Good tour but the guide did not take us to the place i wanted to see
A great way to see Pompeii at your own pace. It was nice to just be driven there in an air-conditioned bus and back. It was a long day, but worth it.
Everything was perfect, the bus, bus driver, coordinator and tour guide!
This was one of our favorite trips while in Italy! We thoroughly enjoyed Pompeii. The shuttle bus was so comfortable and roomy, the leader on the bus was funny, happy and knowledgeable and made the bus trip fun. Our tour guide in Pompeii was just great and gave us so much info, all while being jovial and funny. We loved this trip so much!
We were very happy with our tour: both Patricia on the bus and Vincenzo our guide at Pompeii. Both had great humour and charm, we had lovely day. We left knowing so much more than when we arrived.
Our guide at the ruins was very, very good. Very informative and personable. Good bus driver
The tour is Gd. Both the main guide n the English speaking guide at Pompeii are very well informative
This your was fantastic for when you don't have a couple of days to explore Pompeii. Carmine our guide injected personality into the tour as he showed and explained to us the most important parts. Patricia and Andriano also ensured we made it there and back safely.
Extremely comfortable way to travel to Pompeii. Slight delay leaving due to the Rome rail system, but all the staff were extremely apologetic, clearly it was a one off. A wonderful trip
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.
