Too slow and detailed
Daye_I

I just really wanted a brief description and access to the three venues. The in-depth history lesson was just too much. While I am sure some were happy, others found it too detailed for a general visit.

The guide kept it short and to the point. very knowledgeable about the subjects. Constantly giving us pointers to avoid long lines. Great tour and would recommend to friends and relatives. Well worth the cost.

The tour was very informative as the guide Roberto was very knowledgeable. What we saw on the tour was incredible and mindblowing, and a must see. The problem was the tour was so erratic and sort of a "fly by the seat of your pants". We started from behind and spent the whole tour rushing to catch up. Instead of meeting at the tour site, we met at the office of the tour organizers. We also had to wait for about 100 people to check in. Six groups all checking in at the same time. So we left the office about an hour after the planned departure. We then walked full speed to St. Peters, only to wait 45 minutes in line for a skip the line tour. We spent about 30 minutes inside the Basilica only to be herded off full speed for about a 20 minute walk up hill to the Vatican museum, where we waited 30 minutes for our guide to buy tickets. We got about 1/3 of the way through when people in the group started leaving because it had been over 3 hrs. In total we stayed 4 1/2 hrs before we left early. Over 8,000 steps total. I'm not sure why the tour was "organized " the way it was, but we should have met at the museum, and ended at St. Peters Basilica. If you take this tour you will learn a lot, and you will walk up hill very fast. Not a tour for people that need to walk slow and enjoy and a slower pace.

Amazing tour and tour guide

Robert is a knowledgeable tour guide who knew everything about this tour. He is likeable and funny and very engaging. This was a highlight of our Rome trip! It was just a day before the pope proclaimed ten new saints so being in Saint Peter’s Basilica and seeing all the preparations was a really memorable experience! Thank you Robert! You’re amazing

I was skeptical to book a tour because i like to just do things myself and get the cheaper tickets directly. This tour was worth every bit. It makes sense why it so highly rated. Norman our guide was great and knowledgeable. He made the experience really easy getting into the basilica as well as the museum. I would definitely recommend this experience if you're considering it. I don't think anyone in my group regretted this tour.

Great place not so Great tour guide!

The tour of St. Peters, Sistine Chapel and Museums was full of awe and splendor. Our only critique was our tour guide. He was in a rush to get to places. My wife was walking with a cane and many times we were left behind to fend for ourselves trying to catch up to his frantic pace. He did not seem to be passionate about giving the tour. Don't miss this tour it is well worth the price. Hopefully you will get a better tour guide!
