Guide was excellent. Very knowledgeable and engaging. Managed us through the packed crowds extremely well. The use of the 'flag pole' for us to follow and the radio receivers so we could hear her at all times was first class.

The tour was very good and informative, the guide took you thru the highlights and explain very well everything it's a 3-3.5 hours tour that goes really fast, it is worth it if you like to know details and explanation of paints, structures,the only suggestion is to book this tour any other day except wednesday.

In addition to the unique and outstanding buildings which we were privildeged to view our tour was made more special by our guide Doriana. Doriana obviously has a great love for history and religion and she imparted her extensive knowledge on us. She brought the frescoes, mosaics and tapestries to life and helped us to understand how life in Italy and across the centuries would have been. This was a once in a lifetime glimpse at history, an opportunity to view great works and incredible architecture. Thank you Doriana for your most excellent tour.

The tour guide was very good and made the whole experience excellent.
I have been several times before so have a comparison.
It's great not waiting in a queue as so much time can be lost when only on a short stay

I cant say enough about how great this tour was. Frank was the best tour guide Ive ever head on any tour anywhere. The Vatican Museum is overwhelming, with so many people and so much incredible stuff to see. Having an incredibly knowledgeable guide to navigate you through and give you perspective, is absolutely worth the the cost of the tour.... not to mention avoiding the 2-3 hour line.

Such a great tour! If I did it again I would not change a thing. The lines were looonngg the day of the tour we were there on Good Friday but we literally just walked right in! Our tour guide Cant remember his name, Peter maybe? was so wonderful!! As a dual citizen Italy and the US he spoke perfect English and he had a really great sense of humor! He was also so knowledgeable! He really made the tour great! The tour is really reasonably priced and it is worth every penny! Can't say enough good things about this awesome tour and our awesome guide!

We have taken a few tours with Viator and once again we were not disappointed. We did this tour on a Wednesday. We saw the Papal Audience in the morning and then planned this tour in the afternoon. Many of the 250,000 people who came to see the Pope that day also thought visiting the museum that afternoon would be a good idea. Thank goodness we had booked the tour! We skipped the line, and though crowded, our tour guide, Seraphina, was excellent. She knew how to navigate the museum in a crowd and so we felt little of their presence. Her knowledge was vast. We highly recommend this tour and guide!

It is surreal enough to be in Rome, but more overwhelming to be at the Vatican! This was an excellent tour with a wonderfully knowledgeable and friendly tour guide. We me our group outside the museum entrance and were able to walk through, skipping the line to purchase tickets. We spent approximately 3.5 to 4 hours at the Vatican and there is no way my husband and I could have learned or seen as much if we were to explore on our own! Definitely worth the tour if you have little time to spend in Rome. Excellent tour company and guide!!!
