It was not obviously...

It was not obviously shown, where to get the tickets. We went to the given address quite early on the day if the tour and first we were told to wait. After waiting, we were td to come back later again, we cant get our tickets now. And the service-employee tried to sell a tour to every customer. At the end, everything worked, but it was really laborious and annoying.

Scam - it’s not actual tickets. You have to go on a group tour the get the actual tickets for the museum. Ps don’t buy scarf or anything to cover up, they hand them out for free in the sixteenth chapel. Bg

We paid the extra money for fast track to skip the queues. Fast track does not exist! When going to collect the tickets we were so unsure of what was going on as was everyone else. I would not recommend to buy these tickets! Entry into the Vatican is only €17 per person and the rest is free

All is great a lot of memory But the price via your tour is expensive The double of the price the guide who spoke German, who took us to pick up our tickets was not necessarily kind by chastising the other tourists on their lack of discipline of course all this said in German, I speak German and therefore well understood these words , also the welcome was not top, luckily I knew why my holidays were dedicated

Great Experience!

Amazing experience! The tour representatives were very professional and ensured we arrived at the correct location to enter the Vatican. We purchased the audio guides for an additional eight euros - well worth it. We highly recommend booking the tour through Viator - the ticket office is about 200 yards from the entrance.

Always love to see the Vatican museum!! These tickets were easy to purchase and we opted for no guide. We spent 6 hours just wandering in awe.

We couldn’t make the tour due to last minute COVID delay on the train. No refund was authorized. Only a discount for another tour. No info given. Kinda sucks considering we are in a pandemic and things change at the last minute
