We missed our guided tour and they set us up with the next one which also included a tour of the Vatican gardens. We paid 10 euros extra, which was well worth it! Our guide was phenomenal!

Great tour, knowledgeable guide, easy check in and directions at the venue. Try not to book this with another tour elsewhere on the same day - it will detract from both as there us so much to see.

Sistine chapel is absolutely amazing, but it's totally overcrowded. Museum rooms are also interesting, but stuffy, maybe it's special to keep the masterpieces save. Of course highly recommended...
