It was awesome getting through before the crowd. The line to get in was VERY long for those not on the tour. The guide was very knowledgable.

I am a skeptic and a hard sell. I also never write reviews. But this tour was the highlight of my trip to Rome. The staff were surprisingly genuine and enthusiastic, warm and kind, as well as extremely helpful, which is not typical in a big city or when on the tourist track. The tour was informative and fascinating and 100% worth it to go early. I stayed around and realized what an amazingly different experience it was surrounded by the mobs later on. I was still jetlagged and disoriented, and after the tour two staff on a break (not even from my tour), helped me sort out some later travel plans by phone since I don't speak Italian. If the early tour doesn't work out, the company is still great.

Best way to see the Sistine Chapel and museums.My wife and I dragged our 16yr old daughter out of bed for the tour.Our guide, Paula, was informative and pleasant.To walk into the chapel with only our small group of maybe 25 people was amazing.the three of us then had the museums all to ourselves.

This was a terrific way to enjoy the Sistine Chapel, and beat the crowds. On two previous occasions, we have visited the Vatican Museum, spent hours... those tours ended up in the Sistine Chapel - with HOARDS of others - so crowded that you could not enjoy the splendid room - the details, the artistry.... THIS IS THE WAY TO GO!

Perfect experience. Directly to the Sistine Chapel with time to visit and reflect. After we headed to museums and people were really just starting to arrive so we still had a great time viewing before the museum filled up. We lingered so long that St. Peter's was packed when we got there but the good thing is with this entry there was no waiting on the long line to enter St. Peter's! Best money spent in Rome as far as we are concerned!

Very glad we did the early entrance. Viator was professional, informative and early at our meeting. I was very pleased that the tour guide was respectful of the Sistine chapel "silence" rule, there were some guides talking inside the chapel. It was nice our guide gave us all the history before we entered so we could just take everything in at our own pace. If you want to experience the Sistine chapel, not just see it, then this is for you.

Sistine Chapel was out of this world! It was brilliant as there were no crowds. Another tour that I would recommend. Would definitely use Viator again as organised and efficient. Thanks again for making our City break pleasant and hassle free.

We are SO pleased we booked this tour. Our group of 14 people was the first in through the doors of the Vatican and we walked straight to the Sistine Chapel. Our guide told us what we were looking at on the way but we did not stop. We were the only ones in the chapel for about fifteen minutes. It was an amazing feeling and an awesome sight of course. After about 30 mins our guide left us and we wandered around for a couple of hours. When we went back through the chapel again to get to the church the chapel was completely full of people and it was not nearly as special. We needed to be back at our hotel at midday to meet our guide to go on a cruise departing from Rome so only had the morning for this tour. Even though we have done so much since that day we still remark how special it was to be the only ones in the chapel. So amazing. An absolute must when in Rome.

Fabulous opportunity to access the chapel early with only a few people inside. We'll worth the extra money spent and also we enjoyed the flexibility of roaming around the museums at our own pace.

The only way to see the Sistine Chapel is to do the early access tour and enjoy the beauty without all the crowds.

wonderful!!!! we were able to see the sistine chapel almost empty -- a vast difference than the last time when we were crammed in like sardines. also, the guided part was so leisurely because of the lack of crowds that it was a pleasure and we saw so much more. lastly, we were able to do the vatican museum on our own and at our own pace . the only draw back was that it was a hassle to go back and get an audio guide for the museum. we should have had a chance to do it at the beginning of the tour -- just a suggestion.
