I am 75 and traveled alone. This was an amazing experience. The best part of my trip. Met with tour guide easily.and he promised to get us good seats. He had us wait until the area he wanted was open. I was in the second row next to the barrier where the Pope rides by. A two year old was with the couple next to me. The first row people made room for us in their row. The Pope's secret service took the child and brought her to the Pope and he kissed her. Everyone was extremely excited. I got up close pictures of the Pope. Afterward I entered the Basicilica through the Holy Door. Well worth the Viator fee.No problems at all.

The experience of this was amazing. The guide got us six rows from the front and dead centre. it was perfect. It was an early morning and a great deal of waiting but the guide filled the time with information and explanations of what would occur so everyone new what to expect. There are no words to describe the feelings that you have experiencing the presence of Pope Francis. His smile warms your heart.

Despite sitting for four hours in cold and rain, it was a wonderful tour. Our guide was very informative and we were seated very near where the Pope drove by.

The decision to use Viator for the Papal Audience was by far, the best choice I could have made. We were able to sit in a section that allowed us to take some amazing photos. Thank you Viator!

This was very exciting for my daughter and me. We were fortunate to get in through a gate that opened directly in front of us so we did not have to go through the typical metal detectors. Our guide whisked us to perfect seats to see the Pope drive by us. It was a thrilling experience. Our guide also gave us a very extensive history of the Vatican which helped put things in perspective when we were there.

The tour could not have been better. Our tour guide was extremely nice and personable. She was very knowledgeable about Vatican history. She gauged our entrance perfectly. She saw that the guards were going to open up another gate without going through the traditional metal detectors. She was right and got us perfect seats to see the Pope up close and personal. It was an amazing experience.

We met our tour guide Vivianna, She was very friendly and gave us a very knowledgeable presentation with a little humour. She helped the group through all the security checks. She insured us we were seated in a great position. Well worth the cost if you are intent on seeing The Pope up close. The whole tour was amazing

Everything went well. Barbara was our guide and shes amazing. We could get a good place to seat. The only thing is that we had to wait the people that were late. I dont agree to wait more than 10 minutes like we did. But, never mind, was good anyway.

The guide was very helpful, in finding a very close sit next to the pope. She knew all about history of Rome and the churches and explain and show us pictures in her tablet, when she was explaining us. I learned a lot from her explanations.My respect for the knowledge she has.
