I was told that the Vatican was so crowded you couldn’t move but I figured everything is crowded it can’t be that bad.It was so crowded you took many baby steps throughout the whole Vatican. The tour rust you through so fast you could not take pictures. Our guide spoke English but we could not understand her. I would skip the Vatican and go to Saint peters basilica next-door which was amazing.
The tour starts promptly at 10:30.My husband and I visited Vatican 15 years ago without tour. Now we brought our 12 years son. It is a big difference going with tour guide. We had Margarita - a wonderful, knowledgeable, intelligent and patient person. The best tour guide in the world! We had a small group of 7 people and enjoyed every moment in Vatican and St Peter’s Basilica with detail Margarita’s explanations.
Super easy to find and walk through the entire day. Raffa our tour guide was amazing. Would definitely recommend this to someone looking to tour the Vatican but doesn't want to spend a long time doing it.
Excellent guide and tour which offers highlights of the Vatican Museums and Sistine Chapel. We were, of course, prepared for the crowds and our guide did a great job keeping us informed and together. She did an admirable job engaging the young people on the tour who were showing signs of tour-fatigue. It would have been nice to linger a bit longer in the Sistine Chapel but given the crowds it' was like being a cork on the ocean! A great experience.
This tour was well-worth the cost ... walking by the extended line was in itself cool but the guide explained so much about all the items in the Vatican Museum that we felt that we had been treated like royalty! Such magnificent articles in the collection and to have them described with such historical background was amazing. I was annoyed by the other people in the Sistine Chapel for their lack of reverence for where we were but it did nothing to lessen the impact of standing in the presence of such beauty. St. Peter's Bascillica was mind boggling - thank you for having this tour available. I recommend it highly!
