You definitely want to do this one if you are in Rome on a Wednesday morning But this is the only tour that I was HIGHLY disappointed in the guide. If I had to do it over again I would TELL my guide I am going on to get my seat and not staying at a shop for 15 minutes. I'm here to see the Pope not shop. Seating is NOT assigned so time is of the essence. Tip which our guide should have told us is to sit by the white fence rails. If you can get right by them you will see the pope with in 5 - 10 feet away. He drives around/through the audience through the lanes these rails create. We tried to sit right in the center and would have been better to be off center a little and right up to the rails.

An amazing once in a lifetime experience. The car picked us up in a timely fashion and we met with the tour guide, received our tickets and ventured to Vatican City.

Pick up from Hotel was great. Met guide and she walked us to St Peters Square. We asked twice for
Her to walk more slowly as my husband has difficulties. She didn't . When we got to the square she took us to a souvenier shop then through security and told us to sit up the front. That was the last we saw of her. No information on the square nor on the proceedings, timings nothing. We got more information from the security guards. Very disappointing I would not recommend.

This tour was a waste of money. No discussion. We were led from the tour office on a five minute walk to the vatican, once through security the guide told us to sit wherever we wanted and she left. End of tour! Do not fall for this scam. A complete con and waste of money.
