Vatican Tour

We are booked on the week in florence, venice ,rome in April
We just received an email that the private nighttime tour of the Vatican has been canceled and we will be doing a morning tour while the Vatican is open to all
Has this happened to anyone else on this tour?

    It didn't happen to us though we went the first night in Rome which completely changed our 3 day Rome itineray. Tauck is at the mercy of the Vatican. I believe either the website and/or the Green Book mentioned this possibility. I always assumed that the morning tour, if necessary, would happen before the regular tourist hours. Viator , LivItaly, etc. have such "before hours" tours ("Get early access into the Sistine Chapel to admire Michelangelo's amazing frescoes one hour before the general public") so they must be available. You might want to call Tauck to confirm the Vatican museum visit details.

    Remember, there are two "Vatican" tours- one of St. Peters Basilica and Square done during normal visiting hours, and the other, the tour of the Vatican Museums and Sistine Chapel after (or before?) hours.

    The online itinerary states, "subject to availability and day of the tour may change."
