Roberto was not only such an informative guide but an attentive and considerate one, for my elderly parents in their 80s. Roberto brought to life, the story of St Bernadette around the beautiful city of Lourdes. As my mum has some difficulties walking and I was concerned we might delay Roberto in this tour, he assured me, telling me not to rush my mum. This was very thoughtful of Roberto and I was very grateful to him.

A wonderful decision to use a guide and we lucked out getting Lisa!

Lisa was exceptional. She was reverent, inspirational and engaging. She shared knowledge and history about the places we visited, told interesting stories that we would not have known, and showed us pictures and quotes on her iPad to give additional background information. Thank you Lisa, for making our trip even more special.
