EXTENDED TOUR DESCRIPTION

The Raphael Rooms on our Complete Vatican Tour

MORE THAN THE SISTINE CHAPEL, THE BEST OF THE VATICAN MUSEUMS.

Our Complete Vatican Tour goes beyond the expected to give you a real insight into the Vatican City. From the Sistine Chapel and Raphael Rooms, to incredible ancient sculptures you may never have heard of. We’ve drawn up a route through the Vatican Museums that visits all the sights you knew you wanted to see and some surprises you didn’t expect. And because we know it’s the stories that make a visit memorable, we’ll focus on them.

The pièce-de-resistance, of course, is the Sistine Chapel, where Michelangelo spent eight years of his life on his now-famous frescoes. By the time we arrive at the chapel, you’ll know not only the story behind the paintings, but what they mean and why they’re so renowned.

St Peter's Basilica, on our Complete Vatican Tour

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. We’ve timed our Complete Vatican Tour to guarantee that you’ll always have a tour inside the basilica (not to mention skip the lines!) because you’re really going to want a guide once you set foot inside.

Built over St. Peter’s tomb, the basilica is one of the world’s most important Christian sites and the world’s largest ancient basilica. It’s also one of the most striking architectural spaces, taking the best minds of the Renaissance more than 120 years to complete. Inside, we’ll explore Michelangelo’s Pietà, Bernini’s baldachin, and the chair of St. Peter, among other treasures.

Small groups & expert tour guides

EASY, ENTERTAINING, ENGAGING, COMPLETE.

We’re passionate about the Vatican – crazy about the art, architecture and history behind those huge walls – and our guides are too. We’ve spent years growing a team of experts that share our passion and who want to share that passion with you. While many operators fit 25 people plus in a Vatican tour group, we keep all of ours to only 15 people or fewer, so you’ll find it easy to keep pace with your guide, to hear them (we have headsets too) and to speak to them. Ask all the questions you want – our team love to show off and work hard to engage you.

To make your Vatican tour even easier and to be sure that you’re getting the best from every precious second, we use privileged entrance at the Vatican Museums and St. Peter’s Basilica, bypassing general access lines that can stretch for hours at each site during high season.

This tour offers an uncompromising, unhurried exploration of the world’s most fascinating independent state, for those that want a truly complete Vatican experience.

5-stars from over 1238 Customer Reviews

Toni was an excellent guide.
It was a good tour. Depending on how the guide held his head, his speech was quite choppy. In the future, he could possible wear clothing that allows him to clip the microphone in a better place. Very knowledgeable.
Emma was wonderful! My mother has a back injury, and Emma pointed out spots my mother could sit, which helped on a long tour.
Anna was a wonderful tour guide! Incredibly knowledgeable, thoughtful and very funny at times. She made our visit in Rome that much more special. Thank you
We had a lovely tour, Tony our tour guide could not have done a better job. She was very thorough and took the time to explain and answer any questions we asked her. I would recommend your tour to anyone that asked us. It was really enjoyable
Claudia was an excellent tour guide. She was extremely knowledgeable and such a friendly personality. You could feel how much she loves sharing her knowledge of history!
Laura was great, very knowledgeable and did well under the extremely crowded conditions.
Maria was great. Passionate about her country and she even had a treat for us when she took us behind the ropes of a small section of the Vatican museum! I did this same tour a few years ago with WOL and I thought this one was much better because of Maria!
The tour more than exceeded our expectations thanks to Sev's knowledge, sense of humor and excellent presentation. Was a great experience.
Tiberius was an exceptional guide. His combination of knowledge and vivid explanation really helped the tour come alive. So glad we got a chance to see the Vatican with him.
Boy there are a lot of people going through the Vatican.
Guide was fascinating - wish I could remember his name. I have been to the Vatican, three times before and this was by far the best tour guide.
Susana did a great job!
Great tour, guide was very informative!
Enjoyed the tour and Alessandra's presentation. A smaller group (of 6) also made a difference.
SEV is VERY GOOD
Very knowledgeable guide who also kept the group moving through the crowds to the points of interest
I am a world traveler. OUr guide was outstanding!! I wish I could do more tours this trip with your company in Italy.
Susan was great. She explained everything in detail and it helps that the tour company kept the group small.
This was a comprehensive, educational, and enjoyable tour. Our tour guide was knowledgeable and engaging. Our only suggestion for the future is that a few more minutes are dedicated to the Sistine Chapel. Thank you for offering this tour.
Just perfect. My only comment is to better define the meeting place. I suggest the courtyard instead of the "Main Entrance" as we were not sure which side is considered the main entrance. The courtyard is clearly identifiable. Perhaps a better way to identify the tour guide.
Incredible tour. Our guide Emma was amazing, her knowledge and conduct we admirable. We had a great tour and would highly recommend it to other people.
Give her a pay rise. She never stopped talking. Worth every penny. Would have been hell without her.
Tiberias was the best tour guide we've ever had. His passion for history and the arts just flowed from him. He was very knowledgeable and the next time we're in Italy, we're going to go for another tour with Walks of Italy. It was awesome!
My guide was actually Anna not Camilla. Anna was very informative and lots of energy and personality!
We had Francesco as our guide and here was wonderful. He was patient with our questions and very knowledgeable on the subject matter. We have a tour of the Coliseum booked, I hope we have him as our guide again!
The tour was just stunning! We loved it very much! Ema is the best guide ever! Many LOVES from Ukraine!
Camilla did a very good job in guiding us and showing us around. Thank you so much.
The tour guide was very friendly, knowledgeable and enthusiastic. 10 out 10. Thank you for your great service.
Felix was very a very good guide i recommanded him!
we had a great tour. was definitely worth it and especially to skip the lines!
Absolutely pleased with the service
Our guide was knowledgeable and fun!
Fabrizio was the best.. Fantastic... Knowledgeable.. . Funny ... Can't say enough great things about him
Dario was our guide and he was very knowledgeable and entertaining. We enjoyed his tour very much.
Hard to hear the guide at times but she was good
The tour was fantastic and our Guide even more so. 5 stars to Tiberius!
The guide, Marisela, was very knowledgeable, engaging, and sweet. Her english was excellent and she did a great job keeping the tour moving, even despite major Easter weekend crowds.
Very pleasant experience. Nice and helpful guide - Mrs. Camilla. No stress in spite of huge crowd waiting before the museum and inside the museum. Family Brodnik (SLO)
Camilla was the guide, brava and intelegent and also with a sense of humour. Well done keep it up.
Francesco was incredibly knowledgeable and funny! A great experience!
Our guide was AMAZING!!! THE BEST!!!
Sev was really great. He clearly knows his stuff about this place. (And there is a lot to know about.) So, five stars plus for him. (And, yes, we will definitely be recommending this tour--as well as the others--for anyone we know who is going to Rome.)
SAMs as above! Outstanding! I will make some comments on your page!
Camilla was fantastic. Beautiful smile, pleasant, engaging, and did not rush us one bit. I would highly recommend this company to anyone planning a trip to Rome.
Luciano was a fabulous and informative tour guide!
Loved our tour! Our guide was very organized, attentive, gracious and very knowledgeable. I would recommend Walks Of Italy as the "must have" tour company for anyone visiting Vatican City.
Great tour of the vatican with Mama G our guide was very informative
As with our Colosseum tour, this was first class with an amazing guide. Can't recommend highly enough.
LOVED our guide. So knowledgeable and funny. Will definitely use you all again if in the city I visit!
She was brilliant. Answering all questions and at the same time navigating our group around the numerous 'traffic jams" so that we were able to keep moving. Full marks!!
I had the best experience with Sev. He made the experience so much better for us. He is an excellent guide with not only knowledge (I refer to him as an open encyclopedia) but he is also very passionate about history and art. I have already recommended the tour to other people.
Guide was brilliant
It was a phenomenal experience. Our guide was engaging and fully knowledgeable. Top of the line
Francesco was great! Very knowledgeable and enjoyable to listen to. Although the tour was a bit rushed, it was still incredible to see everything! Just wish we had more time to look around but it was very busy and closing early for Easter services. Not Fransesco's fault.
Laura was an amazing guide. We did other tours and she was by far the most knowledgeable guide we had. The time went by so fast but we were able to see everything we wanted. It was a great tour and would recommend it to anyone looking to go to the Vatican.
Marta was excellent. Very professional, informative and friendly!
Giovanna was a brilliant tour guide and she ensured that we had a lovely morning tour. She was highly knowledgeable and enthusiastic about the tour. We had a brilliant time and would recommend the tour to anyone visiting Rome.
The tour was excellent and informative. I appreciated being able to skip the lines, having an earpiece, and getting information that I might not have gotten on my own.
Maristella was amazing! Very nice and extremely knowledgeable. Her tour was the highlight of our visit to Rome. Thank you!
Jeb was terrific at leading us through the crowds and telling us about all the art and history we were privileged to see with him.
Everything was top notch. Guide was personable, knowledgeable and knew all the ins and outs. Would highly recommend.
My friends took the tour and said it was wonderful. The guide was informative even though there was a lot to see.
We will always look for your tour when traveling. She was awesome funny and knowledgeable Thank you
What an incredible experience. I was somewhat skeptical going in, but our guide was organized, personable and extremely knowledgeable. Our entire family had an amazing and memorable tour.
I will forever remember these tours and forever tell those who will listen that to go to a city for the first time and not look your company up are doing themselves and the city an injustice. Keep up the excellent work and thank you.
Lucinano personally remembered everyone name. She would direct conversations right at us individually while she was giving us the history as if she was only talking to us individually. She was amazing.
Very informative, big mama g was great and provided a lot of information.
Theresa was a rock star! She was just lovely--very knowledgeable and with great energy and enthusiasm. We very much enjoyed the tour!
Great tour! Francesca was wonderful. The youngest person in the group was my 6 year old daughter. You would think she would have been bored after 5 hours of talking but Francesca was so good and entertaining that my daughter still remembers everything! Excellent tour! Thank you!
Our tour guide was awesome and really made our tour !
Fabio was amazing and very entertaining. If I could give him more stars I would. Very good trip and insightful.
Judging by the size of the crowds we were glad we booked ahead. Our guide was excellent and made the tour a very special and memorable experience.
We had a great tour! Our guide was very friendly, enthusiastic and knowledgeable. I'm happy that we chose Walks of Italy to visit this beautiful place.
Dario's presentation was flawless and the use of headsets was very helpful! He exuded knowledge and enthusiasm. I found the tour to be extremely informative and well orchestrated, despite the crowded circumstances. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone visiting Vatican City.
Great guide under tough crowded conditions. She was excellent
We went to several tours in Florence, Rome, and Munich. Our tour guide for our Vatican tour remains our favorite. She shared so much information with us but her passion for the subject made it fun. She really made our trip to the Vatican a memorable experience.
Great value walks. We had a baby and everybody was so helpful. Great tips from guides on what to do afterwards.
Lovely tour, and our guide was fantastic. Really enjoyed doing this and being able to have such quick and easy access to the Vatican Museums.
She was excellent as well though not the art expert or enthusiast our first guide was. But she was quite competent and thorough, very good but not outstanding.
Great tour!! Thank you to our guide and thank you to the company for accommodating us when we accidentally missed our tour and were able to get the next available date at no charge! Much appreciated!!
Wonderful tour. Our guide was very friendly and let us ask lots of questions.
Our tour guide was very knowledgeable about the different art works at the Vatican. His enthusiasm and passion was so obvious, it is difficult not to fall in love with the entire place as well.
Excellent tour. We loved it!
Dario was not only knowledgeable about the Vatican, he was passionate about the art and its history. Thankful we chose this tour
We loved Francesca! She was a wonderful, knowledgeable, and engaging tour guide. Give her a raise!
Would recommend this tour as extremely informative and the guide was very knowledgeable and personable. Excellent visit
Excellent guide with great knowledge and enthousiasme to share it. Friendly, passionate, everything you'd want.
Not quite enough time to have guide in St Peters. Not fault of guide. She was great. I think u need to add a half hour to tour.
Awesome!
radio had some issues with static & cutting out Guide was very informed, easy to understand and pleasant
Thoroughly enjoyed the tour. The guide was amazing would definitely recommend
Excellent tour!! Our guide was brilliant very helpful and informative throughout the tour. Considering the extra busy crowds as the Colosseum was closed the guide did extremely well in keeping the group together and making sure we saw all the features within each room.
IT was a incredible experince to take a guided walk of the Vatican,. And I will warmly recommend friends to take this walk as well. I loved our guide, the best probably, she thoroughly new the everything about the Vatican and I listened to everything. I had a great experience!!!
The tour guide spoke incredibly good English, she was passionate about the subjects she spoke about, very knowledgeable. Bearing in mind how busy and crowded the museums were she was very good at looking after the group and very patient. She was fantastic and we got to see a lot.
Even though the Vatican was very crowded and I worried about losing sight of our tour guide, she took us through the Vatican expertly and shared all of her knowledge in an enjoyable and informative way!
Great value. Very knowledgeable. Easy to talk to
Our guide provided a personal touch, engaged his audience, joked around and really made our Walk of Italy Tour memorable. I would highly recommend this tour for anyone!
Even in March the lines were incredibly long, skip the line tours are well worth the extra expense. The Vatican is an amazing place to visit but I found some of the tourists there were in a rush, our guide did her best to keep us out of the way.
It will be great to include the rooftop of St Peter's Basilica.
It was great. I only wish they gave us time to buy souvenirs
Guide and organisation were great! We enjoyed the tour very much.
Nice tour, guide who really knew what she talked about.
Beata was great! She was very knowledgeable and we learned things we never knew about Vatican City.
Our Guide Susanna was AMAZING! Very great tour and we will recommend you for sure!
So glad I took this tour -- I would never have been able to navigate the crowds at the Vatican on my own, and Enza was very knowledgeable.
Very good guide.
I really enjoyed the whole tour and thought it was well organised and very informative, I would have been totally overwhelmed and probably would have missed so much if I hadnt been on it. Highly recommended!!
The guide Angela was wonderful. We could sense her passion for the history and art in the Vatican and that made us want to learn more about it too. She managed the group of us well in the crowded Vatican museum. Pace was good.
Again a very friendly, entertaining guide. This tour wasn't so enjoyable as the last, but that is no reflection on the guide, but more to do with the volume of people in the Vatican....and nothing you can do anything about.
Laura was fantastic! I will recommend this tour and Laura to anyone I know. I certainly plan to be back again and would try again for Laura as well if that is an option. The experience was beyond our expectations. Thanks!! Samantha and Taylor Morrow
Maria was amazing, and very knowledgeable and excited about the information she had to share with us!
Hard time finding starting meeting point
The guide was knowledgable and I got the best experience on this tour!
We did 5 tours with Walks of Italy and they were all amazing. Thank you. Will definitely recommend to friends.
The tour was wonderful and elleanora was a great guide, she was enthusiastic and charismatic in carrying the tour. We enjoyed our time thoroughly!
There is so much amazing art work on this tour, it was a little overwhelming. Raphael's Apartment was so crowded that we didn't get to stop and look at the art, but that was not your fault. Again, all of your tour guides seem to really love their work and were happy to answer all questions.
Our guide, Francesco, was very knowledgeable and passionate about art. He made our tour extremely interesting and the tour group was just perfect. A great experience!
This tour was fantastic. Luigi was a great tour guide and definitely made the experience great. He pointed out important things to look at and took his time answering any and all the questions from the group. Would highly recommend for anyone.
Great, friendly and informative guide, Ismael. This is my second time doing the Vatican tour in less than six months and I absolutely enjoyed Walks Of Italy.
Our guide Angela was great!
Loved the Complete Vatican and our guide Lisa was very knowledgeable and easily understood. Would definitely recommend.
Loved the tour and guide, if could change anything - it seemed a little long, would love to have shortened it by 30 min.
Guide was excellent! Will definitely recommend!
Toni was a delightful tour guide and very knowledgeable!
My family and I absolutely loved mr. T. Even though I wish that the tour would have consisted more about the Catholic church and the beliefs. I still love all the detail that he gave us in reference to the artists and their Fresco's.
We really enjoyed the tour, our guide was fantastic. We appreciated her knowledge, and simple style. It made it easy to keep up, and she seemed confident and very well organized... and very approachable. Loved what we saw, and we are still laughing about seeing Sylvester Stallone!
Antoinetta/Tony was a wonderful guide! She explained things so thoroughly yet in a way that was easily understood. She made the tour both interesting and enjoyable with her knowledge and pleasant personality. We loved it!
Really helpful tour guide and the smaller group was very nice.
We loved Luigi! Excellent tour and we learned so much! Thank you!
It was a fantastic tour. The tour guide provided lots of information. I would highly recommend to people travelling to Rome to do this tour.
Great tour, we covered all the main attractions of it in a good timing. It was really interesting to know more about the relationships between the Pope´s and the painters. Very nice.

Great tour and so glad we skipped the line. Julietta was great! Funny and informative. We would definitely recommend this tour.
Excellent, knowledgeable guide! She did her best to steer us away from the worst of the crowds and truly made it a wonderful experience!!
Maria was an excellent guide. There were several children on our tour and she engaged them while making the tour interesting for all of us. She is very positive and made the Vatican come to life for us.
Doriana was great! Had lots of knowledge, was very interesting and funny. I'm really happy we chose your guided tours. Thank you
Also wonderful- we loved Julietta too! She took so much care.
Guide was amazing, had a good sense of humor, english was excellent and understandable.

Well organised and great guide. Thanks.
The Tour was great & Lucia is an amazing guide.
Our guide did a great job throughout the visit. Thank you!
Claudia mixed just the right amount of detail and overview. She was clearly an art historian and able to farm responses based on historical context.
Wonderful!
Another well informed guide with an excellent approach. She appeared to really enjoy her work.
Uta was an excellent guide, highly recommend her and your company for tours!
Although the Vatican was extremely crowded due to a special event, our guide Emma managed to keep us moving along together at a good pace. She explained the significance of things in detail, obviously knows and loves art history, and made it interesting for all of us.
Francesca was an amazing tour guide!
The tour was very informative and well worth the money. Our female guide, (sorry I can't remember her name, she was Argentinian) was superb! A real asset! Thank you for a great day!
Again, awesome and great info.
For both tours, I wish we have 15 to 20 mins to visit the museum shops since we can't go back into the museums after the tour. Other than these, the guides were fantastic. Thanks!
Small group essential to appreciate the Vatican in the extremely crowded settings- our guide was super!
Francessca was AMAZING! There was so much background information that she gave. The tour was more than I ever expected, very well organized to maximize our time. There were 6 in my family who took the tour and we could not stop talking about it. I would highly recommend your company to anyone.

I'm so glad I did this tour with your tour company. Our guide was so professional and really gave us an exceptional tour and enriching experience of the Vatican. Itwas so worth the money, and I have recommended your company to family who are travelling to Italy later this fall.
Very knowledgable guide. Enjoyed his perspective on art and preservation. Very glad we took this tour
Our guide was amazing. Despite the hordes of people and over commercialization of the Vatican museums and St Peters Basilica, our guide made the visit informative and memorable. The length of the tour and the sites shown were just right. And there is really no other way to visit the Vatican.
Our guide was delightful, knowledgeable and knew how to move the tour along with the balance of answering questions. This tour was worth every penny! Thank you for helping to make our time in Rome wonderful.
Davide was a wealth of information. Grest tour!
Great tour, tour guide was very knowledgeable and showed us lots of amazing things.

Our guide was fantastic, it really made the difference to understanding everything.
Our guide was extremely knowledgeable. We were amazed at how much detail she covered.

Our guide was wonderful. She is very knowledgeable, kind and pleasant. She really gave us excellent information and tips.

The guide (Julietta?) was excellent and very informative. Great experience and will certainly recommend Walks of Italy (a friend of mine had recommended you and I found it was worth!)
Great tour and well worth the money. Highly recommended!!!
Great tour! This was my second time going to the Vatican and I personally felt I discovered more with this tour. Our tour guide was great and knew her way around the Vatican.
the only criticism I have for this tour is that the ear piece/speaker system was pretty lousy unless the room was fairly quiet and the guide was close by
I found our guide to be most knowledgeable and learned so much! Really enjoyed the tour,
Found my guide Susanna very informative. She allowed for each member of our group to view/photograph and appriciate each area we visited without interrupting the overall flow of the tour. A great achievement considering the crowds we had to work our way through. Well done Susanna
Guiletta was amazing. Very knowledgeable and gave us a fantastic experience! The tour was more than I expected!
The guide was excellent and we enjoyed the tour a lot.
An incredibly friendly, amusing and knowledgable guide who brought history and artwork to life. We would have missed so much had we not had Alessia there to explain and guide us. Thank you for a fantastic afternoon.
Susanna was fabulous. She had great delivery, knew her stuff and guided us through the Vatican and Basillica with ease ~ amazing given the crowds!
Camilla was superb! She was so knowledgeable and informative. She did a great job of navigating through the crowds to make our visit as pleasant as possible. Seeing the Vatican through this guided tour is the only way to go!
The meeting point was easy to get to and the tour was Very well conducted and explained.. Jeb was extremely knowledgeable and made history come alive for us!!
The tour was well organised, audio worked, skipping the line was so satisfying! Camilla was personable, funny and full of information. It was a great experience, certainly worth the money. Highly recommended!
The guide, again, was terrific and made the walk through the Vatican a delightful experience. Based on our two tours with you I would recommend you to others.
We were very happy with the tour. Our guide , Francesca, did an excellent job navigating the crowds in the Vatican. We were so happy that we chose Walks of Italy because of its small group sizes.
Davide was wonderful. We learned a lot and he navigated us through the crowds with great ease.
Peru Our guide was very knowledgeable about the subject and about art history. It was enjoyable.

Felix was a great tour guide! Engaging, knowledgeable, and kept everything fun and paced. I learned a lot about the paintings, architecture, and history. It was also great that we analyzed in great detail The Last Judgment & the painting at the Sistine Chapel ceiling.
Angela was passionate and informative. She took the time to explain in great detail. She is a great guide
She was amazing! So kind, knowledgeable and funny. She was able to relate to everyone in the group- I would gladly book with her again.
Maria certainly knew her history, and was very informative. She also added humour to the tour. I absolutely loved the experience! First class tour and great value for money. I have developed a real interest in the history of the Vatican now. Thank you, Maria.
Francesco was very attentive and passionate about the area. Very difficult to guide due to abundance of people, however, he did a great job of waiting for us and enthusiastically pointing out significant art and historical pieces! Excellent job!
Great tour! We love how attentive and knowledgable Maria is!
Our guide was very knowledgeable and enthusiastic and obviously had great love of history. Listening to all his explanations was very interesting and enjoyable. We were very lucky to have someone like him as our tour guide. We enjoyed every minute of the tour Tom and Caroline
Jeb was great, navigating as well as possible given the tremendous crowds!
Susanna was wonderful, patient, especially given the insane hordes at the Vatican.
Very good guide excellent
Very good guide...he navigated thru the crowd well..explained what we were seeing and also gave us the "Italian view"Excellent tour!
Cecilia was patient, friendly and very and knew her church history. We enjoyed this tour the best
Enza was an excellent guide. She maneuvered us through what we considered to be unsafe conditions in the Vatican museum and Sistine chapel. The Vatican personnel were not welcoming or attentive to the size of the crowds in several rooms. That is not a reflection on Walks of Italy.
Toni was a fantastic guide and a vast amount of knowledge. She made the tour very fun and interesting and I would recommend this tour to everyone. Two fantastic tours with you and two fantastic guides. Thank you so much.
Davide was an excellent guide - very knowledgeable and a great sense of humor! The crowds were massive that day but he made sure we all got first class treatment. Would definitely recommend!
The Vatican was crowded but our guide did a good job on routing us through and providing thoughtful information. She seemed very enthusiastic and proud of her city.
Excellent tour, we learned a lot and had a great time.
It's so huge it would be difficult to know where to begin viewing the Vatican on your own! Our guide was able to answer any of our questions and guided us through the maze well. She gave lots of info Burt not overload.
Enza was fantastic. Her knowledge was excellent but she also looked after the group very well.
The guide was great. She kept things moving along, despite the very crowded Vatican.
Amazing give advice to bring sweets and drink as we all had sugar lies and thirst
We missed the original early tour I booked as had trouble with public transport but a local info guide phoned for us. Luckily we were transferred to another tour that day. Our guide was excellent ! Very informative !
Our guide was outstanding -- he had history in art restoration and was very well informed. He happily answered all questions and you can tell he was very passionate. He really made our experience spectacular.
The guide was great!
This tour was very good, Mauro was very informative and did a great job as a Guide. The sound wasn't great on my headset but Mauro did everything he could to improve this but it did take away from my experience.
The detailed descriptions, history and interpretation of art within the Vatican was incredible. Our guide used both humor and seriousness in his explanations. Again, we thought the tour was amazing and learned so much. Highly recommend.
Excellent and informative guide. Very good at keeping us moving slowly through the busy Vatican. Many thanks
A brilliant guide. Extremely knowledgeable and navigated the crowds beautifully. We loved her sense of humour too.
Camilla was excellent, her knowledge was superb, she's very easy to listen to and most approachable.
Loved, Loved, Loved this tour and our Guide! Very impressed with every tour we took with your company!
Mauro was very interesting and amusing. He helped us to really see the museums high points, as well as the cathedral on a busy day. He had answers for every question and kept things in schedule. I was very pleased with our tour.
this was absolutely the best way to see the Vatican- highly recommend
A great tour considering the crowds and the vastness of the Vatican museums and the grandeur of the Sistine Chapel. Uta ( forgive me if I got the guides name wrong ) highlighted it very well .
The guide was very good. She kept everything interesting. I would recommend your company!
Oota (unsure of spelling) was excellent!! She has a true passion for her job and hS so much knowledge. She was a delight and kept us mo I got along bypassing the worst of the crowds.
Very informative, three hour tour.
Tanguy was just a walking encyclopedia! We were astounded with his knowledge and ability to navigate packed and crowded rooms. Fabulous!!
The Complete Vatican Tour was well designed and executed. The audio equipment worked very well. Most importantly, our guide Bruno was fantastic in knowledge and personality.
Our guide was very well informed and was welcoming to any questions. The group size was perfect also-not too big!
Our guide was fantastic - very funny, and very knowledgable. Everything was great! Loved the tour and our guide.
Maria was incredibly well versed in the history of the Vatican. We had a great tour.
She was friendly, entertaining and knowledgeable.
The tour guide was very knowledgeable. Great tour! Thanks!
Mr T (can't remember his real Italian name) was amazing. Really funny and informative. Didn't think I'd like the tour so much but because of him and his sense of humour I did. Really impressed with all the guides for be had for this company
Tango great guide.
Juliette was tremendous. It was crowded and quite rushed but we learnt so much from her. We have since done a third tour to Tuscany on a food and wine tour with Andrea and again a great experience.
We had a great time. Claudia gave us a wonderful tour
We loved the tour! Claudia was very informative and made it very interesting. We would highly recommend this tour.
Claudia was very knowledgable and informative, she was a wonderful tour guide!
Vanessa was brilliant, funny and entertaining. So much interesting information. She was so good negotiating the crowds in the Vatican. I hate crowds but she made me feel at ease even with so many people everywhere. A great job.
Our guide Toni was fantastic! She definitely knows her history and gave us such a rich and interesting tour. I don't know if one is able to request a guide, but if so, I will always recommend Toni. Grazie Mille, Walks of Italy
Very knowledgeable guide!
Francesco was very passionate about the artwork and tried hard to show us a lot.
Susanna was very informative and made the tour great fun for us. I would recommend this tour to anyone wanting to visit the Vatican. The fast track skipping of lines made it worth every cent.
I can't remember our guides name, but she was great. She was very knowledgeable and kept the tour moving, considering the crowds. It was a lovely day and we enjoyed learning more about the Vatican.
We are so happy for selecting walks of Italy to do this tour. Dorianna was very knowledgeable about everything we wanted to know.
Claudia was a wonderful guide! Just have a suggestion for the tour. The tour should allow a brief time to purcahse souvenirs. Thank you
Laura was terrific
It was a great tour. Our guide did an excellent job with guiding us through the busy Vatican city and took good care of us.
Excellent tour. They guide was very informative and friendly. Would definitely use Walks again and recommend to friends and family traveling.
Laura was very knowledgeable, enjoyed our tour very much.
Laura's knowledge of the Vatican was encyclopedic and she did a fantastic job translating her wealth of information to the group. Answers to questions were spot-on and thorough. I can't recommend this tour and Laura's skills more strongly!
Loved Claudia! Just wished that I Had more time at the Sistine Chapel. I will definitely use walks of Italy again.
Laura was also a very informative guide & we once again learnt a lot from her. It was nice that she would invite my children to come up to the front so they could see, ask them if they could hear her & not forget that they were part of the tour. Once again, very happy we booked this tour.
very happy guide was excellent very interesting.
Luciana was funny, well versed and very accommodating to the whole group. Very much enjoyed her tour, she really brought the group together.Visual pictures were a plus.
Great experience! So glad we went with walks of Italy for this once in a lifetime tour.
Mariella was amazing. Very helpful and humorous!
Very happy with the tour and Claudias commentary provided great insights. Thanks
Our Guide was amazing! It was a hot day and very crowded and she did everything to minimize those issues. She was extremely knowledgeable and had a passion for her work and we all benefited by it. Great tour!!!!!
Guide was very, very good. It was very crowded and hot but she did the best she could under the circumstances. Again, I was thankful that we were in a small group, moving large groups through the Vatican is a nightmare. Next time we will probably do the early morning Sistine Chapel tour.
Tour guide was excellent. Will recommend your tours of Rome. Thank you
Tour guide Mauricio was super knowledgeable and did a great job

Anionetta was very knowledgeable and kept our group both moving and informed through a very busy day at the Vatican. We learned a lot and we're glad we incorporated this tour as part of our Italian honeymoon.
Our tour guide was outstanding and an asset to your organization. Only wish wish we had had more time to absorb everything!
The tour Guide was excellent
Tengo was fantastic guide. Very knowledgeable and great sense of humor.
Sergio was also fantastic. Made sure the whole group were entertained and informed. The vatican museum was incredibly busy on the day as it was closed the following day, but Sergio made sure we were always looking at something interesting. He was superb, and would highly recommend
Marta was our guide, did a great job of explaining what we were looking at as well as keeping us all together, very crowded.
Teresa was an absolutely brilliant guide and she presented the information in a wonderful way.
Loved the details and info that Francesa shared!

Excellent! I'll definitely recommend Walks of Italy to anyone I know traveling to Italy.
Great tour. Vatican very crowded but our guide handled it well.
Gus was our tour guide. He was knowledgeable, informative and entertaining
Camilla was very considerate and knowledgeable. We would lose sight of her sometimes in the huge crowds but could always hear her voice. It might have been better if Camilla had a flag.
Excellent guide. Fantastic tour
Excellent guide. English was very good. Expertise was wonderful. We have now had tours with a few companies, this WALKS is the very best.
Maristela was awesome, very down to earth. She was warm and friendly. She was a wealth of knowledge. She gave us all the good pointers as we came to the vatican at a very crowded time of year. She let us sit on the bench to conserve our energy as this was a long tour. Very thorough.
Very informative, also enjoyed the extra information/ facts provided while waiting now and then. Mostly as the facts where of recent/ current times so not only did I get a tour of Roman history but also of today. Francesca was wonderful :)
Great tour. The best part was guide - Mr. Bruno. He was the best guide ever I have seen.
Very happy with the tour. Sylvia was great.
Amazing! She knew a lot of history, the place was basically hers! We asked for suggestions and she gave them to us. So perfect!
Another great WOI tour!! Our guide, Enza was wonderful. Your tours are a cut above the rest. Special thanks to you all for accommodating us after having to miss our tour day/time due to travel delays. We will remember WOI!!
Marianna was super and very knowledgable great communication and made the whole tour fun - highly recommend - we wanted to give her a tip but when we came back with change she was gone already - next time for sure.
Excellent guide
We had a great time with Enza. She had lots of information and went at a good pace. Her English is excellent- easy to understand. We would highly recommend her.
A wonderful and informative guide. My only issue is with the sound as they were the frequency radios and were a little hard to hear at times. Our second walk was with the digital audio guides and they were much easier to hear.
Francesca was fabulous and extremely knowledgable ! She covered everything at the perfect depth. We will definitely recommend you to friends traveling to Rome. Thanks
Anna was great! She was fun, knowledgeable, and easy to listen to. Very pleased with her as out guide!
Lorenza was terrific!! Would definitely recommend !! Great tour

Elisa was an excellent guide. Extremely knowledgable and informative. All our question were answered. Elisa made an extraordinary effort on her part to ensure that everyone enjoyed the tour.
Our guide.was very good and informative. We enjoyed the tour very much and she was very easy to follow
Nice and knowledgeable guide and really enjoyed being able to walk with such a small group. Highly recommended.
The tour was great - my only complaint was that the tour guide was not allowed to guide us inside St. Peter's Basilica, but that was out of his control.
We thoroughly enjoyed the tour and the guide was excellent
So nice to be able to walk right in. Our guide was patient and super knowledgable.
Dario made sure that everyone on the tour could enjoy each item that he pointed out. He was clear about the items and we felt that we had a good overview of the collections, and that the tour was well paced and informative
Same as other tour.
Superb guide. Liked the humorous touches
