Great tour, I was here about 32 years ago and it just keeps getting better.
Hotel pick up and drop off in Sorrento was seamless and a real must as it's a long distance. The tour guide was engaging, well informed, enthusiastic and fun spirited. He kept the group's interest with pertinent facts and history. He was patient with the group and kept us together as it was quite crowded. It would have been difficult to glean the information on our own. A half-day tour was perfect with an informed guide.
The tour was well done. We had to take a van to Pompeii. Once we got there, everything went very well in spite that there were thousands of tourists there. The guided tour of the ruins was first rate.
The trip was very informative and it was interesting to see how people lived back then. Would definitely recommend this tour. One of the highlights while in sorrento or nearby area.
Naturally it's Italy and it's hot. However, I had the most wonderful time and I was in awe when I went to Pompeii. After doing some history research on my own. I couldn't believe my own eyes that I was actually there! The tour guide was great and very friendly. She was very professional and in my opinion, new her information very well. I liked it so much, I hope I can take my family on the tour next year!
Fantastic tour guide who mixed the informative with the humorous. Would highly tecommend
Excellent guide -Suzy! The only way to see Pompeii and appreciate the history is to do a guided tour.
This was an excellent tour. Pompeii is a very interesting place and our guide was extremely knowledgeable. I would not recommend going to Pompeii without a guide as you would lose a lot. This is definitely worth it. Be warned it can be extremely hot in Pompeii because of the design of the city, there is little room for a breeze.
The bus driver was great and picked us up promtly from our central Sorreto hotel. The tour was great. Our guide was both knowledgeable and enthusiastic. The Pompeii ruins are a must see for everyone.
We thoroughly enjoyed our Viator trip. The driver was on time, picked us up in a nice, clean van and drove us from Sorrento to Pompeii. We then had a guided tour of Pompeii.
Afterwards, our guide had our driver ready to return us to Sorrento.
The pick up from and to the hotel is very convenient
Absolutely fantastic experience from start to finish. Viator was the only excursion operator that picked up from our particular hotel in Sorrento (as difficult to access) and our driver was pleasant and made it an enjoyable car drive to Pompeii. Once there, we met with a group for the tour and was introduced to our guide Sabina who was first class. She was incredibly knowledgeable about the history and the area, and was able to answer any questions. She also gave us amazing detail for everything, despite the fact she had to explain everything in English and then in Spanish to account for others in our group. Definitely the highlight to our holiday, despite various excursions through our tour operator, nothing compared to the Viator trip. Although I first believed Viator to not be as competatively priced as some others, I now only wish we had booked more from Viator, but we know for the future that you get what you pay for. Thank you!
