There''s no words

There''s no words to express how much we loved her knowledge and how she explained everything to the core. Especially about The Sistine Chapel... if you go in there by yourself. You wouldn''t know anything about the paintings. Federica Morichetti explained it very well!!

Excellent experience

We went on the Vatikan tour and the Sistine Chapel with our tour guide Christina Swain from the US. She was simply awesome! A real source of knowledge combined with a genuine passion and great talent to bring history close all and even to kids. Her stories were told is a clear and entertaining fashion and her sense of humour was shining through more than once. She is an expert in her field and i have learned so much more from listening to her than any other guided tour in the past. We cannot recommend her highly enough!

Awesome Service

I booked my fast track access ticket ahead of time, and then a few days before I needed to change the date of my visit. When I contacted the company they were super helpful and were able to change the date of my ticket without much delay at all. Thanks for being so accommodating.

worth the effort

We opted for early entry 8, the queues we already building. Our guide was great and explained how to get the most out of our visit. After our unhurried visit to the Sistine Chapel, we took a leisurely wander around the museums. Amazing! Worth getting up early for.

Our guide was lovely, very knowledgeable and not afraid to answer questions, its well worth booking to avoid the huge queue to get in (at least half a mile long) and take water with you
