Rome/Florence/Venice in late November

Jump to last reply

First trip to Italy coming up in November. Fingers crossed for good weather & smaller crowds. Family of 3 (including 13 yr. old daughter) & looking forward to every second of it (well, except for the flight)! My question has to do with "skip the lines" & "guided tours" at the Vatican Museums & St. Peter's. We would love to be part of a small group tour with a knowledgable (English-speaking) guide. I realize that even with a "small group" tour we'll still be amongst huge crowds of other "small group tours." I've looked at so many different companies, rating websites, & tour books that I've scared myself! Tour books say stay away from rating websites because the reviews are mostly "bought," rating websites have a dizzying array of what looks like the same tour listed at up to six different prices. We just want to be able to see & appreciate as much as we can with no hidden costs or other surprises or waiting all day in line. If anyone has any REAL experience with a REAL company they're willing to share, I'd REALLY appreciate it!
Thank you!
