This was our favourite tour of all the day tours we did. The location was fabulous, with the walk up Mount Vesuvius definitely our favourite part. The view was incredible after the walk up and our tour leaders were both fun and very informative. They definitely made this such a fun and fantastic day trip. Pompeii was great and our local tour leader was good as well, and although someone in our day trip was sent to hospital with a broken leg, the way the leaders handled the situation was certainly a credit to them both, with them taking care of both the group and the hurt lady. This was the highlight of our whole Europe trip.
This was an amazing trip. It takes the entire day but is totally worth your time. The bus you take is comfortable/air conditioned. Climbing Mt. Vesuvius was incredible. It's about a 40 minute walk to the top with amazing views of the Bay of Naples. The guided tour of Pompeii was also incredible. This was one of my favorite tours that we did while staying in Rome. Our guides, Geo and Daniel, were very knowledgeable and enthusiastic. Highly recommend it!!
The tour was great. Bus was comfortable, guides were good, pizza was good as well (was skeptical, but turned out better than planned). I didn't want to do shopping for souveniers, but I know others did, and the only place we really had time to do that was at a pit stop in Casino. The place had everything but just felt a bit too touristy. Pompeii and Vesuvios was a great experience, but doing a day trip was a lot of travelling for the amount of experience you get. In hindsight, I would have sacrificed a night or two in Rome and stayed in Naples.
A fabulous tour, the guide was fantastic, Highly recommend this tour
Sarah and Roberto were fabulous. They complemented one another. They made the trip fun and enjoyable and imparted lots of interesting information. How they can remember it all, I don't know. Enrique also gave an invaluable insight into the history of Pompeii. All in all, an enjoyable day.
Seriana and Sarah were terrific guides! They provided a lot of interesting information while we were on the bus and they were very good about keeping the tour on schedule. We thought the entire thing was well organized and we would use viator again.
We would highly recommend this tour, the local tour guides and the tour directors were all very knowledgeable and friendly. Although its a long day, its well worth the effort.
Awesome tour! The guides were so friendly and knowledgeable, the bus was comfy and Pompeii was amazing.
Our tour was absolutely incredible! We could not believe that we were actually in the place where it all happened. It was the best tour on our entire trip. Roberto was a wonderful guide. He spoke excellent English, he knew everything about Pompeii, and he was so friendly. He did everything he could to make our tour the best it could be. The trip was well organized. The bus was comfortable and the trip to Pompeii was a pleasure as Roberto told us so much history, not only about Pompeii, but about Rome also. He answered all of our questions. If you want to go to Pompeii, this is the tour you want to be on!
My wife and I took this tour and boy are we glad we did. It was a long day with an early start but our tour guide Robert was excellent, extremely knowledgable but made sure it wasn't boring. The lunch supplied was excellent with 3 different types of pizza available with beer, wine or soft drinks. The local guide at Pompeii Lina was also excellent and made the stroll around Pompeii great fun filled with useful facts and information. Our driver Mary Elena did a sterling job all day getting us safely up the very treacherous roads up Mount Vesuvius and getting us safely back to Rome in good time. The whole day was a great experience and worth every penny!
All the arrangements were perfect and the tour guides were outstanding.
The tour guide Robbie was phenomenal. He made the tour interesting, fun and memorable. I only wish that he could have been the tour guide for all the tours. The bus driver, Marilana was a very skilled driver and needs a huge pat on the back for her superb driving skills. I would recommend the tour as it was a once in a lifetime experience to climb an active volcano. The ruins of Pompeii were fascinating to see and well worth a visit.
