    David was our guide and he facilitated the tour very well. Everything in this tour is just amazing specially if you're Catholic since you'll see first hand all religious articles of our church... And it's really convenient to have someone explained the facts rather than reading it. Thanks for a great tour David (not John) hahaha

What To Expect

The Vatican has been commissioning and collecting art from the early days of the Catholic Church and the Vatican Museums, Sistine Chapel, and St. Peter’s Basilica contain a treasure trove of western art, including many masterpieces from the Renaissance era. Explore the Vatican collections on this guided tour with fast track entry. Over 6 million visitors come to the Vatican museums every year, so there are always long lines to get in. A professional guide will pick you up at the meeting point and lead you to a Vatican Preferred Partner entrance that will allow you to bypass the queues and head straight into the museums. The collections in the museums are vast and can take hours to explore. The multi-lingual guide will introduce you to some of the better known highlights of the collections, including the Gallery of Tapestries, Gallery of Geographical Maps, and the Raphael Rooms. After touring the galleries, head into the Sistine Chapel and admire the magnificent frescoes on the walls and ceiling. Don’t miss Michelangelo’s masterpieces in this room, especially the frescoes of *The Last Judgement* and *The Creation of Adam*. Once you have completed the tour of the museum, head into St. Peter’s Basilica to see one of the holiest shrines in the Catholic world, and the resting place of St. Peter, founder of the Catholic Church.

    Very very crowded. Guide was busy trying to get us through. Didn't have much time explaining about the place. Lack information. Not recommended if you do not already have some background knowledge yourself... Otherwise, the fast track of getting in with this company was really useful. But once you are inside, everyone is going the same way.

    Thank you for raising your concern to us. We sincerely regret to hear that you had unsatisfactory experience and we take your feedback extremely seriously. Your case has been noted and passed to the local operator for further improvement. Your understanding will be much appreciated.
  • Hoi Yee 11 Nov 2018
    This is part of a local walking tour with international participants. Great that entering as a group is fuss free as compared to queuing up as independent tourists. Queue looks perhaps 1-2 hours long. Guide's knowledge and English proficiency is really by luck. Our Vatican guide seems lack of passion and professionalism. However in another activity at Colosseum, the guide was great and engaging..
  • KARTINA 2 Nov 2018
    The guide really knowledgable. if not mistaken the guide name is sylvia. She is also helpfull. everything is perfect during the tour
  • Pei chen 31 Oct 2018

  • Qingyang 25 Oct 2018
    Rita is an excellent tour guide. I highly recommend this tour.
  • KAI PONG 24 Oct 2018
    Tour was a bit rush, the museum was basically a walk through, but explained very well the painting in sistine chapel which was amazing. Ended inside the st Peter basilica and free to walk around in the basilica again.
  • Nga wun 23 Oct 2018
    The tour guide was kind and funny. She also was helpful and cared for everyone. Went to most of the important places and the tour guide gave us great info. And the best part was we were able to skip the line, to be in a short line of tours.
  • Jia Hui Kalyn 22 Oct 2018
    Interesting walk with a lot of interesting stories. 95% of the walk is done indoors, and there were just way too many people (probably because it was a Saturday).
  • Chun kit 21 Oct 2018
    Very worthy for the interest of time. You can skip the forever queue with this tour, which may take you a few hours to line up.
