I want to buy a guided tour of the Vatican Museums from their official website. Their options only include the museums, not the Basilica. I don't want to spend endless hours waiting in the queue for the Basilica, so does this tour entitle me to use the door that connects the museum to the basilica?
I don't want to buy a tour from a private company, because even the cheapest one is literally double the price. But short of a tour that includes the Basilica- i can't find an option to skip that queue. And there has been no consensus on travel forums on whether someone who has taken the official tour can use that door.
