Just did our own walking, but found the experience to be a once in a lifetime event.
For those wanting to do Pompeii it yourself from Rome this is an easy solution. The trip gives you plenty of time to explore Pompeii's ruins.
It was an excellent trip. Precisely what I paid for. Highly recommended.
Four hours to spend in Pompei, and no compulsory lunch or cameo tour. Perfect.
The bus was nice and clean and air-conditioned. It was very roomy and comfortable, plus the staff was very polite and prompt. It was a great trip to take and see Pompeii on our own. We got into a tour group when we got there to enhance our experience. Definitely recommend this trip if you have time!
We really enjoyed our trip to Pompeii from Rome. The hardest part was finding the Viator office near Termini - the rest was wonderful! We were comfortable on the bus, which stopped to allow us to use facilities and purchase snacks/drinks. We didn't want to be gabbed at and guided around, which they didn't do. We enjoyed discovering Pompeii on our own, and knew our trip to and from was safe, secure and comfortable. I would do it again.
This was an excellent trip - the bus was comfortable, the "comfort stop" provided adequate, and the information sufficient. An excellent option for those who prefer the comfort of being taken to a location, and the opportunity of then planning their own sight-seeing while there
Exactly what was promised --- a van ride from central Rome to the front gate of Pompeii. The van was on schedule and otherwise perfectly satisfactory. I would recommend it if you are interested in seeing yourself around rather than going with a tour guide.
100% excellent! We accidentally missed our bus due to a miss understanding of the information, we went down to the office at around 8:15am, they were very understanding and rescheduled our trip. On the day of the trip the bus was punctual, it was comfortable and air conditioned. The guide pointed out a few landmarks as we drove down. the time we had in Pompeii was plentiful, on the way back the motorway was closed, the guide explained this to us and explained we would be slightly delayed. The views along the coast were stunning so the alternative route was not a problem. In the end we were only around 40 minutes later than planned. It was worth the money, we had toilet stops, i would certainly recommend this trip.
This tour was perfect for us as we had limited time in Rome. We were travelling with our 3 children so this tour enabled us to travel from Rome to Pompeii in one day hassle free. Once at Pompeii, we had the flexibility to hire our own guide for a couple of hours and still had time to explore the sight independently, without being locked into a ridged tour schedule, which can be difficult with young children. This was a long day but worth it.
Very enjoyable. The trip was everything that we expected.
As a group of 4 adults we found this day trip to be very good. The guide on the bus, Fabio, who was a young student studying archeology was very informative. We had a lovely chat with him on the way home regarding Pompeii and his studies. You do need to pay for the entrance into Pompeii and there is no cafe, etc once you enter. There are toilets near the ticket booth and outside in the car park. There are also eateries and souvenier stands in the car park. Halfway way to Pompeii we stopped for a 15min break and so we purchased food and drinks there to take in with us. After purchasing your tickets you can recieve a free bookle and map of Pompeii which was available in a few different languages. The map and booklet was very useful. We were given 4.5 hours to look around which unfortunately didn't allow us to see everything. But we enjoyed the day very much and would recommend doing this trip.
