From the very beginning we knew that we were in for a vip tour.
So much information but still allowing you time to digest it all. Our tour guide was amazing and made our 4 hours go by too quickly.

For a first time visit to the Viatican Museum the early start tour one hour before the general public is allowed in is a bonus. We had the Pinoteca all to ourselves. Amara our guide was very knowledgeable and showed us the most important works of art. The Sistine Chapel awaits you at the end.

Francesca our guide was brilliant. Enjoyed all of the tour - though sometimes the quantity of people was annoying not everywhere was as quiet as the staircase. Well worth the extra cost, recommend this tour to anyone.

Excellent tour - highly recommend it. Our guide was extremely knowledgeable, and her English was great, so she was very easy to understand. We did this tour in late September when the crowds were not as heavy as the summer months, but the Vatican was still packed nonetheless. I am glad we did the early morning tour, as i could not imagine how crowded it would have been had we started later in the morning.

OMG, the very best tour that we did in the entire 7 weeks of tours and adventures. The guide was really knowledgeable and looked after the group well. She was informative and shared her knowledge freely, thus bringing the art to life and putting it all in historical context. I learnt heaps and would do it again in an instant. Money well spent. Clear and accurate instructions for meeting at the beginning.

This tour is worth every penny. Our English speaking City Wonder tour guide, Iri (I hope it' correct spelling) is so passionate and knowledgeable. There was literally no wait and we just walked right in. Iri explained the Renaissance and baroque ages so clearly and 4 hours went by so quickly.

Excellent tour. The guide was extremely knowledgeable. I would never have done the Vatican with out a tour. It is just too huge. Always be sure you get a legitimate guide that has been licensed and tested. There are a lot of fly by night people out there.

Our tour lasted 4.5 hours and we saw an enormous amount of highlights of course there is so much to see, but the tour gave us a good impression of the richness. Our tour guide Ursus was very knowledgable and pointed out a great many details we would have missed otherwise. This made the tour very interesting.

I loved this tour. We took it in June 2017. It was very detailed and the best part of it was starting early in the morning. We started off in the Pinacoteca gallery in the morning which was so wonderful because it was empty and I literally got to stand in front of the original Raphael's Transfiguration on its altar piece. This tour goes into a lot of detailed history about the art from early Etruscans as well. I loved that we spent the first half of the tour in the private galleries because we could go into a lot of history without the noise of 1000 other people around. The Bramante staircase was cool too and had a pretty view. Later, we go into all of the popular galleries of maps and tapestries and that can get really crowded as you meet up with the general public but the best part about it was that our tour guide prepped us way ahead of time earlier in the morning in the quieter private galleries on how to approach looking at the art from a historical perspective so you don't have to struggle with the crowds. The sistine chapel is quite amazing. I also loved St. Peter's Basilica, specifically looking at Michelangelo's Pieta - absolutely stunning! Would recommend this tour to any art history lover!!

What can I say, it is the Vatican! Amazing amounts of art! This tour helped us miss long lines, and while the Vatican was extremely crowded we got to see everything they promised on the tour.

This was the second tour of the Vatican Museums that my wife and I have taken. And it was our favorite. Seeing the Rafael rooms and the extras were amazing. The tour guide was very knowledgeable and was happy to answer questions. Would definitely do another tour the same guide

This was likely our 4th or 5th tour of Vatican. There is just so much to see - you must do it in segments.
I selected this tour to see more of the Museum works and the Bramante staircase. Our guide name ? was fantastic - extremely knowledgeable and professional. Outstanding tour with access to areas not open to general public. The Etruscan exhibits were most impressive - gold artwork amazing. The Bramante Staircase was very cool. Probably our 10th or more tour on Viator - always impressed with tour guides and execution of tour.

This tour was absolutely amazing. Our guide Rossi was very knowledgeable and able to provide more details when we asked. She was enthusiastic and genuinely loved what she was doing. We were able to spend 15 minutes in the Sistine Chapel even though it was a busy day. This was a fantastic value.

Excellent. Our guide, Francesca, was extremely knowledgeable and just a delight to be with. The Vatican is a must see and except for the large, very rude, crowds was a total pleasure. Obviously, nothing the tour operator can do about the crowds. I will do this tour again if I return to Rome.

We did the early morning tour and were very happy we did. Rome is busy in May. The directions on where to meet were good we got there early and not long after we arrived our tour guides where there. We started out in the museum the guide was were knowledgeable and shared the history of the art and the museums with us. There is so much to see in the museum but you never miss out on what the guide says each person has a audio receiver and ear plugs and she did a great job of keeping track of us. The view from to of the Bramante staircase is amazing. They end the tour in St Peters Basilica which is nice if you want to stay a little longer there you can. I would recommend this tour if you want to see the Vatican especially if your days in Rome are short you see a lot and get a lot of information so you can appreciate what your seeing.
