We were very impressed with this tour. Our tour guide, Elisabetta Bonafede, was quite knowledgeable and passionate about the Vatican and its contents. She took her time and was very thorough in giving us as much information as she could.

This tour is not cheap, but we thought that it was worth the cost. You get into the Vatican at 7:30AM, beating the crowds. The large tour groups and the general public are admitted at 9AM. At that point it is almost impossible to walk...More

Thank you for your comments. Taking a morning tour of Vatican does help to avoid massive overcrowding of Vatican Museums. 0730 am is a very early start, later departures at 0800 am and 0830 am are also available allowing the guests to access the Vatican...More

We were persuaded to take a tour of the Vatican and it was worth it. Our tour guide, Monica, was great and full of information. The tour took about three hours and without it we would have spent that time queuing. We learnt an awful...More
