The Vatican is more complicated to see than most people think. That is my opinion. This tour was wonderful! You can see everything and still stay on after the tour to walk around on your own. Skipping the line is excellent as the queue to get in was very large even at 8am. Having a small group was beneficial as the crowds are large inside most areas especially the Sistene Chappel. Our tour guide was Angelica. She was knowledgeable, engaging and enthusiastic. I had been to the Vatican some time ago in 1985 but my travelling companion had never been. I learned so much that I most likely had forgotten and it was great to see that my friend was as amazed as I was during her first visit. We took this tour first thing when we arrived to Rome and it was a wonderful welcome to a wonderful city. Thanks Anjelica and thanks Viator for a wonderful experience.
The tour of the Vatican, Sistine Chapel and St. Peter's Basilica was worth every penny and it was due to our tour guide, Rachel. She was extremely knowledgeable, smart, informative and funny. We went to tour a church later that day at her suggestion. Wished we had Rachel still with us because of her insights.
Wonderful tour. Our guide Rachel was sensational - very informative and despite being Irish, obviously well known and comfortable in the Vatican environs.
Getting there early (pre 8.30am) meant that we weren't in as crowded environment, allowing us to not only see the Sistine Chapel ceiling but also get a good look at the beautiful floor!
My favourite part of my visit to Rome. I'm not religious, went for the art and loved it.
The guide was excellent and was so knowledgable about Italian history and the
history of the Vatican. It was very worthwhile.
Excellent tour. It was great to walk straight in, bypassing all the people queuing up. No problem at all meeting up with the group at the meeting point and we set off swiftly. Our guide Laura, was very pleasant, helpful and knowledgeable. We managed to see so much more in the 3 hours than we would have been able to see on our own, and with the minimum level of stress in such a busy place. Laura's explanations and stories brought what we saw to life. I would highly recommend this tour.
Our guide navigated the crowds like a pro. Kept it interesting and answered all questions.
One of the best tours I have been on in my life. Thoroughly interesting. The tour guide was excellent and very knowledgable.
This was a small group tour. Lots of great information from our guide and plenty of time to look at everything!
The tour was well worth the money spent. It was a nice small tour. Our tour guide Rachell was fabulous. Her knowledge was amazing. I would highly recommend this tour, and Rachell!!
Our guide was amazing, her knowledge was fantastic, the tour ended up going much longer at all of our request as she was able to share so much knowledge on the sistine chapel and then the vatican, would absolutely recommend this one, and yes you do actually skip the line which saves you about an hour of queing!
