Patrica, our guide is very humorous and explained all the pictures before the trip started in detail...this is particularly useful for those people like us where we did not research much before the visit.
This was a wonderful tour, largely due to our fantastic guide. She educated us on Papal history, art history, architecture, and Greek and Roman mythology with passion and humor. The tour was perfectly paced and allowed us time to explore on our own afterwards. I highly recommend this tour.
Our tour guide Priscilla was amazing! So knowledgeable and also had a sense of humour. Highly recommend this tour
Thoroughly enjoyed this tour and we learned a lot more than if we had just done our own thing. Office was easy to find and the guide very knowledgeable and friendly.
Great tour. Great to be in there before the crowds. Definitely recommend upgrading to the early start!
Our tour guide was highly educated and very knowledgeable. It was a very educational experience. The tour allowed us to use our time efficiently. I highly recommend it.
Tour guide very knowledgeable and engaging. Our family enjoyed this tour immensely!
The only way to do this tour is with the Skip the Line. Our guide was knowledgeable, and our group size was manageable.
Great tour and so glad that we skipped the line as the queues were really long!!
This was an amazing experience! Alfredo, our guide, got us through the hustle and bustle of the Vatican Museums. The crowds were so overwhelming and it was a blessing to have a calm presence bring us through the vast experience. There's no way you can see everything the Vatican offers, but to be able to gaze up at the ceiling of the chapel is worth the price of admission, alone.
You'll definitely want the tour because you'll get to navigate the crowds, which were enormous on even a typical weekday. Alfredo was very knowledgeable about the art and history of the Vatican, which helped us appreciate it even more. My wife and I recommend this experience highly!
A great tour , our guide was knowledgable and gave us a great understanding of the museum and history.
A must tour when in Rome.
This was a really informative tour and our tour guide was really knowledgable and enthusiastic. Thankfully it didn't seem too busy for a change and I was able to hear her commentary. Well worth paying to get some expert guidance, especially about the Sistine chapel and some of the Vatican treasures. I would never have known what I was looking at otherwise!
We were unfortunately late to arrive for our scheduled tour, and the team at Viator generously simply moved us to the next one! Tour was excellent!!! Guide was extremely knowledgeable and entertaining. Absolutely no waiting!!! Highly recommended!!!
Wonderful tour! Anna was an amazing guide and very knowledgable. She was courteous the entire time and kept everyone together. She even went beyond and had printouts of the Sistine Chapel, with which she provided a thorough explanation of the scenes as well as Michelangelo's technique!
Unfortunately it was exceptionally busy as it was Holy Thursday. Despite that we were able to see and learn so much from our guide. I am so glad we did the museum and the Basilica the y were both spectacular. The line up outside to get in was over 3 blocks long. So glad to have done skip the line .
This was a great way to end our trip to Rome. We intentionally booked this tour the day our cruise ship disembarked. The guide was fantastic and knowledgeable.
Great tour and you really do skip the lines. Wish we could have seen more of the Vatican museum though. Our tour guide was fantastic
Well, what can I say.......it's the Vatican. It was GREAT! The sights are wonderful, and the Sistine Chapel is incredible. We kept moving, and our tour guide was great. When you see the lines waiting to get in, you understand that this is the only way to go. I couldn't imagine standing in those long lines! Excellent tour.
I enjoyed the tour a lot. Our guide was not only very informative but charismatic as well. I would definitely recommend it.
