Great tour. Tour guide that met us was most helpful. If in Rome, a must see.
This 'tour' was really just tickets but the key is you not only get to skip the outside line but also an inside line. Definitely worth the money.
The woman with our tickets met us promptly at the stairs across from the Museums. She gave a basic background talk, and then we were on our own. This is good because it enables you to move at your own pace. All kinds of hawkers are around selling tickets, but we were happy we had prearranged ours. All the exhibits are clearly marked, and the areas are designated with areas, etc. The Sistine Chapel was crowded, and people had to be reprimanded for nosiness. Try to bring a small guide for the ceiling so you can identify the various scenes. This Museum trip is a Rome muse.
Beautiful day, our guide was wonderful, she took us to the best spots, saw everything I wanted, she explained everything about the Sistine Chapel, St, Peters Basilica, we were so glad we decided on the tour
Brilliant! Guide fabulous, very knowledgeable and made the tour fun - great information, presentation and delivery excellent. Few funny stories to make it interesting for teenager who said was the best tour ever and she really enjoyed listening!! Straight to all the major items to view, no hanging around but not rushed, Guide was professional, personable and very pleasant - made it a great experience, would highly recommend.
So well worth the money! Our tour guide was thorough and knowledgeable. We got to see everything we wanted to see and never felt rushed.
Excellent tour, worth the price of admission. We were there on October 6, 2014, a hot, sunny day and it was very crowded. Skipping the line and having a great guide like David providing context and detailed descriptions of everything we visited was invaluable. He was personable, cheerful and extremely knowledgeable about the Vatican, the museum, the Sistine Chapel, the artwork, the gardens, etc. It was such a pleasure to visit the Vatican despite the large crowds and the heat, I would do it again. I would not recommend standing in line and wandering around by oneself if this is a first visit to the Vatican, it would be overwhelming for most. The guide really gets you moving through and provides wonderful insight and information. Bonus: our guide looked exactly like Raphael.
We were so happy to skip the line at the Vatican. We found out that 23,000 would visit there each day. We would not have the time to enjoy the area without these tickets ahead to skip the line. Ken
Very, very informative tour guide. I was very happy. The group was not too big. There were so many people in the museum and it was not even high season which I think made the tour more enjoyable. I would recommend this tour. It took 3 hours.
This was absolutely wonderful. Our guide was superb, funny, interesting and really gave us the best tour.
After seeing the line we were sooo glad we had booked the skip the line!
Without the Skip the line tickets we would have been waiting for ages. Straight in, Fabulous.
Great tour, great guide. Everything went as scheduled, the guide was professional and informative. She followed Vatican protocol and kept her guests informed regarding what was to occur next. My wife and were both impressed and we would certainly book again.
Visiting the Vatican whilst in Rome is a must; it is a truly sensational experience and skipping the queue is the only way to enjoy it.
This tour was amazing and definitely worth it! Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and it made the rest of our stay in Rome so enjoyable because we already had some information about the important landmarks in Rome. Overall, this tour added to my stay in Rome and i would use viator again!
This is a good buy as there is a huge line up for the museum at all times. You meet up across the street they get you in and your on your own to explore for yourself. If you hate lining up this is a definite way to save you time
Thankfully we took this tour, the line was horrendous, at least a 4 hour wait, Viator were friendly and efficient. I have booked a Las Vegas Helicopter trip with the in December 2014
Tour was absolutely awesome, checked in with Viator representatives, outside of vatican, assigned us to a group, with a young energetic, well spoke and versed guide. She was absolutely wonderful, and american, no accent, and well spoken, no line, she was very good I would definately recommend this tour to all...thank you for a great tour, this made our trip very memorable, and the highlight of our trip to Rome
Brilliant arrangement - good directions, helpful assistants who guided us to Vatican Museum door, through security and handed out tickets swiftly. Thank you.
We had a small group tour and it was excellent. Our tour guide was so nice, and very helpful and informative. We would definitely recommend this tour. It included the St. Peters Basilica and it was wonderful. We did skip a very long line and we had time after the 3 hour tour ( which went by fast) to stay as long as we want and look longer if we wanted to.
