What was nice about this trip was we had Maria all to ourselves on the first part of the tour so we got very personalized service seeing Naples. The second half was with a different guide in Pompeii and she also did a nice job explaining everything to a now larger group. The nice part about the city tour is it got us situated for the rest of our stay in Naples.

Despite the drizzle, the guide made the tour thoroughly enjoyable - she was genuinely passionate about the art of neopolitan churches and the culture of Pompeii.

This tour met our needs during a quick 48 hour stopover in Naples. We booked the tour last minute. The representative I spoke with on the phone was courteous and clear about trip details. Our driver picked us up at our hotel promptly at 8:30. The Mercedes mini-bus was new and very clean and the driver courteous and friendly. We spent time touring Duomo di San Gennaro and then drove to other key buildings and stopped for some amazing city views before we picked up additional tourists to join us for the Pompeii portion of the tour.
Our guide, Maria, provided a great overview of how life was in Pompeii. We were able to tour the theater, Gladiators Barracks, Stabian Baths, House of Faun, Buildings of Eumachia, and Lupanari to name a few. Maria's comments were insightful pointing out many details along the way, things we would have overlooked if we were touring by ourselves. If you want to spend time wandering through Pompeii, don't take this tour. But if you want an informative overview without any worries, TAKE THIS TOUR! My experience with this Viator tour was outstanding.

Pompeii was the highlight of this tour. Our tour guide was fantastic. He was able to help you understand what life was like back then. Walking through the city streets of Pompeii was amazing. Although I would not suggest taking kids on this tour. There were some pretty explicit images. But overall very much worth the money.

One of the highlights of our trip throughout Italy. So much information it would be hard to remember most of it; but it was incredible! Very good tour guide and very good history lesson. Highly recommend!

Both tour guides were EXCELLENT! They were both on time, easy to understand, very knowledgeable, group was small. Nice vehicle, both parts of tour were just exactly what we needed and we left Naples feeling like we had seen everything we needed to see and know. Pompeii was unbelievable. Our tour guide that had to be the best!

We loved this it was good to see Naples on a good side it is a very strange place but it has alot of history. Just be careful in Naples. Pompeii is so beautiful and very informative guide. Great scenery and then we took a Ferry over to Capri awesome.

Very informed guide, after tour I want to know even more about Pompeii. Like the fact that our group was so small, gave us the oppertunity to ask a lot of questions.

This was worth the money. Although the City Tour was not that extensive, it felt like a "private" tour with Andy, our tour guide. He was knowledgeable, had a great sense of humor, and treated us like we were old friends. His tour of Pompeii was personal, extensive, and was one of the highlights of our trip to Naples.

Andre, our guide was fantastic! Very personable and knowledgeable. Other reviewers have said the city tour was not worthwhile, however, I really enjoyed the quick overview of the city highlights before heading to Pompeii. Of course, Pompeii was the star of the day, a truly amazing place! Highly recommended!
