Our tour guide, pardon me, but I forgot her name, but she was excellent. I learned too much of the Italian history. My husband and I will be back next year and we will use the Viator again. Thank you, and I will recommend you to all my friends and family.
We had Claudia...She was an art/history major. She was excellent. There were a lot of tours, but it seems to be pretty organized chaos. The next day we went to St Peter's square and the line was over into the second colonnades on the opposite side of the square......Well worth the price to skip
Great we were assigned with City Wonders group and while a little more expensive than others, the guide was fantastic
Wonderful and extraordinary all thanks to our awesome american guide :
Definitely worth booking our tour ahead of time.All went smoothly, and our guide was very helpful,should have prebooked other tours.
An absolute must our tour guide from America was amazing so knowledgeable,
This tour was everything we wanted and more! Our guide was extremely knowledgeable and funny as well. We didn't wait in a single line and learned so much about Vatican City! Totally worth the money to have someone guide you through this busy, tourist-filled place and tell so many fun stories :
Guide was great!! She was very knowledgeable and able to get the 14 of us to the front of the lines.
It was a very well prepared 3 hour tour. The guide made sure that he kept the group together as much as possible. His explanations and facts were perfect. Very busy venue, but he did his best to keep things moving and informative..
Amazing tour - amazing guide Dorianna. Just wonderful. It was crazy busy with 2 hr plus line ups to get into Vatican museums - but we just walked in. She knew her way around and did a great job navigating us to each room. Very knowledgeable about archeology and history and did wonderful job explaining everything to us - I learned so much. Highly recommend
We couldn't recommend this tour highly enough.. Our outstanding guide Davide Falsaka was hugely knowledgeable, humble as well as humorous.. only complaint was it all went too fast! .. We are already looking forward to our next trip. Thank you all!
Our guide was great. Skipping the line/crowd worked very well. Sara was very enthusiastic and effective in tying the tour together. Some had problems with their headsets but she was patient in changing the headsets. Loved the tour.
Luciana was nice well spoken polite affable very knowledgeable eloquent made tour plesant and would do another tour with her
We were a small group of 12 who commenced the tour at 08.10hrs which was great as we were ahead of the crowds. Again we had a very knowledgable guide who held our interest the whole tour. Wow--- that sums up this tour.
The best way to see Vatican City. Despite the crowds of people lining up to visit the Vatican, our guide Laura, made this tour enjoyable. She shared many facts with our group. I learned a lot and appreciated having access to the facts and stories she shared with us. Would highly recommend this tour.
Definitely get a ticket to skip the line!! We went on a Monday morning and the line was wrapped around the Vatican walls at 9:30. Our tour guide, Patricia, was great-- she was very knowledgeable. We also went back to St. Peter's Square at night during our trip and saw a mass going on, which was incredible! Beautiful at day and night.
The guide was excellent. It was a bit slow getting started, but then very good
This was our favorite tour of our 10 days around the Mediterranean. Despite the massive crowds around the Vatican, we found our tour easily from the directions provided. Our guide, Agata, was outstanding, her English was very good, and her knowledge of the Vatican, the history, and the art was amazing and very interesting. She went out of her way for everyone, and even stayed talking an extra 1/2 hour. Viator was highly recommended by our travel agent, and compared with the tours we took through the cruise ship, we were most happy with the Viator tours. The guides and the prices were better, and the group sizes were smaller.
