We really enjoyed our Pompeii tour with Andrea. He was everything a guide should be -- organized, knowledgeable, funny and patient. We did a day trip from Rome (via train to Naples) and were back in Rome before 4pm. I'm glad we did this!
Brilliant tour, Sabine was our tour guide and was so knowledgable and really brought to life the history of Pompeii, we got a real feel of how it would have been to have lived during those times. Would recommend this tour without hesitation, money well spent!
Really interesting and informative. Small group, which was nice and the guide Maria Louisa knew the best ways to avoid the crowds. She also could point of things that perhaps other guides might not. The whole thing ran very smoothly. Guide was there to greet us when we arrived off the ship and we were taken back at the appointed time. If I had realised, I would have booked another 1/2 day (Sorrento) as Naples was 'under construction' so not so great for sightseeing. Well worth booking this tour!
The tour was very good. Our guide Maria Luisa was excellent. She gave us lot of information about Pompeii life. If you like history, you must do this tour.
Interesting and entertaining! Made to feel like a guest with the personalized attentions and tour content.
Hi, initially I had doubts that a three hour tour through Pompeii wasn't enough but I've changed my mind. It gave us an insight into this famous place and with our guide's (?Andreas) entertaining commentary was a very enjoyable and informative experience, never to be forgotten. Thanks for your smooth and seemingly effortless transfer. I have one suggestion. Could the handing out of audio equipment be dealt with already in the coach and then just checked once over at the destination? Also, I've written to you using the appropriate website regarding my camera case which I had left on the coach to Pompeii. It was a sentimental item and therefore very dear to me.. I never had a reply even though you promise to reply within 36 hours.
This tour was great. Very informative!
I would recommend this with the following information...
Things I wish I knew first:
You only see two of the people who were preserved in the eruption.
More can be seen at the museums apparently so make time for this. We didn't because we were unaware and I'm still very annoyed!
The group was too large
Once again, the lack of bodies! Because that's what makes this place so cool and there are only two to be seen! DISAPPOINTING! :(
My Wife and I both enjoyed the Half-Day Tour of Pompeii from Naples. We were only going to be in Naples for an overnight visit and needed to return to Fiumicino Airport the next evening to catch our early morning flight the following day. We were very glad to find your website and happy that we were able to use it to schedule a tour for the next day.
We appreciated the fact that we could be picked-up by bus in front of our hotel, especially so as we were able to load our luggage on the bus and get dropped off afterwards at the Napoli train station to catch our trains back to Rome and the airport.
There was some minor confusion w/the driver about our names, but he eventually realized we were supposed to board the bus for the tour. We weren't able to print our tour reservation info at the hotel and I strongly recommend having a copy for the driver.
Our tour guide was very knowledgeable, friendly and courteous. Due to the hot weather we found the half-day tour to be just about the right length, especially w/all of the other tourists in Pompeii.
We highly recommend Viator and will definitely plan on checking w/Viator for any future trips. Fair prices, short notice availability, courteous staff and knowledgeable tour guides. Great overall service.
Amazing!!! Beautifual to have experienced a part of history. The tour guide was very friendly and informative. Definitely a must for any traveller.
Great tour guide. Picked us up from the cruise port. Maria did a great job!
We enjoyed the tour very much. Andrea, our tour guide, is knowledgeable about the history and has a good sense of humour. With him, history is not boring!
Beyond amazing. We thought it might be too short a time, but 2 hours at Pompeii was just right and it is such a difference seeing a full city preserved (rather than just a few corners as is the case nearly everywhere else). You can begin to imagine how daily life was like for ordinary citizens. Our teenagers loved this one too - fascinating.
