My husband was so happy at the end!

My husband was not ready for this tour but I insisted on visiting the Vatican. You might think who doesn’t want to visit the Vatican if they are in Rome! But he was kind of blah blah! Finally, he agreed and we went to the museums. He ended up being the happiest person after finishing the tour. 3 hours is actually not enough to complete this tour because the magnificent arts deserve more time standing in front of them. Taking pictures inside the Sistine chapel is prohibited otherwise would have taken some shots. Book this tour and you’ll be amazed!

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!

Truly enjoyed this tour

In my opinion guided tour is the best choice for a tour to the Vatican museums. Our guide Ricardo was just amazing. He described the background in such a magical way that makes the art and history more interesting to us. I truly felt without him it was just impossible to complete this tour in a perfect way.

Passionate and professional guide

I must say it was a very enjoyable, knowledgeable, and very interesting tour with our professional guide Serverio. He made this tour very worthwhile because he knew so much about the history of the museums. I Would thoroughly recommend taking the Vatican tour with a very professional and knowledgeable guide. Whenever I visit a country and book a tour to a popular attraction, a guide is must to take the best of that tour.

Guided tour

Myself and my partner booked onto the Vatican tour. It was a small tour group. Our tour guide Francesca was terrific. She had such enthusiasm and her knowledge was outstanding. She was informative, engaging, welcoming, and friendly on all aspects of the tour. She was able to answer questions of a wide range of questions from everyone. Highly recommended.

Wonderful time spent!

The Vatican Museums belong to the most important and richest museums around the world with an outstanding collection of priceless artifacts to view. Exploring the Vatican Museums is a must if you’re visiting Rome. There are also so many amazing ceilings and works of art by Raphael and Michelangelo. Must take a guided tour or the audio guide to understand all the details of the museum.
