We found this particular tour thoroughly enjoyable and extremely interesting. Our tour guide who was a young American girl, can't remember her name, was amazing and so knowledgeable about all to do with the Vatican city and the history. This is the second time I have done this tour whilst visiting Rome and the second time around certainly didn't disappoint.
what a beautiful place to visit.. I am so happy i was able to do this trip and take this tour. Our tour guide was amazing he knew everything about the Vatican City. I walked out of there with so much knowledge and history. I will defiantly return again one day.
I would recommend this tour anytime! Vatican City is overwhelming with all the crowds and so much to see. The tour is organized well and our tour guide was great! I would have gotten lost in there and would have had no clue what I'm looking at!
Our tour guide Sabrina was very knowledgable and quite precise on history, directions and safety. I would highly recommend this tour to those planning to visit Vatican City. Sabrina kept us focused and was truly a Gem! Lov ,love , loved this tour!
Igor was our tour guide and he was the best I have ever had. He should be an Art History professor; so much knowledge about everything. Not just the art, everything about Vatican City. 4 hours long and I could have gone longer. Simply awesome! Thanks Igor!
Our family of four adults had a superb time in Rome. The apartment we rented was just two minutes from the Piazza Navona to our east and the piazzas Campo de Fiori and Farnese to our west and a convenient taxi rank was just below our apartment. The Vatican City was only a 15 minute walk away. We saw all the normal tourist sites, but were glad we booked entry to them on-line ahead of the holiday; it saved us an enormous amount of time. Dining Al Fresco all day was also a real treat, with the waiters at all the different eating places, welcoming, warm and willing to help. I've never experienced this type of service anywhere else in the world. It was a pleasure to dine out. Holidaying in Rome was a delight and pleasure and we'll be going back, even though we didn't throw coins in the Trevi Fountain. If you want an experience greater than a ride on an amusement park big dipper, go for a taxi ride, you'll come out of it whiter than snow. The apartment we rented was very comfortable and I'd choose it again, but I hope that by then the owners will have update the out of date toilet facilities. To top it all off we had an unexpected visit to a grand opera concert of well known arias given by superb professionals. ROME - I wish I was back there.
AWESOME TOUR! We made a last minute decision to go to Rome from Florence! We wanted to visit Vatican City but we knew we didn't have a lot of time! We booked this tour the day before we arrived, took a taxi from the train station to The Vatican City location we were directed to and when we got to the area, the line up was miles long!!! YIKES! We went to the location on our voucher, met our tour guide (very fluent in English) and we literally walked right in!!! Our tour guide was amazing, she had tapestries with pictures of some of the incredible art we were about to see and she explained all the stories about them...it totally made us realize what we were about to see ( in the Sistine Chapel, no talking, no photographs allowed) if we didn't hear her stories, we would have missed out on the AWESOMENESS of what we envisioned! ABSOLUTELY BEAUTIFUL, HEART WARMING AND VERY SPIRITUAL! This tour is worth every dollar, and when the tour is over, you can still stay in Vatican City at your leisure! THANKS VIATOR FOR MAKING OUR EUROPEAN VACATION AMAZING!!!!!
Natasha our guide was fantastic!!! We learned so much. This was a must have tour for anyone that visits vatican city!
Very interesting and the guide was very enthusiastic and knowledgeable about the Vatican City. My husband and daughter enjoyed the tour as well and even though there were so many people there it was still a great organized tour to be on and no waiting in lines.
We had an excellent guide who spoke English very clearly and who was very knowledgeable. Although Vatican City was extremely crowded our tour group was small enough that we were able to hear and see everything we wanted to and avoiding some of the extremely long wait lines was well worth the cost of the tour.
Excellent tour guide amazingly. Quick no wait and so informative well worth the money thank you so much this is the way to see the Vatican City
Tour guide a joy to be with - she was friendly and informative. Vatican City should not be missed if visiting Rome!
The small group Vatican tour was very good. The guide provided the group with a great amount of insight to the arts of the museum and the history of Vatican City. Having the chance to see the Sistine Chapel and St Peter's is a once in a lifetime opportunity and this was the best way to do it. We really had the chance to learn about what was happening at the time.
We really enjoyed our tour around the Vatican with our superb guide Rachel on 9/9/13. She was friendly, professional, enthusiastic and full of knowledge. She even took time to get to know us by name. We booked a few tours with Dark Rome but this was our favourite by far. It was really worth the early start to have seen such beautiful works of art in a small group minus the crowds. An added bonus was the up grade to include breakfast in the Pinecone Court Yard within the Vatican City, a truly memorable experience, thanks again to our guide Rachel 10/10! Bridget and Sheila
Very informative tour that met all of our expectations. We were very happy to have pre-booked a tour of the Vatican after arriving in Vatican City in the morning and seeing how many blocks the line stretched for those waiting to buy tickets to enter. We met by the entrance and walked right in with the group, seemingly saving a lot of time. Our guide seemed to have a passion for the Vatican and was very knowledgeable. St. Peter's and the Sistine Chapel were gorgeous. I will say that the Sistine Chapel, while beautiful, did not provide the most relaxing atmosphere. It was very crowded and consistently had guards walking around 'hushing' people and moving them out of walkways. I understand why they had to do this, however, it does provide for a somewhat intimidating atmosphere. That had nothing to do with this specific tour, however. They do a great job and this is a fantastic place to visit!
