Our guide was professional, knowledgeable and spoke excellent English!

A bus picked us up at our hotel in a timely manner and drove us to an ItalyXP office where we met our guide. The office was just across the street from the Vatican, so no walking! We had a lovely tour of the Sistene Chapel, Vatican and St. Peter’s Cathedral. Upon completion our guide showed us exactly where to go to get a taxi to go back to our hotel. I was very pleased. Even better than advertised!
