We had a wonderful experience touring the Vatican with Eugene. He was knowledgeable and entertaining and showed us so many interesting details that we never would’ve gotten on our own or with an audio guide. This was one of the best tours on our trip to Italy!

This was the highlight of our visit to Rome! Elaine with "What a Life Tours" did an amazing job - very knowledgeable, full of energy and FUN! First, we visited St. Peter's Basilica where she showed us all of the highlights. She showed us the best places for pictures, and planned our visit so that we could catch the changing of the Swiss Guard. Then, off to the Vatican Museum where we learned and saw so much! It was a great day - highly recommend!
