This place is a scam. They will up charge you because you’re a tourist and continue to charge. Buy from the Vatican directly and save yourself the headache

Worst service ever seen. If you want to go there take another tour service.
They just make money with booking mass tours and get you through everything as fast as possible.
PS: you don‘t need a tour guide if they want to sell you one

Our tour of the Vatican itself was wonderful. We sadly though booked through Viator which we realised afterwards was a huge mistake. Significantly overcharged for tickets which cost far less on entry and we’re described as fast track skip the line etc. What in fact that means is that we had to turn up to an office in advance and register to pick up our tickets but were told on arrival to take a sticker and wait because the tickets had to be obtained first. We waited and waited and whilst our booking was at 11.30am and we’d been there 40 mins even at 11.25 we still didn’t have any tickets. Eventually a guy came out to gather everybody in the street and we all walked with him to the Vatican and he took us through the line to the waiting area where he picked up the tickets himself and handed them out. So all in all we paid extra at premium for the privilege of sitting in an office and waiting and then having somebody pick up the tickets at a completely empty ticket office where there were no queues and nor were there queues outside in the entrance area. Worst part of it was when I spoke to the guy who booked us in and complained about the experience he told me twice “that’s your problem”. I asked him where he learned customer service and after some discussion and me telling him I would write a glowing review he apologised. Best advice is definitely go to the Vatican as well worth it and fabulous but avoid Viator which is just another rip off merchant squeezing tourists unfairly. Best thing we did was book directly with the Colosseum via its website and no issue at all and paying face value for our tickets.

we bought with my girlfriend 2 tickets with a french guide in vatican museum price was like 83 euros total, 10 minutes before the visit i receive a call from a lady who told me no french guide, so she gave me 2 normal tickets, with no guide, simple visit, price on head about is 21 euros each so 42 euros total, they took 83 euros on my bank account this morning. I called the lady in Rome, she told me that she will refund us 10 euros each so 20 euros, so im gonna pay 63 euros for 2 tickets, instead of 42 euros, price on their website. This a pure scam, a theft from them,
i paid 83 euros for non available tickets because of them first, and now They want me to pay 63 euros instead of 42 euros, whitch is the normal price. i just cant believe it, i really dont care about 20 30 euros, its ok museum were awesome, but people trust me, these people are really not trustworthy

Utter worthless. My your was booked via HeadOut who used this worthless company to facilitate the tour. The tour was €42 each for 2 adults. Tour was supposed to start at 3:30 and we didn't start until 4:00. They decided to wait for people who were late. So a tour that was supposed to be 2.5 hours ended up being 1 hour 40 minutes when it was all said and done. The guide was supposed to be English speaking but her English was so bad that you must assume you would have been better off if she spoke Swahili. Regardless she missed several key elements of the Vactican museum and really didn't focus on key facts either. The tour 100% was not as described. After the Sistine Chapel she was supposed to lead us to St Peter's Bascillia and didn't. Instead she lead us to the exit and left. Several people were upset. She wasted a lot of time on nonsense that didn't matter. This is a great scam. Because I booked on Headout and they used these fools. The tour guide said if you want the Basillica book a tour for tomorrow. She essentially was taunting us and ended way too early.

Only 6 people followed the individual tour through vatican Museum and sistine Chapel - Christina was a great leader spein german as well as english! Due to only few tourists she could explain much better and could stop at points of interest and explain in excellent detail! I loved it and I only can propose to use this tour type "privat tour"

The ticket office was difficult to find. We wandered for about fifteen minutes trying to find the place.

Once we arrived, the guy behind the desk didn’t greet me or anything. Just said “do you have a reservation”. Yes i do. I showed him the reservation online. He then said have a seat it will take him 5-10 minutes to print the ticket. Why wasn’t it printed already?

Honestly can’t believe it took ten minutes to print a single piece of paper. Thankfully we arrived to the office an hour before our entry time.

The ticket i booked was 1015. But the ticket that was printed shows 1030. Not sure why there is a difference to be honest. Even if the guy said we could enter early, the difference is odd and frankly makes little sense.

Bonus, the departure point has a toilet you can use free of charge.

Fantastic experience! The museum was a pure joy to walk through - the staff and security were very kind and the artefacts displayed were phenomenal! Not to mention the absolute beauty of the Sistine Chapel - it was an absolute dream to see it live in the flesh!

We were given mixed information about what our ticket included and when we could arrive from. We had a ticket on our phone but on arrival were told we had to redeem it elsewhere. After 15 minutes wandering around we found the tour guide reception and we ended up nearly having to pay €20 extra each because we missed our slot. Luckily the Vatican staff were really kind and helpful and let us in anyway. Don’t know how the tour was because we missed it but the Vatican is beautiful. Wouldn’t recommend using trip adviser for prebooking tickets as we had a similar story at the colosseum.

Dear Customer, Thanks for your review. You have booked the skip-the-line ticket to Vatican Museums and Sistine Chapel and you have received via mail just a voucher for reservation. It's clearly written you need to go to the meeting point before the entrance to get the ticket. Unfortunately you can only be 5 minutes late, otherwise at the Vatican entrance they deny you access. We are happy you enjoyed the visit to the Museums and Sistine Chapel, very beautiful and interesting. We hope to have a second chance for your next trip in Rome. Warm regards
