We thoroughly enjoyed our tour of the Vatican with Elaine. She was a wonderful tour guide and provides us a wealth of interesting information. It was apparent how passionate she is about her job and was able to keep our 10 and 11 year old daughters interest the whole time. A big thanks to Elaine for such a great morning!

The tour was excellent. The explanation of the Sistine chapel, Raphael rooms and other works of art really allowed me to fully grasp and understand what I was seeing as well as the history of the Vatican

We had a wonderful tour. Eva led the tour and Slob came along, too. Eva has great enthusiasm, and knowledge and welcomes questions. She was able to answer all of our questions with much wisdom. Dress code: shoulders are to be covered and knees covered. Regular cameras and cell phone photography are allowed except in Sistine Chapel. The Vatican art and history were amazing and the courtyards are beautiful! The Sistine Chapel was amazing. This experience was both holy and fun. Thank you both for letting us sign up for a tour just the night before. Our college age children really enjoyed it, too. We purchased a few things from the gift shop and we ate afterwards at the restaurant next to the pinecone in the courtyard. The atmosphere of the restaurant was spectacular, the food was wonderful and the prices were very reasonable. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Jeanette was great, very knowledgeable, friendly and knew the best parts to show in detail to maximise the experience. In retrospect I'd made the assumption that more of Vatican City might be open to the public, but the museum itself is more than sufficient to fill a day.
