Enjoy a guided tour of St. Peter's Basilica (and no lines!)

Located outside of the Vatican Museums, St. Peter’s Basilica has its own entrance and its own rules, with limited hours for guided tours. Our Complete Vatican Tour ensures that you get inside the Basilica (not to mention skip the lines!) with your expert guide to enjoy Michelangelo’s Pietà, Bernini’s baldachin, and the chair of St. Peter, among other treasures.

A truly complete Vatican experience

We’ve spent years growing a team of passionate experts who want to share the Vatican with you. Combine them with a small group and you have a recipe for sight-seeing perfection! We also use privileged entrances at the Vatican Museums and St. Peter’s Basilica, bypassing general access lines that can stretch for hours at each site during high season.

Jaber was a wonderful tour guide and I have absolutely no complaints. My experience of Rome would have been drastically less interesting and more stressful without his confident, informative presence.

Mario was extremely knowledgeable and engaged our group through out the tour. He gave our group many extra details which made it all the more interesting. Mario answered every question that our group posed to him with clarity and completeness. This was our first tour with Walks and our first time visiting Rome and we were very pleased with our tour. Since this was our first time in Rome we were not sure where to catch a cab back to our hotel. Mario picked up on our consternation and offered to walk us to the cab stand and spoke to the cab driver in Italian on where we needed to go. Mario went above and beyond the call of duty from beginning to end!
