Excellent! Highly informative and interesting, at a comfortable pace. Our guide Tiffanie was superb. Very knowledgeable, with a nice line of humour as well. She looked after the group with consideration as well as moving us into the best positions to see all the wonderful artworks, and entertaining us with stories about the artists. Thoroughly enjoyable and well worth getting up early to'skip the line'!

Fantastic, especially going in early in the morning before it was too busy. Our guide, Elisa (I think), was so knowledgeable and she made it a very enjoyable experience and also gave us great tips for restaurants, bars, etc.

Claudio our guide was very good and passionate about the art and frescos that we saw. The Vatican Museum is huge so don't expect to see it all or spend much time in each gallery. Sistine chapel and St Peter's Basilica were spectacular even given the limited viewing time. When in Rome so this tour.

Fascinating tour - early start a gd idea - 7:30am the square was crowd free - great for photos. Walked straight past the queues, only took two mins to get through security. Our guide, Nicolas, was brilliant. Especially loved his insights re the Sistine chapel. Wish I could do it all again! Thanks

Our tour guide was funny and incredibly knowledgable. Our guide had been there a million times and he he still loves to go in and see it with you. The tour starts just after 8 am. Early, if you have just arrived in Rome. But once you see the crowds and realize how many people go each day. Worth it

The best part of this tour is the nuggets of information you get from the guide. Things that you might have walked by and not payed attention to actually have very interesting back stories. The inside of the Vatican is truly awe inspiring and it takes a knowledgable guide to get the full effect.
