Sara is one of the most knowledgeable guides on a platform full of them. I always enjoy taking a stroll through the streets of Rome and learning about its fascinating history. Time well spent.

As a Roman Catholic I was offended by her use of the term propaganda when speaking of historical conversions. This is what people believed at the time, bile propaganda is an insinuation of mistruths meant to manipulate people toward a particular viewpoint. We cannot say what is truth or what is fiction because religion such as Catholicism relies completely on faith of the believer. Her description was there for offensive. I appreciate all of the languages she speaks however in this case if somebody is giving a tour of the Vatican they should have a theological or historical academic background. Having studied the history of the Catholic church in graduate school my expectations were perhaps too high but I would expect something a little bit above a pedestrian tour. For instance we don't need to be told it that it can city is separate from Rome. I think that is widely understood. I also think she spent time complaining which did not add to her otherwise sparkling personality which was her asset. I didn't learn very much from this tour and switched over to Ian's tour of Bruxton, England, which I found far more enjoyable and informative. I apologize for waxing negative these are my true feelings. It does not mean I will not watch another one of her walking tours, I probably will.

Reply from Heygo
Hi Elissa, Thank you for your feedback. It is very much appreciated. We're sorry to hear you felt offended by the term "propaganda" used by Sara during her Castel Sant'Angelo to Saint Peter's Basilica. Sara is a licensed guide for the Vatican as well as Rome. She studied specifically to give factual tours of these specific locations but hasn't studied to educate on a religious point of view. The goal of Heygo is to bring people closer together and while some knowledge might seem obvious to you, it might not be to others. I would encourage you to take the time to read the descriptions of each tour from the tour pages as they are usually a great way to get an overview of what the tour is about and avoid disappointment. We look forward to seeing you again in Rome! Happy travels!
