Great tour by Barbara. She was an excellent guide, very informative and welcomed everyone's questions. She was also really good at allowing us extra time in areas when we wanted and not rushing through an area unless everyone was ready. The skip the line definitely saved us a huge amount of time too because the queues were very long.

Definitely worth the money, great tour guide. Purchasing this activity is the best stress free option out there. When going inside the Vatican there’s a lot of people and it’s a bit confusing because you have to claim tickets etc, the guide did everything for us! She did the line to claim tickets and get the radios. I tell my family that I felt like a little kid stress free just absorbing all the information and enjoying the tour
