Very good. Got to see the Pope up close and with the help of the guide stayed out of the very hot sun. Trip to and from Castelgandofo was interesting in itself and guide gave lots of information.
The tour was well organised, the guide was extremely knowledgeable and had a very good view of the Pope.
The coach was clean and comfortable and air conditioned.The driver was very polite and he drove very smoothly.The guide explained a lot of things to us on route and answered any questions.i was impressed that he could speak five languages.Early start was a good idea because it gave us time for a snack on route,and also time to look around Castelgandolfo.It is a much better way to see the Pope rather than the crowds in the Vatican.
This was just fantastic. To be able to see the Pope so close was just a great experience. All of our tours we arranged through Viator were just great. Very impressive!!
This trip was amazing, The scenary was breathtaking. The long stand was well worth waiting for. I feel privilaged to have been there.
The 2-3 hour wait outside and inside the residence was worth it. The village was charming and nearby scenery beautiful. We were within 25 feet of Il Papa who spoke from his balcony. This was a very emotional experience and very well organized. The only question was the initial visit to a Vatican gift shop near St. Peter's before heading to Castelgandolfo. The stop was a waste of time and very inappropriate. I don't know if this is standard or someone got a kickback. It couldn't detract from the amazing experience of the day.
Absolutely terrific! All 3 of my tours with Viator were great!
It was our first day in Italy and despite the 97 degree F temperature. The trip for the Papal Blessing at Castelgandolfo was wonderful!
What a wonderful experience. I would recommend this to anyone who is wanting to receive a papal blessing. It was unlike a papal blessing at St Peter's this experience was much more personal and moving. The tour left as schedule and they put us in line to get a perfect place behind the barrier. We stood just under the window. I can only say this was the highlight of our Rome adventure.
This was an experience of a lifetime. If you ever have the opportunity to do this tour when the Pope is at his summer home we highly recomend it. Our tour guide and drive were teriffic.
The tour guide was amazing! She was very king and had very good information regarding all the necessary topics. Time management was also perfect. Thank you very much! The tour was PERFECT!
It was an amazing opportunity to see the Pope. The tour guide was very informative and friendly. Please make sure to wear comfortable shoes and be ready to wait for at least forty-five minutes to get inside the Castelgandolfo.
