Francesca gave an excellent, interesting, informative tour and answered our various questions. Skip-the-lilne is worthwhile. However, if you want to go up the dome, that is not part of the tour and not skip-the-line, which was about an hour long for the dome.
Note that there were very few rooms within the Vatican Museums with any seating at all and on this occasion there was no seating in St. Peters other than for maybe twenty or thirty people to pray, which seemed odd and unwelcoming.
Highly recommended being the only way to see the Vasari Corridor and its art work, and because our tour guide (I've forgotten his name) did a good job of engaging us and trying to teach us the differences and evolution of the different styles/epochs.
However, not the fault of the tour, photographs are not permitted at all and there are very few places to sit down even briefly. And no bathroom breaks.
Good tour. Very informative. Great to skip the lines.
