Tour was Sunday between 1 and 3. Arrived at the Square at 1:30. Had to wait in 90 degree get for over an hour. No aviator agents ()I followed the instruction and looked for them) anywhere to be seen to bypass the huuuuge line. Toughed it out, got through security, again looked for the blue jackets--nope. Then to checkin desk. Staff super helpful. Didn't know we'd have to use our cell phones to use the wifi there to download a Vox City app and then down load the self-guided tour. Have latest Apple phones but still tookat least 15 mins to do that. Would have been nice to tell us to down load at least the app ahead of time. The narrative program was xcellent. But this is touted as no wait and it was most definitely NOT
Found our entrance without difficulty based on instructions. We did skip the line out in the sun, nearly 100 degrees that day. Not sure if we were able to skip the line for the dome, was not clear and we were on a time crunch, so we didn't get to do this. We would not have seen if had not been for the skip the line!
We got our skip the line tickets early and when we arrived there were people everywhere,we were told there was a 2 hour wait to enter the Basilica and when we showed our tickets we were inside within 5 minutes.The Basilica itself is awesome photos do it no justice you have to see it to believe it.
Waited and waited for the tour guide to show up but to no avail. Called the emergency number and got a recording that eventually cut us off. Exhausted, we asked the information desk to call on our behalf, they too got a recording to call back during business hours. Called someone in the US and asked them to call the local 1800 number. Viator assured a refund, went backwards and forwards with a gentleman named Reymond with Viator who basically told be I was "confused." If there was a negative number of stars I could give, I would have given them. PLEASE be careful with the tour operator VOX MUNDI, in my opinion, they are not legitimate. It is scary that the emergency number was a recording. Tried tirelessly to get a refund but was eventually denied by Viator. I have booked 9 tours through Viator for this vacation, and VOX MUNDI was the only one that gave us any trouble. I am extremely disappointed as this was our only chance to go to this location in Rome. BE CAREFUL, this does not seem like an honest tour company and I speak from personal experience.
we are very sorry you had problems with our company which is the only and exclusive agent for the Basilica of St. Peter in the Vatican.
We do not have respond with any recorded message asking to call during business hrs and I am afraid there was missunderstanding with the nr dialed.
By all means your satisfaction is essential and our target is to have 100% satisfied guest. We are sorry we could not prove how good we are in bringing happiness to guest doing our tours and we wish to have a second chanche in the future.
