Very well organised and informative trip. If we had done this trip on our own, we wouldn't have learned a thing. Also, skipping the long queue was great in the summer heat.. Our guide Philip was full of interesting and amusing information which even held the attention of my two teenagers. Very, very hot the day we went so we were grateful for the talks being in the shade. The Sistine Chapel was rather amusing in that the guards there had to keep everyone quiet but they made more noise than the visitors with their very loud 'shushing' all the time! The tour didn't include St Peter's Square but the tour finished early enough for those who wanted to to stay behind to do this, and then catch the public bus back. Quite expensive but we thought worth it for the knowledge gained.
Very convenient and easy tour. My husband and I enjoyed the good humor of our guide.
great tour, Vatican is such a busy place.
If you want to go to the church get there around 9am Sunday morning and you will also see a great service and no long lines. Sistine Chapel amazing. my second time there. tks Viator
I highly recommend this tour. The Sistine Chapel is so amazing to look at. Well worth the money. Great tour guide really was a skip the line tour because there was a huge line all around the building.
Gloria our guide was EXCELLENT! She knew Rome inside and out; and shared her depth of knowledge with us. She also fielded all questions expertly.
This was a fabulous day and so trouble free especially with our hotel pickup. Our guide was so knowledgeable and a great sense of humor. We could not have imagined doing this tour on our own. we loved it and really recommend it.
We could not be happier with the service we received from Viator and Green Line Tours. A van picked us up at our hotel and took us to the main bus that drove us to the Vatican. We were in Rome on a long week end and the line up waiting for entry to the Vatican was at least 8 people deep and went for about 3/4 of a mile. A 3 to 4 hour wait for sure. Our tour guide walked us right in without a wait. Our tour guide was wonderful - personable and very knowledgeable. We highly recommend Viator.
Excellent. Our male guide ,from the start, gave us great insight even before we entered the museum. A truly masterful tour. One of our best ,if not the best tour in Rome.
Pick up at our hotel was on time. The guide was excellent and very knowledgeable. Overall I give this a 5 Star Rating. Excellent value, expecially for those that do not want to stand in line waiting for tickets.
Excellent tour and the guide was great and very knowledgeable.. Highly recommended the tour. The line on the day of our tour was at least 5 hours long. It was great to go to the head of the line…
It was fantastic. I have expected for this tour to be a bit "dry", but our guide had us laughing all the time.
Worked out perfect. Tour guides were excellent. Picked up and dropped us off, just worked out wonderful!
Excellent tour, guide knew her stuff very well but also knew which souvenir shops to take us to .... the most expensive ones, it is better to shop around before buying. As for skip the line, there was no line to skip, I guess we were just lucky.
In my opinion it was a very Enlightment experiance specially when the guide explain the paintings step by step from the genesis the creation and and detail by Michael Angelo with his perception regardless of the corrections was understandable made by later puppils. it was great !!!!!!
Our guide was professional, knowledgeable, friendly and beautiful. We jumped a long line and in no time were inside the museum which was absolutely breathtaking.
Skipped the lines and saw everything that we wanted to see. Fantastic tour!
We had an amazing visit to the Vatican Museums and the Sistine Chapel thanks to Viator. If you visit the Sistine Chapel you will not be allowed to take photo's but the museums are ok to photograph. Fantastic murals, too much to take in with one visit. Will have to return one day to do it all again. Thanks
Going to any large museum it is a must to have a guided tour. Everything is more detailed. A must see in Rome!
Great tour - loved that we got picked up at our hotel, which made the experience that much more enjoyable. Wonderful knowledge level of the history.
We did get lost in trying to get out of the museum and back to the bus - a group of us were left behind by the guide, but finally found our way out and to the bus.
