This was posssibly the highlight of our stay in Italy. We were looked after from the moment we turned up for the tour. The guides were wonderful and attentive. The Pompeii tour with a local guide was clear and easy to follow. The views from the top of Mt Vesuvius were brilliant and made up for the 20min hike to the top. I would recommend this trip.
Gio, our Venezuelan guide, was outstanding. She kept us organized and on track, and went out of her way to give us great advice about exploring Rome.
-The bus driver (Aldo) was less than pleasant.
-The restaurant we were taken to was very mediocre. The portion size of pizza and salad was small and the service was average at best. I would prefer that they simply gave you a window of time to eat and get back to the bus, and let you find your own food.
We loved Willy our tour guide in Pompeii, and Valentina our guide from Rome to Pompeii! The trip was everything we expected and more. The ruins were much more extensive, and some parts better preserved than we had imagined. It was an experience that we can now check off our bucket list.
Fantastic day trip! We all enjoyed the day very much. Our guides were fantastic and they gave us lots of information throughout the day. Pompeii was amazing. Mt Vesuvius was a hard walk but very rewarding and well worth it. Our 12 year old son really enjoyed the trip. Overall it was a really great day!!!
Massimo and Stephanie were wonderful guides. They were very knowledgable, professional, funny, friendly, and accommodating. We will definitely ask for them by name when booking future tours to ensure we get the best guides.
Excellent experience and very good tour guides especially Sara. Weather conditions were bad and we could not hike vesuvius but the archaeological museum was a good alternative.
Superb day and definitely, definitely doable from Rome. It was an early start but the coach stops after an hour for a toilet break and so you can get a coffee and some breakfast and you're back in Rome in time for an evening out. Pompeii was amazing and the local guide there was brilliant, very informative and funny too. The drive up to Vesuvius was an experience! Great day out and a nice break from Rome sight-seeing if you have teenagers in tow. Would heartily recommend.
Great trip. Guides were helpful and pleasant. A "don't miss" trip.
The day trip to Pompeii was great and the tour guides Sara and Giovanna were fantastic, engaging and very informative. We had to make a call to Peugeot Leasing and Sara allowed us to use her phone, as we had only got into Rome the day before and had not had the opportunity to organise mobile phones. I would thoroughly recommend this tour. Tricia, Mark, Liam and Sophie. Adelaide South Australia
This was a great trip and the two young ladies who were our guides were extremely knowledgeable, informative and kept us amused on what is a fairly long day. The coach was good and the driver very good.
We took two Viator tours, one to the Colosseum and one to Pompeii. both tour guides were extremely knowledgeable and clearly loved their jobs! The trip to Pompeii is long, but not boring and the bus is comfortable. The guide shared knowledge of the beautiful countryside and about Italy in general, which we appreciated. There is a stop about 1/2 way at a nice, clean rest stop and lunch is included. We were scheduled to go to Mt. Vesuvius, but heavy rain closed the national park, so we ended up in the museum in nearby Naples where they have all the artifacts removed from Pompeii. We totally enjoyed seeing this, so we didn't feel cheated at all and the rain stopped in time to see Pompeii, which was awesome and fascinating! We highly recommend this tour!
The guide was outstanding, funny, and could answer any question.
Wow, what a fantastic day! Although a long day it didn't feel like it as there was plenty of time to rest on the coach. Our driver reported a problem with the vehicle and stopped to check it a few times. It was decided to swap over vehicles at some point, which was done when we were looking at Pompeii. The driver took time to remove any belongings that people had left on board and these where handed back on the new coach and drivers also swapped. Our original driver met up with us later to check that we were all happy, he had been very worried about the disruption. We also had to switch our days itinerary around, so did Pompeii in the morning and Vesuvius in the afternoon, this meant our guides for Pompeii being changed to one instead of 2. However, this did not effect our tour at all. The replacement guide was so full of information and all delivered with humour, he was fantastic!
The delay in changing vehicles meant that we were late to the base of Vesuvius, but guide, Massimo played his charm and got us in! Amazing climb up to the top of the crater, you need to be fit for this one!
Our two guides, Lucia and Massimo were far beyond our expectations, I have no idea how they could improve. They gave so much throughout the day and went beyond out tour itinerary to give advice on all things Rome! The depth of their knowledge was outstanding, I would, if I could hire them to be personal guides if this where possible, I cannot rate them highly enough! I would come back to this tour company again, just in the hope of getting these two guides again, a fantastic advert for your company, keep them!
