Read what other Viator.com travelers think about the Naples and Pompeii Day Trip from Rome. What they loved, what they liked and what they think could be improved, it's all here to help you make the most of your next trip.
Naples was just a bus trip around the city to see some main sites and not worth much, but Pompeii was very interesting and about a 2 hour walk. Again, having been ill and not in shape now, I had a hard time stepping up about 18" at the end of the tour since some of the sites in Pompeii you had to step up for. Lots of rough walking for someone who is not in shape.
But the fascinating information for Pompeii is worth the tour for sure.
Great tour guy, George, an older man who has been doing this for years it seems and really knows his subject.
You will find Pompeii fascinating! Worth your time, folks!
We went to pompeii for the day, it was a brilliant experience. The tour guide was knowledgeable and friendly.
the dinner was ok but definately worth the trip!
The bus ride was "comfy",driver was great!...We absolutely LOVED Pompeii..Wish we could have spent more time there, rather than driving through Naples, and visiting the Cameo store. The Pompeii tour guide was knowledgeable and friendly..great job!

Be prepared for a long day. We were picked up early at our hotel (a bonus) and taken to the bus. This tour met my expectations. Our guide, Mara was very knowledgeable. She also has the ability to herd cats and keep the tour on track, and meet everyone's needs. At Pompeii, we had another guide with a very dry sense of humor. He was also good. Definitely worth taking the tour.
Best part of the trip. Pompeii was amazing!!! The tour was well worth it!!!
Tour guides were funny and not boring!!!

Amazing Trip! I love my overall experience! They picked and drop me off at my hotel. Sylvia was our bus tour guide from Rome to Naples and Pompeii. I fall in love with Pompeii the most! It is a must see place- Naples was just ok. We didn't do much there.
The whole trip was a great sucess, collected and dropped off on time. The guides Patrick and Franco where informative and had great sence of humour. Pompii was realy worth the trip from Rome, Franco knew his way around and was full of interesting facts and had a great way with people. Also the lunch provided was very good.
Definitely worth the drive on the bus. The bus company picks you up at your hotel and drops you back off after the tour. It is an all day tour but they provide you a very filling lunch and a nice restaurant. Your rest stops are at tourist stops where they try to sell you locally made items/jewelry but you don't need to buy anything. The tour in Pompeii has a decent amount of walking but it is manageable for all ages. The quick stop in Naples is nice. You only drive through Naples and you see some great spots but if we had more time I wish we could have walked around in Naples.
This was a very well planned trip with the necessary way stops and route guide comments. Our guide was very knowledgeable and enthusiastic and did a great job of herding the participants along. Everyone was helpful, and the hotel pickup and drop off was just icing on the cake. My daughter and I had a great visit and an educational experience.
It was an overall glorious experience. The guides were friendly, informative, entertaining, professional and accommodating. Learned a lot and came back with stories to tell. I would highly recommend your organization. Thanks!
A long trip but Pompeii has always been on my bucket list. And she did not disappoint. Pompeii was everything I expected and more. Our guide was informative and kept us intrigued through out the entire tour. The stop at Naples was short and sweet but that was ok by me. We went in winter and if we go back in summer we will stop there to visit the islands instead.
This is a long day trip but once you get there the ruins of Pompeii are amazing.
My wife and I took this tour and it was great! We were picked up at our hotel and the tour guide was excellent. She explained things along the way and we always felt safe. We picked up another guide in Naples (Nando) and he was awesome as well. The tour moved at a comfortable pace and we were able to see everything that we wanted. This was our only tour while in Italy and we had a great time.
Great trip, Mara was an excellent tour guide as was Franco. Prepare yourself for a long day. Pick up was very early but stop at rest area for food and bevearges each way was nice break.
Loved this tour! My complaints are the ride in the mini bus in the morning from my hotel was very uncomfortable, I had to be picked up at 6:30am. When we were finished with the tour and at the last rest stop before entering Rome the guide told me I was going to be the last person dropped off because my hotel was closer to the airport vs. in Rome itself like all the other passengers. She also made me feel like it was out of the way for the bus driver and asked me if I wanted to do a Rome by night tour that night, take a taxi, etc. I started my day at 5:30am all I wanted to do was get back to my hotel. I got nervous at one point when it was just me and the bus driver because he went a "back way" to get to my hotel not the way the hotel's shuttle bus always took when going there from Rome. All was fine but I think you should know this if you stay at a property not in central Rome. If Viator does not want to pick folks up that are not in central Rome, tell us we need to find our own way to a central meeting point and take money off the price to allow us to do this. My guide in Pompeii was fantastic!! The restaurant in Pompeii where we all had lunch was great and having some time for ourselves to see the city of Pompeii was greatly appreciated. I would have liked a little time in Naples but the bus tour thru it was very informative, I would like to go back to Naples and spend some time there. The bus was very nice, clean and the driver was very safe. I really appreciated having the tour of the ruins of Pompeii done in just one language, vs. 2 like when on the bus itself. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone wanting to see Pompeii, mentioning Naples is a bit of a tease since you don't get to do anything there but go to the waterside for a few mins to take some photos and a hurried tour of the city via bus before dropping off the folks taking the tour to Capri.
This was my third trip to Pompeii and I was still pleased that I took the trip. The guide was very knowledgeable. I highly recommend Greenline Tours, the local tour guide associated with Viatour
Pompeii is amazing and so very well worth visiting. The tour itself was well organised and the guides were very well informed too.
This tour is so worth it!!!
Esp. we are first timers in this place. The tour guide are very accomodating and very informative.
To top it all....lunch is included int his tour.....its a full course lunch...from the appetizer, main course and dessert. With the price we paid for, ITS ALL WORTH IT....From beginning to the end of the tour!!!
Excellent tour of Pompeii. Would like to have spent more time at the site. Could have foregone the 10 minutes in Naples as it was a waste of time, especially as there was road rebuilding going on at the time. Our guide Wilma was very knowledgeable and had a pleasant manner.
The tour to Pompeii was very good. We got picked up from the hotel and brought back which was greatly appreciated. The multi-lingual guide for the bus was very good as well as the second guide inside the Pompeii ruins. Lunch was at a pleasant restaurant and the food was good. I particularly like historic places and ruins so I loved the experience. I would have liked to have more time to look and linger in some areas, but I understand that the number of visitors is so high that things have to keep moving. I would have appreciated a longer time in the ruins to savor and photograph more.
