This tour met our needs during a quick 48 hour stopover in Naples. We booked the tour last minute. The representative I spoke with on the phone was courteous and clear about trip details. Our driver picked us up at our hotel promptly at 8:30. The Mercedes mini-bus was new and very clean and the driver courteous and friendly. We spent time touring Duomo di San Gennaro and then drove to other key buildings and stopped for some amazing city views before we picked up additional tourists to join us for the Pompeii portion of the tour.
Our guide, Maria, provided a great overview of how life was in Pompeii. We were able to tour the theater, Gladiators Barracks, Stabian Baths, House of Faun, Buildings of Eumachia, and Lupanari to name a few. Maria's comments were insightful pointing out many details along the way, things we would have overlooked if we were touring by ourselves. If you want to spend time wandering through Pompeii, don't take this tour. But if you want an informative overview without any worries, TAKE THIS TOUR! My experience with this Viator tour was outstanding.
We planned to pick up the tour at the Duomo stop, which we understood to be an option and which according to our information was closest to the Napoli train station. Apparently this is no longer a stop for City Signtseeing but only a "shuttle" stop. We were allowed on the shuttle but there was no commentary, everyone conversed in Italian. We got off at the archeological museum, looked at all the exhibits, and waited at the City Sightseeing sign outside. When a shuttle arrived, the driver told us we needed to find a different bus, like the picture. He gave us a brochure and so we waited and waited for the "real" bus to arrive. We had hoped to use this tour to get an overview of Naples but after seeing only the section from the archeological museum to the Piazza Municipio we were told to get off the bus. We waited around at the Piazza and finally another bus took us a through some of the route we had already seen and dropped us off, saying it was the end of the tour. Our intention to see the city was dashed we could have taken a cab to the museum for the cost of this "tour".
