The perfect tour of a majestic piece of art, culture and history. Our guide was awesome.
This was a great way to be introduced to the Vatican. Our tour guide was terrific, fun, and knowledgable.
It was amazing to be able to visit the Vatican Museum and St. Peter's Basilica on Good Friday. Without the tour there is no way we would've been able to see all the highlights in such a limited timeframe. Definitely more than I could've ever expected, and so thankful to have a guide to show us the important pieces. Would have liked to spend more time in the Sistine Chapel though.
Our tour guide was phenomenal! He was very knowledgeable and helpful. We are so thankful we booked this tour through Viator. Absolutely wonderful and money well spent.
the tour guide whose name was Julia was very knowledgeable and gave a great tour. i highly recommend her!
GREAT, and worth every penny. The guide was very knowledgeable and we never waited. Only way to do the Vatican when you consider that the line to get the free tickets was close to 2hr long and that only gets you in to the Basilica.
our guide Sylvia was so passionate and was full of information the tour was amazing, thank you
Guide was very knowledgeable. I highly recommend this skip the line tour can't emphasize significance of the ' skip the line' aspect of tour. Worth every euro!
Tour guide incredibly knowledgeable. I just wished we knew there were restrictions on Wednesday. We would have booked for another day.
This tour was amazing we have been so lucky with your all of your tour guides on every tour in Salzburg, florence with Gloria and David in Rome was so entertaining and Knowledgeable.Regards Kevin and Patricia Savage
This tour was fantastic. So much history and very spiritual. Stunning! Sarah the guide was lovely and so knowledgable.
We are so glad we booked this tour the skip the line option is the only way to go. Our tour guide was informative, funny, and was able to navigate the group in a way to avoid the other tourists. Highly recommend!
Fantastic tour by Sarah N. Very well organised and well worth the money. Tour guide could not have been better - organised, helpful, so enthusiastic, very knowledgeable, friendly, very good spoken English. Absolutely loved every minute of this tour - St Peter's Basilica and Sistine Chapel are both breath-taking. Can't wait to go back to tour other parts of the Vatican.
David our tour guide well what can I say.

Our tour guide Shannon was very knowledgeable about the Vatican Museums, the Sistine Chapel, Raphael's Room and St Peter's Basilica although St. Peter's was closed due to a mass on Thursday. we visited during holy week Shannon brought pictures and showed us the pictures before entering the Sistine Chapel and St Peter's Basilica. Shannon provided us with information on St. Peter's so that after our tour we were able to visit on our own via a secret access from the Sistine Chapel and see the beauty of this Basilica. When our tour finished we were astounded to see the length of the line-ups just to get into St Peter's. Taking the tour allowed us to get the explanations and to ask questions in a small group setting without spending hours waiting in line for only a part of the tour.
lots packed into the tour. Excellent for background information. Very pleasant guide.
They are not kidding when they are saying skip the line. we got to the Vatican at 9:30 and there was a 5h wait line for the people who didnt take the tour, i felt bad for them, it was a total waste of time. our group got in without any waiting and the tour was a lot of fun. it is very crowded inside, to the point where i was holding my wife's hand but didn't see the rest of her... also, don't bring any big backpacks, they will ask you to put them in a locker. we had a school backpack and it was too big.
Also, in every tour you will get a wireless unit to put around your neck and a pair of in-ear headsets which can be annoying for 3-4 hours, so I suggest bringing your own headset my iPhone headsets worked perfectly. highly recommended tour!
Our excellent guide Barbara gave us an excellent tour of the museums, Sistine Chapel and St Peter's Basilica. Barbara's knowledge of the Vatican is unsurpassed and the 3 hour tour was excellent. Thoroughly enjoyable and highly recommended.
