The tour is very good.

The exceptional Juan Carlos guide, I do not report everything related to the historical, was attentive with all our queries. In addition, the Company reimbursed us the amount of the tickets since the tickets were free throughout the week provided by the Italian State. They also came to look for us at the hotel.

missed Tuesday meeting and postponed to Thursday

No one came to pick us up at the hotel as planned on Tuesday at 2:30 p.m., but thanks to the contact person (Emanuella, I think) that my wife contacted, who did everything to help us, the activity was postponed Wednesday then again on Thursday. Very interesting activity with a very competent and friendly guide.

Moved to fast for group to stay together

The organisation of this tour was poor! We did not get picked up from Hotel as promised and confirmed the day prior. We spent time by phone in the morning of the tour chasing the organisation. We were then collected by taxi and dropped off at the wrong meeting point. We then had to ask City Wonders guides for meeting point. As we were due to be collected we didn’t know where the meeting point was! The guide was rushed through the 3 hours. Skip the line still involves a queue. Not impressed with this tour. We had been with City wonders through GetYourGuide on three previous days all excellent.
