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.
Better than I could have ever expected. Great seats first row in 2nd section so Pope Frances came very close to us. It was awesome and fabulous and moving.
Love this tour. Highly recommend, we were close enough to see Pope Francis and gets some very nice pictures. Ricardo our guide was very knowledgeable and loved his job. He did a great job getting us through security and keeping us all together. Highly recommend.
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!
We had a good seat . Saw the pope really close. The guide tour was on the point. Learned alot from her. I would highly recommend it.
Una experiencia inolvidable. Como argentina, es un orgullo ver a un compatriota es este lugar y escuchar sus palabras fue maravilloso. La organización de Viator es muy buena, súper recomendable.
It was a amazing expirence!!! Fantastic!! Will definetly recommend.
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
Gigli was great he was very informative and his attention to us was lovely, he also knew how and when to get us the best seats to see the pope. Thank you Gigi

Perfect way to miss the crowds, get good seats and learn about St Peters Square. Our tour guide was organized, professional and informative. Great value for the money!
Tour guide got us right along the edge in the seated section to get an up close view of the pope.
We never ever thought We could in our lifetime be so close to the most holy person on this planet and we did exactly that. What a god feeling it was and the atmosphere to go with it. We are now blessed by being there and believing . God hear our prayers.
Guide sat us further then 2000 but we were 10 ft from him on his ride about.Excellent guide
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.
Giovanna or G is wonderful! Highly recommend her if you want indepth information about the Vatican and Rome. She was also quick enough to get our group seated near the front of the stage. Thank you G!
We were only about 20 feet away from the Pope as he rode by....never expected this...The lady tour guide was one of the best I have encountered....Highlight of the whole trip !!!!
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.
