We spent 30 minutes in front of a screen before entering the museum while our guide described the Sistine Chapel. (as guides are not allowed to join you there). Then we basically walked through the Museum to the Sistine Chapel while she pointed out items of interest along the way. She did an excellent job of describing Raphael's works- and... More

Booked our visit through Viator website for the 3 hour tour of the Vatican and St Peter's Basilica. Some of the best money spent on our visit to Rome. The tour was excellent and our guide David, was extremely knowledgeable and very funny. He kept the whole group entertained for the full three hours. If you don't have a guide,... More

Before leaving England we had booked an afternoon tour with Viatour. It was well worth it. Our group of 21 was met on time and issued with radio devices so that we could hear our guide clearly at all times. Nina was excellent and her extensive knowledge and enthusiasm made the visit outstanding. We would have floundered completely without a... More

Even as an atheist, this really is something you must see. The vatican is a fantastic historical site to walk around. The religious architecture is amazing. Best view is from the duomo, which you subsequently walk down and enter St Peter's Basilica which is beautiful. It is fairly expensive for a tour but much better to have a guided tour... More

To many people, not enough time to experience everything. My guide really didn't explain much to us. We walked single file line most of the time trying to keep up with our guide. The art work, building, etc. are beautiful... Just to crowed to even take pictures. They expressed that this was not even high season yet.

The Vatican is one of the most beautiful places in Europe and should not be missed. Even if you can't afford a tour at least go to the Basilica as it is awesome

As you approach St Peter's Square you will be accosted by a multitude of people who want to help you to avoid the long queues. For 41 Euros per head we had a guided tour with a very knowledgeable guide for about 2 and a half hours which gave us a taste of the museum, a tour of the gardens,... More

After doing some researches and reading many reviews about Joy of Rome, I decided to book 2 tours with them: Ancient Rome and the day after the Vatican extended tour. The organization was perfect and smoothie. They were both fantastic tour guides and the price was absolutely reasonable. I wish I hadn't booked the City Center and Catacombs tours with... More

We were at the Vatican City on friday the 21 of march. When we arrived at the meeting point, we met an energetic, smiling and friendly person named Luigi. He started shaking everybodys hands, person by person, and we were about 20 persons!, and he asked everyone for their names! He presented how the tour was about to take place,... More
