Naples and Pompeii Day Trip from Rome

Rome, Italy

My Rating
2 star rating: It was OK, but could have been better

My Review

I wouldn't put 'Naples' in the title of the tour as we basically drove through the city to get to Pompeii, but it was a good day. We waited for more than an hour in the morning for latecomers to arrive, which was quite irritating (if you're late by an hour, you should be bumped off the trip!) and later in the day ended up waiting for the same latecomers who somehow lost track of time in Pompeii. All in all, a lot of waiting for stupid people.

Lunch was okay, not very filling (and none of the famous Napolitan pizza). Pompeii was beautiful though, and our guide who was quite the elderly gentleman took care to always try and find us some shade before launching into explanations. I think leaving on time would have allowed more time to explore. Better solutions should be found to the latecomer problem than everyone waiting for them on the bus.

It was raining hard, but it was amazing! And we were also brought to Palatine Hill, which I didn't expect at all.

My Review

David was lovely and made us all feel so welcome! I also loved all the little tidbits and insider facts he shared, as well as the small tour group (though in the face of the Vatican hoard, even the smallest tour group can feel lost!). I would prefer a longer tour however, even by just half an hour as I feel that we breezed through too many areas. Also, there wasn't enough time at the end to visit both the dome and the basilica, so we had to choose just one. For people with less time in Rome, perhaps the morning tour would be a better option.

My Review

Loved this tour! It was a bit of a hassle getting from my hotel in Centro to the pick up point area during rush hour (Copacabana), but it was all worth it in the end! We had three tour guides during the day, and I loved how motherly our first guide was, making sure we were all okay and having fun.

There was a good collection of friendly people on the tour as well. Definitely recommended!
