      Bad Experience w Once Upon A Time Tour Agency
      Do NOT book a tour using this agency. Our guide was the WORST. Provided 2out of 3 hours for poorly led tour. TERRIBLE exp. St Peter’s was closed which I know can happen. Instead of a discount, they hold us we would gain access to Raphael Rooms that are normally closed. We asked and witnessed that they are part of the normal path to the Sistine Chapel and cannot be closed. We are trying to get some money back but no luck yet. This was the worst tour experience we had on a 2 week trip. Stick w trusted apps like Viator or Get Your Guide. They do a better job vetting their agencies. This was a waste of $300. Learned nothing. Lied too.

      Great pace and guide!
      The tour was informative and gave us an experience we could not get on our own. Marta was very knowledgeable and took us through the museums and basilica at a perfect pace, speaking to the main points of the galleries and stopping at the most famous pieces. After the tour we stuck around St. Peter’s Basilica and did additional exploring on our own. Great tour!

      Requires a whole day! But a must!!!
      We went on a tour of the Vatican Museums, Sistine Chapel and St Peters Basilica. Our tour guide was Marta, who was very knowledgeable and provided a great insight into the story and history of the museum, it's artwork, symbolism etc. I would definitely do this tour again, however just for the Basilica and not for the museum, as we did not see all the artwork that we wished to on the 2nd Floor. The tour was 3 hours long. So I would set aside a whole day if you want to do all three things properly.

      Review of Vatican tour
      Many thanks to Polina for making our first visit to the Vatican an impressive experience. She’s extremely knowledgeable and friendly. I asked a bunch of questions which she was happy, and capable, to answer.

      Many many thanks to Polina, our guide! Her extensive knowledge of history and art, her highly professional manner and overall expertise as a guide made our experience an excellent one! Despite the enormous holiday crowds she helped us focus on the unique architecture and priceless artwork.

      DO NOT BOOK using Headout (fake official tickets at castel-sant-angelo-ticket.com)
      DO NOT BOOK using Headout (fake official tickets at castel-sant-angelo-ticket.com). Instead, just buy 14 euro tickets at the office onsite. The service / site implies it's an official partner of the location, and we paid for a "hosted tour plus audio guide!". Well, it turns out that the audio guides (which we never got) were an app download, however, in the email, and the headout app and at the site there was no information about any app provided, despite us asking. Afterwards, we asked for a partial refund and the operator - who is NOT OFFICIAL and sits across the courtyard from the official ticket office was extremely rude to us. This fake official ticket thing is a real issue in Rome, and I know they are trying somewhat to crack down on it, but not enough!! HOWEVER, the visit to Castel Sant Angelo is amazing and, unless you are hiring a private tour guide to take you in, there is nothing that this Headout service could possibly add to the experience.

    I went on this tour with my family. Marta, our guide, was very good, Full of knowledge, it was not boring at all. He was able to respect everyone's needs by giving us the key points to better understand the history of museums. Thanks Marta for the wonderful experience. Don't hesitate to choose her.

    Marta was an excellent guide, very knowledgeable and friendly. Kept us engaged the whole tour, gave us some insights I wouldn’t have had otherwise. Monica was superb organizing the group and checking everyone in. The key is “skip the line”! One should definitely have a guide on this tour, there is simply too much to do it without a guide. And avoiding the line is a great benefit. I would certainly recommend this tour guide company and
    our guides in particular!

    The tour was absolutely knowlegeable and fantastic. It felt like you're in a time machine, bringing back history to the present. Many thanks to Marta ❤️ because she explained well every segment of the museum and the Basilica. She's nice, pretty, fun and never hesitate to answer all our queries. Will definitely book tour again with them.
    Highly recommended!
