    So you want to see the Vatican and the Sistine Chapel. We did this tour because we wanted to not wait in line. So did 5 zillion other people. The tour group people were friendly and we found the meeting place easy. The skip the line, we waited maybe 15 min to get in, so that wasn't bad. Once you're in, we shuffled up to the museums (shuffled because of the millions of people touring this). Now you have to go through each museum/room on a snake like trail to get to the Sistine Chapel. No short cuts. It's cool to see the museums and was amazing to see the Sistine Chapel. I'm happy we did this, but it was VERY crowded. Afterwards, we went outside to see St Peter's Square. I kinda wished we spent the time at St Peter's basilica and toured that instead. The square is amazing.

    We are sorry that u didn't have a great experience, but the service that we provide was just to skip the line. Unfortunately we can not organize the crowded rooms of the museums. Anyway the feedback must be for our service and not for the museums organization.
