Best tour to do! You get to see the Sistine chapel before the general public. We got a lot of information from our guide, she was very nice and very knowledgeable. A must do to get avoid the crowds.

Highly recommend this tour. It was great to be in the Sistine Chapel with only a few people. Our guide was Excellent. Made the visit both interesting and enjoyable. Only thing I would add to visit is the opportunity to get your passport stamped before tickets are handed out. Passports could be stamped if the tour guide pre arranged with the Vatican, and as only a few people on tour, passports could be done quickly. Then on to the Sistine Chapel.

So worth the early morning wake up! This is an early morning to get up and to the meting point but so worth it to get into the Vatican and Sistine Chapel before the crowds. We spent a lot of time in the chapel before moving on to the rest of the Vatican. Our guide was great and very informative. We enjoyed this tour very much!

This was worth it mainly to get in to the Sistine Chapel early and with a lot less people than at other times. Our tour guide was good and quite enthusiastic. She gave us some good insights before we got into the Sistine so we knew what to look for when we were there.

Absolutely wonderful. We were the first tour group in the museum. Francesca was great! She taught us so much in a short time. We walked thru the museum and when we got to the Sistine Chapel, there were only about 30 people in the chapel. We spent 45 minutes in the Sistine Chapel. We had 17 in our group. We took the tour on October 13, 2014. When we walked out to St. Peter's Square, we couldn't believe the long lines to get in. We highly recommend this tour!

Everything about this tour was remarkable. We met early, it was still kind of dark, but there were no safety concerns. We were the second group admitted, had the beautiful Sistine Chapel all to ourselves We took a seat on the periphery and, when the massive amounts of people entered, we were able to keep our seats and review the ceiling. The tour guide told us to take the left door leading out of the Chapel; it let us to the Vatican Museum to tour at our leisure and ability to re-enter the Sistine. So glad we heard about your company from friends.

We had a great tour director, who got us into the Sistene Chapel with no more than 50 people in the Chapel. This made our visit fantastic.

So nice to see without the crowds!!! Worth going early, plus you are in the Basilica way before the real huge crowds arrive.

Fabulous tour!!! (Our guide was a French Lady but I cannot remember her name!) very informative and an absolute must to avoid the queues and to enhance the experience. Well worth the price and early morning start. My only criticism is that it was a bit chaotic when the groups were being arranged at the meeting place at the bottom of the steps (and I could not see 'Viator' anywhere so a bit confusing). I would recommend this tour for sure!
