If you are pressed for time on your trip this is definitely the way ! Skipping the line and streamlining your way thru the vatican and basilica is the way to go. Rome is EXTREMELY crowded in the summer and combine that with heat you do not want to be standing on line for hours no exaggeration. Having said that our guide was knowledgable , pleasant and patient . Giving excellent explanations and time for questions along the way. There is also plenty of time after your guide leaves you to go back at your own pace as well.
This was a fabulous not to missed trip, my only wish is that we could stay longer. The views from Anna Capri are breathtaking and the blue grotto is a special place and a big part of the culture of Capri. Most of the men are second and third generation family members that have been working the grotto for many years. The one thing I would do differently is skip the provided lunch and pick something up on the go so you have a little more time to walk thru the shops . The guides were very helpful and really knew how to navigate the system. Also don't book any thing the evening you return the traffic is very unpredictable
