We booked a tour to the Vatican Museum and Saint peters basilica, but just used the first portion through the Vatican Museum, as we have been able to get into Saint Peters the day before. Had we been continuing on to Saint Peters, I would have been disappointed that the tour didn’t stay longer in the museum, but because we left halfway we were able to go and see the other artworks, including those by Raphael. We were also very happy that our tickets allowed us to skip the line, because it was a very hot day out and the line was around the block!

We had one hour of trying to get the correct hearing apparatus for each member of the group. None of them functioned properly with the guide’s apparatus. As a result, instead of the 3 hour tour we paid for, it basically was 2 hours! The guide kept saying it wasn’t his fault. An attorney with our group spoke with an agency representative who literally refused allowing him to speak, interrupted him and said there may “possibly” be a partial refund. Another member of the group said WE WOULD NEVER RECEIVE A REFUND! This tour was very disappointing since we paid for three hours. The guide was knowledgeable and had no issue with him. Poorly run organization.
