Great tour well organised with good guide. You see everything you need to see. However at the end of this tour you can join a separate queue to take the stairs or lift to the top of the dome which attracts a small charge made by the Vatican. Take this option you get to see just how big the Vatican state is the views over Rome are amazing and should not be missed.

It was fantastic to walk past 100's of people waiting to get in! Our guide walked us through the Vatican and was informative and helpful. We thoroughly enjoyed the tour.

Tour was great and guide was great.
Meeting place for the tour was unorganised.
The organisers were late, then because of the amount of people for the groups you didn't know were you were supposed to be. Lady organiser was very rude.

The meeting point arrangements seemed disorganised but it all worked ok so I guess there a reason to leave the system as it is. The queues were massive for non tour members so was definitely worth getting booked in advance. The guide was exceptional - very knowledgable and approachable and delivered the information at an appropriate level. The crowds were massive but our guide got us to the best view points etc.

The visit was amazing. it is a lot of walking and there were no rest times or toilet stops built into the programme which was a shame. we waited a long time to set off because some people hadn't read the instructions and were not appropriately dressed for the visit. i was disappointed that we were expected to stand in the sun waiting for them. we found it very hard to find the initial meeting point as no address was given. an indication as to which exit to take from the metro would have helped along with directions from there. the photo of the meeting place was not helpful because the large pink flags were not there

Delores was terrific. Unfortunately, we felt rushed through the Vatican museums and the Sistine Chapel. It was too crowded and we had to keep moving. That meant too much time in the Basilica. However, I am glad to have booked online to bypass the ridiculous line outside!

Reduce the size of the group. Couldn't hear our guide if you were in the rear. We had more than 50 in our group.

A highlight of my visit to Rome. A knowledgeable guide who managed to keep the group together in the sea of people that was the Vatican Museums. A great tour, an excellent way to see the Vatican. The guide could have told us that at the end of the tour, he'll take us to a souvenir shop, instead of just talking about the house in which Michelangelo died. Honesty would have left a better impression.

Tour guide was excellent. Very knowledgeable and quite pleasant. Only issue was the volume of people inside the Vatican museums. It was impossible to spend anytime appreciating anything specific, as the guide needed to keep the group moving through the thick crowds. The Basilica was amazing!!! It was more manageable crowd-wise because of it's incredible dimensions, and made the entire tour worthwhile.

It was a pretty fast tour. I wish it was a bit more longer but the guide was excellent.

Our guide was amazing. It was very busy and as a result you can't just stop and take the time to really look This however is not the tours fault

Great tour, just very overpriced

Its a good tour but the whole area is very crowded. Walking up the ramp into the Museum & again through the Tapestry section of the museum was actually quite unsettling with the crush of people in a small space. Not tickitaly's fault but management of the museum. I would say it was a serious emergency evacuation hazard. People were having panic attacks being crowded into such a small hot stuffy space. I could do without the tour of the Museum at the start and would have preferred to go to see the Chapel and St Peter's first and have the museum to go through at my leisure.
