A Recent Review of this tour

I was so glad we decided to book Marisa as our guide for this tour. Her knowledge and ability to use it to put context in what you are seeing makes a grand visual that is the Vatican museums experience so much more. Simple things like knowing you are walking on ancient roman floors could be overlooked, as well as the historical significance of some of the artwork. Planning wise, Marisa reached a few days to confirm and sent a map so we wouldn't be at the wrong spot. Marisa is awesome
