Amazing tour.

We took this tour as a last minute option and we were a little scared of how it will go. Well it went amazingly well, the tour guide had all the knowledge about Vatican and explained everything perfectly and we saw a lot of interesting places and things we would have missed otherwise, so I can only strongly recommend to get this tour as you will not be disappointed.
