This a a great tour for those who want to learn the basic information surrounding the historical and famous parts of Vatican City. The meeting point was easy to find, and is located in an area that is not overly crowded. The Skip the Line aspect of this tour is well worth the money. The museum was very crowded, and it was very easy to lose track of your group, so it is important to pay attention to the tour guide, and to keep an eye out for fellow group members in order to avoid being separated. The tour guide provided a good amount of information that was not overly religiously oriented. However, it was, at times, difficult to hear the tour guide even through the ear-piece radio system due to surrounding noise. Once in the Sistine Chapel, it is mandatory for women to cover shoulders, so be sure to bring along something that can be used in order to comply with this rule. Overall, the tour was of good length not too long, and not too short and provided us with adequate information and access to all important parts of the museum. I feel that the tour would be better off with a slightly smaller group size less than 20 people and a better, more comfortable ear-piece radio system that allows visitors to hear everything the tour guide has to say. All in all, I would recommend this tour to everyone who plans on visiting Vatican City.
This package of tours is an excellent choice, and was overall, the highlight of our trip. The first tour compromises of an easy going walk through the old part of Rome, with stops at the Trevi Fountain, the Pantheon, and Piazza Navona. The tour guide provided a good amount of information, and it was easy to understand her. The group size was adequate. The second tour compromises of a Skip the Line tour of the Colosseum. However, prior to the Colosseum, the group is led to a small basilica just near the Colosseum. While this basilica is nice, I would have rather had more time to explore the Colosseum, and the area surrounding it. The tour inside the Colosseum was great, but a bit more time to explore the Colosseum area would have been nice. We decided to skip the third tour, the Rome Night Tour, as we were far too tired to even consider going on it, and due to the fact that it is necessary to wake up around 5 or 6AM in order to be well rested to go on the Capri Trip, which starts around 7:45AM. The Capri Trip was easily our favorite of this package. The Capri Trip was very well organized, and all tour guides were a pleasure to have due to their personality, being clear and easy to understand, and the amount of great information they provided. The boat ride to Capri is average, but in order to exit the boat more quickly, sit in the back of the boat the seats closest to where you enter the boat in Naples. Lunch is included on this tour, so it is better to avoid buying a large meal at the stop the bus makes around one hour into the trip, or anywhere in Capri in order to take advantage of this included lunch. One of the best parts of the Capri Trip was the chair lift ride 10 euros per person to the top of Anacapri. Once at the top, you are treated to an unbelievable view of the Gulf of Naples, and the Tyrrhenian Sea. While it would be great to have an extra hour to explore Capri, the bus brings you to your hotel past dark, between 9:15PM - 10:00PM.
Very well arranged by Viator. Hotel pick up on time. Quality transportation. Local guide could be more attending to details, less involved in selling her book and dvd
