Our guide was amazing – we had a group tour – the group size was very manageable (3 families). Our guide got us through all the queues really quickly (and there would have been a lot of confusing queues without her). My son is 11 – the tour was perfect for him- Toni was pitching it for each of the kids. The tour took about 3 hours. When we got home, my son spoke to his dad (who was away) and he just went on about Michelangelo. I could not have hoped for such result! Thank you so much!
Our guide, Francesca, was a fabulous guide and kept my 9-year-old son and all the kids of the group tour entertained for 3 hours. She made the tour so interesting and showed us things like the pope cars and football shirts which my son loved. I highly recommend Europe4Kids
