Guide was exceptional. She showed us all the interesting small things to give the Vatican meaning. Well worth it. A Must-do when in Rome. You can walk for hours in the Vatican and not know what you are looking at. This tour summarizes it all.

We really enjoyed this tour. As promised it got us past the incredibly long lines and allowed us to spend time in the Raffaello rooms and the Sistine Chapel, as well as St. Peter's itself. Francese was a knowledgeable and entertaining guide. Of course, we only saw a fraction of what was available in the museum but the time we did have was used well. We also had the privilege of seeing the director of the museum which, from Francese's reaction, was rather like taking a tour of the White House and bumping into the President. That she knew him by sight was a tribute to her very deep knowledge of the art and architecture which she shared with us.

Very informative tour of the Vatican. Highly recommend to anyone visiting Rome. We had a very knowledgeable and witty tour guide cannot remember her name at the moment which added to the experience.

This was a fabulous way to view the highlights of the Vatican. Small group and early morning time was key to make the experience more personal and avoid the crowds. Tour guide was very knowledgeable. Pay attention to instructions on where the tour is to meet, however. The designated meeting point is in front of the Vatican Museum and NOT in front of St. Peter's Square.

Don't remember the name of our tour guide but she was an Italian lady. She was great and she also made sure she made eye contact which make it extra good as you feel like it's a price tour. Skipping the line is a must so this was great, she was very knowledgeable and taught us a lot. Very passionate
