Me and my 11 years old son had made the tour in October-2020 with Maria is a wonderful guide and highly recommended. She is so handsome and has made the 3 hour tour so exciting and interesting for us. She knows a lot of the history and has a brilliant way to bring all her knowledge easy and also spiced with a lot of fun and jokes to us. She developed a game especially for kids with mAny interesting facts about historical facts and personalities-that was so smart. Thank you very much for this great afternoon!

Thank you Simona for taking us on an unforgettable tour around the Vatican Museum. The guide was knowledgeable and very kids friendly. The game she provide made the kids engage much more than a regular tour, they have learn the most important things and wanted to see much more. Thank you for the wonderful experience, and thank you all the Viator stuff for all your hard work.

Vatican tour with kids

There were clear instructions about where we should meet our tour guide, Martina. We knew as soon as we met Martina we would have a great tour with her. She was really friendly and great with the kids (aged 9 - 15) focusing in on them straightaway. Martina was really knowledgeable and flexible to our needs. For example, after a couple of hours walking, we were all quite tired, Martina found a quiet place for us all to sit (away from the crowds) to tell us about the Sistine Chapel. The tour was meant to be three hours, but Martina happily stayed for another 45 mins or so while we took in the Basilica. Excellent tour, thank you. Thoroughly recommend.

Very interesting, Simona was able to keep our (very active) 7 year old entertained for 3 hours with a treasure hunt while teaching him (and us) a lot!

While in Rome and Florence I used Viator fir several tours. This was one of them and they have all been excellent. My children are ages 15, 12, 10. Colosseum tour with Alessandra was great!The pizza/gelato tour with Marco is exceptional. He’s amazing! Food tour with Matteo was unbelievable and Sistine Chaoel tour with Simone was also great!!So far while in Florence we have had. Cooking class that was great! And 3 hour tour this morning at davinci museum and David. Her name was Rose and she was exceptional!!Viator has been providing us with great experiences and we are so happy we took a chance with them. Heading to Venice and Paris next week. I’ll update my review after tours we have planned there.

This was one of the best tours I’ve been too. Even though it was marketed as a kid’s tour, the information provided had relevance and substance. The kids as well as the adults enjoyed the tour and learned a lot from it.

We though this would be a great tour to involve the whole family there were 6 of us including my 10 year old nephew and 15 year old niece. We meet Maria our tour guide outside the Vatican museum. There was one other family. We were not disappointed. Maria was fantastic, so engaging and very informative. She got us all involved and the children thought she was great. They loved playing the game and got so much out of it. They were talking about it for days afterwards. Skip the line tours are a must if you have limited time and if you have children I highly recommend this tour. Thank you so much Maria.

Our guide was very nice, but the tour was a little all over the place. We needed more background for the kids (we are not catholic) for them to understand the history of the Vatican and the pope.
