This was a fantastic tour!! Our tour guide Tiffany was amazing. I would HIGHLY recommend booking a small group skip the line tour. We had only 8 people in our group so very easy to stay together and could ask questions. We are never disappointed when we book a tour on Viator.
Very informative. Don't forget to wear very comfortable shoes. The only problem we had was the meeting place but everyone was very helpful getting us to the right place.
AMAZING! Just skipping the very long line to get in was worth the tour cost! The tour guide was excellent and what a treat to have insight into what we were viewing.
Our tour guide was fantastic! She took the time to explain all the detail related to the Vatican, including the museum, Sistine Chapel , and the Basilica. The instructions for the meeting place worked out well, and we were very happy that we ordered this tour in advance and were able to skip the long lines.
The tour guide was wonderful! Very descriptive of all the features of the Vatican. Loved the tour.
A must on a trip to Rome. I appreciated how our tour guide was very helpful and knowledgeable.
No waiting, tour covers the most popular locations. Interesting.
Great tour Guide . We had a wonderful time . We game away with a great deal of knowledge. Best way to see all the above in one afternoon.
Agatha a great tour guide with a fun sense of humour, Italian flair and deep knowledge... got to the right spots quickly and pointed out things that we would never have noticed on our own eg optical illusions on tapestries
This tour was worth the money. Our guide was very charming and knowledgeable. Before we began our tour, he told us about himself and showed us pictures in a binder with insightful information of the paintings, sculptures, etc. that we would be seeing and pointed out certain historical and artistic tendencies of each artist. Loved the tour and our guide.
This really was a true skip the line tour. At the start there are three levels of queue. Normal queuing which only opens the door at 9 but to get in anytime before lunch you have to be there early. Other group tours skip them at 8 but still have to battle each other and then this one where you walk right by everyone. Being in before most people gave great space. The tour was fantastic and very knowledgeable. A lot of walking 3.5 hours of a tour but worth every second.
Met our small group near the entrance - Vincenzo made sure that our wireless systems were working so we could clearly hear all his comments as we toured the museums. Trip was around three hours long and included lots of walking !
Vincenzo had a real passion for his subject and brought everything to life - giving us all a very good understanding of the art ad sculptures as we made our walk of discovery,
Comprehensive tour with a great guide. So pleased that we had booked, would have hated to queue for hours and then walk for a further three hours. So worthwhile and the Sistine chapel was wonderful.
Sec was brilliant. Just the right amount of history with a wry sense of humour. Really enjoyed the tour as it tied in the history of other places we'd visited Forum/ Colloseum. Great to have someone point out some of the important bits of the Vatican without having to sort the wheat from the chafe yourself,. Also really useful as it was so busy although pm is definitely better you had someone telling you where to go so you didn't have to think about where to go.
Really recommend for best way to succinctly see the Vatican.
This really was a great tour. From start to finish it is worth every penny. Skipping the queue was worth entrance fee alone, but our guide was fantastic, interesting and her in depth knowledge added to the tour. I would highly recommend this trip.
We weren't sure whether or not to book the tour but we were glad we did. Our guide Georgia brought the tour to life and pointed out many hidden gems keeping our three daughters 15, 13 and 7 engaged for the full 3 hours of the tour.
This was exactly what i was expecting out of this tour. The tour guide was entertaining and very knowledgeable which made the 3 hour tour worth it.
I loved this tour. This was my second trip and by far the best. The tour guide was great, very knowledgeable and personable. I really can't think of anything to add or to improve the tour unless it was free!
Excellent. Tour guide very informative, directions easy to follow. Would do again.
