A Recent Review of this tour

Great tour with a great host!! First, my family and I want to thank Mauro for this thoughtfulness and caring during this trip. Second, my family and I want to thank Mauro for being a first rate tour guide. He helped us a find a wheel chair to purchase since my mother in law was having more trouble walking at the start of our 2 week European tour. He help find where to go, what to buy while we were in the Vatican. On top of this, he was a great tour guide with knowledge that didn't disappoint.
