“Tour was wonderful! Our tour guide was great and very knowledgeable, and she kept things moving at a good pace.

Our guide was fantabulous. I unfortunately don't remember his name but he was an expert art historian and very passionate. Would highly recommend this tour as without our guide we would not have developed this deep insight into the treasures of the Vatican.
