WOW, in one simple word. Whether you've been before or it's your first visit to the Vatican, there's only one way to do it and it's with the Vatican Tour Company. Why? Here's why:
Top professional administration - I booked this tour in advance from the UK. It was seemless and I had regular contact with the team and a personal greeting (and a bottle of water) on arrival.
We skipped ALL the queues - and boy, they were long. There is no way you'd be up to walking around the vastness of the Vatican if you'd queued two hours to get in!
Our guide, Luigi. What he didn't know about the Vatican, Rome, the Pope, the art work - you could write on a piece of ravioli. This guy has 3 brains, seriously. He knew EVERYTHING there is to know - my head is still spinning with all the interesting stuff he told us. Things you would walk past and not realise you were looking at. He was so passionate and knowledgeable, he blew my mind. Luigi gets the prize for the top tour guide EVER.
We booked a 3 hour tour - it lasted just over 4 hours - the information just kept coming. The Vatican Museum, Sistine Chapel, St Paul's - they will not disappoint. If like me, you're not Catholic, fear not - you absolutely don't need to be Catholic to be totally awe inspired. St Paul's made my jaw drop and we both just stood there with tears.
So, if you do nothing else on your trip to Rome this company's tour is an absolute MUST. I will definitely recommend to all my friends and family. Thank you Antony and Luigi.
