Our guide was Lindy - she was great. This tour costs more than some others but the catch with those other tours might be that you have to come up with the money for the museum ticket at the beginning of the tour. And since the museum is the majority of the tour my tour anyway, the tour would be a waste of money without the museum part. Glad it was built in to my package price...I would be leaving a bad review if I had experienced a major hidden cost like that.
No photos or videos in the Sustine Chapel, but that's a rule imposed by the Vatican, not by the tour guide.
The guided tour ends before St Peter's Basilica, but the ticket price includes the basilica so budget an extra 30-45 minutes if you plan to wander around in the basilica, or in St Peter's Square afterwards.
Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and accommodating. I forget her name but she did a great job explaining things and keeping us together! We were able to get in very quickly and had a fantastic time!
Had a great tour! Totally worth it!! Sarah was awesome!! She was very insightful and provided great information as well as tips for souvenirs. Highly recommend!!
Great guide and easy passage through all checkpoints. Lots of great information and answers to our questions!
Great tour guide - Gia! She was so knowledgeable and did a great job giving us just enough information for the time that we had. Liked the size of the group and recommend this tour.
How could this tour be anything but amazing. The beauty was almost overwhelming. Our photos do not do it justice. You can't go to Rome and not visit St. Peter's and the Sistine Chapel. We were there in September. The skip the line is well-worth the cost. Even so, it was still very crowded in St. Peter's.
Great tour, we learnt early on that we were not able to access St. Peter's until later that day as it was a Wednesday and there was a papal adress, so the tour spent much longer going through the Vatican Museums which was fantastic!
The tour guide was excellent, knowledgeable, humorous, obviously personally interested in the history he was explaining.
I am SO glad that friends of mine who had been to Italy suggested signing up for a Skip the Line Tour for the Vatican. It was well worth the money and we got so much more out of it rather than trying to go through on our own. We also liked that it was a smaller group considering how crowded the Vatican was. Our tour guide, Giuseppe, was EXCELLENT!
Never expected to like this so much the guide was amazing with such a great knowledge and appreciation of the art.
We toured the Vatican Museum and St. Peter's Basilica. We had the most amazing guide. He spoke excellent English, was thorough, patient and knowledgeable.
A must see. We got to see the Pope during a vigil on a Saturday night. The Vatican was amazing with so much history.
Our guide, Alessia, was great. She gave a lot of background info and details that you would never know just touring on your own. I highly recommend this tour!
Definitely worth it otherwise would waiting in extremely long lines.
Our guide was amazing. Took his time and was very knowledgeable. He gauged our interest and spent more time where we were most interested. He also worked with those who had limited mobility and spent extra time with us then normally scheduled. Fantastic and a must do.
Patricia, the tour guide was so informative and responsible. The tour was excellent. We have 21 members in the group and it helped Patrica to pay attention on each of us.
Magda was an absolutely fantastic tour guide! She was impeccable in her knowledge and related it in an effortless way to us!
Fascinating and beautiful basilica, Sistine chapel and the rest of the beautiful pieces of art and architecture we saw!
Sara was a wonderful guide, and the museum is pack with priceless treasures of art and culture. I highly recommend visiting the Vatican Museum and this tour was very well run.
Very knowledgeable tour guide. I found it valuable to have a guide this time.
Loved this tour. The tour company assigned was City Wonders and they were great and our guide, Vasco, was superb. Definitely will recommend to friends.
Our guide, Lina ?, from Holland was brilliant. So personable, patient and knowledgeable.
