Stephanie was a great guide and really knew her stuff about the Vatican. The skip the lines option and guided tour really made the tour. She really set our expectations and followed through on everything. Stephanie was very personable and I would recommend a tour with her to others.
We absolutely loved our tour of St. Peter's, the museums and Raphael's Rooms and the Sistine Chapel! Organization was excellent we had no problem locating and checking in with the Viator group, and experienced no issues getting through security, receiving our tickets or even working in comfort breaks. The quiet boxes worked well we had no problem hearing our tour guide Emma or Ema. She was very knowledgeable about the art, the history of the place, items of particular interest, and, well, everything! She spoke excellent English we had absolutely no trouble understanding her unlike a different tour experience we had. Emma allowed sufficient time for photos and our questions, and was just a wealth of knowledge. We give her very high marks indeed, and would highly recommend this tour.
This is a great tour!! Well well worth doing...and if you get Francesca as your guide, you will really enjoy it! She is a brilliant guide, and obviously loves what she does. My wife and I learned loads from her that we would have otherwise missed had we been on our own. She was very helpful, and was delighted to answer any questions put to her. Apparently Wednesday mornings is the best time to do this tour as its not quite as busy as usual.
GREAT TOUR! Well worth the money! Felt a bit rushed but if you want to skip lines and get a crash course of the Vatican, this is the way to go
Excellent tour ,our guide was very informative and entertaining and we definitely skipped the queue which was great.
When in Rome????? Pay the extra your time is worth it to not wait forever in line, our guide was informative. So much to see its overwhelming. Our only complaint is we had requested over the ear headset when we booked so to accomidate a guest with hearing aides and that didn't happen, so they missed the narrative sad. So next time we would use a company that can provide that service.
Tour guide was excellent. You really did get to skip the line which is not always the case with skip the line tours. Very crowded but a must-do when visiting Rome.
This a perfect tour. We had time to see as much as possible. Our guide was amazing and informative. With respect to where we were, she still had a sense of humor. The skip the line part was absolutely worth it. I couldn't imagine seeing the Vatican without a guide.

Long tour and very comprehensive. Good guide but she was hard to understand especially with the poor audio system. The Vatican was very crowded so if you don't like crowds, skip this one.
Be careful of your belongings! I was robbed of my IPhone when going through the security line. The phone was taken off the x-ray machine either by a security guard or another tourist, The security people and police would do nothing even though they had full video surveillance of the area available.
Michel was the best tour guide that we had on our trip. She was perfect for the 1st time visitor and would love to have her give us a private tour of the city.
Our tour guide was great...so much passion! I highly recommend doing the tour so much to see and learn, was so helpful and enjoyable.
Definitely don't go it alone! Our tour guide Sara was wonderful, so smart, easy going, and led us through the museums, the Sistine Chapel, and St. Peter's Cathedral. It was interesting and made it so easy single out the key points.
Too much to see and not enough time. The tour gave us more time as we waited less and got directed to the key points of interest, history and Paintings. Great for a first trip where you may have not done the research. Guide was very good.
This tour was fantastic! Our guide Francesca was so knowledgable and passionate about the Vatican museums it really brought it alive for us. The museums were fascinating and as its so busy we felt we would have missed a lot without her, we learnt so much. As for the Sistine Chapel -wow!!!
Amazing tour worth every dollar. Our guide was highly knowledgeable and was able to show us the highlights - with so much to see here it was essential for us to have a guided tour to make the most of the only afternoon in Rome we could visit this magnificent place!
Very professional and knowledgable tour guide. Unfortunately St Peters Basilica was closed but the tour was still worth doing.
Excellent tour with Shannon. I would definitely recommend this tour as it was well organised and the guide was very knowledgeable.
Our tour guide Nichola/Nicholai was exceptional in his knowledge and passionate in his delivery of the history of the Vatican tour We very much enjoyed the whole experience The scottish Ladies
All of us got so much out of this tour, it bought the whole visit to life for us all. We saw things that we are sure the guide books would have missed out but our guide was able to show us. Since returning to the UK I have recommended this tour to a friend who is going to Rome in August 2016.
Had a great time on this tour. Our guide Dario was very knowledgeable and had a great sense of humour. Recommend this tour to all.
