This is a must if you want to see the Vatican Museums and Sistine Chapel and St Peter's Basilica without standing in line for hours. This tour took us too areas in the Vatican Museums where upon my previous visits without a tour, I was not provided access. It was nice to have our guide explain to us what we were looking at. Being in a small group was great!

Tour leader was very knowledgeable about the history and English was very good. Meeting location was good and on-time to start. Headphones and receiver worked well and leader had couple of back-up receivers for those that had problem. This is way to go, especially in the busy season and when it so hot outside.

great tour - enabled us to see some highlights of the Vatican museum before heading onto St Peter's. Our tour guide was a qualified art historian - so it was particularly interesting for us to have some context and explanation about the Sistine Chapel prior to entering so that we knew some things to look out for. Likewise it was great to get some commentary as we moved through the Vatican museum - including the Raphael's rooms.

OUTSTANDING......From the moment we were greeted at our meeting point until our final goodbye.
This is really worth paying extra ...only 12 people in our tour and not a single queue!
So well handled and efficient.
Our guide Francesca was excellent with terrific knowledge and enthusiasm.

This was our first tour using the earpieces and we never missed a word despite being surrounded by other large groups.

I CAN HEARTILY RECCOMEND THIS TOUR

We had the most amazing tour guide, Maria Rosaria, who took us expertly through the Vatican Museum, the Sistine Chapel and St. Peter's Basilica. She was so knowledgeable and friendly, and made everything very accessible. Seeing these parts of the Vatican in a group of only 12 people - before most of the crowds came in - was incredible. We had to get up very early to make this work, but it was well worth it.

This small group tour is well worth the small investment and makes for an easy, informed and well organized tour of the Vatican. The tour guide added quite a bit of extra information that was very insightful and added to the experience. This is the only way to tour the awe inspiring Vatican.

It was a fantastic tour! Even though we had been in St. Peter's Basilica before, this tour was terrific. The tour includes the Sistine Chapel and the Vatican Museums. Our guide was very knowledgeable, answered our questions, skipped the line and got right in! We were first in Vatican City in the early 90's. We have been there several times since and tried to stand in line to tour the Basilica. We gave up each time. I am so happy that I booked this tour in advance and it was even more than I had expected. Book a tour - you won't be disappointed!

Best way to see the Vatican. Our guide, Emma?, was highly educated and extremely pleasant. She could sort out what was important to see as well as explain the historical and creative highlights that we should know about. Skip the line is the only way to go.....we would have spent half the day just waiting for tickets!

This is the only way to go! I can't imagine standing in the line to enter the Vatican! The crowds were crazy! The small group gave ample time to maneuver through the crowds and touch on the highlights with the ability to ask questions. Our guide was fantastic!
