A Recent Review of this tour

There is a reason why Dino is so highly rated. He is the best. We did his Vatican Tour and I can't imagine that any living being could do a better job. He was not only accommodating and personable, but his knowledge of the Vatican is off the charts. Laura and I thank you again Dino.
