Great day at Vatican

Starting with a delicious breakfast, we got everything that an extraordinary tour should have. It’s definitely less crowded in the morning than the general opening hours. So, it’s greatly recommended to book this early morning tour. Avoiding crowds is always a plus and will help you to observe everything from close range. The well presented explanation from our guide Nora took us to the ancient time of Rome. Everything has a history and her expertise proved it with fun, enjoyment and humor. It’s no wonder why the Vatican is the ultimate tourist destination. A memorable day spent at the Vatican!

Excellent group tour of the Vatican

Our hotel was a little far from the Museums so the owner of this company suggested booking the slot starts at 8.30 am. We easily reached the meeting point and had a nice breakfast. Our children enjoyed the sandwich. After that, we headed to join the rest of the people in the group. It was our first trip outside of our country so we all were excited. Sistine Chapel and Basilica were great to see. Mira, our guide was incredible. He engaged us all throughout the Trip. She even convinced the Swiss Guards to take pictures with our children. We couldn’t be much happier. Everything was so great and we had a wonderful time.

Excellent tour of the Vatican museum

From breakfast to arrive at the route of the visit everything was perfect. My wife and kids appreciated those three hours so much. After doing this tour they are now asking for other tours. We would totally recommend this company for its professional and supportive services.

Gorgeous paintings and sculptures

Before our tour started this company welcomed us for breakfast next to their office. This breakfast service was included in the tour. Then we entered without waiting in the line as it was an early morning tour so the Vatican was less crowded. Our guide showed us all the areas of art and sculpture including Raphael's rooms and the Egyptian area. It was a once in a lifetime encounter for us. Highly recommended!

Breakfast at the beginning was the icing on the cake.

The Vatican breakfast tour with our guide was excellent and very impressive. We really enjoyed his company and most of all his information. I would recommend the early tour to those who would like to view the Vatican museums and Sistine Chapel and Basilica with few people inside.

One of the fondest memories

I did this tour with my girlfriend from London. It was a delightful event. Having an excellent breakfast and then entering the Vatican museums before opening to the public was an exceptional experience. Thanks again to Rome tour tickets for arranging an amazing tour.

The artwork & precise detailing was beyond astounding

This tour was incredible from the start to the end. We were so blessed to be in a small group. First, we had a great breakfast next to the company office. I was awed when I entered the museum and Sistine Chapel. The St Peter Basilica was also covered in the visit. Excellent and professional service from Rome tour tickets.

The experience of the Vatican

We did this tour with a couple of my friends. There was so much to see and there's no chance to stop. With a guide as well as early access to the Vatican after complimentary breakfast and got to walk routes and shortcuts that were not accessible to the general public. The guide brought the Vatican alive with stories and knowledge that we didn't otherwise get. In the end, we walked out of St Peter's Basilica and it was money very well spent.

So many amazing treasures to look at

Early morning tour allowed for early access to the museum, Sistine Chapel, and Saint basilica. This was such an enjoyable tour. Laura was so expert, giving us complete information and authentic details of many of the works. There didn't seem to be anything she didn't understand. Having a small group intended we all were able to ask as many topics as we desired to. Her guiding was transparent and she was clear to hear too. Highly recommend this tour to anyone.

Something we will never forget

The Vatican is the spot where you could imagine how much work was needed to do all these paintings on the wall and in the ceiling. The queues can get very big here so the best way to do the Vatican tour early morning. Early morning tours will save you a lot of time and enjoy everything from so close.
