This was a great tour! Our guide Elise was awesome! She knew so much history!
The Tour of Naples was with a small group with direct pick-up from the ship. We got an amazing look at a magnificent basilica in Naples, a great overview of Naples at an amazing overlook, and time to stop and get delicious espresso! Elise was able to switch between French, Italian, and English, all with everyone feeling like they each got information, it was amazing!
Then our small group headed to Pompeii and we were joined by other groups. I saw on past reviews that this is where the group grew astronomically. We were lucky, as there wasn't a lot of cruise ships in that day, so our group didn't grow too unwieldy, but I could see how it could happen. We were able to stay with Elise, but people speaking different languages got other tour guides and went off on their own. It was a great tour of the ancient city, and we really enjoyed our time and our guide. We got to see so many things, and learn so much interesting history. This was far better than the tours offered by the cruise ship, because they were groups numbering upwards of 60! This was a nice group, no bigger than 25, and we were able to all stay together and listen to the great information from our amazing guide!
Thank you Viator for giving us a great day!
We loved this tour! Our tour guide Elisa was very knowledgeable and entertaining. She also gave us great recommendations of where and what to eat in Naples.
Excellent tour. Our guide was superb and gave us a great insight into the way of life in Pompeii. She was very knowledgeable with a great sense of humour so we were learning and laughing throughout the tour. Would highly recommend it.
The guide was excellent. Easy to understand and very knowledgeable. Thoroughly enjoyed the day.
We were in the med for a cruise and this excursion was the best value by far! We did private tours in Rome and Florence/Pisa. However, after reading the reviews, I booked this excursion. We were a party of 6 and there were only 2 other people on our tour. Our driver picked us up at the boat port, there were about 50 people holding signs and we didn't see him, but suddenly we saw him and all was fine. He spoke barely any English and I was nervous. But he spoke a little Spanish and I found out we were quickly picking up our guide. Our guide was Elisa, her English, and passion for Naples and Pompeii was OUTSTANDING!!!! She kept my children's attention the whole day. She was truly fabulous! Her stories were fascinating. Again, we had tours every day, and by far this was our best tour guide and our least expensive. My only wish was that we could have done Pompeii first in the morning, and then Naples after. It was SO HOT at Pompeii it was august. Dress as light as possible. The timing was the perfect mix of Naples and Pompeii. Again, HIGHLY RECOMMEND ELISA!!!!
Our guide was fabulous and very helpful. All was as expected and even better. I highly recommend this tour.
Fantastic tour and lovely guide both for Naples and at Pompeii. Very informative tour and a great way to see Naples and Pompeii without losing your whole day. At Pompeii you get a headset which really helps otherwise you couldn't hear the guide speaking, which you want to hear as they are very informative. Highly recommended, a fantastic tour!!
Wonderful private morning tour of Naples. Great sites, a special church visit, a view from up high, shopping tips, neighborhoods, and the history of Pizza. It was an incredible morning with our guide.
We continued on to Pompeii for the second half of the day, and once again our tour was informative, educational, and shows the passion of the people of Naples and their rich history.
A recommended tour of Naples city and ancient Pompeii- Knowledgeable guide- took time to insure we understood her explanation of areas viewed - answered many questions
Did this walking tour with Charlotte...she was amazing such a wonderful guide and person. Full of information she made this tour very enjoyable and informative. Great value for money. Thanks Charlotte from John and Helen and Helen and Dan....Ireland
Our tour guide is one of the best. Strong knowledge with detail of history of all sites.
This was an excellent day, from the itinerary, right down to the tour guide. Most of the day was spent at Pompeii, which I appreciated. The bus driver was also amazing how he managed to maneuver through the streets of Naples, I do not know.
These tours were very good. Our guide's English was excelent and I would definitely recomend this tour
Outstanding tour. Both Maria in Naples handling an English speaking and Italian speaking group was great. Lisa later in Pompeii in English was also outstanding.
Great tour great sights
Excellant tour... we were met at cruise terminal by our driver and tour guide... only 6 people on our tour of Naples.... the van was small and hard to see out the windows, but our guide was excellant and she spoke great english. We stopped at the Cathederal then around the city and up to viewpoint overlooking Naples....beautiful. Then to a plaza and a chance for expresso and baked goods. Then drove to Pompeii..... there we met other groups and we were about 30 total walking thru Pompeii. We each had headsets so it was very easy hearing our guide....she was still excellant explaining all the ruins....quite good and a good sense of humor. Perfect time in December to go....very few people there.... one of the highlights of our trip
Very good five hours worth, including the Cathedral and some areas of downtown Naples together with a short drive to get a superb view of the city and its harbour, followed by a two hour tour of Pompeii, all excellently explained by our delightful guide Maria. It was a pleasure to have this virtually private tour in a comfortable minibus
tour guide was very knowledgeable and the tour was very interesting.
Jam packed, but for only a few hours in France we got to experience a lot!! Pompeii was very cool and our tour guide, MariaLuisa was funny, friendly and keep everyone moving along. She was knowledgeable and made sure we saw the key points in Pompeii with an appropriate amount of free time in Nice. One of the best days on our trip. Thank her for us!!!
The only issue we had was with waiting to get on the bus on the return from Pompeii. We had planned for a free afternoon in Naples to eat pizza and we were rushed because of the delay in getting back.
Alfredo was our tour guide and he was awesome! Very personable and friendly...also very knowledgeable about the history of the city and monuments. Pompeii was a good hike around the massive city and great history to learn about. We did get a taste of the fabulous lemoncello and amazing lemonade!
