Guided tours should be banned in the museums. Period.

This is one of my biggest pet peeves ever when travelling.

Just a moment ago, while I was enjoying Raphaels in Pinacoteca Vaticana, 2 tour groups stormed the room and just destroyed my 'quality time' with the Raphaels. The groups monopolized the space in front of the paintings, taking pictures, and their tour guides spoke with loud voices (this is a museum!!) gave them information you could easily find on the internet. I bet they forget whatever he's saying the next second

For godsake, in this age of internet, google, and wiki, if you don't care enough to learn yourseslf the place and or pieces you're looking at, then don't bother going to the museums
