Well organized tour allowing us to see Naples Cathedral and the Panoramic places for ourselves early... It was almost like we had Naples must visit places all to ourselves to enjoy for the first leg...then we transferred to Pompeii with a new group. Maria our guide was great!!
We had a great tour and our tour guide Elena was the best! Despite the rain we had an enjoyable tour of Naples and felt a new appreciation for a city that gets a bad rap! We even returned at the end of our stay to visit the archeological museum at her suggestion! One of the highlights was our visit to Pompeii and were thrilled that the rain held off and we could enjoy the tour and learn from our wonderful tour guide the colorful history and world wide fascination of Pompeii!
Excellent tour and very informative. Our guide was thoughtful and knew her subject matter well.
Our guide, Andrea, was excellent. Entertaining, very knowledgeable and very funny too! We enjoyed our tiny glimpse of Naples and were fascinated with Pompeii. Next time we will spend more time at both.
Promptly picked up at our hotel in a clean, air conditioned bus and met by Andre, our guide for complete tour. Andre is fluent in many languages, but English was our language and we were very pleased. His passion is history, therefore, we had an informative tour with a tremendous amount of humor thrown in. The city tour was quick but saw much more than if we were on our own. About 40 minute ride to Pompeii. The site was so interestingly presented by Andre. While there were headsets for the Pompeii portion of the trip - it was always easy to hear and understand what Andre was saying. Back at the entrance, a gift of Lemoncello was a welcome treat. At this time, we opted to go on to the afternoon Mt. Vesuvius tour which included lunch. Lunch was a typical Italian lunch. Another short ride and we were at the base of Mt Vesuvius. We were given time to climb and return Its a hike, but well worth it. Again spectacular sites from the view at the top you will think was worth the hike. This was the last of the 5 tours we took with Viator in Italy. All upcoming tour needs, I will definitely choose Viator as a booking site as promised, prompt and professional. P.S. If you can get Andre for your guide you are in for a treat!
Fab day out. Very informative both in naples and pompeii. Both guides were excellent. Got lots of information as we toured naples and during 2hrs in pompeii we were shown the ruins necesarry to give you a feel of what life was like back then

We had Andre as our guide for both portions of the tour. We enjoyed both potions of our tour. Not only was Andre informative - he has a tremendous sense of humour. While there were headsets for the Pompeii portion of the trip - at times it was difficult to make out what Andre was saying. Driver nice
My husband and I were really happy that we booked this tour of Naples and Pompeii. I don't think that we would have been able to make our way around Naples by ourselves like we did in Rome. You definitely want someone to guide you around this city. Our favorite part of the tour was, of course, Pompeii. Our tour guide really knew her way around these ruins, and she was well-versed on the history of the city. I definitely recommend this tour!
Excellent tour, we were picked un from hotel just on time and had a personalized tour of Naples, then joined our group por Pompeii, another great tour and aoutstanding guide.
The tour was great. Tour guide was excellent. On other hand there is difference between actual and web price. I ended up to pay more than supposed to be.
our guide Andrea was superb - informative, humorous, knowledgeable and he made the Pompeii trip for me. I was picked up on time in a clean, air conditioned people carrier and everything was well organised. Happy to recommend.
This was a very interesting tour and our guide Andre was excellent. Very informative, and fun. Thank you so much!
Great way to see Naples the city and our tour of Pompei was great. Our guide was very informative and the team took great care of us. We appreciated the on time pick up from our local location and the very organized tour overall.
Well worth booking the city trip as the guide was very knowledgeable and was able to show us parts of the city of Naples we otherwise would have missed.Pompeii is a must unfortunately we had very bad weather the day we went so advisable to carry an umbrella with you as there is no shelter and the place is vast but well worth the experience.
Thiswas a very nice informative City tour and most professiona giude through Pompei.
We leraned a lot and enjoyed the day a lot.
Great tour! Weather was atrocious but our guides were fantastic. Highly recommended :)
I cannot say just how much I enjoyed this tour. Our guide was amazing and very knowledgeable. We had been on a tour the night before and were disappointed. Not this time. We were given lots of information about the sights we saw, taken into the Basilica of San Gennaro (wow), delighted by the City from top to bottom and then the piece de resistance - Pompei. What an amazing place. Once again our guide walked us through history, regaling us with funny bits of information about life in Pompei. Loved it to bits and would recommend this tour to all.
What was nice about this trip was we had Maria all to ourselves on the first part of the tour so we got very personalized service seeing Naples. The second half was with a different guide in Pompeii and she also did a nice job explaining everything to a now larger group. The nice part about the city tour is it got us situated for the rest of our stay in Naples.
Despite the drizzle, the guide made the tour thoroughly enjoyable - she was genuinely passionate about the art of neopolitan churches and the culture of Pompeii.
This tour met our needs during a quick 48 hour stopover in Naples. We booked the tour last minute. The representative I spoke with on the phone was courteous and clear about trip details. Our driver picked us up at our hotel promptly at 8:30. The Mercedes mini-bus was new and very clean and the driver courteous and friendly. We spent time touring Duomo di San Gennaro and then drove to other key buildings and stopped for some amazing city views before we picked up additional tourists to join us for the Pompeii portion of the tour.
Our guide, Maria, provided a great overview of how life was in Pompeii. We were able to tour the theater, Gladiators Barracks, Stabian Baths, House of Faun, Buildings of Eumachia, and Lupanari to name a few. Maria's comments were insightful pointing out many details along the way, things we would have overlooked if we were touring by ourselves. If you want to spend time wandering through Pompeii, don't take this tour. But if you want an informative overview without any worries, TAKE THIS TOUR! My experience with this Viator tour was outstanding.
Staff was knowledgeable and very friendly. Thoroughly enjoyed the trip/experience. Would definitely use Viator recommendations again.
Pompeii was the highlight of this tour. Our tour guide was fantastic. He was able to help you understand what life was like back then. Walking through the city streets of Pompeii was amazing. Although I would not suggest taking kids on this tour. There were some pretty explicit images. But overall very much worth the money.
Great value tour! Tour guide very professional! Love it x 1000
One of the highlights of our trip throughout Italy. So much information it would be hard to remember most of it; but it was incredible! Very good tour guide and very good history lesson. Highly recommend!
