Not having to wait in the hours long line was marvelous! The audio guide was comprehensive, easy to follow and the ability to listen to all or parts of it mad it easy to adjust to our slightly limited time schedule.
The only downside of this experience was a bit of difficulty in finding the exact location to sign in and begin our tour. If that area was more easily found, this would be a perfect experience.

Overall, an excellent experience. The Viator people were helpful and efficient at gathering us up at the appointed spot, ushering us through the security scan separately from the main lines, and delivering us to the Viator audio guide center. Once we had our audio guides we entered a practically empty St Peter's Basilica at approximately 0930. We did the easily understandable audio guide in reverse to get away from the entrance crowds. The audio guide was at a level of detail not obtainable with a guided tour since there is always a time constraint in moving on. Again, overall a wonderful experience worth the expense. My only critical comment is that both of the audio guides were at full volume, and did not adjust. However, we did not exchange the guides and just used one earbud. The earbud's iPhone audio control did not operate either. Once done, the audio guide turn in table was easy to find and we were off to the dome Coppola elevator and subsequent walk up the stairs to the top which I highly recommend for a first time visitor if you can handle the physical work climbing up the stairs. Would highly recommend Viator to anyone visiting Rome.

Very informative way to tour this beautiful church at your own pace. I highly recommend it!


5 star rating: Highly Recommended October 2017

This is a skip the line entry, not a tour. Which was perfect for us. The guide was on time at the meeting point, gave us our tickets and instructions on when and how to enter the Basilica. The Basilica is beautiful.


5 star rating: Highly Recommended October 2017

A must see for anyone visiting Rome and the Viator tour is well organised worth paying to skip the line

Loved, Loved this! My goodness get the no wait access as the other lines to get in were enormous. An amazing, beautiful and breath taking sight. We then paid to go up into the dome and onto the roof. I must say the tiny stairs up inside the dome wasn't for the faint hearted and one older lady was struggling. If you are fit and healthy yes do this, the top of the inside of the dome and the art was exquisite then outside where the huge statues are is breathtaking! Don't wait, do this tour!
