Loved this tour. Our guide, Paul, was extremely knowledgeable and informative. I read one review criticizing the tour because of the pre- tour presentation on the history and details on what we were about to see. I strongly disagree. Paul's explanation of Michelangelo's aprroach to and feelings about the Sistine a Chapel work was fascinating, and contributed to our enjoyment and understanding of the actual ceiling. I strongly recommend this tour.
The guide was amazing. She was so knowledgeable, cheerful, patient and friendly. Her English was excellent. The tour was well organized and well paced. 3 hours was just the right amount of time.
This was great. The guide was well versed in english, very friendly and informative. The museum was excellent. We keep wondering how a human being can make such painting or mapping or weave a carpet. Especially 3D effect on one of Jesus picture where feet will move when you see at a different angle on a carpet.
This your really was amazing. The tour guide was ecxcelent. She had a degree in art history so explained things very well.
Group was 19 people so not too big.
The whole thing is impressive from beginning to end. St. Peter's basilica is impressive beyond words. The cistine chapel is gorgeous.
The tour could not have been better. Guide was fantastic (Dario, probably not spelt correctly) a real professional in every way. Best Tour guide I have ever had and I go back a long way !!
Very good tour with an excellent and knowledgeable tour guide.
Excellent. Excellent guide. The tour met all of my expectations.
Our guide was fantastic. She was so knowledgeable it really added to the experience. No question went unanswered. I would highly recommend Viator when booking in advance. You get what you pay for. We have used them in New York and Rome. This was an amazing experience, thank you
We had a great tour. Our tour guide was excellent. We would certainly do the tour again with Viator. Thanks.
Our tour was more than fantastic. This was mainly because of our guide David. He was full of information which meant I personally didn't need to ask questions. He kept us going (esp my 13yr old son who thought he was great), with his fun attitude and his interaction with us. The tour was great value and well organised. The meeting place was easy to find, and the tour actually started early as everyone had met early. Thank you David and Viator.
Did this tour 27.10.2014, well worth it!! You are crazy not to sign up for a skip the line tour to get into the Vatican and St Peter's Basilica as people can wait in those lines for up to 2 hours or more!! With this tour you get to skip the lines as well as have a personal guide take you through the Vatican with lots of knowledge. Our guide was from City Wonder Tours, I think her name was Sharon? she was fantastic.
One of the highlights of my entire European trip! The Vatican museum, Sistine Chapel and St. Peter's are all incredible to explore... but I have to say, it was Shannon our guide that brought the experience to life. She had so much knowledge and had a way of brining us back into history by sharing stories and insights we would never have known. Our entire group was spellbound from the start when she took us to the electronic board at the start of the tour to explain what we would be seeing and what its significance was. It set the tone from the start and gave the experience that much more impact. I can't say enough about her. If there is a way to request a specific guide on Viator... request her. Amazing.
