On Friday 31st October early in the afternoon we headed to Vatican City. The intention was to spend the afternoon to visit St Peter's Basilica and then maybe the Museums and Sistine Chapel. The queue was very long (I mean all around the Basilica's huge square) so we asked an attendant in regards to the expected waiting time. He said... More

We took the tour at the chance to skip the massive waiting line for St. Peter's. Our guide Alberto was very good and it was a pleasure listening to his commentaries. The only thing I can complain of is the 5 euro charged extra by the company if paying by credit card. After the fee of 46 euros per person,... More

We choose for the '"skip the line" tickets (46€ pp). We had the tour with the lovely Deny. She'll tell you everything ythat there is to know about the Vatican city, in such a way, that you hang on every word she'll say. This fantastic woman gave us a journey we'll never forget! Thanks again!!

Alberto was our guide in the Vatican Museums and Sistine Chapel and helped to make what could be overwhelming seem easy to absorb and remember. Has a slightly quirky style of his own, and brought some humour to the experience. Would recommend!

My friend and I arrived in Vatican City around 11am only to find the line to St. Peter's wrapped around the plaza. We were approached by a very nice gentleman who was asking if we wanted to do a tour to skip the line. We had already purchase our tickets online to see Vatican Museums, so we said no. He... More

We wanted to visit the Sistine Chapel but saw the long line ups. We were given a choice to take a tour and decided to do so, what a mistake. The cost was way out of line, over 45 Euros per person. And an extra 5 Euro charge for using our Visa. Yes we missed the line up but wow... More

My friend and I just took the tour today... We were originally going to wait in the line but were sold by a very nice gentleman on this tour in order to skip the humongous line. We got our headsets and followed our tour guide over towards the square in front of St. P's Basilica. The tour guide was interrupted... More
