Awesome glory

We have visited the Vatican on our break to Rome. We purchased this tour from Rome tour tickets and we weren't disappointed. We got quick access to enter the Vatican. Inside the museum, the artwork, statues, marble floors & ceilings are out of this world. As we moved around from room to room, every painted ceiling was more stunning. From Bernini's sculptures to Raphael's paintings, The Vatican is a must if in Rome.

Mix experience

Next if I am visiting Rome, I would choose the hotel near the Vatican. We were so late to reach the meeting spot. Though the company helped a lot and kept answering over the phone. It was a little difficult for an old couple like us to walk a lot maintaining a good pace. It required much focused time to see each attraction inside the Vatican. We have to visit again for some unseen parts of the Vatican.

Fantastic day out

In this tour what most impressed me was the marvellous Sistine Chapel. The most famous and impressive Sistine Chapel demonstrates perhaps the very best of the Renaissance era, featuring the works of Botticelli, the master - Michelangelo, among others. From ground to ceiling, it is simply covered by gorgeous works of art, no wall space goes to waste. Thanks to our guide Mira who narrated all the important details so meticulously that made the tour more enjoyable

This tour was really great

This was our first visit to Rome and this visit was the best understanding. The Museums were phenomenal, the exhibitions stunning. The tales about the early Popes, Michelangelo and Raphael were so fascinating and engaging. The frescoes by Raphael were inconceivable just like the ceiling that seemed, by all accounts, to be designed however were really painted. Obviously the Sistine Chapel was striking and the Basilica overpowering in its size and glory. Laura was an exceptional guide, educated, obliging thus entertaining. A great tour indeed!

Fantastic tour of Vatican City

This company is so great and helped me a lot. I missed the tour timing and couldn’t reach the meeting spot at time. I was so lucky that they offered us a place to their next group without any extra payment. Heart warming thank you from the deepest core of my heart for this genorisity. The tour experience was superb. The work of arts are so wonderful, the structures are fabulous, the church is opulent with so much history. Also our tour guide was very energetic and proficient about everything. This company deserves a huge SHOUT-OUT for organizing this great tour.

Professional Service from a great tour company.

Had a wonderful Vatican tour just two weeks ago with my father. We were a little late to reach the meeting location but one of the agents from the tour company was there to pick up. Our Guide Caroline was incredible. So much information made the tour considerably pleasurable. I would suggest booking your tour with Rome tour tickets for any visit in the Rome city.

Well spent 3 hours

We did this just not to say we did, but the whole 3 hours spent on this tour were so great in my opinion. Four of our friends who joined our group, surprisingly they also loved the tour since they were not attracted to the historical things. Our guide Mira was very skilled and knowledgeable who narrated every detail in a very enjoyable way. I must say we had a very good time there. From this experience, though you are not a history lover, you should visit Sistine Chapel for once. Who knows you might fall in love!

Worth the whole day spent

We paid for skip-the-line ticket and just within 15 minutes we were in. We avoided all the queues to get to the Vatican and that’s the beauty of skip-the-line access tickets. It saved much time and made our visit more enjoyable. Beauty of the architecture and the numerous works of art in the Vatican amazed me. Wonderful place which every traveler must visit in Rome.
