Great sunrise breakfast, and the tour beat the crowds. It was an amazing experience, and our guide was excellent! I would highly recommend this tour!
This tour was worth every penny and definitely worth the 5:00 a.m. wake up call! Breakfast was lovely, missing the crowds priceless, and our guide, Rachel, was a joy; not only was she absolutely charming, she was also very knowledgeable. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone visiting Rome.
The tourguide Rebecca? was excellent. She had an archeaology background and was able to provide meaningful historical context to the art in the Vatican Museum without overwhelming us with information. I would definitely book a tour led by her again.
This was certainly worth it, guide was very good, there is just no way around the massive crowds and when the Pope has something special, St Peters is closed, so be prepared to wait it out, which we did for three hours.We were there for 81/2 hours, not for the people who can not walk long distances, or stand long. Drinks are only cool and lines long to get one.
The tour was very worthwhile. We saw great Vatican highlights and our English speaking guide, Rachel was amazing providing interesting insights all the way. I recommend this to do. Breakfast was great too!
Best tour on our entire trip. Our Guide was fabulous. What a superb way to see the Vatican. Would definitely recommend this to a friend. Breakfast was delicious and the tour was perfect. Our guide kept 2 teenagers and the rest of the group engaged the entire time.
The breakfast was excellent and the setting was fantastic. We enjoyed having the Vatican almost to ourselves, it added to the experience by allowing you to really appreciate the surroundings without having to bump into hundreds of other people. Our guide was excellent and provided us with a wealth of information. This tour is a must do if you want to experience the Vatican Museum at a slower pace.
Tiffany was absolutely amazing. Considerate, thoughtful and full of bounce and enthuasism. She was passionate about her work and her knowledge was amazing.... Lucky us getting her as a guide. Best wishes for October Tiffany.
One of the highlights of our trip to Rome, a very special tour that I would highly recommend. You won't get another chance to eat a delicious breakfast in a beautiful courtyard inside the Vatican. We had the BEST tour guide too, Tiffani, who was extremely knowledgeable and passionate. Wonderful!
Wow! This tour was fantastic! Breakfast was amazing (greet pancakes) and the early entry unbeatable. Our guide Rachel didn't rush to the Sistine Chapel like other groups, but gave us the rich history and key facts on our way. We still reached the chapel before the big crowds arrived. A can't miss!
The breakfast at the Vatican tour with early access was wonderful ... our guide, Rachel, was full of knowledge and enthusiasm and we learnt so much!
There are rare priceless experiences that only money can buy. Lucky for us, this is one of them. This tour was worth every dollar and certainly was VIP all the way! No crowds, no queues, no hassles! Our guide Susanna was knowledgable, considerate and fantastic. The breakfast was out of this world. I'm not sure there could be a better way to experience the immense treasures of the Vatican. And would go so far as to say this is a do-not-miss experience for every tourist and pilgrim.
Tour was amazing, Tiffany is a keeper, very, very good tour guide. Tour was well worth the time and money.
This is how I've been recommending people see the Vatican ever since our visit. The early morning can be a pain, but it's so worth it to just walk right in at sunrise and have a little breakfast before getting ahead of the crowds. Our guide was AMAZING and she was able to share so much new and refresh some old information as well as keep the entire morning light and comfortable. She was one of the best guides we've ever had and when we finished the tour, stepped outside, and saw the lines going down the block we knew we made the right choice.
This was a 5 star tour. Lenghthy, and a limited number of people per tour. This included the Sistine Chapel who our tour leader met with us after breakfast in the courtyard to tell us about the Sistine Chapel because you cannot speak inside the Chapel. I think between 4 of us we took over 7000 photos, I am sure many are duplicates, and yet very interesting. The heat did not help this tour progress at all. One in our party laid down his phone, and we are very thankful for people who turned it in and he was able to retrieve it after 3 hours. Review is 5 star.
This was a very good tour. Our guide, Dario, was very knowledgable, spoke excellent English and was polite and respectful of the religious nature of the location. I hope you are lucky enough to get him. Cathy
Great experience, so cool to eat breakfast in the courtyard of the Vatican! Blue food was terrible, but we didn't care. The tour guide Susana was great, very well informed but didn't talk too much. The start time is early, but definitely worth it
My husband and I loved this tour! The breakfast was wonderful and quiet in the Pinecone courtyard! it was also nice to get in early before the crowd! This was an amazing opportunity to see the Vatican with a lot less people. It did get a little crowded towards the end of the tour, but to be expected. We were there until close to 11:30am after climbing the dome and taking in the views!
The tour was amazing!! And our guide Daniella was awesome.... so knowledgable and she made the tour come to life. The breakfast was really good and a great start to the day.
Would recommend this tour completely, great value, it was the highlight of rome for me.

This tour was extremely professional / enjoyable. Our guide was the well-learned Rosella, who managed our group with clarity, finesse and fun.. Hope City tours/ Viator commend her. Simplify tour end with guidance to the starting point to avoid confusion. The Pine cone Garden breakfast was lovely!
Very good breakfast and superb guide in Susanah. She really knew her stuff, had a great sense of humour, made it all so interesting and was considerate of group member needs. Well done all round. I would definitely recommend this tour as best way to see museums and Sistine chapel in comfort
