A fantastic tour and in my opinion the only way to experience the Vatican.
Our Guide Sarah was excellent and really informative with excellent English.
Highly recommended and well worth the money.

Our guide was wonderful. She manage get a diverse group from seniors to teens. The Vatican is a must see, however be warned it is always crowded. Having a guide to keep you moving and get you to the portions that you should see is important. The Vatican museums are so large that you could easily miss out on the more interesting portions of it.

The tour was wonderful! Having a guide who was an art expert made it so much more interesting than a previous group tour I had taken in the past.

Awesome tour! Our guide, Gabriella, had a deep knowledge of art history and a great personality to go with it. He made our tour of the Vatican Museums and St Peter's Basilica one of the highlights of our vacation. I highly recommend this tour. It's a great value.

This tour was absolutely excellent. We had a personal guide who proved to be very knowledgeable and kind. We would highly recommend this skip the line private tour for anyone. Other larger groups took forever to get through and I am sure did not receive the detailed information our guide provided.

We toured the Vatican with Paula, an Art Historian. She was very knowledgeable, patient, warm and I kind. My 21 year old son just graduated from college with an art history degree. He and Paula enjoyed talking at great length about all the art and architecture within the museums and St. Peter's.

This was amazing tour. The guide was so sweet and helpful. It was totally private with no other people in the tour just my husband and I. The guide was not only very educated about the art and history of the Vatican but she truly was passionate about helping us understand it to. She took time to understand what we knew and what we didn't know about art and history then added to our prior knowledge. I can't say enough nice things about her or the tour. This trip was easily worth twice as much as we paid.

Well worth the money. Our guide, Irene, was fantastic. She was very informative but friendly and considerate too. We had no waiting in queues and saw as much as is possible in 3 hours.

Our guide was excellent, very knowledgeable and knew how to navigate past the crowds. She spent an hour more than the tour stated because she was so happy to share other parts of the Vatican that she felt was important. Excellent tour!

Did not get to St. Peter's Basilica so never saw it on our trip which was disappointing.

This tour was very well organized. All my Italy tours booked through Viator have been very well organized and exceeded all my expectations. The guides have all been very knowledgable and professional. Would not ever hesitate to use them in the future!

We did a private Vatican tour and ended up just being myself, my fiancé and my brother which was the way to go. No giant groups and much more efficient, well worth the money!! Stephania was our guide and she was brilliant! Answered any questions, very detailed and helped us navigate all the crowd!

This tour was sensational and made even more so by our guide Natalia.Her knowledge of Vatican City was incredible. She shared enough of her knowledge for us to take in but not to overload us. The private tour just the 2 of us was fantastic. The skip the line let us walk straight through the entrance. It also allowed us to skip passed larger slow moving groups and bypass many of the crowds. At the end of this tour you are at the doors of St Peter's bypassing the huge queues waiting to get in here too. It was a joy to wonder through St Peter's Basilica with our new knowledge. I couldn't recommend this tour highly enough. If your holiday in Rome has one indulgence let it be this tour. It unlocked a lot of the symbolism throughout Rome!

Excellent! The tour guide Valentina was great and very knowledgable. Being able to surpass the lines was very helpful given the large crowds. The site was breath taking and having a guide made you appreciate the experience all the more.

Vincento was wonderful! In addition to a warm and friendly personality, he has an excellent grasp of English, which we appreciated, and a wealth of knowledge about Art, History, and the Vatican in particular. We spent an absorbing two hours with him and learned so much! We definitely felt like we received a great value for our money, and agree that having him guide us through the Museum was a good way to see the most important items in the collection in a limited time.

4 of us and a private guide. So knowledgeable. More than the stock tour. Focussed on what interested us while giving a great overview of all. The history learned while on the tour could not have possibly been appreciated on a self guided tour. Highly recommend spending the money for a private guide. Our trip was April 2015.
