    Excellent opportunity without waiting I'm long lines. Affordable and friendly personnel. Give us a bus tour for free.

    Decent tour but get there 1hiur early in line and send someone to just get tickets- it’s a once a week event so that huge hall fills up fast

  • 10-Dec-2022

    Its free to go anyways. No information given. Just walk together in and say goodbye. Just go alone for free. Its the same.

    It was a wonderful experience. With the help of our guide we were able to sit up close to see the Pope.

  • 24-Nov-2022

    Our guide left us as we ran to the bathroom after he told us we had plenty of time. We felt lost but managed on our own in the end

    Seeing the pope is very memorable. It's a great experience. The tour guide took us to our seats with efficiency also he was very informative and patient guiding us through.

    You can just walk in and it’s free. The mentioned ticketed area near the stage and you can’t buy such ticket. Don’t be scam by this activity.

    We had booked this with great anticipation but was sorely disappointed. Due to mixed messages on the meeting point we ran between 2 different meeting points only to find we had missed the tour guides! there was no further communication from them, and the only contact was the call centre who had no idea . Next time it would be prudent to provide the tour leaders mobile contact , for cases where the customer is not late but just cannot find the them. As it turned out, we did get the best seats from entering St Peter's square on our own.

    Seeing him speak. Disappointed that Viator had no guidance as to where to sit, no guidance what to expect, no guidance as to how to get into St Peter’s. Basilica. We lined up on the wrong side. No help except to give us tickets which we could have picked up for free.

    For me, attending Mass with the Pope and being in the Vatican City was a bucket list tick for me. I was truly delighted and honoured to have attended Mass with His Holiness and then, being so close when he came around to see the crowds will live with me forever. A truly magical and holy experience that will remain with me forever. Would most definitely recommend anyone attending this experience to savour every single moment.
