Where can I start, this tour was made even more wonderful by our tour guide, who kept our attention for every minute with her amazing knowledge and personality. We were a bit sceptical at first by the price of the tour but believe me it was worth every penny. So impressed.

Firstly our tour guide looked after us all very well. Fantastic knowledge of the Vatican City, Sistine Chapel and the Basilica. Answered all questions from us, tourists. So much to see and take in. The wonders of Michelangelo's famous painting absolutely amazing up close. A brilliant walking tour. A must see if you are in Rome. Make sure you have good walking shoes and can manage the crowds. Well worth a visit.

I signed up for a guided tour as I was told this was the most efficient way to visit the Vatican + St Peter's Basilica and Sistine Chapel. I went on a Saturday morning for the skip the line tour. Be aware, that although this saves a lot of time waiting to purchase tickets individually, there are still inevitable waits as the grounded are flooded with tourists from all walks of life. That said, our guide managed through the chaos, kept the group together, and provided a fantastic historical walkthrough of all the sites and exhibits. You can tell he was well versed in the culture. His passion was evident as well, which made for a fun 4-hour educational experience. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone.

The Skip the Line morning tour Vatican Museum St. Peter's Basilica and Sistine Chapel Tour via privatetour.com was Excellent! The Guide was a lovely lady, who knew a lot about the Art and the History of the Vatican museums, the Sistine Chapel and the St. Peter's Basilica. We almost were a private group (7 nice people) and during this time of the year, there weren't lots of visitors. We enjoyed the tour and we were amazed by the treasures/history of the Vatican.
