Our tour guide Elaine was great, very knowledgeable, good sense of humor. Glad we did it or we would have gone away without knowing what we were looking at or the history behind it esp. the Sistine Chapel.

Nothing is better than a tour guide who is passionate about the content of the tour - Manuela was just that tour guide! She had so much information to share with us and just loved every second of it. She was willing to answer all questions and took good care of our group. She takes this to heart and it is evident during the tour. We saw so much at the Vatican, and while it was crowded, Manuela was still able to give us a great experience. The art there in front of your is simply amazing, just incredible!

We absolutely loved our tour! If you don't have all day or the desire to spend all day at the Vatican this tour is perfect to show you the highlights. We loved our tour guide Erik and were so impressed with his knowledge and perspective.

If you're going to the Vatican, it's really the best way to see all the most important parts without missing something big. Our tour guide was an amazing older gentleman that you could tell had a passion for the history of the place. Vatican City has so much history, it would be hard to see it all in one day, this tour gives the major highlights and lets you appreciate its grandeur.


5 star rating: Highly Recommended August 2016

This tour was amazing! Eric was our tour guide and he was very knowledgeable and answered all of our questions. This is really the best way to go when deciding to visit the Vatican because you could easily get overwhelmed and lost if trying to visit on your own. I appreciate the fact that you get an in depth background of the history and the art. We visited St. Peter's on our own and there are no words to express the beauty that we witnessed. FYI.. the meeting place for the tour is in the Piazza before you get to the Vatican so make sure you read the small print. Our taxi driver took us to the meeting point across the street and we had to take another taxi back down the hill. Thank you for a memorable experience.


5 star rating: Highly Recommended August 2016

Our tour guide was wonderful! She gave our group a very thorough description and historical background of each spot/monument/painting/significant anything without overloading us with information! We loved it, and would recommend it for any size group. Viator made the process very simple and pleasant. Thank you for a fantastic experience!

Elaine was a fantastic tour guide. She has a passion for her job and it showed with her very detailed and entertaining tour of the Vatican. The tour was definitely a highlight of our 3 weeks vacation through Europe. I would highly recommend this tour, and if we're in Rome again I'd probably take it again!
