Guide was fine, but maybe not the most professional-looking. Got to see a bit of Naples, including a vista over the whole city, a plaza and coffee shop, and an important church. Group kept getting bigger as we went, and by the time we picked everyone up for Pompeii, the size was almost unmanageable 32 people I think?. We did have headsets to hear the guide, but the side of the group was a little disappointing. Pompeii itself is very much worth seeing and our guide did a great job of explaining everything. There was an uncomfortable point when she was yelling at other independent tourists for cutting ahead of us in line. To be fair to the others, it was not clearly a line... But the tour guide seemed to be prejudiced against foreigners she made a point of how rude these Argentinians were, as some Italians skipped ahead of us as well as I said, it wasn't clearly a line of people waiting and she was considerably nicer to them. Very awkward and unpleasant. Unprofessional to do in front of your tour group when you're on mic. Apart from that moment, though, the tour was good and I would recommend it. Transport was fine. Asked to get dropped off at the Archeological Museum on the way back and enjoyed that as well.

For us this Pompeii tour was one of the highlights of our trip to Italy, and we highly recommend it. It was fascinating to glimpse the life of this once-thriving city now in ruins with views of Mt. Vesuvius in the background, and our tour guide was excellent.

This adventure was great. Pompeii was amazing and much more than I expected. Our guide Elisa was awesome. She was easy to understand, answered all our questions, and was always pleasant. This is a must do trip!!!

I learned a lot of things on this tour, and they were all really interesting, but the format of the tour nearly ruined the experience. The Naples half of the tour was fine, but the Pompeii half felt haphazard and disorganized. My tour guide was speaking on the phone on our ride to Pompeii, sounding like there were people missing from our tour. She became very agitated and started shouting, which I found unprofessional. The group was large, around 40 people, and we used radio headsets, which I was not expecting. At the end, the group was split into 3 according to next destinations. This took them nearly half an hour to sort out.

In addition, I met a woman on the tour who said that she did not get hotel pickup, even though the website states that pickup is included. She was told she had to walk to a location 15 minutes away with 1 hour's notice.

The Pompeii tour was very informative. The Naples portion was very short and could have been done better. The tour guide did not tell us about certain streets we should visit, about local Naples food such as the Baba, and other Naples-centric things that I don't know about. We saw a select few sites, but even though there wasn't time, we could have been told about Napoleaton things during the drive to Pompeii. Also, if I would have known that the tour guide was going to speak three different languages to the different sets of people on the tour, I would have selected a different tour. I think this ate up the time that she could have been talking about more things in English.

First half was a bit messy - didn't see much of city and were told we only had time for 10 mins in Cathedral due to late pick ups but then had coffee which could have been left out. Pompeii was brilliant though .

Our tour guide was fantastic. She was an expert and one of the best. Unfortunately I can not remember her name, i think it was Elisa or Eloisa and she was multilingual and very intelligent.
