We enjoyed a full day tour of Pompeii and Mt. Vesuvius. The morning was spent at Pompeii with our guide who was very knowledgeable and fun to be around. I am so glad we had a guide on this tour; otherwise there would have been a lot that we would not have understood. After lunch at a nice restaurant, our guide took us to the base of Mt. Vesuvius and we had the option of hiking to the top or just relaxing at the base. There was 4 of us in the group and we all decided to go to the top. We were glad we did as it gave us an appreciation for this incredible volcano. All in all, it was a great day and I would highly recommend the tour with Viator.
Knowledgeable guide. Lunch not great but the view atop Vesuvius is well worth the hike.
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!
An outstanding way to spend the day. To walk the streets of 79 AD was quite an experience.
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!
Pick up close to the hotel was on time and efficient. Tour excellent. Guides very good and a very nice lunch by the ruins in Pompeii. A great overview for Pompeii and just enough time to do Vesuvius - the most difficult part of the walk up are the zig-zag bends at the beginning - don't be put off!
The Vesuvius/Pompeii full day tour was amazing. Andrea our tour guide was knowledgeable and entertaining with stories. Lunch was pleasant. Would definitely recommend this tour to my friends. Make sure you wear joggers/comfortable walking shoes not flip flops as some people did and found it difficult to climb Mt Vesuvius.
This tour was the reason we visited Naples)) And one of the reasons we decided to visit Italy. It was August 25. How very convenient - all the pick ups and drop offs. The tour was a lot of fun, many thanks to our highly professional guide Andrea! So many memorable comments and explanations! About donkeys and pizzas, saunas and gladiators.. The most exciting moment was when we approached the Pompei city-centre square, which is kind of sandy, and at that very point in time the storm began - so very cloudy and windy - because of all the sand in the air it was hard to see and hear. Vesuvio looked gorgeous then. Absolutely stunning! Really symbolic. It couldn't have been any better. I've made a video of that storm. Unfortunately, I've accidently deleted it..((
Soon it started to rain. The tracks turned into streams.. no, rivers! "Close your eyes and follow me" said Andrea)) This shower was heavy, then there was this just in time lunch. We wern't able to make it to the top of Vesuvio due to this weather conditions, but we came on our own the next day and made it!
Thank you very much!
The tour was awesome. The personnel was knowledgeable and very likable. A great experience all around!
Andrea was entertaining, with a great sense of humor and depth of knowledge. We learned so much AND had a blast. There is no better way to see Pompeii and Mt Vesuvius than with this guide. I would recommend it to anyone!
Had a fantasic day out. Pompeii was very interesting and worth having a guided tour. The tour guide was really good and I really liked having the ear piece - you could wonder off a bit to take pics and still hear the info. The lunch was nice - pizza or canelloni, with a drink. The walk up Versuvius was good, I was pleased I had my trainers on, some of the girls had open sandles, which must have been uncomfortable. The walk is rubble all the way up. We were told to take a jacket, but it was just something to carry, it was a hot day and still warm at the top of the mountain. Everything went very smoothly.
