It would have been ok for me if I hadn't had my elderly mother with me. A walking tour is fine if you have no mobility problems. My mother suffer with Rheumatoid Arthritis, so getting around (at 80) is very slow for her. I don't think too much thought had gone into people with mobility problems even within the Vatican itself. The guide was unsympathetic and a bit impatient! For instance: she told us to take a lift to what floor? We did not know or what lift? and just walked off quickly. By the time my mother had caught up she had gone. We took the first lift we saw assuming that would get us to where we were going, but unfortunately it got us lost and we spent the next ten minutes trying to find our group. When we were located she wasn't too happy and neither were we! Anyway we did not complete the tour because it was becoming to stressful trying to keep up. We left the group at St.Peter's Basilica and enjoyed ourselves at a more leisurely pace. If you are thinking of taking this walking tour please be aware that unless your completely mobile it most probably is not for you!
Both me and my mum enjoyed this tour. The guide took into consideration, after being informed that my mother had mobility issue, and slowed down enough and kept checking to see if we were still with the group.
The weather was awful but about 10 minutes of Pope Francis arriving it stopped raining and the sun came out and the rest of our trip we had great weather! The audience it self was great we saw him really closely as he passed by in his pope mobile. My Mum whom I'd arrange the trip for was so in awe and pleased that she saw him up close and personal. I got great footage and a lovely picture of him that we both shall treasure forever!! Overall a wonderful experience but be aware it's a very early start if you want to get good seats!
One of the best day tour's ever. We had lovely weather and the Gaudi buildings and park were amazing up close and personal! The whole tour was great and the tour guides: we had two were both friendly, professional and full of information and interesting facts about Barcelona and it's famous inhabitants! Would highly recommend this tour! It does tire you out though!
