Vatican Tour
No queues for us on this great tour round the Vatican and to St Peters. Danieli V took us with another couple on a tour round the Vatican. His talks were interesting, knowledgable and fun also. It was strange to be there during this pandemic as we had the time to stop and look at the wonderful pieces of art and historical artefacts. The Sistine chapel was spectacular and having the chance to see it properly was wonderful. I would highly recommend this tour and our guide, a truly enjoyable day.

I would change the order of the tour, so people can spend more time in the vatican museums
Sep 2020
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!

Sep 2020
Fabulous tour of the Vatican museums, Sistine Chapel and St. Peters Basilica with Rita our wonderful tour guide. The tours were quiet and Rita led our small party of six participants through the history and stories attached to the history with her very extensive knowledge making it an unforgettable experience. We were very comfortable with the tour and would urge everyone thinking about travelling to Rome to do so with visitor numbers down the covid risk was handled so very well. Just go ahead and do it!

Dear Michael, thank you for your review and we're sorry you couldn't hear your guide well. We believe she would have immediately corrected herself the moment you addressed her and made her aware of the issue. Anyways, we appreciate your feedback and your four-star rating which corresponds to a positive experience with us discovering the Vatican Museums. Kind regards, the Gray Line I Love Rome Team
