I would highly recommend this tour. Our guide Dorianna was very knowledgeable and her enthusiasm infectious. Dorianna's commentary is very insightful. This is an ideal way to soak up the beauty of the Vatican and avoid the long,long queues!
Great organisation and guide GG very knowledgeable and passionate about the history of the Vatican. Would highly recommend this tour.
We really enjoyed the tour with our guide being very friendly and of course knowledgeable! I can really recommend the tour and skipping the queue's are invaluable. Even though we were late the crew accommodated us on the next hour which they didn't have to do. Great experience all round.
This tour was one of my favorites, it really was an unforgettable experience at the Vatican and our tour guide was great and very informational.
very knowledgable guides, easy to find meeting point. well organized. thank you, great experience.
Francesca our tour guide was the best guide we've ever had -she was passionate and lively and engaging, which made the trip far more interesting for my teenage children. We were given enough time to understand and enjoy the Vatican City and could not imagine going through this experience without a guide. Thank you Francesca and Viator for a tour of a lifetime!
The tour guide was very enthusiastic and knowledgeable, I'd recommend the Viator tour and City Wonders to everyone going to Rome.
Very nice tour and tour guide well worth seeing and doing. Beautiful! Perfect amount of time too. Skip the line tour is the way to go, organized, knowledgeable guide and none of the madness!
The tour was great. The company was also very accommodating when we were late to the first tour. Overall recommend doing the tour with this company. The only thing I would say is a bad is that it WAY to much and way to QUICK to see everything, and you definitely do not see everything in Vatican City/Museums.

This was such an amazing experience. We had an amazing tour guide, Francesca, who was very detailed and knew her stuff! She was very patient and took her time explaining everything we saw. Tour ing the Vatican is a must on your visit to Rome regardless of your faith.
Our tour guide, Giulia, was extremely knowledgeable and friendly, able to keep a large group together and help us navigate both the amazing art and the crowds. She gave great, clear information about the history of the Vatican, of the Sistine Chapel and St. Peter's, bringing to life the great Popes who created what we see today as well as the artists who made masterpieces. I had no idea that the Sistine Chapel was Michelangelo's first painting job! Or that he didn't use blue because he had to pay for all the paint and supplies, and couldn't afford lapis lazuli. Just one of the fun facts that made our tour memorable.
I can unfortunately not remember the name of our tour guide, but she was incredible. She was knowledgeable and did a great job of focusing our tour on the highest-yield artworks of the tour. She was passionate about the topic and this was evident in how she constructed the tour. The small group upgrade made it easier to maneuver and to appreciate the countless artworks on this tour.
This tour to the Vatican was outstanding, the guide Igor, was a walking encyclopaedia and was very knowledgeable he made the tour interesting from start to finish.
Fantastic tour! Our tour guide Franco was excellent. The Vatican and the Sistine Chapel are so amazing. Just be prepared for the heat and crowds in August, but totally worth it.
The guide was very knowledgeable and had a great sense of humor. A lot of walking but worth it. Mark, Milford, Ct
Excellent tour. Our guide was amazing and informative. It was very crowded, but our guide made sure we were altogether and would bring us into places where she could talk to us without the crowd around. This is the only way to do this place--otherwise you're just looking at a lot of beautiful things without knowing the history. Also having the skip the line meant we just walked right in...beautiful!
Salvatori was the most fabulous and informative guide. He was incredibly knowledgeable and could answer all our questions. He looked after everyone on the tour group really well and my whole family really enjoyed the tour. The tour was very well organised. The only way to see St. Peter and #39;s and Sistine Chapel.

Very nice tour and our guide Lindy was very knowledgeable and a great guide! There is so much to see it's incredible! The only big bummer is you cannot take pictures inside the Sistene Chapel
Excellent guide, deep in knowledge, and always ready to answer questions which she always knew the answer for!
I was amused by this tour. Spent the best of times.
Thank you so much.
Our guide Camilla was terrific once again. The lines were huge and we got to the front no problem. She gave us just the right amount of information. I would highly recommend that you take this tour when you go to Rome it makes your trip COMPLETE.
Excellent Tour....highly recommend using Viator. Guide was great.
Our tour guide was excellent. The Vatican tours are super crowded, but it was worth it to learn about the history and art.
