Overall rating: 10/10

Our guide was very knowledgeable and detail-oriented. Got to learn more about the symbolism inside of the dome, look at the major works inside (+great explanation), walk up the stairs to the top and have full-overview of the city skyline, as well as the underground floor. The whole tour took 3 hours, however, if you are booking multiple Vatican tours for the same day, make sure to have 1.5-2 hours between the sessions, otherwise might get a bit overwhelming:)
