If you go early at the moment you do not need this service. The audio guide was not so interesting to me as it spoke about things merely from a religious perspective. I understand of course this is a church but I was going for the art and architecture and would have liked to

Dear Customer, we are really sorry that the experience was not to your liking. In August, the meeting point has been changed for needs related to the Covid-19 emergency. Viator has been urged several times to change the meeting point on its vouchers and web pages, without success up to now. We will urge a feedback again. For what instead concern the gratuity of the Basilica, it is written in the product description on Viator web site. You have paid for an audioguided tour of the church with a dedicated access. We apologize again for the inconvenience and send our best regards
