Skip the Line: Vatican Museums Small-Group Tour including Sistine Chapel and St Peter's Basilica

Rome, Italy

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

We had a very good guide. She was knowledgeable and tried to make the tour interesting for everyone. She pointed out many things that we would not have been able to see or appreciate on our own. Being able to skip the long line was fantastic. The visit to the Sistine Chapel was, in a way, disappointing because of the crowds.

My Review

I truly enjoyed this tour. We had the opportunity to try great food and learn about the history of the city in a relaxing atmosphere. The guide, Kenny, was incredible: smart, fun, considerate. He did everything possible to make the experience memorable and he was very successful. I especially enjoyed our visit to the market and see how he interacted with the locals. This was the best tour we took in a three-week vacation in Italy.

My Review

This tour was not what I had expected at all. We were supposed to arrive at our meeting place at 7:30. We waited for a a while and then were told to get on a bus. (There were two buses). The other bus left almost immediately, but we had to wait some more. We were never told why. On the way, our guide was very concerned about the heavy traffic and told us he doubted we could get in. He gave us our tickets, and the driver parked the bus as close to St. Peter's as he could. We had to walk to the Square with the guide. When we finally arrived, the gates to the area where the chairs are was closed and many, many people were standing, trying to get a spot. In short, a ticket does not guarantee anything. There were many people with tickets in the area where we were. We had to stand for two hours. What I disliked the most was the fact that our guide discouraged us from returning to the pick up place by bus because he said it would be very difficult to meet because of the crowds. He gave instructions where to meet and left. At the end, we walked by the place he had chosen and in fact he was there, but we chose to walk instead. I believe it would have been better for us to start earlier and take a taxi.
