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
Great tour! Our guide Nicoli was fantastic. You could tell he was very passionate about the information he was sharing. The Museums are very crowded and he gave us fair warning of this but also stopped to give us more information about the art around us. I would definitely recommend this tour!
The guide was very knowledgeable and patient. She really took us back in time. Very memorable trip.
Stephano was great! Very informative and had a good sense of humor as well.
Excellent guide, just need to make it a full day so much to see it's mind blowing, already looking forward to do a return visit, thankyou!!!! Russell and Sarah
