Wow! Impressive! Fun! All words to describe traveling with Emanuele aka Lele. I will travel again as a private tour guide. We did not have to worry about a thing, which made the trip so relaxing and fun. Lele is highly detailed and everything he plans is top notch with no issues! I had visited the Vatican on several occasions and never knew about the “behind the scenes” tour. We had an early morning buffet breakfast in the gardens before the Vatican was opened, followed by a private tour of the Sistine Chapel and museums. We also took an open air shuttle tour of the grounds including the Pope’s prayer gardens with beautiful water falls! Thank you Emanuele for a trip of a lifetime! 2019 Italy Tour
