Skip the Line Vatican Tour and Self Guided Tour
curlykramer
, Oct 2019
Guide (Angelica)was great. However, it was hard to appreciate anything at the Vatican Museums. The masses were overwhelming. We were herded through like cattle. Took us over an hour to get headphones. The guide did a great job keeping us together and sharing very interesting information. We attended the Colosseum self guided part at the indicated time. Make sure you don't have to use the facilities there. Beyond unsanitary conditions. Palatine Hill was fascinating and thankfully quiet. If this is a Skip The Line, we can't imagine what a regular line looks like.

Hi curlykra, We don't have any control over the volume of visitors inside the Vatican Museums, but we are experts at navigating our small groups through the crowds :) We don't have any control over the rest rooms inside the Colosseum either. If you wish to complain about them, please write to the venue directly. Thank you! When In Rome Tours

Vatican Museum Historical and Education Tour

Sandra our tour guide was excellent in providing us clear instructions from the very start of our tour inside the Vatican Museum and the Vatican. She was very understanding with the group, has managed well the time spent in every importance sections of the museum. She was very knowledgeable of the important historical facts of important figures that has great influenced on the Catholic Faith, Art, Politics, the Papacy and the construction of the Vatican itself. We skipped the Colosseum tour but I would go again if we have the chance and I would recommend this tour to our friends. Timing for the visit though is really crucial. This is a very busy season for tourists to visit and the traffic inside the museum and the Vatican itself affected the flow of our tour. It was so busy with so many people. We would picked another time to come if the opportunity arises once again. But overall, it was great! Grazie!

Long day

The tour of the Vatican was very long as you must proceed through each museum before you reach the Sistine Chapel. The museums were lengthy and our tour guide provided information on just about each statue. We had hoped for more time in the Sistine Chapel and Basilica.

Tour of two halves
Mark J

The first part of our two attraction tour - The Vatican was well done. Professional with clear instructions. Special mention goes to our Vatican guide who I Can only refer to as Mama - her chosen title on the day. She was excellent- enthusiastic and informative- a real star! The tour of the Colosseum was an absolute joke and was the polar opposite of the Vatican. We were instructed to meet at a pre arranged point near the Colosseum at a specific time - 4pm- where we were to have been met by a representative of the company We arrived at the appointed time and place to find no obvious signs of anyone from the tour company. 15 minutes after the appointed time it became apparent that a person waving a Colombian flag was representing the company - even though the flag waver gave no indication of the fact. Once it became apparent he was there acting for when in Rome- we were instructed to wait- no explanation given. There followed a period of about 40 minutes as our group stood watching the Colombian flag wave horse-trading with two individuals who were quite clearly NOT from any official company. At the end of extensive wheeling and dealing between the three we were joined by another group of people who had been introduced to the Colombian by the shady looking pair. Approximately 45 minutes after the agreed time and place and having stood in the hot sun we were frog marched across to the entrance. Simply not good enough - given the company's reputation. The second part of this operation really spoiled our visit tonthe Colosseum. We will not be using the company again and suggest they get their staff and provide a professional service throughout

Vatican excellent, Colosseum ticket not as promised

Vatican tour was excellent - huge crowds so having a guide was worth it. Colosseum ticket part of package was unclear - given the impression that skip the line ticket was valid anytime - was told that morning it was not valid until 3:30. After meeting group, there were several delays (not sure if our “guide” was confused or what) and we did not enter the colosseum until 4:20. I had a train to catch at 6 so was only able to spend 10 minutes in the Colosseum. This needs to be made clear when package is purchased as people may be planning their day around choosing their own entrance time.

Dear client, Thank you for taking the time to review this tour. It would be extremely helpful to us if you could send us a direct message and include the wording on your tour voucher that left you to believe that this was somehow an open Colosseum ticket....unfortunately every single entry to the Colosseum is now a timed entry, and there is no "wiggle room" here. I would very much like to know what you found confusing, so that we can improve the information we provide for this product across the various sales channels. Thanks in advance!

The Vatican

The Vatican Tour was fantastic. We were in a group of 6 for the private tour. We met at the office which was right by the Vatican. Here we met our tour guide, Paola. She was unbelievable. She knew her facts on the Vatican and answered any or all questions.The tour lasted about 3 hours. Again, I would like to give my thanks to Paola as she was very professional and informative. I would recommend this tour to anyone and if possible request Paola as your guide. I can't say enough about Paola. She is an A number tour guide. Thank you Paola for making this tour great.

Wasn’t necessary

The tour of the Vatican was good although it was difficult to understand our guide all the time. The skip the line and cost for the Colosseum was was a rip off. Discovered that 2 of my children could have gotten in for free and tickets for the other 3 of us was only $18 at the Colosseum! And there were no long lines when we arrived at 8:30 am. So for us...waste of money.

Good over all

I guess I missed something in the description becauseI thought this was a guided tour of both the Vatican and Colosseum. The Vatican was guided by a very knowledgeable young American expat. She was great at answering questions. My only fault here is that there was a very rushed feeling.As to the Colosseum, I had to find my own transport and find something to do for almost three hours before I could enter. Then I had to purchase the audio tour ( which was very good ).Over all this was a great day, just could have been better without the wait in between and the fact that I did not realize the Colosseum was self guided.

Tour Guides are a must to provide insight into these attractions
Daydream766524

Both these attractions are Rome highlights. Our Vatican tour guide was excellent, knowledgeable, and enthusiastic. Skip the lines is also a must since many, many people see these attractions every day. My only criticism is the Colosseum tour is self guided. We upgraded at the Colosseum and we were glad we did. Viator needs to have a tour guide added to its Colosseum ticket.
