Tour Description

Our bespoke private tours are the most premium experience we offer. From those with young kids who want a fun experience, to those who are looking for something heavy on the detail – each private tour is individually catered to your needs. Crowd-free, queue-free and stress-free, these tours are also ideal for those with mobility issues, who may struggle to keep up with a normal-sized group. After you book, we’ll be in touch to take note of your requirements so we can begin designing the perfect tour for you.

As the spiritual home to over 1.6 billion Catholic’s worldwide, the Vatican City can be something of a nightmare get into – with queues lasting for hours on end. But our Vatican, Sistine Chapel & St Peter’s Basilica tour utilises premium skip-the-line tickets – allowing us to breeze past the crowds and dig right in.

We’ll begin at the Vatican Museum, which – as the primary archive of the world’s largest religion – is a bit like a city, within a city, within a city. It has over 1000 rooms covering four millennia, meaning those without visiting unaided often find it a tad confusing. But our guides have crafted a custom route through the museum that packs in all the best bits without leaving you lost for hours in its labyrinthine corridors.

We’ll then head to perhaps the most famous part of the Holy city – the Sistine Chapel. It’s from this fabled building that the mysterious white smoke rises upon the selection of a new pope. And it’s also the home of Michelangelo’s masterpiece ‘The Last Judgement’. Walking through here – in silence, as the laws state – is a truly magical experience.

Our final stop is St Peter’s Basilica. Lauded as the pinnacle of Renaissance architecture, this fascinating structure towers above the city and is perhaps the most recognisable dome in Italy. As a separate attraction within the Vatican, it often attracts huge queues – but we will again be using skip-the-line tickets allowing us to enter directly.

We’ll finish in the central square, where you can wander into nearby Gianicolo for a bite to eat, or head back across the river towards Central Roma for some more sightseeing

This route covers about 2 kilometres in total and is conducted at a leisurely pace that is suitable for all. The tour duration is around 2.5 hours.
