Too long tour in the heat. Visiting the church was definetly worth it, but in the museum we did not catch everything. In general, the radio transmitter provided a plot signal.

Decent tour, extreme crowds made it tough.

The organization of the tour and information about meeting was great. The tour started with the security to St. Peter’s (which is free to anyone) and a walk through the line. Our guide shared informations and made the line go quickly. From there we did bathroom and walked into St. Peter’s. The tour in St. Peter’s was nice and informative. We then walked out and down the street (10 min walk) to the Vatican museums. This was exceptionally crowded and the tour was very difficult to follow. Our guide was far ahead and because of the crowds it was difficult to catch up. I’d say the Vatican museums was rushed. Partly due to the crowds we experienced. We went into the Sistine chapel and separated from the tour group at this point to do our own thing.

Gabriel was our tour guide. He was very impressive with his knowledge and we learned a lot during this tour. The meeting place is their office, which can get very congested and crowded but that was the only downside.

Valerie was our guide. She was very informative. On such a hot day she always tried to make sure we were in shaded areas and had our water bottles filled. She is very kind. This tour was well worth the money we paid. We learned so much.

The tour itself can be done without a tour guide. Our guide was nice but bad….. I could have saved myself some money by not booking.

Julian is an amazing guide. He is very knowledgeable and patient which is critical with crowds. Would do it again. We saw everything for less than what most tours cost.

The tour guide was very knowledgeable but he did not wait for the whole group before he began speaking. Crowds were abundant so you really had to try and find him (no flag) and keep up with him.

The name of the tour was very misleading. We only skipped the line at the museums. We waited in long lines to enter the Basilica in extreme heat. Our guide Valerie was informative, but could’ve been more brief. She had a lat to say about everything and her pacing was way off. We spent 45 waiting to get into the Basilica then an hour in there. By the time we got to the museum we only had 30 minutes. I wouldn’t recommend this tour.

Disappointed with this tour

This is not a skip the line tour. We still waited in a line that wrapped around the entire circular area outside the basilica to go through security. (In the hot sun). When we finally got into the basilica it was extremely crowded. We then went back outside to go to the Vatican museums. It was a long walk to the museums. The museums were ok. A lot of sculptures and maps with some information about their history. At the end of the tour, we finally got to go into the Sistine Chapel for about 10-12 minutes. Seeing the Sistine Chapel was one of the reasons we came to Rome, so that was not long enough! Therefore, 2 stars. Skip the tour! Try to see the Basilica and Sistine Chapel on your own.

There was a strike w the taxis so we couldn’t leave the airport in time. I requested to have the tour reschedule since it was not our fault but they denied it. They ask us to just join the tour for the end of it which was the Coliseum. The girl super nice but we did t have ear sets and it was difficult to understand her. I also felt rushed to walk through the underground (reason why I decided to book the tour)
