Visited the Vatican for the 3rd time!

This was my 3th time visiting the Vatican and every time I experienced something unique. I found the museum to be extremely amazing. there was so much to see and you actually can’t grapse it in a single visit. As a veteran visitor of the Vatican I highly recommend this tour to book. You won't be disappointed.

Early morning tour is the best way to go

If you are planning to visit the Vatican with your family, I highly encourage you to book an early morning guided tour. My business partner recommended rometourtickets and heard a lot of good things about this company. Our guide Lucy was unbelievably enthusiastic and engaging. She has been a guide for 12 years. This experience totally worked out, she explained everything in a very good way that made everything so lucid to understand. Her understanding and in-depth knowledge behind the arts, history, the building was amazing. Her dedication helped us to get the best out of this tour and made this tour an unforgettable one. This is by far the best early morning tour I’ve even enjoyed in the last 10 years. This company deserved an award for organizing such amazing tours.

Enjoyed to the fullest

Rome tour tickets did an amazing job. When you have professional services from a company with an expert knowledgeable guide, there is no way not to enjoy the tour to the fullest. I argue to book this tour from here if you are really looking for an amazing experience in the Vatican tour. This morning tour took a place in my heart.

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!

Artwork all around you!

My friend and I took an early morning breakfast tour before accessible to the rest of the people. Had breakfast just next to the company office. After having breakfast we started the tour of the museum. The arts are exceptional and the Sistine chapel was unbelievable. Can't take pictures in the chapel but just seeing it was phenomenal. A must-see if you go.

We were blessed

We were surely blessed to pass an unforgettable time in this tour. We did the Colosseums tour with this company and we were so happy that made the choice easier to book the Vatican tour with this company. Early morning tour is the ideal if not the best way to experience the Vatican. My mom spent a great time in the Basilica. Wonderful time spent!

The best artifacts we had seen

A truly amazing place to visit. It was best to visit very early in the morning tour before the Vatican opens to the public. The numerous rooms with fabulous frescoes and art were mind-blowing. St Peter's Basilica itself was just excellent. The keys of St Peter, the centerpiece altar, the Jubilee door, the embalmed remains of past Popes to the fountain of holy water, all were mesmerizing. Book an early morning Vatican tour and enjoy it without in a noisy way.

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.

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.
