Excellent trip the highlight of our holiday.
Our guides Andy and Antionia were brilliant they were very knowledgeable the information was flowing out of them .
Best history lesson we have ever had.
Great value for money .
Bus driver was a lovely man and a great driver.

I would have liked to have seen the Pompeii nation museum as well. Guides were great and knowledgeable.
It will be nice to have less time at the restaurant in order to have more time in Pompeii
We were lead by Melony with a shared bus - two tour groups both doing the same tour. Well organized pick-up with a small walk to the bus. Melony was awesome, lovely, and extremely passionate about sharing her knowledge. A few laugh along the way, we had an awesome day-trip.
The day was awesome. Perfect weather all the way. The two tour leads shared the commentary through Rome to the comfort-stop at Cassino. The bus driver showed the world how to go up the single-lane Vesuvius 'goat track' and we were in very safe hands.
Off at the top and we had 1 1/4 hours to climb up to the top - ample time for most fitness levels.
After Vesuvius was lunch - pizza and drink. Perfect. Then off to Pompeii for a guided-tour by the local expert. Very informative and a good speed - not too slow!
A nice drive home through the beautiful countryside and we even got restaurant tips before arriving back in Rome around 20:15.
So so so recommended! Thanks Mel.
What a fantastic experience! Our guides Claudia and Robert had so much passion for Pompeii and Mt Vesuvius that it made our group even more excited about the trip. I was amazed at how big Pompeii actually is and how much has survived for so long. You could be there a whole day and still not get to see everything. The walk up Mt Vesuvius was no walk in the park, but the beautiful views of the crater as well as the land and sea below make it totally worth while. It was an enjoyable day from start to finish.
It was very entertaining - funny and informative. Andy was a star of a day with funtastic sense of humor put thru everything he was talking about. I liked that both guiedes were very attentive to your needs, ie answering questions about Rome not really related to our tour. Definitly worth it and will use City Wanders again next time in Rome. Oh, will never forget Antonio - the driver, 5 starts for him too lol
We thoroughly enjoyed the day. The guides - Rick and Andy - were informative and fun to be with. Our Pompeii guide Carla was also very good. I would highly recommend this trip if you have an extra day while in Rome. We were leary of the long bus ride but it wasn't bad and we learned lots of tips and interesting information along the way. We'd read that the hike was strenuous and while it was, it was worth it for the beautiful view.
If a review is required I am going to stop reviewing for you. For this time the trip was 5 star but Viator is 2 star because of the continuing harassment to write reviews. I go on a trip for my own reasons. If a review is required I should be paid for it.
The guides were very knowledgeable and took what would could have been a long boring day with many bus rides into the most informative day of our time in Rome. Climbing Mt Vesuvius was a real hike with beautiful views from the top of the crater. Pompeii was vast and we had our own Pompeii guide once we got to the archaeological site. Wish I had booked more tours with City Wonders. Again, the tour guides made this amazing.
First class. Our guides on Saturday June 4th were the best. Interesting and amusing. The journey was comfortable and without hitches, and the lunch excellent. A trip to remember
Melanie was the best ! Made the bus ride go quick and gave us so much info along the way. Too many great things about this tour to pick just one. At the end my 11 yr old son said dad, thanks for booking this tour. How can you argue with that?
Outstanding trip. Roberto was an excellent, informative, entertaining, and caring guide. The hike up Mt Vesuvius is doable for anyone in reasonably good health. We saw young children and very elderly adults making the trek. Lunch was Ok in a place catering to high volume bus groups. Pompeii is a place not to be missed. It was our second time at the sight and we enjoyed it just as much this time, thanks to our local guide, Bernadette. Highly recommend this trip.
Dimitri and Roberto were wonderful and knowledgeable guides. The tour was well organized from start to finish. Our local guide at Pompeii, Enzo, was excellent too. I would highly recommend this tour.
This tour was amazing. It was my favourite tour I did while in Italy. The guides were very friendly and knowledgeable. The bus journey was very comfortable and our guides entertained us with intresting stories and facts. I would definitely recommend this tour.
This trip was the highlight of our vacation. Kierra was a fantastic guide! By the end of the day we considered her to be part of our family. She happily answered all questions and remained fun and enthusiastic throughout the day. Pompeii was incredible and fascinating ... a must-see if you have time
Excellent tour. Would highly recommend. The tour guide Alessandra was great, as was the local guide in Pompeii.
Really great tour. Our guide (Melanie) was very informative, and went way above and beyond, and lunch was delicious. We had a great time.
Had a great time exploring the city of Pompeii! The tour guide was very informative and funny. Hiking up Vesuvius was my favorite part of the trip, and the included lunch was very nice. Overall great tour, would use Viator again!
Chiana and Roberto were AMAZING! Not only were they VERY knowledgeable but they were also funny. They made my sister and I's trip to Pompeii memorable. I would HIGHLY recommend this trip!!!
Very well organised. Tour guides were wonderful fun and engaging people. Full for information and facts about our tour. Lunch good and pit stops for coffee/ food / toilets paced out well. Bus driver very good, felt sate on the road. Would highly recommend viator. Will use again later in the year.
