This was a great tour that allowed us to see many attractions in Italy in a short time, and relieved us of the hassle of arranging our own transportation and hotels if we had tried to plan it all ourselves. Our tour guide, Alessandro was OUTSTANDING. He was affable, entertaining, extremely helpful, and very well organized. When we arrived at our hotels, he had the room assignments already arranged and personally handed out the keys right as we arrived. It was nice to have some meals included at the hotels, although my only negative comment is that sometimes the hotel staff didn't appear to be prepared for us at meal time and we were missing some basic things. Overall we loved the tour.
The tour was well organised by Dark Rome tours. The two guides, Sarah and Mia were very informative and pleasant to be with. The guide that took us round Pompeii was very good and I would recomend him to future tours. Overall a very well organised and enjoyable day. Thank you.
The bus ride out to Mt. Vesuvilus with all the information given by Gia and Sara was terrific. Their knowledge and upbeat presentation kept most people on the ride awake and listening to their stories about the upcoming sights and history of the area. The climb to the top of the volcano was awesome as was the tour and guide of Pompeii. I would recommend this trip to anyone who wants to explore the outer regions of Rome and to see and hear from all guides, the unbelievable sights and history of the beginning orgins of our world. Great guides, if possible you want Sara and Gia. I have to give a heartfelt thank you to Gia as well. I left my camera on the bus and she found it after all had left. I called the tour office and to my surprise someone was still there at 7:30 pm. They located Gia at dinner near a Metro line that I could access. She waited there for me with my camera and I was so glad to get those pictures back from the day trip, Thank YOU so much. If you are ever in Montana near Glacier National Park, a tour is there for you.
Excellent day, Violet and Sarah were excellent guides and very helpful on the tour and general Rome info. Comfortable bus and very good driver.
Wow, what a day! Our guide, Sara and Gia gave us so much historical information both on the way to and from Pompeii. Vesuvius was absolutely stunning and Pompeii mind blowing. Nothing was too much trouble for the guides who left us with the most amazing memories. This is definitely the way to visit Italy! Thank you!
Nice and well organized tour. Comfortable bus and excellent guide. Recommended!
I think the highlight of this tour were both our tour leaders Gio and Roberto! They worked really well as a pair and we really enjoyed all the stories they shared. They were also very helpful in providing general Rome information like places to eat and off the beaten track sites to visit. The coach was a tad tight as we had quite a few "extra large" guests and as a result, was a little uncomfortable but nonetheless, the overall tour was still 5-star! Kudos to Dark Rome for investing in great guides, including the local guides at Pompei.
Excellent day trip from Rome. The Dark Rome guides were very knowledgeable and shared interesting stories during the bus rides. The local guide was also fantastic. I really like the use of headphones that it seems most tours have these days, no crowding around the guide straining to hear. Pompeii itself was great, and with the guide showing you things you'd miss on your own, and providing explanations, it made the experience. Would liked to have had maybe an hour to wander around (we got 15 minutes), but it was a long day as it was. The bus ride made it very relaxing and worry free.
The tour guides were great, full of history and made the trip even more enjoyable. This is a trip definitely worth taking!
Amazing tour! Our guide Roberto was fantastic! Although long the day was not too rushed. Must do day trip from Rome!
Fantastic tour. Well organised. Tour guides helpful, knowledgeable and made for a great day, filling us in with interesting info about the area and the local history - made the coach journey fly by. Would definitely recommend this tour - the tour guides made sure we saw the important bits and brought Pompeii to life.
