  • Engage with the art and architecture of the Vatican. Our guides are passionate art experts, full of stories and familiar with even the smallest details of these massive museums. With groups of just 12 or fewer, you'll find them easy to engage with.

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 shot at a better moment?

Over the last five years we've practiced Pristine Sistine™ Chapel Tour on thousands of guests, crafting the best possible experience of the Vatican Museums. Along with your guide, you'll enter an hour before the public and pass through galleries before they fill up for the day. Depending on how busy the Museums are that morning, your guide will spend a little time giving you an introduction to rooms along the way, like the Gallery of the Maps, the Gallery of Tapestries or the Raphael Rooms; or go directly to the Sistine Chapel.

They know how to read the crowd and their aim is to get you to the Chapel at the most peaceful time (always before the 9am opening). During the peak months of high season and a few days over Easter, there will be some groups inside the Sistine Chapel when you visit, but you'll always have much more space than other times of day.

Most days, you'll find the Chapel relatively quiet. Spend 15 - 20 minutes peacefully enjoying what is surely one of life's greatest artistic experiences, then embark on a full-guided tour of the Vatican Museums and St. Peter’s Basilica. Entering before the public you’ll have time to move around the Chapel and admire the various frescoes 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. 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. They 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 but the history of the Popes too. You’ll learn about the many characters that have lived, worked and painted here.

Traveling in small groups of only 12 people or fewer (with personal headsets) 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 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 avoiding a long walk and wait to enter the church. Everything about this incredible building is awe-inspiring, from Bernini’s monumental altar canopy to Michelangelo’s moving 'Pietà' and transcendent dome.

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 Sistine Chapel 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 8.00AM start time during booking.

We really enjoyed the tour and our guide.
Luigi was truly wonderful and friendly. He was also very knowledgable. I learned a lot more from him on this tour than I did of the Vatican through my walks of Italy tour back in June 2016. The quietness of the Sistine chapel was truly a different experience, and totally worth it.
Dario was so knowledgeable and had a great sense of humor. So worth the money!
I loved this tour. Having an early start time made it so much more enjoyable than it would have been if we started an hour later. Toni, our guide, was very good. She gave us a good overview while we were waiting in line outside, which was very helpful.
The chance to appreciate the Sistine chapel before the crowds came gave me a memory that I won't forget. The tour guide did a fabulous job. I would recommend this tour to anyone!
Dario is such a wonderful guide who filled our hours with historical facts and great sense of humor. I wish all my tours can be guided by a guide like Dario. Thanks for an amazing experience, Dario!!

Guide was most knowledgeable and told us many amazing facts. Loved the extra time in the Sistine Chapel. Could have used a 15-20 min rest mid tour with a quick drink. Was difficult for my husband and myself to stand for 4 solid hours.
Juliette was amazing with her insight on the tour. We so appreciated her energy and information! Would definitely recommend to anyone traveling to Rome!
The world renowned artist Giulietta was the most fun, interesting and enjoyable tour guide ever! With a mix of humor, history, and charm, she is hands down the best tour guide one could ever ask for. We will recommend this tour to our friends and family. Well worth the price.
The tour was all we had hoped for! Our guide was very informative, funny and easy to follow. The Sistine Chapel and Vatican speak for themselves!! A fabulous tour - would only want to do the 'pristine' tour when visiting the Sistine Chapel.

Great tour, wonderful stories and the guide really added to our experience. She made sure we were in front of the line, and guided us in such a way that we could avoid most crowds and that the statues had the most impact when first viewing them.
Could not have had a better guide. He modified the timing so that we were not mixed in with other groups. The guide was extremely knowledgeable and provided time for some exploring. Glad we did the earliest available.
Luciana was amazing and very funny - judged the groups interest level perfectly - managed logistics spot on - including doing the right thing and saying nothing after she learnt one of our group had ignored one logistical request - thank you very much

We thought Guido was an outstanding guide and an incredible resource.
Loved this early tour of the Vatican and the Sistine Chapel in a small group. Claudia was amazing and explained what we were seeing so well. We would not have come away with as great an understanding if we had not had a guide who was so knowledgeable. Claudia was very personable and fun.
Gullia was awesome!!

Terrific tour! Would not see the Vatican and Sistine Chapel any other way. Francesca our guide was extremely knowledgeable and very personable. Group size was perfetto. It was a great experience!

the guide (Guido) was excellent! A wealth of knowledge! Very unfortunate that we didn't get a tour of the basilica with him but that couldn't be helped
Our guide was fabulous and I couldn't have asked for a better experience!
Gia our guide was excellent and very informative!! Be ready to walk at a very fast pace and battle crowds later in the day, but I believe it is the best way to get a look at everything.

GG was awesome !!!!!. He is smart , funny , personable - a delight to be with . Didn't feel like a tour - it was like being with a great friend. He was the very best tour guide we had in Italy ( and we went on 5 different tours) and better than any guide we had in Paris last year.
Jeb was an excellent tour guide. Giving us plenty of information. The tour was on time, location was easy to find. Worth the money spent on skipping the line.
Camilla was outstanding. Knowledgeable, intelligent and well prepared.
Giovanni was funny and involved, however between each stop he was on his phone ALOT. It was a little interruptive. There was one time he had to call the office and this is NOT what I am talking about. He was texting almost every walking time.
Claudia was AMAAAAZING! We did the early morning tour of the Sistine Chapel followed by the Vatican and St. Peter’s Basillica. It was a pure pleasure to have Claudia’s company for four hours and the morning access to the Sistine Chapel truly was a divine experience!
Felix was great. Seemed to k ow everything about such a large place with so much.
The guide was exccellent.
The guide was very knowledgeable and passionate about his subject, which made our time with him and the tour very enjoyable and informative indeed. 5 Stars is normally the highest praise, but if I could give 10 stars I would

It was a great tour and the guide was very enthusiastic

I am so glad we chose your tour. The Guide was lovely and very informative. The quiet time in the Sistine Chapel was the highlight.

The guide was one of the most impressive and enthusiastic we have had. We felt he was taking the tour for the first time.
Thoroughly enjoyable tour with an excellent guide
This tour felt a bit rushed. I understand there is too much to see and it is not feasible to spend time in details but I wish we had an option to have an extended tour with a lunch stop so we could walk at a more leisurely pace.
Guide was wonderful and did a great job.
Carmella was very knowledgeable and informative
Wonderful experience. The guide was very knowledgeable and excited to share her knowledge. I would definitely recommend and do it again.

Loved the tour. Guide was great. Have recommended to many people.
Claudia was a great guide. It was definitely worth having early entrance to the Sistine Chapel. We were able to sit down and gaze without being crowded. I would highly recommend this tour.
We enjoyed Jeb and his knowledge guiding us through out the Vatican.
Awesome tour thanks
He was extremely knowledgeable, easy to ask questions and the entire group enjoyed it
Our guide who had a PhD in Restoration (?), was fantastic! Would tell us about what we were about to see before we entered a room. So much more interesting that way. Very personable! Thanks so much!
Again, a top notch guide. Also approachable and passionate about the art and history. Even though this was an early morning for me I'd highly recommend this tour to anyone interested in Roman history and/or art.
Our guide, Alessia, was great! She is very knowledgeable, speaks clearly and makes the tour fun, informative and allows us to experience he Vatican in a wonderful way. I would ask for her by name, if I were to go again!
Strong recommend taking this tour. It was worth the cost to experience the Vatican and Sistine Chapel/Raphael rooms without the crowds! Our guide Claudia was great and very informative.
Our guide was great. We enjoyed the tour very much. Would highly recommend it. I think the only thing I would change would be I would have liked to roam around the museum some on our own but that is just a personal preference.
Our guide Juliet was excellent - we really appreciated her approach to the tour in every way (speed, content, honesty, personal and professional).
I felt like our tour guide could have been more descriptive with his knowledge of what we were seeing, I wished that I had received a little bit more background/details when it was all over. But getting to go in early was absolutely worth the tour.
This was wonderful. We learned so much and we appreciated being taken through before it got too awfully crowded.
Luigi's knowledge was impressive!
I was leery of a group tour, but our tour was great and the guide was exceptional. I wish I could remember her name. She was knowledgeable and personable. Our group was 12 people, not a bad group size. The early access tour is not to be missed.
Our guide was excellent!!!
Tourguide was knowledgeable and professional.
Julietta had a great personality and knew so much about the Vatican.
Fantastic tour. Luigi our guide was great, he was very knowledgable and personable. We couldn't have asked for a better, more informative time.
Felix new the subject very well and explained every thing well. He was very pleasant and took the time to answer all our questions. He gave us enough time to admire the exhibits and take photos of the same. All in all he was very good and we are glade we had him as our guide.
We would never have made it through the crowded maze that is the Vatican museum without this tour and we loved our guide, her insight and her information. I will recommend this to everyone.
This was a fantastic tour with a very knowledgeable and engaging guide.
Excellent tour! Very, very informative. Our tour guide was outstanding! He prepared us well prior to entering the Vatican and did a wonderful job explaining the art and art history.
I learned so much and enjoyed the experience
The guide was excellent! Her knowledge and preparation were truly amazing. The next time we come to Rome we will look at doing more tours with your company.
I had the pleasure of having the same tour guide for both tours, Jowita. She was so excellent on this tour that three of us begged her to change her schedule and be with us on the coliseum and forum tour. She is the best guide I have ever had
This was a fantastic tour, the guide was knowledgeable and the subject matter was extraordinary. We did the early tour and there was minimal waiting and not crowded. I loved it!
Very Please with the tour.
loved all of it
The description held true as we gained access to the chapel without difficulty & were able to still enjoy all of the majesty of the Vatican. Sabrina was a walking book of knowledge which truly enhanced the experience
The enthusiasm and extensive knowledge of our guide made the Vatican City your very exciting especially getting up so early to gain entry to the Custien chapel - beautiful
Marta was an excellent guide. We learned a lot from her.
WAY TOO CROWDED, EVEN WITH OUR EARLY ENTRANCE.
we loved this tour and our guide, Luciana! She was an amazing guide who was able to guide us through the tourist inferno. Her vast knowledge, humor and nimble efficiency was impressive and so appreciated.
Your guide made our trip to rome Trev & Tricia from Manchester UK
Mauro our guide is highly knowledgeable and informative. He made our tour of the Vatican a highlight of our trip to Rome. The tour was well organised and the group size and early morning start was perfect.
Emma was a great guide. Glad we went early. Disappointed that St Peters was closed but not your fault.
Claudia was great as was the tour. Only recommendation would be for you to not wait 3 weeks after the tour to request feedback. Any specifics I may have had for you in this write up have vanished from my brain. Great tour. Would definitely recommend.
Our guide (Simone, I believe was his name) was fantastic. Taken tours for decades, he was one of best: knowledgeable about European history, able to simplify this complexity, and doing it in a fun and very funny way.
Franchesca excellent! The Vatican Tour a little stressful due to the crowds but she was able to make it enjoyable. She was knowledgeable and passionate.
For old people, a break or two to rest would have been nice. We were very exhausted when we finished. But tour was great!! Excellent, personal guide. Loved her.
Very infometive we had an amazing guide that took us through We were more then happy. With her services. Highly recommendation for anyone to do the tour with walks of Italy
Jeb was an excellent tour guide with many wonderful insights and information in a concise accessible and pleasing speaking style. Excellent!
A very enjoyable and educational experience. A chance to see the Sistine Chapel without the massive crowds. We actually were able to sit and ponder as was impossible on previous visit with the huge crowds.
Ivana was fantastic. We enjoyed the tour but her knowledge and passion made it so much better. Thanks Ivana!
Excellent tour. We loved the early start that allowed entry into Vatican museums and Sistine Chapel before big crowds. Juliette was a hoot and well informed. Great art history knowledge. Loved the whole experience including going back into St Peter's on our own.
Davide was wonderful.....I would recommend this tour to everyone who want to see St. Peter's and the Sistine chapel.
The guide made it a very interesting event.
Our tour guide was great (sorry, can't remember her name). Can't imagine trying to get into the Sistine Chapel without a private, small group tour.
Booking was easy, the guide was awesome x knowledgeable, arrangements were well made x easy to follow.
Every tour was perfect and we are so glad we did the early entrance's because there would be no way you could possible enjoy this tour without the early entrance. Once again there is so much history that we need to come back and do again. Thank you for making this a great vacation.
The guide did a good job, considering the later crowds and made sure we were able to keep up.
Our guide did a nice job of trying to work around the crowds, clearly very experienced with the workings of the Sistine and the Vatican. Probably the most difficult coordination for the guide of all our tours.
Wow! We felt fortunate to have such an informed guide.
Guide was very informative and friendly 10 out of 10 rating.
Marta was a great guide. We did have a few issues with the headsets, but she promptly worked to remedy that as she could. Loved the tour! Would recommend Walks of Italy tours!!!
Our guide was great, even under the stress of one couple not listening and getting lost. She found them and the tour continued.
Loved our tour guide. She was so knowledgeable and sweet. Getting in an hour before the general public was so worth it! Loved it and would highly recommend it.
If I could give the guide a super duper rating I would - she was excellent!
Great tour by a most knowledgeable tour guide!
We absolutely loved our tour with the excellent guide through the Sistine Chapel and Vatican Museum. I would recommend that everyone take a tour that allows early access to the chapel to enjoy it without the huge crowds.
Alessia's knowledge of art history and the Vatican made this tour a pleasure. She also helped us navigate the daunting crowds so we could make the most of the visit.
I was very impressed both tours I took through walks of Italy! The tour guides were incredible both very knowledgeable and passionate about history, art architecture and archeology! They were excellent and I will definitely through this company in the future.
Outstanding tour! Very thorough! Our guide Camila was fantastic. She was super easy to follow and understand and was extremely knowledgeable having been born and raised in Roma. Excellent tour!
Really great guide and I was so pleased with how organized the tour was. Very well done.
Well executed. Thank you.
Alex was animated and filled with knowledge. Took us where we needed to go before crowds built. Would highly recommend this tour to all my friends.
Claudia did a fantastic job of covering the various aspects of this tour. From the Vatican Museum, to the Sistine Chapel, and finally St. Peter's Basilica. She showed great knowledge and kept the tour moving.
This tour was one of the highlights of our holiday in Rome. The guide, Alicia, was extremely knowledgeable in art history, had excellent English and was very personable. Early access to the Vatican galleries and the Sistine Chapel was just fantastic. Highly recommended.
It was amazing. Our guide was very knowledgeable. I would only suggest you tell people it is a longer tour than listed on the web site.
Claudia was a fantastic guide. We all enjoyed meeting her and she was delightful. Claudia was very good at explaining everything in English. The visit to the Vatican was magnificent and memorable.
ALESSIA was delightful, knowledgable, friendly....spoke very clear English. We enjoyed every minute of the tour because of her. She deserves a raise! Bev and Larry Schnurbusch from St. Louis

Juliette was a fantastic guide and we thoroughly enjoyed our tour
Everything was really easy, which is what you want on holidays
Our guide was very knowledgeable and did a great job at navigating the large crowds at the Vatican. We really enjoyed the early entry into the Sistine Chapel. The Vatican has so much to see and she did a great job at helping us see as much as possible.
The tour was fabulous. Our guide Francesca was extremely knowledgeable and made the tour very interesting. Would recommend the tour company and tour guide. Excellent!
Beata is well versed in the history of the Vatican and was able to quickly get us through the crowds. She is very professional but needs to work on customer relationships. She was not as warm and friendly as the other 4 Walks I have been on. Still a great tour.
Emma was an AMAZING tour guide, her knowledge went above and beyond and so did her patience with the group!
Jen was FANTASTIC! We've had many guides all over the world, and Jeb was one of the best ever!
Sev was great!

Our guide Muaricio (sp?) was awesome! He was very passionate about the art in the Vatican and he gave great suggestions for avoiding crowds in the Vatican museum (namely, going to Rafael's rooms before the Sistine since it would be packed later!). Amazing tour, thanks!
Our guide was absolutely amazing!! She was fun, energetic, funny, and knowledgeable. She was the perfect guide for the tour. It made for our best and most memorable experience of our whole vacation. Thank you, Martina!
Men was our guide and did a wonderful job. I learned that going on a tour is the only way to see the Vatican. You get in early, but also there are a maze of galleries so much would have been missed, as well as the amazing wealth of information he shared with us.
Very well organised. Knowledgable guide.
Our guide was very passionate about the tour and made suggestions of other sites we should see around town, and around Italy. Plus made great food suggestions! Highly trained for a tour guide.
Tour and guide were excellent, but you could get some newer or better working headsets.
Ferdinand was an excellent guide. He provided much information but was interesting and enjoyable to listen to. I liked how he moved us about the Vatican Museum without getting caught in the crowds.
Laura was a wonderful tour guide, knowledge of Vatican art was extensive. Tour was very enjoyable, would recommend to others.
Davide was a very knowledgeable, polite and humorous guide. He truly made the experience the best possible.

Sev was informative and excellent. Will recommed to others.
Loved our guide and getting into the Sistene Chapel before the crowds.
Our tour guide was outstanding - i believe her name was Sabastian. She was very energetic and knowledgeable. She knew right where to take us, the quickest ways to get there, and had a clear passion for what she did and what she was talking about.
David made our visit to the Vatican amazing. Loved the map and explanation of the Sistine chapel that he gave us while waiting to get in. He was very entertaining and I was never bored listening to him speak. Loved the earphones so that we didn't miss anything.
I enjoyed the tour very much. Our guide was very knowledgeable and friendly. He was prompt and kept us on task without rushing us. Thank you for your service.
The guide and tour were wonderful. The only unpleasant thing (how many people there were at the Vatican!!!) was of course beyond her control. I would definitely recommend this tour.
David was an excellent guide. He has so much passion for Rome and it shows. He was the best guide we had i Italy. He deserves a raise and a promotion!
Davis Falaska is a very skilled guide. He enthusiasm and passion for his city were infectious. Thank you so much David. Your tour was one of the highlights of our first visit to Rome.
Francesca was great and the content was excellent, though the headphones had some issues with overlap from other tour groups. Aside from that hiccup, the tour was excellent.
Our guide was excellent and so was the whole experience!
Great tour with a knowledgable guide, would highly recommend.
She is the best guide ever. Thank you for such a wonderful experience.
MG was awesome! Very informative and communicated that well. Her knowledge was outstanding!
Our guide was absolutely excellent and so knowledgeable- this was one of our smartest purchases in Italy. Spend the money to get in early!

Wonderful guide. Thank you.
Our tour guide Susanna was amazing. She offered so much information and answered all our questions. Most of all she was kind, thoughtful and very welcoming.
our guide was superb and had an excellent knowledge
Our guide (Luigi) was outstanding - deeply knowledgeable, upbeat, personable and passionate about the site and the subject. I very much enjoyed spending time with him.
I only wish there had been time to shop at a giftshop before we left the museum and went to St. Peters.
Luigi was very charming and knowledgable
Everything was as expected... except the crowd. It's CRAZY. LOL But that was to be expected. As for your guide and everything, I have no complaints, everything was going as it should so all good here. ;o)
Ferdinando's archeological and restoration knowledge was superb and made this experience most enjoyable. Great tour guide! Thanks
Vincenzo was great! He kept my kids 11 and 9 year olds interested, which to me was very important. He was also very helpful with our toddler. Thank-you!
Exceptional guide and tour. It exceeded my expectations.
Claudia was great and very knowledgeable! We loved our early morning tour.
Our guide was amazing, she was enthusiastic and lovely to spend time with. We learnt a lot on the tour and it was well worth beating the public queues. This is the 2nd tour we have had with the company and would definitely book again
It was fantastic to have some quite time in this very busy place. Jowice was an excellent guide. A special experience.
So much to see, so little time...lol. This was an excellent tour for us. Claudia was fun and informative and provided us with a lot of insights into the art and history we were viewing. Loved it.
Felix was so great!! I would recommend him again to anyone of my friends.
So much to see but he did really well getting us to the Sistine early before it was packed full.
One of the best tours I have taken: because of the guide. Great information presented in a humorous intelligent format. Bravo!
Sev was a fantastic guide. Very knowledgable and a great sense of humor. Found the proper balance in providing information during the tour as well as adding his own style to the presentation. Would highly recommend.
Gigi was very knowledgeable and passionate about his subject.
This is a sure winner from Walks of Italy. Maria Grazia was knowledgeable and navigated easily through the Sistine Chapel and the Basilica.
Maria was very knowledgeable and did a great job of navigating our group to avoid the crowds.
The tour was very efficient, on time, and informative. Burcu was a lovely young woman, with a lot of passion and a great smile! Will recommend this tour to others.
Super guide very informative and delivered everything promised plus!!
Felix was fantastic!
What an extraordinary tour and was made all that much better by Emma whose passion for history shone through every time she was talking about the different spots we visited on the tour. Will be recommending anyone that is heading to Rome to book a tour with walks of Italy
Wonderful tour, thank you for having us.
So glad we did the early tour. Gave us more time inside before it dad TOO PACKED AND HOT!!! We kind of had to rush through the museum area but all so worth it!!
Luciana was a fantastic tour guide! There were 8 of us in our group and she took the time to spend time with each of us and make sure we got the most out of the tour. She is extremely knowledgable, friendly and funny! I would highly recommend Luciana and Walks of Italy.
We had an excellent time with Julietta, who was both very engaging and very knowledgable. My only wish is that the Vatican did not herd people through like animals! (I know you have no control ovet this so please take it as a criticism of the Vatican!)
Wonderful tour, wonderful guide. The entire process - meeting our group, touring the Vatican, wrapping up the day was seamless and worth every penny. I will recommend this tour to anyone I know who plans to visit the Vatican!
Bucru was very knowledgeable, prepared and friendly. Another guide was so impressed that he stopped to ask about her use of an iPad. She is the best!
Another wonderful experience with your company
Getting in early to the sisteen chapel is a must and this is the tour to go on small group With Stefanie was well organised and she was very knowledgable and friendly throughout
A wonderful tour that was very well organzised. The guide's knowledge was outstanding and she made the tour very enjoyable.
Dario was fantastic. Would love to have him take us on another tour in the future.

Seb was an incredible guide! We learned so much on the tour and I can't wait to recommend it to friends. St Peters and the Vatican was the highlight of our trip.
Our guide was fantastic. Her love and passion for art and the Sistine chapel were infectious. And how many guides can say that they've painted for the pope!? Phenomenal.
We had a great time. Tony is an excellent guide - very organized and full of information and historical background. We really loved the tour. I was a little worried because of the cost but everything went according to plan. We would certainly use Walks again. Thanks! Cheryl
Ivana was great!!
Excellent tour. Totally worth the money. Our guide Felix was really nice and explained everything in a very good way. We really enjoyed it.
Taking your tour early in the day was the best way to see the Sistine Chapel, St. Peter's and the various Vatican museums. We certainly did beat most of the crowds and the tour was not rushed.
It was worth getting up early to beat the crowds. We noticed a considerable difference in the crowds even an hour after our tour started. Tiberio was absolutely incredible---very passionate about history and religion.
Such a great experience! Luigi was amazing!
Davide was wonderful! Great tour makes sure you see everything at the least crowds possible. Of course there are still many people but they structure it very well.
Juliette was an amazing guide. She was so informative and passionate that you couldn't help but love the every moment of the tour. She is an asset to your company. Wish we had her on all our tours.

Anna was engaging and knowledgeable and made the walk both entertaining and interesting
I was really impressed with Walks of Italy's organization for the tour and we really liked our guide, Toberio. He gave the tour with lots of energy the whole 3.5+ hours and he was extremely knowledgeable (not to mention very friendly). Really great experience!
Our guide, Mauro, was truly amazing! It was very obvious to me that he is an experienced guide, as he was very knowledgeable and funny, but also knew how to pace the tour well. I enjoyed every minute I spent with him, and learned so much from the tour. Thank you!

Small tours worth every cent. Loved getting into Sistine Chapel for 20 min. Good guide Sabrina
Our guide, Andrea, was really great. Perfect English, great knowledge of the collections, and paced the walk nicely.
Sev has obviously been at it a long time! He was almost robot like. Great tour guide but maybe he needs a break... seemed tired of the same routine.
Sabrina was excellent--very informative and professional
Claudia was wonderful and very knowledgeable. We recommend this tour to see the Sistine chapel before it's very crowded and the other highlights in the Vatican.
Our guide was Sev. He was great and planned our visits perfectly to avoid the crowds. Also being American his accent was well understood (no offense to the Italians but they have a funny English accent). Highly recommended tour
Great guide!
Wonderful tour!
The guide was very informative and interesting. We had a marvelous time and would have never seen everything we did without the tour. It was worth every penny. Cindy B
Getting to see much of the Vatican museums before they were packed with tourists made this tour very worthwhile. The guide was very informative and friendly too. We had a great time.
Angela was a delightful guide and made our tour of the Vatican wonderful.
This was an excellent tour of the Sistine Chapel and Vatican - a great way to learn more about the sites but also to avid the very long waits to get in and the crowds. I would definitely recommend doing a this tour.
The tour was excellent - our tour guide was very friendly, knowledgeable and passionate about the subject. It was a bit long though - maybe good to shorten it by 20/30 minutes. Very enjoyable - will refer my friends to it

The tour was fantastic! Antonietta was great with us especially helping us with our little son! Her knowledge was fantastic and will recommend to anyone planning on coming to Rome that they do your tour!

An absolutely amazing tour. Jowita spoke to us for 4 hours of this tour and kept it interesting, compelling and memorable.
Emma is a wonderful guide. She's witty and yet very earnest at the same time. The only constructive feedback I would give is that it would have been helpful to me if she could've spoken a little less quickly- although lets face it she had a little of info to share!
Fantastic!!
Luigi was very knowledgeable and extremely polite. We could not have asked for a better tour guide.
Great tour. The guide was enthusiastic and informative. It was a long tour and I was amazed at how she kept up her energy the whole time.

The tour guide was great. The headsets provided by the Vatican did not work very well, but the tour guide handled it extremely well.
Our guide was fantastic and full of helpful information. He made our trip to the Vatican very memorable.

Great time with no issues.
Very knowledgeable guide, provided time to answer questions, set a good pace for Pristine Sistine. We highly recommend touring with Felix!
Angela was an excellent guide. We learned so much and she was very informative. She made it interesting for everyone from a 9 year old to the over 70s crowd. Pristine Sistine was a fantastic tour and a terrific way to see the Sistine Chapel without the hordes. We highly recommend this tour.
Jeb's knowledge and demeanour was amazing and he made our Pristine Sistine tour bearable despite the heat. He answered every question with ease and expertise. It was great to get in to the sites before they got too busy and his knowledge added to the experience. Highly recommend.
Pristine Sistine was an absolute great tour. Loved our guide Jowita and the information and access to sites. Loved the sound system. We have done others and they were awful. Good to hear and see everything. We will use walks of Italy again. Thanks
Luciana was a great guide for our Pristine Sistine tour.
Our Pristine Sistine tour was amazing! I loved the route we took and the time took to describe various works of art. I would have enjoyed more dialogue in St. Peter's, but other than that we had a delightful time.
Dario was an informative guide. Pristine Sistine was a great tour due to small number of people in the group.
Our guide was incredible. She had a great knowledge of history and she imparted this clearly and succinctly and in a very friendly but professional manner
After booking the confirmation email does not mention the duration of the tour. Would be good to include in the email confirmation. Our guide was awesome. She explained things really well.
Our guide was great!
Really enjoyed the tour and the navigation around the Vatican was really helpful - would have been difficult and not fun to try it ourselves! Our guide was very informative and helpful.
Great tour. I will recommend to friends!
Excellent tour and the guide was well informed
Tour was perfect and our guide wonderful!
Very informative guide. We were very surprised at just how large the museums are at the Vatican. The highlight would have to be the Sistine Chapel.
Dario gave a terrific tour: the perfect combination of interesting details leavened with a little humor.
Absolutely fantastic!
Wonderful tour... excellent guide!!
Michele was knowledgeable, enthusiastic about the subject, and clearly just a good guy. We were glad to be in his group.
Sev's experience & knowledge of the Vatican was again outstanding. We could not have got a better tour guide. We have recommended the tours to various people & told them to ask for Sev, if possible. He is a credit to your company& should be awarded accordingly. Lynne & Gary Weston
Camilla was outstanding loved her in depth knowledge.
Great guide - extremely knowledgeable and enthusiastic about the subject. Learned so much and had a great time. So glad we did the tour of the Sistine Chapel before opening hours. That was worth every penny!
Tony facilitated an awesome tour!! I appreciated her knowledge of not only the buildings and artifacts we were seeing, but also her understanding of the movement of crowds so that we could have quality time in the Chapel.
The guide was the best ever I dont remember his name but I think he is from spain and his name is Felix or something. Thanks a lot great tour

Luigi was terrific!
Francesca was excellent. Very knowledgeable and personable. My family enjoyed the Pristine Sistine tour immensely.

There was one member of our tour who was a little bit difficult, but our tour guide Shakil handled it brilliantly and gave an excellent tour!
Tiberio was excellent and really made the Pristine Sistine tour a major highlight of our trip. I left an excellent review on trip advisor.
Great tour and guide. Our guide took us right away to the Sistine Chapel while the crowds were touring the Vatican Museum. Then we did the. Used. And went again through the Sistine Chapel. The tour through St. Peter's was great.
Amazing tour. Our guide was the best!
Fantastic tour and fantastic guide. Can't imagine going to the Vatican without a guide. She made it so much more interesting! She was so skilled at getting us through the packed areas and was a delight to be with.
We had to leave the tour early because my husband has mobility issues and could not keep up with the group. However, we still were very satisfied with all that we saw and the way it was conducted by Toni!
Two things; 1. I expected, in error, that the number of people in the Sistine chapel would less. Still a wonderful early start to the day. 2. The headsets would cut out. At times we were missing the information. Sabrina was wonderful. Knowledgeable and eager to share.
This tour starts very early and it is hard to get up and get a teenager up, but it is so worth it! There were others in the Sistine Chapel but not many. I would not do this any other way. The guide was amazing and she gave a lot of history. Wonderful morning
We loved our guide Burju. She was spectacular in the wealth of h re knowledge and her attention to details. Her use of the time we waited on line was very smart and prepared us to enjoy the Sistine Chapel portion more thoroughly. We are glad we booked with Walks of Italy Thanks.
Our guide was wonderful!
Wonderful!
Wonderful!
My guide was EXCELLENT. Very interesting and great presentation
We absolutely loved our tour and guide ( I wish I could remember her name; I think she was born in Argentina or Venezuela and she was amazing)!
The tour was great and our guide Ivanka was the greatest. We would recommend your tour company to everyone
Ivana was terrific. She knows the ins and outs of the Vatican. I will recommend her to all our friends.
This one was even better! So glad we invested in tours with Walks of Italy!
First time using walks of Italy, we're glad we chose them. Our guide was very knowledgeable.
At first I was being rushed but then I realized what our tour guide was doing which was to get us to the Sistine Chapel before it got crowded. She did a great job hitting the main points and keeping us on task.
Fabulous experience throughout! Christy in reservations to sign in (don't know name, same delightful woman each time), and Tiberio on our expressive, informative tour!!! He obviously enjoys making history come alive!
Friendly and answered all of our questions. Has lovely personality.
It was great and Tongi was full of knowledge! Seeing the Sistine without crowds was awesome. Would definitely recommend!
Really good tour, the guide was amazing!
Very knowledgeable and friendly guide.
Loved every minute and our guide (I wish i could remember her name but i believe she is originally from Argentina) was astoundingly knowledgeable!

A wonderful, attentive and knowledgable guide with an unsurpassed understanding of the Vatican, the Sistine Chapel, the art and monuments of both fantastic places.
Maurizio was a great tour guide. He was very knowledgeable and was able to plan the tour so we had maximum time to view the Sistine Chapel and Raphael's works with the least crowds.
Guide was very polite and professional. Very thorough tour of the Vatican Museums and St. Peters.
The tour was wonderful, and the guide, Angela was excellent. She went out of her way to involve my daughters, ages 12 and 7, and kept them interested. I will happily and regularly recommend this tour.
Very well organized and very well presented. Very thankful that guide pushed us to get in line earlier than was on the schedule to beat the crowd
Our guide was extremely knowledgeable and enthusiastic about the information shared. She was patient with questions and clearly loved her job.
Our guide on Sat 15 July was AWESOME! Truely wonderful. Thank you.
Elanora was amazing in both her knowledge and ability to keep a group as she be unit through the crush of people. This tour is the only way I would visit the Vatican museum. Without someone like Elanora the time would be wasted.
Our guide was wonderful. He knew the information and he brought the Vatican to us. He gave us a tour which we will remember because he took so much information and art work and made it a wonderful story. I thank you, Erin
Super tour, thank you
Great tour
Best tour ever.
Felix was fantastic. His energy was contagious even early in the morning! He was clearly excited to explain the history and significance of each item at the Vatican. He also had lots of experience to navigate the Vatican as it became more busy later in the tour. Thank you!
Great tour of a huge gallery! Well prepared, avoided the crowds and was very informative
Gigi is a remarkable guide! He is personable, funny, a fast and detailed thinker and most of all, exceptionally knowledgeable. He is able to manage a group of people with great ease. It doesn't get any better than the experience we had with him. Highest honors to this exceptional gentleman.
Giovanni was an excellent guide! Very knowledgeable and friendly. The pace of the tour was great, and being some of the first people in the Raphael rooms and Sistine Chapel that day was such a special experience. Thank you!
Tour guide Davide, provided much incite will giving the tour. He was very friendly, and invited questions which he always had an answer to.
Awesome tour..
Davide is the best! The tour was 4 hours but it didn't even feel that long. Very informative and fun!

Our guide was wonderful. Very passionate about what she does. Knows the best way to avoid the crowds which was the best. Showed us the most important and relevant things. We loved the tour, could not have been more happier.
I can not remember our guide's name but she was blonde, wore her hair braided, and carried a green scarf. She was great, we learned a lot and ahe made sure we hit all the major points. I loved my Vatican experience. THANKS
Overall our tour experience was excellent.
Our guide was very informative and entertaining. I would highly recommend this tour and your company to my friends.
Andrea was great. He was friendly and informative. We enjoyed the tour.
A very interesting and enjoyable tour. Our guide was excellent and very humorous. Vatican headsets not as good as those used for the Crypts and Catacombs tour but we understand that you have to use them.
Our tour guide was great.
After to speaking to several other people regarding their visit to the Sistine Chapel we are very glad we chose the early option before it opened to the public. It was crowded enough.
Igor was very informative and insightful as a guide. Thoroughly enjoyed listening to his explanations about the art pieces.
Claudia did a great job guiding us through the Vatican.
Felix was the best tour guide, he made the whole place come alive.
Francesca was SO WONDERFUL!. Fantastic guide, give her a raise!
Was a wonderful tour!
I did think we'd experience the Sistine Chapel without so many people. There were at least 15 other groups in there.
The tour guide was great, fun and enthusiastic.We really enjoyed the small group!
We enjoyed seeing the Vatican!! It is so busy though which is a drawback! Bruno was a very good guide!
Seeing the Sistine before the crowds was wonderful. The priest visit and personal blessing was a highlight.
Gaston was an excellent tour guide! He was very knowledgeable, professional and attentive. We are so glad we used Walks of Italy rather than a self guided tour. Thanks for the great service. Hope to see you in the future!
Our guide was animated and knowledgeable. He arranged the timing of our tour so that we enjoyed the Sistine Chapel to a much greater degree than if we had just toured the Vatican in a regular fashion. Thank you! It was one of the best moments of our trip!
I loved our guide-she was kind, knowledgeable and fun to spend the morning with. Thank you so much!
Sev did a great job on our tour of the Colosseum we ask for him again. While we were on this tour people hearing his presentation left the guide they had and joined our group. Ask for Sev for sure !!!!
GiGi did an excellent job entertaining us with facts and insight into the Vatican and the Bascilica. We highly recommend him as he did a great job interspersing facts with interesting stories.
Dario was fantastic! Gave a lot of information but made the tour fun and interesting; would love to have him as a guide again!
Our guide did an excellent job
Our guide was incredible! He made our visit something we will always remember.
Great guy
Bravo to Gus! Fantastic guide.
The tour was fantastic, I was skeptical it would be worth it but it definitely was to see the Chapel in the morning. There were some problems with the ear pieces though, lots of interference from other guides.
Sven was AMAZING ! He kept everyone super interested on a long hot tour . He was truly the best we have ever had .
Sev we our tour guide and absolutely incredible. We learned so much. He was great at navigating through the crowds and we appreciated the opportunity to spend time in the Sistine Chapel without crowds. We would recommend this tour guide company to anyone visiting Rome!
Jovi was an excellent tour guide. She exceeded our expectations! Very well organized, informative, and very professional.
Gigi was extremely informative and had a great sense of humor. We learned a lot.
Jeb was very good, knowledgeable. The only complaint was that he kept saying how much better Walks of Italy tours were over others. The sales job got kinda old after awhile
Worth the price for the convenience. Andre was great!!
Dario was amazing: knowledgeable, interesting and fun! Thank you for a great experience!
Julietta is incredible.
Andrea was great! He was knowledgeable and answered all our questions. We really enjoyed the tour!
Francesca was excellent. Knowledgeable and personable. Very flexible with our group of 14, ranging in age from 7 to 68. Viewing the Sistine early in the morning was a truly memorable experience.
Gigi was awesome! He knows so much about art and history of the Vatican. He was very entertaining as well. We truly enjoyed his behind the scene stories. Great tour! Thanks !
I enjoyed the tour, she didn't overload with too much info.
Really great tour, and a fantastic guide. Would highly recommend.
Gianluigi was fantastic. So full of energy and passion. He knew everything about the Vatican and the museums, and I mean everything. Any question about any little detail and he knew the answer, and he was so much fun. Well worth it, and will do again next time I am in Rome
I had a great time on this tour. However, the name and description are a bit misleading. I thought we would get into the Sistine Chapel early before anyone else. I was not disappointed with the experience but I was confused at the beginning as to why we did not get in early. Thanks!
We had a wonderful guide and we enjoyed our walking tour very much.
Sev is a wonderful guide, full of information that made our visit to the Vatican and St. Peter's more meaningful. We would not hesitate to use Walks of Italy again for future tours should we return to Italy.
It was very tiring , with lots of walking but our guide was very informative and of course, the Sistine Chapel in itself was already amazing! The meeting point was organized and headsets worked well.
Dorinda (?) our tour guide was very informative, witty and also humorous. The tour of 3 1/2 hours was well paced, with sufficient time allowed in particular within the Sistine Chapel. 10/10 for a wonderful morning tour! Would have no hesitation in booking with your company again.
Excellent tour. Glad we did it. The guide, Sev, was very professional and informative. We highly recommend him.
Francesca was absolutely wonderful. We loved being on her tour. She was interested in us, knowledgeable, charming, and delightful. We have the best memories of our tour because of her.
Our tour guide was wonderful - very knowledgeable, fun, and pleasant. She was fantastic!
Would be good if tickets could be via mobile app instead of paper.
Our guide was superb!!! Gave just the right amount of information and kept it interesting and always friendly!
Our guide was fabulous!
Wonderful tour!
It was an excellent tour and Maurizio, our guide was very efficient at getting us around an incredibly busy area
She was a amazing tour guide. We couldn't find the meeting place and she still found us outside the Vatican Museum. Thank you so much. Amazing!!!
We took many tours in Italy, and Silvia was the best guide we had. She was easy to understand and filled every minute with interesting information. Some tour guides when walking didn't talk much but she did and I loved all the information. Well done.
Loved this tour! Extremely educational, tour guide was great, don't visit without Walks of Italy they make the whole experience so much better we did 4 total tours and after each one my wife and i we're in complete aw!!! Thank you
Vincenzo is a passionate expert; we and you are very lucky to have him as a guide. He was knowledgeable, kind, and very respectful. I had no idea how crowded it would be; I hope you can upgrade his mic - the audio was giving him problems. Although, he was fantastic and handled it with grace.
Fantastic!
Guide was wonderful!
Really really great tour. Our guide was upbeat and knowledgeable. So glad we did the Vatican with you guy.
Special compliment to our guide Sabrina. She provided enthousiastic and expert commentaar. Alsof she manager our group efficiently.
Doriana was great!!
We will recommend you to all of our friends! Marvelous tour guide and we are not Catholics. Wonderful tour! Thank you so much, Mary Selfridge & George Gasper La Center, WA
Guide was a little difficult to understand.
An informative tour, definitely worth taking.
We thoroughly enjoyed our tour. Thank you and keep up the great work!
Charming, great tour and guide!
We loved our tour and felt it was well worth the time and money. Rosa was an amazing guide who provided us with endless but interesting information about what we were seeing. She did an exceptional job of navigating us through the crowds and providing us with the best experience possible. Loved it!
Our tour guide was so sweet and had an abundant amount of info to share.
Best guide we had on the whole trip, we took 4 tours, Emma was very passionate about her subject, very kind, well informed, and enjoyed her personality! Good Job a Emma !
Awesome tour. Sev was an amazing guide. His passions for history really shows. I highly. Recommend him
Excellent!
She was terrific. Very knowledgeable and smart regarding the best use of our time. We were fortunate to have her.
Emma was an amazing guide. Was able to provide us with in depth knowledge with humor & authority. She was a Gem. I wish she was my private tour guide for all of Rome. Grazie Mille.
It is kind of a whirlwind tour given the size of the Vatican - but the tour guide did a good job keeping everyone together and highlighting the key exhibits.
Antonette was great. Her experience of the best order to look at the various points made it easy to see everything without feeling overcrowded. Her commentary was excellent.
Best guide of our entire trip to Rome!
Loved our guide - I think his name was Andrea Domine? He was extremely thoughtful and brought lots of depth to the tour. Of course seeing the Sistine Chapel before the crowds was the experience of a lifetime. Highly recommend.
Our guide Hector was great. We would have been completely overwhelmed and under informed without him. So glad we did this tour.
Our guide, Guido, was one of the best ever! His knowledge, his enthusiasm and his willingness to explain everything made for a most outstanding experience.This was an invaluable experience. I can't think of a better tour, ever; and I've been traveling for 45+ years!
Our tour guide was excellent. She was always smiling and I loved that about her.
Gigi was the best tour guide around! We really enjoyed his expertise on the pieces of art in the Vatican. This is truly the only way to get to experience the Sistine Chapel with any sort of decent space and time to take it in. Well worth it!
Our guide, Teresa, was excellent. Very knowledgeable and pleasant.
Fabulous tour! We took a total of 4 tours with your company and were happy with all of them.
This is the best tour that you can take for the Sistine Chapel! The tour guides are walking encyclopedias, very enjoyable!
Jeb was easy to understand and pointed out the highlights....with great ambition to show us all the main attractions in a small amount of time. Just enough time and information before we hit overload.
Ivana was knowledgeable and answered questions well. Was hoping to get more info on the basilica.
I really enjoyed Valentina as a guide and would definitely sign up for other tours with her as a guide.
Our guide, Uta, was very knowledgeable and very charismatic. We managed the daunting task of seeing the Vatican Museum and St Peters in about 3 hours. There were plenty of rooms we walked through with a quick word but stopped and enjoyed the highlights. Very satisfied.
Dorianna, our tour guide, was impressive and knowledgeable. She was considerate of everyone in our group as well as those around us. A wonderful tour and amazing tour guide. 10 stars!!!!!
Very interesting tour! Perfect!!!
Very detailed and thorough tour of the Vatican. Luciana gave a personalised tour and made an effort to get to know each member of the group and their personal interests. She was well organised and we would highly recommend her to friends, thanks so much!
Wonderful experience. We can't wait to get back
Wonderful experience. We can't wait to get back
Super friendly and informative and best of all meeting before the crowds!
Simone, our Guide, was excellent!! So knowledgeable and professional!! We were so lucky to be there with him!!
Simone, our Guide, was excellent!! So knowledgeable and professional!! We were so lucky to be there with him!!
Francesca was a fabulous guide and we enjoyed our tour. Couldn't believe how much more crowded it was when we had to go back through the Sistine Chapel at the end of our tour. Well worth it.
Our Vatican tour with Maria was fantastic! She was very knowledgeable and helpful. Great experience!
Bruno was an excellent guide and took great care shepherding us through the crowds and enlightening us with his knowledge.
Susanna was an excellent guide!! Taking us quickly through various rooms, to which we would return, in order to get us to the Sistine Chapel while it had the least amount of visitors. Very good idea!! Susanna also was very knowledgeable regarding the history of The Vatican and St Peter's Basilica!
Really great guide
Excellent guide, very knowledge. This tour, and the Coloseum tour yesterday are two of the best tours I have had...superb, Walks of Italy!!!!
Angela was quick and knew exactly where to go. A wonderful experience

Our guide Gigi was excellent. He worked hard to make sure we were getting the information we were interested in and to make sure we moved along at the appropriate pace.
Sabrina was an excellent tour guide and her knowledge of the Vatican was impressive. My son and I had a wonderful time!
Thank you -- this was an excellent tour with an excellent and knowledgeable guide.
The guide was great and size of the group was good. We started on time and I liked how organized the check-in process seemed. It was a flawless execution, thank you for a splendid tour.
I didn't expect all the crowds!! Our tour guide was masterful in getting our group through the Vatican, educating us as to the art we were seeing and negotiating the crowds. I feel lucky to have had her as our guide.
Our guide's love and appreciation for art made the tour that much more interesting. We also appreciated her determination to get us into the Sistine Chapel as soon as possible.
It was an excellent tour. A bit of a drag standing around for 30 mins or so before going in but I understand why this was necessary. It was excellent or be able to see the chapel and museums without the crush of people.
Sabrina was amazing, knew an abundant amount of information and took great care of us inside the museum which was filled with slow moving tourists. Loved it!
Mauricio was outstanding! His knowledge made the tour so incredible. Thank you!
Never had used your company before but the service, the information and the guide were excellent. We thoroughly enjoyed it.
Excellent guide, really enjoyed it
Luigi was a very knowledgeable tour guide and made our Vatican experience wonderful!
Really enjoyed this tour and worth the money. Dario is excellent, knowledgeable and patient. We have already been recommending this tour to others. Thank you!
Giuglio was outstanding !!!
This was a fantastic tour, we learned so much from our guide - she was both knowledgable and enthusiastic! we will absolutely recommend this tour to our friends who may visit Rome in the future.
It is incredible to see the Capella Sistina with so few people, everything very well explained. Superb.
Great Overview with time to explore after the tour.
Can't say enough great things about this one. The guide was excellent and we enjoyed every minute of it. Excellent service. Thank you for being so organized and providing the best tour I could've had.
Great experience.
Sylvia was delightful and an excellent guide for such a huge collection.
Sistine Chapel and galleries was dangerously crowded. Appreciated our guides efforts to provide the highlights and to "work to rooms" to avoid the crowds as best as possible.
Great to be one of the first to get into the Sistine chapel. The tour was a little rushed - wished there was a slightly longer version so we could enjoy the museums more as well. But overall, great organized tour and guide - thanks!
Dorians was an amazing guide. She made the tour interesting, informative and kept it all moving. She held it together beautifully.
It was a well organized thoughtful tour. We thoroughly enjoyed it and felt we got more out of the visit than my husband and I did when we visited solo many years ago. The grandson loved it.
We really loved Juliet, she was so friendly and knowledgeable. We had such a good time on the tour and learned a lot. We've already recommended walks of vatican to family who are coming to Rome in October!
BO was great.
Laura was extremely knowledgeable and charming. We had an excellent experience.
Highly enjoyable! Gigi was great! However the only issue was my head was about to explode with all the knowledge he was throwing out for us to catch!
Great Tour . So much to see, difficult to fit everything into a 3 or 4 hour timeframe .
Great tour! Gigi was so knowledgeable and fun. We highly recommend this tour.
Suzanna was exceptional- engaging and we couldn't have asked for a better experience!! Grazie!!
Tour was incredible. Our guide made it fantastic. Her knowledge was simply amazing. Well done!
The guide was very knowledgeable and very polite during our tour. There was so much to see at the Vatican and I am impressed that she was able to pace everything so well. It must be very difficult to keep tours under 4 hours in length but our guide did an excellent job. Grazie mille!
Very enjoyable tour for us. Thank you.
Emma was a fantastic guide. would highly recommend.
Eleonora did a great job with the Vatican tour!!!
Mauricio was fabulous!
Being able to experience the Sistine Chapel before it is open to the general public is an experience that my family will never forget. Dario was our guide and he did a wonderful job sharing his knowledge.
We had a wonderful guide. She was interesting, smart and friendly. We hated to see our tour end !
Francesca was great - Very ebullient - had a real zest for the art. Meeting place was chaotic needed more than one check in person.
Incredible tour!! We were so happy to get into the Vatican before the hordes of people! The tour guide was incredibly well spoken, entertaining and informative! Would absolutely recommend to anyone!
A wonderful tour! Our guide was incredibly knowledgeable and fun. She did a great job navigating the Vatican to give us the best experience possible! If anything, the tour is totally worth the extra time you get in during the morning hour!
Tiberius was amazing! He was fully of energy and excitement and knowledge. It was thoroughly enjoying and I will definitely recommend it to my clients!
This was wonderful
Very good
Sylvia was wonderful as our guide. We couldn't have more pleased.
Excellent tour & very knowledgeable guide!
That lady from Argentina... the guide... Shen was amazing... skilled guide. Made the whole thing perfect. Treat here nice :-)
Worth the money spent. Like the size of the group. Guido is very informative and has a right pace for us to walk and observe the museum.
Great!!!!
The tour was amazing, and Sabrina was excellent. We were so impressed with her knowledge, she obviously loves her job. We would definitely recommend the early morning tour to anyone going to Rome.
Francesca, our guide, was so enthusiastic about her topic that we hung on every word. She was so nice and personable and she made our tour so much more fabulous with her vivid descriptions and stories.
Loved the tour, the early access to the Sistine Chapel made it a much better experience. Our guide was great.
What a wonderful surprise to see that we had Anna for this tour as well. Her personality was stellar and she made this such a great experience! Highly recommend!
It was a great tour. The guide was very knowledgeable and accommodating of us having a child. It was a bit difficult to get around, but that was more of a function of the Vatican Museum itself (narrow and crowded). However getting in early was a definite plus, especially for the Sistine Chapel
The guide was the most helpful. She made the entire trip so enjoyable and this was certainly my favourite part of my Europe trip. She was knowledgable.
Stephanie was an excellent guide. Very knowledgeable. Just the right amount of information - interesting and informative - and memorable. Thank you so much!
What a wonderful experience! It was more than We ever expected. Our guide Anna was outstanding and we couldn't be more pleased that we booked your Pristine Sistine tour. We will certainly recommend it to our friends! Thank you, Anna.
really informative, excellent tour
Nice to get in before the crowds though I did notice that we were entering through a que but "City Tours" had direct entrance.
Anna was incredible, knowledge and delightful
Fantastic guide!!
Learned so much and our guide was perfect...he really watched his group, provided an enormous amount of info and made the experience so much fun!
Loved our guide! She was full of information and was happy to answer anyone's questions. She really made it a wonderful experience.

Our guide was excellent in her knowledge and descriptions of the features through out the tour
This was a wonderful experience; Emma was amazing!!! She shared so much knowledge and fun, bringing the chapel, and all the history to life! Grazie mille, Emma :)
It was a great tour and our guide was awesome. He was very knowledgeable and thorough and I would highly recommend him. This tour is the very best way to see the Sistine and Vatican and Walks of Italy are the best.
Lots of knowledge shared well without being overwhelming. Considerate. Highly recommend.
Our tour guide was awesome, extremely informative and I have recommended this to my friends traveling to Italy in September
The only issue was the listening device quality. A lot of interference. Tour guide did a great job though.
Hello, This tour was one of the best we experienced in our 30 days vacation to Italy. We just came back home and we just cant remember the name of our guide, but, she was very knowledgable and very nice. It was a fabulous tour, thank you. Louise&Laurent Simard Canada
The only thing that we didn't like were the huge crowds towards the end of the tour.
Your guide was very good. He had a good way of telling the story, with a seriously way and with some humor. We had some real good hours during the sightseeing. We will absolutely recommend your company for trips like this.
Our guide was excellent. She wove her great personality into a very knowledgeable tour of the Vatican.
Our guide was super! She was personable, accommodating, informative, energetic and patient. She made our trip to the Vatican one we will never forget.
Guide was very good, extremely knowledgeable.
Susanna was wonderful! Great pace! Loved it.
Our guide was Doriana de Padoua, not Maria Teresa. She was very professional, answered all questions and provided excellent information about everything we saw. I can't imagine the experience could have been better!
Maurizio was fantastic, extremely knowledgeable and passionate. We would take any tour lead by him, he was that good.
Jonathan and Anna were outstanding. Loved the whole day. Lunch was the only part I thought could be improved. It was pretty bad. Carlo was our driver. Wonderful!
Mauricio was fantastic. Obviously well educated regarding the topic, patient, and funny
Our guide was wonderful
Anna was amazing!!! She kept the flow of the tour going well. She kept my attention and I really appreciated her passion for her job. I have taken a lot of tours since I have been here and Anna was definitely one of our top guides!!!!
Francesca did a marvelous job bringing all the art into life and is a very engaging guide.
Carmella was an excellent, very knowledgeable and enthusiastic tour guide! She was a true historian! We thoroughly enjoyed every bit of the tour. Would highly recommend this tour!
Guide was very knowledgeable and informative. Could have spent the whole day listening to his explanations.
Toni was really good. I would definitely recommend her as a guide.
Wonderful tour! Our guide was very knowledgeable and spending time in the Vatican museums and Sistine Chapel before the crowds was wonderful! Highly recommend.
Guide was difficult to keep up with
Luigi was out your guide The Sistine chapel very crowded It seems that they should let a certain amount of peopl in at one time. It was cray crowded. Mr. Luigi was very informative
Sev was professional and patient, friendly, informative, and attentive.
Our Guide was simply amazing!!!
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!!
Amazing..well done
This was a wonderful experience. Roberta was so helpful when I made the booking and Claudia our guide was great. Thanks
Emma was fantastic, very knowledgeable and informative, she also loves her job, people and her dog! Thanks
Very knowledgeable and personal guide, certainly was good at navigating around and through the crowds in order that we could expierence the best possible visit. Great job, thanks Donna and Stephen
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!!!
Loved the tour! It was our favorite thing we did in Rome. Sabrina was an excellent tour guide. She had so much knowledge and really gave life to what we were seeing. Would recommend to anyone. It was magical.
Our tour guide was spectacular!
Our guide was fantastic! So knowledgeable on all related topics covering the historical, political and archaeological facts. Also a very nice demeanour. I would 100% recommend him
Great tour and great guide!
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 terrific. She kept our knowledge at the right level based on her art historian background. She was very efficient in navigating through crowds and focused on getting the most out of the tour for us.
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.
Girl rules the school! He is AWESOME!!
The tour guide was great!!
Our guide (G.G.) was knowledgable and engaging. We had a great time.
My tour was great! I would not have gotten as much out of the Vatican without it. Thank you!
Great tour. Our guide was very knowledgeable and welcoming. Willing to answer and questions we had. Only disappointment was not being able to finish the tour in the basilica as expected.
Had Gigi as guide. It's been a while since I had such a good guide. Thanks!
Susanne We were very happy with the tour & guide made it memorable; she was informative, delightful, thoughtful, concerned about members of group, full of information & an asset to walks of Italy.
Gigi was just amazing!!!!
Jeb was very knowledgeable and friendly. He made the morning very enjoyable.
Our guide was wonderful. She gave us just the right amount of detail, background and history without being overwhelming. We loved our tour and would recommend our friends to use Walks anytime they travel. Thanks again.
WOW! This tour was amazing. Our guide, B...sorry don't remember full name, Art Historian. EXCELLENT! Great tour. Will highly recommend to friends.
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!!!
Bril tour ,morning was by far the best time.4 friends are doing the same tours in September with u.we r going to Venice in September so u r our first choice thanks Chris John 😎
We really enjoyed our tour with Angela. She has a great personality and was well equipped with additional visual material which was of great interest. Thank you.
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!!!
We loved it!
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.
Very knowledgeable and willing to answer many questiond
Perfect!
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.
Tour guide was very engaging and responded to our every needs during the tour. All around a very enjoyable experience. Excellent job.
Our guide Gigi was awesome! So knowledgeable and very enjoyable to listen to. Overall, we enjoyed the tour very much.
Sev was a terrific guide. He's very knowledgeable and his teaching experience obviously helps him tell complex stories in a way that works well with tour groups.
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.

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.

Our guide was great. The headset was not so great, but she changed it to a different one that worked fine.

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!

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!!!
