Not sure we made it to the Raphael rooms? Jeanette was great though! She was very knowledgeable and the time flew by.

The tour and the guide were amazing! I would really recommend getting this tour as they give you a lot of explanations and insights on the exhibitions and is very entertaining.

The guide was very knowledgeable. The group was not too big. We were able to see a lot. The scarf on the pole was an intrusion for photographing frequently. The headsets from the museum were horrible poor quality junk!

, Oct 2018

Our guide was terrible. The headsets were not good and he would be too far away from us to hear what he was saying, too much static. He would leave us behind and move to the next room. It was hard to keep up. We turned in our headsets after a 1/2 hour and did out own. There was no skip the line, we waited outside for 20 minutes to get inside. This was a waste of money.

, Oct 2018

We were able to visit with no queuing and a small group tour. Our guide was very knowledgeable and was able to tell us all the facts about each part of the tour. As it was a small group we were able to get detailed information and plenty of chances to ask questions. Our guide was able to tell us the rules about where we could take pictures with and without flash, and where we had to be silent. Other visitors who were not there were not sticking with these rules and it was quite disappointing.

, Oct 2018

It was a good trip, the guide was able to show and share the details which was quite knowledgeable. Th e tour covered all the main points and was quite good.

, Oct 2018

This was an outstanding tour that exceeded all of our expectations. The tour guide was extremely knowledgeable, enthusiastic, and easy to understand. This was not easy since the Vatican Museums were extremely crowded. Our guide navigated through the museum with great care making sure our group stayed together and had ample time to view the museums' vast collection and take pictures. I would whole-heartedly recommend this tour to anyone.

, Jul 2018

We were not only impressed with our guide but how well she knew about everything on the tour. I would highly recommend Viator with this tour!

, Jul 2018

We learned a lot and it was an amazing experience, but felt the tour was unnecessarily long.

This is a great tour at a great place. The tour went exactly as advertised: Vatican Museum, Sistine Chapel, and St. Peters. Our guide, Inger, is exceptional. She is friendly, knowledgeable, and attentive to her guests. Her familiarity with the history and details of the Vatican added greatly to our visit. That is tough to do because the place is stunning in its own right.

Although we had a number of great tours in Italy, this one ranks at the top. Highly recommended.
