This was a day trip not to be missed. Our guide, Melanie, was outstanding. She has a wonderful attitude and seems to love her job. The bus driver was great. Always felt safe, even on those curves up to Mt Vesuvius. Enzo was our guide in Pompeii and he made the place come alive. Pompeii is so interesting, now I want to learn more about the excavations there. Mt V was a hike!! But at 72 and 68 my wife and I were able to make it. I will definitely book through Viator again. We got all we were promised and more.

OUr guides both on the bus and Vincenzo at Pompeii were interesting, informed, helpful and interested. Well worth every penny and I would highly recommend the experience and I don't think you could do it off your own back for this price. The pizza and meal was awesome. Would recommend trippers to go to the little delicatessen that is a few metres from the bus stop/ toilet break not the services that everyone is ushered into for a quick purchase of buffalo mozzarella on the way back: deliciously good and fab for tea when you get home to your hotel.

I bought this trip for my friend for Christmas to allow her to fulfil a lifelong ambition of seeing Pompeii and Mount Vesuvius. We had high hopes and we weren't disappointed. We were lucky enough to have Melanie as our guide and she made the day really special. The locations of Mount Vesuvius and Pompeii were amazing in their own right, the views back from Vesuvius over Naples a particular highlight of mine. Melanie however kept us entertained with facts, figures and humour on the 3 hour journey down from Rome and back again. We were looked after from start to finish and it was a joy to be a part of the tour. I can't recommend this highly enough. Melanie, if you read this, we took your advice and visited La Carbonara in Monti on our last night after booking! and had the best meal of the trip. :- thank you for the tip. Liz and Jen

The tour guides were very good. They provided information about the region we were driving through. The tour was very well organization and structured, with a short stop in the middle of the 3 hour bus ride, to help break-up the ride. The tour guide at Pompeii was excellent too.

Amazing experience I honestly could not fit how much of a good time we had on this review. Our tour guides Melanie and Hector from city wonders were informative and made the day fly by. This is a must in my book and hopefully you will get the same tour guides. Thanks for everything we will be back.

We had a wonderful day on this tour. The guide who travelled with us and the local Pompeii guide were both passionate and interesting. Don't visit Pompeii without a knowledgeable guide, as you will miss so much detail. Lunch was delicious - a pizza in Naples - and then the hike up Mt Vesuvius was not to be missed. The hike is relatively steep, but there is no need to go all the way if health issues prevent this. My husband and I are both in our 60s and reached the top ridge in the time allocated. Highly recommend this tour

Pompeii was definitely interesting and I was amazed at seeing the grooves in the cobblestones from the chariot wheels. Be aware that hiking the route up Mt Vesuvius is strenuous, but worth the climb. We had the same guide from our previous tour of the Catacombs, Erneto. He has so much knowledge!

Awesome can not begin to describe our tour with the best guides ever! we had two groups split onto one bus. with our guides giving us detailed information during the 3 hour bus ride to Pompeii and Mt. Vesuvius, so the ride didnt seem very long at all. Pompeii was everything I had hoped it would be, with just the right amount of time spent when you factor in the crowds and the heat.The pizza was very welcome and very GOOD!! which you burned off by climbing a active volcano!which I must say was a challenge to climb and not for everyone. It has a very steep grade and soil thats like an open bag of dry concrete.But once you reach the top you know you have accomplished something not very many people in the world have had a chance to do.
I have to give our driver Antonio a giant shout out, he made the drive up and down Mt. Vesuvius in a giant tour bus seem easy... What a ROCK STAR!!! Thank you Roberto, Lukka and Antonio for a WONDERFUL tour!

Great tour - really got to see and learn a lot both from the tour and local guides. Bus ride was about 3 hours but was never bored with great stories/information from the two guides. Helped us with were not to shop tourist traps but fell short of guiding us to particular shops a good thing!.

Try not to go around May to the mountain - there are a lot of little Nats that can get VERY annoying.

This tour is with a tour company out of Rome. It's great and the tour guides are fun and give you a vast amount of historical information. You get to see Pompeii and have a few minutes leisure time to take pictures. Great guide in Pompeii with a lot of information. The pizza in Naples was really tasty although it did take a little long to serve. The highlight of our trip was climbing Mt. Vesuvius, it's definitely not for the faint of heart but worth it. I do wish they would have given us a little more time to shop for souvenirs. Overall a great trip.

Let me start with the fact that our guide, Antonella, was AMAZING. Very funny, attentive, helpful, and informative. She did a great job getting a lot of information in without making us feel overwhelmed at the end of the trip. We loved her and were grateful she was our guide. It's a very long day, but so worth it. It's important to note that the climb to the top of Vesuvius is not to be taken lightly. It's a long set of switchbacks up loose pumice gravel. If you use a trekking stick, bring it. And leave the flip flops at home. It's A LOT to take in on one tour and somehow they do it well. BRING WATER and snacks and if you can find a way to get a coffee in you before 7am, DO IT. Then just enjoy the ride!
