Excellent tour and knowledge from Ricardo our top guide. Would fully recommend.
The Pompeii Tour is the best tour I have ever been on! Highly recommended. Amalfi Coast was great as well, just that our driver was driving too fast on the mountains for my nerves.
Beautiful weather, very knowledgable tour guides, very easy to work with viator!
This was a great tour. Ricardo is the reason it was. Charming, informative, great driver...we had loads of fun. Recommend this tour to anybody...well worth it!
Pompeii is a unique and very interesting place to visit. It is so much more than mere ruins. Our morning tour provided a glimpse of what life must have been like in 79 AD in the shadow of the ever-present Mt Vesuvius. The concept and quot;stepping stones and quot; in the ancient streets got an all-new meaning, as well as the and quot;fast-food and quot; shops that served hot beverages to theater goers. Also, the very explicit mural and quot;menu and quot; in one of the brothels could just as well have been a few pages from the Kama Sutra. Our two tour guides, namely Jasmin and Suzy (English and Spanish), were very friendly, professional and knowledgeable.
The afternoon half-day trip from Naples to Amalfi along the coastal road (via Sorento and Positano) was absolutely beautiful. This must be one of the most scenic routes one can find anywhere. Our small group (only 5 persons) was treated to frequent stops for photographs, coffee, lemoncello and 20 minutes free time in Amalfi. The driver/guide, Pasquale Ombra, provided an excellent service in English; I can highly recommend him.
Overall, I was picked-up on time from my hotel (Royal Continental) and the tour (morning and afternoon itinerary) provided what was promised plus personal touches from the respective guides. I can highly recommend this tour; it is definitely worth the money.
Great trip. Excellent driver with immense local knowledge.
Our trip to Pompeii was really delayed, no fault of Viator, due to a strike at the Pompeii site. In any event they kept the group together and informed about what was going on and we eventually got in. The Pompeii guide was knowledgeable and entertaining about the history of the site, period and people. The Amalfi coast is spectacular and was a great trip the pics do not do it justice. We had a great guide Tony and driver Pasquale that really went the extra mile to ensure we got to see what we needed to. The only thing I would ask is they improve the pickup point from our ship as it was really confusing.
I will always recommend Viator after our experience in Naples! Due to the strikes at Pompeii, we were unable to enter until 11:00 am. But the tour guide surprised us with a drive up to a panoramic view of the city while we were waiting to enter Pompeii. It was a wonderful "side-track" and a gorgeous photo op. because of the delay in getting to Pompeii, we were concerned we would not have time to complete the full tour up the Amalfi coast, but our wonderful tour guide worked the whole time we were in Pompeii to make different arrangements for me and my daughter so we could still complete the tour. She hired a private driver for us, ordered us lunch to go, and off we went on a personal tour of the coast! We were so grateful for her efforts and will always remember that breath-taking view of the coast as we traveled along. We arrived in plenty of time to board the ship, just as they had promised. Thank you Viator for being such a dedicated company to your customers!
We decided at the last moment to book the tour. Viator and the tour man in Naples, Pasquale, were terrific in getting things organised quickly. 90 minutes later we were on the tour.
Pasquale was an excellent driver and provided very good commentary throughout the tour. The tour was well balanced and gave us sufficient time to explore Pompeii and the Amalfi Coast. Even a landslide a few days before, which closed part of the Amalfi coast road, did not prevent Pasquale from finding a way to give us and wonderful views and insights into this spectacular part of Italy.
The only downsides were the people in the restaurant where we stopped for the complementary lunch seem to forget to serve us and we had to wait 30 mins for our meal, getting it after we finally asked for it. Also, I would have preferred the tour to include the entry fee into Pompeii.
This was a great tour for us since we only had 2 days in Naples. We did feel a bit rushed at Pompeii since we tend to take a lot of photos. Instead of stopping at the Coral factory/museum for 20-30 mins, maybe it would be better to add that time to the Pompeii tour. Lunch was simple and good at a local restaurant where all the tour groups were being taken to. Amalfi was very nice; however, there was a huge landslide and the coastal road was not accessible. Our driver did his best to make the most of our time and took us to Amalfi using another route. We did stop a few times to take pictures which we were pleased about. Overall, this is a great tour and I would recommend it!
The tour was quite informative. The Pompeii guide was very knowladgable and progressed through the site at a good pace. The lunch was not very good and is a set menu. The Amalfi coast trip was great and our driver was brilliant and was definately the highlight of our our day.
Our Tour + Pompeii Guides were fab. It would've been good to know in big letters that the Pompeii fee isn't included, what it would cost + that our teens could get in free with proof of their ages (tho our Guide did fix this for us). The driver drove far too fast on dark mountain roads on the return
Great tour, enjoyed the spectacle very much. The tour guides were very knowledgable and the service provided was good. Amalfi coast was spectacular, a new sight around every corner.
The city of Naples was very disappointing - it looks very run down and dirty. Traffic congestion is a big problem and nobody seems to give way at traffic lights or pedestrian crossings - it was a relief to leave Naples for Pompeii and the Amalfi Coast.
We went from Naples to Sorrento for about 4 nights - Sorrento is a fantastic spot. Would avoid Naples in future.
Pick up location was well communicated and tour of Pompei excellent. The included lunch so so and be careful to check on the drink prices (not included). Tour of Amalfi was really just the driver who wasn't much of a guide. If you're a little squeamish on windy roads, sit up the front. Scenery however breathtaking.
Pompeii and Amalfi Coast were, as expected, incredible and beautiful. The guide for Pompeii was knowledgeable and helpful. The driver, Ricardo, for Amalfi was charming. I was apprehensive I would experience motion sickness due to the winding roads, but I had no trouble at all. Ricardo is an excellent driver.
