Sev was a GREAT tour guide. He provided excellent historical context to many of the exhibits. A few suggested changes. Provide an overview of the different segments of the tour. We could have spent a little less time explaining the Sistine Chapel in the hot sun. Saint Peter's Basilica was Amazing.
This trip was a positive experience. Our guide Laura was very knowledgeable and did a beautiful job of navigating the crowds and keeping her group organized. Would definitely recommend this.
Alessando the tour guide was amazing. Funny. Full of knowledge. And remembered everyones in the group nationalities.
The trip was amazing and our tour guide Lindia was very informative she kept the party interested and together through out the trip. Very pleased with the experience.
Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and answered all my questions very well. She paced the tour well, covering aspects per schedule, on time and in good command of English.
Our tour guide, Sev was exceptional!!!! He was very passionate about all areas. This walking tour was 3 hours and the time went fast because of Sevs knowledge and passion.

what a brilliant tour - so interesting and we did skip the lines! Would highly recommend this
Our tour guide was fantastic! He did a great job of keeping track of all of us and was funny and knowledgable. His English was perfect and we felt very lucky to have found this tour because it was the key to our successful visit to the Vatican. We brought three children ranging from 7-13 years old and he was wonderful with them as well. I would definitely recommend this tour.
Very knowledgeable guide, saw a lot in a short time despite huge crowds and very hot weather.
We had an excellent experience on the tour. We did the small group 12 people, early entrance and it definitely seemed worth it. We truly skipped the line, no waiting. Prior to going everyone warned us about being very cramped and crowded in the museum, but we had plenty of space for viewing, likely due to the early entrance. The guide kind of forgot her name, maybe Danielle? was superb and really made the experience. She was enthusiastic and you could tell she really loved what she was doing. She moved us along very efficiently, but we never felt rushed. She really knew her history and art. She was able to answer any questions asked in an effective way. She also treated other tour groups and guides we encountered along the way very respectfully. This tour option may be more expensive than some other companies out there, but based on this experience it was worth it to us for the quality of the guide. We could tell that she actually cared about our experience. Thanks!
This was a really good overview. You really need a second day after this tour opens your eyes. Highly recommended.
Our tour guide was great. We were able to see and learn so much that day with her. We saw all of the major treasures at the Vatican in a pretty short time. Unfortunately these spots were jammed with other tourists on the day of our visit so conditions were not great. If we return to Italy again, it will NOT be in August...too hot and too crowded. Otherwise I would highly endorse this tour.
Great and knowledgeable guide. English was excellent. Skipping the line is worth the price.
Amazing tour absolutely amazing. Our tour guide was fabulous. He spoke perfect English very clearly. He was a mine filed of information. Was fascinated listening to him, he answered all questions to the full and also gave out extra information regarding Rome itself. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend this tour to anyone. This was an amazing tour that covered all areas that we wanted to see, was fascinating.
very informative appreciate the tour just hitting the highlights

Excellent tour with convenient ticket access to the Vatican museums. You can't miss the Sistine Chapel and St Peter's Basilica. They are stunning to view in person, and the tour guide provided great information about all of the sites. Her archaeological and historical background clearly came through in her commentary, which we appreciated a lot.
This was the best purchase ever! Everything was as described. Our guide, Patricia, was fantastic! We walked by the enormous lines and got in to see the Vatican, Sistine Chapel, etc. all in three hours. The guide even gave us time to use the restrooms and get something to drink. I highly recommend you purchasing this if you are visiting Rome.
The tour delivered exactly what it promised. It was pretty crowded bring a Saturday but our guide Laura managed the group very well. Great job Viator and City Wonders!!
Given how busy the Vatican was, it sure was nice to skip through the lines. Our guide was very knowledgeable and managed to keep the group together even with the large crowds. I learned a lot and saw a lot. A great tour!
This was the best thing we did so much to see and do. I want to go back and do the tour on my own. A lot of info to cover in 3 hours. The guide was brilliant
