The guide was very knowledgeable and patient. She really took us back in time. Very memorable trip.
Excellent guide, just need to make it a full day so much to see it's mind blowing, already looking forward to do a return visit, thankyou!!!! Russell and Sarah
Anna, our tour guide was so sweet and very knowledgable, and there was so much value in being able to get in early. We saw the crowds after our tour finished and I don't think we would have seen or heard anything had we done the regular hours tour. It was still fairly crowded even on the early tour.
Well done tour but the Skip the Line is the true winner here..Seeing a line that went on forever and in the blazing sun and then SKIPPING it made it immediately worthwhile!! Skipping the line must have gained us an extra 2hrs that we would otherwise have lost..
This was the highlight of our visit to Rome, Italy. The tour guide was personable and knowledgeable. My husband and I had a memorable experience and appreciated what we saw because we were provided the history. I was also glad to bypass the very long queue to get into the Vatican. I would highly recommend this tour. I really wished I remembered the name of our tour guide I liked her.
Although it was a very busy day at the Vatican, Felix was a very fun, energetic, and knowledgeable tour guide.
The booking was simple as were the instructions on where to meet etc. Arrangements at the office were also slick but the big difference was the guide who was not only very knowledgeable but was also an excellent communicator who steered the small party brilliantly around the Vatican. The queues were horrendous but as the strap line says, we skipped them all. A first class tour.
Well worth as the guide was great, but it was packed!! Good thing we used skip the line as the line was at least 4 hours long and it was 37 degrees! Useful tour as you had everything explained and you could ask questions. Would recommend and would use again.
Stunning, not much into Religion but this tour is a must. The history and information provided 1st class!
Excellent tour, tour guide showed passion and was very informative, would highly recommend
It was the best skipped all the lines the guide was very informative the best desecion we ever made was this tour
Anna, our guide was wonderful! She is well-informed and made clear all of the history involved in the buildings, museums and paintings. She interacted with each of us in our small group answering any questions we had. I will definitely advise friends or family to ask for Anna to guide them through the Vatican.
This experience was absolutely great. The Tour guide was very knowledgeable. We learned so much with her. We had the time of our life. We will repeat this visit again.
Tour Guide was excellent and we had a wonderful tour. Also gained so much knowledge of the history of the Buildings. If you do this tour on your own you need to line up twice for entry but by doing the tour we had priority entry. Would highly recommend this tour.
Very good Tour with English speaking guide - This is certainly worth paying for as the waiting time to go into the Vatican was approx 3-4 hours! With this ticket you skip the queue and have a guide approx 25 people in the tour group. The entry fee is an additional cost on top of the skip the queue fee. Well worth seeing as the Vatican is a must when visiting Rome!
Well worth the surcharge to 'skip' the queue. We heard from fellow hotel guests that the queue on that day took four hours to reach the entrance to the museums.
The museums themselves were as memorable as we had expected, although the extraordinary crowds impeded complete enjoyment of some of the artefacts for instance the Laocoon statue.
Our guide, Elizabetta, was thorough, informative and entertaining - tiny and compelling - full marks.
Memorable quote from her: 'In the Vatican, if it looks like gold, it is gold!' And indeed the wordliness of this religious headquarters was abundantly evident.
We did not see the Raphael rooms on this version of the tour, but we had had enough by the time Elizabetta bade us farewell in St Peter's. In fact we had no energy left to do the basilica justice but that was no fault of the tour.
Guide forgot her name! was so knowledgeable and easy to talk to. Tour was informative and fun.
Brilliant tour, excellent tour guide, amazing venue. Would always use viator with their smooth and easy booking service. Skip the line tour was exactly that and very welcome on a hot July day. Our guide was so passionate and knowledgeable, her comments were also at times hilarious. A
