I appreciate when we have a very knowledgeable guide and this person was very good. I didn't know what to expect of this tour, I had not known the story of Mt. Vsuvius so I was very amazed to hear all about this.
Crazy but amazing guide. She really knew her stuff and had loads of extra interesting details. The tour is just enough to get a real idea of the place and what happened. It is 2 hours walking so bear that in mind if you combine with Vesuvius which is a real hike. We did it separately which I would recommend unless you are really tight for time.
A very informative if a little hurried tour of the Pompeii ruins. Our guide was excellent and clearly knew her subject. For us it was fine but I would say that the walk itself is quite long and the old original stones are no friends to your ankles so wear good tough shoes.
Our guide was very informative and fun. The earpiece equipment was really valuable especially for my hearing-impaired father, and allowed us to listen to all of the information without struggle.

Bit of a chaotic start to the trip as we arrived on a Saturday and our trip was on a Monday morning, however we were told to ring 24 hours before as a last minute confirmation. Our kind staff member at the hotel rang and informed us the office was closed. He again rang first thing Monday morning and after much discussion he managed to confirm our booking. Whilst I would recommend the trip, I did feel it was too fast moving if you were elderly as we had a job to keep up with the guide. I understand there are so many visitors to Pompeii but in hindsight we should have gone for the day and not a half day. Having said all this I would still recommend the trip as we did see what we wanted to see and the pick up and drop off were ok.
This was a great tour our guide was very funny and extremely knowledgeable. The time passed so quickly I could have stayed for a couple of more hours. I wish I could remember our guides name because he was excellent.
Great tour guide with a good sense of humor...he did a wonderful job of taking us back in time and painting a picture for us of what everyday life was like in Pompeii. For us the half-day tour was just the right amount of time.
Our tour guide was fantastic. He blended a strong grasp of Pompeii's history with great side commentary and humor. If you want to get the most from your visit, you need to do this trip.
So glad we booked this excursion. The ruins of Pompeii were greater than expected but our guide did a great job taking us to the more interesting spots and had great stories about daily life in the city back then. Only advice is to give us more time at the end to soak in the sights at the center where the artifacts were stored and larger ruins were with the view of Mt. Vesuvius.
The tour was excellent. We would not normally have participated in a guided tour, but our guide was amazing and brought the whole experience to life.
Hot so 1/2 a Day was enough, very very informative, we loved it. Our taxi driver back to the Hotel took us on the back streets of Sorrento, it's a beautiful place.
We had a brilliant guide who was both passionate about history, very knowledgeable about Pompeii and very funny and entertaining. It was a very memorable visit to a wonderful place - ideal if you only want to spend a few hours for an introductory tour to the site.
Interesting visit to see Pompeii. Tour guide was knowledgeable.
Excellent tour - just the right length and guide was very knowledgeable.
Our guide was excellent she taught us a lot! It was incredibly hot so she thoughtfully found us shady areas to stand and talk. It was truly a beautiful place filled with so much interesting history. Our drivers were also great!
This was an excellent tour. Half day was just enough. Good guide
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.
