We booked Skip the Line tickets and private guide on the internet. We went straight into the Vatican and our guide was clear, knowledgeable and with very good English. We really enjoyed our time at the Museum, the Sistine Chapel before being shown the "secret" entrance into the Basilica and we had a great morning in the Vatican.

WONDERFUL! This was the first time we had ever been to Rome and we booked many tours. We started with this tour of the Vatican which took three hours and took us through the Vatican museum, the Sistine chapel, and the museums. Our guide was attentive and accommodating and really made the tour for us.

Our tour of the Vatican museum, Sistine Chapel and St. Peters Basilica came alive with our expert tour guide. She had a deep knowledge of the art and history of the Vatican. We have visited Rome and St. Peter's on many occasions and this tour provided much information that we had not previously known. Thank you for a fabulous tour.

The only way to really enjoy the Vatican is with a private tour. I went two years ago on a large group tour and even though the Vatican was astounding, I felt that when the tour was over, I really knew nothing about the history or the arts. This time I booked a private tour and although it was more expensive, it was worth every penny. We had a wonderful guide who really explained the history of the various parts of the Vatican and not having to stand in line was an added bonus. An excellent tour to take.

Our group of six booked this tour online before we traveled. Our friends had been to Italy last year and told us to book a private tour to the Vatican as it will be a much better experience. They were right and we had first-class tour of the Vatican. Our guide was great and I am still overawed by the beautiful paintings on the ceilings and walls.

We learned more taking this tour than we would have if we had taken a group tour. This is an absolute must, worth every cent and we also had an incredible guide who had a wealth of knowledge.

There is just no way that you can visit the Vatican on your own. The crowds are too big and you have to wait forever in the queues. This tour was amazing and having our own guide mad for a great 3 hours. Thank you so much for showing us the Vatican.

My husband and I visited Italy for the first time. We wanted to visit the Vatican and we booked this early entrance private tour. We had already done the Colosseum the day before in a group tour, which although was good, it was not nearly as good as this tour. When we arrived at the meeting point we were treated warmly and introduced to our guide for the morning. The Vatican was beautiful and was everything we expected it to be.

This tour was well worth the extra money to have a private tour. Our guide was able to provide us with insights and take us to areas that would not be possible to share with much larger groups. We were able to ask questions and our guide always had an answer. Such an amazing tour and you will see and learn things that you never knew before going on the tour.

After seeing the lines to get into the Vatican Museums, a skip-the-line tour is well worth it. The best part of our tour was our private guide. She was very knowledgable and engaged everyone in our family of two. She really helped us to understand the history and meaning of the artifacts, the gardens, the Sistene Chapel, and St. Peters Basilica.
