Tour was very crowded, and it was difficult to stay together as a group. We had expected that the crowds would be less, since it was not yet "peak" season. Claudia was very knowledgeable and provided us with a good experience.
Eleanor did a fine job of imparting a lot of information without making it too pedantic. She used humor to keep it light and fun. She is obviously a skilled guide who enjoys her work. Maybe one of the most impressive things she did was to keep a fantastic eye on her group! No one got separated and she skillfully and tactfully kept other groups from usurping our space. Excellent tour!
Eleanor was a force! She got us around the Vatican like it was her own house. Her pride and knowledge of the various rooms was awesome. Taking a tour with a pro makes all the difference.
Our guide was fantastic. She was friendly, polite and very knowledgable. She English was very good. She kept us all together and moving forward in what was a very challenging environment. She was patient and answered all questions clearly and gave a good sense of the surrounding history.
Our guide Elena was terrific. Knowledgable, friendly, and really personally helpful. We loved her.
