    The guide was interesting, caring and informative on the site. Wonderful tour, highly recommend this tour company

  • Silvia Thorpe

    We enjoyed our Vatican tour very much. Again, our guide Julianno was very nice and knew what he was talking about. We learned facts we didn't know and he clearly knew his information. It makes a difference when the guide is qualified.
