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.
Great experience from start to finish! The tour guide was a lot of fun, too. If you are in Naples, this trip is a must!
Fantastic trip and our guide was awesome---wish I could remember his name. He was very knowledgeable and had a great sense of humor--highly recommend!
After researching the reviews on Viator, I booked this tour from Naples instead of from Rome because this tour from Rome included taking a bus from Rome to Naples ~ 3 hours each way which would have been uncomfortable. I made separate train reservations (Rail Europe) in advance which turned out to be a great move. We took NTV train from Rome to Naples (~ 1.5 hours) - easy and comfortable. Picked up tour in Naples right outside the Train Station in front of the STAR HOTELS TERMINUS (hotel). We were bused from there to POMPEII. POMPEII tour was awesome. Exceptional tour guide (Andrea - sp?) - with great historical insights and combined with some humor. Our Tour included Lunch - very nice restaurant - choice of Speghetti or Pizza - basic but good. Then bused to Mt. Vesuvius. Great experience. Hiked up path to top of cone to see inside crater. Outstanding views of Bay of Naples. Fast Paced - but GREAT. Would recommend to Tour Company starting tour earlier (started at 10AM) and allow more time at Mt. Vesuvius. Highly Recommend!
Our guide, Andre, could not have been better! So informative and entertaining! This is someone who loves their job and it is appreciated by his guests. Nothing but praise!
Its great to have a hotel pick-up.....Our guide in Pompeii Suzy was excellent !!!! The pizza lunch was great was great as well...Its quite a hike up Mt Vesuvius so do wear comfy walking shoes
This was a fantastic trip and I am so glad that I booked it. I travelled alone to Naples and it was nice to have a well organised trip booked up, I was collected from my hotel and dropped back there at the end of the day so felt very safe. Pompeii was amazing and the guide made it even better he was very knowledgeable and funny too which made it more enjoyable. Lunch was ok choice of pizza or pasta and a drink. Versuvius was also amazing it is the main reason I went to Naples and I am very glad I was able to climb it. I have to admit it wasn't as easy as I thought especially as it was quite a hot day but even so it was very enjoyable and the view was amazing. They give you an hour and ten minutes to go up and back again and I would have liked a bit longer just so I was able to sit at the top for a bit longer and take it all in (and cool off a bit haha). All in all a fantastic trip and would recommend it to anyone, good value and a great day out
I liked this tour so much that I booked another tour with the same company! Very professional and guide was excellent! They pick and drop you at your hotel!
Great tour to cover both sites. The tour through Pompeii was terrific and the hike of Mt Vesuvius breathtaking.
Definately recomended be prepared for some time under the sun though as shaded spots are very limited
It was a very satisying tour and very competently handled by Andre and ably supported by the driver. The tour was very interesting and informative mainly due to Andre and his deep knowledge of the subject and his ready wit. We were very comfortable and thoroughly enjoyed our trip to Pompeii and Vesuvius.
Guides were very funny and had tons of things to say. Mount Vesuvius was a bit disappointing as the weather did not allow us to see anything while on top.
The tour was great, the tour guide was very informative and kept us on track.
The pick up location was a little tough due to construction in front of the train station.
