Nice tour despite the amusement park-like herding of people through the museum. Guards were a bit rude to visitors. Didn't like that if you missed seeing something the guards wouldn't let you retreat to look again. The tour itself was beautiful!

So much to see. In an odd way we were glad we went during Covid as in 'normal times' we suspect so many Rome sights would be too busy to gain the best benefit of a visit. This was definitely one of those. It was still busy and at times quite large groups of people were very close, although all were wearing masks. Having said that it was an amazing place to visit.

Very interesting and cool to see all the bones! Didn't know much about the crypts of capuchin before coming to Rome but I think it is a hidden gem and must to see! The tour wasn't too long so didn't take up too much of the day and close by the Spanish steps so could see other popular tourist attractions nearby. Our guide Guilano was informative and kept the topic light with some jokes since seeing bones can be pretty dark.
Amazing service. This is the kind of company and people you wish to find when you are visiting a city for the first time. Dario and Mary made our experience even better. Even after the vaticano tour with Mrs Mary (which was absolutely perfect, Mr. Dario kept helping us through what's up.. 5 stars
This is such a unique experience and the guide (I apologize for not remembering his name) was very knowledgeable and passionate about the crypts. I recommend this tour if you like topics off the beaten path.
Much easier and quicker to get in with this ticket.
