I'm not sure how most people will choose a tour. As an independent traveler, I trust the recommendations from all of my Trip Advisor peers...and once again, we got it right with Roman Empire Tours.
Even in spite of the local Metro transit travel strike, all of us made it to the meeting place where we were met by Jimmy and his associate Julia who would be leading the tour. You can tell how passionate Jimmy is about his business by making sure everyone who had signed up for the tour was there and how we were all going to be taken care of. This is one of the wonderful things about finding independent tour groups.
Julia lead a remarkable tour. She was incredibly knowledgeable about all aspects of the history of the Vatican, the artists, the Roman history and most intriguing, the conflict between Michelangelo and Raphael. Julia's ability to teach us about many of the small nuisances and details involving the paintings, the building were excellent. Her interpretation was enough for me to find a book for further reading on it.
I know you will have many excellent choices when deciding which tour company to use...should you use Roman Empire, you will not be dissappointed!
