Our tour of the Vatican and Sistine Chapel had to be modified because the Pope was having a meeting that day. Viator was awesome to work with and gave us the option to modify the time of our tour, change the date of our tour, or cancel altogether. We chose to modify the time of our tour and made it two hours earlier. This meant that we were in the Vatican early in the morning before most of the public, thus reducing the crowds. That was a nice side effect!
Our tour guide was very knowledgable and provided tons of details about the religious history, works of art, tapestries, and architecture. Altogether a very well done tour.
Tiffany our tour guide was abolutely superb!
We had a difficult start to our morning, but from the moment we joined her our day brightened.
She kept us engaged, amused and educated during the entire tour.
Her extensive knowledge of the museums, artworks, and the historical, sociopolitical and cultural contexts, was extremely helpful in appreciating the works but it was her passion that transformed the tour into something beyond special. My daughter and I both felt very enriched.
I took the Vatican museums tour with another tour guide when I was in last in Rome, some 3 years ago. All I can say is that Tiffany was incomparably better - in a class of her own! Highly, highly recommended.
Susana is a very wonderful tour guide. Fantastic I must say. She gave very good explanations and insights to the whole Vatican Museum Tour. I can't imagine going into the Vatican without her! I will be totally clueless. She was also very kind to wait for my elderly parents who had a difficult time walking very quickly.
All in all, a fantastic tour guide! Thumbs up!
Excellent tour, definitively we skip long lines and our tour guide Francheska was super enthusiastic about all the details and stories.
Vatican is amazing ! Our English speaker Guide, Manuella, is really mastering the history of Rome especially Vatican. If you listen carefully to her, you can get the information that is not written in the history book. She is very patient and she can tell the story of every single picture or object. Sistine Chapel, Raphael's Room and Basilica are fantastic. Michael Angelo and Raphael are genius artist. This tour is strongly recommend for those who would like to know the history of Vatican.
I cannot recommend this tour highly enough. Our tour guide, Francesca was fabulous! She truly is an expert on everything located within the museum and easily answered every single question posed by our group. We were disappointed that we were unable to see St Peters-which closed early due to it being Christmas Eve but the tour nonetheless, was well worth the price.
Quite simply the best cultural/museum tour I've ever been on. While the size of the Vatican museums meant that any half-day tour was inevitably going to miss something intereting, this tour covered all the main items. The guide was superb with a deep knowledge of his subject coupled to a wicked sense of humour and "skip the line" did exactly that - we wasted none of our valuable sightseeing time in queues. I would strongly recommend this tour to anyone what wants to cover the main sights at the Vatican in a comparatively short time.
We were fortunate enough to have Angela for the second day Vatican tour as well. It was wonderful!! wear good walking shoes
Thiswas a very good tour. The guide was extremely informative. Altough it was a walking tour, it was done very easily. Time passed by without noticing. The Skip the Line was a great idea as I am sure there was over 2 hours queue. Very recommended. Well done.
This tour was wonderful!! Highly recommend--our guide, Luciana, was an expert--we would have been overwhelmed if not for her guidance and explanations-
There are hundreds of tourists in this area -you definitely don't want to wait in line after line to see these treasures-book this tour!!
Stella shared her knowledge about the Vatican in an impressive manner. She guided us through the museum and Basiilica with ease. Very enjoyable!
Highly recommend. Our tour guide was David, and he was fantastic. He was very friendly, and did a great job of making everyone feel a part of the tour. Obviously, 3 hours isn't much time to get through all of the Vatican Museum, the Sistene Chapel, and St. Peter's, but he did a great job pointing out the key things. Highly, highly recommend - thank you, David, for a great tour!
