Nice to get in to the museum early because it was packed. Our tour guide, Sylvia, was superb. She had a very thorough knowledge of the museum, the Sistine Chapel, and the Vatican. She handled a lot of stupid questions with style and grace. Would go again 10/10.

Our guide was interesting, knowledgeable and very entertaining. He answered all questions with enthusiasm and was every bit in awe of the Vatican as the first timers. It was a little difficult finding our guide as there were many other guides meeting at the same place, but once we hooked up everything fell into place.

Very informative and engaging tour. Our guide we unfortunately don't recall her name was excellent. She was friendly, animated and her energy and enthusiasm for the subject matter was contagious. The early access and small group aspects were of great benefit. My wife and I very much enjoyed our tour and wouldn't hesitate recommending it to others visiting the Vatican.

This was the second tour I have done of the Vatican. I would highly recommend this tour! The general lines are so long and it is so nice to be able to go in before the general public. I really liked our tour guide, I wish I could remember her name. She was very knowledgeable and not rushed. I did another tour last year and was disappointed at how it ended. We had to return our headsets in a store after listening to a sales pitch. We were unaware that once you leave the Basilica you cant reenter without standing in a very long line in the sun! We wanted to walk to the top of the Dome, but couldnt. I really appreciated that this tour ended at the Basilica so we were able to enjoy it after the tour, and our tour guide showed us exactly where we needed go for the Dome!!

Our guide was very knowledgable and interesting, It goes without saying, the site is awe inspiring. I however, was surprised by the huge amount of people and lines for an early access tour. It made it very difficult to enjoy the experience. If that was reduced crowds, full capacity must be a huge disappointment.

This tour was fantastic! Flavia was so knowledgeable and made the tour even better by adding personal touches. With so much to absorb she was able to give us the highlites as well as help us to decide what other tours would be interesting! Luca got us all organized and Flavia allowed us to understand what early times at the Vatican were like! Amazing!

It's a total scam. You turn up a 645 in the morning to be herded into the museum, led by a bashful guide with a stick and some fluttering tissue on top to WAIT and watch other groups, many more, to go up the stairs. Then, you get a very, very, very long explanation about THE Raphael room you were parked with dozens of other people led by other guides with fluttering stuff on their sticks. When you finally arrive in the Sistine Chapel, it's as full, jam-packed as ever, and you get herded out after 15 minutes spent jostling and pushing. I spare you the rest of the tour. Never again!

This tour was worth getting up early to avoid the lines. I don’t remember our guides name but she was English and very passionate about her job. It helped that she was so enthusiastic. She helped keep my toddler entaertained. Warning to parents. The tour is fantastic but a little long for 18 mth old

Flavia was a terrific tour guide. She was extremely knowledgeable, approachable, and had the perfect energy for our group. She was a wealth of information and in the extremely rare instance she didn't know the answer to a question I felt sure she would research the answer for her next group. She really made the tour exceptional and memorable.
