This tour was definitely the highlight of our trip

This tour was definitely the highlight of our trip Our guide was lovely and so knowledgeable We were able to go into the Vatican Museums had a chance to go into each room and take photos while the guide explained some of the history We had access to the Sistine Chapel which would highly recommend doing After the tour we were given the opportunity to visit St Peters Basilica on our own dont know if this is provided every time but if offered I would 100 do it Our guide was kind enough to give us some information about St Peters and we were given access to it through the Sistine chapel which avoided the long lines outside Leave enough time to be able to find the meeting place so you dont miss the tour Would highly recommend this tour
