Tour was amazing. Our tour was in December 14. We were picked up right on time by the driver and guide and as it was off season; myself, my husband and two children were the only ones on the tour. We were at Pompeii 2+ hours and saw a huge amount. The guide was very knowledgeable.
This was an amazing tour with a small group. The tour gude was engaging and knowledgable and took us to key areas that would have been difficult for us to find in the short time we had available! I wouldn't have changed anything about this experience!!!
Our tour guide was exceptional. He was informative, funny and spoke English very well. The pace was enjoyable. Everyone was able to keep with him and had plenty of opportunity to ask questions/comment. We highly recommend this tour to anyone young and old.

We were very impressed with Viatour in general, and this tour in particular. This was the first time we used this service , we were picked up promptly at the designated hotel in a clean air conditioned bus with approximately 30 other travelers. The guides were very professional and organized, moving us quickly through the entrance ticketing and into the grounds of Pompeii. Our guide Andrea, was outstanding, with his personality and historical knowledge. As senior travelers, his pace was perfect, the length of the tour was just enough for us to see everything. We were returned to Naples on time, overall, this tour exceeded our expectations. We highly recommend this tour.
this tour was great and our guide extra informative. could not have been better and was everything i expected and more.highly recommend this tour.
Comfortable, reliable transportation. Wonderful guide that really made the place come alive. Possible our most favorite of all the tours we went on in Italy.
Very good tour the guide was relaxed which made our experience much better. Excellent tour.
Our guide was excellent, providing a comprehensive and informed commentary, and made the walking experience most enjoyable and rewarding. We saw an extensive amount of the ruins, without being hurried and our guide mixed his information with good humour, making it a great experience for our whole group.
Tour was good and great place to visit. The guide was good and entertaining. He showed us around the fantastic Pompeii ruins nicely.
There was half an hour delay at the end, as one tour tourist was "lost" - so better organisation needed. But overall, would definitely recommend.
It was excellent. Guide was very knowledgeable.
Enjoyed it very much. Thankyou.
Absolute fabulous. Our guide was amazing - full of information and anecdotes. He really knew his stuff.
The tour was very interesting, well organized, carried out according to the schedule - and the guide was very good.
A great tour,Highly Recommended, next time I travel I will be using the Viator Tour again. Every body was very nice and always on time.
Excellent tour! The tour guide was very informative and funny.
We travelled down from Rome and as per instructions were picked up outside the Star Hotel entrance on time. We knew that Pompeii was a large city but once you're there the vastness is quite astounding!! There is no way we could have done it justice on our own.......it's too big! This tour does not cover the entire city but it will give you a "taste" of Pompeii. Our tour guide was Susie and she was very knowledgeable.
As previous reviews it is vital that you wear comfortable shoes and take plenty of water (we visited in August) the heat is unrelenting! We highly recommend this tour, it was worth every penny!
Wonderful tour our guide was amazing. Very organized and would recommend it to my friends. Half day was enough to see the things we wanted to see.
Our guide was fantastic, and the tour was worth every penny. I highly recommend it.
The Tour Guide was very knoledgeable and spoke clearly in English. The drive and vehicle was very comfortable ( even on Naples city roads!)
This was an excellent tour. The guide was so knowledgable and very passionate about the history.
My husband and I really enjoyed the tour! We could tell the your guide loved history. He was knowledgable and funny making the tour that much more entertaining. The shuttle bus they picked us up in was spacious with air conditioning which was amazing because of the heat outside.
Susie our guide was great. It was a very rushed half day tour, but she kept everyone moving and made sure we knew what was going on via wireless headset. She would first explain in English and the let us walk around and take pictures while she translated for a french couple on our guide. I will admit that a half day is a bit rushed, but Pompeii is worth a visit at least one. The idea that this ancient Roman city had roads, indoor plumbing, bars and public baths is amazing. The kids were definitely impressed. Finally, Susie and the other staff kept counting and recounting and made sure everyone knew where they were going and accounted for. They were a very efficient operation, but very courteous as well.
Tour was excellent from beginning to end. Male guide at Pompeii was not only very knowledgeable and ensured everyone was well informed, he was amusing also!!
We had a good time. Interesting trip with a very good and engaged guide on the tour to Pompeii.
