great tour of the can't miss Vatican sites. No waiting in lines, the guide was clear and knowledgeable and answered our questions
Great tour through the Vatican Museum, Sistine Chapel and St Peter's! Guide was very pleasant and easy to hear and understand. Highly recommend this tour.
Guide was thoroughly experienced as we toured through the vatican,sisten chapel
and gave us all ancient history.We would highly recommend this tour to our friends
who may wish to visit Rome
Great experience. Worth getting up very early even with the kids to have this special tour. We got lucky with our tour guide who is studying art and anthropology. She made the Vatican come alive for all of us.
Priscilla was a terrific tour guide, providing thoughtful insights about the art, architecture and history of the Vatican. I overheard some other guides really over dramatizing the history and art, while our guide was very engaging but without the over-the-top drama. The pace was reasonable and she took care to keep our group of 20 together. Unfortunately there was no appropriate opportunity to give really thank her... we departed in front of St Peter's tomb!
Excellent breakfast no problems, hard to beat the crowds at Vatican, but guide did pretty well
Loved this tour. Our guide Francesca was very knowledgeable about the Vatican museum, the Sistine chapel and the Basilica. We learned so much from her. She was very enthusiastic and made it an enjoyable 3 hours.
Was clear on her instructions and we always knew when and where we could take our photos. We would recommend this tour!
Simply fantastic!! It was a very popular day at the Vatican, but our guide was so patient and kept track of all of us. She provided excellent information and shepherded us through the museums, Sistine Chapel and Basillica - we all thoroughly enjoyed the day and I'd highly recommend it to anyone considering going to the Vatican. We didn't wait in any lineups at all!!!!

After seeing the crowds, we cannot imagine visiting the Vatican any other way than with a small group tour. Our guide, Stefana, was very knowledgeable and made this tour an educational experience.
Withe the guid that is provided, the experience through the vatican has been interest provoking!
however, make sure that you have noted the meet up destination!
I did not know that I had booked a private tour but I think this is the only way to tour the Vatican. Our guide took the time to explain everything prior to showing it to us. Private tour was not much more money but enhanced the experience 100.
The vatican is always crowded and having a good guide helps you make sense of what you are looking at, plus you skip all the long lines to get in.
An absolute must see, everything we expected to see and more. Since we were trying to see both the Vatican and the Coliseum in one day, our Driver Luca who was a Amazing recommended that we visit the Coliseum in the AM and the Vatican in the afternoon to avoid the crowds, he made a few calls and had our itinerary rescheduled in minutes without any added costs.

We loved our skip the line Vatican tour. Had a great experience. Would definitely recommend and do it all over again if we had the chance. It was my husband and I's first trip to Rome we wanted to see both the Vatican and the Colosseum in one day. It would not have been possible had we had to wait in the mile long line at the Vatican.
Great walking tour! Sev was really awesome, funny, and very knowledgeable. So much I didn't know about the Vatican and Sistine Chapel. If you can get Sev, ask to be in his group.
The best way to see the Vatican, I would highly recommend that you book this tour and skip queues, the tour guide was really knowledgable, and it saves a long 2 hour wait..
OMG, if you want to be wowed, you have to go to the vatican. We started this tour with the visit of the museum which took about 2 hours but was breathtaking. Our guide was very good and knowledgeable. She took her time explaining every paintings or sculptures we stopped to admire. The name of this tour can be a bit misleading as you may think you will visit 4 places but the fact is that the Raphael's Room is in the museum so we see it as you visit the museum. Unfortunately for us, St Peter's had had a mass in the morning so we were not allow to visit until they re-opened the door later in the afternoon. But the visit of the Basilica is free so we went back the next day and I assure you, this is something you want to see. This tour was so beautiful that there are no words to express how amazed and awed we were.
Tour was great. Local guide was great and very knowledgeable about the history of the Vatican. Worth the price of admission just to avoid the lines.

Although I am unable to remember our tour guide's name she was wonderful. She explained everything in detail and made the Vatican visit the most enjoyable excursion. If we didn't have a guide, we would not have understood how each piece of artwork, rugs, statues etc. related to religion and history. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone visiting Rome as it was the highlight of our trip.
Our guide had a vast knowledge of the art in the Vatican museums. Only down side is St Peters was closed when we were there for a special ceremony so we didn't get to see it. Not the tour's fault though. We did get to take our time in the Sistine Chap though and if you are patient, can even get a seat for more enjoyable viewing.
Very good. Meeting location was well explained. We were placed in groups and our Vatican guide met us and took us through. Excellent guide - very knowledgeable. Avoided lines.
The Vatican was amazing and we are so glad that we signed up for Skip the Line. Our tour guide, Mary Stella, was so full of life and informative. She was so passionate about her job and went the extra mile in her explanations.
Nicely organized and interesting tour. Skipping the line is definitely a time-saver, and the guide did a great job covering the highlights of the Vatican Museum, Sistine Chapel, and St. Peter's. Highly recommended!
This is the best way to see the Vatican, hands down! Wonderful tour and our guide Sarafina was terrific! Her expansive knowledge of the Vatican was obvious.
While Vatican City was mobbed for our tour, and some in our group liked to get lost, the tour guide did a great job.
