Tour was excellent---I would definitely not have learned as much about the history of the location as I did with our tour guide---plus the skip the line is a must---when we were leaving, the line was 3.5 hours long! Do yourself a favor and book the morning tour, it's less congested. Our tour was very small there were only 4 of us so I think that makes the experience so much better because you can stay close to your tour guide and she can speed up/slow down when we wanted to spend additional time somewhere.

We had the most pleasant informed guide anyone could ask for! We skipped every line and she took the time to explain everything and answer all of our questions. We felt like we were the only people there because of her! She truly loved her job and helped us to get a full experience. She even sat down with us over cappuccinos to explain what to look for and what to see when we entered the Sistine chapel as you cannot speak when you enter. She was WONDERFUL and we would definitely recommend this private tour with skip the lines. Worth the money!!!

Our private tour guide brought alive to us the many stories and history of Vatican City. I was traveling with my eight year old and he tailored it in such a way, that my son was totally absorbed and intrigued by the history lessons that surrounded us. Highly professional and informative. AMAZING!!

the tour guide knows a lot. I was not comfortable when she brought us to the store to buy souvenirs instead of bringing us to the store inside the Vatican near the St. Peter's Church. When we brought us outside, we can't go back to the store inside.

This was the highlight of our trip, made even more special with the private tour guided by Ala - She was amazing - knowledgeable, patient, interesting and just made every aspect of the Vatican Museum, Sistine Chapel and the Basilica educational and enjoyable. We were four in our party and did not feel rushed - plenty of time to take photos and inhale the beauty of this beautiful site. Would highly recommend the private skip the line tour - and Ala - if you are lucky enough to get her as your guide!

I can't say enough good things about Sev and our tour. My husband and I were on a cruise and arrived a bit late to the Vatican, but Sev was there waiting for us. He gave us a personal, insider tour of the Vatican, the gardens, the Sistine Chapel and St. Peter's Basilica. We skipped all lines and it was WONDERFUL! It was seriously the best part of our trip. Sev was AWESOME! Thank you so much!
