Chiara was an enthusiastic and prepared guide, we spent a few hours without ever getting bored or distracted. Obviously the museums are immense and a day would not be enough to visit them but thanks to this tour we have had the opportunity to deepen some of the most beautiful rooms in addition to the Sistine chapel of course!

+ The guide was very good; they delivered what they promised - The negative side has nothing to do with the tour provider, but a general trap regarding tours to the Vaticane. When they sell as "skip the line" or "come before the crowd", people tend to believe that they will be with very few people inside. Forget it! Even the early tour is packed with tourist. So if you don't care about guide, it will be much cheaper by the ticket direct in the Vaticane page.
