Cover your knees and shoulders, there's no need to dress like the people who live in Vatican City, just avoid short pants, dresses and tank tops.

Q: What are the chances my tour will be canceled or the Vatican will close something.
A: We run the tour rain or shine all year round. Although it is rare, sometimes part of the Vatican City closes for special religious events. If an area normally covered on a tour is closed, our guide will still provide explanations of the closed areas from outside. Plus, we will show you an extra site or gallery to compensate.

A: If you have any doubts about your mobility, this is your best bet for a Vatican tour. Private Vatican tours are more easily customized to the needs of people with reduced mobility.

Our guide was an expert regarding everything Vatican, Italian, and Roman. I plan on booking with the Tour Guy during our next European trip.
Splurge for the Private Tour
I was with my husband so was only two of us and we did the morning private tour with Leah of the Vatican. She was truly amazing and explained everything great, most of all she got us through without having to wait any lines before the loads of people got there. On our way back we got to see what we would’ve had to go through if we had not done the private tour and trust me splurge on the private tour. The Roman guy is A reliable and wonderful company I truly enjoyed the tour. These people know what they’re doing.
Unbelievable Worth It!
Our Roman Guy tour guide, Fabiola, was FABULOUS! Her high level knowledge of art and history of the Vatican museums, Sistine Chapel and St.Peter's Basilica was brought to life with her explanations, passion and personality. For our family tour, we spent a little extra money on a private Roman Guy tour to skip the line and ditch the headset - it was worth every dollar/euro. Super tour; I highly recommend our guide and this tour to others. PS: Plan to visit in January or February when there are no crowds and you can actually enjoy all the wonders in Roma!
