It is always best to get the skip the line tickets and tour for the Museums and St. Peter's. There is so much to see that it requires a knowledgeable guide. Do your research before committing.

This experience was fantastic. From the booking, communication, guide to the tour itself everything was superb. Our guide,Gabriel, was so informative with such interesting knowledge at his fingertips. We saw so much but didn’t feel rushed. We felt free to ask questions which he answered clearly and confidently. The three hours flew by and we then returned to the basilica to visit extra places he had pointed out to us. We even climbed the steps to the top of the dome. Thank you everyone involved. I highly recommend this tour(VIP early morning museum and basilica).

We had Diana as our tour guide for our experience.The tour was incredibly interesting and you could tell that she was knowledgeable and passionate about all things Vatican Museum, Sistine Chapel & St. Peter's Basilica. She was really accommodating throughout the tour and gave us free time in certain areas so we could take photos. Overall, my friends and I were really happy with the experience and would definitely recomend this tour.

Loved the early access! Note as others have said this is not a tour run by a “local” but is part of a company which helps in terms of organization but if you have done other Airbnb experiences where you get a sense of the local flavor and personal side this is not that. But our guide was very knowledgeable and we crammed a lot into the time!

You get to skip the line and are directed to the most important areas in Vatican City. Some basic information is delivered throughout the tour along with some theological interpretation of the bible. Would've preferred more facts and historicity, and less opinion about Catholicism.
