Excellent tour guide - very knowledgeable. Did a great job in getting us very close to where the pope was going to pass. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!
This exceeded our expectations by miles -- yes we had to gather about two hours before the event was scheduled to start but...we got into section 1...the tour guide kept us entertained with a history of Rome and the Vatican... we ended up only feet away from the Pope in his Pope-mobile...we could see both live and the video displays perfectly...we could hear everything clearly...the exit was very quick and orderly -- just perfect. Thank you VIATOR!!!
I have to admit that I was a little skeptical about how this would work. I knew we were getting there hours before the Pope would address the crowd. Francesca definitely knew exactly what to do and was a wealth of information. Before we were able to get in through the gate she talked non-stop sharing valuable information and explaining exactly what would happen when the gates opened. She secured seats right along the gate. Once seated, Francesca continued to talk making the time fly. Before we knew it the Pope was coming right down the land closest to my 85 year old mother - just a few feet from him as he passed by. An inspiring moment for all. .
I was literally not even 10 feet away fro,mthe pope. The tour guide was able to get us really good seats. He clearly knew what he was doing.
Great guide, with excellent historical knowledge about the papacy. She ensured we had wonderful seats and kept us informed until the Pope arrived.
Our tour guide was awesome! She gave us so much information. I would do this again in Rome!
We thoroughly enjoyed this. The guide was very informative and made sure that we all had seats close to where the Pope was going to be going by. I would recommend this to everyone who wants to see the Pope.
Flavinia [ from viator ] was amazing. Ran at the right moment as she got past the gates and got us our seats. We were able to be at a point where Papa Francesco passed on his mobile twice and that was what we were there for - to get as close to the pope while we seek his blessings.
I would give this tour one hundred stars. The Papal Audience has been one of the highlights of my life...it was such a buzz and I am not Catholic. There was a definite joy in the air and the guide managed, through her experience to get us fabulous seats and we were within three metres of the Pope in the pope mobile. During the wait for the mass to start the time flew quickly as the guide filled us in on relevant information that was informative and interesting.
Perfect, perfect perfect!! Our guide was able to get us seated in an advantageous area. Pope Francis drove and stopped about 20' away from our seats. Given the crowds and the process to get the free tickets ourselves, this was well worth having someone do all the legwork for us.
The tour was a great experience. I didn't know what to expect, but the tour was a five. The guide was great, explaining a lot of the history of St Peter's. Ig was very good.
This tour guide was great, full of stories, and very passionate. The tour guide was able to get us great seats. The Pope drove by where we had our seats twice which was a treat and he also came out an hour earlier than scheduled which was a nice surprise. This was a great tour would definitely recommend it to anyone it’s was a real great experience.
Trip was fantastic! Tour guide was great. She put us in a great area as you can see by the pic.
Good instructions on finding the meeting point. We had good seats and position with seeing the Pope.
Glad to have the papal audience pre arranged rather than just "chance" it. Good experience. "Bucket list" ticking moment.
We had a great guide. He conveyed a lot of information about the history of the Vatican and the Papacy while we waited for the Pope's appearance. For a Catholic, it was the experience of a lifetime.
Absolutely wonderful and blessed!!! The highlight of my Rome trip!! A reverent happening!
Amazing, well organised with charming, intelligent and well informed tour guides.
Our tour guide was wonderful and kept us entertained and made
sure nobody pushed in front of us or took our seats. She really
looked out for us. This was an experience I will never forget..
Seeing the pope was unforgettable. Having a reserved seat was even better.
Once in a life? Can you imagine being at one meter of Papa Francesco touring around you in St Peter's square? I've been there, Yes!
Thanks Viator and CityWondres Tours.
Flamenia was our tour guide and was excellent! Even though it seemed we were faraway from the stage she insured us our seats were great! She was right!! When the Pope drives thru the crowd we had an excellent view to take pictures!! What an overwhelming feeling it was to be so close to Papa Francesco! Everything was more than expected! Our instructions were easy to follow and our tour guide knew what she was doing!
