Tour left on time headed by our amazing guide Ian. We were given headsets which were great as we were able to hear him all the time even in big crowds. The tour went through all the important beautiful places and we got to know great details and funny sidenotes. There’s a lot of walking on the tour so be prepared! But everything worked great and the tour was amazing. No big queues at least now in January

We came delighted with the Tour! You can see many interesting things in a short time, and with the guide you can access different areas to those that you pass through if you go individually. We went on weekdays and were able to enjoy Giuseppe's fun and interesting explanation before contemplating the frescoes in the Sistine Chapel for a while. We will definitely repeat when we return to Rome!
