Excellant tour... we were met at cruise terminal by our driver and tour guide... only 6 people on our tour of Naples.... the van was small and hard to see out the windows, but our guide was excellant and she spoke great english. We stopped at the Cathederal then around the city and up to viewpoint overlooking Naples....beautiful. Then to a plaza and a chance for expresso and baked goods. Then drove to Pompeii..... there we met other groups and we were about 30 total walking thru Pompeii. We each had headsets so it was very easy hearing our guide....she was still excellant explaining all the ruins....quite good and a good sense of humor. Perfect time in December to go....very few people there.... one of the highlights of our trip

Very good five hours worth, including the Cathedral and some areas of downtown Naples together with a short drive to get a superb view of the city and its harbour, followed by a two hour tour of Pompeii, all excellently explained by our delightful guide Maria. It was a pleasure to have this virtually private tour in a comfortable minibus

Jam packed, but for only a few hours in France we got to experience a lot!! Pompeii was very cool and our tour guide, MariaLuisa was funny, friendly and keep everyone moving along. She was knowledgeable and made sure we saw the key points in Pompeii with an appropriate amount of free time in Nice. One of the best days on our trip. Thank her for us!!!
The only issue we had was with waiting to get on the bus on the return from Pompeii. We had planned for a free afternoon in Naples to eat pizza and we were rushed because of the delay in getting back.

Alfredo was our tour guide and he was awesome! Very personable and friendly...also very knowledgeable about the history of the city and monuments. Pompeii was a good hike around the massive city and great history to learn about. We did get a taste of the fabulous lemoncello and amazing lemonade!
