St. Peter's Basillica-are tour guides worth it?

Jump to last reply

We are booking tours of the Vatican Museum and the Sistine Chapel. I am trying to decide if I should buy the tour that includes the Basillica or if we can just see that on our own. Does the tour guide add a lot to the visit?

We are looking at Italy with Us for booking the tour. The student discount is much greater than Walks of Italy.

I believe that by choosing the one that includes the Basillica tour we will avoid long lines to enter the Basillica after our tour of the Museum and Sistine Chapel.

This will be the end of May. We have a request in for the Scavi Tour-so if we are lucky enough to get that tour we will end in St. Peter's anyway?

Thanks for Any help!
