My Review

Since I was a little boy and read about Pompeii I have dreamt of going there. Have been in Italy many different times and locations, but this was the first time we made it to Pompeii. It was a very special trip bringing our children and then my mom and dad along a group of 6 people. My dad has been there already back in the late Fifties and could add to the stories that our competent guide were telling. Whereas Pompeii was fantastic and a "must do" thing, the trip to Napoli and driving through Napoli was unnecessary and pretty much waste of time. It was also sad to see how Napoli has let the city go with more trash to go around than any other place in the world we have ever been. So good advice Viator is to skip the Naples bit and focus on Pompeii and maybe other ancient stuff in that area. Hans, Denmark

My Review

This trip with Simone as our guide was definitely one of the highlights of the 1 week long trip. We have been to Rome many times, but have never done a bike trip in Rome and Simone managed to make the trip very fun and interesting. He is knowledgeable and at the same time has a great sense of humor and succeeded in making everyone feel comfortable even though it was slowed down with having our two children and my parents of 75 and 78 on the trip and it was raining part of the day. SUPER!!! This is a MUST-DO kind of thing. The only thing we may suggest is that Viator should probably make it clear that this is a very streneous trip and should not be advised for children below 12 and elderly folks who are not in good shape and used to biking. before getting to Via Appia and biking home you do get into some pretty heavy traffic areas and this is too dangerous for younger children and the length of the trip is long (we were on the 6 hour one, which due to weather ended up being 7½ hours). Simone, however, was fabulous!! Hans W, Denmark
