Traveller Tips


Despite the name; skip the line; you do not skip lines.
The tour is 4 hours long, with a whole lot of steps up and down, so you need to be prepared to be on your feet for a long time.
I would highly recommend this tour company and tour, but if you don't like crowds and the heat, I would go during the off season.

Tour guide was attentive,...
Marcelo_P, Jan 2022
Tour guide was attentive, brought several interesting topics beyond usual expectations and did not rush the group from room to room. Highly recommended
Excellent - worth it!

Great guide. Extremely knowledgeable. We could have listened to her all day! She was amazing. Thumbs up.
Lifetime adventure

Sistine Chapel was an amazing spiritual experience. Michaelangelo's work brings the Bible to life in very dramatic fashion. Seeing this in person was a dream come true.
Pleasant and worthy

We used the same company to the Colosseum and Vatican tours. My husband and I had a wonderful time. Both tours were with Elizabeta and she is amazing. Truly 5 stars.

A heart experience! The artistry is unbelievable and the guide gave history that we didn’t know and got a chuckle from.

good for fast tracking, very busy and keep getting pushed along without time to see everything, The Lady guide we had had was like a 6th form school teacher tutting and telling you off. Take your own Head Phones as there's are rubbish
Good historical info

Great tour and guide. Very informative. Is truly 3 - 3.5 hours, so plan accordingly. Got way more out of it than expected.
High speed overview
Morten_W, Jan 2020
Richard was a kind and knowledgeable guide. His introductions were very spell-binding. He spoke very engaged and quickly - sometimes he English tongue was a little difficult to understand for danes. We recommend Richard as the guide.

Very disappointed. We did get right in but it was so crowded we could barely move and they said it was a “light day” The tour guide was boring. Would recommend getting ticket and doing self guided do you can go at your own pace
