Great experience. Can't miss this one if traveling to Rome. The Tour operator the best.
it was a truly great experience. Our tour guide was excellent. We got the prime spot were able to almost reach out and touch the pope. November was a great time to travel if one can brave the slightly wet weather.
The pope stopped right beside us for a good 7-8 minutes to pick up a baby and we had an amazing view of him and him of us receiving a truly close up papal blessing. Thank you I highly recommend this tour.
This tour was truly amazing. Great experience, friendly and helpful guides and just a wonderful experience overall.
Pickup at hotel was punctual. We were transferred to a bus and taken to the Vatican. Our guide took us to the Vatican gift shops and told us the Pope would bless religious articles. After that we were pretty much on our own. Hint: When the Pope appears, he is driven around the Square on the Popemobile. Try to sit on the outside perimeters to get a closer view, not in the center of the Square. Huge TVs are set up so you can view the Pope when he is speaking. When we were there, the crowd was estimated at 50,000 people. Well-worth every minute to see the Pope, whether Catholic or not.
Perfect! We were picked up at the hotel exactly on time.
The guide was excellent! Was brilliant in every language.
He was knowledgeable and informative
Could not asked for better except maybe to be dropped off closer to where we started from
Pope Francis Papal Audience was memorable and we received numerous blessings later in the week. Pope Francis spoke in different languages and in a parental soft voice. The ride was timely and gave us time to buy souvenirs. I recommend it to save you time/parking and frustrations/finding where to go with thousands of people going to one place!
Audience with the pope was amazing..we got to see the pope really close..second row..One tip is that tix don't guarantee seats so when you arrive make sure to try to get a chair right away you can do your shopping after..But besides that I recommended it and it was well worth it
We were very happy with our tour to see the Papal Audience. there were about 70,000 people in St. Peters Square and we were about 10 feet from Pope Frances. The bus made it easy for us and well worth the cost.
even though the crowds were large the tour company took good care of us.
This was one of the best experiences we have had. We had good seats and could not have been happier.
We just returned from Rome and attending the Papal audience was a great addition to our trip. I will say that our day was not quite what we expected or as advertised. It turned out to be a great experience--but our guide did not stay with us and we appeared to be very late to the square. However--if you wish to see the Pope while in Rome and to experience the excitement--it all worked out for the best. Take an umbrella in case it rains--and plan on being out in the square for about 5 hours.
