Read what other Viator.com travelers think about the Naples Shore Excursion: Pompeii Half-day Trip from Naples. What they loved, what they liked and what they think could be improved, it's all here to help you make the most of your next trip.
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!
This was one of the highlights of our vacation. The tour was facinating. The tour guide was knowledgable and entertaining. Bravo!
Everything about our day was great. Met at the port and transferred to our coach we had a good escort to Pompeii. We were guided around Pompeii by Andreas an interesting and informative guide. He gave us a great insight into the life of the town. Andreas was very knowledgable and had a good sense of humour engaging with all of the party. All in all this was a great choice and we would highly recommend this excursion.in fact everything we have booked via viator has been great. Thank you.
Loved the tour! Pompeii is Huge! Without a guide you would be, lost, confused and frustrated! Our guide was great and brought the city to life...after 2000 years of "sleep", highly recommend
We were collected at the cruise port. All the tours to Pompeii either half or full day are collected here then marshalled over to the coaches. On arrival at Pompeii we were split into our separate tours, some half day some full day and off we went. We chose the half day and were returned to the port later by taxi. Very convenient. Andrea our guide was really knowledgeable and funny. He made us laugh a lot. Very descriptive information about the people of Pompeii. Thank you.
This was also a great excursion. Easy to find our tour guide and well worth it!
We came by cruise liner and were met at the terminal as promised on time with my name clearly displayed. The tour guide for Pompeii, we think his name was Antonio, was excellent. He had a very good and clear command of the english language, with an in depth knowledge of Pompeii spiced with plenty of humour. Good value for money, certainly compared to the on-board excursion price.
