Pure disaster! We had booked a German-speaking tour for the afternoon. We were there 3 hours (!!) before the meeting time and registered. When our tour should have started we were told by the staff that our tour was canceled due to low attendance and that we should have taken an earlier tour. They tried to reach us by phone. That probably didn't work. Then please use the email address !! On the day of the tour we received systematically generated messages from Get your Guide that the tour was about to start - with no indication of a postponement! In the end, we were allowed to go on our own with German-speaking audio guides via fast-track entry to the Vatican museums and the Sistine Chapel. WE DIDN'T HAVE ACCESS TO PETERSDOM - as actually offered by Get your Guide. For us, this offer was definitely not worth it
Best Time to go is right now. The crowds and wait times aren't nearly as bad as they usually are and the guides are spending more time go in depth since they have a little more time to spend. Make sure you find a place to do your return covid test. Check with your hotel. Farmacias (Pharmacies) can be hit and miss. We went to like 4 on a row that don't do the tests. Naples was especially hard. Once you find one that will do the rapid test, they usually take literally 5 minutes and cost around 20-25 euros. In Milan it's Like 50 euros for some weird reason.
Really glad I booked this tour! Our tour guide was amazing, she was so informative and it was fruitful listening to her. She’s a great storyteller! The company was also amazing at working with me to get an extra ticket last minute bc I accidentally only bought 1 when I needed 2
The guide was perfect and essential if you want to understand what you are looking at. However, the tour does not include access to the Basilica due to covid restrictions which is not clear in the main description.
Sistine Chapel is unbelievable highly recommended a tour guide, so much to cover,so much you learn we had a well knowledge guide, Claudia good sense of humor and informative Vatican, a beauty in its self...
