A Recent Review of this tour

Incredible tour of the Vatican museum for our family of two adults and two children (ages 11 and 13). Marisa made it interesting for all of us. She tailored our visit to the parts of the museums that maximized our time and avoided crowds. Her knowledge of the museums and art was obvious and she was great at sharing it in a way that made it so you felt you could ask questions.I would highly recommend her as a tour guide for anything in Rome. She was amazing!!
