  • Fe, (Felicity), our tour guide for the Vatican, was wonderful. I cannot praise her highly enough. I highly recommend her. Her knowledge and enthusiasm for the tour was infectious. I have 2 children, aged 14 and 11, and they felt able and welcome to ask questions, which were answered in detail by Fe.

  • The perfect tour, the guide was knowledgeable and smart. The skip the line tour is the only way go at the Vatican.
    There is so much to see and experience and having a guide take you thru helps to break it down into lovely stories and sections.
    Highly recommend.

  • This was a great tour! Our guide was well-versed in the material he presented, and he had a solid command of the English language. The starting point was easy to find. My only criticism is that it took some time to process everyone and get the tour underway. Regardless of this glitch, I would recommend this tour to anyone.

  • Good experience -- worth the ticket.

  • This tour was amazing. Our guide Fe was incredible, so much information delivered in a passionate and captivating manner. Lots of quirky little facts and insights into the history and the art she was describing. We were entertained and educated the entire tour. Highly recommended, fabulous art and beauty at every turn.

  • Best tour ever our guide was full of information and made sure we got to see everything no rushing.

  • We would highly recommend this tour! Our guide Fe was absolutely brilliant. She presented information about all the areas we visited with easy to understand language but with such enthusiasm and passion. It really brought everything we saw to life! And she really knew her stuff! Must do! Amazing!

  • We ended up having only 4 people in our group, which made for a very intimate experience. For the life of me, I can't remember our guide's name I think it was Maria, but she was great. I like how she had a binder with photos of some of what we were seeing, as it was sometimes hard to see all of the details--especially in the Sistine Chapel. Our guide gave us a lot--almost too much!--information to put what we were seeing into context. We were able to cover quite a bit of ground, and I feel like it was an extremely efficient use of our time. Definitely worth doing!
