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
