  1. Ken

    Took this tour thru Princess cruise. One of the best, if not the best, tour I have taken. The church was beautiful, not on the level of Notre Dame or Vatican, but still above average and the tour by Diana and the nun was fabulous. Only thing that could that could have improved it would have been to do it as a private tour not thru a cruise group.

    The Brother was very nice and the work they are doing is commendable. I hope this tour is offered in the future also.
