    Mrs Linda Hayes

    The Vatican is a priceless treasure and really needs no guide to appreciate the value and importance . As well as the colesseum is a masterpiece of arciticture by the Romans.

    The tour was great. The guides very knowledgable. The one guide we had talked a bit slower then our liking however that’s our personal preference and for others it was probably fine. The only other piece that was frustrating was at the Colosseum tour was that my radio box kept losing the tour guide so it was choppy and I couldn’t hear at times. I was standing next to my husband who could hear fine. So maybe the company could use an upgrade for the boxes. Otherwise great and worth the money
