  • Too expensive for the tour and the guide tour was boring and not well informed about the tour . The tour begin late and the guide tour wanted to finish early. We have a little discusión for this situation .

  • OMG! Don't miss this opportunity if you have even the slightest interest in seeing the interior of the Apostolic Palace. I had high expectations and they were surpassed. We noted the group tours there, with headphones. I have to tell you, having a private Vatican guide gave undivided attention, and we were able to see the rooms without having to strain through the large groups present. The luncheon afterwards was amazing, both in the food and the view. I can't wait to go back and do this again.
