Our guide, Eddie, was knowledgeable, entertaining and had a history in archeology. Our group was only 12 making us less half the size of other tour groups and quite nimble navigating the Vatican. I believe there was at least 3 times where we were able to skip lines and avoid hours of waiting as we saw others doing. A couple of times he had permission (connections?) that allowed us to go from point A to B through a restricted area. Even such things as “the best, quickest bathrooms” was something we enjoyed where others had no idea. Our time in certain areas was timed so crowds were limited however in some areas we wizzed through to stay on schedule. (What “map room”?).
I believe this trip was a very good value and we all learned a lot in 3 hours.
At my age I have decided I have more money than time. A Rome highlight.

Skip the line is the way to go! No waiting. Did not use a guide for this one. But getting in was a breeze.
