    Daniela, our guide, made our Vatican visit so interesting, even for our 12 year old! She explained everything in a simple way with lots of fun facts and made sure everyone understood and got the chance to see everything without rushing fast to the next part. Great value for the money! Thank you!

    It was a great tour of all of the Vatican museums, Sistine chapel, and basilica. However, they didn’t bother to tell me that in the winter tours start at 9, even though my ticket said 8:30. Be sure to try to confirm that so you don’t have to sit in their office for almost an hour!
