A guia Julia foi muito gentil e conhece muito o Vaticano. Indispensável para a visita. Recomendo vivamente,
Brilliant tour, was so much better than just wondering around.
There is so much to see and our guide gave us plenty of information and plenty of time to look at everything. Because there is so much to see, i would recommend this tour to ensure you get to see the main sites within Vatican City with history and detail behind everything.
Very experienced tour guide and just the right length of time to see the main things in the Vatican without being too tiring.
Definitely worth the extra money to skip the que. The guide, franchesca, was extremely knowledgeable, incredibly pleasant and made the experience. We are taken through each part away from the ques and it was superb. Totally worth it. I would recommend this trip to anyone wanting the vatican tour.
This was a wonderful experience and well worth the money. Our guide was excellent and I learned so much. I would like to advise travelors to make sure what they are purchasing when they pay for this tour. The tickets to the Vatican are separate. This was stated on-line, but it was late at night when I placed my order and I overlooked this.
The tour was fantastic. The tour guide was both knowledable and friendly. I would highly recommend taking the tour as she gave us brilliant insights and a wonderful day at the Vatican.
The guide was very helpful and showed lots of knowledge and understanding.
Although I missed the 9 o'clock tour by only 20 minutes, another was scheduled for 11 am. Rather than take the tour with a French-speaking guide at 10, I relaxed and waited for the English-speaking tour.
Roselina was our tour guide. I can't say enough about her enthusiasm, her professionalism, and her knowledge of each of the areas which we toured. Prior to our entering the Sistine Chapel, she pointed out several anomalies in Michelangelo's works that many people don't know about. This made the visit all the more intriguing and will be long remembered. I am so glad that I scheduled this tour and will always remember Rome with fondness. The people that I encountered there were some of the friendliest and helpful persons in Europe.
Great tour! Would totally recommend. Tour guide was very knowledgeable, and had a degree in art history which was evident. Wish we could have spent more time in the Sistine Chapel. Only allowed about 20 minutes there. No pictures or video was allowed of the Sistine Chapel on this tour, however. Very strictly enforced by the Italian police in the Sistine Chapel. However, there may be a "private" tour offered through Viatour for more money where pictures are allowed, which we only learned after our tour. Overall would highly recommend.
This tour was amazing. We found the meeting place very easily. Nickola the guide was excellent- telling us interesting facts all the way around the museums, Sistine Chapel and St Peter's Basilica- the time passed by so quickly. Once the tour was over we had some free time of our own in St Peter's which was great.
A really good experience. The group was not too large and the guide was very pleasant and knowledgeable.
I would recommend this to any visitor.
Fantastic tour! We got to see everything we wanted to with explanation by a very knowledgeable and fun tour guide.
Definitely skipped the line - the queue was horrendous. Our guide was very informative and passionate about all we saw, and managed to herd us successfully through the crowds.
I definitely recommend doing the tour. Learned a lot. The tour guide was very knowledgeable. I especially like how the group wasn't too big and we were able to skip the huge lines.
This was my favorite tour! A personable, knowledgeable, enthusiastic guide and being able to access the Sistine without waiting in a long line. Outstanding! Plenty of time for photographs in St. Peter's and the Vatican, too.
Good half day tour at a reasonable pace to see the main attractions
We would thoroughly recommend this tour to anyone. Francesca our tour guide was not only extremely knowledgeable but did it all with a great sense of humour. The 3 hours went really quickly as Francesca filled us in with great facts and information all the way. Thanks Francesca!
Great tour, awesome guide and was great to be able to skip the long lines.
So glad we chose this tour. Our guide was knowledgeable and interesting and the tour was the perfect length.
Sara was the best- so enthusiastic and kind and funny. Was a wonderful tour
This was an amazing day and our tour guide was great at guiding us around the Vatican. We visited on Christmas Eve and it was very busy so the lines were long. He definitely knew where to go and how to navigate the entrance. He took the time to explain various masterpieces and felt he didn't go overboard which allowed us to keep moving and seeing the Vatican.
