    We had a great guided tour with Cristina in the Vatican Museum! Cristina explained everything very vividly and with lots of stories and the sensitivity not to go into too much detail, and presented it in a very understandable way for us. We got to know her as a competent, funny and entertaining guide. Thank you!

    Kiara Donatello was our guide and she was great, full of knowledge and full of enthusiasm On the other hand, we had an unpleasant and irritating experience because we accidentally came an hour late to the tour. The receptionist didn’t help us and we felt very frustrated. In summary- a great guidance and a bad costumer service

    Good experience!

    They company said they did not have our reservation but it was okay they would accommodate us any way. We waited an additional 30 minutes before we were off to see the Vatican Museum. Before we walked off the guide informed us that we would not see the Sistine Chapel and they said they told us, and no refund. It was something to do with Pope Frank having something... however we were the last group they let in to see the Sistine chapel that day. The crowds were a little overwhelming at times and the tour guide went father quickly and many of our group could not keep up. She was knowledgeable and funny. I overall enjoyed the tour.
