Naples. we got picked up from our hotel early just to wait in Naples. Our tour guide Elise was so sweet funny and totally real. she gave us good information as well as dining tips in Sorrento! which we ended up going to. shout out to Ristorante Donna Sofia. we then did Pompeii with another guide which was fascinating to finally see. the only thing I would say would be to add 15 minutes at the end of Pompeii to use the restroom, buy a snack etc. They sort of rushed us to the bus. Other than that, def should do this tour.

Bummer that traffic slowed things down, but overall this is a great way to hit a few highlights in Naples, see Pompei and then get back to Sorrento in time to enjoy the late afternoon and have a nice dinner. Definitely a must.

We had the best time on the Naples/Pompeii tour with Viator. Andrew was an excellent guide and very well informed about Naples and Pompeii. We had such a fun time. We will remember Pompeii forever as Andrew brought it alive with his speaking tour!!! Our van driver and hotel pickup driver were the best drivers ever. thank you so much. We will recommend this tour to all our friends and to anyone wishing to visit Naples and Pompeii.

The Naples visit was a little on the short side, although The Basilca St Genaro was interesting and Pompeii was very very good and most important the guide Andrea I think his name is, he was very good in giving interesting information
