So wonderful to avoid the lines. A must do if you are going to the Vatican museum
Although we arrived fairly early, the queue was right around the wall but with this tour entry we were able to skip this line. We met the guides at the bottom of the steps exactly as described in the details, we went in as a group and given our admission tickets and we were let loose to do what we wanted on our own and spend as long as we wanted inside! Perfect
It definitely was helpful and almost necessary to have the skip the line tickets. We visited in May and the Vatican was extremely crowded. I heard the wait was about 3 hours. It would have been nice to get in the Basilica without a line. We were not aware that we were only getting in the museum with these tickets. There were some in my party who thought the crowds were over-whelming and needed to leave the museum quickly. It was good that the Sistine Chapel was at the end and they were able to see it briefly.
This was a very good tour. Was lovely to be able to do your own thing and not have to follow a guide, although we didn't have the explanations from a guide of what we were seeing. If you're happy to research and wonder around. This is a great tour.
Get to your meeting point early, as there are alot of tours and people to be sorted. The company was very quick and efficient on all the tours they were running and only took approx. half an hour to sort us all out, go through the security and then we were on our own to explore. I highly recommend this tour and having email contact with Viator to book this tour was hassle free also.
Thank you Vialtor I will use you again on my next travels.
Wow! Amazing. Our guideways very very knowledgable and engaging. Only thing I would recommend is to bring your own headphones. Sometimes it was hard to head the tour guide through the ones they gave us.
It was very easy to find the group. It was very convenient and easy to get into the Vatican Museum.
Our Guide Sev...sorry if the spelling is incorrect! was the best part of this tour. We learned so much. The way he presented the information was so engaging. We felt very lucky that we ended up in his group. Grazie!!!
It was just what we wanted. We did a self tour after admittance to the museum.
Our tour was EXCELLENT! I am so very happy I booked through Viator, which I found by Googling Vatican tours. It was easy to book, print out our voucher and show up where we were instructed. Our tour guide, her name escapes me was extremely knowledgeable and very personable. I will definitely use Viator to book further tours.
Purchasing tickets for major sights and hop on hop off buses in Rome and Florence really did live up to your advertisement of "skip the long lines!" We had a wonderful trip because we used tour company.
We Loved our time in Rome! We stayed in a great apt that was easy to get to metro, and our host picked us up from airport when we arrived, so that was nice. The tour of Vatican was very interesting and enjoyable. We loved the Coliseum and the forum. It was a fabulous trip.
Highly recommended as it helps you bypass the crowds waiting to get it. You can do the museum at your own pace, take as long as you want in certain rooms, and glide ? thru others. It is very crowded, so be prepared to be like cattle. 20-25,000 per day even in off season. The wait outside is around the block. Just be sure to note that the museum entrance is NOT near St. Pete's and it is about a mile and half away. The tour concludes with a shortcut into St.Peter's Bascilica, so you skip all the lines there. Great way to save time. The guides are exactly where they say at the meeting point.
Annalisa was a great tour guide. She is very knowledgeable and pleasant.
Our tour guide was entertaining, informative, and very knowledgeable. We skipped the queues as promised. All thoroughly satisfactory - I would have no hesitation in recommending this tour.
This deal delivered exactly what was promised. Instructions were clear and entry to Vatican Museums was on time. There was no queuing and was stress-free.
Excellent tour! Guide was extremely knowledgeable and it was great to walk past the long line ups and go straight in.
The tour performed as expected. We easily met the the tour guide at the agreed location and skipped the queue before being left to explore on our own. Audio guides within the Vatican Museum are difficult to use as there are not numbers as you would expect in different locations.
