Great tour and spectacular views. We went early and so missed all of the larger crowds.
Worth the money and time. View is amasing, super organised inbetween soooo many people
The Skip the Line: St Peter's Basilica Walking Tour Including Views from the Top of the Dome was Amazing! I would highly recommend taking this tour! Not only do you get to learn about the Church's rich history from a small group tour guide, you will also get to climb the cupola and have breathtaking views of all of Rome.
Great views from the top, after a climb up some very narrow staircases. The guides were excellent.
Our guide was Mercedes who was the best guide on our tour. My only complaint was the directions on how to find the tour. They were terrible. The reservation should include a map with a red dot noting were they are located. Wasted a lot of time and energy finding them.
Great tour! We visited St. Peter's Bascilica on our own the day before and we are so glad we decided to book this tour.
We enjoyed St. Peter's Bascilica way more with this great tour. Note there are a lot of steps and you must keep up with the group pace.
This was our best tour while visiting Italy! Our guide Amil, was her name, I believe spoke good English and did an excellent job explaining everything. We were provided headsets, so we were always able to hear her clearly, even when we weren't right next to her. The tour included the top of the dome, which was awesome - just be sure you can climb stairs because there are a lot of them! I recommend this tour!
Worth the visit. If offers something to everyone, whether you are religious or simply like to learn about the history of the Basilica and the Popes. There is a lot of walking so wear comfortable shoes. Also, since this is a religious site, please be respectful of the site and those who are worshiping. Observe decorum, dress comfortably, but conservatively dress code is strictly enforced.
Great tour. Best part is the Views from the top! Getting to the top is also Fun!
This was amazing. . Our guide Valeria was really enthusiastic, knowledgeable and had a great way with words, bringing the history lesson to life. Not to be missed
Highly recommend the Basilica tour and trip to the to of the Dome. Our guide, Amil, was very informative and kept the tour itself fun. Skipping the line was worth it to us ... Can't imagine waiting in the lines for hours.
Mostly well-organised - some confusion about which group we were in initially. After that all excellent and well worth the money to skip the line. I have been before and I learnt new things about this amazing building although didn't find the tour as comprehensive as my previous one. The views over Rome are wonderful!
Fantastic tour of the Basilica and the Dome.
This trip is in two parts:
1. The Basilica - this was a fantastic tour, our guide was highly knowledgeable and his English was excellent. All the highlights of the Basilica were pointed out an any questions answered.
2. The Dome- before starting I have to point out that this is not for the feint hearted and requires a certain level of fitness. The tour begins with a short trip in a lift which takes out 200 steps. The next leg of the journey upwards consists of 300 steps upwards with not many resting places. Now for the good stuff, shortly after starting the second part of the trip you access the inside of the Dome where all the highlights of the interior are pointed out, the visitors below are the size of ants. Then its onwards and upwards to the top. The views are amazing, well worth the journey to the top I would not have missed this.
Overall the Tour was fantastic, the two guides were really great and there English was perfect.
Our Group was only about 11 people so you really felt you were getting one to one attention at all times. Access to the Basilica at the start was effortless, particularly when you saw the queue's of people waiting outside.
All in all 5 out of 5 and I would have no hesitation of booking a tour with Viator again.
It was and excellent experience. Our tour guide was a professional in all terms. We learned a lot and enjoyed our visit to the Basilica.
Our tour guide forgot her name - sorry was wonderful!!!! She was so informative and you could tell that she really enjoyed what she did and had a passion for history. Being able to be in the Sistine Chapel for 30 minutes with a group of 12 was wonderful and so special. This tour was well worth the price because it was a once in a lifetime to see the Sistine Chapel with so few people. Our guide explained so much about the paintings - my whole family felt that this was the highlight of our trip in Rome!!!! I can't say enough good things about our guide!!!!
Great tour. Guide was excellent, well versed in the subject matter. She was extremely personable and cared about the people on the tour.
This was a fabulous tour. Viewing the entire Vatican City from the top of St. Peter's Dome was something I will not soon forget. We would definitely use Viator again when we are in need of a tour. Our tour guide I apologize for forgetting her name was outstanding.
