This was my third tour of the Vatican, and our tour guide Christina made this trip FAR superior to the rest!! To start, she also works directly for the Vatican in addition to doing the tours so her knowledge of the material and the building were very evident from the start. More importantly, she had the perfect level of enthusiasm and passion that I feel was infectious to the rest of the group. Her spunkiness is also great to have when navigating the throngs of people that you'll encounter!

This was a great tour. The tour guide who was supposed to guide us had car problems, so the tour company called another tour guide, who showed up a few minutes after we were supposed to start. I was impressed that the tour company had another guide who could arrive quickly, since this tour only last two hours. The tour guide, Christina, was EXCELLENT. I cannot say enough good things about her.
