Our impression of the Sistine Chapel was it is overwhelming. Enjoyed having a tour that prepared us ahead of actually visiting the chapel. It made our time in the chapel, museum and basilica so much more meaningful. We visited in late October when the weather was in the 70s. A much better time than in summer with heat an crowds.

Stefano was our guide and he was wonderful. He was knowledgeable, entertaining and had a great personality. The pace was perfect. We would highly recommend the tour!

We learned so much that if we had done it on our own and waited on the long lines we would have been wasting our time. Worth every penny.

We toured at 9:15 on Monday, October 28 and our guide was incredible. I had some problems with keeping up with the group and she never made me feel like I was inconveniencing her. Her knowledge and insights into the art was an added bonus. This tour is a must see for Christians and all religions as it is truly an unbelievable experience. If there is one down side to the tour is the lack of wheelchairs. This limits so many people; how sad. There are numerous staircases to navigate. All in all a wonderful day with our guide.
