  • The experience and tour were great however, there was a lot of waiting around the whole day. This could have easily been a half day tour, not a full day. We had selected to be picked up at our hotel in the morning and they showed up an hour late from the time we were confirmed. The waiting time from the papal address to the museum tour was way too long. I would recommend the experiences on this tour but not necessarily getting this particular package since we felt like we wasted a good part of the day waiting of people of the tour agency.

  • Amazing tour and experience. I would suggest the tour without the lunch instead. It took a long time from the papal mass to the guided tour at 2pm. I would suggest starting the guided tour at noon because it allows you time to eat something at the Vatican and you don't have to wait until 2pm!
