although our tour was changed from afternoon to early morning, it was very well organized and there were only four of us.
Great and easy way to skip the long line and managed to tour in a very relax way.
Our tour guide was very interesting, had a very good knowledge of the history of the Vatican and the art history of the place .
It is really worth it.

Our tour guide, Elena, was incredible! She covered everything thoroughly, and had lots of interesting information that we would never have known by just walking through ourselves. She was personable, and willing to wait for us if anyone in the tour wanted to take some pictures. We only wish we had booked her for seeing the rest of Rome, instead of doing it on our own.

This tour was fantastic, our tour guide shared so many details of Vatican City and The Sistine Chapel that we would not have been able to find on our own. The meeting spot and smaller group allowed for many one on one questions to be answered as well, highly recommended.

I was absolutely enthralled. We had a very lovely Italian tour guide who was very patient a few of our party left the tour early and softly spoken, which I much preferred. Some other tour guides were shouting and I found this overwhelming. She made lots of eye contact with me and was extremely engaging, at one point I felt like the only person on the tour. It was really well organised and very smooth! Worth every penny and thoroughly recommended.

This tour was confirmed weeks before with the tour company in Italy. The tour guide arrived on time to the meeting point and was very professional through the tour. He spoke fluent English and always communicate with us about the process of the tour pick up the radios, pay the fees, etc. There were 13 people on this tour as arranged and he guided us for almost three hours through the museum, the Sistine Chapel and St Peter's Basilica. He shared with us not only his knowledge but also some of his personal experiences as a guide.

Vatican was amazing, our guide was great, but is there a better time to go, too many people.

Good tour. Very knowledgeable guide. She did a great job of giving us as much time as possible in the Sistine.
Our guide made you feel like it was a private tour. Great job

Το Βατικανό ήταν καταπληκτικό, η ξεναγός μας καλή αλλά μιλούσε γρήγορα , το tour τελείωσε μισή ώρα νωρίτερα πράγμα που μου έκανε άσχημη εντύπωση, είχε πολυ κόσμο και πραγματικά δεν περιμέναμε στίς ουρές , θα συνιστούσα να μην διαλέγετε tour που δεν περιλαμβάνονται εισιτήρια μέσα όπως έκανα εγώ γιατί όταν πλήρωσα επι τοπου το εισιτήριο του Μουσείου μου στοιχισε τελικά πολύ ακριβά.

Booked a small group tour with Viator, who used a local company. Firstly I must say that the artworks in this museum is stunning and requires a lot of time to absorb. About the tour itself: Yes, we were a small group 13 people but there were so many other groups that it was really hard to follow the guide and eventually we lost the group in the crowd. The small radios they give performs really poor and often pick up other tourguides using the same channel. We found that the guided tour did not move at the same pace as we'd like to, and also due to the huge crowds, it is hard to actually appreciate the place and its art. I believe that in our case it was not worth the money spend. The tour was advertised at 43, but I could not find this price anywhere when I booked, and in the end came to nearly double this. Keep in mind that the place is huge and 3 hrs is merely a guideline - I believe a lot more is needed. Unfortunately, again, this seems a very popular attraction and is definitely the most crowded I have ever been to, which can result in getting simply swept along with the crowd, or ushered along by the security staff. Anyone who is really interested in art and history, should investigate alternative ways to conduct their visit.

Bloody awful, we paid to avoid the queues, but spent most of the time doing just that with 60,000 people. Could hardly hear the guide who had lost interest 20 years ago. The Vatican is a monument to bad taste, opulence and power.

Note from Viator: Thank you for your feedback. Our tour operators do take these reviews very seriously. When it comes to the queues, our customers are given an expedited line for groups. Though we do understand that this line can appear to be very full, it is much faster than the standard queue.

We do hope this information helps you, and future travelers in making the best possible decisions for which tour will work for you. Thank you again for your feedback and we wish you Happy Travels.
