The visit was good with good explication and visit, but it was a pitty that we saw so poor of the most rooms of the museum because shortness of time. Although we could go back to the museum after visiting the Sistine Chapel, which was ok! Overall it was a good and interesting visit.

When starting our tour I wasn't so sure. This older guide with a walking stick started to slowly guide us towards the vatican but appearances can be so deceptive. I cannot remember his name but our guide was amazing. An absolute character. You could walk around the vatican for a year and whilst the experience would be thoroughly enjoyable you could learn nothing. Our guide was a wealth of knowledge. He knew so much. He never stopped firing information at us. He was clever and whitty. I would highly recommend him and this tour

Tour was great!! A must have for anyone visiting Rome. Skip the line pass to top attractions in the Vatican. Issues were not as long as they said the tour was going to be suppose to be 3hours finished in just over an hour and a half and maybe a little pricey for the length and did see it cheaper with other companies.
