This was a terrific way to skip the lines, get fabulous views of the city from the Cupola and enjoy St Peter's Basilica. Tour guide was very knowledgeable and our party of 2 got great value.

Our guide was very good. We loved the view from the cupola and enjoyed learning about St. Peter's Basilica. Although the lines weren't long at 8:30, by the time we left around 10:30 they were terrible. I feel the information we get from our guide is well worth the cost of the tour. We just can't learn everything on our own.

This was a really great tour. Our guide was Antonia. She was the best tour guide I've ever had. Others in the group also made comments to the same effect. I'd thoroughly recommend this tour.

Our guide for the St. Peter's Basilica Walking Tour was excellent...He went into great detail...Our guide, Mercedes, for the Cupola Tour was also quite good...and very accommodating. The views were breath taking. It was the last day of our vacation...and it ended on a perfect note. I would highly recommend Viator. I booked this tour 24 hours beforehand...and they didn't miss a beat.

Fabulous time of day to go - 8.30am. Tour guides punctual and speak very good English. Cuppola is definitely worth the climb. Overall - the tour was exceptionally good. Would highly recommend.

This was the highlight of my visit to Rome. My guide Sylvia was so well informed and could communicate so well it just made the whole tour so memorable. The climb up was not that bad at all. We started at 8 30am thus the crowds weren't that big until towards the end of the tour. The feeling of standing on top of St Peter's overlooking the square is just amazing. If you are not scared of heights this is truly worth it .

We were in Rome Aug 2014. The line ups to almost any thing is long. One of the main benefits of booking a tour is the ability to skip these long (and I mean LONG) line ups which is often in the sun. St Peter's Basilica is just simply on those MUST SEE places in Rome. There is nothing as spectacular as this church. We also walked up the 300 + steps and 1 short elevator ride to the top of the dome. You get some pretty spectacular views of the Vatican Colonnade and the surrounding outside areas. Also you are able to see the mosaics in the dome up close which is worth the price of this tour. You get such a better perspective of the art, mosaics and the size of this place by going up the dome. Highly recommend this tour.

Very good tour guide, she spoke very well English, explained everything in details. I bought my tickets with Viator in advance so I wouldn't have to wait in line so when we got there it went fast we didn't have to wait.

This was very well organized and the tour guide was exceptional. One small note---we were well prepared for the steps and physical activity but I was not warned about the claustrophobia---Very small spaces in the dome during the climb! Spend as much time as you can at the top of the cupola---the views are breath-taking. And the tombs are a must. This is a FULL DAY of sight seeing and learning.

Just great. Met on time at allocated place, skipped the line and had a really good young tour guide (Benjamin) to show us around the dome and then inside the Basilica. It was a great trip and one to be recommended.

We loved this tour. Climbing to the top of the Basilica was awesome. Our tour guide provided a lot of useful information about St Peter's.
