    Skipping the line is absolutely worth the cost!

    We booked our tickets with Get your Guide the day before our visit to the Vatican, and are so happy we did! We arrived at 9am and were astounded by the crowds of people with skip-the-line reservations or no tickets. The lines seemed to have no ends, but because of special partnerships between the Vatican museum and tour operators, we were able to enter as a group within 10 minutes of getting in line, including passing through security. In the heat of June, this was especially appreciated. The experience itself is unparalleled. It’s crowded and long, but unbelievable to see 2500 Etruscan artifacts, frescos by the greats Michaelangelo and Raphael, and learn about the church’s influence on culture for the last millennia. Highly recommend both the tour and this operator (as well as visiting St Peters Basilica—for free—afterwards and climbing up the dome for a fantastic view of all of Vatican City).

    Wonderful breathtaking experience

    My family and i had no issues finding the meeting place & the guide. E were taken to the front of the queue and then left to explore on our pwn, The Vatican museums never fail to impress me . The Sistine chapel causes shivers gown my spine as i marvel and the beauty and talent all around. I would recommend the tour to everyone. We hired the audio tour guides which worked well as we were not restricted to time.

    Great feeling while skipping a very long line!!

    Easy to find, did what the app said and skipped the long snake line like we were VIPs! It was a little disorganized upon arrival. They have different lines for different guides. We waited about 10 mins in a line and we we got to the desk they said we were in the wrong line, meaning we had to wait another 10 mins in the other line- and there were no indications as to which line was which. Other than that- superb!!!! Tips: on your voucher you have a code for ex, 2A, 3A.. this indicates which group you belong to. Go to a representative at the front of the line and ask if you're in the right line or not. Enjoy!!!
