History enriches the visuals
, Jul 2022
Claudia was outstanding in sharing truthful knowledge of the history (the good and the bad). Everything is better understood through expertise.
Well organised, professional service
, Jun 2022
The tour this afternoon was great, thank you! And the company’s organisation and customer service was also good. Thank you for providing a reliable and easy service. Something catering for children (and within budget!), like an info booklet or a ‘look and find’ type activity sheet, would have enhanced ours kids’ experience. But the guide’s good humour and patience kept them going!
Diego is great!
, Oct 2021
Diego was a wonderful tour guide. Very knowledgeable, excited, passionate, kind, and accommodating of all his guests.
Best of the best Vatican tour with Renate
, Jun 2019
Renate was knowledgeable, warm, organized & handled the various group participants from age 6 to 70 plus with great care. She anticipated the group’s individual & collective needs. Her educational background combined with her sense of humor are the recipe for success. She took her time, while being aware of the varied backgrounds & attention spans of everyone. Thanks for a great experience!
