A great team at Enjoy Rome and brilliant tour guide Michele
This isn't our first time visiting the Vatican Museum and Sistine Chapel as we normally do our own research for attractions but it's our first with a tour guide. Our guide was Michele, who held our group of 30 in thrall for three hours with his indepth knowledge of the subject, sense of humour, ever present wide smile and infectious enthusiasm. Kudos too to the young and cheerful team at Enjoy Rome, especially Eeva, Dario, Mary and Loren!

Tour mit Marilena extra klasse!!!
Vielen Dank nochmal für die wunderbare, sehr lebendige und vor allem informative Tour durch die Vatikanischen Museen, die Sixtinische Kapelle und die Ausführungen zum Petersdom. Marilena hat mich mit ihrer Leidenschaft für das Thema mitgerissen und tief in die Zeit von Michelangelo et al eintauchen lassen. Ich kann es nur jedem empfehlen!!

Hallo, we made our tour with our great guide Paola for German people. She was really fit with all historical and outer historical events, her background was great due to her art historical studies and she was mega amazing, she explained every topic with great enthousiasm and all visitors followed her and listened her with great attention. Her tour was accompanied by available posters with which she explained the great works before entering and her fascination for these events jumped over to all those participating in her tour and became live... she was great and amazing and it is a real event to share her explanatíons. we can recommend her more than usual...

Sixtijnse Kapel, Museum en Baseliek
Normaal gesproken boek ik geen tour met gids, vaak slecht te verstaan en niet altijd even boeiend. In dit geval heb ik er geen spijt van. Door het audiosysteem en het goed verstaanbare Engels van Linda was het goed te volgen. Daarbij is zij een zeer boeiend verteller, goed geïnformeerd en humoristisch. Aanrader!

Skip-the-Line Vatican Museums, Sistene Chapel and St. Peter's Basilica
Michael was a great tour guide. The Enjoy Rome office tour location was easy to find. Michael's extensive knowledge of Roman history was amazing. He kept the group together and made the whole experience enjoyable. Paying for skip-the-line access was well worth the cost of the tour. We highly recommend the service.

What an amazing historical journey. Our amazing tour guide, Vosco, provided us with the most magical tour and journey...with grace and smiles. His attention to detail and soft voice made the tour much more enjoyable. We will be back for sure and hope to get Vosco as our tour guide again. A truly enjoyable Rome experience.

EIN GROSSES DANKESCHÖN AN MARILENA!
Wir waren am Montag, den 27.8. im Vatikan. Es hat alles wunderbar geklappt, Marilena war pünktlich am Treffpunkt und auf Anhieb sehr sympathisch, man merkt mit wieviel Leidenschaft sie als Tour Guide arbeitet. Sie konnte uns sehr viel zu den Malereien der Sixtinischen Kapelle erzählen und achtete darauf, dass wir im Schatten stehen. Wir hatten genügend Zeit, uns alles in Ruhe anzusehen, da wir an einem Tag im Vatikan waren, an dem nicht viel los war. Anstehen mussten wir nirgendwo :) Wirklich zu empfehlen, großes Lob erneut an Marilena!

Hervorragende Führung durch den Vatikan
Wie kann eine 3-stündige Tour bei Hitze und Menschenmassen zu einem unvergesslichen Erlebnis werden? Mit Mira! Ihre kurzweiligen, leidenschaftlichen Ausführungen haben enorm dazu beigetragen. Auch unsere jugendlichen Söhne waren schwer beeindruckt. Alles perfekt organisiert. Das Office, in dem man sich anmeldet und wo man auf die Tour wartet, ist gut gekühlt, modern und großzügig ausgestattet. Alles Top.

Die drei Stunden Führung sind wie im Fluge vergangen, hervorragende Führung von Mazilena Tamiolaki. Man merkt, dass sie sehr großes Wissen hat und dieses auch sehr gut an die Gruppe weitergeben kann.

Excellent!!
Die Touren mit Marilena waren fachkundig , informativ,, detailliert und mit sehr viel Charme und Humor durchgeführt. Wir haben selten so kompetente und sympathische Führer erlebt, denen man wie Marilena die Liebe und Begeisterung für ihr Sujet so sehr anmerkt !! Mille grazie, Marilena, bis bald !!

We Highly Recommend
Thanks to our tour guide Giulio. There is just too much to see and appreciate at the Vatican, you need someone with knowledge and insight like his. The experience gave us an interest in Michelangelo that we did not have before. We will be back to "Skip The Line".

excelente
muy muy muy recomendable. estuvimos con vicente, un tío que se le ve que sabe de lo que habla y disfruta haciendolo. hizo que las 3horas se hiciesen muy amenas y consiguio tenernos enganchados a la historia del vaticano. un tío enrollado que hizo la visita muy entretenida. (que a veces a priori estas visitas pueden parecer lo contrario). quedamos encantados. un 10!!

Une visite inoubliable !
Notre guide Lorena nous a tenus en haleine durant les 3 heures passées ensemble pour découvrir les musées du Vatican, la Chapelle Sixtine et la Basilique Saint Pierre. Avec des commentaires exceptionnels et une attention particulière aux membres de notre groupe pour ne pas manquer une éventuelle question, Lorena nous a fait vivre une visite géniale ! Une guide à recommander...

Ein schöner Ausflug, aber wenig gesehen.
Wir habe diese Führung geschenkt bekommen und hatten an diesem Tag leider Pech. Die vatikanischen Museen und die Sixtinische Kapelle hatten bis 12.00 Uhr geschlossen, den Grund kannte niemand. Deshalb staute es sich am Eingang für mehr als eine Stunde. Theresa hatte uns Gott sei Dank vorab schon viele Infos gegeben und versucht, mit ihrem Wissen diese Zeit informativ zu gestalten. Nachdem wir endlich den Eingang erreicht hatten, gab es nur Gedränge und Geschiebe, gesehen haben wir von den einzelnen Galerien so gut wie nichts. Dranbleiben an der Gruppe war sie Devise. Wenn es mal etwas Luft gab, hat uns Theresa wieder mit vielen wissenswerten Dingen versorgt und versucht, die Stimmung nicht kippen zu lassen. Nach einer nochmaligen Wartezeit bekamen wir die Möglichkeit, die Sxtinische Kapelle zu sehen. Der Hinweis von Theresa, dass man werder sprechen noch fotografieren möchte, wurde durch das Sicherheitspersonal so gar nicht eingehalten. Hier ging es auch zu Beginn nur avanti, avanti. Stehenbleiben und das große Wandgemälde am Eingang bewundern? Schier unmöglich. Auch manch Reiseleiter hielt offenbar nix von Stille und Ruhe, es wurde erklärt und diskutiert. Theresa hat sich mehfach für diese Situation entschuldigt, für die sie so überhaupt nichts konnte. Ich finde es nur schade, dass so Organiationen von solchen führungen nicht irformiert werden und hunderte Menschen auf Teufel komm raus durch die Varikanstadt "geschleift" werden. Die Tickets waren aufgrund dieser Organisaion leider nicht das wert, was wir uns versprochen haben. Schade.Theresa hat alles richtig gemacht und auch sehr gut. Die Organisation der Vatikanstadt hingegen ist glatt durchgefallen. Für Teresa gibt es daher volle Punktzahl.
