I enjoyed it even if too many people in the Vatican Museums.
It is so nice to skip the line even if we have to wait for the staff buy the tickets about 7 minutes then, we scan the ticket and enter the Museums and we are free to go anywhere we like.
I recommend this tickets to people who want to visit the Museums, otherwise, we have to wait for a long time to just buy a ticket!! The thousands tourists there!

This tour was fantastic! Our guide Francesca was so knowledgable and passionate about the Vatican museums it really brought it alive for us. The museums were fascinating and as its so busy we felt we would have missed a lot without her, we learnt so much. As for the Sistine Chapel -wow!!!
Sara, our tour guide, was fantastic! She was very knowledgeable! Our tour started early which gave us a chance to see the Vatican and other places before the crowd got too bad. The start of the tour was very easy to find from the company's emailed info when we booked.Would highly recommend it to everyone!
Our tour guide Nichola/Nicholai was exceptional in his knowledge and passionate in his delivery of the history of the Vatican tour We very much enjoyed the whole experience The scottish Ladies
Our tour was great, but don't go on Wednesday, as we did. The Pope has an audience in St. Peter's Square on that day, so you spend more time at the Vatican. By the time you get to the Sistine Chapel, it is open to the public. So much for the private, quiet experience in the Sistine Chapel.
A unique and wonderful experience visiting St Peter's Basilica and the Vatican Museum.
Excellent tour guides
We were very pleased with our decision to book this tour. The Vatican is so vast and is utter chaos in terms of the number of visitors that you really do need a guide to get through it. We got so much more out of our visit with an experienced guide than we could have had we attempted it on our own. Our guide, Helena, was wonderful and got us to all the highlights without ever seeming rushed. Beware of the birds on the steps of the museum, I got baptized just before we met the tour! Apparently, it happens quite frequently!
Really informative tour of the Vatican with fun background information. Would recommend.
This is the most efficient way to see the Vatican. You are able to communicate effectively with the guide in a small group in spite of the fact that there is no getting around the crowds in the museums and St Peter's Basilica. We were able to walk through the 4 Holy Doors in Rome in this Year of Mercy as a part of this tour. A wonderful experience.

The guide GiGi was fantastic, the whole tour was informative ans worth every penny. Getting up early was worth it to have breakfast in the Vatican and to view most of it without crowds
Well organised and very motivated staff. In the morning Gloria did not save efforts in showing us all she knew about the Vatican. In the afternoon it was a pleasure having Antonella who had to deal with difficult situations but managed to of the miracle.

A great tour - fantastic way to see the Vatican Gardens.
Sarah was our guide.
Our group of 4 thought she gave us an excellent tour of the Vatican, very well informed. Thoroughly enjoyed.
Only down side was crowds of people.
Would I go again, absolutely well worth the money, we cant recommend this tour highly enough. if you get the chance go for it.
Very interesting tour, with a lovely lady, who had a great depth of knowledge of the Vatican. Thoroughly enjoyed this tour,
A wonderful experience just not long enough to absorb the wonderful treasures inside the Vatican.
An excellent tour with an excellent guide - Barbara. Although an early start the Vatican was still very busy so well worth joining a small group.
our tour of Vatican was very good really enjoyed it our guide Seriana was very interesting and helpful
Sara was a great tour guide! She directed us skillfully through all the hustle and bustle of a busy day at the Vatican! She really knew her stuff, very friendly and informative. We learned a lot and had a great experience!
This tour was great! Definitely worth the money as there was a very large line to get in. The history and seeing the Sistine Chapel was very interesting. In addition, the grounds were amazing to view. The tour guide was very informative about Vatican City and answered all of our questions about Vatican City.
The only con I had is that there were quite a number of tour groups that went and it wasn't peak season - just approaching it. This made many hallways very crowded.
I will make this clear for future goers: If you book this on any religious holiday i.e. Easter, Christmas, you WILL miss St. Peter's Basilica. I knew this well before my trip since I went over the Easter weekend. However, I didn't mind it.
Great tour, guide was extremely knowledgeable about all of Vatican. Helped bring the different statues and paintings to life and gave you a glimpse of the backstory of the different things. Would definitely recommend the early tours as the security lines get overwhelming as the day goes on.
We enjoyed the tour immensely, Maria was extremely knowledgeable and also very funny. She told us a lot about the history of the artworks and of the artists too.The sights in the Vatican are incredible, not to be missed.
Excellent tour and an amazing Tour Guide. This is a must-take tour as the lines for the Vatican were hours long since it is a jubilee year. Our tour guide was a blonde gal from America with an Art History degree who had married an Italian after studying in Italy. Her depth of knowledge on all things in the vatican museum was astounding. This was a once in a lifetime opportunity to see the vatican and our guide made the experience that much better. She kept us on schedule, ensured we all got in close to see the best artifacts, gave us great details on each exhibit, and even gave us recommendations on what to do outside of the vatican and around Rome. I would have taken this tour to see the Sistine Chapel ceiling alone it was so amazing! One of the best tours of my trip for sure!
This tour is highly recommended because of our guide, Tiffany M. She was extremely knowledgeable, engaging and charming: we learnt a lot, especially about art and architecture, which she correctly assessed were our main interests. We enjoyed walking around the Vatican for over four hours in spite of the crowds and noise because of Tiffany's attention to detail and good humour. She managed not to lose any of our small group in the crush and found ways of shortening the walking distances for one or two older, less mobile members. This general excellence was no doubt a result of Tiffanys many years of experience as a Vatican Guide. But the winning feature was her engaging and responsive personality which, in our even longer experience as art tourists, is not to be found in every guide. Tiffany is simply tip-top!
Absolutely fantastic. Our guide Nicolas as wonderful. The breakfast was also very, very good. Worth the money. We had the Vatican to ourselves for the first hour or so. It was great. Nicolas took us to areas that I am sure if you are on your own, you will not find.
