Excellent tour, our guide was very a good person and the explanations very clear. Thanks for everything!!!!!!
An amazing experience to sit so close to see the pope pass. Was truly a trip highlight.
Not a Catholic but he is an enigmatic man of the people. The crowd of tens of thousands began chanting Papa Frank as the Papal car drove through the crowd. He stopped to bless a small child less than six feet away, Great photos. He went to every handicapped, sick or needful person and greeted them all spending two hours in the noonday sun., There was no one overlooked. Also they opened the Holy Doors into St. Peter's in this Year of Jubilee and we were some of the first to walk through into the incredible Basilica. The Pieta on the right and the Canopy in front, the Dove window, so much, art, architecture, history, religion, wonder.
Once in a lifetime. Great spot to see the pope. The guide stayed for 2 hours with us explaining St. Peter's and the square. Providing interesting stories and history. I would love to do this one again!
We were fortunate to have access to the area where the pope was. We were 3 rows back. Very close. Our guide gave an informative introduction prior to her departure while we waited for the pope and the service.
For me, it was amazing.
This was the best of all the tours we took! Extremely blessed to see Pope Francesko at 2-3 mts distance thanks to the place where the tour guide seated us - last line. The Pope passed by in his Papa Mobil right behind us. Indescriptible experience! A miracle that we were able to see him that close considering the thousands of people in the area. Make sure to arrive on time to the meeting point and to have a nice breakfast. Following reviews, we stay long after the Audience finish. We were able to see the Pope again when he was leaving St. Marco Square. Highly recommend!!
Getting to see Pope Francis was a real experience. We were seated right next to the place the Pope mobile went by. You could almost touch him. If I could do it over again I would have also booked the Vatican Museum with this tour. Had to wait 2 hours for tickets.
This was an amazing experience, our guide managed to get us 9 rows from the front to see the Pope. We could see his every move and expression. The talk she gave before the audience was very informative. She was a great guide. This is a must if you are visiting Rome
This was a once in a lifetime experience, to be able to be so close to his Holiness was amazing. It was a shared experience made all the better with our exceptional guide Steph. She had an in depth knowledge of the papacy and having managed so many groups, she knew exactly where to wait which allowed us to get seats so close.
Our guide Franesca was the best! She was very knowledgable and she knew exactly where to seat us. Pope Francis passed directly in front of us. A truly once in a lifetime experience.
this is not to be missed, our guide Giovanna put a lot of effect into her presentation, the seats were in a good position.
My Viatour tour was easy to book online and they were very helpful with any questions I had, even giving me directions from my hotel to the meeting spot. My guide's many years of experience proved valuable as all 20 of her group got front row seats and we were able to see Pope Frances very close up. All in all a very positive experience. Thank you
GianLuigi was the best. He had great information about the history of the Vatican and the Popes. He really took care of his tour group to make sure that we had the best possible seats for the event and boy was he right we were about 10 feet from the Pope. Honestly I wish the tour would have been longer as GianLuigi Gigi was so knowledgeable and had a great personality.
This is excellent. We were able to see the Pope really close. Would definitely recommend this papal audience tix and presentation.
It is beyond words, the entire experience was incredible. Our guide was very informative and engaging. Being that close to the holy father was an experience of a lifetime
It was great to have someone to lead us through this experience. Our guide also shared a lot of interesting history as we waited.
This was an amazing experience in St Peters Square and GiGi our guide was very helpful and knowledgeable
Our guide did a great job of getting us near the fence line so we could see the Pope drive by not once but twice. She was very knowledgeable and her talk was very interesting. Unfortunately she had to compete with some very rude Americans. Being from the US, I was extremely embarrassed at the rudeness shown to the rest of us around them. The guide prevailed.
we loved this tour. We had a good spot seat, so we could take picture to Pope closely. Hghly recommend.
Gigi got our spot right on. The Pope did pass by our location twice. Lots of information he shared and we were able to get in despite the huge crowd. What an incredible experience.
Excellent guide with very good advice about a good location to sit and take in the whole proceedings.
