    Had no idea there was a meeting point 1.3 miles away from the Vatican. We automatically went to the Vatican looking for the tour. Called the office and tried to get another booked and got hung up on 3 times.

    Made the trip to the Vatican on June 28th, 2018. We were not told in advance that because of the holiday planned for the 29th that there would be a massive line. This was not a skip the line entrance. As there were others who were able to pass much faster than us, we were in line for roughly an hour prior to entering vatican city. We were told that that wait, even for guided tours, was caused by the holiday but the idea of skip the line was not close to reality.

    The tour was of roughly 30 people. Guide was nice and knowledgeable and spoke well in English. The disappointing part was because of the long wait, the tour was rushed, as St-Peter's was closed early because of the holiday the next day. She mentioned Highlights multiple times to be understood it would not be a thorough guided tour.

    And even though I had booked with Quo Vadis tours, I was part of a Maya tours group, which I don't know if that has any impact. Needless to say, the tour was satisfactory but keep in mind the skip the lines part may be BS.

    Everything about this tour company and the guide was amazing. Our guide, Ricccardo, was an absolute winner he was knowledgable, friendly, and more than patient with our elderly father, who took longer than expected to get around the Vatican Museum. The tour seemed to get better and better as it went on, and we would highly recommend this tour company and Riccardo to any/everyone.

    Really good tour through a really busy environment. Tour guide was so knowledgeable and good with kids too. Really enjoyed our day here and probably wouldn't have seen half of it without our guide. Thank you.

    This was a good experience, but maybe a once-in-a-lifetime tour. The artwork was amazing. I loved that the guide told us to touch everything. The Sistine Chapel was amazing. The tour was basically informational and entertaining. It was very hot, though. If you are not used to the hot and humid atmosphere, your enjoyment may be hindered. I was exhausted after this trip and didn't want to do anything else.

    Be aware that this tour does not include the price of the actual museum. I did see it in small print on the voucher, but that doesn't show up in the actual description of the tour so I was confused. I was also charged 20 Euro for the ticket which had 16 Euro printed on it, so I'm not sure where the other 4 Euros went. Tour itself was fine, just think these needs to be made more clear on the booking site and in the description.

    This tour was fantastic. Our guide Francesca was so knowledgeable and friendly. She gave us a lot of information and showed us some before and after pictures of many of the sites. We were supposed to be 10 people but ended up with just 6, so she was able to talk to us on a personal level and share her information. She took her time and the tour ended up being more that the 2 hours stated. I would recommend her as a tour guide to friends and family.

    Wish the guide would have showed us more and talked less. Started with a 25 minutes in their HOT office showing pictures from a book on Sistine Chapel....I came to see the Chapel not pictures of it in a book that kept falling on the floor when she changed pages. Next was to the Vatican Courtyard for another 20 minutes in the hot sun of pictures and story.
    Two and half hour tour and about 10 minutes inside the Chapel...So many interesting things we went by so fast we did not have time to see....BUT we can tell you all about how they make Tapestry.
    Guide mentioned 2 people previous day said they came to see the Vatican and Chapel, not stand in sun looking at pictures and she gave them directions and let them go. She mentioned several times if you decide to leave the group let her know so she does not waste time looking for you. Sounded like this had happened several times before. Plus after playing on arrival we were told we had to pay additional 40 entrance fee. Why not put it all in one package? Guess it would make the tour look to expensive that way.
