  • Well done tour. Greatly enjoyed.

  • A very good tour. The guide was knowledgeable. It was very crowded and busy as always, so a small group is necessary to be able to stay near the guide. The drawback is you have to move along because of the crowds, but that's unavoidable. To see St. Peter's and the Sistine Chapel is a must when visiting Rome.

  • My husband was very impressed! Our tour guide was knowledgeable and highly academically accomplished on the subject matter PhD BUT we had been on other tours whereby the use of personal headsets whereby you can hear your Tour Guide when you are not exactly next to them or close to them. That was very much missing!
