Before I review the actual tour, let me just give kudos to this fabulous tour company! Due to one bad thing after another debit card not working, lost on way to train station, missing train by one minute happening, we were late. The paperwork for the tour says to be there at 730am sharp and it was 10 til 8 when we got off the train near the vatican. Someone from the office came and found us and ran us to the entrance and sweet talked our way in because it was after 8am and they didn't have to allow us to enter! This was definitely beyond what they had to do for us! We were so appreciative! Now for the tour itself, our guide Cesare, he was amazing! He was very easy to understand. Also they give you an earphone to hear him even when you are a ways away from him. He quickly walked us to the Sistine chapel before there were too many people there. He left us for 20 minutes or so to absorb and appreciate the beauty of the place! I didn't understand what he meant by later it will be VERY crowded but I did soon enough! So glad he took us to the chapel first! Once we left there, I could appreciate being able to have room to move in the Sistine Chapel! Cesare has a passion for art and the history of this place and knew SO MUCH and was ready for any question! This tour is a lot of walking and there are some stairs...wear your walking shoes for sure! The vatican was amazing and I feel as though I know so much more for having been on this tour! You will see Raphaels rooms, the sistine chapel, the crypt and St Peter's Basilica, you will be ready for a sit down at the end but it will have been well worth it! After the tour is over you can go into the Jubilee area at no cost and even sit in a quiet room that holds John Paul II's remains. The room was supposed to be quiet but not everyone in there respected the rules. This has nothing to do with the tour but it, even with the chatty people, was something I was glad I did! Plus you can rest your feet for a few minutes in the peace of the place!

Great experience to the Vatican!
Knowledge and helpful guide on our route through the Vatican City before the general public.
Early start to the morning and a little pricey, but the experience is totally worth it.
Tour guide Linda was awesome and highly recommend her to others wanting fun/informational experience.
Met tour guide 1-2 blocks from Vatican entrance 7:30a.
Our tour had two visits to the Sistine chapel with first 15-20 minutes before it fills up with hundreds of people. After that we toured the other top highlights of the vatican with a small lesson of the Sistine Chapel painting hidden secrets. We then returned back to Sistine chapel for another 15-20 minutes with general public viewing shoulder to shoulder to find the hidden secrets.
Tons of history, sculptures, tapestries, and paintings throughout the tour, before our guide released our group to St. Peter's. Perfect amount of information and guided tour for a half day excursion. Saves the afternoon to relax or to head to the next highlight.

I was not so thrilled about this tour as I was into more of history and our tour guide was more of the arts...
