Our tour of the Vatican, Sistine Chapel and the Basilica was perfect! Our guide, Maria was excellent, giving much interesting information that we would never have learned on our own! Pickup from our hotel was great, but be warned—you have to make your own way...More

We had seen the inside of St Peter's getting to the Vatican really early but still needed to see the Sistine Chapel. So we hooked up with Sistine Chapel Tours and it was well worth the money. Our guide Grant (from South Africa originally) was...More

The only way to take a Vatican Museum tour. Take this tour and skip the long lines. I felt like a VIP. Our tour guide Simonetta was extremely knowledgeable and had a passion for her tours.

A great tour and well worth the early start. Our guide, Paolo, was enthusiastic and very knowledgeable and made the tour very enjoyable. We started at 7.30 which worked well - at one stage the two of us were the only people in the Sistine...More

Utilized the “Skip the Line” online ticket voucher booking through Tiqets.com for the Sistine Chapel. I hadn’t chosen to do this for other Rome sites such as the Colosseum, the reason being that there is obviously a premium charged for the tickets. I decided to...More
