Super long day but worth it. Pompeii is an amazing look into Roman life. This also included lunch which was good.
Very professional but not lacking that personal touch. Mara the guide on the coach kept everyone informed on points of interest and photo opportunities. Lunch was fine though a bit chaotic. Franco the guide for Pompeii was outstanding, informative, funny and thoroughly engaging, a pleasure to spend time in his company.
Pompeii tour was amazing. It is a long day , approx 12 hours but worth it. Naples was good to see from the bus as it is a famous city but it is an absolute dive of a place. Felt like it was a city in need of some desperate repair. Glad I saw Naples but never want to visit there again. Pompeii itself was wonderful. Didn't realise the scale of the place. Really good guide. Lunch included and it was ok. Wasn't the worst but wasn't the best. The only issue it that at Pompeii section was very rushed. Had no free time to look at souvenirs or book stores. We stooped at a "beach " in Naples. Didn't need to do this. There are a lot if nicer beacges
I really enjoyed this trip because the fellow travellers were really nice and decent folks from all over the world.
The tour guides were really passionate about the history of Pompeii.
The lunch provided was good.
Pompeii guide was fantastic. Naples part of tour was a little disappointing but since Pompeii was the real reason for going, everything was good.
Do not miss this! This was our favorite part of our trip and I would highly recommend it. It was a very tiring 14 hour day but well worth seeing. Our guides were excellent and kept us informed the whole trip on what was coming next. We were amazed at how well preserved Pompeii is and our guide was wonderful.
Very good tour. Tour was turned over to a local guide for Pompeii and he new just where to go to see the most. Another tour with a good lunch and well worth the money.
This was a great - but long - day out from Rome, starting with 'on the dot' pick up at a downtown hotel at 7 am and not getting back to my rental apartment until close to 10 pm. Our guide for the day Christina, was excellent and, when we reached Naples she handed us over to the local guide, Franco, who was quite a character and extremely well informed. He kept us on a tight schedule, with only two hours at the ruins, but I'm confident he made sure we saw the high points. Lunch was OK tourist fare without being spectacular. Be sure to take a hat, sunscreen and lots of water!
was very good thanks for christina the tour leader of the ground handler in agent in Rome, she speaks 4 languages and has very good knowledge, I strongly recommend that tour
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.
