Had the Vatican Museum and Sistine Chapel Tour in mid-February 2019. Our tour guide was a 30ish woman that was overly focused on some of the art work and took so much time that there was no time left to appreciate St. Peter's Basilica. We spent way too much time on the way to the Sistine Chapel as she droned on and on and on about some of the art work, particularly the Raphael works in one of the Papal Apartments leading to the Sistine Chapel. Please do not misunderstand me, the paintings by Raphael were something that deserved time to see and appreciate but when four or five other tours passed us by while she continued to talk about them it got way too long. By the time we got to the Sistine Chapel we were well into the late afternoon and wanted to see the Basilica and its masterpieces as well so we ended up with less time in the Sistine Chapel than we spent with Raphael in the papal apartment. So, she did not manage our time very well. When you make a once in a lifetime trip and get limited time on some of the most important places in history it is a bit frustrating.
Very glad we booked our tour with Maximus of the Vatican Museum and Sistine Chapel. We were very pleased with our experience. My wife and I are so very grateful our very experienced guide carefully chose a selection of great works and guided us through the crowds on a tour which was memorable and meaningful rather than comprehensive, which would have been exhausting in such a rich environment. We loved how our guide was knowledgeable and human enough to turn names of great artists like Michelangelo and Raphael into human characters, and traced their development in the works we were seeing, as well as helping us to understand how the museum developed. By the time we got to the actual works, we didn't need to search for details - we knew what we were looking for!
