Excellent experience

An excellent experience and worth paying that little extra to jump the que. We went in August when the weather was hot so taking a drink is recommended
What fast track?

Terrible service. It would have been quicker and cheaper to have joined the general admission queue. We were counted into one group then told to wait for no reason at all. The girl left without us knowing and we were put with a later group. By the time we left the queue for fast track group admission was huge. No apology no explanation just a shambles. It would be easy to fix their poor organisation if they actually cared but it was very clear they didn't care at all. I would not recommend this service from this experience it was a disaster. We paid for a fast track entry and did not receive it. Not worth the money or your time.
Great Experience!

This was a huge help in avoiding the lines! Meeting office is across the road from the entrance which was perfect.
Well worth the fast track!

Booked these tickets as heard there could be long queues and decided against the guided tour as we just wanted to wander at our own pace! Well the worth the fast track as we turned up at the ticket office and we’re taken straight through the Vatican entrance and did not have to wait. Amazing place to visit but as I imagined it was very busy and hot!
Best experience

It was really “no line” service. We walked right to the entrance. Best thing ever!! They were on time and walked with us untill check point.

Many of the activities that took place were not explained prior to purchase (e.g., had to wait 30 minutes for 9 additional people before being taken to museum; taken to museum by a representative and dropped off at the ticket booth with no further action or advise; not advised that we had to go through the entire museum to simply view the sistine chapel, this caused an extreme rush that was not enjoyable due to having to meet our transportation.)

Our "tour guide" sent us out on our own. Was told my tour was free due to being in wheelchair and would get a full refund. So we had no guide, and viator said they would have to look into refund. The chapel was amazing.
Spectacular morning at the Vatican Gardens, Sistine Chapel, Vatican Museums and short visit to St Peter's.

Our Fast Track introduction to the above sites was enhanced greatly by our guide Alexandra who was a fund of knowledge. She kept us all well informed and interested. The weather was extremely hot so she found us shady areas and discussed the backgrounds of the Sistine Chapel Treasures.
Wish I had had a guide

I paid for what I thought was a guided tour. We were taken past the line, definitely fast pass, however once inside we were left to our own devices. Worked out ok as I found another American to walk with. The Vatican is amazing. It is definitely a once in a lifetime experience. For several reasons. First being that many people will not have the opportunity to ever see the Vatican. The second being that I honestly wouldn't do it again. It's beautiful granted, but too crowded. I understand that so many people want the experience however, by the time I got to the Sistine Chapel I was overheated and being diabetic my sugar was too low to even enjoy. If I ever do it again I would bring frozen bottles of water and some juice. Don't recommend for kids. Alot of walking. An amazing experience for sure but a guide would have been helpful to know what I was looking at.
Too many people to be enjoyable

Sadly, there are just too many people in this museum for it to be a good experience. We literally shuffled along for hours and while the sights and exhibits were incredible, I'm not sure it was worth being herded like cattle from room to room. Also, it's super weird how there is this huge middle man market where you have to use a guide to get in instead of everything being owned by the Vatican itself. With a do-over, I would have scheduled this months ago through the official Vatican channel and then hopefully have had more flexibility to go through at our pace.
