Our guide Silvia was excellent! We had high expectations for the actual art and place itself but really got blown away by the spectacularity of it all even though we have spent our share touring the churches across Europe including various cities also in Italy.

What a great day! It was beautiful. Our guides were very informative. The winery/farmhouse lunch was fabulous. This is a must do if you want to get the essence of Tuscany.

Well worth the money. Jessica, an art historian, was our guide and did not disappoint. She knew her history, was attentive to each member of our group, and also added some fun to the history. Highly recommend.

We had a fantastic visit to the Vatican with our guide Francesca who was smart and friendly. The sites were fantastic, and the group was small enough that we didn't feel overwhelmed by the crowds.

The hassle of catching multiple trains and connections to reach Pompeii from Rome was what drove us to book this tour. Our group was small (only 8 of us in total) and we were with the wonderful Jonathan! The tour was perfect if you enjoy...More

If all you wish is to skip the line, you can buy tickets directly on the Vatican’s website instead of using third party companies and sabe money. The Vatican is very crowded all year but even more in the Summer months. I... More

There is a lot of walking involved, but it’s all at a slow place with lots of breaks. The meeting place is right beside the Vatican museum entrance, and the Sistine chapel is inside the Vatican walls.
