The guide was okay. You can't really dig deep with a group. But the group size was larger than "up to 8" as advertised. It was more like 12-14. Over all, it was fine.

Enjoy a 3-hour semi-private tour of the most important museum in the world - the Vatican Museums. Indulge yourself in the world of art and witness the famous masterpieces in the hallway and the Pinacoteca art gallery with a fast access entry with your tour guide.

Millions of people come to visit the Vatican City every year purely to see the artworks of a few famous artists like those of Leonardo Da Vinci, Rafael, Titian, Giorgio Vasari, and many others. Take a ride through the events of the past and plunge into a never-seen-before journey of the Vatican. Apart from the paintings, geographic maps, and sculptures, you get to witness the pearl of the Vatican – the Sistine Chapel. Get lost in its interiors and the frescoes are sure to take your breath away.

You will experience all this with the help of a tour guide who will tell you all about these iconic attractions and help you have a cozy experience throughout your small group tour.
