The artwork and sculptures in the Vatican Museum are breathtaking such amazing works of art. As we walked with our guide to get in the museum, I couldn't believe the line waiting to purchase tickets and get in no way would I have waited in that line. This purchase is a must!

Excellent tour guide who knew history and presented very well. One of our companion was not able to walk and climb on that day and they readily gave the refund for him.

This was so helpful! The lines were 3 hours long the day we visited the Vatican, and the weather was supremely hot. We are so grateful we found Viator and bought the skip the line tickets!

Excellent tour, so glad we opted to do this because we learned many interesting things, and if we had done independently we would had a very long wait in line.

Was exactly as advertised. Meeting point was easy. The guide walked us in to the Vatican gave us out tickets and we were on our way.

Worth it! Avoid 2 hour plus lines. There was a heat wave when we were there, so not only was it hot outside, it was also stifling inside the museum. You can quickly get to the Sistine Chapel if that is the main purpose of your trip. Keep in mind, you must exit the museum shortly after you visit the Chapel.

Very easy to find the ticket distributors. They walk you straight to the ticket vendor, give you your ticket and you're done within 15 minutes. Highly recommend them.

It took quite some time to get in even with this ticket. First waiting at the meeting point and then in the skip the line line. However, we got to wait in the shade and this specific day the ordinary line was insanely long and the weather very hot, so we were very happy for our skip the line tickets.

Had a terrific time. Our tour of the Vatican etc. was great and so was our guide from Wonder tours David.
It was over the top and more than 5 stars.

After seeing the queue we could have ended up waiting in this ticket was well worth while! Meeting point is very easy to find, just make sure you're outside the entrance to the museums not st Peter's Basilica just follow the walls to the Vatican around the right side of the basilica. We walked straight in, no queuing at all. We choose the option without a tour guide, the museums have lots of information plaques next to each exhibit so didn't find this a problem and there are audio guides you can hire once inside. Definitely recommend this is you're going peak season like we did and do not wish to be waiting in 2/3 hour long queues in the midday heat it was almost 40 degrees when we were there!

This is a good way to get an overview of a massive museum. You won't see everything, but that's the point. There is too much to see in a morning. But we some some amazing art, learned some interesting background, and could ask lots of questions. Now, I could go back and do my own thing.

Skipping the ticket queue is a must! Waiting in the unending line is to be avoided at all costs. BUT, if there is a more efficient way to see the museums once inside, opt for it.....the crush of visitors in the museums doesn't spoil the trip but it does make it difficult, especially if travelling with children or an older adult. The number of visitors to the museums is almost impossible to imagine until you're there.

The tour guide was very good and helpful. He had a very full knowledge of the site and we all liked the time there.

i have to say that we are not group tour kind of people but felt we would benefit from a guide for something so complicated as the vatican - boy were we right! Shannon our guide was incredible. She had knowledge of so much, had a great personality and was very patient with us. Not too mention how happy we were to skip the line so quickly while the people in the kilometre long line up sweltered in the sun.

A wonderful introduction to the treasures of the Vatican. Our guide was extremely helpful in selecting the items to be observed in the midst of a very large summer crowd. Knowledgeable and quick on his feet, he got us through with all the boxes checked.

A better definition of the meeting point for tour initiation would be appreciated - directions a bit iffy!

The tour was amazing! It was a very easy process meeting the agent and entering the Vatican museum. It was worth the tour for skipping the lines!
