Just what we needed on a busy day, easy to find the group, friendly staff. It is the way to go if you just want to get in and do the Vatican yourself.
Perfect. Certainly a huge crwod in the museums, but with skip the line, the entry ist perfect.
I would highly recommend Viator's Skip the LIne tour for the Vatican! This tour allowed us to skip the long hour plus lines of people who were waiting to get into the Vatican. Our group was small around 15 people and our guide David was very knowledgeable and personable. David took us on a very informative 3 hour plus tour of the Vatican Museum and ended with a stop in St. Peter's Basilica on our own. One of the things we liked was the use of ear buds which were attached to a speaker which allowed us to only hear David when he was describing each aspect of the museum to us. This was important because with so many people in one location, it would have been hard to hear him without them. If you are in Rome or any other location where Viator has a tour, I would suggest them in a hear beat.

There was no guide through the museums, so my rating is based solely on the guide company that got us through the lines and security checks with ease. The groups meet on a stairway opposite the entrance to the museums, but there are a LOT of people meeting there for various tours. You must be careful to find the right group and don't be late! As to the museums, they are wonderful, although a bit confusing. We rented the headset tour before entering, but the layout of the museums was nowhere explained. It was very easy to backtrack, pass up, and give up on many displays. There is so much to see that you really should pick your favorite rooms and skip those of no interest or you'll be exhausted before you get to Sistine Chapel. The Chapel experience was sadly, a herding of hundreds of people into the area and periodically asking them very loudly to be silent. YouTube has some virtual tours that give a better experience.
This was so convenient. I highly recommend skipping the line otherwise you will have to wait for hours to get in.
Was a very good tour, they help you get in and through security and then let you go through the museum at your own pace and spending time looking at what you want to.
You meet with the tour guide who will just help you get in by skipping the line. You are on your own for the rest of the tour.
Our tour guide was knowledgeable about the Vatican tour. The tour guide was easy to find and was right on time. Ill definitely recommend to friends
I definitely recommend doing this. The line at the Vatican is extremely long we got in and my husband and I were able to do our own tour. It was a blast!
The artwork and sculptures in the Vatican Museum are breathtaking such amazing works of art. As we walked with our guide to get in the museum, I couldn't believe the line waiting to purchase tickets and get in no way would I have waited in that line. This purchase is a must!
Excellent way to get into the Vatican Museum quickly and efficiently with the absolute minimum time in a queue!
Definitely need to be ahead of lines. This group was cordial and helpful.
Extremely informative and friendly tour guide. Skip the line was great. Loved the Museums. Excellent tour, would highly recommend.
Excellent tour guide who knew history and presented very well. One of our companion was not able to walk and climb on that day and they readily gave the refund for him.
Excellent tour, so glad we opted to do this because we learned many interesting things, and if we had done independently we would had a very long wait in line.
Worth it! Avoid 2 hour plus lines. There was a heat wave when we were there, so not only was it hot outside, it was also stifling inside the museum. You can quickly get to the Sistine Chapel if that is the main purpose of your trip. Keep in mind, you must exit the museum shortly after you visit the Chapel.
This was so helpful! The lines were 3 hours long the day we visited the Vatican, and the weather was supremely hot. We are so grateful we found Viator and bought the skip the line tickets!
