Fantastic day trip! Thoroughly enjoyed both Mount Vesuvius and Pompeii due to the brilliant guides, who were very friendly and informative. Only downside we felt was the lunch due to the service. Apart from that a very long but enjoyable day!
A terrific day out with Angelica and Mara, our two guides. Lots of interesting nformation given on the way there, which I really appreciated. There is quite a lot of walking to get to the top of Vesuvius, but I was determined to get there - unfortunately, it's rather tricky coming back down because the gravelly stones can slide under your feet, so do make sure you are wearing good shoes - flip-flops just won't work.
After a slightly later than planned lunch, we went to Pompeii which was the absolute highlight of the trip. It is just incredible and the guide brought it to life for us so well - I just wish we had had longer there. It was much bigger than I had anticipated, and so well-preserved that you really feel that it couldn't possibly be nearly 2000 years since it was covered in ash.
I can't wait to go back!
I loved the fact that the guides were able to tell us about interesting history while we were driving but also gave us quiet time on the journey as well. I also enjoyed having a guide in Pompeii to touch on all the points of interest so we didn't have to have the feeling of wandering aimlessly. Also on the way back our guides gave us some tips into where to eat during our stay in Rome, like how to find a more local eatery as opposed to a more tourist eatery to get the full authentic experience and other tidbits on how to experience Rome as a local. Just all in all a fantastic tour. Just FYI that the hike up to the rim of the Volcano is suuuuper steep, nothing can be done about that but just be prepared!
Lots of fun, was disappointed that we didn't get to do the climd, I didn't read the paperwork correctly. It's a must-see, so much history! Thank you mike and Antoinella (i really hope i spelt her name right!!)
This tour was probably the most amazing experience that closed out our trip to Italy. Everything was completely amazing and overwhelmingly emotional, but on our last day, we took the Pompeii day trip and were blown away by the awesomeness of the whole experience. Our tour guides, Anna and Luca were informative and patient and completely professional and had a wealth of knowledge before, during and after the tour experience. The guides in Pompeii (whose name escapes me) was so well versed and educated, it felt like he took us back. He was knowledgeable and humorous. What a fantastic experience, if you don't do this tour, you are missing out for sure! Way to go City Wonders!
My tour guides were wonderful. I was impressed with both Sara and the other female guide. They had excellent knowledge of the culture and history. I would book again with this company!!
Mike and Daniel were a great team, they really did work well together. The joker and the scholar.
An early start but well worth it. We had a very informative guide, Peter, on the coach and he knew when to let us rest. Lunch was a little rushed as there were so many coaches arriving at the restaurant but was very good. Pompeii was amazing. So very moving. Our guide (whose name I can't recall) was very informative too. We learnt a lot that we wouldn't have found out but visiting it without a guided tour. Would highly recommend it.
Fantastic tour, long day but broken up nicely - kids 7 and 9 enjoyed it!
Great tour, informed and friendly guides, would definitely recommend !
The tour was exceptional but challenging wit a lot of "hard" walking. It was comprehensive with an outstanding guide who really knew details and was equally interesting and entertaining. The bus stops at that little store along the way were horrible with food selections.
Wonderful... Our tour girls (including our coach driver) were terrific. they were full of useful Roman and Italian history and culture throughout the coach trip. They looked after us so well throughout the entire day. They were so friendly and made our day extremely interesting, entertaining and enjoyable. I have no hesitation in highly recommending this tour. Booking with Viator was so easy and the website was very user friendly even for a novice computer user.
