Reviews for St Peters Basilica Tour With Dome Climb
DON’T WASTE TOUR TIME OR MONEY ON THIS TOUR. The line to get into St Peter’s Basilica was an hour long, and apparently it always is- and the tour does not skip the line. The line is apparently ALWAYS an hour long, but the tour does not inform you of that. What is supposed to be a 1.5 hour tour becomes a run through the Basillica , a run through the grotto, and then a silly process of going out again to wait in another line to walk up the Basilica dome, and you’re told to go yourself if you’re now short on time rather than wait in another long line for the elevator. Our Viator tour guide was terrible- she gave only the slightest info inside the Basilica, mostly just saying how much she loves Michealangelo and wasn’t everything just amazing. It is FREE to get into the St Peter’s Basilica and yet we paid $50 each to wait in lines we could have waited in ourselves without wasting all the extra time it takes to get there early to meet your guide, wait for 20 other people and then all get into the hour-long security line with every other person waiting to get in. Download the free Rick Steves Basilica guide or just rent a headset when you get in. You will learn much more than the Viator tour guide tells you without the frustration of waiting around for your tour to get started.
Flaky and better to do Dome Climb on your own

They cancelled the tour and notified me 22 minutes before the tour was scheduled to start. I was already there. Very frustrating.
Great tour with the best views of the city!
Loved this tour! We did it with my one-year-old, my wife, and our mother-in-law. I had my baby in the baby Bjorn and this was a game changer. Probably wouldn't recommend taking a little one. Our tour guide was super knowledgable and had been doing this for decades. Had a blast. Incredible views of the city.
St Peters Experience was wonderfu
Excellent experience with our guide. Very informative and much more than we would have experienced in our own. St Peters itself is a beautiful church and a must see experience in Rome.
Great value tour with a very insightful guide!
Brilliant tour, very much recommended. Our guide for the day, Bruce, was a top-class guy, very friendly and knew his stuff. 5 stars.
