Fantastic tour!!! My wife and I had gone to the Vatican Museum, Sistine Chapel, and St. Peter's on other trips however, we wanted a specialized tour since we were bringing our 10- and 13-year olds to Rome to learn a little more about the world we live in. It was fabulous, we walked straight in the group tour skip the line lane to the security area it took all of a few minutes -- well worth the savings of the 2 hour wait outside in the normal entrance line. This tour was just the right size and accomplished everything we wanted it was great since everyone could interact personally with the tour guide. While there were some questions asked, the tour guide was excellent and she provided so much information on key architecture, statues, art, etc. that one was left with a very satisfied feeling following each area of the tour. She reinforced everything she talked about with documentation showing different eras and depictions on the topic to help all to better understand the history involved in the is wonderful place. One memorable moment was when she presented a book of the Sistine Chapel and went over the design and each of the paintings prior to your entrance to the Chapel. This helped pull it all together since one can be overwhelmed since there are so many paintings on the walls and ceiling of the Sistine plus you are not supposed to talk while in the chapel so this was key and she did an excellent job in conveying the information to all 10 years old to people that were in their mid-60s.
After finishing the tour, you could then go on your own to the catacombs or the up to the cupola if you desired.
I would highly recommend this tour for anyone looking for a memorable experience to the Vatican!
