Tour guide (Priscilla) was extremely knowledgeable as well as friendly and efficient. Only downside was that we saw virtually none of the paintings but the Vatican is a HUGE place so understandable that something had to go. Saw amazing sculptures and tapestries which l had totally missed first time round! Loved St Peter's too.
We thought this tour was an excellent way to visit the Vatican. We battled the thunder storms to get to the tour office, but when we finally got there everyone was extremely helpful. Our tour guide was excellent and we thought he looked a lot like George Clooney. He was passionate about his subject and gave us a lot of information in an interesting way. The people in the office also helped us with suggestions for visiting the Colesseum and the Forum the next day. It all worked perfectly. We would definitely recommend.
So thrilled with our guide as well as this tour that we had selected. It was exactly what we were looking for! I wish that the price would have included the tickets so we did not have to bring Euros. Loved the use of the headsets but definitely bring your own earbuds or headphones. Thanks so much for the wonderful time!
Absolutely the best tour we've ever had: from the new-fangled headsets which meant we heard every word guide Nicola said, to the fascinating insight we were given, on how paintings are really mosaics, on how the Colosseum was partially dismantled to build other buildings and metal sculptures melted down so only four remain in the whole city; on the Holy Wall opened every 25 years at St Peter's, on how the Vatican is the world's greenest country etc etc. So much fact given in a very interesting way. The walk was 3 hours but never overwhelming. The crowds were handled beautifully by Nicola and his little yellow flag. We never felt lost. The Vatican, St Peter's Basilica and the square are tremendous. We ran out of hyperbole. Well worth the extra cost to skip the line - it was so easy to get in the Vatican and straight into the Basilica. Congratulations and a big thank you to Enjoy Rome and Viator.
This was my second trip to Rome. The first time I did not get to see the Sistine Chapel due to the long lines. This time we took the tour, did not have to wait on lines, our guide Felix was great, very accommodating and knowledgeable. The tour started on time and was better than advertised. This is the way to see the vatican!. Would highly recommend it. Props to Felix!!!

Great tour! Worth the extra money to have everything explained to you
Our guide was lovely and kind. Very knowlegdable and took her time to explain everything. I got seperated from the group and she noticed right away and came to find me. A great experience all around!
