The tour was really good. Was worth the 3 hours on the bus there and back!! Would highly recommend! !
Favourite day of my holiday. This trip was amazing! Meeting point was easy to find, and the bus journey was comfortable. Gia our guide was very entertaining and gave us plenty of tips for Pompeii and Rome. We upgraded to a 2 hour guided tour and are so glad we did. we underestimated just how big Pompeii is so it allowed us to see all the "must see's" and also gave us plenty of time to explore on our own after.
This was a real highlight of my trip to Italy. I absolutely loved it. Gio was a fantastic hostess and Tiziana (sp??) a highly informative guide. I highly recommend to do the upgrade and take the tour, it really was worth the extra for the additional information and history. What a spectacular place to visit. Fantastic stop off for breakfast and on the way home. Just do it. Unreal!!
Bus left promptly. Good mid way stop. Booked the tour if Pompeii with the travel tour organised by viator. Well worth it as it is difficult to see the best sites independently in two hours. Good places to eat just outside the site. Prompt return journey. All in all well worth the visit.
Excellent trip would definitely recommend it. Very good coach and tour guide (Inger). We stopped on the way out and return at a service area and the food and drinks were reasonably priced for a service area.
Great Day, well organised and gave us plenty of time in Pompeii, good information on the way helped maximise our enjoyment of the site
Our taxi to the meeting point was late, meaning we arrived late at the pick up point, but it was no problem, we were walked from the office to the coach - no complaints. The coach itself was very comfortable and the guides were friendly. We opted to look around pompeii ourselves but it was quite hard work trying to find your way around in the heat, so I would probably recommend taking the tour. All in all very well run service.
The tour guide, Gio was just great. So informative and a good sense of humour. The truck stop was very good and I must say one of the best coffees. So arriving at Pompeii and passed over to the local guide was very good and the information given about the site was also very good. I met up with two nice women from the US and we had a lovely lunch together at a local restaurant, with loads of chatter. The trip back was good and and another stop at the cafe. (We also stopped there on the way down). It was a sunny but not too hot of a day and the crowds were not too bad.. All in all perfect day out. Barbara
This worked perfectly for us. The bus was on time. The host was helpful. The info sheet he distributed says what is not currently available to be seen. And there was no appreciable traffic to shorten the visit.
Not knowing the city, we did a test run to find our morning meeting spot the night before. Directions to the office weren't as clear and this helped. Other tour members didn't, and after loading and starting through the city, our bus had to circle back to pick up a tardy client. Our guide Gio was informative with a little bit of info on Pompeii and a lot of helpful info for first time tourists in Rome. The bus ride was comfortable and went quickly. The local tour leader Francisco was a character and we were thrilled all around with the depth of his knowledge and story telling that gave context to our experience at Pompeii.
Fantastic tour! The bus trip was comfortable and quiet. The guide on the bus was informative without using the microphone constantly like some tours!
The guide at Pompeii was fantastic! His name is Carmen and He had good English skills, was helpful and friendly.
The tour is amazing and a must see!
There is alot of walking and is quite rocky and uneven, consider this especially for the elderly and handicapped.
Excellent trip. Bus was on time both directions. Staff was courteous. Comfortable bus. It was easy to hire an official Pompeii tour guide once we got to the excavation site. And seeing ancient Pompeii was completely worth the trip. Thank you!
