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.

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!!!!

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.

Valery was an amazing well informed tour guide. Loved that part. Really well structured tour and sharp fellow. Lovely style with people.

The St. Peter and #39;s portion of the tour started very late and ultimately was a waste of money compared to other tours of the basilica I have had in the past.

This was our first visit to Vatican City. I booked the tickets online before our trip. We did the first tour in the morning to avoid some of the crowds. We didn't have any problem finding the tour meeting place. Our guide Catalina spoke great English. She had good stories to tell about St Peter's Basilica. We went to the top of the dome. Be aware that to get to the top of the dome there are lots of narrow stairs. I think that it is worth the climbing you get to see the mosiacs up close and the view from the very top is fantastic.

The tour of St Peters Bascillica was great. Both tour guides where friendly and full of great information. My time in Rome was limited to a Saturday visit, I was
Scheduled on the 830 am tour, the crowds weren and #39;t bad to start but greatly increased as the morning progressed.

This was a very well organized and informative tour, even though there were so many people around on the day. our guide was able to gently manoeuvre us through the crowds to give us the best possible views and explanations for what we were seeing.

Must-do! Our guide expertly guided us through the crowds to the highlights, and the view from the dome is amazing, especially since nothing can be higher than the dome.

We had an 11 AM tour - St Peter's was crowded so it was wonderful to have a reserved tour lined up. Our tour guide was great! She took us through St Peters and provided great background on the many sights in the church. Then, we climbed the stairs to the top of the dome and enjoyed perfect views of the wonderful city of Rome. If you want to go back into St Peter's after the tour, the ticket is still good. Enjoy!

This tour was fabulous! Our guide Michaela did an excellent job and managed a difficult situation perfectly. She made the tour special for all of us even though one guest was quite challenging. Top notch!

Catalina, our tour guide, is highly educated, highly professional, and exacting in her vast knowledge and very personable. She is a pleasure and made this tour very satisfying. The Top of the Dome is well worth it. Thank you!!

Guide Cosmo was wonderful - gave lots of insights into the Basilica. The views from the top of the Cupola were the best we got in Rome. Definitely recommend this tour as opposed to navigating Basilica on your own.

I was very happy with the tour. It was not a huge group, it was easy to follow the guide and understand her via the intercom. We got a very comprehensive history of the basilica, but I am sure we could have spend three times the time there hearing about each mosaic and statue. Even though I have vertigo I did manage to get to the top of the dome. Half way through ascend you go inside the basilica about 40-50 meters high and look down inside. That was probably the most scary part for me. The steps going up could be a bit claustrophobic. Up in the dome I was standing back against the wall and I could easily manage it. The view worth it all.
