This is ths only way to see the vatcan museums and sistine chapel. Great experience orchestrated by a knoeledgeable guide. Most do.
Our tour was great, but don't go on Wednesday, as we did. The Pope has an audience in St. Peter's Square on that day, so you spend more time at the Vatican. By the time you get to the Sistine Chapel, it is open to the public. So much for the private, quiet experience in the Sistine Chapel.
This tour was the best time and money spent in Rome. Rachel was enthusiastic, knowledgeable, and fun. We waited for St. Peter and #39;S to open post-tour since we went on Wednesday. Perfect. An incredible experience.
The guide GiGi was fantastic, the whole tour was informative ans worth every penny. Getting up early was worth it to have breakfast in the Vatican and to view most of it without crowds
Wonderful tour with a friendly, knowledgeable guide. Exceeded expectations. Absolutely recommend this tour! This is my second five-star experience on this recent trip.
This tour was very well organized and I was very impressed with the tour guide. She was very knowledgeable, and made the tour exciting. Wonderful experience!
Very interesting and informative tour. Our guide was very knowledgeable on the art and history I don't remember her name but she was from Venezuela.
Absolutely fantastic. Our guide Nicolas as wonderful. The breakfast was also very, very good. Worth the money. We had the Vatican to ourselves for the first hour or so. It was great. Nicolas took us to areas that I am sure if you are on your own, you will not find.
incredible and awesome. if you want to do vatican and cistene chapel this is the one to do. worth every penny. if you get to the meeting place early, go down the stairs to get some coffee. 6:30 is early but they will find you. only about 10 people per guide so very personal. only negative, if you can't do stairs then this isn't for you. i managed by going up one at a time. cistine chapel is accessible
Unbelievable opportunity to view the Vatican in a unique way. Very early entry tour starts at 6:30. Great tour guides. We went with my sister-in-law and her husband who had previously visited the Vatican. They feel like they were seeing something for the first time. Awesome!!
Meeting up was easy albeit early. Entry was quick and breakfast was fabulous! Great and plentiful choices, perfectly cooked, delicious coffee and time to stroll in the PineCone Coutyard. Rachel was fantastic, very informative I am an art historian!, humorous, interesting, helpful and fun. Great to get in before the crowds and enjoy looking at great building and great art in an easy uncrowded way. Rachel answered every question we asked and was delightful. Highly recommend and, actually we would do it again!!! The best!!

Wow, Wow, Wow, this was a great Tour, the breakfast at the Vatican Couryard was excellent. We met there and had a nice breakfast and then our tour started. You get to tour before the crowds start, excellent tour, excellent tour guide. Learned a lot, got to see a lot, there were maybe 20 people on this tour, and it's worth getting up early. Great! Can't say anything bad about this!
We were on a tight time schedule so this tour was perfect for us ... In and out before the major crowds swamped inside. Loved that we beat the crowds with the early morning entry crowds were there at the end part of the tour. Would recommend this tour.
This was definitely one of the highlights of my holiday. I enjoyed the Vatican more that Rome itself. The breakfast was excellent and watching the sunrise shining into the courtyard and onto the Vatican was magical.
Had an early start for this trip but well worth it. Great breakfast with eggs, pancakes and even Holy Milk. Great to get into the Vatican before the crowds. Excellent guide.
The breakfast itself was pretty bad - e.g., things that should have been hot were cold. However, the guided tour of the Vatican museums was outstanding. This would not have been possible without the personalized attention of our guide with the small group.
This is a must tour when visiting the Vatican...the Breakfast was delicious and skipping the lines was GREAT!!! The tour guide was very knowledgeable and gave a great presentation! Thanks.

It's an early one but so worth it. Our tour guide kept up interested and entertained the entire time. Lots of history! and Hello!! Vatican in the misty morning fog without the huge crowdsMagical!
The tour guide was friendly and passionate about his job and telling us about the Vatican. The breakfast was delicious and the setting was amazing. Would actually do this same tour again.
A very VIP experience. The ability to access the Vatican before the crowds was priceless.
This tour was definitely worth the money to be able to get to see the Vatican with less people! Makes the experience so much more enjoyable.
Our guide was excellent! The breakfast was just OK. It was raining that day so we ate inside. The real reason we went was the tour not the breakfast so we did not mind. It was well organized and worth it to beat the lines and the crowds.
