Vatican tour with Lia was AMAZING!
Sep 2020
We met Lia our tour guide across the street from the Vatican museum entrance right on time. Unfortunately though there was a slight slip up when the company booked our tickets to enter and we had about a 30 min gap. Lia made the time fly by as she gave us a brief history of Rome, the popes, and how the Vatican was built as we waited to enter. Once we entered, it was a AMAZING tour and I feel like Lia could right a book about the entire vatican, she was super knowledgable and answered all of our questions. Lia spoke perfect English and would walk and talk with us the throughout the museum. Unfortunately, since we spent so much time at the beginning waiting to enter we only had the option of doing the Raphael paintings or the basilica, we chose the Raphael paintings as the basilica is free entry and can be done on our own. It all worked out as we spent 1.5 hours doing the basilica on our own and even took the elevator and stairs to the top of the dome. SO WORTH IT!

Hey Sean! Thanks for taking the time to leave us some positive feedback. Normally we always aim to buy entrance tickets 10 minutes after the tour starting time, this is just a company policy which helps in case customers are running late, or having troubles finding the meeting point. I'm very please to hear that Lia kept you guys entertained in the meantime though! She's a fantastic guide with a wealth of knowledge so I'm very please to hear your experience with her was so positive. I'll be sure to pass along your comments personally. It was wonderful hosting you over the weekend, we'd love to have you back next time you visit! All the best Sara Crown Tours

Great tour
We spent a very enjoyable 3 hours with our tour guide Monica of Crown Tours. She was extremely knowledgeable explaining all aspects of our tour upfront & during the tour. Not an easy activity with the number of tours & people. But with her flag & headsets our group of 10 were well informed on the artwork, sculptures, priceless antiquities etc held by the Vatican. Bear in mind even skip the queue tours means a queue to actually enter the Vatican Museums. Moving through the Museums to the Sistine Chapel with its very strict protocol of no knees or shoulders on show (they actually will not let you in if not suitably covered - both Men & Women) during a walk around the garden Monica explained in detail what the paintings depicted & their history, setting us up well to gawp at how amazing the ceiling truly is. On to the Basilica & again the same protocol of no knees / shoulders on show. A truly amazing experience made enjoyable by a great guide - thank you Monica.
