We bought tickets online for the guided tour. The process was smooth. Directions were straightforward and we arrived at the correct place at the correct time. The tour guide was friendly and informative. The museums are large and full of art. The problem was that it was super crowded and you couldn't stop so you only got glimpses as you were herded through room after room. Often, the audio on our ear phones would cut out so we only heard parts of the explanation. By the end of the two hour tour, we were happy to get out.

Dear Client Thank you very much for taking the time to leave us your review. We are deeply sorry that you felt the tour didn't live up to expectations. We are sorry, but our company is not responsible for the big crowds found in the venue, as we do not have control over the people in the Vatican. We would have suggested you book the early morning Vatican tour to avoid big crowds or visit this venue during the low season. In particular, we are dismayed that you felt our guide wasn't giving the best possible service they could during your tour. We at Vatican Guided tour do our best to hire passionate and ready guides to engage clients and bring the Vatican to life, so when we hear that this may not have been the case, we take this very seriously. For the Vatican Museums, October is still considered a high season month with more than 15.000 visitors daily. We invite you to email us at info@vaticanguidedtour.com with your booking reference number and further details about your experience so we can follow up with the guide and offer a possible solution. Thank you for your understanding; we look forward to hearing from you! Best regards, Stefano - Vatican Guided tour team

This was a basic guided tour, and just a glimpse of the Vatican Museum. Our guide was personable, spoke English well, and packed as much historic information into this short tour as possible. We got our money’s worth.

We had skip the line tickets and got to the desk really early. We were advised we could upgrade for a guided tour that would be leaving in 20 mins...it was explained that even though we had "skip the line" tickets there would still be a queue of an hour for everyone to get in. Glad we did that as we saw the queue as we passed with our tour guide.
This is where we learned so much about the Vatican - our tour guide MARCO was so enthusiastic and his knowledge about it was amazing - we had a good history lesson! His English was excellent and he kept us laughing from start to finish! Thank you Marco, you made our trip very memorable!

Liv tours was excellent from check in to the end to ensure we could find transportation. Our guide MASSIMO was fantastic, his knowledge and narrative far exceeded our expectations. His care of others was evident by how he was alert and helped others along the way with health issues and questions pertaining to locations… I highly recommend this tour company and if you lucky enough to have MASSIMO as your guide you will not be disappointed! A must see while in Rome.

The tour guide was excellent. Very informative, however there was an issue with the booking that made it very inconvenient. I made a mistake, which I corrected 2 days prior, which was verified via email, but was not reflected when we arrived. Had to wait 4 hours for our tour

DEBRA was awesome. Great storyteller, excellent knowledge of the sight and art, and excellent at organizing a group of over 20 in a speedy and efficient manor. She always had us at the front of every exhibit and would get others to clear so our group could congregate.
