This is as advertised. Meet near the entrance, receive your tickets, tour the Museum on your own. Note this does not include entrance to St Peter's Basilica, only the Museum. Sistine Chapel is part of the Museum, however.
We did not get a tour, just the skip the line option. It was definitely worth it - we did not have to wait in line at all!
Great way to get into the Vatican museum and Sistine Chapel. We chose the upgrade for the guided tour and were somewhat shocked when we heard how long it was going to be. We were glad we didn't book anything afterwards. That being said, with the amount of people they move through there in a day there was no way we could have gotten through any faster than we did. It was lovely to have a guide as otherwise we would have walked through like zombies with no idea what was going on. The massive crush of people is just insane. Overall, it was a wonderful experience.
City Wonders delivered exactly what they promised. The tour operators we bought tickets only, not the tour were very helpful and professional. I would recommend buying the guided tour, the press of people in the Vatican museum can be overwhelming.
Our taxi ran late picking us up from the cruise port and they were so accommodating. We were originally scheduled for a 10AM tour and without hesitation allowed us to join the 11AM tour. Our guide was amazing - there is so much art throughout the Vatican and rather than just walk through he took time to explain and give history of certain pieces. The Vatican was crowded, which is to be expected, however we did not have trouble hearing or following our guide the entire tour. When we left around 2PM the entrance line was at least 2-3 hours long which we did not have to wait in. I would highly recommend this tour.

Last year we purchased a guided tour. Im not saying do not do that as it was great as well. However, with a guided tour limited in time you see just the highlights. Maybe not your highlights. We used bees skip the line tickets to get in and see essentially the other half of the museum. We spent nearly 5 hours looking at all the other things we had missed.
I will say it was kind of sad that they put up a restaurant in the courtyard. A bit tacky.
Exactly as it says. No waiting, no fuss.
Skip the line is a MUST! Beautiful and memorable experience.
