Well worth the price to gain early access. After exiting the museum, the line was wrapped around two corners of the building.

We expected to beat the crowds, but our little group of 10 was the first group of the entire day to enter the museums. We had the Sistine Chapel all to ourselves! This tour made the whole experience so much more enjoyable without shoulder-to-shoulder crowds getting in the way. Our guide was terrific, too.

Vale cada centavo! Entrar a la capilla sixtina con solo 20 personas fue increíble y lo mejor es que de ahí puedes ir a la capilla de San Pedro sin hacer fila y con muy poca gente

Vasco was a great tour guide. He gave a clear and informative description of what we were to see inside the chapel. Enjoyed the tour very much.

So awesome!!! We are literally the first people in!!! Don and #39;t expect a full tour. Just a guide with some commentary from Vatican to Sistine chapel but it and #39;s awesome being the first people in.

This was definitely the way to visit the Sistine Chapel. The chapel itself is breathtakingly beautiful, and being there very early with fewer people was definitely the way to go. Later in the day, we walked past the lines to get in, and they were blocks long. I highly recommend the early access tour.

Worth every penny simply to be the first few people to enter the Sistine Chapel.

A great way to see the sistine chapel and museum before the crowds. A huge amount of walking and stairs due to bad planning in the museum. Try to get to the rapheal rooms by 10am or it is wall to wall people and far too much. Choose a quieter time of the year than june if you want to spend more time or limit your time to this tour.

We went on a Wednesday and were the second tour into the chapel, had the place quite to ourselves, no crowds. Definitely worth getting there at 7:30 to start the tour. Well organized!

this is worth the money -- our group of 15 was literally the first to walk into the Sistine Chapel at 8 am -- other small groups followed, but still only a couple hundred people filled that huge space for the first hour before crowds began to stream in at 9 am. I sat quietly for an hour just drinking in the beautiful ceiling, Last Judgement and 15th-c frescoes. Magical! if you care about the Vatican Museums, this was difficult -- they are poorly marked for navigating -- I bought an audio tour to find my way around and I still missed the entire art gallery. Read up on the Museums in a guidebook before coming, as the Vatican doesn't make it easy to figure out what is where - they are more concerned with crowd control.

This tour was great. The crowds were minimal and the guards in the Sistine Chapel were much more friendly and laid back than they were when we walked through it again later. Our guide was very knowledgeable and pointed out lots of things to look for in the paintings. I definitely recommend this tour.

Being one of the first in and walking the galleries in peace and quiet to reach the Sistine with virtually no one there was magical! Super guide. A highlight of our trip to Rome!

This is perfect. There were only about 15 people in the Sistine Chapel when we arrived. Then, we were free to return to museum or go to St. Peter's. Since this museum is overwhelming....beautiful, but overwhelming......this was the tour for us!

Worth every penny. Later it is so crowded you can hardly get through. Getting in early you really get to enjoy what you are seeing.

I highly suggest for everyone to have early access. We were able to admire the Sistine Chapel without being crowded and bumping into others.

My family enjoyed this tour immensely. It allows you to enter the Sistine chapel before the public so that you can admire this amazing work in peace and quiet. It is not a guided tour but simply an escorted tour to the Sistine Chapel. Considering how crowded it got later, this was worth waking up early in the morning for.

An excellent tour that was well worth getting up early. Guide pointed out interesting facts and was excellent. As the advert states, you do get better,quieter access to the site before the melee begins, allowing you to take some great pictures, with less people on display....
Recommended if you can get up early.

The early rise for this tour is well worth the effort. We met the guides across from the entrance to the Vatican Museums. The tour was very well organised. I was delighted with the technology used in order that we could hear the guide. We were given an ear piece and a booster which worked very well in ensuring that we could hear everything. Our guide, an enthusiastic art historian, was very knowledgeable and instilled excitement in what was to come. She lead us through the empty museum to the Sistine Chapel. The museums were amazing and being there ahead of the crowds was magical. In the Sistine Chapel we were able to sit at the side to view the paintings and then walk to the other side and sit down again. There were very few people and there was a respectful silence. Another wonderful Viator experience.

Our group of 12 got up very early for this tour, but it was totally worth it. Our guide gave us some great information about the Sistine Chapel, and we got to see the chapel with only a few other people. The guards pretty much left us alone (not asking us to be quiet or anything). After we had looked around the Vatican museums a little, we had to go back through the Sistine Chapel to get into St. Peter's Basilica, and the chapel was packed. The guards were stationed throughout the room herding the crowds along. That was when we truly realized how glad we were that we had taken the early tour.
