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.

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

Our tour guide Sara was outstanding, we research many tour companies before opting for this one and I don’t think it could have been any better. We had three children with us (15, 12 & 10 years) and we all had the best time. The head sets were great, Sara was so knowledgable and entertaining. We simply got so much from this tour that we would otherwise have missed out on doing this with children. Highly recommended, we will book future tours with you again.
