UNBELIEVABLY cool way to see Pompeii! First you get an overview of a location from an archaeologist-trained guide, then you see and hear via very comfortable headsets and earplugs a 3D virtual reality rending of how the sight looked and functioned, along with characters that acknowledge your presence!!!, and THEN you get to walk through the rooms of what you had just witnessed in 3D!! The guides were fantastic, very friendly, extremely knowledgeable and answered every question fully! I am a history teacher and still I learned a LOT. On this thoroughly enjoyable tour! VERY highly recommended!!
The Only Way To See Pompeii!!! It was a blast to learn about the ancient city, but then we were able to see it, and felt completely surrounded by it. You have 360 degree view with the headsets on, but do not walk with it on because you can not see.
Our are guide was truly outstanding. I had to pinch myself as I couldn't believe the luck of finding someone so knowledgable to guide my children and I though this historical masterpiece. I had an 8 yr old as well as two teenagers, so a mixed bag of intellectual thresholds and we were all truly engaged/entertained throughout the tour. The virtual reality glasses were a superb compliment to the private guide's explanations.
Great tour and the virtual reality headsets added a great insight into how Pompeii used to be before the eruption. Guide was very knowledgeable and his relaxed manner and humour made the tour very enjoyable
Brilliant tour using Samsung gear VR 360 headsets. Gives you a really good idea of the scale and colour of how Pompeii used to be.
So you walk around with a really knowledgeable guide, who is an working archaeologist who talks you through the areas, history, buildings etc. so you look at the ruins then put the headset on and get the virtual reality show of how it used to be with a commentary on the history or workings of that building.
It really brings it to life and was great to keep my teenage boys entertained on what could otherwise have been a very 'dry' tour.
Sergio was a great guide and we saw so much in a relatively short time. I liked his explanations better than the videos in the headsets. The virtual reality headsets helped to imagine the buildings and colors. The animation of people was rather clunky and not as interesting to me. It is impotant to understand where to meet because the people at the tour company do not know anything about this tour. The assistants were early to meet us outside the tour company.
