The early access started at 11:30! The group was mixed with the crowds. Due to COVID these were thankfully less than normal.

This tour was the highlight of my trip. Maria-Laura was a great guide who explained the highlights of the museum but didn’t spend too much time with boring stuff. we got to skip the line and went into the museum about an hour before it opened to the general public. Only thing I noticed is they guarantee no more than 12 per tour and we had 14....not a big deal but just saying...

Federica was an amazing guide. She brought the history to life and was completely engaging with our tour group. I know my Vatican experience would have not have been the same had it not been for her knowledge and awesome presentation Amazing experience

The tour guide was the best and very educated about the Vatican. The tour was also very educational.

Francesca was a very knowledgeable guide who obviously loves her work . Having just 12 in the group added to the experience as you felt you were being spoken to directly . Would highly recommend

Fantastic tour with such a lovely knowledgeable personable guide named Laura.
Enchanting being amongst the splendour without any crowds and being guided to the magic ‘greatest hits’ and not feeling overwhelmed. Well worth the extra money for such a special tour.
I highly suggest going to the dome of St. Peter’s after the tour (extra 8 euros - lots of steps but the view is amazing !!

A really great introduction and feel for the Vatican. 30 mins in Sistene Chapel a bit long. Maybe half that time and remind tourists to refer to leaflet and silence required.

It was nice to have a guide help make sense of the vast collection of art in the Vatican Museum, but more walking p, less talking would have moved this rating from a 4 to a 5. Because the radio system did not work, we had to huddle around the guide to listen to the commentary rather than being able to wander a little while listening. This meant that a lot of time was wasted is just standing stitour.more

Our guide was very professional and informative about the history of the museum and it's artifacts. Perfect size group. We walked past a lot people who were waiting in line. Our timing as we toured the Vatican Museum was on point. We were able to stop and view some of the art that you would normally have to rush thru. She explained the history and the meaning of the art that were looking atour.more

We booked this tour couple of months in advance and were very excited. We would be in Rome less than 24 hours and knew we had to hit it hard to see the most important areas to us. We took a Colosseum tour the evening we arrived, with plans to take this Vatican tour at 8 a.m. the next morning. After checking out of our hotel that morning, we walked to our car parked several blocks away to leatour.more
