This trip has the skip the line, so almost worth it just for this . The guide was extremely knowledgeable , however her presentation did leave me a bit overwhelmed with historical overload. This trip together with the volumes of general entrance people also felt a bit like we were falling behind our time slot slightly governed by the masses around you even in March ! I did have to switch off from the guide a bit to take in the wonders of this amazing place.

Raúl was our guide in Spanish and after a bit of a late start, we set off and had no queues to get in and past security. He was very knowledgeable and explained a lot of the history of the art and its significance and was very enthusiasatic. The museums were very busy and the Sistine Chapel was a bit of a disappointment because we were herded in like cattle and there were loads of people in little space - but that is how they organise it at the Vatican, nothing to do with the tour. Then we were taken out a side door which took us to the Basilica, where again Raúl's explanation was very useful and enjoyable. We were then left to visit the crypt and the dome on our own if we wanted, but after 3 hours we really just wanted lunch!

Took the noon tour. Yeah sure, there are a vast amount of people, but still, we didn't have to stand in line for long, which was a huge plus. Always stay close to the guide because the wireless headphones operate over Bluetooth and lose signal if you're too far away from the guide, and then you miss the vital insight you've paid for. Our tour guide had a cynical humour which was perfect for my taste.
