My Review
Unless you're a history or art major or educated fan, YOU NEED A GUIDE in order to understand why, where and whom, for maximum enjoyment. I learned about Viator about 2 weeks before our trip. I started to order the Vatican tour so many times and then wondered if the reviews were real and if they'd be accurate. I literally made up my mind right before we walked out of the house to the airport and booked 3 tours. Our tour guide had been in Rome for about 4 years and was knowledgeable and full of details that made the experience unique!!! The money spent is so worth it.

He was passionate, knowledgeable, full of details and had great command of the language. He assigned participants in our group to stand in as emperors, gladiators and vestal virgins. This tactic imprinted details in our heads that were recalled as we went along in the tour. He made the experience unique!!! The money spent is so worth it. I'm an over-the-top, picky customer and I just keep gushing about how much the experience was enhanced when you have insider details. Just do it!

Unless you're an art major or educated fan, YOU NEED A GUIDE in order to understand why, where and whom, for maximum enjoyment. I learned about Viator about 2 weeks before our trip. I started to order the Accademia and Uffizi tour so many times and then wondered if the reviews were real and if they'd be accurate. I literally made up my mind right before we walked out of the house to the airport and booked 3 tours. We had different guides for each gallery. Both were knowledgeable, passionate and full of details that made the experience unique!!! We particularly loved the guide for our Uffizi tour, and the woman who checked us in and shared her love of Florence. As the Uffizi guide would say, "Believe me when I tell you..." the money spent is so worth it. I'm an over-the-top, picky customer and I just keep gushing about how much the experience was enhanced when you have insider details. Just do it!
