Guide was highly knowledgeable
"We thoroughly enjoyed our tour around the Vatican. We found the 2 hours to be the perfect amount of time to be able to soak up as much information as possible while not being exhausted. Our guide was very knowledgeable and flexible."
Visit to the Vatican
"This tour made what could've been a LONG wait to see the museum painless! The guide was very passionate and knowledge about the masterpieces. We didn't have to wait in line - which was amazing . I have never seem such a crowd of people. I would highly recommend booking this tour if you want to see the Sistine Chapel, etc. It's worth every penny."
Führung Vatikan Museum
"Die Führung war sehr gut und informationsreich. Es hätte für die Fülle das doppelte an Zeit gebraucht. Einzige Bange war der Startpunkt. Wir wurden tatsächlich erst zur Startzeit abgeholt und ein Büro o.ä. gibt es dort nicht. Hat aber alles funktioniert und wir waren am Ende total happy."
