    A really great experience! The works of art and sculptures in the Vatican museums are really breathtaking and towards the end of the tour the highlight takes place: the stay in the Sistine Chapel, a single work of art and the place where the cardinals choose the Pope. Our guide Deny M. has us with us very good knowledge of German through the museums / Sistine Chapel, had enormous specialist knowledge, always brought in suitable background stories and also integrated the children well into the group several times and gave them age-appropriate explanations. I can only recommend a German-speaking tour with Deny!

    Very professional and attentive staff, especially Dario, who once hired online sent us a message and made himself available to help us with everything. The guide was very good and the visit, despite being long, was quick. At the office we asked Dario about the guided tour of the Colosseum and despite being complete, he promised to try to find a gap and after a while he found us a place for the next day at the Colosseum. A service that deserves 5 stars
