A. A tour of holy and historical places is only as good as your guide. Many local guides leave much to be desired in terms of their knowledge, their ability to comment on the spiritual significance of a particular site for Christians, and their command of English. Dr. Marcellino D’Ambrosio has twin academic specialties make him an extraordinary guide to France—he is an expert in theology and church history.

It has taken us years to identify Catholic guides of this caliber — of the thousands of local guides available for tours, these are the cream of the crop.
