This is spectacular tour! You shouldn’t miss this! This is gorgeous tour! So much sculptures and art in general. Just WOW! Our guide was woman, sorry I didnt get her name, but she was briliant! All funny and kind! All knowing, with all the anegdotes and jokes about popes and Michelangelo and museums as well. Her english was very very good so it was pretty easy to listen. This tour is so tiring and demanding, and lasts about 3h. And there is so many details that you cant even process your thoughts, and you are standing by the next big thing. We were really tired, so bring water and really comfortable shoes.

A very well organized trip. Even though we booked it only 1 week in advance, we were able to visit the Vatican Museums and the Sistine Chapel on the exact day we wanted. Getting a ticket on your own was not realistic. Plus, skipping the queue is a big plus. The guide was very good, she guided us through the most important rooms in an efficient way and focused primarily on painting.

We had an evening tour with Marilena as our guide. She studied art history and architecture, her knowledge was enormous without getting lost in details. She guided us through the museum with good time management and drew our attention to details that we would not have noticed. It was great that you always responded very kindly to a primary school child in our group. A very good tour!
