My wife and I did the tour on Sept 18th. Our guide was Francessco. His English is good and easy to understand. We started in the Vatican Museums. Our guide was very informative and knowledgable. Rapheal's rooms were great, and the ability to get up close was awesome. The Sistine Chapel was the highlight as expected and our guide gave us good tips to avoid being moved on by the security guys. St Peters Basilica and square were also great attractions, but seemed to suffer in comparison to the Sistine Chapel. Skip the Line tickets are a must for this tour as the lines were already very long at opening time.
Great tour, wouldn't dream of exploring the Vatican Museum and St Peter's on our own. Just being able to skip the lines so worth the . Our guide Nicholas was so knowledgeable, brought art and history to life. If going to the Vatican, definitely take this tour.
Great end to our land trip before our cruise. Daniel the guide was amazing and very sensitive to my husband's health issues. I would tell anyone going to Rome to absolutely use the skip the line tours because they are worth every penny.
My wife and I did the tour on September 17th. Emma was our guide. Her English was good and easy to understand. She was very knowledgable and informative. The tour meeting point was easy to find. We started at the Colosseum and were glad to have the Skip the Line tickets as the queues were long with a wait time of 2-3 hours. The Colosseum was simply awesome! Great insight from our guide helped to piece it all together. The second half of the tour was to the Forum and Palatine Hill. Once again, very informative. The ruins are a lot less intact, but with the help of the guide, it was made a whole lot clearer. Overall, a great afternoon.
We loved this tour and being able to skip the line. So glad we planned ahead and bought this before we left for Rome. Worth it!
Fantastic tour, worth paying extra to skip the line. I would recommend going early to avoid the heat as much as possible. Great, informative tour guide. Thoroughly enjoyed the tour and would recommend to anyone.
This tour was a good way to skip the line to get in and through the gates. Inside the Vatican you are on your own so you have the freedom to see what you want at your own pace

A group of 9 took your skip the line Vatican tour and just loved it. Barbara was very knowledgeable and a good tour guide. Quite truthfully, I can't see why anyone wouldn't book these tours, rather than wait in those awful lines wrapped around the Vatican.
If your time is limited and you want to see more of Rome, I highly recommend the ski the line tours!
Skip the Line is the only way to go. Very good informative tour.
Skip the Line is a most. This was a perfect tour tour. We were able to see everything and our guide was great.
Breathtaking experience! Absolutely worth every dollar spent. Guides made it even more interesting for everyone including kids. And in this particular case skip the line is a must - the lines are ridiculously long there. Definitely recommend.
Our guide did a great job going through a lot of information and showing us the highlights of these amazing buildings. Skip the line is defiantly worth it, as the lines were very long at 8 am. Having someone guide you through a large area of art and history is definitely the way to go.
Being able to skip the line and view the museums at our leisure was will worth any inconveniences others have mentioned. Seeing one of world's most incredible art collections deserves a 5 star rating.

Great tour. Knowledgeable guide. Nice to skip the lines.
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.
Skip the Line was great. We walked right in and got started. Our tour guide was very informative and interesting. There is a lot of walking but so work it to see the Sistine Chapel.
Great guide Perfect English ! good time keeping
Worth paying to skip the lines
Would recommend going to top of cupola for views
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.
Having seen the regular lines for most of the attractions in Rome I have become a believer in the 'Skip the Line' tours. Worth every penny. Guides were very knowledgeable and pointed out details we would otherwise have missed.
Definitely have become a fan of the 'Skip the Line' tours...worth every penny especially if time is short.
Great value for money. The best of all our tours. The guide was amazing with her knowledge and made it all so very interesting with her casual, conversational manner. Skip the Line is a must as the lines were vast. A 'must do' tour!!
When we got to the museum entrance and saw the lines, we were daunted. But then Nina just walked us up to a guard and we went right on in, so we really did get to skip the line. It was great! Nina Mama Bear was so cute and funny. We learned a lot from her.
Fantastic tour and an extremely knowledgeable tour guide. It was a fun, interesting and engaging tour. And even though the lines were long because the crowds were at peak tour season, the skip the line was absolutely worth it.
Picture perfect day for us at the Colosseum! Fascinating journey back in time as you climb the steps and find yourself engulfed by the massive stadium. Lots to learn and the guide was fantastic. She was engaging and clearly LOVED her job sharing her knowledge of the Roman empire with us as we walked through the ruins. Glad we purchased the Skip the Line.....best way to learn about Rome.
Our guide had great insight into the Vatican Museum, St. Peter's Basilica and the Sistine Chapel. It was wonderful to be able to skip the lines and make the most of our time in Rome. The 3 other basilicas we visited in the afternoon were also wonderful to see and learn about. The day was well spent and a memorable part of our stay in Rome.
