Reviews for Skip The Line Tour: Vatican Museums And Sistine Chapel
Guide is important
We had an outstanding guide for this excursion. Seeing the sistine chapel and the vatican and st peters basilica was amazing.
Great tour and even better tour guide
This was a great tour that saved a lot of time waiting in lines. Ricardo was very knowledgeable and great at dodging the crowds. We learned a lot and were able to appreciate the museum more than going on our own. I would warn you that there is a lot of walking and standing on this tour and no time for breaks. Be prepared with water!
Very rushed
So rushed, with a guide who spoke so quickly that I was sorry I bothered with a tour. Didn’t get one minute to appreciate what we were there to see
Very informative guide and really pretty inside the museum
Our guide was impressive! I couldn't believe how much information she knew. I was a little surprised by the amount of people squeezed into the Museum, and even though we had a skip the line group, it was a lot of waiting. It's warm inside, so I think i would go in late fall or early spring if I was to do it again!
Would go again
Our tour guide had so much helpful information about the Vatican. The history behind the art work was fascinating. He pointed out so many things we would have never noticed.
