    Dear Maggie, thank you for the positive review from all of our staff. We are sorry that you did not enter inside some the chapels, but it is not our fault: some places are accessible only for people who want to pray or attend the Holy Masses.

    Traveling with teenagers...did this kind of last minute. Traffic was brutal getting there. The staff made it easy-the tour is a download on your phone so it's way easier if you bring your own headphones.

    I would definitely recommend this. Important: the guide is through your personal phone. Bring your own headphones! The line for St. Peter's is absolutely wild - I would never want to waste my precious time in Rome waiting in lines. The instructions of the meeting point are
