The whole tour was exquisite definitely worth coming to Rome even only to live this experience! It is overwhelming to walk through all the rooms and the sistine chapel while listening to the guide narrating. We basically felt like traveling back in time. It is a must visit. Tickets have to be booked in advance for sure and due to Covid restrictions it was not so crowded.

Our guide Andrea was extremely knowledgeable and a wonderful tour guide. It was a small private group (only 5 clients) and we got to see as much as possible within the 3 hour tour. Andrea answered questions thoughtfully and enjoyed diving deeper into topics when clients were interested. He was considerate of our feet and gave us chances to sit a couple of times on the tour as well. This was an amazing tour, highly recommend!

We were in Rome for the first time and are actually not your typical sightseeing tourists. Nonetheless, we opted for a small group tour to Vatican City and we were not disappointed. Christina, our guide, imparted her collected knowledge to us very authentically and with a lot of joy and passion. The three hours flew by and the memories remain of passing through magnificent galleries, Michelangelo's masterpieces in the Sistine Chapel. We ended in the breathtaking St. Peter's Basilica.
