  • "The lines at the vatican are LONG- being able to avoid the lines and go right in via VIATOR is so worth it!!" See review
  • "Note that the museum is always crowded, so jostling is normal." See review
  • "The complex is huge with long distances to walk, so that should be considered when renting headsets." See review

The "Meet and Greet" for the Vatican Museum and Sistine Chapel was excellent. The guide met us at the designated place and took us through the process of "skipping the line" at the Museum. She made sure we all got in as expeditiously as possible.

Met a pleasant woman at a Cafe where she then walked us right into the Vatican Museum, provided us with a map and tickets and answered all our questions. This is a TRUE skip the line self guided tour. Beware some of the other skip the line tours still have you standing in long lines.

I studied all of what I was going to see at the Vatican, so I didn’t want/need a tour guide. For those who want to see the Vatican on their own and at their own pace - this is definitely for you. We met at a nearby cafe and was led directly in to the Vatican in front of the large, large line. Once inside, we were free to tour on our own. Perfect for me!

Best Decision Ever!

Our meet and greet host was on time and exactly where I was told to be. The entire process was effortless and saved me from not only the long lines but also from having to navigate the busy and confusing entrance/ticketing pavilion at the Vatican Museums! She escorted me and another couple from our designated meeting spot outside a nearby cafe (very easy to find and had a delicious, cheap lunch there before our meeting time), past the line, thru security and into the pavilion. From there she had us wait while she retrieved our entrance tickets, gave us a brief orientation to the museums and sent us in! I didn't have a lot of time to devote to seeing the Museums so I was hoping this would prove to be a way to jump right in and I was 100% correct. Best Decision Ever! Our host was polite, spoke good English and thoroughly communicated everything we needed to know before starting our self tour of the museums. 100% recommend for anyone on a tight schedule!

The day we arrived at the Vatican Museum (in late April) it was extremely busy with very long lines of people waiting to buy tickets. The guide took us straight through the entry point inside the Vatican Museums. We didn't have a lot of time and never would have made it without the tickets. The guide was professional and spoke perfect English.

Thanks to Simone and her wise advice, we managed to do the whole Vatican-Sistine Chapel & Saint Peter Basilica. After a lot of thinking, we opted for the meet and greet service. so we could do the whole thing at our own tempo. best decision ever! Simone met us right on time, in the agreed place and took us through the madness of the security and entrance of the Vatican museum.... once inside, she explained to us very clearly how to navigate inside, what was important... gave us valuable tips that help us to get the most out of our time.. we recommend this service 100%!

It was a long walk from the Tour Bus stop so se were late (I paid for the Tour but just accompanied my friend at the meeting point), the Tour guide came back to pick her up and accompany inside the Museum.She was very happy and greatly impressed...unfortunately, towards the end of ver tour, she had to fall in line (about 1km) to enter the Basilica.A great experience.
