This review is based on the experience of booking 8 tours in total for this trip all with GetYourGuide, each and every one of them completed in a fashion timely manner. This was booked by mistake for a Spanish speaker, we speak Spanish but our guide speaks English too, anyways don’t expect much about the hostesses because they will not attend the audience. Tickets for the audience are free. They just basically make the line for you to grab your ticket and take you from the hotel to the line. Is it worth? Depends on you and how much time do you have to do this. I sent an email with 1 month in advance to get out tickets and we got it, unfortunately we didn’t had time to pick them up… with this tour I wasn’t worry about it. Second, next day we had another tour at the same place St. Peter’s basilica, we schedule an Uber for 4 of us and they charge us about €40 Because they pick us very early and with ticket in hand for us, guide explained what to expect.

An almost divine experience

It was almost perfect. It was great to have the support of an agency with the invitations, a guide to indicate the fastest way and the best places to sit. The only drawback was the time they came for us. The day before we did not receive any confirmation of the booking, and we trust what was written in the reservation, that is, that we would be picked up at the hotel 1 hour in advance. Only they arrived 1h30min. before and without any warning. As a result, we had to run and not have breakfast. I recommend that the agency start sending a confirmation the day before with details about the schedule.

The truth is that there is no one to help you or give you any suggestions on what to do when you enter. I recommend that you take a taxi and it's cheaper and the same!
