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.
The tour guides were great. I would really recommend this company again. We had Rachel in the morning and Lindy in the afternoon, and both of them were top notch.
This was a great tour. Highly recommend. We had two great tour guides one in the AM and Mossimo for the afternoon portion of our tour. Mossimo was awesome - learned a great deal.
This was an incredible tour. Our guide for the 1st part of the tour (the walking) was Angelica. She was well informed and spoke very good English. What a blessing NOT to be waiting in those long lines!! The second part was the bus tour with Julia. She too was very informative and both had a nice sense of humor also. There was a lot of walking for the first part, but a nice break in the afternoon riding to the Basilicas on the Air Conditioned bus!! Long day but well worth it. Would highly recommend this tour!!!
Both tour guides were really informative and entertaining. Amazing tour!
Vatican tour in a day was a great experience.
Our tour guides were both very well informed and communicated well. In particular, Rebbeca (red hair from Massachusetts) did a great job on the tour outside of the Vatican
We took this one day tour with a visit to the Vatican in the morning and the three major Basilicas in the afternoon. Our guide in the morning, Julianna was excellent. She was by far the best guide we had. Her remarks and historical detail was excellent. The afternoon tour was very enjoyable and a must see.
This is a very culturally rich tour - I certainly learned a lot.
This tour was absolutely fabulous, it was so well organised, our tour guides Laurie and Tiffany were both fantastic - they offered so much information, they were full of amusing stories, guided us smoothly through the crowds and kept our attention and interest throughout the day - I was a little concerned about the length of the tour but, it went so quickly and we loved every minute of it - DO NOT go to the Vatican and not do this tour - it is a MUST, thanks for a brilliant day and lots of special memories xx

We absolutely loved this tour because it gave us a greater understanding and respect for our Catholic faith!. Both guides were excellent but we took a particular liking to the guide named Rebecca (she was warm, caring and authentic in every respect)!! We just wish we would have "tipped" Rebecca at the end of the tour.
My husband and I took the Vatican tour in the morning with an experienced guide, Laura, who made the Vatican Museum, Sistene Chapel and St. Peter's Basilica even more meaningful. She shared so many stories and explanations she made our trip so interesting. Then in the afternoon we took a tour of the three Basilica's outside the Vatican walls with Rebecca. Her passion for this history and art made us feel her enthusiasm for the subject. Excellent tours!
Excellent. Well worth spending the money on this tour. We skipped the lines and had a passionate , enthusiastic guide in the morning...; Gigi, and in the afternoon we had Anna who was charming and knowledgeable. A tiring day but very well organized
Wow!! A fabulous place to visit. To do it without a tour guide would be foolish.
