People told us not to bother with Pompeii because it would be too hot, however even in the extreme heat of this summer my husband and I LOVED this trip. Andre, our tour guide was excellent and had a great working knowledge of life in Pompeii. It was honestly one of the coolest things we did. Highly recommended!!
Amazing! What a fantastic time we had learning all about Pompeii. Would recommend to everyone.
Excellent tour and extremely informative
Our guide was extremely knowledgable
Half day tour was perfect in such hot weather
The pick and drop off by the bus worked very well - on time and in a small group. Meeting the guide and getting the audio equipment also worked well - it was incredibly busy and amongt the chaos the operators worked very smoothly. Andreas our guide was informative, audible, amusing and energetic.
It was very busy and very hot - not a surprise at Italy's most popular tourist attraction in July - so wear sensible shoes as there is a lot of walking and take a water bottle that can be filled at the original water points - and there are many.
Overall, a great way to see a truly amazing site - I was surprised at how intact it remained but then again it was covered and protected by ash for 1700 years. And great value.
Fantastic tour! I'm not normally a big tour group fan, but this was a smaller group about 19 people. The van picked us up at our hotel on time and saved us the worry of trying to figure out how to get to Pompeii and back. Our guide, Andrea I think that was his name was entertaining, spoke English very well and pointed out things my husband and I would have missed. Definitely recommend.
Wonderful tour. Great ride there, being picked up at the dock in Sorrento after riding the ferry from Isle of Capri. The driver was prompt, and had a sign with our name on it. The tour guide was very entertaining and kept us moving. Lots of walking on uneven ground, so wear comfortable shoes. Saw lots of cool stuff!
Roundtrip transportation to and from my hotel was included. Transportation arrived on-time and the vehicle used was very nice, comfortable and clean. The tour guides were professional, knowledgeable and entertaining. I would recommend taking this tour.
Great tour guide. Very knowledgeable and humorous, and a really interesting site to visit. Found it really informative and entertaining, and glad we did it! Thoroughly recommend!
Very good, picked up at hotel and then we had an excellent guide in Pompeii!
Very well organised tour from start to finish and our guide around Pompeii was lovely.
very crowded but great history and ruins we really enjoyed seeing this. our guide was very animated and made learning about all this very enjoyable. this area is a must see
Andreas was the best tour guide we could have had. Made the tour extremely interesting. Learned so much history in such a fun way. Amazed at how big Pompei was and all the archeology that has taken place. Definitely would take this tour again.
Maria was very warm and excited about taking us on this tour. She is knowledgeable and professional with a great sense of humor. I have sung her praises to many of the people that attended the destination wedding that brought us to Italy.
Our guide Andrew was exceptional. He made history come alive with his side notes and humor. Really enjoyed the tour.
This was an excellent tour of Pompeii - the tour itself was about 2 hours walking around Pompeii - our guide was very informative and very personable - he made the tour fun! The other 2 hours were spent on a bus riding to and from Pompeii .,but if you just want to ensure you see Pompeii while in this area of Italy - I do recomend this. Viatour picked us up when they said they would from our cruise ship and got us back in plenty of time to still spend time in Sorrento.
It was so interesting to hear about and see the history of Pompeii past the one or two human figures! Brilliant tour guide
Our guide had a great voice: easy to understand and he clearly knew the history of Pompeii. I will recommend this tour to my family and friends. Take an umbrella to shield yourselves from the sun. Very good tour: a snapshoot of every day life in this ancient area.
A tour of Pompeii in my opinion is a must. Our guide was outstanding. Would totally recommend this tour
