Excellent , interesting day- met all my expectations. Appreciated lunch included.
We totally enjoyed this day of walking in the middle of history. It is a lot of walking (which they warn you of) and a long bus ride from Rome but the scenery was worth it (saw the Appian Way). Our tour guide was really good and knew his stuff (along with speaking four languages....impressive). He knew some great stories and made the tour interesting. All the effort it took to climb steep stairs and hop across huge rocks that the Romans called streets was well worth it. You can literally feel a chill down your spine viewing the remains of some of the residents of Pompeii and imagining what happened when Vesuvius poured its wrath down on this city.
Our tour was excellent. We picked up a tour guide in Naples and he was excellent and knowledgeable especially in Pompeii. The only negative was that we breezed through Naples with only a quick photo stop. But... if you are mostly there to see Pompeii, the tour was great.
Excellent from start to finish,,,,,,,,,, our tour guide might have been of an age, but he was so informative, and helpful. Also a comedian as well.
The trip was perfect in every way. I have recommended Viator to others!
I enjoyed the trip very much and would recommend as a day trip. There is lots to see from the bus on the way to Pompei . The guide for Pompei tour who is from Napoli and also a bee keeper( I apologize, but I cannot recall his name) was excellent.
The Naples and Pompeii Day trip was pleasant. The lunch provided was excellent. My only complaint was since we did not schedule through a hotel (we stayed in an apartment) they just dumped us off at the end of the tour. We thought we would return to the Rome location however that was not the case. Other than that I would recomment this day trip as a must do.
Pompeii was amazing! I recommend to take this tour, really worth visiting. The local guide was really good, enjoyed every minute spend there :))
This was a good tour with a good tour guide of Naples and Pompey. We also saw from the highway some interesting sites like the Monte Casino Monastery and other interesting towns. Naples does not take much time to see the highlights and the two hours in Pompeii, we all agreed was about right. Very interesting, but all we talked to thought that with a good guide, two hours was about right.
I have only one gripe and that is the tour company's original bus from Rome had no legroom for normal sized males. I noticed that with all the couples, the man ended up moving to the aisle seat so he could put his legs in the aisle. Very uncomfortable. Our bus broke down (which happens) and the one out of Naples that replaced our bus was much more comfortable, but that original bus out of Rome was the most uncomfortable tour bus we were on in Italy. Otherwise this makes a great side trip from Rome.
This was a great time....but it took all day....bring your own water or drinks and snacks as the bus will stop at two very expensive 7/11 type stores and it is very highly priced....wonderful time in Pompeii though...our tour guide was awesome!
This tour was a highlight of my visit to Rome - the Bay of Naples is beautiful, and wandering the site of Pompeii was a lesson in history. Both guides (Mara all day, Vittorio in Pompeii) were informative, approachable and helpful. This is a long tour (about 13 hours in total) but the day just flew by! Lunch, which was included (except drinks), was fresh and delicious, and there was plenty of it - too much!! 2 hours in Pompeii was perfect - we weren't rushed, and saw/learned all that we needed to - I would definitely recommend this tour.
Magnificient tour. The arrangement and organisation of the guided tour was one of the best. Enjoyed very well.
