Perfect excursion.

Perfect excursion. Everything, as it seemed to us. Personal transfer from the hotel. Alessio, who meets us, passed the baton to our guide, Marina Muravyeva. She so easily led us along the planned route that it was imperceptible that there were a lot of people around. Marina somehow very deftly led us so that sometimes there were practically no one around. The accompaniment itself is very capacious information, but at the same time unobtrusive. Marina understood our mood very well, it is always nice to be on the same wavelength with a person. All this, combined with her youth, attractiveness, charm, left a lasting impression of the tour. Thank you for the high level of service!

The private tour in the morning before the official opening times was the highlight of our trip to Rome. Pick up at 7:30 am at the hotel was reliable. Our German-speaking guide Sebastian led us very professionally through the Vatican Museums, the Sistine Chapel and St. Peter's Basilica. With lots of detailed knowledge and anecdotes, Sebastian made the tour a great experience that we will always remember.

It was so exciting and interesting with Frank, he drew us into his world. We also had no problem with the wheelchair. It's just awesome and humorous. There was also a vocal part. We can only say thank you once more.
