Did the Vatican Museum, Sistine Chapel and St Peters tour recently. We had gone to St Peters the day before so that part was a bit of a repeat for us, but certainly the guides explanations helped us better understand some of the things we were looking at. The museum and Sistine part of the tour was absolutely first rate!... More

We did the skip the line Vatican tour with my husband, with small group upgrade. It was worth every penny. We breezed through security, went straight to the museums, the Sistine Chapel and the Basilica. Our guide Cristina was very professional, friendly, helpful and informative. We enjoyed it a lot! I can only recommend it! It felt especially worth it... More

We did the early Sistine Chapel, St. Peter's, and Vatican Crypts tour. Everything was wonderful. I could have used a little more time in St. Peter's and the meeting location was a little difficult to find but that was completely on me. The headphones worked very well and were appreciated. The tour guide was friendly & helpful. Very much worth... More

Our guide was Federica and she was lovely. Very happy and talkative. as well as being very knowledgeable- she clearly loves her job! We did have to drop out before the end as the three hours of standing, walking and listening was a bit much, but that's our fault, not theirs. We learned a lot and saw a lot we... More

This tour was outstanding! Our guide Alessia had so much information to share with us throughout the entire Vatican City. She helped us through the security checks all the way to the other end so there is nothing to worry about at all. We could not believe how many paintings, scultures and historical artifacts are hidden away in the Vatican... More

Enjoyed this tour and exceeded my expectations. Silvia's knowledge of artists, paintings, Vatican history, and St. Peter's Basilica was incredible. She made our visit this morning very pleasant and informative.

Booked this tour for myself and my wife after reading all the amazing reviews. We got to the meeting place and were split into groups of probably about 15 people per guide and I think about 5 guides! After we got inside we knew this tour was a big mistake after our guide spent about 10 minutes talking about a... More

We booked a tour with City Wonders as they were rated highly and were not as expensive as some of the other tour companies and they are linked in some way to the Vatican authorities it seems. it did mean that when ur guide went to get our admission tickets, she didn't have to queue and was able to go...

Huge thank you to Tiffany who made our trip rome amazing, our first tour in the colesseum was a little bit of a let down due to the tour guide and we actually left a little early, so we were a little bit unsure about the vatican city tour but tiffany made it amazing, she knew who we all were...

Would highly recommend this company for tours. We booked in advance before we left the UK. We booked three tours with them in total. We were sent complete instructions of where to meet and how to get there which were invaluable. The tour guides were all a font of all knowledge and we wouldn't have got the same experience had...
