Got to walk right in. Passed the lines waiting around the building. We did the first tour in the morning and got out ahead of the crowds. Good guide.

We loved our tour and Francesco was a most kind passionate tour guide who truly loves his city and wanted to share with us. We had our two girls ages 10 and 12 with us. It was really good to have a guide who could get us past the lines and point out the most interesting facts about the Sistine chapel and Vatican for us. There is so much to see and take in it can be overwhelming otherwise.

Claudia was great! She met us promptly at the entrance and we proceeded right in skipping the very long lines. As it turned out, we had Claudia to ourselves for a private tour (not expected). She was very knowledgeable and able to adjust the tour and level of detail for our interest. I highly recommend this tour. You won't be disappointed.

Francesco spent over four hours with the three of us. We saw the Vatican Museum, the Sistine Chapel and St. Peter’s. Amazing! Francesco has an encyclopedic knowledge of the Vatican and enjoys sharing. We will always remember this fabulous day.
