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!!

The tour was very interesting. The tour guide was very funny and knowledgeable.
The private tour after Pompeii for Amalfi and Positano was great. Our driver was excellent.
I think it's the best way to discover the area without losing time stopping at ceramic factories and shops.

We had a few hours to kill while waiting for our Train, so we booked the tour which picked us up and dropped off at the train station, Tour Guide again was great and we wouldn't of learned as much on our own. The Tour was assume
This tour was so well organised. We found the place to be picked up with ease. The taxi was comfortable and had air conditioning. And our guide was marvelous. He obviously knew a great deal about Pompeii and he delivered it with flair and humour. We just did the morning tour of Pompeii and that was enough walking for me.
My guide Maria, was amazing! She was very knowledgeable and had a great personality. She was charming, enthusiastic, had great energy. She kept the tour interesting and moving along a good pace, but also stopped at good places to provide great details about Pompeii. She really takes pride in her work!
This was a great experience! We were picked up at our designated meeting point by our guide Andrea. He was delightful! He had a vast knowledge of history and was both very informative and funny. A hilight of our 3 week visit to Italy. Well worth doing.
