We went on the 3pm tour on the 17/09/15, the tour guide was excellent she was really informative and engaging, she spoke with real passion. The Vactican Museum, Sistine Chapel and St Peter's Basilica were all breathtaking, the only downfall was how busy the venues were with multiple tours and tourists about at times it was very frustrating and difficult to take everything in.
My daughter and I had an amazing tour of the Vatican with our guide. She was great in explaining everything we saw and took the time to let us take pictures and ask questions. I would highly recommend this tour. This is so much to take in on your own. Don't delay, book this tour today, you won't regret it.
Our tour guide was so knowledgeable. Lots of factual history presented in an interesting manner that held your attention. 5 stars plus.
Our guide was great. She knew so much history and explained the paintings so well. I t was easy to keep track of her and she was constantly checking on us. I would definitely recommend this tour for the vatican. It was reasonable and just long enough.
Our tour guide Marta was amazing! This was the only guided tour I did on my 2 week vacation in Italy and so glad I did. She highlighted some key historical moments and was a fabulous art historian as well. It really brought my experience of the Vatican Museum, Sistene Chapel and St.Peter's Basilica to life!
This was an absolutly amazing tour. It was made even more special by our guide who spoke not only of the facts about the tour, anyone can do that but spoke passionately about Italy and the Vatican. She is an exceptional tour guide and I would request her service if I can, anytime.
As for the tour itself, full@of facs, history and fun titbits. You leave a lot more informed than when you sarted with e better perspective of the churcu, of history and of a possible future. The Basilica and the Vatican musuems are literally out of this world, a lifetime experience for my wife and I and we hail all the way from Trinidad and Tobago in the Caribbean. The experience of the Sistine Chapel, frankly I cannot find words and I feel as if its difficult for my brain to process it, I think it will be quite a while before we can adequately put into words, our impressions and experence. Overall, a truly amazing, wonderful and life significant experience.
Now about the tour sevice...Ecellente The office was extremey easy to find, its two blocks away from Ottaviano, subway station, catch the M train..and google maps makes it ridicously easy, the radois were defintely needed and would I use their service again...YES!
Worth the money! Our guide Nick was very informative, knew his history, learned a lot. Tour Office was easy to find. Started to rain and we walked from office, which was near the Museum, directly into the Museum. St. Peter's was jaw dropping. What a great experience.

A fantastic tour with a knowledgeable and entertaining guide. It was brilliant to be able to walk straight in and not have to wait in the extremely long queue. Why would anyone not book a tour in advance?
The guide was extremely knowlegable, very interesting and polite. We managed to see a great deal in a limited time without feeling too rushed.
The tour itself was excellent. Our guide was extremely informative and kept our attention throughout.
I would absolutely recommend this tour.
The only negative is that the maps they give out give the meeting point in the wrong location and when you ask the locals they all agree with the map. The location of the new meeting place has the wrong company signage on it.
We had a wonderful time.. our tour guide person was great!
Great experience .. i will recommend Viator for tour booking.. skipping the line to enter sites was worth the money.
To visit such an awsome place, you need someone who can provide all the relevant facts, and 'wow'!!
the young lady terrible with names,sorry did exactly that,and more..sociable,informative, ready to answer any questions put to her..well done.
The money was worth paying it. Skipping the line especially with children is highly recommended. Having a guide to explain and focus on the most important is also highly recommended.
Its the way to go to avoid the lines! It was a great experience, a great tour with the history behind the paintings, tapestries, and the history behind some of the Vatican. I wish i had done my own homework before going so i could ask more questions! The size of the Vatican is just amazing. Highly recommend
The tour was great....our guide had a great sense of humor and was very informative. Getting in ahead of the very long lines was also a plus. Will do it next time in Rome....can't see everything in one or two trips.
So worth it! SO many people, but the tour made it easier. No wait in line to buy tickets, AND a knowledgeable tour guide, to give information. Great tour!
Our tour guide was very knowledgeable, obviously very passionate about the history. Tour well worth it, just to skip the line. Tour guide's perspective definitely adds something.
The guide was excellent and very knowledgeable - the use of the headsets in order to make sure that she could be heard was also a good idea - however I do think that it is over priced and if you are going charge for a tour it should be all in - the money you have to then pay in Rome effectively doubles the price
