Only 4 people in our group. We were the very first people into the Sistine Chapel. Spectacular to see without hordes of people. Highly recommend this tour. Most of the other tours were very large.

We thoroughly enjoyed this tour. Our guide was awesome! With the early entry we were the first to step into the Sistine Chapel that morning. What a wonderful way to start the day!
