Best tour in a seven week journey!!
We travelled for seven weeks with our daughters (7 and 10) and our Vatican tour with Martina was hands down our best tour. The private tour was worth every penny, from her quickly buying umbrellas to keep us dry in line, to adapting her stories and knowledge to keep the girls mesmerized, to not having to wear this annoying headsets- definitely worth the splurge. We could spend as little or as much time in each place. She was passionate and knowledgeable. It was an amazing experience. We have done tours at the Eiffel Tower, Versailles, Monet in Giverny and more and this was everyone’s favourite. It was art and history all in one.
With our timing, we ended up going to the early morning access Vatican tour followed immediately by the colosseum underground tour with Vincenzo. In the heat and with the turnaround time very short, I was worried about how the girls would do and if we would have time to eat. WALT answered every email quickly and thoroughly, even sending me a labelled picture of what it looks like where we would meet our second guide. More than that, Joseph personally came to meet us and Martina and made sure we had lunch and a cab to get us on our way. (Must eat at Alice pizza, btw)
Our second tour was with Vincenzo who did a great job including our two girls in the adult group and is unrivalled in his passion and expression. He did not just want you to see the sights, he wanted you to hear it, to smell it, to feel it.... to experience it.
Planning a trip online and forking our great suns of money in advance can be very nerve racking. You will not regret your decision to use WALT. They were the best company we dealt with in a seven week France/Italy adventure.
