we would never have seen or learnt so much if it were not for our guide. Yes the vatican is busy so you should expect that but we didn't wait around and saw some beautiful sights and all the key areas. afternoon tour was full of unexpected treasures, the churches were often empty and impressed with the knowledge of our guide. plenty of time to walk around, take pictures and just marvel and the scale of some of these churches. would definitely recommend viator well organised, great staff and got exactly what I expected

We loved this tour. Well worth the money as there is no way you would be able to get the amount of information on your own. We weren't sure about the afternoon portion visiting 3 basilicas and that turned out to be wonderful, too! Highly recommend!

Great guide . Well worth the extra expense. Only way to see so much in such a short time. Also, enjoyed very much the afternoon tours of the 3 Basicilicas.

Excellent visit and excellent guides. Well worth it.
The afternoon visit was only for a few churches that are outside the beaten track, but very much worth the visit.
The guides were excellent full of insights and anecdotes.
The skip the lines ticket is ABSOLUTELY required for the Vatican. And using a tour you don't need to get out from the Vatican Museum visit to get access to St. Peter.

On a hot day in Rome this is a great tour to take. In the morning we did the Vatican and it was amazing! In the afternoon we did the rest of the churches. I loved it and in my opinion the best way to see everything in a short period of time.

I adored this tour!!! Our morning guide was charming, informative and did a great job of taking care of us with the crowds. The afternoon guide of the 4 cathedrals was younger, less experienced and a little nervous - but still fine. It was more time on the bus than we had expected and we did get caught in traffic for a while.

Great tour and a lot to see! Both the morning and the afternoon tour guides did an exceptional job of selecting the right features to see and were very knowledgeable. Can't imagine attempting to do this tour without a guide. The extended break in the middle was very appreciated.

Lucina was fantastic! My 7 and 9 year olds have lasting impressions of this tour. Her attention to detail is right on and in air conditioned comfort Sistine Chapel overview before you enter. She kept us to a pace that perfect. I would ask for her again.

The Vatican and all the Basilicas we visisted were awesome! The Vatican had a lot...I repeat...a lot of people and our tour guide did a great job keeping her group together. Visiting the Basilicas in the aftertoon was a nice relaxing 'cool down' after the Vatican!

Visiting the Vatican was an exceptional experience. Being able to skip lines allowed us more time to actually see the incredible sights, and I only wish we would have had more time to enjoy all the fine artwork on display. Both of our guides were extremely knowledgeable and answered questions without hesitation.

Other tours show you the Vatican museum and St Peters however this tour has the added extra of 3 extra Basillicas in the afternoon, churches that you may not see on other tours but as impressive as St Peters and a lot quieter. Well worth making a day of it!

Enjoyed this tour very much. Both tour guides were very knowledgeable and interesting to listen to. I also enjoyed the free time between the two tours to have lunch and shop for souvenirs.

SKIPPING THE LINE IS DEFINATELY THE WAY TO GO . OUR MORNING GUIDE AS EXCELLENT AND VERY KNOWLEDGABLE SHE SPOKE LOUD ENOUGH FOR ALL TO HEAR HER AND WE PROCEDED AT A GOOD PACE FOR US TO HAVE TIME TO TAKE PICTURES. THE AFTERNOON PART OF THE TOUR WAS VERY GOOD AND THE GUIDE WAS ALSO KNOWLEDGEABLE BUT NOT AS GOOD AS THE MORNING GUIDE. THIS TOUR DEFINATELY TAKES ALL DAY AND SHOWS YOU EVERYTHING YOU WANT TO DO AT THE VATICAN.

The tour is split into a morning at the Vatican and afternoon visiting the other churches of the Vatican, away from the main complex. Very well organized and efficiently run. Different tour guides for morning and afternoon, both were amazing and full of interesting information! Highly recommended!

Skip the lines were incredible given how busy the Vatican was. Both halves of the tour was incredible, the first half because of all the obvious sights the Vatican has to offer, and the second half was great because it takes you to basilicas that you may not otherwise have paid attention to.
