Very well organised and informative trip. If we had done this trip on our own, we wouldn't have learned a thing. Also, skipping the long queue was great in the summer heat.. Our guide Philip was full of interesting and amusing information which even held the attention of my two teenagers. Very, very hot the day we went so we were grateful for the talks being in the shade. The Sistine Chapel was rather amusing in that the guards there had to keep everyone quiet but they made more noise than the visitors with their very loud 'shushing' all the time! The tour didn't include St Peter's Square but the tour finished early enough for those who wanted to to stay behind to do this, and then catch the public bus back. Quite expensive but we thought worth it for the knowledge gained.
