    Changed meeting location. I was not notified. Tried to meet up with them for 2 hours. No one ever showed. Now waiting on my full refund.

    Die ganze Tour war ein Erlebnis und wir haben viel über die Geschichte in Rom gelernt zu den Themen, die uns angekündigt wurden. Hat echt Spass gemacht und am Besten beschreibt unsere Einschätzung und Erfahrung, dass wir es jederzeit wieder machen würden. Danke!

    Canceled Vatican tour last minute. We kept being told that they are arranging an alternative. In the end we had to find s different operator at a premium (last minute) price. And now very poor response on refund. Have been emailing Antonio multiple times. Very unprofessional.

    My family and I had the most amazing experience when we visited the Vatican City this past July. We booked a tour with Mea Tours Events S. R. I who provided us with a tour guide that went above and beyond to make sure that we had “The ultimate experience” during our visit there. Our tour guide, Serena M. was very nice, patient and professional. She was also really knowledgeable about the history of the sites we visited. Not only did she explained everything to us in details but also had a book to show what the places looked like then and now. She was truly EXCELLENT! Mea Tours also had a driver pick us up in the morning and drop us off in the afternoon. We are so happy we did this tour with them and would like to recommend them to anyone who is interested in visiting the Vatican City.

    I was fortunate enough to have a private tour with Erturk - as I was the only one! Erturk was incredible - genuinely nice guy, great knowledge, made the tour fun, interesting, and casual. I went in March when it wasn't too hot and the crowds weren't too big so we managed to walk at our own pace and look at and discuss the incredible art. I had a great experience and would like to thank Erturk a thousand times for making the trip and the tour so great. Far exceeded my expectations!

    This would have been a wonderful tour and our tour guide Fabio was EXCELLENT however Mea tours allowed our small group of 6-8 to 16 people and even though the tour clearly stated that there would be lots of walking and difficult with those that might have trouble walking on cobblestone they allowed someone with a walker and who couldn’t climb stairs to be on the tour. I am TOTALLY respectful to those of disabilities as I have family members with them I didn’t think it was fair to the rest of the group that had just a day in Rome to not get to see everything that was included in the tour. I believe they should provide a service for disabled to get to see and experience the sights as well without feeling as if the group was being held up.
