Our guide Seraphina was knowledgeable, passionate and patient. With her guidance we were able to see all of the highlights without feeling rushed or crowded. Highly recommend the private tour over a group tour.
This was the way to go. We were a group of 8 and our tour guide was amazing getting us up close and providing information that was most important.
This tour was a great way to see the Vatican- our guide did a great job of explaining the artwork and architecture- it was evident that she was very knowledgeable and passionate about the entire experience. She was open to any questions that we have had, and was patient while we took photos, etc. All in all money well spent and a great experience.
I was very impressed with my tour. The guide knew everything I needed and wanted to know and I would recommend her to anyone without reservation.
Our tour guide Manuela was amazing. My mother was having problems walking. she arranged for her to get a wheelchair. she changed the tour to fit being with someone that was in a wheelchair. she was extremely knowledgeable about the Vatican, but also gave us tips about other places that we would be visiting on our trip. We booked the private tour and it was so worth it. I will use Viator next time I am traveling!
Best way to see the Vatican, especially with the August heat and very large crowds of bus tours and walk ins. As a private tour we were able to skip what was not interesting to us and linger over what was, we were also able to see all we wanted to see. Our guide was wonderful and quite knowledgeable, worth every penny. Highly Recommend.
We had a wonderful tour. We had to switch the times at the last minute, so instead of getting our private tour, we got a small group of 12 people and it was lovely. The guide was extremely knowledgeable and was able to answer all our questions. We did 4 tours while we were in Italy and were so glad we paid for the tours with the Skip the Line option. We traveled in August and there were long lines everywhere we went and it was very, very hot. The tours we did were well worth the money we spent and I would highly recommend them to anyone.
The best way to see the Vatican! There are so many people visiting this site everyday but since we had our very own Tour Guide we saw everything we wanted and then some without being mixed in the with the over whelming crowds.
The Vatican had been closed for two days prior to our visit and the crowds were massive, but our guide was able to slip us artfully through the thousands of people and deliver an excellent and thourough history and description of key points of interest, I highly reccomend the private tour.
Doing a private tour for my group of 4 was the best decision we made during our trip. Our guide was an art history major in addition to being born and raised in Rome. She has also traveled to and lived in other European countries and gave a good perspective on our upcoming travels. And yes we did skip lines and the mass herding of people through our tour. Can't say enough good things.
This tour was absolutely totally worth it! We had an amazing tour guide Anna who catered the tour to our interests, showed us all the little quirks and cool things along the way! We were worried about the lines and the crowds, but she expertly and seamlessly lead us through them, and made our lives super easy and relaxed we went in July!. We are so glad that we included this tour as part of our trip to Rome it made the trip that much more amazing.
Our guide was excellent Big Mama She focussed on the important things and read us well by spending more time where we had a special interest in. She also had a lot more interesting information that she researched available on her iPad. We can highly recommend her. Dries la Grange and co travellers
We had a fantastic private tour with Ursus. He was extremely knowledgeable and tailored the 3 hour tour to our interests. It was hot and crowded, but he knew special passages and ways to get us through quickly. He was friendly and attentive from the beginning when he welcomed us right straight through to the end. We would highly recommend this tour and this guide.
Silvia was a very professional and excellent guide. This is my third visit to the Vatican and the best expierence. We really enjoyed her knowledge.

The tour was amazing. Our tour guide Frank went above and beyond to make this tour the perfect day. Thank you Frank.
Loved our guide and her sense of humor ..informative and kept us on our toes ... Will definitely do it this way and this way only ....
We thoroughly enjoyed this tour and tour guide was great. Highly recommend this. B
great experience absolutely worth spending the little bit of extra money to get a private guide- made horrible crowds bearable.
Eva our guide was a delight! Knowledgeable, passionately engaged by the subject of our tour and super nice. Highly recommend her!
We loved having Biliana Hristova as our guide for the day at the Vatican. She was so knowledgeable. We're not sure how she can keep so much information in her head. Just amazing! Highly recommend Biliana! We liked her so much we hired her again the next day for the Colosseum and the Roman Forum.
