Our guide, Stephan, was amazing. His knowledge and personal experience was just incredibly interesting. He was very friendly, knowledgeable and happy to answer any questions. Well worth the tour.

The dishes were great, and the view was very nice from the terrace! The staff was friendly & there were no issues with the entrance tickets. It was a nice way to end the visit to the Dome

Andy our guide was excellent and provided us with loads of relevant information with much humor and in a most palatable approach. We fully recommend this tour.
