We went at Vatican museums on May. We arrived at the meeting point 10’ later than we should and we informed that our guide left. At the end we found the guide at the entrance and so we took the bus toor. Was a really nice activity but didn’t worth 52 euros.

Très beau jardin. Très agréable de les visiter en mini bus par cette chaleur. Nous avons été agréablement surpris de voir qu'il n'y avait pas de fenêtre vitres, ce qui nous a permis de bien voir, de faire des photos, de nous sentir un peu dehors et d'être rassurés par l'aspect ventilé au vue de l'actualité COVID. Les commentaires étaient très bien.

El recorrido comienza con el minubús y aunque no puedes bajarte de él, sí te dan el tiempo de tomar fotos y tener la explicación de cada punto de los jardines. Como otros han recomendado, te tienes que sentar del lado del chofer para tener las mejores vistas. Al terminar, ingresas ya sin problemas a los Museos Vaticanos/Capilla Sixtina. El punto de encuentro no es complicado, pero como hay muchos operadores, tienes que identificar muy bien al operador de la actividad.
