A delightful tour of a beautiful, sacred place. This tour was just what we wanted - a unique view (from the duomo) and a knowledgeable tour of the basilica and the underground. Our tour guide was fantastic and paced the tour perfectly for our group. I recommend this tour for anyone looking for an intimate look at St. Peter's and an adventurous view from the top of the world!

Wonderful, well informed guide. (Sarah/Sandra?) great tour with fantastic views over Rome from top of cupola, well worth the tight, interesting climb. Would highly recommend.

Beautiful and informative tour and guide with time to explore on our own after, would definitely recommend and go again!
