Guided Vatican Tours

hi there, I've researching the "skip the line" tours of the vatican. Looking for feedback on your experiences, darkroom and citywonders advertise that they are 2 of the official partners so they get you in earlier (can't tell who the 3rd partner is)
Would you recommend these tours? I found tons of others, some don't mention that you have to pay an additional 20€ for the museum fees.
appreciate feedback

You can skip the lines at the Vatican Museums without signing up for a tour. If you really want a tour, fine, but if you just want to skip the queue, the easiest and cheapest way to do it is to buy the tickets online at mv.vatican.va . They also have various early-entry-with-breakfast options, either with or without a guided tour. The Vatican's own tours are probably cheaper than those of the private companies you mention. They have many different options for those, also. There is also a Friday-evening opening possibility in the busiest months of the year, which is less crowded than any of the daytime visits. It also is sold with and without a tour.

We took Walks Of Italy. We were in early before everyone. No additional charges and was worth every penny.

DItto. Worth every penny! I did the one where you are first, first first -- if you do that one be careful -- if you leave the vatican with the group and go to the Basilica, you can't go back to the Vatican museums. It was still worth it to me, because the SC is the highlight of my trip, and to be in there with less than a hundred other people is just amazing... but kinda bummed not to have a tour of the vatican included...

Federica was very nice an informative. No waiting in line to go in. It was nice to pass the big tour groups and she gave us a short tutorial before entering the
Sistine Chapel. You are not suppose to talk in there.
