Traveller Tips


it started at close to 10, but the wait in line outside was incredibly long, over an hour, even for prebooked tours.
Booking fast track was easy, voucher received by email straight away.
Skip a line was great but tour guides were a bit disorganized.

No Credit for closed events
Magaly_F, Dec 2021
No where on the site does it state the Vatican was to be closed. I tried reaching the company to see if i could get a credit for a different day and all they replied was the Vatican reopened in the 27th
A must but big sales tactic
lolohwl, Dec 2021
We got the fast track just to get in. But when we got there he said there were COVID checks in every room which if we had a guide for extra 25 we could go by. Never saw any checkpoints! Also guy was not flexible with our small group. Worth it but didn’t like the upsale
Stay away

Terrible service. Had to pick up my tickets at a specific time, not possible to get electronic tickets, felt the feeling of fraud, the staff kept pushing by telling us to add services to our ticket. Got a lot of emails with different information. Stay away
Waste of money
Lincoln_C, Nov 2021
Still trying to figure out why I spent extra on a ticket that didn’t have any extra benefits. Would not recommend
Visiting Vatican museums...
Slavina_P, Nov 2021
Visiting Vatican museums was a great experience, what I had problem with was the staff of the agency where I had to go and take my tickets. They were really rude and unorganised. They really need to improve their behaviour!!

Don't go with these guys
Andrei_B, Nov 2021
Being charged cash only $50 extra because I was 10 min late. The ATM in the lobby charged $100 per transaction to get that cash.
Amazing tour
Tammy_T, Oct 2021
Marco was our tour guide, he was great fun and very informative, he explained everything we need to know and he knew everything!!! The pictures we took were amazing, would highly recommend this tour
Bad service
Louise_P, Oct 2021
We tried to change our time slot, we got an email with okay, but at the office a rude assistant tell us that it was not possible. Bad service and bad behaviour from the man I the front desk.
Big disappointment
Anusha_C, Oct 2021
what is advertised as 3 different entrance tickets is just 1 ticket. you are obliged to go through the 1000 rooms of the museums before you can visit the Sistine Chapel. PLEASE NOTE: THIS TAKES 5 HOURS. when picking up the tickets, there is the option to book a guide (extra 30 euros p.p.) so that you can skip a 2 hour wait. all in all a big disappointment. YOU CANNOT JUST VISIT THE SIXTINE CHAPEL.
Can’t miss experience
Paul_J, Oct 2021
What an amazing museum, with all the statues, paintings and to see the Sistine Chapel after waiting nearly 60 years. Wow what a moving and totally wonderful experience
