Είναι πραγματικά ένα σοβαρό skip the line εισιτήριο. Δεν ταλαιπωρηθήκαμε καθόλου σε ουρές σε κανένα σημείο του τουρ!! Η οδηγός μας ήξερε πάρα πολλά και μας ανέλυε τα πάντα με πολλές λεπτομέρειες. Είδαμε όλα όσα αναφέρονται στην περιγραφή του tour! Το μόνο μείον ότι σταθήκαμε για πολύ ώρα στον ήλιο πράγμα που δεν κατάλαβα γιατί συνέβη μιας και θα μπορούσε να μας δείξει τις εικόνες στο φυλλάδιο που ήδη είχε. Αλλά κατά τα άλλα ήταν πολύ γλυκιά, ευγενική και με γνώσεις οπότε τις αξίζουν πολλά μπράβο!

Firstly, our guide, Servio, is one of the funniest and wittiest people I have met in my life. He really made the Vatican come to life. His knowledge was extensive but he imparts it in such a meaningful way. I thoroughly enjoyed it. The museum itself was absolutely breath taking.

The guide was very knowledgeable and friendly. Parts of the tour did drag a bit. The time slot was from 7:30 am to 10 am, but by 9:40 am we weren’t even to the Sistine Chapel. We ended up turning our headsets in early and going to the Sistine Chapel on our own since we were heading out of Rome at 11.
