This tour was outstanding. Our guide, Alissa (sp?), was knowledgeable, well organized and fluent in English. She escorted us through the maze that is the Vatican Museum and made sure that we did not miss any highlights. She allowed us plenty of time in the Sistine Chapel having given us a detailed description before we entered. She did an outstanding job explaining St. Peter's Basilica and even had suggestions for lunch. I hightly recommend this tour.
I highly recommend this tour, you skip the line and go in. Sara, our guide, was excellent. Couldn't ask for a better person to guide this group She was raised in Rome, spoke English beautifully and thoroughly knew the subject matter.
She became my first love in Rome.
The tour leader was excellent she (Irish lady) was very knowledgeable and explained things very clearly.
Excellent tour! tour guide very knowledgeable. The tour of the was great, skipping the very long lines and with all sorts of information and history about the museum and St Peter's Basilica. The afternoon part visiting the other 3 major basilicas is a must!
It's obvious after our second tour with this operator (through Viator), that this company only hires the best employees. Our tour guides Katherine and Giulia were wonderful. They were very knowledgeable, funny, and personable. They kept a great pace and made sure that everything was high energy and exciting. This is a great tour and would highly recommend it.
The morning Vatican tour was superb! Our guide was knowledgable, interesting, informative and focused. She presented some of the highlights of the Vatican museums and grounds, Sistine Chapel and St. Peter's Basilica. The Vatican was very crowded but our guide kept us all together (no easy task). This is a fast-paced tour with much to cover, and our guide adeptly did so, including "adding a few extras, that we may not have time for" which made it more exciting.
The afternoon tour of the 3 other Vatican basilicas and the Shrine of the Holy Stairs was more relaxed than the morning. We had different guides. There were two groups of about 25 people on the bus, and two guides, Becky and Rebecca. When we left the bus we split into the two separate groups, each with its own guide. Our guide explained the highlights of each site in great detail. We felt that there was just the right amount if time spent at each site.
Toour guides were excellent and extremely knowledgeable . They made the day very pleasant and interesting.
This is an amazing tour. The skip the line bit really is a VIP service - we did not queue once! We had 2 diferent guides - both American and their level of knowledge was astounding. They could not do enough to ensure everyone was catered for and had opportunities to ask questions. Embarrasingsly I cannot remember the name of the morning guide (Christina maybe?) but both her and Rebecca were great. If you want to udnerstand all about the Vatican then this trip is well worth the money.
Worth not waiting in line! Went on Monday, too crowded. Cruise ships in Rome on Monday. Hard to appreciate b/c of crowds, but was beautiful and amazing. Guide was great. Next time would do private tour of Sistene Chapel, there were too many people in such a small room. Next time will do garden tour
This was a great tour. We avoided all of the logistics of getting into the museums and got great commentary from our guide. The afternoon tours were also very well done and a bit more relaxed, with no crowds. Very informative, very well done. I would highly recommend.
Stunning. Excellentvalue. Rachel was brilliant, passionate and really interesting and very respectful of the holy places.
Wonderful tour. Laura, our guide, was able to provide us with fascinating information. You have time after the morning tour to explore more of the Vatican before the afternoon tour begins. Take that time to explore on your own. Although possibly because we have been to the Vatican before, the highlight of our day was the afternoon tour of four Basilicas and the 28 steps of Pontius Pilate, guided by Tiffany. Beautiful Churches and amazing history, I highly recommend this tour.
