This was definitely one of the big highlights to the trip to Rome. We thoroughly enjoyed the tour and the information we received. The only way to fly is on the tour before the Vatican City opens! Thanks, Viator. Well done.
A great experience that I would recommend to anybody visiting Rome. An excellent guide that was very knowledgeable and handled the tour group extremely well through a very busy environment.
Our tour guide was extremely knowledgeable about all aspects of the Vatican museums, the Sistine Chapel and St Peter's Basilica. There were tremendous queues everywhere but she guided us in a very stress free manner through all the halls and chambers. We saw a lot in the time we had available.
Tour was excellent, could not imagine visiting the Vatican any other way. Guide pointed out things we would have never picked up or known about on our own, and getting into the Vatican early saved us a lot of time waiting in line. Best part of our visit to Rome.
This was an amazing tour of the Vatican. Our Guide was extremely knowledgeable very personable and kept us enthralled and entertained the entire time. We entered early as promised and bypassed many of the queues and our tour began promptly which was amazing bearing in mind the amount of people waiting to get in and the number of tours going on. We would definitely use Viator again.
Fantastic tour!!!! The museums are crowded, and you need a tour like this to be able to get in quickly. We skipped the long lines with this tour. Our small group had about 10 people, our tour guide was fantastic and very knowledgeable. The museums are a must see, they are beyond description. I highly recommend this tour.
So much to take in. Wonderful tour. St Peter's and the Sistine Chapel are just breathtaking. Loved our guide as well.

We easily found the tour guide at the designated spot actually there were several groups each with their own guide. We were probably around a dozen people in our group and our guide led us right past the waiting line into the Vatican museums and we embarked on an amazing tour. The guide was extremely knowledgeable and elaborated on many of the highlights and provided visual aids to point out items to look for in areas where she was not allowed to talk such as the Sistine Chapel. A great tour, well worth the cost.
Definitely take the early morning option before the major crowds arrive. Our guide was knowledgeable, fun, and had excellent English skills. It is worth it to pay for the early access....to cut the line.
Exceptional experience of the amazing Sistine Chapel. The guide we had, Loreli, was very knowledgeable and helpful.
Although it was an early morning tour the crowds were still large but we were able to see what we wanted to see.
Laura was AMAZING! She provided just enough information where we could absorb, enjoy and remember it for years to come! Not overloading us, where the mind sort of just tunes out. Well worth the investment!
Patricia was our small group tour guide. She maneuvered is through the most crowded areas with skill and knowledge. Before we entered the Sistine Chapel, she gave us some history of the chapel, Michaelangelo's work there, and showed us photos so we could understand what we were looking at. I highly recommend this tour.
Our guide Maria was brilliant. Friendly and informative, and ensuring that we were never in a space that was too crowded or busy. Having quick access into the Vatican without queues was a real winner. Highly recommended.
What a feast for the eyes! You could spend a month inside the vatican and never feel like you saw enough...I felt the same about St Peter's and Sistine Chapel. What we saw on this tour was more amazing than I could have ever dreamed. You walk through with your mouth open. The beauty and history leaves your breathless. Take the tour and see what I am talking about. This definitely did not disappoint. I went July 2016
Excellent tour of the Vatican. Tatiana was an excellent guide, very knowledgeable with a great sense of humor. She also gave us her choices for the best homemade pasta and gelato.....Both excellent choices.
Our tour guide, Sarah was amazing! She knew exactly how to make the tour educational and fun without overloading us with too much. I am so glad we booked the early access tour as there were already a lot of people touring and a huge line hours before the Vatican opened to the general public. This is a GREAT tour and excellent value for the price.
Tour guide was very informative and the vatican amazing. Highly recommend early morning tour to avoid the crowds
Early Access tour is the only way too see Vatican! Very knowledgeable tour guide. Wear good and comfortable shoes while in Rome.
The small group Vatican tour was very much worth the cost. I was told by friends not to bother having a tour and just to get tickets on the door however the knowledge you get from the tour guide is worth penny. I paid for myself and my partner for his birthday and he was sceptical on what benefit the tour would be but he also enjoyed the tour and was glad we had it. Highly recommend it.
Seamless entry into the Vatican guide had good knowledge. Just beautiful.
