Well worth the price! We got to see many things that the public doesn't including the Bramante staircase. Great tour guide.

Very unusual to have 45 minutes after hours in the Sistine Chapel with only 16 others in our tour. Our guide was allowed to describe everything in depth which is a complete opposite of the guide not even being allowed to talk during normal hours. Tour of the Pope's quarters was outstanding. Our guide was excellent and very knowledgeable.
The Sistine Chapel after hours WOW. only about 13 people in our group. The Chapel without the great crowds is wonderful to see. I'm not so sure about the secret rooms though because I have done an ordinary Sistine Chapel tour in the past, and I saw the so called Secret rooms before So, although this cost a lot of money, its well worth it just to spend 20 minutes in the Chapel without crowds - however, the Secret Rooms bit, is a bit of a fib.
Beyond our expectations. Our tour guide, Dorianna, was extremely knowledgeable and sweet!
This was a once in a lifetime experience. Having been to the Sistine Chapel before and doing the regular program Going in with the masses This is a totally different experience. When you go on the regular tour you get 5 minutes in the chapel with 500 People jammed in and guards yelling at you to keep quiet. No pictures either. This tour we got over 30 minutes with only 12 ppl in the chapel. Got to roam around and had the place to ourselves, also got to take plenty of pictures. That alone is worth the . The rest of the tour was good but the Sistine Chapel private visit is what it's all about.

Incredible. Definitely worth spending the extra money for the private viewing and small group tour. Guide was extremely knowledgeable and personable.
Everything was amazing. Even during the off season the lines are out of control long. This bypassed everything. Our guide was incredible. He had encyclopedic knowledge of the most minute details about the Vatican, the secret rooms and the Sistine Chapel. Seeing the Sistine Chapel without the crowds was priceless. Well worth the price.
Our host was filled with interesting insights into the art and history of the Vatican Museum and Sistine Chapel. This tour was the highlight of an amazing two weeks in Italy.
This is one of the best tours of my life anywhere. I mean that. Shannon was a joy to listen to with a slight southern Alabama/Italian drawl. She was quick in the accessing of the areas we were to see, Obviously knew her subjects of discussion very well. The Sistine chapel with the quiet of only twelve other people and two guards was a highlight of my Italy tour. We also saw the secret Vatican rooms and the Raphael rooms by the great contemporary of Michelangelo. I cannot recommend this tour well enough. Overlook the cost and realize that you will see what very few others have seen or ever will see.
An absolute necessity for any trip to Rome! I have been to the Sistine Chapel on two other occasions and this was by far the most enjoyable and informative way to see this most famous of locations.
