This was one of the highlites of our cruise. The only negative was getting on the bus. The directions were not good but fortunately we had an Italian help us by calling the tour company. The pickup spot was excellent (right in front of the port entrance doors) but the directions to find it were not. Guide was very good.

Our experience was first class all the way. Our man (Andrei) met us at the ship and with only 6 other people, he took us thru the ruins of Pompeii and his knowledge and descriptions of the lives of the people made it all come alive. It was simply wonderful and it was the absolute highlight of our entire trip.

Fabulous!!!! Our guide was so knowledgeable. The number of people should have been less so we could hear more of the commentary. Pompeii should not be missed.

Excellent short trip. Guide was knowledgeable and kept our 7 year old interested around the site. Probably not a trip for those wishing to get a real in depth knowledge of the site as longer may be required, but totally met our requirements and expectations.

AWESOME! It was great. Our tour guide Andre was waiting for us as we left the ship with a sign with our name and he was fantastic. He was so intelligent and knowledgeable, funny, personable, and patient. Great tour guide and great tour.

This tour was absolutely fabulous. Highly recommended. Our tour guide was very knowledageable and entertaining. We enjoyed "Andrew". He was just excellent from begining to end. He was prompt at the pick up point and encourage the group to know each other. He walked us through Pompeii and his explanatory ways and demeanor was simply well done. He added that extra piece of information or anologies to help guide the crowd. We really enjoyed him and the this excursion overall. THANKS ANDREW!! and thanks to Viator for making this an inmemorable excursion day. I high recommend this tour if you are cruising and want to do a short 1/2 day trip at 50% cost compared to the Cruise Sponsored Excursion. We had time left over to enjoy a Margarite Pizza (Naples is the birth place of the Pizza). Andrew arranged for the driver to drop us of at his favorite and recommended Pizza Restaurant.

The visit to Pompeii was a wonderful experience and the tour via viator made it possible. The guide Andre is exceptional. We had 6 other tours this vacation and as good as the other tour guides were, Andre was the best: very knowledgeable, funny, and made sure that any questions were answered.
Maria the coordinator was pleasant but not as professional as Andre. At the end of the day, she exit to her train stop before the guests were dropped off at their final destinations. We were left trying to explain to the driver where our destinations were, in a foreign language.
Overall, a wonderful excursion still.

Our Pompeii tour was fabulous! Andre was a wonderful tour guide, he was very knowledgeable, enthusiastic and humorous. Pompeii has so much history -- it was destroyed in 79 A.D. when Mt. Vesuvius spewed volcanic ash over the entire City, burying it and its population. It's amazing that so much of the City has been excavated, and that tours such as yours are available for the public's education.
VIATOR was easy to contact (via phone); David was very helpful in arranging our tour. The mini-van was comfortable, and we traveled with a friendly group. I will use VIATOR in the future. Jo Ann Morton (Texas)
