Very efficient and painless way to see Pompeii.
Rather than take the guided tour (which requires an up charge), we'd downloaded an audio guide. We wished we'd taken the tour. We spent a lot of time being lost, while the folks who took the tour, loved it.
Pompeii was amazing. Yes, it was a long drive from Rome, but it was worth every minute of it. We had a guide on the bus to Pompeii, she was helpful, however, she talked on the cell phone almost the whole trip from Rome to Pompeii. It became somehow annoying because she was quite loud. I understand her job was to ensure we get there safely and hand us over to the local guide, but...
BTW, the local guide was fantastic, his name is Francesco, I have made remarks on Tripadviser...
I chose the independent day tour and loved every minute. If you're like me and don't want to be rushed site to next site then you'll like to do the tour yourself. The negative is you might get lost in Pompeii and have to ask for directions.
Pro-tip: upon entering Pompeii entrance, go directly left for the first site which is a bathhouse. Then make your way up the main walkway to see the rest of Pompeii, that way you don't have to go back to the entrance area to see the first bathhouse!
well worth the money and the time. Made me want to see more of the Naples area. Guide was very informative.
We had a great day. Our host Patricia was lovely and spoke very good english. We didn't do the tour as we have a 5 year old so thought it would suit us better to bimble in our own time. We was not pressured to do the tour which was really nice. Great journeyboth ways, would definately recommend.
A great day out. Upgraded to the guided tour at the last moment!...glad we did...Patricia was a brilliant guide. Very interesting and informative couple of hours.

Excellent. Both guide on bus and giving tour were very passionate about their work.
This was an amazing trip. The guide was a delight and very informative. this was a very pleasant trip all around. Very greatful for the this oppertunity to visit this site with the expertise provided by our guides.
Enjoyed Pompeii very much by listening to a Rick Steeve's audio download. The bus ride there was a nice inexpensive way to do a side trip from Rome, We enjoyed our tour guide who gave us some useful information to and from Pompeii.
We thoroughly enjoyed our trip to Pompeii. The bus ride was comfortable and our bus guide was very informative. Our guide through the city of Pompeii was excellent. Our group of 8 was an ideal size.
Confortable bus, fast trip, good tour guide. I recommend it!
Brilliant day out. Guide on bus was great and Pompeii incredible. Some of our party did the guided tour the rest on our own. Both loved it! No English books at the reception and no maps left either though.
Tour was lovely, meeting site was a bit hard to find but they were very helpful. Tour guide was a little hard to understand but we managed and she was very sweet and knowledgable. overall I would recommend it. Pompeii is very beautiful, the city is full of history. I had a blast.
If your going from rome then this is the best way no hassle driving and the guide was very good
It was our second trip to Pompeii. Our first trip was a guided tour. This tour allowed us to explore and experience the sites on our own leisure. It was AMAZING! We saw so many different sites we didn't see on our first visit 3 years ago. I would highly recommend it if one would like to explore on one's own time frame. We'd also rented the audio guide.
Special thanks to Geo! She was very informative, humorous and punctual! Great tour guide!
The Tour guide was incredibly informative , he knew everything there was to know and was patient and friendly . Incredibly moving and just an amazing tour all around!
Amazing - the best tour of our trip of 5 weeks. Elisa was a fantastic host and I would rate this the best value for money ever. Siena was beautiful - the lunch and wine tasting yummo - and San G, well yeah that place with its best gelato in the world, was lovely as well. Highly reccomend this tour.
Excellent trip, well organised and an enjoyable convenient way to see Pompei.
Nothing bad to say, could upgrade and buy entrance tickets and book a guided tour on the coach instead of waiting for hours at Pompei itself.
Would definitely book another trip with this organisation.
