The Naple's tour was just for us and then we joined the Pompeii tour. The guide was excellent,well paced, and knowledgeable.

This trip is certainly worthwhile if you have never been to Naples or Pompeii. The tour guide was a wealth of knowledge on Naples and Pompeii. I would strongly recommend this tour.

We had separate guides for Naples and Pompeii, both were very knowledgeable and keen to provide plenty of information. A very worthwhile experience.

Bummer that traffic slowed things down, but overall this is a great way to hit a few highlights in Naples, see Pompei and then get back to Sorrento in time to enjoy the late afternoon and have a nice dinner. Definitely a must.

We had the best time on the Naples/Pompeii tour with Viator. Andrew was an excellent guide and very well informed about Naples and Pompeii. We had such a fun time. We will remember Pompeii forever as Andrew brought it alive with his speaking tour!!! Our van driver and hotel pickup driver were the best drivers ever. thank you so much. We will recommend this tour to all our friends and to anyone wishing to visit Naples and Pompeii.

The Naples visit was a little on the short side, although The Basilca St Genaro was interesting and Pompeii was very very good and most important the guide Andrea I think his name is, he was very good in giving interesting information

Thanks to our guide Andrea! He provided excellent commentary and managed a large group with ease. The hotel pick-up made it really easy to access the tour from Sorrento.

Really enjoyed the Pompeii portion of this trip. Our guide was great and really gave you a feel for how they lived then - his energy level was great and clearly he was very knowledgeable. It was a lot of the fun. The Naples portion was just ok. Glad to go because we hadn't seen it before and there were a few things that were worth seeing. But if I was to go back...I would definitely go back to Pompeii - not so much to Naples.

Pompeii was the highlight for me. Until you go there, it is hard to understand the scale of what you see. Not the best place to walk around in the hot sun but I would love to go back and have more time. I would have preferred to have started earlier in Pompeii and had more time.

We enjoyed the tour immensely, and enjoyed Naples and Pompeii. The Roman Empire was an amazing civilisation Andrea our guide was very informative with a sense of humour.

Love love loved this tour, Tuscany is picture postcard perfect wherever you look. The visit to the vineyard for lunch was terrific and the wines tasted top class! Montepulciano and Pienza were quaint medieval towns that was very pleasant to stroll around. This is a long day but the coach was comfortable and the guides always factor in "comfort stops "

Excellent tour guide--knew his stuff and had a great sense of humor as well. One suggestion: We should've had headsets. Sometimes difficult to hear our guide, and we didn't want to miss a word!

I loved Pompeii. To think so many people lived there ! Our guide was very pleasant. I was not so impressed with Naples, but the church we saw and the views were wonderful. I would not go to Naples without a guide, but with a guide, great!

If you're staying in Naples, then it's ok. If you're staying in Sorrento, then be prepared for a very tiring day. It's a 1-hour drive to Naples and then 3 minutes to Pompeii where you will spend most of the tour. Still, Pompeii was fantastic! Very, very interesting and worthwhile. Our tour guide was helpful and informative. However, she was not good at controlling her group. First they took us to a store where they sell corallo products and told us to have a look around. Some people left, others shopped so in the end we got lost and missed valuable time getting all gathered up again. Anyway, Pompeeii was really interesting. As far as Naples, we only had the chance to get in the Duomo. It would have been nice to get inside the Palazzo Reale and in some other sights. It was a good tour but very expensive and overpriced for what we got.

Good tour, guides knew their history. Could have spent longer in Pompeii ie could have been an extra half day. History in Naples an eye opener and very interesting.

Guide Andrea was great, but we only stopped at 2 places in Naples, and not much information on the ride thru town. When we did get out at the few destinations, our guide was extremely informative and you could tell very passionate about the history of his country. The Pompeii visit was a definite highlight of the tour.

Skip the Naples City part.....there are much cooler and cleaner parts of Italy. This tour IS NOT half-day. We weren't finished and allowed to eat lunch until after 2pm. The Pompeii tour was great and the perfect tour if you wanted to see it, learn a lot, and are short on time.

Hotel pick up was great, however we missed hotel breakfast which started after our pick up. Our guide was great lots of fun we got great photos. There was no time allocated to lunch or souvenir shopping and only one hurried toilet stop (not everyone got to go) which reduced the enjoyment

it was worth doing. but not exciting.. not the guide's fault, but the world has striped pompeii of everything that is pompeii. all that is left is a lot of gravel. and brick. no heart left.

The Naples part of this tour was not that interesting but Pompeii certainly was. The tour leader had a good knowledge of the facts of Pompeii. Perhaps the group could have been better organised because there were English and Spanish speaking people in the group so the leader had to say everything twice. It is a long day out from Sorrento even though it says Half Day. We were picked up from our hotel at 7.15am and it was 3.30 before we returned. Don't plan anything else for the day if you choose to do this tour.

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

Naples was a big disappointment, not many places to see and once we got to Pompei many more people joined us for our tour and it was very hard to follow our guide and get photos. We went on many tours in Italy and this one just did not meet our expectations.
