Fantastic

Elizabeth was very informative at the colosseum and surrounding areas, she gave us a lot of information at all stages of the tour and looked after the group well. Richardo was very enthusiastic about the Vatican and very knowledgeable, he knew a few secrets about the art that others may not notice, e.g the dog the mascot of the painters. Thoroughly enjoyed our tours. Thank you.
