What people are saying about Vatican Museums

Beautiful and amazing but overwhelming. I would definitely recommend.

There is so much to see and so many people it does become overwhelming. The guide was great and informative. I noticed the sound system did not work as well the farther I was from him so I made sure I was close to him so I could hear everything. I heard a little tip that it's better to go on this tour later in the day (2pm etc) because there are not as many people and you still get the full tour. I would recommend doing that because we went earlier in the day and we felt like a herd of cattle plowing through the massive amounts of people.

Very knowledgeable guide and excellent tour.

Our guide Marie-Terese took us through the skip the line entrance on a very busy day . Once hooked up with our radio she pointed out all the most relevant things to see in the short time ( 3 hours) we had with her . You could spend a week there and still not see everything! She managed to keep us all together during our tour and at the end of the tour gave us some usefull pointers to see other things . We went up into the dome which was amazing .

The tour was really good but was unable to get pictures as so busy.

The tour guide was excellent. There was lots of information. It took a while before we actually left to go to the places and then it was so busy inside that we were unable to take the time to look at the things or get pictures. There was so many people inside the chapel and the museum that it was becoming dangerous and a health and safety matter due to many people pushing and getting hurt.

Skip the line worked extremely well but meeting point info a bit vague

As for St Peters Basillica we could not find any skip the line information where to go etc. Owing to the queue being extremely long we were unable to go inside.Disappointing. However we were very pleased with our access to the Vatican museum and Sistine Chapel.

Mina was a fantastic guide - totally recommend him

We had Mina as our guide. He's friendly, passionate about the place and knowledgeable. I wished we could have spent more time with him get into the details, but 3 hours is a very short time to learn about thousands of years.
