Was a brilliant day - well worth the money! Our guide Andreas was sooooo helpful, informative and amusing - his non-stop commentary throughout the tour really helped us understand what life was like back in Pompeii before Mt V changed all that forever.
The climb to the top of Mt Vesuvius wasn't as bad as I had expected - unfortunately, the cloud was so low that you couldn't see into the crater when you reached the top but it was very atmospheric and sorta exciting to be walking in the clouds on this infamous volcano.
I also loved that fact that there were only 9 of us in the group - but guess that's just a bonus of going 'out of season'.
And the pizza and vino didn't disappoint either!
A great day out. Pompei was magical and climbing to the top of Vesuvius breathtaking.
A must do trip.
Our guide was terrific and so enthusiastic, loved it!
This was an excellent tour! We felt very cared for throughout the day. The guides were very attentive and ensured that all of our tour needs were met. Our guide for Pompeii was very knowledgeable. She left us in the capable hands of the guides for Mt. Vesuvius. All was complemented by a great sense of humor and accommodation. I strongly recommend this tour. Julie
Fantastic. Loved Pompeii and Vesuvius. It was great having a guide at Pompeii because he pointed out little things you wouldn't even notice if you went by yourself. Meet some lovely people along the way. The walk up Vesuvius was a hard slog but well worth the effort-Amazing!!!
Great trip to Pompeii with entertaining and interesting tour guide. just great to walk through the streets of this ancient city overshadowed by the sleeping giant of Vesuvius in the background.
Then after lunch we climbed to the top of Vesuvius to look down into the crater and see the fantastic views over Naples. A very enjoyable day!
The Vesuvius/Pompeii full day tour was amazing. I highly recommend if you have the interest in history and energy to walk in the ancient ruins. Andre was a animated tour guide whose enthusiasm kept the tour interesting and engaging!
Very educational. Andreas our tour guide was knowledgeable and entertaining that made our tour much more fun than boring.
The trip was the highpoint of our trip to Naples. Should any of our friends go to Naples I would definitely recommend them using Viator for the Pompei and Vesuvius trip.
The guide (André I think) was great, he was really good at making the Pompei trip a storytelling experience, where he drew comparisons to how things are the same in several ways today, as they were back in the Pompei days.
On Mount Vesuvius we didn’t get as much time as I would have liked to have. We got 25 minutes for the trip up and 25 minutes to walk back down, and then a bit extra to look around at the top. I believe we had just over an hour, before we had to be back at the bus, which we only just made. My boyfriend is a runner, so he had no problems with the trip up, where I don’t have the best high-intensity shape (I’m not overweight or in poor shape), and I struggled a bit on the way to the top. I didn’t have proper shoes on either which I came to regret several times on the trip up and down Vesuvius. But the view and the sense of accomplishment is worth it all
To sum up: This trip is worth the cost and very important on Vesuvius: Wear really good sneakers
The mini bus picked us up from our hotel, the guide around Pompeii was excellent: informative and full of little stories that really brought the experience alive. Lunch was very pleasant and the trip to Vesuvius was also very good. All in all we had an excellent day, really interesting and with no hassle for us (we were so glad we'd decided against hiring car and going alone!). Everything was taken care of. Wonderful.
The trip was great, out guide 'Andre' was so funny and lunch was great. The trip up only take about 30 min to the top, but highly recommended. Wear good shoes, not flip-flops.
Tour guide(s) were great and very funny! I had a great time and would book additional trips with this company!
Fabulous day. Tour was perfect and tour guide very knowlegable and friendly. I recommend to all.
We arrived at the meeting point early. Our guide arrived at the appointed location about 5 minutes before he was supposed too. We found the meeting point easily based on the description provided.
At Pompeii, Andre was an excellent guide, informative and his English was very good. We liked how he would draw comparisons between Roman and modern culture. Considering Naples traffic the bus driver deserves kudos for his skills too.
We climbed Vesuvius. Sneakers or shoes are essential. I saw one girl in flip-flops but she was struggling. The pea size rocks on the trail are sharp and slipping is a distinct possibility. It is not a hard or long climb, if you are moderately active. My wife, who is inactive, did make it up and back but required several rests along the way. Nonetheless the tour allowed sufficient time for us to complete this.
This tour delivered exactly what was stated in the description. I would recommend this excursion to anyone who wants to see these sites.
