Sistine Chapel-Fast track tickets

Sistine Chapel was the most memorable. Finding Redemption point not very clear. Should marked up clearly where to go for the fast track tickets. Group couldn’t hear what the leader was saying most of the time.

Fine for the price

It’s fine for what you pay for, make sure you’re 20 mins before the time you book because they’ll make you pay extra. The staff are not really helpful and they will try get money from you any way they can haha just get the admission tickets they offer tours but I didn’t see anyone going for it.

It would've been great to be able to download our tickets instead of trying to find the location to pick up the tickets in a city that we were unfamiliar with.

the meeting place to exchange our vouchers was so hard to find that we missed our tour; it would have been much better to have been able to print our actual tickets

Easy and simple

We took a taxi to the meeting point. It was very easy to find. We were walked to the museum and given our tickets, at which point we were on our own- which we prefer. This location had many guided tours as well, should you want to book that.

Complete waste of money !

I booked a fast track ticket but when I arrived I asked where the queue was situated. No one knew and I had to queue for over an hour! I got there at 9.30 am I asked several others in the queue if the had a fast track ticket and they didn’t have one. When I got to the Chapel I told the ticket man who just shrugged his shoulders and said there was just the one queue !!!

The overal experience was good. It was frustrating at first the coordination to get the tickets. There are multiple tours within the area. So we were unsure to which tour to go.
