Early morning Vatican tour-A must do when in Rome
Amazing tour and experience! Sara was a phenomenal guide. She was extremely knowledgeable, engaging and infused her contagious personality and humor throughout the tour. I can’t imagine doing this on our own considering the depth of history and education Imparted by Sara and trying to navigate the overwhelming crowds and lines. This tour is well worth the price!

BOOK THIS TOUR!!
Barbara was absolutely fantastic! She was knowledgeable, funny and able to help us navigate in a way that maximized our time and experience. We would wholeheartedly suggest spending the extra money for the private early morning tour- skipping the horrible lines and minimizing wading through the masses on overcrowded group tours. We were able to see things that other tour guides don’t have access to and learned so much without feeling overwhelmed by trying to figure out what to see as there is SO much! We would absolutely book again with WIR and Barbara!

Without a tour guide, everything I saw would have little meaning to me. It was still crowded but less so than the crowds waiting to go in at the regular opening time. I would recommend doing this guided tour.

Worth the price! Great guide!
We had an archaeologist Ariana as our guide. Couldn\'t be anymore thankful to have her. She waa patient in every single bit of our question and equipped knowledge about the sculptures/history etc about the Vatican. i wish i could have her and the whole museum all to myself for a whole day! Tour was comfortably paced and generally covered quite some parts of the museum. Its impossible to finish everything even if its one full day but me and my husband was glad we did it coz we took away good knowledge at the end of the day. Thank you Ariana and WIR.
