I'm so happy that I booked this tour with Caron. She helped navigate us through the crowd and knew exactly where to sit so we would have a great view! She also translated all that was being said. She felt like a great friend! Thank you Caron!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: It was such a beautiful day and I felt blessed to share our holy city with you and the girls. I’m looking forward to your return to Italy dear friend. Thank you for choosing me, I’m blessed.

Caron M, a wonderfully engaging US expat guide, picked us up at out hotel and had already arranged for the necessary tickets. She knew a perfect place for us to wait until the square was opened and then moved us along to a place right along the barrier. Pope Francis (in his Popemobile) actually stopped right in front of us - an amazing experience. Thanks go to Caron for making such moment even more memorable. Having Caron arrange things made for a super easy way to get to see Papa Francesco.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Jim, it was my pleasure to spend this special moment with you. The pictures of Papà Francesco giving us the blessing over our heads are a wonderful momento of our time spent waiting for him. Say hello to your kitty’s for me and your beautiful and dear wife.

Caron was just perfect today when I took my parents to see the Pope. She was warm and friendly and our day was so much better because we had her with us. At the end of the day my mum says I felt I have known her all my life. It made the experience of the day with elderly parents (one in a wheelchair) so much more special because there was no stress. I cannot recommend her highly enough
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dearest Caroline, my sincere thanks to you for choosing me. I just adored getting to know your parents and it was a blessing and my absolute pleasure to help them get as close to the Pope as possible. What loves they are and I’m so pleased that they enjoyed this very important life experience and our day together. May God Bless then and hold them dear, as I do. I look forward to meeting the rest of your family on your next trip to Italy. Thank you for your kind words and review of our day.
