It was a nice tour, the guide was really skilled & knowledgable. The issue was that there were some tourists joining the tour last minute which transformed our tour from 4 people to 8 people. This incurred a delay with getting tickets of like 30 minutes and the guide didn't have audio receivers with her. I guess that was because initially we were supposed to be 4 people which is small enough.

In any case, the guide was nice, well meaning and gave us loads of tips! we ended up staying in the museum before heading out to St peter's square. I would recommend to the organization that they start in the square and end in the museum so people can continue exploring afterwards without missing parts of the tour.

p.s. i would still recommnd taking a tour. there are usually 30k visitors a day and these times it was 90k per month, sohuge difference. We spent 20 mins in the sistine chapel, that was great!

Dear Guest, thanks for your feedback. We are very sorry you have experienced a delay albeit we struggle to avoid similar inconvenience as much as we can. It's great to hear you enjoyed the company of your tour guide and that you had the chance to admire the Sistine Chapel almost empty - we appreciate your taking the time to share your story about it on TripAdvisor.

The guide was good, he knew his history and was able to answer all my questions. However, it was really fastpaced, you didn’t get to spend much time in each spot, but I guess the tour could then go on for hours as there is so much to see.
Definitely worth purchasing a tour guide to really understand and appreciate the artwork and the history.

The tour started a bit delayed because people didn't show up on time which is definitely not the company's fault.

Our tour guide was giving us clear instructions and he seemed quite knowledgeable. However, he didn't seem to leave time between his explanations for questions etc. At times, he wasn't engaging enough but I could see that he was trying. I liked that he explained the paintings before going into the Sistine Chapel so we could have a better understanding of the story behind them.

Before entering the Vatican, we were a given a headset so we could hear our tour guide and this was done quickly!

Overall, I enjoyed the tour and it didn't seem too long.

We are honestly and deeply impressed by our guide Alessandra. Her attitude, passion and love to her job turn out the tour as an amazing journey throughout the human history and art. The tour triggered so many inspirations and willingness to explore more and seek for further knowledge sources of information and this is the same for our children which is at most importance. The Vatican museum in my opinion is a place that every human being with passion to history and art should visit but this place should be accompanied by a guide as Alessandra that can bring you spiritually and emotionally back to history with so many important facts and reflection.
Alessandra we are all impressed by your love to what you are doing

The tour itself was very interesting and informative, but the volume of people doing the tours was massive and after everything with COVID it was a bit scary. You don't realize that you will be going alongside so many other tours until you are actually inside of the museum. Our tour guide Paola was excellent, she was very kind and considerate to all involved in the tour. St Peters Basilica was breath taking and a lot more relaxed due to the fact that there was so much more space to feel comfortable with.

Dear Christine, thank you for choosing us and partaking our Vatican Museums guided tour! We’re glad you found the tour worth it and your local guide Paola an excellent company… However, we’re extremely sorry you didn’t feel safe! We can totally understand that. We’re at the peak of high season and the removal of Covid limitations or restrictions allows more people inside the Museums. We bet though most people followed the basic safety measures like wearing masks and keeping their hands sanitized. Best regards, Gray Line Rome Feedbacks Team

We booked a Vatican tour for a small group (we were 5) in French (Vatican museum/Sixtine Chapel). Our guide, Nicoletta did a great job: very interesting visit, very friendly and always taking care of finding a good path for us among the high number of visitors. I strongly recommend.

We booked this tour with a morning start and it was the perfect time; we finished right around lunch before it was too hot. Our guide, Christina, was very good about keeping the group together even in the more crowded locations. She was friendly, very informative, and great at answering everybody’s questions.

Giovanni was engaging, fun, and had all the steps easy and ready to go, we had the “whispers” walkies in our ears and it was great to be able to stray away and see all the magnificence of the Vatican. All the while hearing all the knowledge of the highlights rather then get lost in the endless art. This tour is a must!
Thank you again for such a great first experience of the Vatican! I’ll never forget it
