As a Catholic, there is no more powerful experience that to be at the Vatican. Then to take the Jubilee tour, and walk through the 4 Holy doors and have your sins forgiven, well that was worth the entire trip all by itself. We had a wonderful guide who was knowledgeable, respectful, and professional.
You definitely want to skip the line. It's a mad house. Well worth the money.
Excellent...but we were worn out! So much to see and learn about. I think there were extra tourists/pilgrims as we are at the end of a Catholic Jubilee year. Much more crowded than I expected we went mid/late October. I would recommend a little reading/research ahead of time - wish we'd done so. Viator partnered with City Wonders formerly Dark Rome - every single tour guide we had was amazing and knowledgeable.
We really enjoyed this tour! Both the tour guides morning and afternoon were very knowledgeable.
It was nice to see the Vatican Museum, cistine chapel and the 3 other Basillicas in Rome
Such an amazing tour. Would highly recommend to anyone wanting to see the Vatican in one day!
Doriana was fantastic on the Vatican Museum / Sistine Chapel / St. Peter's in the morning. She was very knowledgeable, friendly and humorous. Time flew.
However, the 3 basilicas tour in the afternoon was a bust. You are better off going to those on your own. The guides different crew fro, the morning were minimally informed and the bus slowly crept through Roman traffic. The metro is much quicker.
The tour guide Doriana was AWESOME!! She had so much knowledge, was easy to understand and exceptionally informative. My 73 year old mother understood every word, and loved her as well. The Vatican is huge and there is so much to see, she made it informative and didn't loose anyone in our group. The afternoon guide was just as good and was entertaining and very easy to understand. He highlighted all of the sights from the Vatican to each stop. He was very informative and knowledgable of all of the Basillicas after the Vatican. I would highly suggest seeing the sights with a guide, as there is so much to learn, and without them it old have been way less interesting.
