Great tour and Highly recommended

Nice to know the life of Pope John Paul II, and our tour guide / driver Michael was also nice and helpful. The van was also new and comfy with car seat for our little one. Highly recommended considering that we only booked it a day before and communication with the tour operator was a breeze.

Driven at first to the home of Pope Paul II, for the main museum tour of the day. Excellent start to the day and gives a full insight into his life. The journey there is about 50 minutes but this flies by driving through beautiful countryside. Then it's a short excursion to a Basilica. The name escapes me but it's a lovely place. The final 2 stops are big Basilica' s again and well worth a good look around. A fantastic day visiting the life of the Pope.

Very interesting tour and highly recommended!

Our driver, Zygmunt was pleasant and very helpful. It made our tour very interesting and informative. Glad I did the tour and picked the right day as well because we're only few in the group in the family home tour of Pope John Paul. Managed to absorb almost everything from his childhood life until he died. I recommend the tour and Zygmunt our driver and guide.
