Loved the tour. It's a very long day but full of gorgeous scenery, history and good food. Definitely recommend it.
Excellent tour we would recommend this to everyone. Our tour guide was amazing, he truly enjoyed his job and the history and stories he told made the trip exciting. Thankyou
excellent tour fantastic views of the Bay of Naples walking up Mount Vesuvius. Enjoyed the neapolitan pizza.We loved Pompeii which was a great finish to this great tour.
We just got back from the Vesuvious and Pompei tour and we have to say that it was an extraordinary experience and we owe it to our tour guides. We went with a group of about 16 people and it was with Demitri and Robert. Both were incredibly knowledgeable, but most importantly they were captivating story tellers. On the bus, no one slept but listened astutely and laughed with gusto at the many stories, history, and anecdotes. On the way to Vesuvius there was a car accident a few Km ahead and we lost about an hour in traffic. To make up for it, the tour guides called our lunch restaurant ahead to place our order so that we can be on schedule and yet see the attractions that we wanted to see. They could have simply cut the time out of one of the attractions but instead they came up with a solution. I feel like I would travel with their company city wonders again. As for the attractions they are breath taking. The hike up Mount Vesuvius is gorgeous and filled with Vistas and picture opportunities. How often does one get to climb a volcano? It was a once in a lifetime experience. We were worried about going in mid November to Vesuvius as we read countless stories about adverse weather but it was clear, about 60 degrees, which made it perfect for the walk up. Its 20-30 minutes to the crater if you are in average shape, yes round is a shape . Pompei was really interesting, it was a lot bigger than I expected and so well preserved. You really get a sense of what an ancient city was like. The tourguide we had Enzo was intriguing as well. He took us back to a time whether the ancient city of pompei was bustling with life while we walked and admired the well preserved city.
The guide, Andy, was fantastic and informative. We had plenty of opportunities to take photos and take in the views. The itinerary was great - we did not feel rushed. Saw much more with the tour than would have managed by myself. Definitely doing a City Wonders Tour again! :
Can and #39;t say enough about this one. Our guides Kylie and Dimitry did an great job preparing us for the visit with an informative and entertaining history lesson. The local guide at Pompeii was a hoot. A word of caution about Vesuvius, it and #39;s a steep climb but the good thing is the climb isn and #39;t required.
My wife, son and I had a great day out. It was fascinating to learn about Pompeii and our tour guide Enzo was extremely engaging the whole time we were there. The afternoon spent climbing Vesuvius was breath taking in more ways than one and all in all it was an unforgettable experience. I'm sure it won't be for everyone, but if you're interested in the subject matter as we were, you'll find going with a good tour guide is the best way to experience it.
This tour was fantastic! Our tour guide Anna was incredible. So friendly and funny. She even took the time at the end of the trip to come and talk to each one of us on the bus to answer personal questions. The hike to the top of Mount Vesuvius was amazing. It's steep, but not very far, so almost anyone would be able to do it. Our tour guide at Pompeii, Enzo, was really wonderful. He provided just enough information, but also periodically gave us free time to explore and take pictures. We were lucky that we went on a day that wasn't very busy and the weather was perfect Nov 16, 2016. I would definitely recommend this day trip to anyone visiting Rome. It was the highlight of our trip!!!
Anna was a thoroughly entertaining and informative guide who really made this trip fabulous with her great sense of humour. this was further complimented by our wonderful bus driver Masimo and Enzo the very knowledgeable guide at Pompeii - a tour with a great pace and a wonderful way to experience the history of ancient times - would highly recommend
It was an amazing experience. I just love Pompeii. I really recommend Viator, very professional, experienced guides, a lot of interesting information.
Our trip to Pompeii was wonderful. The guide was fantastic and we learned so much. We could not have asked for a nicer day. I would highly recommend this trip.
Andy was our guide and did an outstanding job! Very comfortable bus, good pizza and he was willing to help us in our tour if we had any questions. I enjoyed seeing Pompeii and all it had to offer. Vesuvius was okay but the view from the second stop was gorgeous! This trip was worth it!
Really interesting site and one not to be missed. Our tour guides and driver were lovely and highly informative. The site of Pompeii is mind blowing and I look forward to a future time when I can visit it again.
Our tour guides were Robert and Laura. They made the day great fun for everyone a 52 seater bus. Registration is at 7.30 and the bus leaves at 7.45. There is a 15 min stop at 9.00 and I suggest you bring your breakfast with you to eat at this stop as there isn't enough time for everyone to queue and buy breakfast. The guides provide information on the way but also allow 1 hour for uninterrupted sleep. The bus arrives at Pompei at 11.15 and you get a 2 hour guided tour of the site. It's an amazing place, you could probably do with 1 hour extra there we get a tour of the site but have no time to go into the tourist museum there but this day tour only allows for 2 hours due to time constraints. Pompei is very warm and sunny so do bring suncream! Lunch is after the Pompei tour in a nearby restaurant and is a choice of 3 pizzas, marghuerita, ham and cheese or vegetarian. Everyone really enjoyed this-it is a tasty neopolitan pizza! After lunch the bus brings you up a piece of Mount Vesuvius and you can then hike up the rest. The hike is a steep incline but most of our tour group made it all the way to the top - definitely try as the views of the bay of Naples from the top are magnificent! The bus trip back is made fun by the guides and they also give advice of other tours to do while in Rome. The bus stops on the way home for 20 mins again and we arrived back in Rome at 20.45. You do have to go for a meal then in Rome though as you will be starving again but Robert gives excellent advice on the best places to eat. Do listen to and take in his advice as we did and we certainly were glad - we got superb food and superb gelato in comparison to where we had been getting it before his advice. I would highly recommend this tour to everyone and definitely those who enjoy history and geography.
Fantastic day out,tour guides Mara and Andrew were so friendly,very informative,highly recommend although the Mt Vesuvius was covered in cloud,but worth the trek.
Our guide, Amanda, had fabulous tidbits of information to offer as we traveled to Mt. Vesuvius. After visiting Pompeii we headed back to Rome and were offered a lovely tasting of Limoncello! Yum!
An excellent tour in every way. Our guides Beccy and Ahmed were so nice and brilliant at what they do. They were enthusiastic, friendly and couldn't do enough for us. I would recommend this tour to everyone!
Great experience! The bus was comfortable, we had a nice pit stop going and coming to grab a snack. The two guides had stories to share and their interplay and exchanges were fun. The anecdotes offered were funny and made it more interesting.
Great tour of pompeii and vesuvius we had really good guides full of information comfortable travel well worth the money would definitely do it again
OUR GUIDE ANDY WAS FABULOUS! SO WAS THE REST OF HIS CREW! TOUR WAS AMAZING and DEFINITELY WILL BOOK WITH CITY WONDERS NEXT TIME I'M IN ROME AND WILL REQUEST TO HAVE ANDY AGAIN!
