We greatly enjoyed the tour, our guide was excellent , she was very informative and spoke to te group throughout the entire tour, we enjoyed it very much.
Our guide Marta was excellent. She provided a comprehensive overview of the history, religion, politics and art associated with the Vatican and St Peter's Basilica. We were able to skip the lines with this tour - and considering there was a 2 hour wait for the unticketed entry by 8.30 am, this was a huge benefit. Definitely a value for money tour.
PERFECT!! Great experience full of details delivered by our guide. We skipped all lines, we got a lot of insights and details about everything.
As always, using Viator to plan and book our vacation tours was perfect.
Great tour! We had been to the Vatican before without a tour guide and although interesting, we failed to really understand everything we were looking at. Our tour guide (an Art professional who's name escapes me...sorry), was excellent. She was very pleasant and a wealth of knowledge. Even though we went in December, there were still large numbers of tourist to get lost among, but our guide was always very aware of keeping the group together while keeping us on schedule. There is so much to see and take in which I'm sure one can get in various ways, but I felt like our guide gave us "insider" details that headsets etc. just don't provide. This tour made it especially nice to focus on the highlights of the most important details of this amazing site without getting stuck in lines killing valuable time. Highly recommend.
Tour guide was great and spoke perfect English. A little pricey but would definitely use them again
We are so glad we booked this tour in advance and so avoided the queue, which was long even in low season. Our group was small - about 12 people - which was perfect. We can't speak highly enough of our Guide, Elisabetta, who is an archaeologist and extremely knowledgeable. Her tour was full of information and she was was able to answer all questions and also assist with general information about Rome. We would definitely recommend this tour!
Great tour of 3 hours
Doubt I could see that much by myself in one day...without the lines
Worth every penny to skip the line. Tour guide was wonderful sharing insightful, colorful commentary only available from a personal guide. Again first of December was amazing time to go very small crowd.
This was an excellent tour. It was carried put at a comfortable rate so nobody rushing to keep up and Alexis the tour guide was very clear and informative. The tour lasted a sufficient to give a detailed insight to the Vatican and St Peters
Nina, our guide, did an outstanding job of giving us an overview. Plus she gave us a little break in between so that we could
Enjoy the entire tour. Highly recommend her
Excellent. The guide (Patricia in English) was VERY knowledgeable, had a great presentation and very good English. A plus was her wonderful personality, really engaging with each of us in the small group. While other groups passed us by she would explain things and answer questions which made the tour much more interesting and meaningful. Would do the tour with her again if we get back to Rome.
Our tour Guide Tiffany from Indiana made this tour simply amazing. She took us back in history and made everything so interesting and astonishing. Her love for history and the tour was easily spread to the small group and if I could have I would have followed her all around Rome! Don't miss this tour, a small private group with a guide is the only way to see the Vatican.
