If you have no agenda and no idea about the Vatican Museums this evening tour may be for you. We never actually entered until nearly an hour after tour started, as the guide spent a considerable time explaining what to expect in sistine chapel. We ended up going by so much so quickly, as opposed to having that extra hour in the museum itself. You are then hustled out as the museum closes, so if you want to linger or spend more time and get better bang for your buck, take an earlier tour or just do the audio tour on your own and spend time where you want to.

Vale was very knowledgeable, but it was at times difficult to keep up with her. Our 2 and 1/2 hour tour was over in less than 2 hours.

This tour was fabulous. Angela was a great tour guide and, on a hot day, did her best to keep us out of the hot sun whenever possible. We learned so much and would not have gotten as much out of visiting these sights if we did them on our own.

We took this tour for the reason of advertisement of quieter time off hours for the Sistine Chapel. During the tour we were told we would have time at the Sistine Chapel but as soon as the guide dropped us off, we were rushed out due to it closing at 7:30. This is a huge miss for the tour company and false advertising since the staff said it always closes then. Also the tour said max 15 people and we were over 20 despite 8 people not showing. Our tour guide was excellent but the tour is not as advertised, which is not her fault. So disappointing.

Anna was the most knowledgeable guide I have ever had. On my second trip to the Vatican Museums, and after extensive research online, Anna still taught me so much more than I expected. Thank you. Jodie
