We enjoyed the tour very much! Francesca did a great job!
Our seats were very close to where the Pope passes through.
very informative guide who managed to get us really good seats 2 rows back from where Pope Francis passed twice. instructions to meeting point were excellent.
Amazing experience. Our Guide was Great and knew so much he positioned us so that when Pope Francis entered we were seated 2 rows away 15 feet from Pope Francis. It was a very moving experience!
Loved how close to the Pope we were, but it was pretty hard to find out Tour Guide.
This was an experience of a lifetime! Thanks to our tour guide we got seats right against the railing and the Pope went right past us...twice!! We got some great pictures on one passing and a video on the next pass. This is something we will remember for the rest of our lives.
Brilliant. If you want to see the Pope up close, you must do this as the tour guides know exactly where and when to go for the best vantage points. Dont expect too much background and story telling from them as this is mainly for the guides to place you in the forecourt for positioning of when the Pope comes through and you can ask about what will happen and which way he will come in etc. We got absolutely fantastic pictures and a prime location 2 foot away from the pope mobile which we would not have got had we decided to do this on our own.
It was an amazing experience to be able to see the Pope up close. We have a great time and this company really knows where to position so as you can see him up close.
Our Guide was very informative and provided excellent seats to see Pope Francis. I was able to take excellent photos. It was memorable experience.

Amazing ,if you go to Rome this is a must see .
This experience was good. We arrived at the Vatican early in the morning and walked straight in after finding our guide. The explanations on how to arrive to the meeting point were quite easy to follow.
We were able to get great seats thanks to our guide. She gave us a 1-hour overview on the Vatican's story and then we saw the Papal Audience. It was very worth it! The ticket to attend the Papal Audience is free, but you pay for the comfort of having someone pick up the tickets for you and help you walk straight in, skipping the very long line, as well as explain the history of the place.
Enjoyed this and to see the Pope was amazing. The queue to get in was horrendous and it rained for the whole time we waited but was worth it.
If you get there early enough you can get in for free by yourself but I would highly recommend booking a guide to look after you. Our guide, Theresa, was fantastic and she gave us a really detailed briefing of the history of the Vatican and St Peters and it helped to pass the time from entry at 07:45 until the pope appeared at around 09:30. The guide also knows the tricks to get seats where the pope is more likely to stop. We were sitting next to a few families with very young children/babies and were within 3 metres of the pope as he passed by. A wonderful experience.
Highly recommend this tour we saw pope Francis in an auditorium . We're one of the lucky 7000 people who made it that day
Our guide was amazing! we got great seats and she gave us a short and sweet history about the vatican and what to expect during the papal audience. We were so close to the pope and saw everything!
This was wonderful! Our guide did everything he could to get us the BEST seats. One gate was closed so we RAN to another. I am so glad I used Viator! It was a wonderful morning and the Pope came right by us and my hubby got an incredible picture of him! Happy Day!!
We took the English tour. Gigi our tour guide was excellent!! He made sure we got the best spot to see the Pope and we did!! Pope Francis was right in front of us. Gigi also explained lots of facts related to the Popes, he was just excellent!!
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.
