Tour of Vatican

The guide was wonderful humorous and very informative. I don’t think a trip to the Vatican would be worth it without have someone with that much knowledge narrating your tour. Unless your from Rome an archeologist and an art historian I would highly recommend taking this tour.

Our guide did amazing job taking us through the Vatican and Saint Peter’s Square. So much to look at it was a great help to have someone that could point out key things that we would appreciate noting.

Difficult to understand Julianos English. Good when he was pointing and explaining concrete thing, like in Raphael rooms. Everything else, general informasjon about the place, got lost for me. Would easily have read what was interesting to know. Would prefer to go on my own instead, much cheaper and more possible to control where I would spend time. Inside sixtine chapel and St.peters church they can't guide, they have to tell things before entering. There was no line to skip when we were there (few tourists).

Highly recommend taking this tour. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and it’s nice that they grab all the equipment for you such as radios, maps, ear pieces, and tickets. Very easy and worth every dollar. Our tour guide went above and beyond!
