very interesting tour, we enjoyed it very much. very sympathatic guide named theresa, she knows very much background info.
The tour through vatican was really great. We got a lot of informations. Our tour guide (Elena) could answer every question we had. She was just super!
Our guide Simon was great. Idea to use one-ear-phone radio system is more than great.
I can say a lot of words about museums , but it's common
Great tour, but next time, I probably would not try to go during Holy Week because it was just ao crowded. If you want the highlights and info on the highlights, this is a good tour for you. If you or someone in your group is an art history buff, don't do a tour because it will move too fast for you.
This was fabulous! Our guide was very knowledgable and helpful. It was the best tour or all!
Absolutely wonderful. The tour was nicely paced and our guide Emanuela was incedibly knowledgeable. The headset was a must as it allowed us to enjoy all of Emanuela's narrative. We did not have to stand in any lines just like Viator advertised! I highly recommend this tour to anyone planning to visit Rome. You cannot go to Rome and miss the Vatican Museums and St. Peters! Enjoy, we did!
Enjoyed the tour with Francesca, which was very informative and entertaining.
Cannot praise this trip enough- what an amazing educational aesthetic extravaganza! Finally understood the Sistene Chapel and the Vatican politics and drama.
The VERY BEST tour possible for a first trip to the Vatican. Our guide had a depth of knowledge about the history, intrigue, and myths that was amazing. He(Simon) managed to provide a summary of 2000 years of history in a most interesting way.
This tour was the highlight of our visit to Europe.
Very much enjoyed our tour guide and learning all about the history, sculptures and artwork at the Vatican. Overall, a very nice tour.
Good tour and well worth the extra for skipping the line. The regular line into the Vatican Museum was over 3 blocks long at 9am. Only issue is that the Sistine Chapel was so full of people that it was elbow to elbow, but that isn't the tours fault. Also very crowded in the museum and some very rude and obnoxious teens and adults. Make sure you wear pants or dresses that cover your knew. St Peter's is very strict about it.
I can only assume this saved us much time not waiting in line. Just make sure you know where this will start and allow enough time to get there early. Wouldn't recommend doing multiple tours in a day also!
The stuff to see and the gudie's knowledge was excellent. However, with 30000 people a day moving through the site it is absolutely no fun. We were a group of 22 and it was hard to follow the guide. Radio contact is also often badly impacted when the guide is alread some meters ahead, mostly in the next room or compartment. I would recommend low season or a smaller/private tour.
