Pompeii was brought to life by our guide Stephania - and lived up to expectations.
Herculaneum was another step up - and with the same guide we saw and heard so much more than we could have expected.
A must do for anyone with real interest.
Our guide was very good as she had great expression and passion about the life and death at that time.
This was a fantastic trip and we enjoyed every minute. The guide sorry but never found out her name! really knew her stuff and was attentive and courteous. The lunch was lovely in a nice restaurant. We would thoroughly this tour.
The trip was fantastic! Lucia was our guide for the am and the pm. She was knowledgeable about both sites.
Our guide Lucia was great, it was in August so very hot and she managed to keep us all on track. She was very informative would do it again.
Guide for Pompeii was very knowledgable and informative, lunch was great, disappointed in the Herculaneum visit. The site itself was impressive but not having anyone to talk about the history and discovery, etc. was disappointing.
This was a great tour.We learned so much about Pompeii and Herculaneum, especially as we has a fantastic tour guide called Steph who really made the day enjoyable.
What a memorable day trip. You actually go back in time and can envision life before the 79a.d. eruption. Everything I learned I brought back to my classroom and shared that knowledge with my students. I highly recommend this trip!

This was an amazing day of history and archeology. It's a must do while in Naples. Lunch was yummy!
We were most impressed with the amount of excavation done, and the state of preservation of the ruins. The tour was very informative, especially the bits about the lives of ordinary citizens and nobles /politicians at that era in Italy. Herculaneum was even better preserved than Pompeii. Lunchgr8
Excellent day out, tour guide was very informative and knowledgeable ,lunch was good and lots of time to take photos.
Our guides, Lucia and Anna, were very knowledgeable and friendly and spoke English quite well. The tour gave many interesting facts about the ruins and about life in Pompeii and Herculaneum. The bus ride was comfortable, and the mid-day lunch in a large, pleasant restaurant was ample and tasty. If you're visiting in mid-summer, bring sunglasses, umbrella, fan, and plenty of bottled water, because it's HOT and there is little shade.
Breathtaking! To walk streets and to go in to buildings that people were in thousands of years ago is something you just can't comprehend. Guides were great and definitely worth a day trip.
The day was well planned and our guide, Lucia, was extraordinary helpful.
The tour was incredible! Value for money and very informative and interesting. I'm really glad that I booked with Viator.
Pompeii is a trip most people have on their bucket list and it was an amazing trip but many miss out on going to Herculaneum which is a shame as i though it was so much more interesting. Herculaneaum is a smaller area and better preserved due to the circumstances that buried it in the first place and you get the better idea of how it functioned as a town. Brilliant trip, loved it
Great trip and guide, probably the best way to explore these ancient sites. The lunch was vey good too! Watch out for centipedes on the walls!
Our Pompei and Herculaneum day trip was great from the get go. The driver, Mario, was very entertaining. While we were on the way to pick up the other people in the group, he gave us a brief history of Naples and pointed out interesting sites and buildings. He even played Italian music which elevated the ambience of the tour. Our tour guide was very nice and knowledgeable. Great day trip!
Pompeii is MUCH bigger than I had expected, very interesting to learn their lives. The tour guide was knowledgable and added humour along the way which is always a winner. Herculaneum is smaller but still a must do
The tour was fascinating and the guide was great! It did feel a little rushed at Pompeii, but the place is huge and there is loads to see. Plenty of time to look around Herculaneum afterwards.
Our Pompeiii guide was fantastic. He was extremely knowledgable. It is obviously impossible to see all of the site in half a day but he chose some really interesting parts for us to see. The lunch that we were given in between visits was really nice. They are clearly mass producing to a budget but we really liked it. Pasta followed by the most gorgeous piece of roast beef with salad... lovely! Herculaneum was great. We were left to our own devices there. I'm not sure if this was because we were the only ones doing this bit of the trip, but we actually preferred that. We walked around at a leisurely pace and covered the whole site. I would highly recommend both of these trips.
