das war eine wirklich sehr gute Führung durch unsere durch und durch kompetente und engagierte Führerin Mira, die in den 3 Stunden alles spannend und ausführlich erklärt hat. Danach konnten wir noch die Sixtinische Kapelle und den Petersdom bestaunen, das war ein Highlight in Rom.
The stuff to see and the gudie's knowledge was excellent. However, with 30000 people a day moving through the site it is absolutely no fun. We were a group of 22 and it was hard to follow the guide. Radio contact is also often badly impacted when the guide is alread some meters ahead, mostly in the next room or compartment. I would recommend low season or a smaller/private tour.
Great tour, but next time, I probably would not try to go during Holy Week because it was just ao crowded. If you want the highlights and info on the highlights, this is a good tour for you. If you or someone in your group is an art history buff, don't do a tour because it will move too fast for you.
