Quick entrance and informative tour at own pace

This was a last minute booking to avoid queuing in the hot sun - skip the queue access into the Basilica with the bonus of a self guided audio tour. Firstly it worked - front of the line access then easy to get audio tour (app download) just inside the Basilica. The tour was actually very good - we went round at our own pace accessing information as we went. I felt this way we got more out of our visit than if we’d just wandered round. Entrance to the Basilica is free but on a very hot day this was a life saver for me.

A mind blowing exposure to more art than can possibly be comprehended

This was a very good tour of the Vatican's treasures. The guide, Adele, was knowledgeable, personable and kept us all together as a group. The meeting place was a little chaotic due to the sheer number of people milling around looking for their group. Perhaps some numbers on poles would help with identification. It was great to visit the mythical Sistine Chapel, although disappointingly some people there (not necessarily in our group) were incapable of keeping quiet as instructed by the staff.

The most beautiful place I’ve ever seen.

Saint peters basilica is the most beautiful place I’ve ever visited my entire life. Truly spectacular. Depending on when you visit and overall amount of tourists the skip the line ticket may not be necessary. On the day I’ve visited it may have save me a little time but not a ton. I returned the next day and was able to pretty much walk right in without waiting in line. Either way visiting the Basilica is an absolute must.

A superb way to see more of Roma and to learn about her history.

Our driver/guides were brilliant. They shared their love and knowledge of Roma with us while zooming through the streets. This is the second time I’ve booked this tour and would again and again. Each time has been different and just as breathtaking. Thank you for making our night a highlight.

Very efficient guide, covered all major points pretty quickly

The tour to Vatican Museum, Sistine Chappel and St. Peter’s Square was extremely good. There was a bit of anxiety as Sistine Chappel was to close at 10 am that day due to a special program by the Pope. The guide was very efficient in covering all major attractions well in time.
