Stunning, not much into Religion but this tour is a must. The history and information provided 1st class!
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!
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
It was the best skipped all the lines the guide was very informative the best desecion we ever made was this tour
Excellent tour, and well worth the money. However there is another fee of 23 euros per person on arrival which isn't stayed until after you have bought the ticket for the tour.
Emanuela ?was fantastic! Entertained, educated, involved and made a lenghty 3-hour walk into something really worthwhile. Entertained the kids on the tour too.
Guide forgot her name! was so knowledgeable and easy to talk to. Tour was informative and fun.
Remember that you have to pay extra for the head sets they weren't very good, but our guide was very good
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.
Very good. But. Hot. Inside. Great pieces of. Art during renaissance
The best experience, and it was amazing how we skipped the queue. Our guide was excellent. Have already recommended the tours to my brother who is travelling at the end of August
Great tour, saved us lots of time queuing. The guide was fantastic, very knowledgeable and engaging.
Would highly recommend this tour.
Our first day in Italy we did the skip the line Vatican Museums, Sistine Chapel and St Peter's Basilica. So glad we booked this tour we sailed by the incredibly long lines and right into the venues. Our tour guide was personable and spoke fluent English. Our guide moved at a relaxed speed and was so knowledgeable. We were in awe of the beauty and history. I would recommend Viator for any one looking for a reasonably priced tour.
All that I expected and so much more. Priscilla, our guide, was fabulous as she worked us all through the very crowded, and hot, areas throughout the Vatican. She is excellent and you can see that she loves her job as she explains, with such meaning, all that the Vatican represents. Our grandson was thrilled to be asked to help her carry her guiding pole!! Thank you, Priscilla!!
Great tour! Our guide, Alfredo, really knew his stuff and did a great job sharing the info with us. We enjoyed it and learned a lot.
Our guide was very knowledgeable, friendly and funny. She provided great insight about the extraordinary Vatican Museum collections while also making it very enjoyable with entertaining stories.
Our tour guide, Francesca was excellent. She was very animated and she even kept the children on the tour engaged. It was beautiful and very moving. I would recommend the tour to anyone visiting these locations for the first time. It was very hot and humid. If you are visiting Rome in the summer, be sure to bring plenty of water, and a hat or an umbrella on this tour.
Excellent tour. The Vatican was extremely busy this day and without this tour, I would've easily left or bypassed a lot due to the large crowds. You will get an in-depth tour of the historical pieces and beauty of the art and history. This place is well preserved and quite stunning. I highly recommend it.
Of all the fast passes we used on this trip, our guide Margetta I may have gotten this wrong was the best of the lot and they all set quite a high standard! I think I just simply love her great wit and she really shared so many interesting facts about the Vatican, Sistine Chapel and St Peter's Basilica with a great deal of passion! This with the Colosseum is the best choices we made in Rome as it clearly illustrates the vast change experienced in the City's culture over time! Loved every minute!
Excellent tour. Very informative with highly educated and fun guide.
The process helps tremendously with shortening the wait line.
Very knowledgeable tour guide. Except for the heat, thoroughly enjoyed the experience.
