This Vatican tour Sistine Chapel, Vatican Museum and St. Peters was well worth the expense! A small group with expert guide who was very passionate about the Vaticans history and treasures. We started early and the museum was still very crowded but we got to move quickly through with no waiting. We loved hearing all about the Sistine Chapel and Michelangelo with pictures and great stories sitting out in the courtyard. Once we got in the Sistine Chapel where there was no talking allowed we knew what to look for and all about the history of the frescos. This type of tour was so beneficial to a first time visit to the Vatican. When we were finished with our tour mid-day. The lines to start the tours were very, very long and hot! We strongly recommend this tour you will not be disappointed!
Elisabetta was the best!! She was very knowledgeable and I learned so many interesting things on this tour! I also appreciated the small group size. Overall it was a great experience, highly recommended!!
The tour was great, Sev was funny, informative, and well worth the money!
Very enjoyable tour of the Vatican and it is imperative that you take a skip the lines tour as the lines are humongous. I could not imagine trying to see all the sights on my own.
Despite the June crowds it was an excellent tour. Emma and David were very knowledgeable.
Rachel, you rock! This was one of the best tours we had in Italy. We learned so much about the vatican, it was really interesting, even to our 12 year old! Unfortunately, St. Peters was closed that day, but we were offered a free pass to come back the next day.
Fantastic tour, we had a better experience then with a private guide three years ago for 1/4 the cost. Our group passed a few hundred in line and started our tour within 10 minutes.

This tour was amazing and very informative thanks to our tour guide! Our tour begin at 8:10am, we didn't wait long to enter, and by passed lines already forming outside the museum. I would definitely recommend this tour everyone traveling to the Vatican.
Our guide Nichola was wonderful. Knowledgable, and very animated. We thoroughly enjoyed the tour. We were glad we took the small group tour, very intimate, and easy to hear everything. Very, very worth the extra cost. Nicola was absolutely wonderful.
Really enjoyed the tour. City Wonders did an excellent job. Patrizia's knowledge and language skills were excellent. It was also very nice to have the audio connection. The City Wonders tours were well planned and organized and we liked the small group format.
Skip the line is not just a catch phrase, we went right in the Vatican with minimal wait. Guide was excellent. Transportation was clean and comfortable.
fantastic tour, breathtaking history, guide informative, clear, and no queuing. 10/10
Really good interesting tour from a really good tour guide called Emma
It was great skipping the line and hitting the hilights. The museum can get so overwhelming otherwise.
I would highly recommend it
Definitely need this tour. Lines would have been insane without it! Our guide was funny and very informative.
Even with the early morning start we still encountered large crowds at the Vatican and so I would recommend this tour so you can pass the extensive queues and move through the galleries with ease.
Our guide was very good and, even though I knew a vast amount of history associated with the Vatican, she was still able to give me information that I did not know. An excellent tour.
Brilliantly organised. Our guide was friendly and extremely knowledgable. We didn't have to wait or queue. Will definitely use Viator again.
The lines are incredibly L.O.N.G.....why waste valuable time waiting when you can get 'right in' and tour. I recommend early morning first thing. Guide is full of knowledge and information. Group is small and never rushed. Totally worth the money!!!
Wow! Tour guide was amazing for depth and breadth of knowledge. Got us through the big crowds with finesse. This was the best way too see all the most sought after sights and interest items quickly. There is never enough time to see everything, but I would recommend this tour to meddle it easy.
Great tour. Small group-12 people, great guide, lots of information. And the
Best part was no line except for brief security check. Schedule early in the day.
Great way to tour the Vatican museums. Small size of group was a plus as was the early/skip the lines access. We covered a significant amount of ground but also had time to pause enjoy all the art work. Excellent tour guide.

The line we skipped was about a mile long! A great guide who did not rush us and was full of information. I felt sorry for the thousands in the lines. We walked right in everywhere.
