We highly recommend City Lights Skip the line Vatican Library and Sistine Chapel tour. The guide Alexandra was through, very knowledgeable and very personable. The tour from initial booking to the actual tour were very well handled.

Breathtaking tour. Full of amazement from start to finish. Tour guide was very friendly and informative and fun. Was easy to follow her with her special flag ahead of the group. It was truly a relief to have the skip the line tour, we passed a couple hundred people waiting in line to enter the Vatican in the very hot heat. It is worth every penny. Thank you so much for the incredible once in a lifetime experience.

I always wanted to visit the Vatican and this tour didn't disappoint. Our tour guide Alessandra from City Tours was very knowledgeable and friendly. Our 3 hour tour was well paced and at the end we were allowed to view the inside of St. Peters Basilica at our leisure. The only down side is that it was very hot and there were a lot of people which made the room temperatures seem even stuffier. Don't wear long sleeves as I did.

This tour was well worth the cost. We got right through the crowds as promised. The tour guide was very knowledgeable and professional. Would do again.

We were disappointed by this tour. The tour guide gave us radios so that if we could hear her as we walked through the Vatican Museums. It felt like the entire experience was rushed and if we got too far from our guide we could no longer hear her on the radio so we missed what she was saying. Also, the guide brought us to St. Peter's Basilica and left us at the front door, no explanation or information was provided about the history of the Basilica. Overall we were left disappointed and wanting more from this tour. However, I will say that it is worth it to pay to skip the line as the line wrapped around the building.

Tour was fantastic- the City Lights Staff walked me to the entrance and even lent me an umbrella so that I wasn't totally drenched by the time we got there. The tour guide was incredibly knowledgeable and made sure I knew how to easily get to St Peter's Basilica. Highly recommend for anyone wanting to skip lines

Didn't wait too long. There was a little confusion with the re-scheduling, but totally understandable. Maya was great. Our guide, Erik, was knowledgable and witty. Only recommendation would be to go a little slower through the museum. Great tour!

Thanks to ALBERTO, who made our tour to the Vatican really memorable. He was very knowledgeable, as well as accommodating. This tour is a must for all visiting the Vatican, and interested to know about its history.

Missed the tour - when I got there, the agency told me the tour left at 11:15 instead of 11:30. Told me I should've known, but my voucher said 11:30.
