It was a long day but we went on a weekend when we had to do it all in a day. my advice is wear trainers not thin unsupported shoes. The guides were very informative and pitched it at the right level. There was enough time between the two tours to have a sit down lunch in the cool. recommend.

Katharina, our guide was great. Full of enthusiasm and very likeable, she brought us closer to the history of Rome. You could tell her passion for history. She has tremendous knowledge and was able to answer any question. We recommend!

Excellent tour, I recommend taking it on separate days. This is not notified when you buy the tour, once you redeem it they tell you that it can be on different days.

Great tour at the Sistine Chapel, our guide (Ms. Julia) was very knowledgeable, gave impressive details about not just the art but about their historical background.

This was perfect for fitting in two big experiences in one day. The guide helped us figure out transportation between the two. Definitely worth the money!
