The tour itself was very good, with detailed explanations of things to look for the history behind them. Our tour included the Vatican museums, Sistine Chapel, and St. Peters Basilica. Be aware though, the tour company will steer you to their affiliated gift shop off tour, while passing 3-4 on site gift shops on premises.

our guide Roberto was hands down THE BEST! There isn't a review good enough to explain how satisfied we and all the other tour participants felt about our experience with Roberto. the way he explained every detail if the history of the vatican and sixteen chapel was mesmerizing. the words he used to describe the paintings, the politics, the drama, the humor... everything was remarkable. as a catholic myself and my wife who is muslim... we both came out the tour knowing so much about how everything was created. I am floored of how great Roberto was. I know there are many great tour guides out there. but trust me when I say you want to book with Roberto. you will. it regret it. 5 starts!!!! ciao

the 3 hour tour was just a perfect length of a tour like this, we got a very good know-how about the buildings- the areas- history. The guide was very good both on telling and stop long enough at each place there it was some extra to tell a story about. She was speaking good English.
