Traveler Tips

Nothing major still a worth while tour but just use the toilet before you go in so you maximise your time inside
If you want photos, make sure to stay back for a minute and take some while still listening thru the provided speaker.
Good planning in Pompeii: acclimatization (30 minutes), guided walk (2 hours), gather before departure (10 minutes).

Not enthusiastic...
Frank_K, May 2022
Our guide was pleasant and adequate. She gave us very limited information and locations. We didn't expect an in depth tour but we did expect more.
1/2 day Pompeii
Thomas_A, May 2022
A very well executed 4 hour engagement going to Pompeii. Travel was efficient and the 2 hour tour of Pompeii hosted by our English speaking tour guide Mikela (sp?) was enjoyable. 5 stars to our guide. Two hours was perfect for us but future travelers should evaluate if they want a more extensive visit.
Not again!

The guide was constantly asking the group questions rather then imparting information. If I wanted to be quizzed I would have went back to school. At the end of visiting Pompeii you are made to stay for an hour in tourist trap central before you are returned to Naples. Upon return to Naples the driver does not bring you back to the port where you were picked up. I’d rather suffer through an eruption of Vesuvius then this tour.
Response from Host, May 2022
Dear Sir a guide asking for questions is not necessarily a bad guide and traffic conditions don't depend on us of course. Further we use to take back all participants to the same place we picked them up. My best regards
Best tour of my trip

Excellent guide- funny, knowledgeable beyond the basic tour. She tied in many current phrases we use to how they originated from early Roman life, and when asked questions it was evident her knowledge went far beyond the basic tour. Group size was 35, very manageable. Directions of where/when to meet were concise. Bus arrived on time for pick up. Excellent value for the money!!
Well organized, informative, entertaining
Shawn_R, May 2022
Viator did a great job and we enjoyed the tour and our guide. The site has removed all but just a few of the plaster casts of people to another museum. That makes the tour a little less impactful.
Pompeii with family
Joseph_D, May 2022
This half day day tour of Pompeii was exceptional. Our tour guide Francesca (she said to call her Chica) was very knowledgeable and engaging. We had two children (ages 8 and 10) on the tour and she went out of her way to include them, making them the stars fo the tour. She explained a lot about what life would have been like in Pompeii, but was very careful that the adults understood her clearly in a way that a child would not be uncomfortable. I recommend this tour highly, but I recommend Chica even more highly. She was fantastic.
This is a must ..way to visit Pompeii
Randy_B, Apr 2022
This is a must for a visit from Naples. Our tour guide Elisa was wonderful. She was informative, charismatic and funny. She certainly had us wanting another tour with her. Hotel pickup and drop off was perfect and really added to the experience.
Best thing I did in Naples
Lori_S, Apr 2022
It was a rainy day but I still had a great time doing this. Our guide Francesca was wonderful! She gave us so much great information. She interacted wonderfully with the group including the kids. Honestly?, I didn’t think I would enjoy this tour so my lunch but I really liked it.

Great guide but badly organized tour
Lasse_M, Apr 2022
The guide was great and funny. But the trip was badly organized, and we had to wait a lot after we arrived in Pompeii, before the guided tour started. The driver back to Naples was horrible.
