This was the highlight of my time in Rome! Our private tour guide was incredible! She is an archeologist and Art history is a passion. Because of her extensive knowledge our time in the Varican was truly amazing and full of incredible insight to what we were looking at. We were a group of 3 friends so we opted for this private skip the line tour and money well spent. I highly recommend this type of tour, you won't be disappointed
Our guide was great. She had so much information and insight and a sense of humor as well
AWESOME TOUR!!! Worth the price - we were a group of 6 with a private tour guide, Alessandro or Alex and he was great! So informational and the art history lesson he gave us will last a lifetime. The Sistine Chapel is Breathtaking! Vatican City/Country is worth the visit, I look forward to going back one day!
Absolutely fantastic - we were able to customize our tour based on what we really wanted to see. Our tour guide was kind and accommodating. It was a VERY busy day at the Vatican that day but we still had a good time and an amazing experience. I would highly recommend the private tour.
Chiara, our guide, was so knowledgeable!! She made everything come to life!!! She gave us a terrific tour and it truly was the highlight of our trip!!
Very knowledgeable and passionate tour guide! My mom is handicapped and used a walker and our guide was patient and accommodating.
Absolutely fantastic and highly recommended. Our guide was excellent - we had a private party of 8 and didn't have to queue at all. Our guide was very knowledgable and pitched the tour at the right level. We learnt so much and all enjoyed it immensely. We had an age range of 10-70 and all had a fab experience.
This is a fabulous store in archive was very helpful and pleasant to be with. It's a lot to see in a short amount of time so be prepared to be exhausted. We are young and very active people up and at one point starting to feel a little light headed because and they can be quite warm inside. But I would highly recommend this to work for another private tour through this company they are excellent.
When it said private tour, I did not expect to have our very own tour guide! Her name is Ellena. She spoke and understood English very well. Our taxi driver had us there late so we had to rush to the entrance. She was very hospitable asking if we would like to rest a moment before starting the tour. She taught us a lot about the paintings in the Sistine Chapel prior to going in and so we were able to just walk around and take it all in. She allowed us to go at our own pace as she would follow us versus us trying to keep up with her. Any question we had she knew the answer. When I lost my glasses in our taxi, she even went as far as to talk to our hotel on our behalf to see if the glasses were returned there. I would highly recommend not only Viator to my friends, but if it was possible to request a particular tour guide we would pick her, hands down!
Our guide was fantastic. Very knowledgeable as well as personable. I would definitely recommend this method of touring the Vatican to my friends.
Our guide, Giorgia Bernagozzi, was excellent.....very informative and very kind and helpful. We want to return to Rome and will request Giorgia as our guide. She was the best! Dr. Gerald F. Abbott, Boston
The private tour while expense, was worth it. Our guide was spectacular and shared so much information. I highly recommend it.
Although I don't remember the name of our guide, he was fantastic, a true historian. We couldn't have spent three hours any better. Great tour!
This was OUTSTANDING! Our tour guide was extremely knowlegeable and we had firsthand views of everything. Our tour was first thjing in the mornign so we were the first to enter the Vatican museum and avoided many large crowds. Absolutley the best way to see the vatican!
Having a private tour guide made all the difference in the world! We moved through the crowds and learned so much since our guide was very knowledgeable. We would highly recommend this experience to anyone planning to tour the Vatican.
I did not know that I had booked a private tour but I think this is the only way to tour the Vatican. Our guide took the time to explain everything prior to showing it to us. Private tour was not much more money but enhanced the experience 100.
This was a very great tour. The group was limited to our party of five and the guide was absolutely great. She really explained so much about the art , artists and the Vatican itself. This tour was a highlight of our trip and would not recommend visiting the Vatican museums any other way. It was worth the cost just to skip the very long line to enter!
It was great to have a one on one experience of this beautiful place. See it at your own pace and ask the questions you want when you want to. Well worth it.
The tour was excellent. the guide was knowledgeable, informative, and very good in handling our group which included a 17 year old first time visitor. I think she created a new interest in history. It was worth the money and even though we had been there in the past, it gave us new knowledge and interest.This guide was excellent.DrChristine Portnoy
We visited on a Thursday morning and there were shoulder to shoulder crowds. We were the only English speaking booked for that time so my husband and I had our own personal tour guide, Stephania. She was able to skirt us around crowds and take short cuts making our tour more efficient. She was very knowledgable about the Vatican, Sistine Chapel and St Peters. She did a great job and we were thrilled to have the private tour experience.
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.
