Highly recommend this company's tours as the people conducting them are very knowledgeable, fun and genuinly care for the group. We had Grant and he displayed excellent customer care while enlightening us on the tour and he kept the atmosphere nice and light with his quirky humour. We also met the manager which gave us lots of information even before... More

Very informative, delightful, interesting, entertaining! Love that we got a fastpass and didn't have to stand in line for hours to take the wonderful tour. Daniella was personable and shared very knowledgeable information with us. April 17, 2015. Hope you retrieved all of the audio devices.

We toured the Vatican museum today and had an incredible trip. Our tour guide Grant was fantastic - extremely knowledgeable, very personable, and he found ways to infuse humor into the subject. With ease, he handled a large group in a very busy and crowded tourism location. I would strongly recommend this tour guide group to anyone planning to visit... More

We took the early morning tour and it was amazing but Daniela is by far the best tour guide. We looked at the other tours going through and most of them their eyes looked glazed over, but our group was enthralled!

We had a great tour of the Vatican today. Carlotta was are tour guide and she was interesting and informed. On the early tour, we were able to arrive before the crowds arrived in the Sistine chapel and had plenty of time to enjoy the chapel and soak up the art. I would highly recommend the tour and Carlotta.
