Our party of 4 had a wonderful time at the Vatican and Alissa (our tour guide) was very knowledgeable, pleasant and a pleasure to be with. The skip the line option was a very good choice and the small group of 10 was just perfect. I would have no hesitation in recommending Viator to my friends and also would book again in the future.
Excellent tour , would recommend this to friends , worth every penny to jump the long lines
The tour guide, Martha was amazing! She was an art history graduate student and drew our attention to many things that one would miss if they toured by themselves.
We enjoyed being able to be in a smaller group for this tour. We also noticed that we were able to gain access to the Vatican Museum even before other tours which was a plus. Our tour guide was very informative and knowledgable.
Our tour guide was very helpful and knowledgable. Unless you're extremely well versed in all things Vatican City i recommend having someone explain it all to you, she knew the smallest details that would take me forever to have memorized and understood prior to our visit!
Great tour. Hated it for the hundreds in line for tickets as we went right in. The guide was excellent and very knowledgeable.
This was a very interesting tour and our guide was excellent. Very informative and fun! Thank you so much!
Thank you, Marta, our wonderful guide. who made this tour lively and informative. Marta brought the history alive which a guide book cannot do. We felt the little details Marta gave about the paintings and artists was what added that extra something to our visit to the Vatican City.
I would highly recommend a tour booking, We was able to skip the queues and passed through security quickly and with this tour no extra costs on the day. We only had a few days in Rome and didn't want to waste any time queuing.
Directions to the meeting point was correct and google maps helped with the directions from the metro line, which was about 8 minutes away.
Being able to enter the museum early was a big plus... we missed many of the crowds, even in the Sistine Chapel. There is so much to see and the tour guide pointed out so many things that I'm sure we would not have noticed on our own. It was well worth the money.
What an absolutely unforgettable experience which I quite honestly must say was made so special by our wonderful guide Sarah!! Her passion and knowledge was inspirational!! If you're going to do the Vatican this has to be the tour to book, early entry is a must to avoid the horrific queues and on this tour there is NO queuing which made everything so effortless. You will not be disappointed!
Alicia knew all about the interesting facts, let us have time for questions and pictures. Excellent :)
I highly recommend this tour! The meeting location was easy to find and representatives were set up ready to assign us to our groups. We skipped right to the front of the line. Our group was small and the tour guide was AMAZING (I wish I remembered her name). She had a real passion for the Vatican and told us stories throughout the tour which kept it engaging. It was just the right amount of walking and looking and moving through the space, which was huge and very crowded. We really enjoyed the tour and would highly recommend it.
