This tour with Luca was very memorable and easy to follow (luckily the group wasn't too big). The size of the group also helped (we were 15 with the guide). The guide's passion for the items on the itinerary and history made even the time spent in queue fly by easily. Loved the mix of fun facts, jokes and historical facts.

I found the tour slightly rushed through the Vatican we didn't stop to view many things. and when we did stop it was a bit too much detail on the one subject would have been better having a high level overview on more of the artifacts. also was a pain having to queue to get back in St Peters Basilica.

Comprehensive tour of the Vatican Museums and St. Peter's. Guia knows a lot to tell in a fun way. Total duration of the tour was longer than planned because we had to queue again for the security check at St Peter's, which was also indicated in advance. However, this really did deplete my family's energy by the end of the tour. Well organised, meeting point well marked.
