We did the early morning Vatican tour with Walks Inside Rome. Our guide, Lea, was great. She took time to learn our interests (geology for my daughter) and pointed out items that spoke to that interest. She was easy to understand and speak with and our tour flowed smoothly

You'll be in line for HOURS trying to access both of these places, just to save money, but the information you get and the special accesses are 100000% worth the price. Best money I spent the whole trip. My only issue was finding the tour guide in the morning - it's run by a

they give you a discount on Wednesdays--I should have known something was up. You don't see the basilica--without question the highlight of the Vatican. The pope holds a huge outdoor mass there every Wednesday and is not part of the tour. We had to go back at the end of the day

I'm afraid you are mistaken. We do not run Early Morning Vatican tours on Wednesday for the exact reason that Saint Peter's Basilica is closed to the public. It must be that you have confused us with one of our competitors. Coud you check this is the case -- and that you did not book your tour through 'Walks Inside Rome'? Grazie!
