the proposed, purchased and paid offer was different from the one then made, a part of the offer was missing, no refunds, no excuses and wrong suggestions on possible alternatives that forced us to change plans the next day to complete the purchased tour and not completed, alternatively. But the guide Martina was really good and managed in part to compensate for the bad organization and the lack of prior communication of the change made to the tour

I visited the Vatican museums two Saturdays ago with my partner, we were guided on the tour by the fantastic guide Cristina who told us so many anecdotes and so much history to make the visit unforgettable What is inside the museums is already something great, admiring it while someone tells you the story behind each painting makes the experience unique The guide was a priceless added value

Great Service

I had a very good experience from beginning to the end. Sara from Touristation greeted me with a wonderful smile and efficiently organized my skip the line entrance to the Vatican Museums. The museum and Sistine Chapel were fantastic and I will return with a guided tour next time to better learn about the treasures. Well done to all
