Remarkable Tour with Two Fabulous Guides!
, Mar 2019
As four travel companions we had 2 very knowledgeable guides for an early morning Vatican tour that included a special area not open to general public. The tour was expensive but we felt it was worth the money, the early entrance time and easy access to the areas plus the ease of navigating such a large place.
