This tour was excellent much better than what I expected. The only down side was that after the tour we were not taken back to our hotels . They dropped us off at sights meant to be near our hotels , but some of us had really long walks in the dark and we were all very tired anyway.

Exceptional! We were very lucky that it wasn't hugely busy which increased the pleasure of this visit in Nov, and the fact that we took the 2:30 tour meant that when we came out it was dark and we saw the Vatican lit up. Our guide was very informative and helpful. Words cannot describe how awesome the Sistine Chapel, Vatican Museum and St Peter's Basilica are.

From the booking perspective, it was not clear which hotels they pick you up from and in actual fact there were no hotel pick ups on our tour. Also, make sure you know where their office is locate to catch the bus to start the tour. They do drop people off at a few designated spots on the way back which was very helpful.

Awesome tour, thoroughly recommend it. :)

When you arrive at Vatican City and you see the long lines winding around the front you'll be glad you booked a skip the line tour in advance. The tour guide was very informative, we unfortunately had an annoying American couple that kept interrupting as the guide was speaking. The pictures you see of St Peters church doesn't do it justice you have to see it just to see how grand it really is!

A great way to see these breathtaking landmarks without wasting half your day standing in lines. Our guides were knowledgeable and enthusiastic. Tours are well-organized, a vital concern with the crowds you'll encounter. We moved through each building with ease, and we had as much time as we wanted in St Peter's itself. St Peter's was not a guided tour, we were on our own. We were rushed through the Sistine Chapel, very disappointing that our group was given less than 10 minutes there. Very crowded that day and probably necessary, but still a bummer. There is so much to see in the Sistine and it's barely possible to get a feel for it in that short a time.
