Great presentation about the history of the Catholic Church by our guide. Seats that we had were on an outside aisle so that when the Pope rode by you could practically reach out and touch him. Quite overwhelming and beautiful experience.
Fabulous guide...lots of good information and lots of fun
Thank you Rebecca Newsom!!! we will be on any tour you are the guide for.

We arrived for our tour around 7:30am very well organized, our tour guide got us great seats with up close views of the Pope! While we waited for service to start 10:00 am this day... she gave us an informational history of the Vatican and Museums. Even though tickets to Audience are free, it was worth it to have the seats and location our guide was able to secure for us, highly recommend if this is important to you!
Tour guide was amazing!! Suggested we sit in the back row up against the barricade so we would have a front row seat when the Pope drove by and he stopped right in front of us. Blessed our family as well as a baby. She also did a fabulous job telling us about the Vatican.
Thank you so much FANTASTIC . the guide got us the best seats available . the pope was only a few feet away from us as he passed by. the guide was superb and very knowledgeable well worth every penny.
just do it
Francesca knew exactly where to seat us so that when the Pope came past he stopped five feet away from us! We had a baby in our group and the Pope blessed the baby right in front of us! The waiting time flew by because of the excellent commentary that Francesca provided!
Our guide made getting into the seating area very easy and made sure we sat in just the right place to see the Pope pass us twice. My wife was delighted to see the Pope at only 3 metres away. Our guide made sure the wait between taking our seats and the audience commencing was filled with interesting information about the Pope and the Vatican. I'd highly recommend this as an experience not to be missed by anyone visiting Rome.
The tour was fantastic. Our guide was extremely knowledgable. There is obviously a wait for the Pope and our guide did a terrific job of making the time pass quickly and was a wealth of knowledge. We used Viator for other tours while in Rome also which were of the same high quality.
Very good communication from Viator with lots of reminders and information. Excellent tour. Our guide Lucas was SO knowledgeable about the history of the Vatican and Roman history it was a pleasure listening to him. He got us front row seats in the seating area which couldnt have been better. Would absolutely recommend this tour to anyone wishing to see Pope Francis I.
Wow, Pope Francis was right in front of us and held a baby right beside us! I am amazed at the photos I got...memories to cherish!
Fantastic guide just loved Tiffany she was so lovely and knowledgable , got up close to see The Pope thanks to Tiffany , was a great tour would definitely recommend this tour
Punctual, very informative and great seats!
We would use this service again.
Our Tour guide was very well spoken and loved her explaining everything. I'd give her a 5 Star Rating.
We had great seats and didn't feel pressured it was an amazing experience.
Thank You Kimberly Fay
The tour guide was excellent and I would like to have heard more of the presentation if it wasn't for the earlier start of the papal audience due to the rain. The guide brought us to seats where we could easily see the Pope when the Pope mobile came around through the sections. I was shocked as to how close we were to him.
This was by far the highlight of my trip to Rome and it is without a doubt due to City Wonders Tour Guide, Tiffany, from Indiana! She was absolutely amazing! She got my group seats in the second row on the left side of the audience and close to the aisle which gave us a clear, close up view of the Pope three times. First, when he entered the square near the guard station in the Pope Mobile, then when he rode past the front of the audience, and then a third time when he rode past the left side of the audience prior to beginning his address. We were clearly placed in the ideal location. Prior to the Pope coming out we had to wait approximately an hour and a half and that is when Tiffany's friendly, charismatic personality shone along with her unbelievable knowledge of Ancient History, Christianity, and Catholicism. I felt as if I learned more from her in an hour and a half than I learned in my semester long college course. I was actually slightly disappointed that she had to stop her presentation for the Pipe to come out. Of course, I got over it the moment I saw the Pope. I would highly recommend this tour and if possible, be sure to request Tiffany from Indiana!
The guide was very informative and with her experience we were able to get a good seat which allowed us the blessing of seeing the Pope up close.
This was great! Our guide Francesca, ran ahead of our group and got us seats right along the Pope's route and we were 10 feet away from him, which made for great photos! She gave us lots of historical and anecdotal information about the Papacy and the Vatican. I know we could have gotten in for free, but there were thousands of people there and without Francesca and these tickets, I know we would have ended up in the back with the masses, seeing him as only a dot in the distance. I would pay for this agin in an instant! Thanks, Francesca!
