This was by far the best tour we and #39;ve had and we and #39;ve been on three! Debra was our tour guide and she was amazing!!! She was great with the kids and accommodating to some elders with walking difficulty. Debra gave us interesting facts that I hadn and #39;t heard from the previous two tours. She was outstnading!
My husband and I loved our tour in the Vatican! Our tour guide was funny and very knowledgeable; she did a great job taking the time to explain big and little things. I feel like if I went on this visit without a tour guide, I would not totally understand everything.
Add this to your bucket list!! We had an amazing day touring the Sistine Chapel, St. Peter and #39;s Basilica and the museums. I would highly recommend. Our tour guide Linda was fantastic and really made the guided tour informative and definitely worthwhile. The tour was worth every Euro spent!!
This was a jaw dropping tour! Was just amazed with everything and our tour guide Theresa was very knowledgeable.
Deborah was the best guide I could have asked for. Her passion for the Vatican was infectious. She was extremely knowledgeable and approachable.
Deborah was fantastic. She was full of insightful information and made the tour fun as well as informative. The Vatican is packed full of people but she sure knew how to push her way through the crowds so we had a chance to see everything.
My wife and I took this tour a few weeks ago. Going with this group meant bypassing a massive queue at the entrance which was a huge plus. The Vatican is incredibly crowded so there was still a bit of a crush getting through security but we moved quite quickly and our guide, Deny Martinez hope I got the spelling correct took us to a quieter area where she spent some time explaining the history and some of the idiosyncrasies of Michaelangelo's major works that we were about to see. She managed, in a short time, to bring these works to life and to reveal details that would otherwise be missed by an uninformed observer. I found her commentary compelling and she obviously has a great enthusiasm for these works. A highlight for me was the room of maps which is just breathtaking to behold! From there we moved on to the Sistine Chapel where, you can only spend about five minutes or so due to the huge amount of people moving through but they were five spectacular minutes! The tour finished in St Peters Basillica which was less crowded and Deny spent time explaining the history and details of a number of the major renaissance and baroque artworks, once again, enlightening us to things that we would certainly have otherwise missed.
This tour was a great way to see and learn about the artworks of the Vatican. It is very crowded but well worth it and our ever attentive guide, Deny, made it all come to life!
Amazing. Not enough time to take in all the beauty of the Sistine Chapel and was rushed out.
Well organised and enjoyable tour. Skipped the lines which was great. Tour guide was lovely and obviously enjoyed the tour herself.
Chiara from the tour company was very friendly, knowledgable and made the tour of the Vatican museum and Sistine Chapel extremely interesting . She was great at name recall and made us feel really special. Loved skipping the lines, it made the tour so much more enjoyable:
Very informative but not overwhelmingly long tour of the Vatican! The meeting point is easy to find and the tour guide was very well-informed and personable
Our guide was great. I don't have another word to describe her. Everything was planned perfectly. She engaged everyone. Tell the stories between walls.
I have recommended this tour to a work colleague. We were very impressed by the knowledge of the guide, the location of the office and the friendliness of everyone involved. Thank you for making this the highlight of our trip.
We had a great tour and learned so much in such a short time. The half-day tour was perfect for us. Elizabeth was our tour guide and she was very knowledgeable. We highly recommend this tour.
This is the only way to tour the Vatican it's utter chaos otherwise. Our guide Ilaria was wonderful and most informative-you could tell that she loves the Sistine Chapel. We were not able to see St Peter's Basilica that day because the pope was scheduled to speak but we felt that we still had a full tour.Highly recommend.
The tour guide came. She is a charming lady who speaks fluent Italian accent English. She told stories that make you notice details of the subjects and enjoy them more. This tour deserves the highest rating in all ways.
Great guide. The Vatican was awe inspiring. Loved it. I hope the Colosseum is just as good.
We met our guide at the tour offices and walked to the Vatican where we indeed skipped the line, which by the way was all the way down the hill. This tour was worth every penny and then some. Three hours of beautiful art, statues, plus info and history. Definitely do this tour.
Great tour - our guide Ingar knew her history and was very informative x
Well organized tour. The tour guide really knows her trade. Very courteous and patient.
Rosa was a wonderful, knowledgeable tour guide who taught us much about Michelangelo and the history of the Vatican. Her expertise was much appreciated!
excellent, the tour guide are really good. I can recommend Viator to my friends. And I can make tour bookings with Viator in our next trips.
We started early in the morning and wasted no time in lines waiting. Our guide is terrific and filled our whole time with stories and explanations.
This tour was amazing! It was long enough to see all the things we wanted to see. Our group was very small, only 13, so our tour guide was able to to make it a more personable experience. He was very knowledgeable about the history of Rome, as well as the Vatican. We would highly recommend this tour
Great tour. Only issue was I wasn't aware that the price of the ticket was not included, be prepared to pay another 22 dollars when you arrive.
Our guide was very informative and had a wonderful sense of humour, loved it!!!
The guide was informative and allowed ample time to view everything, including the Sistine Chapel. The tour also moved at a good pace meaning you can take a few pictures without losing the group completely. The lines were very long and slow moving so it was a very good way to see everything inside!

Elly May was a great tour guide in which showed us all the sites
So glad we had a tour guide through the labyrinth that is the Vatican. She was very knowledgeable and wanted to accommodate all our desires of what we wanted to see. There were only 6 in our group, so it was very intimate. I and #39;d highly recommend this tour!
I have been to Rome on 3 separate occasions and never have decided to go inside until now. Please do not hesitate to book this tour. It was fabulous! My guide was great and funny and made it easy to understand with pictures of the inside chapel so we could see the details. I totally recommend getting the skip the line tour since thousands of people come here every day! I will be back to do the tour again when I go back to Rome. I would love to climb the dome...
Our recent tour of the Vatican - St. Peter's Basilica, The Vatican Museum, and The Sistine Chapel was fantastic. Our guide was knowledgable and helpful. I would highly recommend this tour.
We thoroughly enjoyed our tour owing in great part to our knowledgeable and friendly tour guide Alfredo. He offered a wealth of knowledge and historical perspective throughout our 3 hour tour. When we saw the lines waiting to enter the Vatican, we knew we made the right decision to book with Viator. We skipped the lines and got a head start on our tour.
Very enjoyable and informative. Our guide was so enthusiastic it was infectious. Many thanks and highly recommended.
Our tour guide, Alfredo, was both knowledgeable and friendly. Excellent tour...Unbelievably breathtaking!
Great tour with the best guide. Very knowledgable and enjoyable
Our tour guide Linda was unbelievably good. She was so informed, easy to listen to and made the experience one of the highlights of Rome.
A unique and wonderful experience visiting St Peter's Basilica and the Vatican Museum.
Excellent tour guides
Marta, our guide, was fabulous. It was obvious that she not only knew the information very well but she also seemed to have a passion for the art. When we needed extra assistance toward the end of the tour she was very gracious and made sure that all was well before we left. Plus, the opportunity to SKIP the lines is not to be underestimated. That is a big deal!
This tour was overwhelming, due to the mass of artwork and architecture, as well as the crowds of people, and I am told it was not as busy at this time of year! Really do wear comfortable shoes and make sure you have eaten well, and bring water!
A must if you intend to see these places. Apart from skipping an hour or more wait to get in the leader was extremely informative and added hugely to the whole experience
Although we went at a REALLY busy time of year week of Easter the tour guide did a good job of showing us highlights and trying to get us moved through the museum without feeling rushed even though we had to skip several rooms. The Sistine Chapel was amazing as was St Peter's Basilica.
Skip the line was excellent. guide was knowledgable and took us where we needs to go. I think without a guide we would have just wandered, got lost and missed bits. we had audio headsets so we learned a bit. All sites were great to see and tick off the list. Did not see the Pope he must have been doing the cleaning.
The guide was exceptional. Very knowledgeable and professional. We were able to pass the hundreds of people in line and go straight in. Highly recommend.
Our tour guide was knowledgeable and provided a lot of great information. It was also nice that he genuinely cared about the state of the museum and Vatican grounds and would make sure people were following the rules not touching. He also gave us a great recommendation for wear to eat after we left the tour.
