This tour was fantastic. Our guide's name was Cossimo. He was very knowledgeable and the tour was exactly as described. We will recommend this to friends and will be back to use the same tour group.

Basilica is beautiful! The trip up to the Cupola is a challenge (as well as the way down) but the view from the top is well worth the effort.

The tour was very good. It was very crowded, so skipping the line was extremely helpful.

Amazing view of a very special place. Antonia was so interesting. Hung on every word, that is when I was able to catch my breath from the climb.

This tour is totally worth it...not only do you get to skip the long line at St Peter's but you get guides who are passionate and knowledgeable. There were only three of us on the tour as well, so even better. Sylvia in St Peter's and Claudia, who took us up the steps to the cupola were both terrific and really made our day. Thank you again.

Efficient, reliable and professional. i booked the night before but the confirmation was prompt. The view from the cupola is amazing and the walk up 300 steps is an experience for those who can climb stairs. As the guides, Irakli and Paula provided highly informative and insightful tours.

A view of the Basilica sanctuary and St. Peters Square that you rarely get. The guides were very good, but too rushed. Slow down and let us take more photos.

This was a terrific way to skip the lines, get fabulous views of the city from the Cupola and enjoy St Peter's Basilica. Tour guide was very knowledgeable and our party of 2 got great value.

Our guide was very good. We loved the view from the cupola and enjoyed learning about St. Peter's Basilica. Although the lines weren't long at 8:30, by the time we left around 10:30 they were terrible. I feel the information we get from our guide is well worth the cost of the tour. We just can't learn everything on our own.

This was a really great tour. Our guide was Antonia. She was the best tour guide I've ever had. Others in the group also made comments to the same effect. I'd thoroughly recommend this tour.

Our guide for the St. Peter's Basilica Walking Tour was excellent...He went into great detail...Our guide, Mercedes, for the Cupola Tour was also quite good...and very accommodating. The views were breath taking. It was the last day of our vacation...and it ended on a perfect note. I would highly recommend Viator. I booked this tour 24 hours beforehand...and they didn't miss a beat.

This was the highlight of my visit to Rome. My guide Sylvia was so well informed and could communicate so well it just made the whole tour so memorable. The climb up was not that bad at all. We started at 8 30am thus the crowds weren't that big until towards the end of the tour. The feeling of standing on top of St Peter's overlooking the square is just amazing. If you are not scared of heights this is truly worth it .
