Again, this was an excellent tour. The only bad part was the Basilica was closed for a special mass, but we were able to get in later in the day.
It was a great trip and worth the money. I would recommend anyone to take the Sistine Chapel tour and ask for Rafael as a tour guide. Rafael was very knowledgeable about the history of the Sistine Chapel and Italy.
Just wanted to leave some feedback from our trip to the Vatican city on the 5th Oct 2015. Not only was it well organised it did exactly what i wanted it to do. I was a little apprehensive beforehand as you are when you book trips from home and not knowing exactly where to go once you arrive. But it was amazing, we skipped the lines enjoyed three hours touring around this amazing place with a brilliant guide. Priscilla was funny knowledgeable and absolutely first rate. Will use Viator again in the future without doubt. Thanks to all.
I found the tour excellent, the guide very knowledgeable and he would answer any questions that I had.
Very worthwhile. You will miss a lot of information without a guide and ours was great. Also, to line up the normal way will take hours, so this is for sure the best way to see what you want to see as well as doing it in a short time.

The most amazing and informative tour anyone can go on, its a must do on any ones bucket list.
Great and knowledgable tour guide. Booking ahead does help to eliminate most of the lines and having someone give you information about what you're seeing is invaluable.
Make sure to bring your own head phones or earbuds, much more comfortable than the complimentary ones.
Great tour! The guide was excellent and not standing in line for hours waiting for tickets is the only way to go. This tour was recommended to us and we will recommend it to our friends.
The tour got us in quickly and the guide was most informative. It was well worth the expense.
Our guide Chiara made the tour so enjoyable for ourselves and our young boys 10 and 7. She was so enthusiastic and created so much interest. She was brilliant.
Priscilla was a terrific tour guide, providing thoughtful insights about the art, architecture and history of the Vatican. I overheard some other guides really over dramatizing the history and art, while our guide was very engaging but without the over-the-top drama. The pace was reasonable and she took care to keep our group of 20 together. Unfortunately there was no appropriate opportunity to give really thank her... we departed in front of St Peter's tomb!
great tour of the can't miss Vatican sites. No waiting in lines, the guide was clear and knowledgeable and answered our questions
Nicely organized and interesting tour. Skipping the line is definitely a time-saver, and the guide did a great job covering the highlights of the Vatican Museum, Sistine Chapel, and St. Peter's. Highly recommended!
Withe the guid that is provided, the experience through the vatican has been interest provoking!
however, make sure that you have noted the meet up destination!
Wow oh wow! Our guide was amazing! The day was just so touching, the passion, and the love for the city and the Pope! I can not remember her name but she had a stick with a pink fluff thing(flower) maybe. Truly a site to behold!
It was absolutely wonderful! I had a great tour guide and the museums, chapel and St. Peter's Basilica was overwhelming! I did not expect to have to pay more than was advertised though. I think the 43 ad makes you think that is full price. The extra 23 should be included as some people were embarrassed who did not know. Otherwise it was wonderful.
Our guide was fantastic very informative. The only criticism is that we could not finish our tour because we started a little late due to the crowds so we had less time than promised.
Our guide was amazing..so interesting and passionate..about the history
