We had a very great

We had a very great experience as our tour guide was very knowledgeable and engaging with anecdotes handson visuals and articulated informative descriptions as we passed through each exhibit She also did a good job navigating given how crowded the museum was The only issue was that we were not able to go to the St Peters Basilica but this was probably because of the time of day

Expeditious Experience

The Vatican tour was great Your tour guide will pick and choose the sites to discuss You will miss out on a lot as the tour was 3 hours 1 hour if you choose basilica stairs and upper stairs You have to be ok with the fact its very crowded and if you wanted to see everything it would take 1 full day or more It also gets very hot
