The Summer Friday Night Tour is the best. less Crowded and cooler temperatures. If you can request a specific tour Guide, please ask for Debra. The whole group was overwhelmed by Debra and #39;s knowledge and caring to assure all were enlightened.
I and #39;m so glad we took the Friday night tour! It was definitely less crowded than during the day and the lighting and quiet was mellow, and much cooler than during the day. Our tour guide, Deborah, was very kind, knowledgeable, and enthusiastic. I highly recommend it.
Excellent tour with a very knowledgeable guide. The tour lasts approximately 3 hours so wear comfy shoes and take water with you as it is very hot in Rome at the moment. The only downside was being ripped off by taxis drivers. Beware because they are lined up as you leave the museum and it was dark and we were tired and just wanted to get back to the hotel. It cost 12 euros to get there and I had to barter them down to 25 to get home. It was a genuine taxi but the excuse was it costs more at night.
Linda was our tour guide and was fabulous! She was energetic, funny and very informative. She knew her history and made the three hour journey through the Vatican museum stellar and enjoyable. The tour itself is great-touches on all the most famous pieces with the benefit of skipping the long lines
To avoid the ques and the crush book this tour. It is expensive but worth every dollar. If you can use Debra as your guide from Enjoy Romeget her experience. Her knowledge and enthusiasm will make this an unforgettable experience
Alexandra our tour guide was great , she was very knowledgeable . A very small group of 12.
This was my third visit to Vatican and was my best!!!
Absolutely recommend this Friday night tour... not as crowded, and the tour guide was fantastic! What a great experience.
My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed the Friday Night Vatican Museum Tour and the tour of the Sistine Chapel. Hillary ?? was our guide, and it was clear that she is very knowledgeable and passionate about the history of the Vatican.
Wow! This tour was greatWe loved our tour guide Rosella! she was funny, smart and her enthusiasm
was contagious. We were referred to this tour after reading an article in National Geographic Traveler.
The lack of crowds and the beauty of the evening was perfect. It was a perfect introduction to our fabulous three days in Rome!
We had been to the Vatican Museums and the Sistine Chapel during normal hours, but a friend told us that we must see it at night and this tour gave us that opportunity. Our guide, Rosella, was an art historian and restorer who provided insights and understanding to what we were seeing. Guides are not allowed to accompany tours into the Chapel so we were on our own at that point but Rosella had prepared us well for our experience. Being able to observe and take in this incredible masterpiece in a small group setting, for as long as we wanted to stay, was an unforgettable experience!
I would highly recommend this night tour. There were a lot of people but personal attention was given to the group. The guide was knowledgeable and took the time to answer questions from individuals. I was amazed by the amount of visitors who were there on a Friday night.
Really enjoyed this tour. Our guide was very knowledgeable about the Sistine Chapel, and it was very pleasant visiting the museum without the crowds.
A great way to see the Vatican and it beats the craziness of the day crowds.
The night tour of the Vatican Museums and the Sistine Chapel was wonderful. Our tour guide was very informative and had many great facts and stories.
Our guide was great. Well worth the effort - 3 hours - very crowded.
The tour guide was very knowledgeable about many different aspects of the Vatican. And she never rushed us through any portion of the tour including the Sistine Chapel area.
This was a very good tour. Our guide Arianna was terrific. She was very knowledgeable and enthusiastic. We learned a lot and really enjoyed ourselves. We would highly recommend her as tour quide.
A very worthwhile tour, as long as you understand it is just a snapshot of the museums. There is so much to see and our guide was very informative. While there were lot of people there, I imagine daytime would be busier.
Our tour guide Gio was amazing! My sister and a few of our friends were in Rome for a week and did multiple tours, but Gio's tour was by far the best. Although we were jet-lagged and the tour was at 9pm, she managed to keep everyone's attention and not only managed to keep the tour spooky but also really quite funny. I am still re-telling the stories I heard on this tour and I would highly recommend this tour to anyone looking to hear a few urban legends and ancient gossip. My only recommendation is start a little earlier and make this tour longer as it was spectacular!
Simply wonderful. Art historian guide who was fabulous and incredibly well organised. A very big "thank you"
