Rome Angels and Demons Half-Day Tour

Rome, Italy

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review
This is a great tour, not only because it brings the book to life and highlights the poetic license of Dan Brown's but it literally travels acorss Rome taking in some of the major sights. I had made a point of re-reading the book just before our holiday but there's no need. Our guide Massimo, retold the story throughout the morning at each sight but to this he added the facts and history. Massimo was a larger than life character who obviously enjoyed he job and wanted us to enjoys the tour. The tour is split into two halves really, with the first couple of hours on coach then the second half on foot, with a fair trek up to the top of Castel Sant Angelo. Really enjoyable, would definetly recommend.

My Review
Being able to jump the massive queues is reason alone to book this trip. The Vatican museums are vast and had we visited independently I'm quite sure we wouldn't have had a clue. Our guide Sarah was great, a native Roman who made the four hours speed by. She struck the right balance in terms of the level of information given, the history mixed with humour and tales. Listening in to some of the other guides as we toured the vatican it soon became apparent that your guide could either make your trip or ruin it - some were really bad, droning on & on. Sarah definetly made our trip to the Vatican more enjoyable. Well worth the money
