Our tour guide Jo was amazing! Her knowledge of different time periods, historically, politically and socially was very impressive. She was on top of her game! She answered all questions thoroughly and we learnt a lot. Her patience and kindness was a treat.

The tour was great! If you can, recommend going earlier to avoid the crowds as it was pretty busy to make our way through around noon but Janette did a great job navigating us through and finding places we could stop to take in the sites. She was very knowledgeable and added made the tour a personable experience which we appreciated.

Brilliant tour, our guide was very good and made the visit so much interesting than going around on your own. The No-wait was a must as even in January the queues were massive.


5 star rating: Highly Recommended February 2018

This tour was absolutely amazing. Our guide was very knowledgeable and our group was small enough that it was easy to ask questions and get them answered. I would highly recommend taking this tour to maximize your experience.

This was another excellent tour. Chiara was so enthusiastic and very passionate about art and archaeology. This is a hugely recommended tour, not only because it was good, but the museum was very crowded and, you really need someone to guide you. Thank you
