While instructions were spelled out clearly, I didn't realize the bus had come by our hotel to pick us up until the tour was over! We had never confirmed that we needed pick up, but certainly appreciated that option. But out guide was wonderful, and it is truly satisfying to be able to walk past the long lines and have special exits in certain places along the way specifically in the Sistine Chapel since we were with a tour group. Our guide was entertaining and very experienced and knowledgeable.

Pros: Our guide Emilia was very lively and funny. She took great care that no one in our group got lost and described each objective in detail.

Cons: the meeting point was a street away from the one described in the ad. But if you call them they will provide directions and help you.

Max was our guide and extremely interesting to moderate our group. This tour is a must see. We arrived at 8:00 and lines were double around the Vatican wall and we simply bypassed with the skip the line ticket and started our day tour immediately.

Beautiful experience. We were in and out and people were still standing in line. Worth it. The lunch was good and the servers were very nice. Went back the next day for lunch.

We really enjoyed this tour! For anyone who wants to see the museums and Sistine Chapel, you just cannot go without a tour. The lines are crazy long, and in the heat - miserable. Happily, much of this tour is inside, because the late spring/summer can be hot. Our guide moved us at a perfect pace for information, picture-taking, and pondering.

Wonderful tour but will be writing to you separately about issues to do with the management of the trip.
