We took this tour on the 24th February early morning (8 am) and our guide was Sara N. I highly recommend this to anyone who is visiting Vatican. Our group was only 6 including the guide. I must say Sara was excellent. she was knowledgeable and patient. we skipped all the queues and had ample time to admire everything but we felt like we could have stayed for the whole afternoon. Excellent tour, a must do when you are in Rome.Reviewed by: kasuni2, March 2014
What a great tour I had on the 24th February my tour guide was emanuela she was fantastic at explaining everything in detail I felt that we was never rushed no queues ,
There was only four in our group which was even better.
But beware your on your feet for three plus hours I'm sixty I coped with it but if your in anyway infirm forget it,
To sum up you got to go for this tour why wait in line with tour guides the calibre off emanuela and others from the tour company you will find it so much enjoyable and truly fact finding.
My husband and I took this tour as it had rated highly and we were not disappointed. Our tour guide, David, was excellent, he was so knowledgable about everything he took us around, we felt we really learned an awful lot during the morning tour. To be honest we could have continued for another few hours it was that interesting. Without a doubt the small group tour was excellent, we skipped the lines as we set off early and we weren't lost in a group of 50+ as some of the later tours seemed to be. If we were to return, I would without question book another tour.Reviewed by: Laura S, February 2014

Our guide, David, made this tour what it was. Exceptional. He was knowledgable, entertaining, spoke great English, articulated well and was patient. The Vatican, Sistine Chapel and St. Peter's Basilica were amazing. The entire tour was wonderful. Just fantastic. You would miss so much doing the museum without a guide. He added so much insight and just enough information. Loved this tour!Reviewed by: Peg B, USA, February 2014

It really made us want to come back again and I must say every viator tour we took whilst in Italy was superb!Reviewed by: roey, February 2014
Our tour guide Martha was amazing! She was very passionate with her job and very informative. She explained a lot about the murals and paintings in the Vatican. Martha spoke fluent english as well.
You can tell that Martha studied deeply into the Vatican, the Roman Empire, Latin and the history about the vatican. I've never had a tour guide who was so interesting at Martha. I would highly recommend Martha as the tour guide for this tour! It was such a great experience. My fiancé and I highly enjoyed this tour. It was well worth the money and time.
Super nice. Will definitely recommend it to others.Reviewed by: Phillip T, February 2014
