you found the Vatican Museums interesting, and that you enjoyed your trip. Regards, Customer Services, Enjoy Rome

We booked this tour because it was advertised as a small group with no more than 12 people. Our experiences have always been better with a smaller group. When we showed up, we had 18 on our tour and now the site says no more than 30! That's not a small group. You also have to pay for the entrance to the museum itself (which was stated) however, it was another 20Euros each! Not worth it for us at all. The Vatican is so crowded that it was difficult for everyone to stay together. Our tour guide couldn't show us everything, so he showed us the things that he liked. You have no possibility of strolling along and looking at what YOU want to look at. When we finally made it to the Sistine Chapel, I didn't even realize that's where we were until we were leaving. I thought it was another room. We walked through some contemporary art just before entering and it was not silent. This felt much more like an art museum tour than a tour of a holy place. Loud, CROWDED and very rushed. Made me not want to suggest going to the Vatican at all.

We went to the Vatican Museums in the end of December and found the trip to be like we wished for. Our guide Francesca had both the knowledge and the energy you want in a tour guide. She made the trip easy and fun, passing the long line into the Vatican was also appreciated. This tour is a good choice if you want a memorable tour (without the wait) of a unique place 😊

Dear Malin, Thank you for the kind review. We are glad to hear that you enjoyed your tour with Francesca – we will pass on your compliments! The Vatican is stunning and just so popular that skip-the-line access is a must, especially at busy times! We hope to see you again soon in the Eternal City! Best, Laetitia

I had in change in plan and requested to be move 2 days earlier. The told me I have to pay 24 euros/ person for the "change". I told them I was not impacting them because i was just moving to another tour with room for more people. They told me they were accommodating me. While I waited for the tour to start; 5 more people walked in and and ask how much for the next tour. They got charged the same amount I paid and were added to the tour with no problem.

Unfriendly, rude and unhelpful company and tour. You are better of going to their office and finding a tour there and then, rather than booking online. We were 4 mins late and they charged us double for the trip. They booked us for the next slot which by the way didn’t start 5 mins after the assigned time. When the tour was in line good 10 mins into the tour, the same woman who refused to help us whatsoever, brought more people to join the group?? So I guess the whole rebooking €12/ €21 policy didn’t apply to everyone. The tour guide barely told any history about the pieces in the Vatican museum. Barely answered any questions. Anyway really unhappy with the whole experience. Reading up online about all three experiences would be a better option than going on this tour. Not worth the money.
