It was a wonderful tour and our guide was amazing

The Vatican was breath taking but when you add our guide it made it a once in a life time experience.

Super exciting journey through religious and art history. On the trip, we were a small group of four + our guide Thomas, who was a very interesting narrator. Would definitely recommend this tour to those interested in art (or those who just love dramatic narratives)
