Our guide for this tour was Giuseppe and our group was 20 people in total. Totally worth spending a bit more to pre-book and get to skip the line which was already very long, even in January! Feel very lucky to have been part of Giuseppe's group - his passion and knowledge shone through. We covered all the main highlights and had a great Vatican experience! Thank you Giuseppe!

This tour included a highly knowledgeable guide, with headphones so we could hear her. While We saw the line to get into the Vatican Museum stretch down the street and around the block, we had a preset time to enter, with our tickets already purchased through the tour. Through our guide you not only see some of the world's most incredible art, but you learn the history behind the work. The Sistine Chapel is beyond words! While photos are allowed in the rooms of the Vatican Museum and is St. Peter's, photos are NOT allowed in the Sistine Chapel. St Peter's was the highlight of our time on the tour. The beauty and history of the church was emotionally moving. I recommend this tour to see all you need to see, and get it done in half a day.

Wonderful tour! The museum could be overwhelming but our guide was able to help make this a very enjoyable and informative tour. And unless you see the line, you have no idea how awesome skipping it is! This tour is worth way more than what you pay.

Really excellent. Our guide Ursu was knowledgeable and friendly and kept us going. The skip the line was highly desirable given the long lines to enter the Vatican.

Excellent tour - learnt a lot about the backroom history to the art and church. Tour guide was highly knowledgeable and personable too. It is a shame that the tour could not extend to the church itself in the afternoon sessions because of the religious services that take place then...so if this is important to you, take the other sessions available. Also, the meeting/starting point for the tour guide is unclear and can create anxiety - honestly guys, just provide a small map! I had to call to find who I would be meeting and where and how to recognise our guide etc etc...other than that - fantastic!

Very quick access with the full history on all the sightseeings. It is highly recommended to take this tour. So much to see you can and #39;t know where to begin and where to end. Takes you through every area. Only thing g was there was no allowance of time for souvenirs.
