We were the first group into the Vatican museums and Sistine Chapel on the day we took the tour. It was amazing to sit in the Sistine chapel without the crowds and to really enjoy the experience. Our guide was good, booking was easy and I would recommend this early morning tour if you visit Rome and the Vatican.

I am so happy we booked this tour to the Vatican. There were very few groups inside and even though the tour was short, we saw and learned much more because it was not crowded and our guide was excellent at explaining the history in this beautiful city. Thank you for providing such a good tour of the Vatican from Ellen and Bob.

WE had a great experience on this tour. We made our way through many rooms and art exhibitions towards the Sistine Chapel and from there we made our way to St Peters Basilica. Our guide was friendly and we made new friends on our tour. Afterwards, 8 of us stayed together and had lunch in the city.

I would recommend this tour if you want to see the Vatican without huge crowds of people around. Our guide spoke very good English, and nothing was too much trouble, she explained everything very well, and her knowledge was amazing, I would definitely use this company again.

Our guide took us through the museums explaining everything on the way and then before we entered the Sistine Chapel she explained its history as you cannot talk in the chapel. A very good tour which I would recommend.

After searching the internet I came across this tour and decided to book it. It was easy to book online and we found our meeting point easily. This tour is an early morning one which means you get to see the Vatican before the masses of people arrive. I highly recommend the tour and will be telling all of my friends about it.
