Jenny was our guide and did an excellent job of focussing on the most interesting aspects of the church. There is a surprising amount to see and Jenny was able to provide new insights on the key sculptors and painters. Well worth a visit.

Our guide, Jenny, was wonderful- so knowledgeable, engaging, enthusiastic and friendly. I was so glad I booked a tour rather than wandering through aimlessly on my own - there is so much that I would have missed.
