Well worth going to. Unfortunately the day we went the weather was extremely hot and made the experience less enjoyable. Be preparded with plenty of water and even an umbrella for shade, as there is none on the tour. Guide was informative and explained things well for us to understand.
We had a great experience. Unfortunately underground chambers were closed due to heavy rain. The tour guide was fantastic.
WOW!. Our tour guide was FANTASTIC Andre. He was extremely thorough and funny. He held everyone's interest. No regrets! My only suggestion is that Viator provide clear instruction as to exactly wear to meet our tour guide.
Our tour guide met us with no problem at the pier. We took a large bus for the 40 minute ride to Pompeii from Naples, which thankfully was air conditioned as it was extremely hot that day, 97 F. Our guide was extremely knowledgeable and provided a really good background and explanation for the site. It was easy to hear him using the audio devices provided. He was also very considerate given the extreme heat and made sure everyone had plenty of time to refill water bottles at all of the Pompeii fountains. This was a 4 hour tour which got us back to Naples in the early afternoon so we could enjoy a lunch of the pizza for which Naples is famous.
This was the first time we used Viator, our tour guide was terrific and since our kids didn't need to pay an entrance fee Viator refunded the cost of the entrance fee. All in all a terrific experience!
Our trip with Viator to Pompeii was great. There was very little waiting once we arrived before we could enter Pompeii. It was definitely worth the money and far cheaper than similar tours offered by our cruise line. This was our first time choosing to use Viator, but I would use them again. The only thing I would suggest is letting participants know in advance where the representative will be standing or having the company's reps to ear Viator's website colors orange and blue. We disembarked and there were several groups forming. Our last name was on a sign, but it was a small 8 1/2 x 11 sheet of paper. Also, since many ports on cruises have the excursion person right there when you exit the ship, it would have been nice to know in advance that we would be exiting the ship, going through a building, and then finding our rep. Other than the logistics, the tour was excellent and our guide took great care of our group. We were on time back to the ship. I would definitely use Viator again.
Great tour! We only had a half a day and this tour gave us a wonderful overview if the city of Pompeii.
Recommended. Good pace, thorough. All the sights and info you could ask for... You have to take this tour...
great experience! our guide was knowledgeable and accommodating and very patient. she made our experience to pompeii amazing!
This was a great tour. I learned so much about Pompeii and the guide always kept it interesting and not dull.
The guide was incredibly knowledgable. He was able to expand on nearly every question I had beyond pompeii.
Excellent tour. May have been the best tour we took. Young lady who was our tour guide was very knowledgeable and made the tour very interesting. Five stars.
Excellent, guide very informative, we had always wanted to see Pompeii, it was amazing. Would use your company
again and will recommend to other people. Thank you very much.
VERY VERY INFORMATIVE! !! THE guide was extremely knowledgeable. This tour is a lot of walking but you learn a lot about the past.
Guide was knowledgeable, entertaining, and made the tour memorable for our family of 8.
A very enjoyable tour from the ship. Length just enough to satisfy curiosity without becoming too intense with history and detail. Lots of entertaining information. Glad we went.
Highly recommended- 5 stars are not enough. Be prepared not to see much in the way of frescoes, paintings, mosaics or body casts, because most of them have been removed to museums for preservation. Nonetheless, this tour is highly informative and enjoyable, and I will add my 2 cents to the chorus of previous posters: GUIDE ANDRE IS THE BEST!!!! ASK FOR HIM IF YOU CAN!
