Amazing, wonderful full day of historical fun! Big thanks to Massimo our guide! What a dude. Very knowledgable and great fun. Flat sturdy shoes for the climb up Vesuvius. The first bit is hard but once you get to the top, it's worth it.
Highly recommend this tour. I think it was the best thing I did while in Rome. If it's a sunny blue sky day you HAVE to do this. So impressed with everything!!
Worked out really well. The guides and driver helped make the day. It was a 13 hour round trip but well worth it and not too much. We had 2 hours or so round Pompeii which was OK to see the main parts and more than get the feel of the place. You could spend a whole day there but considering the trip was from Rome and included Vesuvius it was a good agenda.
walking up Mount Vesuvius was a real thrill: the views, the clouds, the hugeness of it. Beautiful drive, the Bay of Naples is beautiful. Pompei very interesting.
Awesome. Our tour guides were extremely knowledgeable - not just about Pompeii but the entire area we travelled through to get there. They were humorous and very professional. They made the very lengthy excursion pass very quickly and enjoyable. Highly recommended.
Great and interesting tour of Pompeii, the best pizza I've ever eaten, and I can say I climbed an active volcano! Definitely worth the cost, which isn't expensive.
This was such a great day tour. The only disappointment was that the weather was a little cloudy, but climbing Vesuvius was still amazing. The tour of Pompeii showed all the highlights and the guide was really knowledgable.
outstanding trip-three very informative guides. this was very well done.
It would be hard to improve on this trip. Yes the day is long, but it was well planned and organized and the sites not to be missed. Accompanying Viator guides and local Pompeii guide were outstanding. One warning: The climb up Vesuvius can easily take longer than advertised.
Awesome tour from start to finish! We learned a great deal about the history, food/wine, people and geography of the area from our two professional tour guides Stefanie and Hector - Grazie! On site at Pompeii, Giorgio proudly echoed his Family roots as assistants to the archaeologists throughout the restorations. We really enjoyed the walk-through with him and this historical tour. All three guides have a wonderful sense of humour! Hector had us rolling in the bus aisles with his tips on crossing the streets in Rome, paying taxi fare/the drivers and ownership of our dinner table til we ask for the bill/how to ask for the bill if ignored. All could relate to what he was saying. Hilarious!
The pizza for lunch at Tiberious (included with tour) was frankly the best we ate while in Italy. It served us well for the Vesuvius climb! Grazie Antonnio for the amazing drive along some single lane hairpin curves up and down the mountain to the starting point of the climb. Phew! Spectacular view of the crater and the Gulf of Naples! Could even see the distant island of Capri.
It is a full day (7:30 a.m. to 8 p.m.) and we highly recommend this tour!

It was a great trip. Worth the money spent. The guides Anna and Antoinelle (hope I got the name right) - were outstanding:knowledgeable; very passionate ; cheerful till the end. Their trip gives you the right amount of time at the venues. The bus was comfortable and their (break) stops were just right (good places and comfortable times)
