We had an absolutely lovely time. The tour was well planned out and really informative. I would absolutely take another tour with this group. One thing to keep in mind if you choose this tour though. The climb up Vesuvius is no joke. There is one stretch that is pretty taxing even for people who are in shape. It was well worth the climb though.
OMG, pls pls if you are not in shape or a walker do not do not book this tour.
Mt. Vesuvius top view was a breathtaking worth all the rosaries that I pray. The pictures looks like you are touching the clouds. I realize that I need to go to the gym and stick to a workout routing. People in Europe are in shape and walk a lot of distance and dont eat like us. This shore excursion was hard for me and my legs, the combination of Pompeii lunch and Mt. Vesuvius is for a young people and people in shape a lot a lot of walking. Thank God that we went on November , nice weather. The tour girl was nice and knowledgeable, the pizza margarita was just ok. I highly recommend. Viator for all your shore xcursion reliable and professional people on time and nice and clean transportation. In conclusion I enjoy my day just a little upset with myself for not being in shape, my hubby on the other hands run to the top :
SOOOO glad I booked this tour with Viator. The tour guide showed up early to pick us up from the cruise ship, the tour guide and driver were very professional, knowledgeable and spoke English really well. I recommend this tour to any and everyone visiting Naples.
We had a great time on our tour to Pompeii and Mt. Vesuvius. Learned so much from our tour guide.
All the details fell in to place smoothly. Maria our guide was right at the port to meet me. She was an informative and entertaining guide. 1/2 the price of the rushed ships excursions!
Our first tour booked with Viator was great! Our guide in Pompeii was very knowledgable and enjoyable. We got a great education on Pompeii. We were served lunch at a very nice restaurant with choice of pizza or spaghetti-plenty of food! We were given plenty of time to walk up Mt. Vesuvius and well worth the walk. It was a great combination of riding on a bus and walking! It is a great tour for those that want some exercise
Great trip. Excellent guide who was helpfull, funny, very knowlegable and friendly.
Excellent tour. The view from the top of Mt. Vesuvius was great. We got to see the major highlights of Pompeii and our guide was very knowledgeable.
Awesome tour. A must do. Beautiful views on top of Mt. Vesuvius. Also, Margarita was a terrific tour guide and the pizza was awesome.
Pompeii was very interesting. Lunch was better than exected. We actually went to a restaurant. The hike up mountain was harder than expected. My wife did not make it up. The best is that it was half the price of the ncl excursion and was basically the same and included lunch.
We were on a NCL cruise and used a combination of Viator and NCL tours. Viator had superior tours with excellent guides. This particular tour had a great combination of history, walking and hiking for those inclined to have some exercise-besides it offered a nice lunch.
Great Tour just wish we had more time to explore Pompeii and to enjoy our hike up Mt. Vesuvius. The tour guide we had was fast, hard to keep up with her. Absolutely loved Pompeii, always been my favorite history lesson in school.
We were very impressed with this tour and our tour guides. Everything ran very smoothly from start to finish. I would recommend this tour to others.
Enjoyed viewing Pompeii even though it was rainy, windy and cold, our guide was excellent. Decided it was to cold and windy to do Mt Vesuvius and switched to Sorrento excursion. the guides were very accommodating in making this change.
We had a superior trip with Viator in Naples. We were able to visit Pompeii and Mt. Vesuvius. Also had lunch. The guide was readily identified. He spoke excellent English. We learned so much. And, it was very nice that there were only 4 of us, so it was more personalized. The cost was half of what the cruise ship charged. I highly recommend them! Joan Wentz
Amazing, our guide (Andrea) was exceptional, and Pompeii was breath taking. Some tourists decided to pass on the trip to Mt Vesuvius. It is a strenuous hike up the mountain, but in our opinion a do not miss. The smoke wafting out of the crater is ominous.
Great tour ! We were very pleased with our first Viatour excursion. We booked the Naples Shore Excursion - Mt. Vesuvius and Pompeii Day trip. The tour guide promptly collected us from the Naples terminal on time, and we made several stop picking up other travelers prior to beginning our tour. This was not a problem. We were a small group, around 10 of us. We toured Pompeii first. The tour guide spoke excellent English and was very knowledgeable and informative. We then proceeded to a pizza lunch, which was excellent with large portion for either pizza or spaghetti. Then to Mt. Vesuvius... we were on our own to hike to the top or wander at the base of the mountain. The tour guide gave us plenty of time to visit, and we were back to our ship in ample time for sailing. I will definitely use this company again in the future.
Excellent guide who spoke excellent English and knew his history. Loved Pompeii. I can say I've climbed Vesuvius....don't know if I'd do it again.
Tour of Pompeii was interesting and about the right length with a knowledgeable guide. It would be a big site to find your way round on your own. Lunch was efficient and adequate. Walk up Vesuvius was quite difficult but well worth it as the views are spectacular with the crater (no lava but some steam) on one side and the Bay of Naples on the other. Tour made special arrangements to get us back to the ship in time despite Naples traffic.
Andrea was our guide and he was amazing. He made Pompeii come alive for us. We could feel the people, the animals, the hubbub of the vibrant city as if it were alive today. He was awesome! The hike was great too. Pretty rigorous but great view from the top!
We thoroughly enjoyed this tour, departing promptly from the port at Naples and meeting our guide at Pompeii. Andrea was very knowledgeable and his commentary of the site was both informative and amusing. After a pizza lunch we travelled to Mt Vesuvius, a journey of 45 minutes,during which the weather took a turn for the worse and on arrival at Mt Vesuvius a storm was imminent and therefore for safety reasons access to the mountain was closed, disappointing but unavoidable. Good value for money excursion.
Just the right amount of time spent in Pompeii. Andrea, our tour guide made the tour a lot of fun and kept all ages engaged. Highly recommend the Vesuvius climb. I was a little worried about the climb from reading other reviews about how difficult it was. My husband, myself, our three teenage daughters, and our 9 year old daughter all did it with no problem on a hot day. Yes, it's steep, but certainly walkable and you have plenty of time if you'd like to take it slow. The views into the crater and out to Naples are beautiful from up there. Lunch was provided at a tourist stop pizza place. The pizza was excellent and the service was friendly and accommodating. BRING A WATER BOTTLE!! You'll even have an opportunity to refill it inside Pompeii from a spring fed fountain.
