      Because of Covid we had our guide all to ourselves! If I had to pay extra for that to happen with our guide again, I would have paid. Was worth every penny. He was fully of information, loved questions, even when I’d get distracted by other works of art, he just flowed with it and kept right up. Amazing. Worth it. Will do it again next trip

      The tour of the museum was excellent. The guide was well-informed and highlighted the most significant aspects of the museum. I was almost late for the tour as I tried to reach the museum by walking through the park where signage was not the best. It was only after the tour that I discovered there was a fairly direct underground passage that led from the Spagna Metro Station to an entrance to the park and a straight path to the museum. With reduced numbers of visitors allowed in the museum, this was my best way to gain admittance and see what it had to offer.

      Excellent tour with great information. Great attention to detail. He was able to explain a lot in the limited time that the museum allows us to be in there which is only 2 hrs. Guide has nothing to do with this, this is out of his control. Remember no backpacks allowed but there is a holding booth that will look after your bag.
