We met outside Vatican City. Once group was together the guides took us past lines, picked up our headsets and got us on our way. A great way to see everything

There is so much to see on this tour that there is no way to see it all. It is a fast paced tour but our guide, Felix, was awesome! He showed us the highlights, which was still a little overwhelming. I know we would've missed a lot had we tried to do a self guided tour so I highly recommend this tour. If you want to spend extra time anywhere you need to avoid the guided tour.

Shame on the Noisy Tourists in the Sistine Chapel!

Our guide was friendly and shared lots of interesting info with us during the tour. She told us ahead of time about the etiquette required at the Sistine Chapel -- no photos and no talking. So it was annoying with so many people crowded in there who were talking loudly while taking pictures despite the guards attempts to silence them. If you plan to visit this amazing place, please show some respect.

This is a fast paced tour. Make sure you have walking shoes on. Hard to understand tour guide even using personal hearing devices. You do get to skip the waiting lines!

Our impression of the Sistine Chapel was it is overwhelming. Enjoyed having a tour that prepared us ahead of actually visiting the chapel. It made our time in the chapel, museum and basilica so much more meaningful. We visited in late October when the weather was in the 70s. A much better time than in summer with heat an crowds.
