Tour guide was very professional and knowledgable. Extremely happy with this tour and it is definately value for money. Highly recommended
THIS WAS EXCELLENT AND WELL ORGANISED, THE ONLY MINOR ISSUE BEING THAT THE GUIDE HAD TO LEAVE BEFORE OUR TOUR FINISHED AS SHE HAD ANOTHER ONE TO DO. APART FROM THAT IT WAS EXCELLENT.
Wonderful tour. Our guide was so informative and truly has a passion for what she does. (I don't remeber her name but she's an archeologist). The lines were so long but we never waited for anything so it is definitely worth doing this tour. The highlight was her wonderful explanation of Michelangelo and his paintings of the Sistine Chapel before we went inside!
Absolutely a great tour, awesome! But the person who made it a very interesting and informative was our Guide Stephano! very knowledgeable. Thank You.
Well worth skipping the line and saving hours of waiting. Guide was very knowledgeable as well.
I rate this tour a 5. Our guide was very informative and had a great deal of knowledge abour the Vatican Museum, Sistine Chapel and St. Peter's Basilica. I would definitely recommend this tour.
This small tour was a wonderful way to see and understand the Vatican museums. The crowds made it impossible to see and understand on our own. I highly recommend this tour.
A must do! Our guide spoke reasonable English and was quite entertaining. Spent about 15 mins showing the group through her book about Michaelanglo's paintings and the Sistine Chapel and as talking is not permitted in the Sistine Chapple, I was glad she did. The paintings she highlighted made sense when we saw them first hand. St Peter's Basilica was breathtaking. Very highly recommended but if you are elderly or have trouble standing/walking for 3 - 4 hours plus, I'd recommend you give this a miss (unfortunately)
It was crowded, but Viator has no control over that. The guide was well-informed and delightful. She answered all questions I liked the tour ending at the Basilica where we were able to roam at leisure. Overall, a good experience.
I forget my guide"s name - Roselia or something; it was the 9 0"clock English speaking half day tour of the Vatican, Sistine, and St. Peter's Basilica. The whole experience was great from the booking on line to finding the office and meeting my group. Everything was very organized, punctual, and smooth. While everything was awesome, I thought our guide gave us just the right amount of information throughout the tour. I could have listened to her all day. I hope your office passes this on to her; I am sure you already know how good she is. As far as I am concerned, she made the experience a truly memorable one.
The tour guide was excellent and in general the tour was all we had hoped for. The only negative was that when we arrived at your office in Rome, we were told that the monies we had paid previously was only for the tour and that we still had to pay the entrance fees into the Vatican. This was not made clear in the information that was on the internet when we signed up for the tour. Our suggestion is that you need to spell it out more clearly in your communications that the fees paid are only for the tour and that admission fees our in addition to the tour fees. The check-in person indicated that we were not the first ones to complain about this. We also spoke to another couple (much younger than us) who made the same interpretation and had the same complaint. Prior to going on the tour, we had a sour taste in our mouths because we felt se were being ripped-off, but once we experienced the tour, we felt the price was worth while, primarily due to the excellence of the tour guide.
