What a great way to see Pompeii from Rome. We took the 70 minute high speed train from Rome to Naples and were picked up at the Terminal. We left Rome at 8:45 and was back before 16:00. It could not have been easier. Our guide Andrea was fantastic! He was knowledgable, articulate, humorous, and passonate. He was a great teacher. He also was very patient in handling an irritating couple, an American lawyer and his wife, who thought they were funny.
Excellent guide who 'made' the tour for us as he was very amusing as well as informative.
Excellent tour with a very knowledgeable guide, provided great background as well fun explanation of the city.
Amazing once you are there to realise just how big the ancient city must have been.
The tour guide was wondering. The experience was great. My train from Rome to Naples was a bit late by 15 minutes and they waited for me outside the station.
From now on for any tour outside North America I will first contact viator.
Pompeii is a place where you pay for a ticket and walk in, I would have been hopeless without this tour. I think the guide knew more about the history than the people employed on site! He knew intricate details about why things were built the way they were and how people lived. I loved it.
Excellent tour! Our tour guide was very knowable and very friendly. He had no problems with speaking English. We felt like we really got ours money's worth!!! They even took us back to the hotel to pick up our bags and take us to the train station after the tour.
I cannot remember our tour guides name but he was awesome! We were picked up right from our hotel and dropped off which was great! And the guide was very knowledgable and kept things very enthusiastic and interesting. Highly recommended. I absolutely loved this tour!
The Pompeii trip was excellent. Aviator is totally trustworthy and high quality as the bus tour guide picked us up at our specific spot in Naples right on time. We had a superb tour guide who spoke very good English. His command of the subject matter was terrific. I would recommend this tour to anyone wanting to see Pompeii.,
Good tour, wonderful guide, knowledgeable and entertaining. Wish I would have visited Vesuvius as well.
We had wondered how we were going to get to a '"hotel pick up" from our Cruise Ship, but a phone call a week ahead was all it took to arrange to be met at the terminal. The guice was knowledgable and spoke good English, and had a wonderful sense of humour. You can't imagine my pleasure when I played my little soprano recorder in the Theatre of Pompei, to spontaneous applause from several tour groups who had gathered!
Our tourguide,the guy who led us thru the ruines of Pompeii was very good,knowledgeable and had a very entertaining way to explain history. A big cheers for him. I;m not sure but I think his name was Mario ??
After I missed the hotel pickup, the rep at the Naples office was extremely helpful getting me to a place a block away to wait for the bus! Admit I was a little worried, but they came and spotted me immediately even tho I was waiting at a public bus stop with about 25 other people. Tour was great, very organized, and the guide was extremely knowledgeable about Pompeii. Also had a great personality so he kept it interesting throughout. I would definitely do other Viator tours in the future.
We picked up the tour at a hotel near the Naples train station following a trip by train to Naples. The tour guide was excellent - he had a sense of history and a sense of humor. He was able to bring Roman life in Pompeii to light. It's too bad that so many of the artifacts of Pompeii are not at the site, but at the museum in Naples. Perhaps, this tour should include the Naples museum as well.
Amazing tour with kindly people. High professional level. Everything as scheduled.
Tour was great, got an excellent overview of Pompeii from a knowledgeable guide. Our guide had worked for two years in restoring Pompeii so she was very familiar with the site. Even though it was raining and a miserable day when we went, our guide made the tour fun and very worthwhile. Our guide knew lots of hidden secrets about Pompeii that you wouldn't get just walking around by yourself. It was a little hard to hear the guide, so make sure you stay close.
The guide Andre was fabulous. it is our first experience of a group tour and we were not sure if we would like it. he was entertaining and very informed about the history of the site. Not sure how you pay him but he is worth every bit and a lot more.
This was a great trip. Very well organised,prompt pick up from hotel. Fantastic guide on the day,would definitely recommend the half day trip it was very enjoyable+educational.
The trip was great! we were picked up promptly at the agreed time and place with a very comfortable minibus and a nice driver. The tour of Pompei was guided by a very talented guide with a lot of knowledge about the ancient roman history. Thanks to this guide, Andrea, Pompei came completely alive! it was a great experience.
Fantastic tour. Very efficient. Great guide. All of our expectations were met and exceeeded. Thank you.
My trip to Pompeii was great. My host of the tour was very informative and polite. She knew the entire Pompeii site...
