Excellent tour which was down to the guide, was it Sebastian? His enthusiasm was wonderful and he was a most entertaining speaker. He kept his audience captivated and enthusiastically following his every word
My tour of the Vatican Museum... if this were a scholastic project, Give Viator and the tour guide 'David' ( yes, just like the sculpture!!) an A+.... Having never been on a tour, but having had 100 people tell I was going to 'taken', good money gone bad, I have the last laugh on them. David could have been an Art major and chief design agent for the M. Angelo Sculpture Company. This young guy not only knew everything, he knew how to explain it so that a person uninterested in art, at the beginning, was moving people out of the way to get a more clear view of what was being pointed out. Additionally all the side stories on the personalities of the artists, religious figures, and even the building were amazing and captivating.
Next question, 'would I spend my money with the same company for this or another tour"? Not only right, but darn right!!!
If you take this tour.... USE THIS COMPANY.... ASK for David (as in 'David', the sculpture) to be in his group.
Oh, the communication was via radios, and they too, worked perfectly!!
Five star! David was an excellent guide. He is very knowledgeable and made the tour fun! We thoroughly enjoyed this tour!
Well worth it. I would not have gone without a guide. Sabrina was amazing.

Sev is the best guide we have ever had. He shared his tremendous knowledge with us over 3.5 hours and we learnt such a lot - more than any book could ever give us. May we suggest that you highlight it would be a good idea to take a bottle of water? Sev could do with a more colourful flower and flag to wave about and watch out for the "oldies" not working the escalator ticket correctly. Still - it was great.
David was our guide and he did an outstanding tour for us
Exactly as promised! Quick and simple access to the city. This was perfect since we had 2 young active children, and would not be able to walk through an extended tour. We did a mini-treasure hunt for 6 or 7 key pieces with the children, and was in and out within 2 ½ hours - parents got to see key things, kids enjoyed as much as they could for young ones. Thanks!
Our guide Nina was fantastic!! All ages in our group were highly entertained and learned a lot
I've used this before and surely will again. It allows you to plan your day and not waste time in line. I also like to be free to move about once inside so a guided tour is not for me. First time for my husband and he was very pleased with this as well. I recommend this to everyone I talk to planning a trip to Rome.
Really glad we booked tickets as the queue was so long, must have saved a good few hours
