Our tour guide Eleanora was excellent. She was very knowledgable about the history of the Vatican and all those involved in the artwork, architecture and history we were absorbing. The tour involves quite a bit of walking, but was well worth the tired legs and aching feet at the end of it.
Note: We took our tour Wednesday afternoon and were not able to tour St. Peter's Basilica due to mass being held at that time, but we were able to enter on our own and walk around. I think the experience would have been better with a guide in the Basilica, but all in all it was a great tour.
Unbelievable experience. Lindy was our tour guide and she was so passionate about her job which made the tour that more exciting. Thank you LIndy!
This tour was great! Alexander was our tour guide and you could tell that he loves what he does. He was just a wealth of information! Just be prepared for LOTS of walking with no breaks for almost 3 hours.
We had a great time on this tour with City Wonders. Instructions for meeting the guides was simple and easy. Entry to the museums was a doddle as well. Our guide presented in an interesting and engaging way. It wasn't just a mono tone 'I've done this a thousand times' trail. She took the time to learn our names and look after every one. The group was of 20 but it was by no means an issue. The radio sets worked well too.
We had a great time on this tour. Finding the meeting point was easy as it was right outside the entrance to the museum. The guide was interesting and engaging with the group, taking time to learn our names and look after us all. The group was of 20 people but this wasn't a problem, it by no means felt 'too big'. The radios worked well too. I would certainly recommend this as if we hadn't had a guide, you wouldn't learn any where near as much.
Such an great day. The Sistine Chapel and St Peters Bascilica are so overwhelming. Our guide was Julia, she was so nice and friendly and explained everything as we went round. She had so much knowledge and was so interesting. So glad we had a guide you cannot possibly find out all the information if you went round by yourself. This is a day myself and my family will never forget.
We had a very enjoyable and interesting tour of the Vatican Museums on our trip to Rome in March. Our tour guide Luciana Merrez was very knowledgeable about the museums and made the tour interesting and at the same time fun with her friendly attitude. We would highly recommend this tour - especially if you are lucky enough to have Luciana as your tour guide.
Our tour guide was great!!! he gave us the history of the Vatican with great detail and the location he got us in was amaizing!
Francesca was an excellent and knowledgeable guide. Initial confusion about Basilica because after payment voucher said it was closed on the Sat after Good Friday but it was opened til 1pm and she made sure we got to see it. She also managed to get free passes to the mass for those who were interested
Excellent tour. We were able to see the highlights of the Vatican Museums and St. Peter's through this experience. The lines without this Skip the Line tour are unbelievably long! Don't chance it and spend your vacation in these lines. Book this tour and you won't be disappointed!
Sev was an excellent tour guide! He was knowledgeable and friendly and moved us through a very, very crowded Vatican on Holy Saturday at a comfortable pace. My husband is an artist and he was quite impressed with Sev. Our children are 7 and 9 and they stayed interested as well! We were glad that English was his primary language since it is ours but he was also fluent in Italian which helped in navigating the crowds. Would absolutely recommend!
This tour was great. My tour guide was very knowledgable and helpful throughout the tour. I am very glad I booked this!
We were in Roma for Easter so skip the line was definitely worth the extra money. Very informative guide.
Francesca was fantastic. This is worth every penny you spend. Why waste time in lines when you can enjoy the amazing museums and the stories behind the pieces with a knowledgable and enthusiastic guide.
My husband, in-laws and I all did the Vatican tour with Sara N. Sara was absolutely the best tour guide. She was smart, fun, patient, and engaging. Her knowledge of the paintings and history that tied into everything the Vatican and St. Peter's offered was unmatched. I would highly recommend this tour when you go to Rome. It covers everything the Vatican offers site wise and the tour guides give you so much of the rich history to go along with it.
Our tour guide, Georgia, was so friendly and knowledgeable! She seemed enthusiastic and excited about all the history and art available to see. I felt very lucky to have her leading our tour.
Anyone who walks by the Vatican Museum entrance after 8:30 AM can already see a massive line forming. I would definitely recommend a Skip the Line tour. Please be warned, though, that the Vatican Museum will likely be VERY crowded, even entering shortly after opening at 9:00 AM.
Tour guide was great and was responsive to the needs/interests of group.
My family and I had a great time on this tour and our tour guide was extremely knowledgeable. She was very friendly and engaging. This tour is worth the cost!
