Outstanding tour guide. She was extremely knowledgeable, interesting and thorough. Recommended.
Outstanding tour! Going to locations not seen by the public and learning little known facts about the Vatican were very interesting. And then the highlight was our small group's alone time in the Sistine Chapel where our wonderful guide Tiffany provided a detailed explanation of the paintings. Totally exceeded our expectations!
This tour is very recommended to any person interested in Vatican museum and all masterpieces of art present in these buiding. Tiffany, our guide, was very well informed, giving us a lot of great details and we enjoyed her presence. The small group favorise an easy move inside the large among of tourists present in the museum. The secret rooms seen were interesting (Bramante stairs, 2 unpublic Raphael's room and the Sixtine Chapel after the public closing). We shared the Sixtine Chapel with some Vatican guest for half of our private time, but this sharing permit us to take some photographs when it is normally not allowed (permission given by Vatican guard and it is not an automatic permission). We saw the major sections of Vatican museum and it was a great experience.
This tour is a life changing event! To be in the Sistine chapel with only 10 people for over 30 minutes is emotionally overwhelming. Tiffany, our tour guide had perfect timing, guiding us thru the Vatican museum behind the crowds, the Bramante stair case, the Raphael rooms, and then last, the Sistine chapel. It took me a week before I could describe the experience without getting tearful. It truly is awe inspiring and absolutely EVERYTHING I hoped it would be. Thanks much Tiffany!! Sharon and family
Unbelievably knowledgeable tour guide. I'm so sorry I forget her name, but she is from Ireland. She knew so much of the history of the Vatican and the Sistine Chapel and many astounding facts. Very friendly, perky and easy to talk to. She deserves huge kudos for her presentation and professionalism. I want more tours with her, when I come back to Rome.
The premium cost of this tour was WELL worth it. Words can't describe to be in the Sistine Chapel with only 10 other people. FANTASTIC
Rachel was an outstanding guide! To experience the Sistine Chapel alone was something we will never forget.
Our tour guide for the Vatican, Shannon, was outstanding, knowledgeable, witty and concerned that our experience was grade A. And it was, We completely recommend this tour, the thrill of going into the more private areas of the Vatican was an event we will never forget. We had planned this months ago and looked forward to it. Our expectations were met. Great job Viator...very worth while.
The best tour ever!! Our tour guide, Lara, was wonderful and fun. She was very knowledgeable and helpful. We had access to several rooms that are not open to the public, in addition to the beautiful terrace overlooking Rome.It was a jaw dropping experience to see the Sistine Chapel privately. We will repeat this tour on every trip to Rome, and ask for Lara as the guide.
Our favorite tour! The Sistine Chapel with just a small group was the highlight. Also, our guide, Tiffany, was excellent!
The private viewing was amazing and our guide, Rachel, was great. We couldn't have asked for a better experience!
This tour was truly amazing. I would highly recommend. This will be one tour i will never forget! Thanks!!!!
Fantastic! Almost 45 minutes in the Sistine Chapel, a highly recommended tour!
A must do due to the large crowds. Your tour group enters and tours through the areas quietly as the hordes of people are leaving the building. To be in the areas with less than a dozen people is truly an amazing experience. Our tour guide had immense knowledge and was more than happy to share it with us.
