The tour was great, we were only 3 people so we could interact with the guide more easily. One thing to know is that the passetto di borgo was closed for restauration (May 2019) so we didn`t get to walk in it as promised in the tour but I guess that`s not the company`s fault.

Although the castel was lovely. The woman at the reception was very rude. She was no help at all, I have been to many places but she was the most rudest receptionist I encountered.

Dear Guest, if you are talking about the receptionist inside the Sant'Angel Castel, she is not from our company and we can not do anything about her behavior with the guests. For us, the MEATOURS & EVENTS company, the guests and their necessities are the priority, from the check-in moment at the meeting point with our members of staff and with our guides during the tour. Thank you Best Regards MeaTours & Events
