Amazing! thank you so much, very well organized, guide on time, Michela is SUPER nice, she knows where you need to be in order to be able to see the Pope! don't hesitate to book it!
Our guide Seth was very nice and we were able to see the Pope who at one point was about 10 feet away! It was wonderful and a once in a life time experience!
It was great. We were two feet from the Pope! Our guide was so so helpful and knowledgeable. This is our second time with Viatour. They are the best ever.
Our tour guide was very good. She kept track of us, got us into our seats and then told the history around the Vatican.
Beautiful experience. Our guide looked for the best place and we saw the Pope very close to us.
Brilliant opportunity to see a world famous iconic figure up close. Very highly recommended, must do.
Our guide was excellent, and helped us navigate the intense crowds at the Vatican security checkpoint, as well as demystify the papal general audience, much of which was conducted in foreign languages. Our guide was enthusiastic, approachable and very knowledgeable. Best of all he knew exactly where to position us so we could take great pictures and really see Pope Francis. I would not attempt this without a tour -- worth every penny.
This was one of the greatest experiences of my life. Thanks to our guide who placed us within a few feet of Papa.
Our tour guide was wonderful! She got us terrific seats, was very knowledgeable, we were extremely pleased.
SO AWESOME. Gigi, our guide, was entertaining funny and got us all great seats that the Pope even stopped in front of us for a good 1 minute! We loved the whole experience and even if the ticket was free, I would pay again to listen to Gigi talk about the Vatican and the Papacy. :
The tour guide was very informative, but we had some problem understanding his words.
Fantastic tour. Our guide had all the tips for getting us on the fence so that we were as close to the Pope as we could be. She kept us entertained for the hour wait with plenty of information about the vatican and the current and past Popes.

Our guide was wonderful - she made sure we got good seats, had a vibrant and warm personality, and provided many interesting historical details. It was one of the highlights of our trip.
You can, if you want, get tickets for these Wednesday morning events for free - but I preferred to arrange this so the guide could give us some background and find the group good seats, which she did: we were next to the route the pope-mobile took, so got to see the pope twice - once in each direction. The day we were there was the 34th anniversary of the attempted murder of Pope John Paul II so security was tight and twitchy, and the gates opened early and the police shut off the square I think usually the guided tour would be longer. But I was very happy with this and got great photos of the Pope.
well organized tour with good presentation. The leader had chosen the best possible seats, and entertained the group with detailed talk about Vatican. well done.
Pope Francis is a gentleman and scholar who believes in Jesus. He loves people and the people loves him.
This tour was definitely the highlight of our trip! Our guide Guya was great and she got us the best seats in the house!
The pope passed 3 times in front of us. We were so lucky that our 9 month baby was blessed by Francisco! Yes, he was taken by the guards into the pope arms and he kissed him! Wow
The guide was such a big help figuring out where to go. Using Viator was well worth it. It took out the stress of figuring out what to do and where to go. What a great experience!!
An overwhelming experience. Thanks to our Tourguide Marina we skipped almost all Lines and had a perfect seating for the Audience. Well Done !
