Small group really means small group. It was worth waking up at 6 am on vacation. We had a jam packed schedule, very informative and educational. Our guide was extremely knowledgeable and we loved her flash card booklet. Although we'd stepped into the St Peter's basilica the day before, the information she provided when she took us around was eye opening. It helped us understand many things.

Although it was "skip the line" early tour before the Vatican opened to the general public, it was still more crowded than I anticipated. Generally very good, however I would have liked to have more time in St. Peter's Basilica.

Micheala was wonderful - funny, interesting and full of terrific information.
Many thanks for a great experience!

We are very satisfied with the Viator tour through Vatican. Everything was organised as was written. The best part was our lady-guide just returned after maternity leave but full of joy and especially knowledge about the matter. Rating the tour: excellent

I can't imagine going into the Vatican without a guide. She was very knowledgable and gave us many insights we would not have known if we went on our own.

The tour itself was exactly what we expected. It was a small group of 12, our tour guide was very friendly and knowledgeable (she also works as an archaeologist!) and we didn't have to wait in any lines at all. The tour went at a good pace, and she gave extra info and details about specific artwork and rooms that the group showed interest in. The only disappointing thing about the tour was something they have no control over. The Sistine Chapel has become a joke, they cram hundreds of people in a very small room, and the constant "shushing" of the crowd becomes louder than the quiet chatter that would happen otherwise. It was a beautiful room, but the experience is ruined because of the way it is being handled. There is one tour that lets you see the Chapel privately in a small group but it is very expensive. Long story short, if there is a long line, this is a definite must, and the tour was quite enjoyable!
