Our lovely and very knowledgable guide, Frederica, gave a wonderfully thorough and extremely interesting tour to our group. Her enthusiasm was infectious. I had been on a quicker tour of the Vatican about 7 years ago and much preferred Frederica's version, learning so much! My husband and I laughed along the way - her stories including many enjoyable inside scoops. I felt especially priveleged to gain insight into Raphael's Rooms and to learn much about Michangelo, his artistic genius and his relationship with the Pope as a sculptor and as painter of much of the Sistine Chapel. Thank you, Frederica! Wishing you the best! Laurie and Nick from the Chicago area

La visite du Vatican s'effectue en piétinant sans cesse en essayant d'éviter les autres groupes et marchant tous tels des troupeaux de moutons au coude à coude ! Horrible !! Aucun plaisir dans ces conditions !

Excellente organisation, accueil au rendez-vous facile et accueil très professionnel. Les écouteurs nous permettent d’entendre la guide même si on est éloigné ou si il y a beaucoup de bruit. Excellente visite, la guide nous donne des informations très interessante mais ne nous noie pas avec des tonnes d’explications. Visite fluide, très agréable. Pas de stress malgré la foule.
