My roommate and I booked this early-morning tour after reading all of the other amazing reviews on TripAdvisor. It was well worth it! We got into the Vatican at 8AM because we were with a tour company, and the general public isn't able to enter until 9AM. Antony guided us straight to the Sistine Chapel, and it was only us... More

Dear Ladies, I am happy you both enjoyed the intimacy of the tour. We always try to make the most of the Chapel on all types of visits but doing the VIP early tour means quite simply less people. Some people get put off by the early morning start but if like getting up early, as you did, a private... More

We had a great tour through the Vatican thanks to our guide Antony. He was to the point, highlighting the most important works (there are so many of them), showing profound knowledge and answering all kinds of questions, filled with humor. The tour was in English, which he was a native speaker, and he spoke Italian and Spanish as far... More

Having walked passed the hundreds of people queuing to get into the Vatican Museum and St Peter's Basilica it really makes you question why everyone doesn't book ahead. This was a great tour with a nice small group of people and a fantastic tour guide Michael who made everything really interesting particularly as there was so much to take in.... More

The tour guides made this a great experience. Antony was very good about communicating information prior to the tour. Antony's knowledge mixed with his funny sense of humor made the tour very interesting. All the sites were incredible! You could tell that Antony wanted to make the experience a special one and took the time to answer questions and not... More

Not only was the efficiency of the Vatican Tour Company to be commended in confirming the booking arrangements and ensuring that I knew just where to be among the throngs of tourists swarming the Vatican the day of e tour, but our guide Veira was delightful. Both knowledgeable and pleasant company, our small group enjoyed being shown the highlights of... More

We booked the 7.30am tour and we were lucky enough to be upgraded to a private tour as we were the only people to book the early tour. On meeting Anthony he was very friendly and even bought us coffee while we waited the few minutes for the doors to open. We were brought throughout the Vatican, Anthony highlighted and... More

We booked this before we left and saved about £20 from buying when we got there. It includes quick entry into St Peters Basillica & The Vatican Museum. You also get free use of a hop on/hop off bus and free public transport for the duration of the pass. It also includes a Roma Pass which gives you free entry... More

We did the 7:30am tour and my fiance and I lucked out and it was just us and tour guide! Eugenia was our tour guide and she was fantastic! She was so knowledgeable and you could tell she had a genuine love and passion for her job. The Vatican is so full of information I would have been completely lost... More

Antony is an excellent tour guide, highly recommended! We only had 2 full days to spend in Rome so we booked tours of the Vatican Museums/Sistine Chapel/Basilica and The Colosseum with VTC and it was worth the extra Euros. You get to skip the long lines to buy tickets and you learn a lot in such a short time.
