The driver was prompt and the guide was great!! She spoke perfect english and was very knowledgable about the area and its history. We were able to see a lot in a short amount of time Pompeii was amazing!! I would recommend this to anyone it was about half the price of the excursions offered by our cruise line.

We're quickly learning that working with Viator is about as easy as it gets. The van was waiting for us when we were among the first dozen off the ship. This trip was the most complicated of the three we booked. We had a group of seven and the van seated a dozen. We picked up two more at the ship and another two en route. Getting out of the port is brutal. Too many vehicles and too little space...the disadvantage of a downtown port. We made a couple of fairly quick stops before the short drive to Pompeii. Our guide handed us off to another group of about 30, and the guide was excellent. Had excellent stories and her English was excellent. Did we mention it was HOT. Not sure if the natives died from the volcano or the heat. Be prepared. At the end of the tour we were instructed to go with others to a large bus which took us back to port. Not a problem but not what we thought we had purchased. We will definitely work with Viator again. Thanks.

Very good experience, excellent tour guide. Wish we had more time to stop at a scenic spot for a coffee or snack.

The shore excursion to Naples and Pompeii was wonderful especially because it was a small group and the guide was very personable and informative.

Pompeii was our favorite Europe experience. Our tour guide Elisa was excellent - has 25 years of experience and had so many interesting details to share that made you get a picture of what their culture was like and how people's everyday life was like in this city before it was destroyed by the volcanic ash. Would not miss Pompeii if you're visiting Italy! The Naples city tour wasn't much but gave you a little taste of the city.

Elise was a wonderful guide! We appreciated her knowledge very much! We were met by the driver who took us to the first stop, a beautiful church, where we met our guide. Her English was excellent. She's a very intelligent person and had loads of information. She led us through Pompeii like a pro and we learned so much. If you are traveling with kids or teens, this 1/2 day tour is perfect!

bit rushed through Naples, huge tour group in Pompeii

, Jan 2018

The tour was well organised our guide very informative and knowledgeable. The bus driver was very careful amongst erratic traffic.
Pompeii was a huge place with lots of walking at times on uneven ground, wear flat comfortable shoes sunscreen and hat, take water. Toilets and washrooms were very crowded, had to line up, very inadequate for the amount of visitors.
Pompeii was very thought provoking about how the people and animals lost their lives in such a devastating event, in a very advanced civilisation.
Our guide told many interesting stories, and we would recommend a visit to this site.
Naples is a very cosmopolitan crowded city lovely food and good coffee.
