Why Travelers Choose This Tour

With this tour, stop in Naples before Pompeii and shop for coral jewelry before heading back to Rome.
Begin your Rome to Naples day trip with a pickup from your hotel. Or, simply meet your guide near Rome Termini station. Once aboard your coach, relax on the journey south to the Campania region and look out for sights such as the Abbey of Montecassino. The Benedictine monastery is a dramatic sight, perched on top of a hill in the rocky Castelli Romani area.
After three hours on the road, arrive in the Campania capital of Naples, and see its sights from the comfort of your coach. Take in views of the coast as you pass along the road from Mergellina Port to the fishing district of Santa Lucia. Then, stretch your legs with a photo stop by the medieval seaside fort of Castel dell’Ovo.
Work your way into Naples’ historic center for a look at Piazza del Plebiscito and its fine collection of monuments. Hear snippets of history about Naples Royal Palace (aka Palacio Real), the three Bourbon palaces and the Basilica of San Francesco di Paola — a church with attention-grabbing colonnades. Other Naples attractions seen include Castel Nuovo, Galleria Umberto I and Teatro di San Carlo.
Leave the city by coach and travel further south toward Mt Vesuvius. Pass towns such as Ercolano — home to the ancient site of Herculaneum — as well as Torre del Greco and Torre Annunziata. Stop in Pompeii for lunch at a local restaurant, and then visit Pompeii’s UNESCO-listed ruins on a 2-hour tour.
Hear how the city lay buried under a sea of volcanic ash from Mt Vesuvius as you admire the excavations of monuments such as the 5,000-seater Teatro Grande.
Finally, return to your coach and relax on your journey back to Rome. Your tour finishes with a drop-off in Rome.

Let me start by saying Rome Italy is a DIRTY CITY with Graffiti everywhere and trash. Not recommended to visit by us we will never go back. Now for the trip . The tour would not pick us up at the hotel, they said the hotel is out of there boundary area, so we had to take a taxi $20 euros to the tour office. The tour guide Female ( I never got her name) was terrible over the intercom on the bus nobody could understand what she was saying. while riding on the bus. We didn't know the bus was dropping off folks to take a ferry to Capri. just an unexpected stop but we also picked up another tour guide for the trip to Pompei. The tour in Pompei was fantastic a must see and do. The tour only covers only a small portion of the old city, I'm sure it would take all day to view the entire city or even two days and no rushing. After leaving the bus had to back to Naples to pickup those who went over to Capri, we sat on the bus for almost a hour waiting for those folks to get back. No water of food ( unless you brought your own) while sitting the whole time. Not Good. Once everyone was back on the bus the tour guide had the bus driver drive through the middle of town at rush hour, needless to say we were in stop and go traffic for another 45 minutes be getting out of Naples. Naples is another dirty city next to the ocean I wouldn't want to live there but that's me. The tour guide asked us where our hotel was so she could let the bus driver know where to drop us off at hotel, well this NEVER happened, they dropped us off at one of there tour offices. I asked if the office was open The tour guide said yes it was, Nope wrong again, we were stuck somewhere where we had no idea where we were, and at almost 10 pm at night. We walked around the corner and thankfully there was a hotel open ( everything else was closed because it was a Sunday and at night) so we could asked if they could call a taxi for us. They were very nice and they called a taxi for us, another $20 in Euros. I would NEVER recommend this tour to anybody .

Great trip, tour guide very knowledgeable, lunch was very good, would have given 5 stars except for the stop at the cameo store.

The place was great although the trip there was a little long at 3 hrs each way. The local guide in Pompeii started off on a good note but when it started to rain quite heavily at one stage, he insisted on continuing the walk in the rain. When most of the participants took shelter under some of the ruins, he got upset and decided to end the tour. He led us back to the museum area and gave us some instructions to return to the exit ourselves. He also forgot to pick up some of the other participants that were left behind.I felt that it was a very bad ending to the tour and his attitude was very unprofessional. He seem to have no regard for the needs of his customers. There was no instructions as to where and when we should meet our bus guide and we could almost have missed our coach returning to Rome as we could not find our bus guide at first. We gave feedback to the bus guide but she mentioned that there was nothing much she could do. In addition the lunch quality was below average and we were not warned about having to tip the singer during the lunch.

Nice to get picked up at hotel. Tour guide was OK - nothing special.
Lunch was way too long. It was our worse meal in Italy. Sandwich and soft drinks would have been fine and less time consuming.
The escort D wasn't very patient with an elderly couple. When we stopped, they couldn't see their hotel from the bus. He could have been more diplomatic with them. He's got to remember that everything is different and new for us tourists in Rome - and it was very dark.
The sequence of our drop off was announced, but then changed when a bunch of Spaniards complained.
Bus was clean, seats tight but overall comfortable.

A Great Day tour to Pompeii Definitely a must see! The only thing i would say is that i wish we had more time to explore Pompeii we had a whole day trip from Rome , so we had a couple stops , one being in Naples, but we only had a few hours at the ruins of Pompeii and didn't get to see everything.

The green line tour guide that handled everything except Pompeii was good . Pompeii was an exceptional historic site and was very interesting. The tour guide thru Pompeii was awful. It was suppose to be an English tour but he spoke very poor English and then it was combined with Spanish which is what he used most of the time. not worth the cost it was a self tour so we were over charged

Short but excellent time in Pompeii. Enough shade that even in 90 degree summer heat it was doable. The bay of Naples is beautiful. At the end of the day, a group spending the night in Sorrento departed on a separate van and we went back to the city. Wish I could have gone with them, haha. I wish the tour would stop for photo op with all of the sunflower fields you end up driving by. They offered drop offs on the way back which saved us metro fare. I appreciated it! We bought a much needed coffee at the early morning meeting spot. A long day but well worth it.

Pompeii was amazing the tour experience was not. It is a bus tour through Napoli. The guide manager was difficult to understand in both english and spanish. During the bus tour they local guide would point out features, however, if you are not in the front of the bus you can not see what she is referring too. We were not given time to walk around Napoli. The lunch was a horrible experience. The guides even warned people not to order the fish. Service was slow. Once I received my food they were busing all the tables. The pizza was burnt and the dish was horrible. Majority of people left their plates. I had gone on several tours during this trip and I have never had a horrible experience like this.....Pompeii is amazing. The local guide did a good job showing us the site. I recommend seeing the archeological site. however, this tour combo...I would find another.
