Went beyond our expectations. Our tour guide Sara was fantastic. Her knowledge of history and art was impressive. She provided a great level of detail but still kept it entertaining. She was excellent at moving the group through the crowds and positioning the group to get the best views.

Wirklich empfehlenswert!
Ich würde jedem eine geführte Vatikantour empfehlen. Unser Reiseleiter, Gabriele hat diese Tour zu einem unvergeßlichen Erlebnis gemacht. Er hat uns umfangreiche interessante Informationen vermittelt, so daß die Führung 4 statt 3 Stunden dauerte. Was ich besonders gut fand, ist, daß er uns anhand von Fotos die Hauptgemälde der Sixtinischen Kapelle im Vorfeld erklärt hat, bevor wir sie gesehen haben. So wurden wir auf bestimmte Details aufmerksam gemacht, die wir sonst während des 10-minütigen Aufenthalts in der Kapelle übersehen hätten.

The best tour
My wife and I just took a tour and our guide was Maggie. Maggie is hands down, the best tour guide we have ever had. Her knowledge, personality and passion made the tour for us. She took the time to learn where everyone was from and used that to communicate with people during the tour which made the tour feel more personal. If it is possible, request Maggie and enjoy your tour!!!

Being in the Vatican was an amazing experience and Mina’s knowledge made it that much better. He gave us an in depth look into the history, art and theology behind the amazing place. I would take not that for not being busy, it was still really crowded. Thank you again Mina. I would definitely recommend this trip to my family and friends

Perfect
The visit was perfect. Our guide was Davide who was very professional, nice, and passionate about his job. His English is perfect. Took us around the Vatican as if it was his own home. Let us look around and take pictures while explaining everything in detail and telling anecdotes about the history of this magnificent piece lf art that is the Vatican. The tour included the Vatican museum (not the gardens) , the Sistine chapel and the St Pietro basilica. Does not include the climb to the top of the dome. I would completely recommend this tour.

The guided tour and especially our guide Alberto exceeded our expectations and gave a very knowledgeable, well structured and interesting insight into the most important and worth seeing exhibits of the Vatican and St. Peter's Cathedral. Alberto was always able to share his in-depth background knowledge and made our tour an unforgettable experience. Again with pleasure!

Nous avons réalisé une visite guidée avec Paolo SORO. Un guide super intéressant, très vivant, il arrive à nous intéresser sans nous prendre la tête. Nous avons beaucoup apprécié le personnage, ses explications et analyse ainsi que le tour réalisé ensemble. Une longue visite, certe (3h), mais une visite qui a été rendu unique part les explications et la volonté de notre guide Paolo. Je conseille et recommande vivement.

We took as a family fast track for visiting Vatican through Enjoy Rome agency and it was worth it we were a group of 20 guided by a professional tour guide named Massimiliano we entered V fast and the guide was very helpful. Details were mentioned questions were answered and always with a smile and sense of humor although the tour was long it was very interesting and pleasant thanks enjoy Rome

Maggie, our tour guide, was so engaging and enthusiastic. She had so much knowledge on the Vatican and she made the tour really fun and personal by getting to know us and answering any questions we had too. I’m not on for booking tours much, but I’m really glad I booked this. It’s well worth seeing St Peter’s Basilica, Sistine Chapel and Vatican Museum.
