I felt lucky to have David as my guide to tour the Basilica and the Vatican! He was so patient, organized in his thoughts and engaging throughout the tour. Some pointers that made him such a fun and empathetic person: - encouraged questions from us and explained in a way we could follow along - gave a heads-up at crucial points that allowed us to prepare ourselves for what’s next, eg. when we had to be extra alert, when we were about to see a some fine detail, when we were going to enter a confusing/crowded place etc. - his knowledge was intense and he was good at sharing that in the form of stories vs bare facts Great experience and my entire group loved this time with him!
