The Vatican is vast, crowded and daunting. I can’t imagine seeing it for the first time without a knowledgeable guide. Our guide Lara was excellent. She was knowledgeable, entertaining, funny, and she steered us through the crowds. She used two sets of radios, one for the first part of the tour through the museums and a second one for St. Peter’s Basilica. A great experience, unlike our tour of the Colosseum and Palatine Hill by another operator, in which our guide for the Palatine never appeared.

The guide Sylvia was fantastic and very knowledgeable. Of course the art and history was beautiful and is a must-see while in Italy. The only downside was that we felt rushed through the museum because it was so crowded they had to keep people moving through. I would book with this company again though.

Interstate tour with a very knowledgeable guide David. Meeting place was a little awkward with lots of people standing on the street. Avoiding the queue was very good but it was all too busy and cramped and difficult for our guide to keep the team together. He did a very Stirling job. Not as enjoyable as the Colisseum because of the number of people.
