Great tour - small group, very informative and our guide was very knowledgable. Highly recommend!
Great tour with a very knowledgeable guide. Since it was December, we did not face the huge summer crowds. Guide met us on time and did not rush us at all. Good day!
This tour was incredible! We had a bit of confusion with the meeting location in the morning meeting point is at a bookstore, but the bookstore is a corner location so we were dropped off by our taxi at the store and din't realize our actual meeting location was just around the corner. We figured it out and met our wonderful guide Nadia to find we were the only participants of this tour, so we were rated to a very personalized experience. Nadia seems to have a wealth of knowledge about the history and significance of the art and sculpture we saw everywhere. We waited only about two to three minutes for her to purchase tickets, then were ushered right past all the larger tour groups, so we did indeed skip the line. This made for a much better experience overall, and allowed us to focus on what we wanted to see. Once in the museum, Nadia found a quiet corner to sit down with us and explain the art we would see in the Sistine Chapel, using an iPad to show examples and explain the significance of the art. since there is no talking allowed inside the Sistine Chapel itself, it was nice to be given advance information so we would grasp the significance of what we were seeing. Fascinating stories behind all this art. We finished with the chance to see the changing of the Swiss guard near the entrance to St Peter's Basilica.
The tour was amazing. Our guide was fabulous. You can't go to the Vatican without a guide. There is just too much history details you won't know. Highly recommend.
Skip the Line is absolutely worth every cent. When we arrived there was a 4 hour wait for general admission.
Wonderful your with only 7 of us. Well worth the money to have things pointed out and explained as well as passing the huge line ups.
What an incredible tour we had - and our guide was outstanding! There is so much to see and so much history was covered in our tour. This was our first visit to the Vatican and we were very happy that we chose this tour!
This tour was awesome! Marco was our tour guide and he was amazing! This was my favourite day spent in Rome , I learned about so many things that I didn't even know exhausted in history! Amazing totally recommend this tour to everyone who wants to see the real truth about Rome and religion
This tour was very well organized. Nadia was so professional. I loved the meeting place. It was secluded away from the busy chaos near the vatican. We started right on time and it was a very tiny group so we were able to get so much individual attention and information. I learned so much during that tour that i have a different outlook on Italy and history as a whole. It was a great tour and I recommend getting the small group option with skip the line for sure. Skip the line access saved us hours of waiting in the hot sun. Great tour!!!
I was very impressed with the knowledge and obvious experience of the guide on the tour.
We were on a small party tour 7 myself , husband and Son, our guide was Laura and she was fantastic, her knowledge and enthusiasm for the entire 3 hours, I don't know how she does it, but this was the tour I was most looking forward to and I could not have been partnered with a better more intersting guide, we started in the Vatican Museum and Laura's explanantions of the art works and sculptures, the artists and the times in their life that the works were done, the relationships with the Popes and other important figures of the time, formed a perfect story in your mind, then as we walked into the Cistine Chapel we were completely overwhelmed by the beauty and complexity of the work of Michaelangelo, it is an experience I will never forget, then we were taken into St Peter's Basilica, which was another breathtaking experience, the further works, chapels and the dome, and of course the Michaelangelos Pieta, his first work !!!!! so beautiful. when the tour was finished my son and I took the walk up into the Dome, it is quite a walk and not for the feint hearted or the claustraphobic but the view from the top was totally amazing and totally worth it. highly recommend this tour, and if you are lucky enough to get Laura as your guide then you are in for a real treat !
What a great way to explore Vatican City! Me and my boyfriend highly enjoyed this excursion. A great and quicker way to see this place. It's great to be in a small group, with one ear piece in your ear and very knowledgeable guide to tell you loads of intersting facts and info about things you would of never knew if you did it on your own. No queuing and waiting around - everything is straight forward. And if you have any questions - your guide will have the answer. Tour lasts around 3h and that was enough for us. We learned loads. Definitely would recommend this tour.
Such a wonderful experience and the tour guide was brilliant, her knowledge was fantastic. Dream come true to visit the Vatican so thank you!
Vincenzo was excellent - great personality, a wealth of information, courteous, and took time to learn about his group. Good pace of the tour and got to hit all the major sights, though I do wish we had a little more time to explore the art with Vincenzo's excellent guidance. Skip the line is 100 worth it.
This was the most amazing experience. The tour guide, Beatrice was so knowledgable and interesting that it was easy to listen to her and understand how everything fell in to place and what the connections were with everything. We were a group of 7 people and this helped us to have a very intimate tour. I would recommend a trip to the Vatican and would definitely recommend this particular tour. Be prepared to be walking for over 3 hours. We covered in the region of 10 miles. We were exhausted ,but extremely happy and glad we had made the effort to do it. I would recommend the early tour and then a hearty lunch of pasta straight after
The tour was good, very crowded in August. Viator was wonderful- we actually got lost and couldn't find our guide again. But viator gave us a full refund and was extremely kind about the whole situation. I would definitely book through viator again.
Excellent guided tour. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and friendly. He spoke very good English, so he was easy to understand. He also answered our questions and allowed sufficient time to enjoy the sites. We had a small group less than 12 which is very important because it is very easy to get left behind in the crowds of people. Because of size of the Vatican and huge crowds, this is one Rome attraction where a tour guide is really worth the expense. Honestly, with a guide you will see twice as much in half the time with a lot less frustration.
Nice tour, is worth the money so you can skip the lines if you are in a hurry like i was, the guide was very experienced and polite, the only thing was we had to wait for about 10 / 15 min since part of the group got lost... we waited most of the time inside the Sistine chapel so... it wasn't wasted time :
Very well organized and very informative. Guide was knowledgeable.
Laura was a fantastic guide. Her knowledge of the Vatican and her fantastic personality made it a wonderful fulfilling experience. A must do if you are visiting the beautiful city of Rome.
Our tour guide went out of her way to personalise our tour of the Vatican, making sure that my sons saw the football exhibits as well as the cars. I really appreciated her commentary and expert help negotiating the Vatican.
