Our tour guide was amazing and super knowledgeable. I went on another tour to the Vatican and Sistine Chapel years ago and learned more on this trip than I did when I went the first time. I highly recommend this experience to anyone hoping to have an engaging and insightful tour of the Vatican and Sistine Chapel.

This Vatican City tour was amazing. We had no idea how large the museums and residences are. The collection of art, mosaics, frescos and statues is very impressive. To see Michelangelo’s works in the Sistine chapel with our own eyes was incredible. St. Peter’s Basilica is beautiful and we were in awe seeing the largest church in the world.

This was well worth it for my family. We couldn’t have asked for a better tour guide. We only had one day in Rome, and didn’t want to just wander aimlessly without knowing much about what we were looking at. Our guide Thomas made everything interesting, answered our questions thoughtfully, and made it a great experience. While we didn’t have time to stop and see every small piece in the museum (it would take all day!), what we did see and learn about was well worth it.
