Fantastic! Our guide, Darius (?) was perfection - immaculate English, incredible depth of knowledge as an art historian, timed everything just right, gave tips on other places to visit that we're really worthwhile, really sweet to the kids and an obviously lovely person. All that topped by his beautiful smile...
Still pretty crowded in places and quite tiring so wear good shoes as there is a lot of ground covered and don't eat at the ristorante directly opposite the exit - very ordinary food and ask the prices first!

The best way to see the Vatican is at night. They are letting so many people in during the day, I can not imagine what it would be like. Talking to others who did see it during the day, this night tour was the far better experience. Also, It allows for more time to see other things in Rome during the day that are closed in the evening. We enjoyed our guide. She made every effort to help out the group in any way she could.

This tour was great. Our guide had a degree in art history in addition to being a certified tour guide (which is a difficult certification to obtain in Italy). We appreciated her knowledge and passion for this beautiful place. I would strongly recommend anyone visiting Rome to take this tour. If you are not in with a tour group you have to wait in line for hours in the sun and then walk shoulder to shoulder with thousands of other people through the museums. Even skipping the line the crowds are unbearable. With this tour we often were the only people in the hallways. We could get good pictures, and appreciate the art. Also, our guide was excellent. Previously I had toured the museums but on this tour we went through the Pope's apartments. They are no longer furnished, but the walls and the stories are stunning. The disadvantage to the night time tour is that you don't get to skip the cue for St. Peters (go around 5:00 and you'll get right in) and a second disadvantage is that the Sistine Chapel is dimly lit so it was harder to appreciate. There is nothing in the world like the Vatican. I'm confident that this tour is the best way to see it.

We thoroughly enjoyed the tour which had a good guide. The reduced amount of people was also welcome allowing better views and more time when needed.

Although we took the Friday Night tour it was extremely crowded. Our guide was phenomenal. She made sure we saw all there was to see.

The tour guide had PHD! Vatican at night is charming, a totally different experience. The tour was around 3 hours and the best thing about it is that it is not as crowded as the morning, so you can enjoy it at your own pace and hear the tour guide clearly.

The tour was great! I did not know there was other stuff besides the Sistine Chapel to see at the Vatican. I did tour the Vatican 2 years ago but only toured the Cathedral. This was a very good tour.
