“Katia did a great job getting us in and out of one of the most beautiful places we have ever visited. The line outside the Vatican Museum was incredibly long, and being able to skip the line and just walk right in made me so grateful to have used Through Eternity Tours. Katia possesses a high level of knowledge and was able to convey the perfect amount of information to us; not too much information so we'd get bored, and not too little. The Essential Experience was the perfect fit for us. My family of 5 which includes my three children who are all in their mid-twenties, never felt rushed and we were able to see everything we hoped to see. Thanks for making our trip to the Vatican so memorable.” see lessJuly 23, 2015 Mark & Maryann Nakamura

“We were booked on to the above tour on 13th July, 2015 commencing at 10.00am. We were met promptly by our guide Cinzia. Cinzia proved to be an excellent guide. She was informative, very knowledgable amusing and professional. Her knowledge and love of Ancient Rome really made the city come alive to us and we came away knowing so much more about the city of Rome. This tour was the highlight of my holiday and that was due to Cinzia and Through Eternity Tours. I have used other tour companies in the past and this was the first time I have used Through Eternity Tours. Right from the start I have found your company very professional and helpful. In my opinion you are the best Tour Company I have ever used and I would not hesitate to use you again an hope to do so on my next city break. ” see lessJuly 23, 2015 Isobel

“Dear Through Eternity Tours, My family booked several tours with your company in Rome and Florence and they were all spectacular!! Your tour guides spoke excellent English and they were able to weave their knowledge of art, sculpture, religion and politics of the time to make history alive for my two daughters ages 14 and 12. I would highly recommend all four of our tour guides to anyone taking a Through Eternity Tour. My children particularly enjoyed the Sistine Chapel Tour before It Opens to the Public Vatican Museums and St. Peter's tour and the Underground Colosseum Tour (plus Third Tier), Roman Forum and Palatine Hill tour. While both of these tours were long, our guides kept on a good pace and provided us with interesting insights into the connection between the Catholic church and Renaissance art/artists and Roman politics and culture. Through Eternity Tours certainly made our trip to Italy much more memorable. Thanks so much!” see lessJuly 22, 2015 Nancy Dickman

“My family and I really enjoyed the tour of the Uffizi Gallery with Corinna. She was charming and well spoken and answered all our questions. She made sure the tour was comprehensive and logical, touching on all the major pieces. The gallery and the Medici family came to life. I can't say enough nice things. It was so worth the money to have the personal attention of such a knowledgable guide. I will certainly use your services again!” see lessJuly 17, 2015 Lucy
