EXTENDED TOUR DESCRIPTION

ENTER THE SISTINE CHAPEL BEFORE THE GENERAL PUBLIC

There are moments that stay with you forever. Visiting the Sistine Chapel and seeing the masterpieces of Michelangelo should be one of those. For too many visitors, this special experience is ruined by overcrowding, but what if there was a way to guarantee your perfect moment?

Our Pristine Sistine™ Chapel Tour enters the Vatican Museums one hour before they open to the general public. Over the last five years we've practiced this tour on over 50,000 guests, crafting the best possible experience of the Vatican Museums (even during the crowded summer months!) Along with your guide, you'll power through empty galleries to be the first inside the Sistine Chapel – so you can enjoy these masterpieces in peace – then embark on a full tour of the Vatican Museums and St. Peter’s Basilica.

Our guides have been carefully chosen as the perfect travel companions, enriching your visit with witty anecdotes and entertaining details to bring world-famous works to life. Entering before the public you’ll have time to get up close to the art, admiring it from every angle, without having to use your elbows. But that’s only the start of our journey.

ENGAGE WITH THE BEST OF THE VATICAN MUSEUMS COLLECTION

We say engage because that’s what you’ll do. Your guide will lead you on a carefully- crafted route through the best of the collection, teaching you not just about the art and history of the collection (which spans from Ancient Greece to a very modern “Squashed Tomato”) but the history of the Papal Palaces too and the many characters that have lived, worked, ruled and painted here.

Traveling in small groups of only 12 people or fewer (with personal headsets in case it’s a little loud) you’ll always be able to hear your guide and engage with their stories, asking all the questions you can think of. We won’t finish at the Vatican Museums though. Our next stop is the world’s largest ancient basilica.

SKIP THE LINES INTO ST. PETER’S BASILICA

As an official Vatican tour operator, we’ll go directly from the Vatican Museums to St. Peter’s Basilica, bypassing long general access lines and saving a 30-minute walk. Everything about this incredible building is awe-inspiring. From Bernini’s monumental carved Baldachin altarpiece to Michelangelo’s emotional ‘Pietà’ and the huge dome whose completion (literally) threatened to tear the basilica in half.

As you explore every nook and cranny of this huge building, you’ll get an insight into the heart of the Catholic Church and Renaissance Italy with our passionate guides at the helm. Our Pristine Sistine™ Chapel Tour guarantees that perfect Sistine moment – plus an engaging and entertaining three hours to follow.

You’ll probably only visit the Vatican City once. Make it perfect with our original, pristine tour.

NOTE: Due to increased demand, we're offering an additional time slot on our Pristine Sistine tour, entering the Museums at 8.30AM, 30 minutes before general opening rather than one hour, for those who need a little more time in bed. Let's call it our Still-Quite-Pristine Sistine Tour.

At €86 per adult, it is €3 cheaper than our earlier departure. To book select the 8.30AM start time during booking.

Enjoyed the tour very much. I had lived in italy for seven years as a student many years ago . On a trip with friends who had never been to italy before . I have to say ai learned very much . This is also true of the underground tour of the colosseum and Roman Forum the day before
I truly recommend booking this tour if you would like to have some space when you are looking at the Sistine. Wonderful guide with great knowledge.
Our guide (I apologize for not remembering her name) was incredible! She was enthusiastic, knowledgeable and has a wonderful way of conveying information and her love of the history. We could not have asked for a better experience!
Thank you, the tour was exactly what we expected from previous reviews, informative and entertaining.
I was with my 15 year old daughter and can only say this: It will be memories such as Monday's that will be with me as I take my last breath in this life. Truly magnificent from beginning to end and experienced with the most special person in the world to me. Grazie Julietta!
Our guide was very informative and always made sure the group was together when it got really crowded!
We could not have been more impressed with this tour - money well spent! Everything was so well coordinated and arranged and our guide, Jeb, was phenomenal! All of the other tours we have taken with other companies this week have paled in comparison. Would highly recommend!
We were very pleased with the level of knowledge of our guide making it educational and entertaining. I would highly recommend this tour.
My wife and I can't remember the name of our tour guide, but she was awesome! Very knowledgeable with the history of the Vatican and Michelangelo. Getting in early was totally worth it.
I couldn't have asked for a better tour guide. Our guide new all of her history and provided us with great information. Her style of communications, the speed of walking around, and the structure in which she organised the tour were all excellent. Thank you. Highly recommended.
Like all the Walks, the guide made this one especially good. Getting the early admission to see the Sistine Chapel made it a bucket list experience.
He was very smart guy! He was enthusiastic and very professional. Very informed and organized which is what you want from a tour guide. Would definitely recommend!
The only issue was dealing with the crowds on the 2nd half of the tour. We were very happy to be on an early tour. Our guide Silvia was excellent!
Sabrina has an excellent guiding style. She navigated the group thru the art, history, and Vatican museum hallways with outstanding knowledge and grace. Overall it was a Fantastic tour!!

The tour was great and Felix the tour guide was excellent. Very informative and good size group. Tour guide was especially knowledgeable and funny as well!!!
Our Guide was fantastic. She is a native of Rome, spent time in London. I believe her name was Susan. It was the very best tour we had in Rome. She navigated the group with poise through the crowds. Her insight into the art was impressive.
Super knowledgeable and very delightful in her speaking. I would do this again and tell others to do it
Absolutely first rate. Tanguy imparted a fantastic amount of information at just the right level to keep the whole group engaged. Great to have the early visit to the Sistine chapel and have time to really appreciate its splendour. Very well organised and delivered tour. Great job guys. Thank you.
Tiberio was an excellent guide. So knowledgeable, approachable and friendly. Really made the tour interesting.
Guido was just great. We really enjoyed our tour and found it most interesting. Thanks!
Our guide was fabulous...very knowledgeable, organized and enthusiastic!
Our guide, Jeb, was fantastic!
Our guide Mauricio was the best. So often I've been bored by other guides who spend way too long on a painting or sculpture that wasn't worth the time. Mauricio was really good at spending just the right amount of time and then going onto the next exhibit worthy of interest.
Eleonora was a wonderful and passionate Roman guide. We enjoyed learning history, art, philosophy and religion from her.
Our guide was excellent. She was very good at explaining the art and history of every room. What a day!!!

Susanna was very knowledgeable in the history of our tour surroundings, and skillfull in keeping the group together and moving on time.
Anna was excellent, very knowledgeable, customer-focused, low-key. Outstanding tour.
Julietta was an amazing guide - knowledgable, entertaining and extremely organised. We would highly recommend her.
Francesca was wonderful and very knowledgeable about art, the Vatican and knowing her way around not only the Sistine Chapel but the museums and back door to the Basilica. The group size was perfect. Would recommend and use "Walks"again.
Luigi was quite knowledgeable and provided an excellent tour. We loved being able to study the Sistine Chapel for 20 minutes with relatively few others.
Our guide was amazing. It is obvious Laura has vast knowledge and enjoys what she does!
See above
Great tour guide. Pleasant and very knowledgeable.
Excellent Tour. Our guide was patient and informative. I am pleased with the service provided by Walks of Italy Tours.
Nice tour, knowledgeable guide.
Loved this tour. This guide was also excellent. Full of great info and wanted to share it all with us. Amazing!
Great experience!
Disappointed we could not stay in the museum after the tour ended. We could not go back to the gift shop or view the museum. Please consider adding an extra charge for those of us who wish to spend more time there. We came all the way from SF, CA.
our guide was excellent She was very informative and friendly
Our guide was personable and knowledgeable. I appreciate how difficult it is to lead a tour of the Vatican during tourist season. Manuvering among all those people and conveying all the information required is quite a feat. She gets an A+.
Great tour. Knowledgeable guide. We encountered a few audio system issues (static) before we finally found a channel that worked. It made a huge difference to get an early start. I highly recommended to anyone.
Anna was wonderful with our group! Great personality. Great stories!
stead of charging ahead
Excellent guide, well informed, passionate, kind and patient. Bravo Bruno.

our guide was great!
Terrific tour and fantastic to get in early to enjoy it!
Excellent
Tour was fantastic and our tour guide was amazing.
Going early and with a tour is a must!!! Our guide, Dario, was amazing! So knowledgeable and passionate. I would not see the Sistine Chapel and the Vatican any other way.
Tiberius was fantastic. One of the highlights of our trip so far.
Our guide was fantastic, one of the best guides we have ever encountered. She was not only professional and knowledgeable but had a great sense of humor. She showed concern about everyone in the group, considering individual needs.
Gigi our tour guide was wonderful. Spoke great English, humorous and polite. All in all great value for money!
Lots of information packed into a 3.5 hour tour. Tiberius was excellent, knowledgeable and very passionate and entertaining.
Excellent tour and an outstanding guide. I forgot his name, but he was an archeologist from Sicily and he provided great insight and explained things in a very engaging manor.
An authentic, enthusiastic, intelligent and highly effective guide who made the morning fly by with pace and verve. We were lucky to have him!
I will recommend your service to anyone I meet, your staff were professional and courteous to everyone in the group 👍
It was great to see the chapel early before everyone else. I loved our guide.
We really enjoyed the Pristine Sistine Tour, and our guide Valentina was the best! She was so knowledgeable about the Vatican and spent just the right amount of time at each sight. We would not have changed a thing -- we were completely satisfied and would highly recommend this tour.

My tour was great! I would not have gotten as much out of the Vatican without it. Thank you!

Guide was superb at getting us to the right spot to see the hidden jewels of the tour. He really knew his stuff. If all of your guides are this good I will always book your service
The guide was fantastic! She was very knowledgeable of the history and did an excellent job at getting us a good viewing spot at each site. She also was very great at accommodating the different needs of our group (for those who had to take the elevator instead of the stairs).
We really appreciated our tour guide. She was very friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. We would not hesitate to recommend her.
Our guide Jeb was great. Very knowledgeable and obviously knew the tricks of the trade to be able to navigate around the Vatican with ease.
FANTASTIC!!!

The guy is funny witty and very knowledgeable-top marks
Marie Teresa was great. She was so concerned with all the walking and stairs we had to climb in the Sistine Chapel. She was a real sweetheart. She is an asset to your company. I definitely will recommend your company to our friends.
Amazing, amazing, amazing! Visiting during Holy Week and skipping all of the crowds was worth every penny. Tour guide Toni was absolutely fantastic.
Loved it and the guide added such insightful comments about the artwork.
Jeb was awesome!!!

10/10 Giulietta was the best tour guide I've ever had. I would like to return with guests (as I currently reside in Italy) and would love to be able to state a preference for her for our guide when making the reservation in the future.
Elena was great, very knowleagable and the tour fun with facts and making everybody take part by asking questions
Tiberio was great! He doubled humour with extensive knowledge and made the trip a truly memorable experience.

I would recommend getting new radios. On two of these tours I had radio issues, which were resolved.
The only way to see the Vatican....early birds catch the view (no worms seen)! Thanks will recommend to anyone visiting Rome
Your trips leave from easy to find locations. Small groups and guides with expertise are very important and made this tour.
Had Marianna again, and the experience was just as memorable as the previous one
Excellent tour. Guide extremely intelligent and knowledgeable on their topics. Very friendly and helpful.
We really enjoyed the tour. Our guide Gi Gi was excellent. He was very knowledgeable and well versed regarding all Vatican areas. Also loved Gi Gi's personality. Great tour - thank you.
The tour was wonderful. Our guide Camilla was fantastic. She is very knowledgeable and obviously very interested in the Sistine Chapel and Vatican details. The six of us felt very lucky to have an early tour and avoid the larger crowds later in the day. Thanks!
Marta was a great leader her knowledge on all aspects of this tour was outstanding. Again she was friendly and made the tour a pleasure to be on, I would recommend this tour.
Emma was great. The early portion was best--no hords to contend with. Very crowded later in the morning.
We were so happy we booked this tour. Our tour guide navigated the crowds efficiently and was very knowledgeable. We had 11 in our group and it was a good number. Skipping line and smaller group was ideal.

Our guide Gigi was awesome! So knowledgeable and very enjoyable to listen to. Overall, we enjoyed the tour very much.

Our tour guide was knowledgeable, interesting and funny as well. The visit was made much more enjoyable because of her.
We are so glad we booked with WOI and had Francesca as our guide. We had Francesca's lovely voice in our ears as she guided through the Vatican Museum expertly and informatively. We don't know how anyone can get through the crowds at the Vatican without an expert tour guide such as Francesca!
Sven was an amazing tour guide. His knowledge was far above expectations and made the tour. We left with a deep and profound respect for the Vatican and St. Marks's basilica. I would recommend this to everyone.

The tour really couldn't have gone any better. Our guide was amazing and we saw everything we could have asked for!
Jeb was well rehearsed and able to manoeuvre us quickly and safely through the chapel. Jen was friendly and professional at the same time.
Doriana was very knowledgeable, experienced and kept a great pace for the tour !!! always kept an eye out to ensure everyone was gathered before heading off to the next room/destination.
What a great experience! Anna expertly dodged crowds and gave us great information throughout. We appreciated the handout on the Sistine Chapel before we went in.
The walk in the Sistine Chapel, without the crowds, and the information we got trought the walk were very Nice!
The guide was not only beyond knowledgeable but also gorgeous!
This tour provided an amazing experience for me and my family. Our guide excellent. Not only was she knowledgeable about the content of the tour, she was savvy about the best way to experience the tour.
Excellent visit with very interesting information provided by a passionate tour guide. Highly recommended! One comment: we would have liked to be told that we could climb up St Peter's dome before ending the tour. We didn't know and simply left at the end.
Mauriciano was a wealth of information, efficient with his time, professional and witty. We loved this tour.

Gigi our guide was funny and good.
I am a travel agent and this was an amazing experience. The guide was spectacular and extremely knowledgeable. It was a lot to do in a short period but I felt completely satisfied that I had seen what I needed to see during my 1 day stay in Rome. I will definitely recommend this to my clients.
Wonderful tour. Saw so much, and guide was very knowledgeable. It would be nice at the end to be left in St. Peter's to spend a little more time. Francesca did help us get to climb the dome at the end.
Great tour. Glad that we did this and avoided the lines!
Our guide was great. The headset was not so great, but she changed it to a different one that worked fine.
Was a mind blowing tour. Thank you.
Amazing experience, would most highly recommend! Gigi was our guide, and he could not have done a better job. His energy was contagious and his knowledge superb. Truly one of the most memorable experiences we have had to date, many thanks to Gigi and Walks of Italy.

My guide was Tony and she did a great job in keeping the tour moving, and keeping it interesting. Very satisfied with my experience and would recommend to others.
Jowita was informative, personable and funny. She kept the group together and moving since we had a lot to cover. I have bad knees but she also was accommodating my slower pace.
Francesca was wonderful! We went on several tours in Rome and Florence and she was, by far, the best! Things we liked: She kept talking even while we were walking or moving from place to place. She was very knowledgeable, humorous, and engaging. Great tour!

Great tour! Was so good to get into the Chapel before the crowds got there and Mama G was very knowledgable and enthusiastic.
Very good tour, guide was knowledgeable and informative. However we still felt the price was excessive.
The tour was so worthwhile although it was expensive. The guide was outstanding and his english excellent.
I loved this tour and thought Vincenzo was an excellent guide with very good English and a huge amount of knowledge and information that he was able to give us. I think it's great you do the early start tour which gives an opportunity to get in and enjoy it before the crowds.
Everything was dealt with professionally starting from registration and ending with picking back the audio guides! Most of all loved the warmth and knowledgeable Francesca who took her time to deliver all her knowledge to us. Would definitely recommend her to others as well as take her tour again!

You run a great company. Good value for the dollar
Our tour guide was great! I had great time in Vatican city because of her vivid explanation. I would highly recommend this tour to my friends:)
Our guide was very informative. I don't remember his name at the moment , sorry. If I was back in Rome and he was the guide on another tour I would not be disappointed. It was worth getting up early on vacation to be at the Sistine chapel without the crowd. Spectacular!
Great tour, knowledgeable interesting guide.
I was surprised that I never received an email / confirmation a few days before the tour. It's just nice to get the confirmation to know that everything is a go & reminder of the details, time & place.
Both this tour and the Coliseum tour we took the next day were excellent, the small tour group size is a great plus.
The guide did a great job of keeping us moving, discribing the many master pieces and answering questions among the huge crowd.
Amazing tour and guide.
Big Mamma Gee was excellent!!!
I was totally pleased with this tour. Loved getting into the Sistine Chapel first thing in the morning - awesome experience! Guide was terrific as well. Will recommend this to anyone traveling to Rome!

Vincenzo was excellent! We truly enjoyed our tour and will book another the next time we are in Italy!
Doriana was AMAZING! The Vatican is a terrific experience by itself, but Doriana made this the most memorable experience of our trip. Cannot say enough about her! She was incredibly knowledgeable, approached the tour that minimized the crowds, and had a great wit/sense of humor about her.
Our guide was very good. We were very happy that we booked the tour, don't think it would have been the same without it.

Jeb was an excellent guide. This tour gave us so much more information than if we did it ourselves.
Fascinating
Invaluable to see the sistine chapel with fewer crowds and be navigated to the top areas.
Francesca was our guide and she was perfect! Knowledgeable, efficient use of time - we got in and out before the crowds were overwhelming. Would use this service again if given the opportunity!
With the timeframe we had, the tour was very good. The guide was wonderful, both in expertise and in enthusiasm for the information & history he shared.
Maria Grazia was extraordinary! She was knowledgeable and her love of the art and architecture of the Vatican was infectious.

Everithing was perfect
More opportunity to ask questions before moving to the next item/room. Lungi was very passionate and knowledgable about everything g we saw. Loved the tour. I have already promoted it on Facebook in case any of my friends in California ever come here.
Great tour! Couldn't imagine not having a tour at the Vatican, we learned so much.
Well worth the money, and the early start!
Elisa gave a great tour. She was very knowledgeable and gave great insight on the tour. I was very satisfied with the tour.
Excellent guide. Great tour.

Uta our guide was fantastic. She was very pleasant and informative. I wouldn't hesitated
Thank you Luigi lots of information provided. His English was also very good.
Excellent tour. Our guide was fantastic.
We totally enjoyed our tour with Jeb. Having a half hour in the Sistine Chapel with just a "small crowd" of people was great.
Juliette is a guide extraordinaire. We were delighted to find her on the 2nd tour, after being awed by her on the first You should clone her.
Fantastic tour. Very pleased.
Our guide, Vicenzo, was excellent. I already have recommended Walks of Italy to a friend.
I really enjoyed the walk. The guide was excellent! She did tell us she was an art historian, and you could feel her passion for all the art that we were viewing. I would not change anything.
Our guide was fantastic ,interesting ,knowledgable and amusing ,first class
Jeb was an excellent guide - so knowledgeable and adept at bringing the facts and figures to life. The pace was good and we saw a huge amount in a short time.
Uta was an amazing guide and truly tailored her discussion to suit us perfectly. Lovely tour that was extremely educational, interesting and fun.
The tour under Jeb's guidance was so valuable. Having time for peaceful contemplation at the Sistine before the crowds arrived was appreciated as was the depth of knowledge of our guide. Highly recommended.
The tour was phenomenal - informative, exclusive, and organized. The only feedback I would give is that I would've liked to have returned to the Vatican museum upon completion of the tour. It was not clear that we would not be able to return.
The tour guide was engaging, informative and funny. We had many chuckles while on this tour. It was wonderful to be let in to the Rafael rooms and the Sisteen Chapel before officially openning for other tour groups. Superbly done!
Fantastic tour and a fantastic guide
Great guide. Walk was the highlight of our visit to Rome. Thx!!
Very happy with the tour, very entertaining and interesting.

Early entry to Sistine Chapel is the only way to do this tour - will be recommending this to our friends

This was our first of four tours with Walks of Italy. It was awesome, our guide was great, and the Vatican was amazing. Couldn't be much more satisfied.
Camilla was wonderful.
An excellent tour that enabled us to make the very most of our time in Rome
Every one of our tours was well done. Liked each of the guides we had. Good information and fun stories.
Our children took this tour, they were amazed and impressed with the venue and the tour guide. They said that they could listen to her forever. The time schedule was perfect and got them in the museum before the crowds. You run a first class tour.
I loved the Vatican tour. It was amazing to be in the Sistine Chapel before the crowds came in.
We enjoyed the tour, it was helpfull to have it for the vatican. The guide was amazing, knowledgeable and helpful. Awaiting for my next tour with you.
Just having the 30 mins quiet time in the Sistine Chapel afforded us the ability to begin developing the sense of awe at the genius of Michelangelo. Claudia was a superb guide; passionate, knowledgeable, and witty.
Cecilia was fantastic!!! Her knowledge and manner was all class!
Beautiful tour-it's worth the extra money to have the Sistine Chapel to yourself.
Well worth the early hour and the extra money. Will recommend this to anyone I know who is visiting Rome

Amazing to see it not crowded Was really well looked after and left knowing what to do next
Juliette was charming, friendly, and meticulous in her knowledge. She balanced entertaining the children in the group with keeping the adults informed. She was absolutely perfect.
Again, nothing but praise for this tour. The fact that our little party of ten enjoyed 30 minutes or so of solitude in the iconic Sistine Chapel was priceless. Our guide expertly responded to all our questions and again, we rate this as a highlight of our stay in Rome.
We loved the tour and our guide!
The tour was excellent. The guide was excellent. I had a great time.
The tour director was absolutley terrific!!

We loved the tour of the Sistine chapel/Vatican and We couldn't have had a better host than Camilla. She never stopped talking and provided us with so much information, with some humor mixed in.
Felix was a fantastic guide, very informative. Loved the "skip the line" entrance and visiting the Sistine Chapel without the crowds. This tour was the highlight of our trip in Rome.
Our daughter & her husband were in Rome earlier this year, they used your company & highly recommended your Company. Our Guide Juliette was excellent.
Fernando was superb. What an honor to have an archeologist for a guide. His enthusiasm and passion carried over into his tour. I learned so many interesting facts I had not known before.
This tour was amazing! Maristella was a mine of knowledge and information. Excellent experience made all the better by Maristella great approach. We would highly recommend both tours and have only good things to say about our tour guides.
Julietta was charming, well informed and a pleasure to listen to. She is a valuable asset to your business.
Tour went very quickly in the aspect of being moved from sight to sight with little time spent on more important sights. Great tour either way and tour guide was great.
Absolutely beautiful tour and time! I've told all my friends about this tour and highly recommended it.
Beata did an excellent job. She is enthusiastic, informative and extremely well prepared. I visited the Sistine Chapel many years ago. It was an impossible experience. This early entry tour enabled my husband and I to get the very best experience possible. Thank you.
was extremely pleased with the tour- our guide was fun, witty and informative at the same time. We give her a five star rate!!!!

Excellent and passionate guide.
I was very satisfied with the tour and our tour guide. Will recommend Walks of Italy to others
Phenomenal service by our guide! Highly recommend!
Tour guide was very well informed and shared her knowledge easily with the group. The only other thing I can say is that there were some older people in the group who struggled to keep up, especially on the stairs. Overall, an excellent tour!
Great and informative tour. Especially enjoyed being able to get in prior to the crowds!
Very informative and Ivanna was a pleasure to be with.
Fredinando was an excellent guide: very knowledgeable and had very good English-speaking skills.

Tour guide was fantastic, really brought the tour to life.
Great tour. Guido was wonderful. Being able to be in the Sistine Chapel early when it was virtually empty was oriceless
We were given well and good information about the Vatican and its treasures by Cecilia. She also took care of another visitor in our group who met a small accident in the escalator of the Vatican museum. I have high praises for all the walks of italy tours we took.
Excellent guide
Our guide was awesome and even made sure we had a little extra time for a couple great suprised that we didn't even expect on the tour !! He was great thank you for helping our Rome experience be even more great!
Your guide was fabulous! We will recommend your company to our friends. Went beyond our expectations.
Francessca did a wonderful job. She was very aware of our surroundings and always watching out for our group. We definitely got our money's worth.
Great tour all the way around. We recommended the tour to several people while we were still in Italy and will continue to do so.
Wonderful tour!
jeb was excellent. he really knew his art history and could tell us in great detail what we were looking at.
Amazing guides and the best way to cover the attractions when ur short on time
Our guide was delightful. She was knowledgeable and considerate of the group in pointing out many important art items. She also helped us access St. Peter's Basilica saving much time.
Fabrizio has incredible energy and passion. Loved the tour and really felt we saw everything with interesting stories.
Very experienced guide.
Very informative tour. The guide was very friendly and took care of the group.
Excellent Vatican tour very knowledgeable.
Another great tour. The only (and its small) issue would be the length of the tour. It seems like a tour covering so much could benefit by being a little longer. But the guide did a great job of explaining the highlights - and early entry to the Sistine Chapel is invaluable.
Jeb was amazing and so informative. We got to see so much on this tour. I would highly recommend it. We had an audio tour of St. Peter's later in the day, and having been on the earlier tour really helped with our understanding of the Basilica.
Guide was fab - so informative & interesting to listen to - so glad we chose the VIP tour to see the Vatican - its a must
Beata was a delight. Her knowledge of the Vatican and the artwork is impressive.
We have been to Sistine chapel four time since the 70's and we learn more from Lara than all others combined.....Lara loves what she is doing and it shows we give her 5 stars
Jeb was fabulous. Really did a great job of explaining the art and the context.
Very satisfied with our tour guide's knowledge, willingness to answer questions and friendliness. We will use walks of Italy again.
Our guide was excellent and we had a lovely tour.
Very enjoyable. Well organized tour, with waits kept to a minimum. Anna, our guide, had a good command of English, was knowledgeable and very pleasant ... and helpful when I felt ill. Highly recommended.
Truly majestic chapel and a very knowledgeable guide. Great value.
Francesca was a good guide, very knowledgeable but sometimes difficult to understand.
Our guide (unfortunately her name escapes me) was incredible. Her delivery was enchanting and the level and depth of her subject knowledge outstanding. She is a credit to your company and I have already recommended Walks of Italy to other friends.
Wonderful way to see Vatican! We loved our guide Francesca. Not only she is very knowledgeable but she has true love and passion for treasures she was sharing with us. Thank you Francesca!
Jutta was a fantastic guide, knowledgable, funny and she really build up a contact with the group. We really enjoyed the walk with her.
An absolutely amazing day. Thank you.
Awesome experience, the guide was fantastic and even showed us where she painted some restoration work at the vatican
Ivana was an excellent guide and knew how to use the time wisely to get us to the attractions with the best calculation of time. She was very friendly and knowledgable about all of the sites we saw. I would recommend this tour and the guide to everyone.
This tour is a must. The ability to have such a knowlegeable and passionate guide was fantastic. The Sistine Chapel and Vatican Museums requre such respect and we certainly were thrilled to be part of the tour - small group, headset and our guide made this a wonderful experience.
It was worth getting up so early to be able to be in the Sistine Chapel with room to move around. I liked that we returned again at the end of the tour, and in fact, it was less crowded then. The guide was sweet but easily distracted and had us practically running through some of the exhibits.
Mauricio was fantastic. He made the whole Vatican experience unforgettable and I am so glad we were able to get in well before the crowds as I'm short and when the crowds came in I couldn't see a thing! Lovely tour - well worth it.
Really enjoyed the tour. Felt a bit rushed through parts of the museum and our guide always seemed to be in a hurry. Generally he was kind and knowledgeable.
We enjoyed the tour very much. Our guide was incredibly informative. It was wonderful to be in the Sistine Chapel without a ton of other people. I learned so much. Thank you.
Marta not only knew the sights and arts to see, she also knew the timing to avoid the congestion of other tour groups. This greatly enhanced our visit to the Vatican City.
So glad we did this - it was expensive, but worth it and we'd do it again.
Guide was wonderful!
Uta was a friendly, charming, intelligent and knowledgeable guide. We found the instructions on where to meet slightly confusing especially when you don't know the area and it is in the dark. That isn't a criticism just a thought on maybe they can be better written.
Our tour guide was first rate! Knowledgeable, passionate and efficient in showing us the beauty and the stories behind the works of the Vatican. I would recommend this tournament to everyone I meet.
Anna was wonderful! Just wonderful! She was knowledgeable, personable and it was obvious she cared deeply that everyone on the tour had a good experience. She is a real asset to our organization! Kathleen Hursh
Silvia was so great! Her knowledge of the Vatican history and Roman history was outstanding! She truly had such passion for Roman history and telling its story to us! She was more than we expected in a guide!

Great guide! Very organized company. Felt it was money well spent. Cannot imagine seeing the Vatican without a knowledgeable guide. We were delighted with Walks of Italy!
Darrio was fantastic! By far the best guide we had out of the 6 tours we took on the trip. He is very knowledgeable, cares about the tour he gives and extremely funny on top of that. Give that man a raise!
Great tour! It was nice to be at the Sistine Chapel before the crowd got too heavy. Our tour guide was so extremely knowledge. Such a great experience and tour!
An amazing tour! Our guide was excellent! Dario was knowledgeable, focused and humorous. Highly recommended.
Guide was awesome -- It was great to be there so early and avoid some of the crowd. He did a great job showing us the highlights and answering our questions. He kept things moving and made things very interesting. I strongly recommend.
We loved our tour and our guide was excellent!
We had an excellent time with Claudia! She made history come alive! She was extremeley knowlegeable and enjoyable! My 90 year old mom was in a wheelchair and claudia was so kind and accomodating. Excellent Pridtine Sistine tour!
We are so glad we went with a tour like this, as it would be crazy to go on our own... especially for a first time visit. We appreciated the expertise of our guide, and of learning about the Sistine chapel ahead of time in the line, so we could more appreciate what we were looking at. Thank you!
Utah was wonderful! It was time well spent
Despite the very wet start, Felix made this n outstanding and very informative tour. His detailed knowledge, willingness to answer questions and even pace made this a truly informative, insightful and outstanding experience.
Suzanna was a wonderful guide, very knowledgeable and enthusiastic about her tours. She skillfully led the group through a very crowded area and was very easy to ask questions to. We enjoyed our tour very much and will recommend it to others. Mille grazie!
Excellent tour! Great to be able to get ahead of the large crowds in the Sistine Chapel. Our tour guide was outstanding and the whisper headsets worked well in the crowds...Dale
Please tell Dario that I was at the Vatican at 7:30am on a Tuesday to climb up the cupola and there was no line!
Excellent guide who timed our arrival in the Sistine Chapel perfectly to avoid most of the crowds. Very very qualified and interesting guide!

Our tour guide was amazing. She gave us so much information, well beyond a normal tour. Not only was she so knowledgeable, she also had a wonderful personality and her smile made us all smile. Linda Weigel
Our guide was excellent in every way! Very knowledgeable and enthusiastic. She even took special care of my husband who had difficulty with stairs, persuading guards to allow private access via elevators, etc. We loved that she is an artist too! We will always recommend Walks of Italy!
Excellent guide and very good overall experience despite being very crowded. Meeting point easy to find .Good check in.
This tour was amazing! Our guide (Juliet) was unbelievably knowledgable and really made our tour of the Vatican so special! She was smart, funny and kept our interest for the entire 4-hour tour! We will not hesitate to use Walks of Italy again in the future.
Doriana was brilliant. She gave us a huge amount of relevant information along with a great sense of humour. The early morning tour was definitely the right choice considering the later crowds. We' ll be recommending her and your team to travelling friends.
Our guide was great and very knowledgeable about the Vatican. I really enjoyed it and would go on another tour next time I'm in Rome.
Guido was an excellent guide. Explained logistics and timing of how the tour would work (Chapel first, then museum, then St Peters). Great sense of humor and very knowledgeable about everything we saw. Really enjoyed the tour.
Thank you so much. I had a very lovely time at Vatican and Basilica of St. Peter
