What people are saying about Vatican Museums

Very good plan! We presented ourselves at the reception which is really close to the entrance to the Vatican. The hostess was very friendly and spoke French. She explained everything to us: it was great! It saved us from queuing for a very long time.

Emmanuelle picked us up promptly, and took us to almost every important monument in Rome, he parked close to everything and allowed us time to enjoy a delicious lunch in Rome. Don’t think about it, book the trip.

A no brainer, the least thing you want is spending time reinventing the wheel, skip the line and let the guides do the trick. Our experience was seamless

Skip the line and public transport in one. Just perfect. Easy, quick. Would use it again.

Highly recommended, a very comfortable and efficient way to get to know the city.
