None of the people in the group were able to find the tour guide after the garden tour. We all decided to just go into the Vatican museum and Sistine Chapel on our own . This was a waste of money

Waste of money

This was a waste of money. Twice the price of the tickets for nothing more than bypassing what turned out to be a relatively short line.

They never mailed the Tickets, didn’t refund our money. They refused to help us. They sensed other tickets after we left Rome. Pointless

Disappointed experience
YagmurInce_G
, Jul 2022
No need to go as a tour, just print the tickets and allow to enter! We had booked for 12.00 pm, and was there 10 mins before. Waited more than 30 min for everyone to arrive and go there together as a line, and after arrival waited for the tickets to be printed. It’s basically same if you waited without skip the line, and twice the price . Quite disappointing…

It would’ve been just as easy to purchase the tickets at the Vatican itself. The lines were not terribly long even for high season. The lady, who was a bit rude, led us in and handed us tickets.

A really nice experience

I was quite late with buying the tickets, so this was in my mind the best possible solution. Sure it is a bit more expensive, but the ladies were really helpful and kind, they guided us to the right directions, so really, very thoughtful. We bought inside Audioguides which I fully recommend. There was a nice surprise that Vatican Gardens were included (I missed this point, I guess). Would recommend fully :)

Got there on time for the 1030 fast pass and when I checked in I was told I could go with the 1030 group if I upgraded to a guided tour of the gardens that was Leaving at 1030. Since I didn’t pay more money I waited with the 1030 group until 1120 To be given a voucher to walk across the street to enter. I could have just waited in the line at the Vatican and got in quicker. Plus once they did hand me the voucher from the office we just walked across the street and entered by ourselves anyways. This voucher could have just been handed to me at 1030 anyways. Bunch of crap

Scam
Jeffrey_H
, Jul 2022
The whole tour guide is a scam, we paid $60 a ticket per person for a guided tour, the tour guide went and got $17 dollar garden tour tickets and gave them to the tour group. What happen after that is, they put us in a bus at the Vatican Gardens, once that tour was over, our tour guide was no where to be found. To instructions or anything, once a call was made they told us your on your own. A really terrible experience overall.

Not good at all
josh_j

DO NOT BUY THIS!!!! They sell you this price when the ticket to get in the Vatican is only €17. This is a complete money grabbing scheme - they were rude and unhelpful. Done get me wrong the Vatican is amazing and worth the visit but not via this method. There was no queues at all - it was height of season too.

When arriving the tour operator noticed my husband was a below knee amputee and advised we would have free access, she walked us up to the reception area and advised she going to process a refund! Truly appreciated as they could of just took our money! Very organised and truly kind

Sistine chapel and so lucky to get chance to see garden. Too bad no guided tours left so had to explore on our own.
