Our guide was very helpful and informative. She greeted us immediately at our meeting spot. She introduced herself and gave a quick run through of how the tour would go. She stated expectations and rules. She listed out to dos and what to lookout for. The museum’s are breathtaking and it allows you to see centuries of history. The tour gives you insight to the creations the live within and how the pope’s lived. Those moments will last a lifetime.

This is the second time I joined a guided tour to Vatican City. The tour is organised and the guide is professional. She was informative and took good care of the group which was around 20 people and made sure that all members stayed together as we went thru the museum and the Sistine Church. In the end, she led us to skip the long queue to visit the St. Peter's Church. Would recommend to join this tour by City Wanders

Together with the Colosseum this was top of our ‘must do’ list on our first visit to Rome. It was a truly fascinating visit experience and one not to be missed. Our tour guide - Juliano - was as enthusiastic as he was knowledgeable and was engaging from start to finish. The Bluetooth kit used performed perfectly. If you’ve visited Rome without making this trip you have missed out on a gem.
