A small group of us were in Rome for a few days, and toured various places throughout the city. This particular Vatican Tour was by far, hands down the BEST tour we booked. Our guide Roberta was genuinely passionate and seemed truly excited to share her vast knowledge with us.

Dear Guest, thanks for booking with us and reviewing your experience discovering the Vatican Museums, the Sistine Chapel and St Peter's Basilica. We appreciate your feedback, too. We'll try to be clearer in our write-ups about where the tour ends, which is always outside St Peter's Basilica near St Peter's Square. That is the specific design of our 3-hour tour to the Vatican Museums. Warm regards, the Gray Line I Love Rome Team
