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.

Very informative and was a great tour.
The radios could be better.
Excellent tour. Emma was a terrific guide!
The Vatican tour showed us many points of religious, cultural, and artistic interest. It was for me a deeply moving tour. Enza was the best!
excellent i would recommend this tour to my friends
An excellent tour with a knowledgeable guide. We only wish that we had gone at a time when it was less crowded. Maybe the Vatican has to start to restrict the number of people they admit each hour.

Very knowledgeable and professional tour guide. Great fun
Great job. This guide had all the answers. Will use walk again.
Luciana did a great job of herding us through the masses at the Vatican museum. Excellent job of giving us the historical perspective of the art work we were seeing. We learned much, and enjoyed her humor, as well.
Very informative tour told with great knowledge of all the layers of history of the Vatican and superb works of art
Wow. This tour was amazing. Giovanna did a great job.
It was good trip at a attractive pricing we liked it a lot , Vatican we believe almost impossible without a guide , its really worth spending money Especially WalksOfItaly I would Highly recommend
When friends heard that we were traveling to Italy they told us that Walks of Italy was a "must do". I cannot imagine taking any of these tours without the expertize of your guides. We would not have understood the significance of half of what we were seeing without them.
When confirming our tour the day before, we were told we were not scheduled. This caused considerable anxiety until much later when we were told our booking was found and confirmed.
Radio issues were dealt with well
Our Guide Gia was wonderful, my husband who rarely enjoys things, loved it. she was funny, informative all the above. the tour was wonderful.
Our guide was knowledgeable, entertaining, helpful and incredibly detailed on the venue. It was a wonderfully enlightening tour and one I'd fully recommend to anyone.
great tour
Amazing Tour!!! Thank you
Wonderful!
Great tour and the guide was very knowledgeable. I highly recommend Walks of Italy.
Our guide, Burcu's knowledge of art was extraordinary. Our visit to the Vatican museums was brilliant - we learnt so much. All the little details of the Sistine Chapel were so interesting. I can't wait to tell my students.
The tour was a pleasure, our tour guide was very knowledgeable and very informative. Susana was truly a great guide.
Enjoyable tour ....very complete and the guide knew so much, answered every question, paced appropriately......
Suzanna was a fantastic tour guide! My husband was skeptical of the tour as he's not a 'tour person' but came away singing her praises. We were very impressed with her knowledge and ability to keep everyone engaged. Well done!
This tour was exhausting however Maristella made it an awesome experience.
Enza was educational and engaging. There's never enough time to take in everything, it is overwhelming. Enza made the most of our time. Thank you.
Great tour with a brilliant guide. The pace was good and there was a lot of information given. It might be helpful to let people know that there is no opportunity to go back to any areas once they have passed through - but it was an excellent experience which we both enjoyed.
Excellent Tour with a very knowledgeable Guide. She was very accommodating to our 3 young daughters and also immediately rectified an issue with the comms when noted.
Beata was superb. She is very knowledgeable. I really enjoyed her talks and guide. She knew where to take us and focused on the main highlights. Loved every minute of her tour.
Great info from the guide!
Awesome, would recommend.
Great tour with a great tour guide. Very knowledgeable and fun. Great experience. We couldn't be happier with Walks of Italy.
The guide was very knowledgable and I can see her passion and enthusiasm on the topic. Her positive energy is a good atmosphere for those in the tour.
The sound system needs to work better. Lots of static.
Easy to understand, informative guide. Would definitely recommend walks of Italy to others.
Marti was an excellent guide! She was warn and friendly and extremely knowledgable.
Marta was wonderful! Very knowledgeable, friendly and still managed to provide a great tour through the crowds of people.
Excellent, exactly as described and the best way to see such a popular and crowded attraction.
Toni, was an excellent guide. The time flew by so quickly. She was very interesting and informative. The visit was well planned out allowing time for toilet stops etc. She cared for members of the party that were tiring more quickly. I would highly recommend this to trip to anyone.
Emma was very knowledgeable and personable. We enjoyed the tour very much and learned lots. The whole experience was very pleasant. Easy to book and clear instructions on where and when to meet. I would not hesitate to recommend Walks of Italy based on our experience.
Brilliant and knowledgable guide who was not afraid to answer any questions we might have. Very accomodating to the young children that we had in our group.
Martina was excellent and incredibly knowledgeable. We have recommmed this tour to others!
Enzo was wonderful! She was knowledgeable, patient and kind. She made the tour a lovely experience. And I loved her accent.😀
Enza was great..had a fantastic day! Well worth the money, would recommend it to anyone!
Francesco did a great job. Very informative and good humour. Some of it felt a bit fast, but I guess that is because there is such so much to see. Really glad we did the tour.
A smaller tour group (< 10 people) would have made the tour and conversations with the guide more satisfying.
Claudia was fantastic!!
Antonetta was absolutely wonderful. The group was small which we loved. It was extremely informative and thorough and I would recommend it to all of my friends and family.thank you so much
This was a great way to see the Vatican. David was very entertaining and informative and I would highly recommend this tour and this tour guide.
Every aspect of our booking with Walks of Italy was excellent. Booking, confirmation of booking, joining details, admin on the day, radio equipment and above all, our guide Ettore. Thank you to the whole team for a wonderful experience.
Maria was fantastic in every way!
Great tour! We actually missed our 730am tour and the staff made the accommodation for us to be on the 930 tour the same day. It worked out perfectly. Thank u so much!!
Camilla was wonderful. Very knowledgeable and sweet. Highly recommend guided tour for Vatican. Wished we had more time in Sistin Chapel, I could stay there forever and admire Michelangelo's masterpiece
Guide very knowledgeable, patient and thorough.
Great and very knowledgeable tour guide, Camila!! She was very nice and helpful.

Our guide was very knowledgeable and the experience was perfect. Highly recommend this tour!
Worth every penny
We loved our tour and tour guide, Maria, who was so knowledgeable. The only negative was that our credit card was hacked when we booked your tour online so we had to cancel our card and get another reissued.
Andrea was a great tour guide! He is very knowledgeable!!! We really enjoyed the tour.
Guides English was at times difficult to understand.
Mauro was very informative and took every opportunity to give the best experience possible. Keep in mind that pictures are not allowed in every part of this tour. This should be disclosed up front.
Our guide was excellent - he was very knowledgeable and covered so much ground during the tour! I learned so much!
Burcu was a great guide.She made every effect to make sure everyone in the group got all the necessary information.
Our guide was knowledgeable, passionate, and charming! She was very warm and genuinely wanted to help us learn. She made the experience quite enjoyable and I've already recommended this company with a friend who is visiting Rome in a week!

The only disappointment was not having seen St Peters Basilica.
Good overall experience
A very interesting and informing tour with a very knowledgeable guide.
Emma was great! We loved the tour! Couldn't have gotten such a great experience from the Vatican without her

Very knowledgeable tour guide, made the experience much better.
Davide was great. He was funny and was a wealth of information for our Complete Vatican Tour.
Our guide Vittorio was very knowledgeable and could answer all the questions he was asked. It was a crowded hot day and he kept us moving and engaged. The headsets were spectacular and made the Complete Vatican tour more enjoyable.

Our guide Anna was very knowledgeable and most considerate as it was an extremely hot day for our Complete Vatican Tour.
Our guide was great! I am feeling terrible that I cannot remember her name. Her knowledge and presentations were top notch! One of the best tours of our trip to Rome! The Vatican was very busy and she maneuvered the crowds effortlessly.

Excellent tour, am so glad we booked this and would recommend to anyone.
Maria was one of the highlights of our visit to Rome. She was our guide on both tours. Very funny, passionate, and enthusiastic.
The Complete Vatican was more than I was expecting and Francesca was outstanding. The only part I did not care for was the meeting location. There were homeless people with empty beer bottles and the smell of urine all around was very disappointing.
We have already recommended your tours. The Complete Vatican was excellent !!!

We had to add a family member at the last minute and the tour was most helpful! Thank you!! Equipment worked well (headphones) and guide was very knowledgeable. Tour ran right on time. Would definitely recommend to a friend!
Maristela was an excellent guide. She provided so much information and really showed her passion for the site. We learned an incredible amount and it was so worth it to not wait in all the lines.
Our tour guide was excellent. He kept the tour interesting and yet moving. Having completed a different tour today with another company it only highlighted just how good your tour was. Will definitely book through walks of Italy again!
We were impressed with everything! Just to see the ceilings, sculptures and artwork in the Vatican museum made this tour fantastic. But, walking around St Peter's Basilica was overwhelmingly beautiful. Great tour! Mike
The tour was excellent and the guide was very knowledgeable and interesting. Also the customer service was good as we were getting late in reaching the meeting point due to metro strike.
GiGi was funny. We were very happy with him. He was very knowledgeable and learned a lot from him. Best tour.
Great company, very organized and knowledgeable about the tours they are presenting. We will be back!
Marta was amazing! Thank you.
Martina was very informed about the Vatican.
Our tour guide was not only knowledgeable but also extremely entertaining. I would recommend this tour and our tour guide to others visiting the Vatican!
Marianna was such an informative tour guide. My daughter had taken a tour the day before with her study abroad group and she found her tour a little stale. We can't say enough about Marianna and her interesting knowledge on our tour!
Vincenzo was our tour guide for the Vatican tour, which is an amazing morning chock-full of incredible paintings, history and sculpture. He had wonderful background stories about the different stops in the tour that kept everyone informed and entertained.
Excellent tour. Expert guide appreciated.
Our guide was very pleasant and well informed. He made the tour fun.
Marti was sweet and very knowledgeable. It was a great experience.
Our guide, Francesco, was outstanding. As an art historian, he shared fascinating insights and helped us delve into a small portion of the Vatican experience that we could appreciate, rather than be overwhelmed by the enormity of it all. Mille graze!
Excellent tour and Camilia made it very memorabke
She's very friendly, knowledgeable on her stuff and very motherly too. She even remembered all our names in the group and will surely take care of you during the 3-hour tour.
Wonderful tour guide!
Excellent tour and guide. We learned so much and our guide was fantastic. Could not have asked for a better experience.
Toni was great & the Vatican Museums were very hectic since it was a Monday in summer but we enjoyed it a great deal.

Maria was amazing!
We had the pleasure of a tour with Vanessa. She was very knowledgable, responded well to diverse questions, and yet was also personable, warm, and sensitive to the needs of her group. She is probably the best tour guide i have ever had. Thank you!!!
The vatican tour that we had a day before was fantastic. I do not remember name of the guide. She has beem so professional.
Excellent guide and tour
Tony was great!! Would highly recommend!! I also appreciate being rescheduled to the afternoon tour after we missed our morning reservation due to the transportation strike that day.
Tour was great, our guide was Giovanni. He made the tour interesting and was full of knowledge. It was a very hot day and extremely busy in the Vatican. But glad we went and that we booked before.
Toni was so knowledgeable! She did a great job of showing us the highlights, while ensuring the group stayed together. She was amazing! Thank you :)
Angelina was awesome! She brought out the most important parts of the Vatican and had excellent rapport with the group. She kept making sure we were all together. Lovely personality. She also cared about our comfort and her explanation of the Sistine Chapel really added to the tour.
It was wonderful. Our guide was well informed and entertaining, and she steered us through the crowds with ease. Just great!
This was my first food tour, but it left a great impression on me. It was especially cool that we had a cook and a local giving the tour. I'll be sure to keep you guys in mind the next time I'm in the country, and I'll be sure to let friends know as well. Thanks for the wonderful experience!
Felix did a great job on a very hot day in a very crowded museum!
Great tour on a hot day. Really appreciated the guides passion and knowledge.

Felicia was a great guide
Anna did an excellent job and we greatly enjoyed the tour. We could not have been any more pleased. She is knowledgeable, personable, and fun. We would definitely recommend her!
Great tour! Super crowded and hot, but Burcu was a champ at keeping our tour moving and stayed positive! Highly recommend.
We had a hard time finding the meeting point. We asked a number of people for directions with little success. A priest came by and pointed us in the general direction and another tour person pointed us to the location of the pizzeria
Excellent tour - Maristella was friendly and informative
We were very impressed with our guide's knowledge of the historical significance of the artwork and the interesting connections between pieces from different eras. Would recommend this tour and especially our guide (Mr. T) to anyone!
The tour guide was friendly, funny, and full of information! We had a great time and would recommend Walks of Italy.
Great Tour. Excellent guide. Enjoyed the day!!!
It was my first time taking a guided tour in a museum and i absolutely enjoyed it. Learned a lot from our guide. She really showed us the highlights of the vatican museums. Was knowledgeable as well. Thank so much!
Elaina was amazing. She was able to explain the history of the Vatican in a way that kept you wanting to learn more.
Super busy day at the Vatican but our guide was organized and efficient and full of insight while we covered a lot of ground through the crowds.
Great tour...Guide was fantastic and made it enjoyable by joking around so it wasn't so serious for the whole 3hrs! Loved it.
Our guide was knowledgable and friendly and kept the tour moving at a good pace inspite of the overwhelming crowds!
I'm pretty much impressed with the tour and the guide, it was very informative. Unfortunately, I have to leave in the middle of the tour after finishing Sistine Chappel. Indeed it's a great tour. Keep going.
Tour guide was absolutely fantastic. It was extremely crowded on this tour, but the humor of our guide made the overcrowded venue manageable. He was so knowledgeable about everything and his presentation was flawless.
Great tour, very knowledgeable guide.
We had Sev as our tour guide, and we were extremely impressed as well as entertained. Thank you so much for a good time on my partner's birthday.
We LOVED our tour with Francesca, who was engaging, informative and funny. Booking a Walks of Italy tour was the best decision we made for a perfect vacation. Thank you!
Mr. T was fantastic.
Our tour guide, Burghi , was most knowledgeable and friendly. Excellent!
Great tour and Francisco was a great host!
Gigi was a great 5 star guide. It is a pleasure to be guided by someone with a PHD, he was really knowledgeable and informative.
Francesco was an awesome tour guide! We really enjoyed our tour.
Igor was awesome!
Fantastic tour! We had such a great guide who was very knowledgeable about what we saw and Rome in general.
Our guide was well informed and animated. She took the trouble to learn and remember everyone's name.
Franchesca is the best! Great tour guide!
Gigi was a great tour guide--very charismatic and knowledgeable. He learned our names and made the tour very personalized. It was great!
Laura did a wonderful job. She was quite engaging and we thoroughly enjoyed our tour.
Excellent tour we are so pleased that we booked tours with walks of Italy the guides were well informed, helpful and interesting. having a guide made the whole experience much more informative. Thank you
Vincenzo did a wonderful job !
Terrific tour guide, Emma! She was very knowledgeable and friendly. The group size of 15 was just right.
Not enough time in Sistine new chapel. Small group was right size. Guide very knowledgeable. Odd to find no pictures allowed in chapel, but allowed in basilica.
Just the best! G- could not have been better. Meets all expectations. Would highly recommend. Margie says hello
Toured with my husband and 2 kids, ages 12 and 13. It was nice that we started in the afternoon. Makes it less tiring. Seeing everything with stories from the guide was very satisfying. Thank you.
Wonderful tour, Maria Gracia was the best!
Just loved it!
We greatly enjoyed our tour of the Vatican. Our tour guide Tiberius was incredibly passionate and well knowledgeable. As well as humorous. Overall we found the tour highly interesting and would highly recommend it.
Emma was a fantastic tour guide. By booking through you we were able to get in at an earlier time (9:45 am), as the official Vatican website showed times only for late afternoon. We are very happy with our choice to use Walks of Italy. Thank you!
Francesca was excellent!!! She was so passionate and was eager to answer all of our questions. I could have spent an entire day with her. Tonite we will do the Colliseum tour, can't wait!!!!
Vanessa was a wonderful guide!
Vanessa was very knowledgable and was able to answer all of our questions. She also went above and beyond by helping my 12 year old daughter who was feeling dehydrated by giving her electrolyte powder to add to her water. Thoroughly enjoyed this tour!
GiGi was one of the coolest people ever! He had us smiling and enjoying the tour from beginning to end. His wealth of knowledge was most impressive. He made our trip to The Vatican very special!
Really impressed with the tour, Sev was incredibly informative and entertaining.
Well paced tour and knowledgeable guide. And would never have survived the lines or navigated the crowds without being able to bypass lines and be led by our guide!
Our guide was excellent and took time to answer questions.
I hope I'm spelling his name right Dario was wonderful. Two of the most interesting facts was the 'fresco' technique used for painting in between the walls and the 'basin' that was actually a gladiator coffin - full grown man. They sure were short!
We enjoyed our time touring the Vatican. Vincenzo was very knowledgeable and we left feeling like we learned a lot and had a great experience! Will definitely recommend to friends and family! Thanks!
Glad we picked this tour it was just the right amount of time. Deb made the experience a once in a life time.
Spend less time in the Museum and more time in St. Peters Church
We had a wonderful half day tour with Sev, our guide. He was so knowledgeable and passionate about everything that we saw and we appreciated his humor and interaction with our teens and tweens. Would definitely recommend Walks of Italy to anyone going to Rome. Thank you.
Mr. T did a fantastic job describing the history of the Vatican and the fabulous art work within. Again enjoyed his humor and the pace of the tour. Highly recommend.
Great tour and a great tour guide. Thank you!
Guide was excellent! Only problem her microphone failed 3/4way through and we could not hear, that was disappointing.
Marie Theresa was an excellent guide. Really informative guide of the vatican. Woukd recommend to everyone coming to Rome
This was a fantastic tour. There was so much to see that it would've taken us several days to get through all the museums, so it was so nice to have our guide, Mr. T, there to helps point out the highlights. Mr. T was awesome as well, we learned so much. Great tour!
Great time!!
Mr T was a great leader and very knowledgeable as well as entertaining!
It was one of the best tours we have ever had and my thanks to you for making it a fantastic trip. We will always recommend Walks of Italy to all of our friends and family.
Thank You very much, You are great :)
Our guide Toni was great .
Emma was fantastic! She provided additional details about the art that was very interesting, as I had my daughter, who is studying art history, with me. She maneuvered the crowds like a pro and kept the pace up.
Our guide was knowledgeable and friendly. She was super accommodating- one couple wanted to leave early so she helped them exit then came back to us for more time. She was so good that we just booked a tour in Florence through Walks of Italy.
I could unfortunately give only 5 stars. Our guide, Tiberius, deserves a much higher rating! His tour was the best one I've ever been on. It was history lessons, stories, and performance all rolled into one. Outstanding!
Excellent tour
Susanna our guide was wonderful.Despite the crowds she expertly guided us around giving us a n expert commentary.A five star performance.
fantastic tour
Mariana was a very charming gal! Enjoyed her knowledge very much.
Great tour. Perfect amount of time and information.
Our tour guide Darrio was incredibly knowledgeable and funny. He made the tour fantastic and not boring. Based on our experience, we have already recommended your company to others Absolutely unforgettable.
Excellent tour with a very knowledgeable guide. Silvia made the tour interesting with all of the historical facts. It was also nice to skip the lines! Would definitely recommend Walks of Italy, and in fact, we have told many people how much we liked the tour.
very personable and Excellent knowledge of the Vatican
well organized, easy to hear with ear pieces, tour guide took their time and made sure you had time to see everything, from time to time the ear pieces did pick up other groups but there were a lot of people in the building. Very pleased with tour and our tour guide
Very informative, amusing, evenly paced, skillful handling of group with crowds, invited & answered questions, a very charming &a delightful young women who was easy to relate to! And excellent English!
Claudia was faboulos!! She was knowledgeable, happy to answer all questions, entertaining and just wonderful! I would recommend walks of Italy tours to all. The tours are kept under 15 ppl, so it isn't a large crowd and remains intimate. We were very happy!
Our guide, Vincent, was incredible. He provided amazing background to everything we saw.
Vincent was FANTASTIC! Kept the group engaged throughout the entire tour and I left very pleased and having learned a lot.
Great tour but very crowded
Mary Grace did a fantastic job and made the experience so worth it. Even with the crazy crowds, she was able to make it a wonderful and unforgettable tour!
Jon was excellent and so helpful! Wish we would have had him in our second tour.
Our guide was excellent!
Marisa was amazing with a lot of knowledge! I would use your company again just because of her
Susanna was an excellent tour guide: very knowledgeable and friendly. Made us feel comfortable even as we worked through large crowds inside the Vatican museum. We were very happy with the tour.
Maria was awesome and very informative. I would definitely use your service again.
Francesca was an amazing tour guide! She is very knowledgeable, shares the information well, and did a great job of navigating the incredibly crowded Vatican.
Vincent was wonderful! He was so enthusiastic and got everyone into the stories of artists. Prior, I had been on disappointing tours that sound like they are reading off a script. Vincent put so much heart and soul into the tour, I will not be forgetting this anytime soon.
Susanna was fun to tour with and kept or attention.
Camilla was amazing.
We had been to the Vatican before with another tour company but being with Gus, our guide from Walks of Italy, showed us how much we didn't know and what we missed on our 1st trip. Wonderful tour and company. We will use your services next time. C. Thornton
Lovely experience. I came to Rome just to see the Sistine Chapel and the tour did not disappoint. Suzana was fabulous.
Gigi is the best! He made the tour fun and enjoyable

Lovely tour...many thanks
Jon was very knowledgeable and took plenty of time to explain things without rushing.
Just excellent , no problem at all very efficient guide .
Highly professional guide. Friendly, knowledgeable and answered questions when raised.
This tour is the best dollar value in Italy. The scenery is beautiful beyond description and the hiking, if the entire trail is used, is challenging. The guides are courteous, considerate, knowledgeable and skilled.
What a wonderful tour. From start to finish! Our tour guide was so informative as well as personable. So glad we booked this company.
Wonderful tour and wonderful guide. Would highly recommend.

MG was a great guide, very informative and engaging. She did a great job keeping us together is the chaos of the museums.
Vincenzo was simply incredible. Knowledgeable about anything and everything we asked for. I would take him as a tour guide any day
This tour was absolutely worth every penny I spent on it. We skipped a huge line and getting in was made easy. The tour guide (Maria) could not have been better and in fact was the most important factor in making the tour a success.
Fantastic guide...a lovely lady, knew everything there was to know and more. She was passionate about everything!! Couldn't recommend enough!!!
Excellent tour guide who made it interesting for all my family including my 12 year old son, massive thank you

This tour and tour guide, Dario, were wonderful - his tour was a great way to visit and navigate the Vactican and St Peter's. He host was informative, organized and humorous. I was impressed with his depth of knowledge and candid commentary.
Hasslefree experience and an informative guide - worth every penny to avoid, as best you can, the crowds
The tour was a little on the long side but the guide was AMAZING....top-notch for sure. I'd certainly recommend this tour to others without hesitation.
We really enjoyed the tour and the tour guide. Very crowded though and decided to miss the Basillica
les explications de la guide étaient des plus complètes tres attentive a ne perdre personne du groupe elle a mémorisé les prénoms de chacun en tres peu de temps merci a elle pour son efficacité
Fantastic guide that is extremely knowledgeable, very informative, and very energetic.
Ivana was very well knowledgeable and provided a wonderful tour with a very historic and informative history. We would recommend your tour and her any time.
I can't remember the tour guides. Ame was it Marabelle anyway she made the tour fun even though that's has to be tough job to navigate the tour group through those insane crowds but she was upbeat kind , happy and informative she really made it fun..would highly recommend ur tours
Maria is pleasant, informed and a born leader! We thoroughly enjoyed her patience and concern for us throughout the tour. She I passed many obstacles and led us to key artifacts.
This tour was very informative. Our guide Francesco (spelling) was amazing and super knowledgable. He really took the time to make sure he answered all questions and understood the history of the Vatican.
I wasn't sure about spending that much on a tour without recommendations from friends but I was very happy I did it. I got so much more out of the guided tour than I would have on my own. I will definitely recommend you and review you online! Thanks so much!
Guide was lovely and so sweet! Extremely knowledgeable
Our guide was excellent. I enjoyed this tour.
We wouldn't do it any other way. We highly recommend!
The guide's knowledge and passion makes the tour so enjoyable.
Excellent tour again. We were happy to have Vincenzo once more, who recognised us from a few days previously. His enthusiasm for the subject matter was clear and he made the entire experience (even the queuing!) very enjoyable.
Our guide was not only very knowledgable and passionate about the information but he made the tour very interesting
Our tour guide Maria was fantastic!! She's an asset to your company!!
Camila was excellent. She was easy to understand and had so much information. We loved her.
Excellent tour and excellent guide. Next time in Rome we plan on signing up for another tour.
Great tour guide, great tour. Worth every penny!
Excellent tour. Our guide was friendly and quite knowledgable. Also, very patient with the group.
Excellent tour & guide, with the right balance of information and areas of interest - the provision of an labelled print relating to the Cistine Chapel paintings was a helpful bonus. (Only feedback tip would have been to give some info re potential toilet stops given the 3 hour + length of tour).
Maria was amazing!! Fun exciting and knew her history, she is a definite person to be quided through a city of loads of history!! Extremely please!!
Maria was delightful - her enthusiasm and knowledge made this tour one of our favorite events in our Europe travel!
Anna was fantastic ! Very knowledgeable and excellent people skills.
Loved everything about worming with walks of Italy!!! The over the phone customer service was friendly and extremely helpful. Tour guide was the BEST! And the tour itself was breathtaking!
Great tour with fantastic guide. No way could I have tackled that myself!
Sev was so informative and engaging. He was a pleasure as our tour guide. Would definitely book a tour with him again!
Thoroughly impressed with Elena's knowledge and care she took of the group. A great way to see everything in a short time - I'll definitely be back to explore more. Thank you
Cecilia was wonderful very knowledgeable. Out Vatican guide Enza was almost amazing. And our colosseum guide Francesco was incredible! Thank you thank you!!
Maria was informative & enthusiastic about the tour & we thoroughly enjoyed our experience.
Alessia was very good and always made sure our group was together. She was extremely knowledgeable and always answered any questions. I would certainly recommend this tour and to use your company for future tours. Thank You
Maria was wonderful. She was so extremely knowledgeable, very funny, and went out of her way to give us the best experience possible. One of the high points of my trip. Mille gracie, Maria!
Camilla was our guide and she was just great. Very satisfied.
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.
