Rome Vatican, Sistine Chapel and St Peter's Basilica Early Morning Express Tour

The Vatican Museums are among the most crowded in the world, sometimes having as many 20,000 visitors in a day. On this tour, see the Vatican, Sistine Chapel, and St. Peter’s Basilica (note: the Basilica is closed to the public on Wednesdays) in the relative peace of early morning, entering the museums well before they are open to the public—when you enter the Sistine Chapel, it is mostly empty. A small-group size means plenty of personal attention.

We booked this tour in January and, due to the covid, had to cancel it in March. When we cancelled, I called and talked to Aaron who assured me they would refund the money I had paid for the tour. The cancellation policy states that refunds are at the discretion of management,

Be careful! We booked a tour with The Roman Guy. It was for a trip in May and we booked in January. In March I called to ask what the cancellation penalty would be if we cancelled due to the Covid Pandemic. Their agent, Aaron, answered the phone and was very nice. He

We are sorry to be letting our customers down in this situation. The pandemic has hit our sector hard and fast.We would also like to apologize for the timeline inconsistencies regarding the resolution of your cancelation request. We have severely under-estimated the length of time that we would be hindered by this pandemic. It has forced us to reach down into some of the fine print in our terms and conditions that we hoped would never see the light of day. We’ve updated our policy to the credit voucher system for future guests - which is becoming an industry standard. There will be no surprises if a pandemic or force majeure situation of this size arises again as our policy is now uniform with our response. We deserve the 1-star review in this situation. We regret that we were not able to show you why our tours are consistently rated 5-Stars. We understand you are unhappy with credits but we are still hoping to make it up to you on your next trip. We are great at tours and terrible at pandemics.

Extremely knowledgeable guide and fascinating subjects. The only improvement I would love to see for virtual tour are even more slides of the villa and art. I recognize this may be difficult given copyright issues.

Our tour guy, Franco, is a walking encyclopedia. Every question was answered with utter precision and amazing anecdotes. Sights like the Vatican Museum and the Sistine Chapel are hard to get through for people like us (concentration span of goldfish), but he made this several
