  • SURREAL!! We were the FIRST people inside the Sistine Chapel and it was BREATHTAKING. Do not pass on this opportunity to sit in quiet by yourself, without the crowds and wonder in awe of this amazing piece of work.

  • I gave this a three because although we saw the chapel, it would have meant a lot more if we had also purchased the audio tour.We were told we could also enter St Peter's Basilica from the back of the chapel, but there was no one around to show us. We just wondered around lost trying to find our way out.

  • Great to get into the chapel before the crowds and skip the queues.

  • We had a fantastic viewing of the Sistine chapel, but the guide was disappointing, She was late first of all and all the people going on the tour were running around looking for her or someone from her company at the meeting point. After eventually turning up, she took us inside the Vatican, leaving us infront of the second entrance point without even explaining where we had to go or what to do from that point onwards. I cannot see the reason why we had to pay for a guide in the first place. It was amazing though to see the Sistine chapel while there were so few people inside and we had more than enough time to look at all the amazing artworks on the walls and ceiling.

  • I wasn't really sure what to expect from this tour. What I got was early entrance to the Vatican and Sistine with no guide. I was happy with that and satisfied with the experience. Good value for the money.

  • The tour was very disorganized. We arrived 15 minutes early as asked on the directions and our tour guide did not show up until right at the time of the tour. They had to check everyone in which cut about 20 minutes into our tour. Would not recommend this particular tour.

  • The tour rep was late arriving. We were instructed to be there 15 to 20 mins before the scheduled time, she turned up 10 mins late! Then there was her total disorganisation. I have no idea how many people were booked on to the tour or how many sub-divisions of bookings there were plain tickets, tickets and guide books, tickets/guide books and audio guides but we were moved from spot to spot and told to just wait whilst she got on with whatever it was she went to do! Then we went through repeated bouts of her calling traveller names out to issue tickets, guides, audio guides, etc with all the expected mispronunciations and delays. Ultimately we decided to depart the group by ourselves once we had our tickets as more and more people were pouring in and the place was starting to get busy which is what the early start is intended to avoid!. To summarise - guide a waste of time and totally disorganised. Expenditure worth it to avoid the queues and serious crowds that come later but a lot of money for what was just an early start. There must be a better way to do this - two days later we did a night time tour of the Colosseum with Tickitaly. The company behind this tour Gray Line I think could learn a lot from examining the competition.

  • Chaotic. The tour guide was very late showing up to the meeting point. Check in was badly disorganized. No instructions were given for ticketing. In all our entry was delayed an hour. Eventually, tickets in hand, we headed in on our own. Museum and chapel were wonderful but entry was not as promised

  • I did not have a tour, but it was nice to have the entrance booked ahead and we did not have to wait in line.
