Read what other Viator.com travelers think about the Skip the Line: Vatican Museums Walking Tour including Sistine Chapel, Raphael's Rooms and St Peter's. What they loved, what they liked and what they think could be improved, it's all here to help you make the most of your next trip.
Loved the evening tour- much cooler- but didn't include St. Peter's but that was ok because the tour was 3 1/2 hours as it was. We saw the basilica the next day- better to split up those two tours.
Out of several tours, I really think this was my favorite tour and my favorite guide. Our guide's name was Sev. Sev is a professor of Archeology at the University. Before you decide that sounds dull and bland, it was anything BUT! Sev is smart and filled with information that he imparts in a very humorous and interesting way. He was excited about his subject matter and that made me excited about it , as well. I learned more about the Sistine Chapel and the artist than I ever expected. I highly recommend this tour guide and the tour company.
This is definitely the way to see the Vatican! Our tour guide, Vincenzo, was excellent because he was both knowledgeable and passionate about the art and architecture of the museum and St. Peter's Basilica. I can't imagine visiting the Vatican without a tour guide to provide the context and explain the background of the amazing works of art that we saw. Be sure to bring a bottled water and wear comfortable shoes because even though the tour is advertised as 3 hours, it lasted closer to 4 hours after checking in, going through security, etc. Also make sure you get there early enough to find your tour group and guide because there is literally a mass of humanity waiting to get in. And because there is so much artwork everywhere you look to the point of feeling very overwhelmed, you won't regret going with an expert who knows the key masterpieces to discuss in detail. I know so much more about the Vatican and the incredible works of art it contains thanks to this highly engaging tour.
This was a great tour because our guide was so knowledgeable and entertaining. Finding our group at the start of the tour was easy and well-organized. The pace was just right - not too slow, not too fast. We enjoyed this tour and thought it worth every penny!
Well organized tour, led by knowledgable guide. When I saw the queues, I was very great fun we had chosen a skip the line queue!
