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!
This was a great tour, our tour guide was very knowledgeable and skipping the extremely long lines saved lots of time, Would recommend this
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.
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.
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!
Erik was very knowledgeable and very detailed on his tour. We highly recommend him!
What an exceptional experience! Tonia was fantastic - informed, energetic and entertaining! This was our first tour with Viator, but definitely not our last!
The tour was wonderful. Erik made the Vatican tour easy, engaging, and interesting,. He gave it depth, and managed to make sense of a 2.5 hour tour that covered an enormous amount of marerial. He had us look deeply into a few things that engaged my teenagers deeply.
Jumbug United States of ...
I highly recommend this tour our tour guide Mario was fantastic. If I had more thumbs I would give this tour and our guide 100 thumbs up. Definitely worth seeing and please ask for mario.
Amazing tour! We had a great day jam packed with history and sights. Our fantastic tour guide Elaine had a wealth of knowledge and was very informative. This tour was money well spent!
Awesome tour. Guide, Erik was very knowledgeable and articulate. Marina was very friendly and accommodating.
So much to see. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable. Definitely worth the money and skipping the line
Although there were more people than we expected in our tour group we had an AWESOME guide.They actually switched her schedule for the day to be with us because she is one of the best and could range our group. I recall her name is Tonia at Italy with us
I would highly suggest having a tour guide for the Vatican. With this much history - its super helpful to have context as you walk though. Also, skipping the line of course is worth it - or else you feel like you are being cattled in and a bit like lost snowflakes.
We had Tonia as our guide who was knowledgeable and engaging - she was terrific,
Erik is an excellent guide exceptionally knowledgeable and articulate.
I would definitely recommend this tour. My boyfriend and I had a fantastic experience with Elaine our guide who was very knowledgable and informative about a variety of exhibitions within the vatican. The tour is 3 hours long but we could have spent at least another day there as there is so much to see. However it would be completely pointless to walk around aimlessly without a guide.
The tour ended up being pretty much a private tour as the other four in our group had to leave early and so it was ideal! I would book this if going to the vatican, especially if you want to skip the line!
We got so much out of this trip !.We were given radios and expertly guided through the crowds by Cesare .With information given about the Sistine Chapel in the relative peace of the gardens we knew what to look out for when we entered the chapel.I cannot recommend this trip and Cesare highly enough !!
Tour guide was incredible, Vatican was amazing, will go to Rome again
We had a wonderful guide who was very knowledgeable about art, the museums, and the Sistine Chapel. This is the first time that we ever used Viator. Based on this experience we will use them again anytime that we travel. Excellent!
Francisco was tour guide and was glad he gave such an excellent perspective from his wealth of information. I felt I got the best of seeing and appreciating the Vatican Museum--it is so vast and there are only so many hours to see this amazing institution. I am so glad I did this tour and felt I got my money's worth to experience the best highlights and I learned a lot along the way.
