The line was huge the day we took the tour of the Vatican, it was great being able to skip the line! The tour guide was awesome, answered all of our questions and we had such a great time during the tour!
Bucket. List. Tour! AMAZING. Wish I had a whole weekend to just stay in this area!
i went with my boyfriend and we had Linda as our tour guide and she was absolutely amazing!! she gave us so much information and then some more!!!!! She was thorough and insightful and we enjoyed it. We would definitely love to have her again for more tours if possible!
This is a fabulous way to see the Vatican Museums, Sistine Chapel and St. Peter's Basilica. Our guide was very knowledgable and enhanced the experience with stories and information.
Our tour guide was a trained archeologist who told meaningful stories to breath incite into this amazing 3 hour tour billed as a half day tour. As with any group tour you can only cover the highlights of this enormous place and as it finished outside the Vatican museum it was unfortunate that we could not re-enter to cover it in more detail. The tour finished in the Bascilica so were were able to continue our exploration there.

This tour was awesome! We started with walking through the Vatican Museum. My only negative note is that the tour only goes through part of the museum and afterwards you can't go back to explore more without buying another ticket. Our tour guide gave us the option of staying, but that would have meant missing the rest of the tour. After seeing the amazing works of art in the museum, we went to look at Michelangelo's ceiling in the Sistine Chapel. We were there about 15 minutes which was nice as it gave time to really soak it in. The tour finished in St. Peter's Basilica. After the guided tour ends, you can remain in the basilica as long as you want and continue to explore.
Overall, I recommend this tour.
This is my second time visiting the Vatican Museums but my first time joining this Skip the Line tour. Joining this Skip the Line or not is really subject to 2 factors: 1 the time of the year you go and 2 you need someone to explain the artwork.
First time I went it was summer time and I pre-booked the ticket directly from Vatican Museum website so I didn't have to wait in line to enter the museum. I did see a very long line outside of the museum. This time I went on Dec 22 at 9am and there was no line outside of the museum at all.
Since I pre-booked my own ticket the first time I went no one guided me through the museum and no one explained to me what the artworks mean. I didn't know what to look for especially when I was looking at the ceiling and wall paintings at the Sistine Chapel. This time I booked this tour and we had a guide walked and talked you through a lot of things in the museum and the paintings in the Sistine Chapel, the experience is very different and I felt educated.
If you plan to visit the inside of St. Peter's Basilica and if you want to Skip the Line you will have to join one of these Skip the Line tours since there are 2 exits from the Sistine Chapel. Sistine Chapel is the last stop of the Vatican Museum , once you are done seeing the Sistine Chapel you need to exit and there are 2 exits. Independent visitors exit through one door and visitors on the group tours exit through another door which takes you to St. Peter's Basilica directly without going through any lines security line.
Again, depending on when you go there. The lines to get into St. Peter's was super long during summer time but it was fairly short during winter Dec 22 was the day I went.
I would recommend this tour.
This is an once in Lifetime treat especially at Christmas. Long lasting memories
Great tour to avoid the long lines ! The tour guide was friendly and knowledgeable and we saved a lot of time by skipping the line. We would recommend this tour.
The tour was incredibly well done! The guides are very informative and the entire experience was amazing- definitely a must see in Rome!
This tour is amazing. The tour guide, Anna, she is very good. She knows the Vatican well, she explained everything so passionately.
Fantastic. Worth every penny. Very informative and interesting guide.
Viator has never let me down.
Our tour guide was so knowledgeable, we learned so much and enjoyed the tour immensely!
We did an early tour which i totally recommend. We had no problem finding our tour guide, she was so informative, the Vatican museums are so vast she just selected the most important things. You had the option to return to the museums later if so wished. My star was St Peters Basilica words cannot describe its beauty. It was a once in a lifetime experience!! It was quite busy but well worth it.
Excellent tour. Well worth taking this if you want to see your way around Vatican with a knowledgeable guide
Overall great experience and tour. Tour guide was very informative. Really enjoyed the whole tour!
Excellent tour and well managed. Do not miss this when in Vatican, it's a beautiful experience.
