I have nothing but praise for the Exclusive Breakfast at the Vatican with Early Access. This was a present for my son's 34 th birthday. To start the morning having breakfast in the Courtyard of the Vatican, priceless. The buffet was fabulous with every breakfast food imaginable including fresh pastries, eggs, fruit, meats, juices, coffee, and even cappuccino and other special drinks. Rachel was an exciting tour guide who led us into the Vatican with so many intriguing facts she brought the history alive. It was so nice to tour the Vatican without the crowds. Would not hesitate to book this tour again. It's the only way to truly experience the Vatican.

Early access is the way to go! There are a few other similar tours at the same time, but the people are NOTHING like when the doors open. We had incredible access to the Vatican Museums and the Sistine Chapel, with the ability to go anywhere and see anything. Both were breathtaking. By the time we reached St. Peter's, the doors had just opened to the general public, and we got a small taste of what our tour could have been like with crowds. We were so glad we did this tour with Early Access!

This tour was definitely worth the cost and then some. I was somewhat skeptical of both getting up that early and the price per person, but my wife convinced me to do it. It was quick and easy to cab to the entrance for the early arrival. We had Rachel -- who was by far the best of all the tour guides we had on our 17-day trip through Italy. She was superb and even recommended other places we might visit on our final day in Rome the next day.

The breakfast was great -- "American" style which is a nice break from eating croissants every day. It is hard to explain how cool it is to be alone inside the Vatican city walls with no one but employees. We were essentially the only 15 people in the Vatican museum for our entire time there. Rachel did a wonderful job of pointing out interesting things in a huge museum that would otherwise be unbelievably overwhelming. Although there were other people present during our time in the Sistine Chapel and St. Peter's, they do a great job of getting you all the info you need before hand and showing you the stuff.

Wonderful tour and we would definitely do it again.

Great tour and very informative guide. Nice buffet breakfast. Paced just right. She got us out of breakfast just in time to get ahead of the crowds that were about to enter the museums then took her time in each room to explain the meaning of what we were seeing. Recommend this one highly.

We thoroughly enjoyed the tour and found that Rachel our tour guide was highly knowledgeable and also thoroughly professional in her approach. At the start of the tour we had an issue that needed to be addressed and she did so promptly and calmly. We would thoroughly recommend this tour as the best way to experience the Vatican.

Tiffany was great. She made the Vatican tour very entertaining for our whole family (even the 10 year old)! Breakfast in the Pinecone Courtyard before the crowds was magical.
