The tour was amazing. The your guide was sweet and knowledgeable and very considerate about our needs and desires.
This is an amazing experience. The day we were there the video monitor that talks about the Vatican Museum was not working. Our guide was extremely knowledgeable and did the tour with the help of some books. She answered all our questions without hesitation and you could tell she loved her job.
After seeing the lines to get in the Vatican, I can't think of a better way to go. The price is worth it. We had a personal guide who spoke English well. She obviously loves what she does and had great insight into the history and especially the art. The majesty and beauty of the Raphael rooms, the Sistine Chapel and St. Peter's Basilica are unbelievable. Viator does well with setting up this tour and delivering as promised.
Our guides knowledge and professionalism was exceptional. The only way to see the Vatican.
We had a guide whose name was Elissa or Alissa, who had a degree in archaeology and was so amazingly knowledgeable and informative. She was a vast store house of information. She was articulate, fun, and all around delightful.We gained so much insight and information throughout the tour that we would otherwise have missed. I highly recommend this tour package. There were no lines, time schedules were accurate, the guide was filled with historical information and knowledge of sections and individual components, whether it be art, sculptures, tapestries or any items on view. This reasonably priced tour package is worth triple the cost. If you plan to go to the Vatican Museums, purchase this tour. You will not be disappointed in the least. If you can get the guide we had, you will be most fortunate.
Our private tour was incredible - no lines, no waiting. And our tour guide was very knowledgeable, and extremely articulate. You would never know she'd only been speaking English for 3 years! She also did an amazing job of helping my mother-in-law who had a broken foot. She made sure to keep her foot safe in a very crowded setting. I would highly recommend a private tour for your family. This was my 2nd trip here and the first time, with a larger group tour was far less enjoyable. I wish I could remember our tour guides name - she was amazing. If she reads this - tell us your name. You grew up in Sicily, lived in Greece, and now are in Rome. Thanks for a very special day!
We LOVED this tour with Laura! Not only was she enormously informative - but made this so very personal in the middle of very large crowds. The Vatican campus would have been overwhelming without her. Laura is a wonderful guide and we were very grateful for the quality she brought to the tour. Thankyou!
Would highly recommend this personal tour. There is so much to see and having someone give all the background information is invaluable. The Vatican is amazing but can be overwhelming. Our guide Patrizia was wonderful.
Outstanding tour with a wonderful guide named Dario! Skipping the line is the only way to see the Vatican Museums, Sistine Chapel (no photos allowed) and St. Peter's Basilica.

Our tour guide was so awesome it has inspired me to take some art history courses.. I learned more in a few hours then years of schooling. Simply amazing. Worth every penny. Wish she could take me through all the great museums around the world!!!.
Our tourguide Agostina has been great. We have travelled with 2 kids and she helped us to find everywhere in Vatican Museum a calm spot (it"s really crowdy at Easter there), where explanation adjusted for kids have been given. We expected the kids to be bored after first hour, but this way they enjoyed the whole excursion.
Marta was a friendly and efficient guide with great knowledge of everything. We certainly got a very personal service as we were a group of two so had Marta's undivided attention. It was a thoroughly enjoyable tour and well worth doing.
Our guide was very knowledgeable, and also worked to make the entire tour very interesting for my students. Even though she had just returned from her honeymoon, our guide made us her priority. It is not easy to bring a group of high school kids through such a tour, but she did a great job. Also, it was very crowded in all the halls and galleries, but our guided did not let this hamper our tour.
