Would have loved to spend more time in St Peter's Basilica. Overall amazing tour and experience. Can't remember the tour guide's name would love to get his name and thank him he was just brilliant.

Rome in August is simply hell in terms of tourist attractions and the lines that lead into them. My father and I were extremely happy to have booked this skip the line tour particularly after seeing the Vatican Museum/Sistine Chapel line and the massive St. Peter's line that stretched around the whole square.

In terms of the tour itself, I myself am a tour guide who has been known to by quite judge-y of other guides in the past, but our guide Max was great. His knowledge was exceptional and the way he expressed it was entertaining. He also possessed that typical tour guide humour, so expect a couple of cheesy jokes!

My father and I had a great time on the tour and I would highly recommend it to anyone wanting to skip the ridiculous lines and/or who would like to know more about what they are looking at.

Max was our guide. Very informative and good sense of humour.

Hotel pick up was on time. Skipping the line was such a bonus. Our guide was very knowledgeable and explained the areas we toured very well. Great overview of the Vatican.

While instructions were spelled out clearly, I didn't realize the bus had come by our hotel to pick us up until the tour was over! We had never confirmed that we needed pick up, but certainly appreciated that option. But out guide was wonderful, and it is truly satisfying to be able to walk past the long lines and have special exits in certain places along the way specifically in the Sistine Chapel since we were with a tour group. Our guide was entertaining and very experienced and knowledgeable.

Pros: Our guide Emilia was very lively and funny. She took great care that no one in our group got lost and described each objective in detail.

Cons: the meeting point was a street away from the one described in the ad. But if you call them they will provide directions and help you.
