Waste of money

Still trying to figure out why I spent extra on a ticket that didn’t have any extra benefits. Would not recommend

Visiting Vatican museums...

Visiting Vatican museums was a great experience, what I had problem with was the staff of the agency where I had to go and take my tickets. They were really rude and unorganised. They really need to improve their behaviour!!

Being charged cash only $50 extra because I was 10 min late. The ATM in the lobby charged $100 per transaction to get that cash.

We tried to change our time slot, we got an email with okay, but at the office a rude assistant tell us that it was not possible. Bad service and bad behaviour from the man I the front desk.

Big disappointment

what is advertised as 3 different entrance tickets is just 1 ticket. you are obliged to go through the 1000 rooms of the museums before you can visit the Sistine Chapel. PLEASE NOTE: THIS TAKES 5 HOURS. when picking up the tickets, there is the option to book a guide (extra 30 euros p.p.) so that you can skip a 2 hour wait. all in all a big disappointment. YOU CANNOT JUST VISIT THE SIXTINE CHAPEL.

Very inconveinient.

Very inconveinient. Less time spent if you enter without a ticket. Less costly also. Had to wait for tickets and then get real tickets at The entry.

Amazing works of ART

Absolutely beautiful sculptures and painting. The Sistine Chapel is amazing! Hard to believe done by one artist. Masterpiece doesn't begin to describe it. Guide was a bit more talkative than needed but was very knowledgeable.

No refunds, no exceptions.

While in Rome, my brother fell down some steps at the Colesseum and was injured so we could not go to the Vatican the next day. I emailed the vendor as they did not answer the phone. The next morning, I called as well. They would not refund the tickets or offer another time since it was not within the 24hr window. If they had answered my email or the phone for that matter, the previous day, we would not have lost the money and they could have offered the spot to another group.
