Great guide but average experience with tour itself

Our guide, Azzura Mancini, was awesome!! She kept our kids interested through out but I feel tour could have been better organized e.g Directions where to meet should have been better. We long with 1 other couple were running around frantically asking people about our tour company. Similarly price point was higher for this tour compared to other companies offering same. It was crowded (not tour's fault) and despite paying for expedited entry, we still had to wait some time before we could enter. Sistine Chapel was packed too

Hello, Please note that the Vatican is one of the most visited locations in the world and as such on some days there may be crowds, however, with skip the line priority entry and by entering with us, you get to save yourself hours and tour the museums in a more intimate context. The security check of the Vatican is mandatory for all and so there will always be a little wait to enter and this is good because it is for your own safety. As for the instructions, we will review the text and optimize it, thank you for bringing this to our attention. The Sistine Chapel is wondrous and attracts many people, unfortunately there is little control we have over how many people the staff allows in. Please know that a licensed, expert guide is well worth the money and the skip the line tickets alone saved you much time and discomfort. As for the price, please know we have different tours depending on the interests you may have and the prices vary depending on itinerary, number of people and quality. Should you need anything personalized feel free to contact us!

Our guide Simone was excellent and so knowledgeable. We saw so much in the 3 hours. Only drawback was the crowds. It was quite scary at times. This has nothing to do with the tour but down to the Vatican not keeping tours to a manageable size. At times you could not move and if someone had taken ill I don’t know how they could have coped. However I am so glad I saw the Sistine Chapel and the Basilica. This is a fantastic tour.

Renata was an amazing guide. She knew so much information and made this tour very enjoyable. I know this tour says it’s 3 hours, but we were lucky enough to see a little extra and the 3 1/2 hour tour felt like it was over so quickly. We loved it and would highly recommend this tour and ask for Renata.

Our guide Azzurri was very enthusiastic and seemed to have an extensive depth of many subjects, such as the art, religious, and political history of many cultures. She also was good at emphasizing the important basic concepts. It was a little hard to hear with the earphones due to background noise of crowds, could be improved with a close-mic headset. Overall we had an excellent guide.

Our guide (Iffi) was very knowledgeable and enthusiastic she truly made this experience unique. She used to be a teacher so she was very didactic and made a point of details that most people would miss
