My wife and I took this tour because we wanted to maximize our short time we had in Rome - this day trip is totally worth it! We had two fantastic tour guides, Andy and Francisco, who were both knowledgable and entertaining on the bus rides. Once in Pompeii, our group was paired with a local tour guide who gave us just the right amount of information on Pompeii. After the tour, we were treated to a pizza for lunch. Okay... Yes, there are better pizzas in Italy than what we were served, but it was still pretty good. After lunch our tour guides Andy and Francisco and our expert driver Antonio took us up Mt. Vesuvius where we got some excellent views of the surrounding sea and city. On the way back towards Rome, we were treated to some free samples of wine and limoncello, which were both excellent. I would highly recommend this tour because the guides were excellent, knowledgable, and also knew when to let people on the bus just relax and enjoy the ride.
Great Trip. I got out more than what I expected. Guides Andy and John where great.
Enrico in Pompei added a great View with his knowledge.
i would do it again.
Fantastic tour that included climbing Mt. Vesuvius...an unforgettable experience! The group was small, and our guide, Manuel was exceptional!
Loved the tour - guides were great - lunch was yummy....would do it again!
13 hours sounds like a long trip for 3 children 9 and 11, but they really enjoyed it. The bus stops after 1 1/2 hours both ways, providing a nice break. Walking up Vesuvius was a wonderful experience - especially for my husband, a geology fan. Pompeii was very interesting. We were glad we took this tour.
I had a wonderful tour to Pompeii and Mt Vesuvius. The trip was well organised the the tour guides were exemplary in their knowledge and enthusiasm to make sure we had an enjoyable and engaging tour. Alessandra the allocated guide for our group was fantastic. Loved Pompeii and all it had to offer, the tour guide who showed us around Pompeii brought to life what we were seeing through her knowledge and the way she shared that with us. It was nice to have a break for lunch in a restaurant. The walk up Vesuvius to the top was a good hard walk with a breathtaking reward at the top. On the trip back to Rome our tour guides continued to engage with us and checked to see if we needed any assistance on our return to Rome. City Wonders provided a tour that was well worth the money, I highly recommend the trip.

Our trip to Pompeii was a highlight of our visit to Rome. The guides who spent the day with us, and the Neapolitan guide who joined us for Pompeii itself, were all excellent. The trip was very well organized, including an excellent pizza lunch at a real, sit-down restaurant that was ready to receive 100 guests all at once. The city of Pompeii was extensively excavated and fascinating. Hiking up Mt. Vesuvius on a hot day was exhausting but worth the effort!
This was a great tour...starting in Rome, climbing Mt. Vesuvius and then of course Pompeii! We couldn't have asked for anything better. The guides were knowledgeable and made the day one of our vacation highlights! Thanks
our tour guides for the day Andy and Claudia were amazing, lots of superb information, not just regarding our trip for that day, but lots of other information all about the city of Rome. Very friendly and welcomming.
With out a doubt the best tour you could book. Was amazing from start to finish. First the bus journey down to Pompeii was long but the tour guides gave us till the first stop to get some sleep due to the early start which was nice. The second leg of the journey they talked to us about the surrounding area the history and also the plan for the day. Mt Vesuvius incredible the climb up was tough but the views were amazing, we didn't feel rushed or pressured to hurry back so gave us plenty of time to get up there which was nice as my partner suffers from a heart problems so she didn't have to rush and make herself ill. From there the lunch was nice getting to try pizza from Naples the place where it came from.
Pompeii was the highlight seeing the ruins and getting a very informative guide who let us explore and gave us lots information. We again weren't rushed about or made to hurry along they let us go at our pace and enough it. And lastly the bus ride back to Rome was nice before entering the city again the guides came round the bus and talked to us individually and asked us if we needed any advice or tips about Rome. This I felt was a nice touch as we asked about restaurant suggestions they had along with things to do that aren't on guide books and they gave us there local knowledge. Would recommend to anyone that wan't to experience what can only be described as a breath taking tour. Thanks Sara for the tour.
This was a great tour. Fascinating to see what could be excavated after the devastating volcanic eruption. The view from Mt. Vesuvius was beautiful--make sure you do the hike to the top.
a wondeful experiencewith excellent guides. This is my seconde year using your services. Mnetion was made about a ducsout but no code was provided on the fan distributed. Please follow thrufor future events Thank youi
We booked this day trip from Rome to Pompeii and everything from start to finish went exactly to plan. It was a long day trip but worth it, the coach was very comfortable, the guides who accompanied us from start to finish very informative with good sense of humour. Rest breaks and quiet time on the coach made the long journey pleasant. We were passed to a local guide on arrival at Pompeii whose knowledge brought the history of the place alive. We chose to book with Viator following successful trips with them in Venice a few years ago and have this evening just booked a tour with them for our forthcoming trip to Vienna. I feel confident booking with Viator through my past experience and can highly recommend them.
Great tour - definitely worth the long day trip from Rome. Our guides Antonina and Luca were very professional and very knowledgeable.

Fantastic. Well planned and executed. Going to the top of the volcano and looking down on everything was surreal. The only negative was the advice for dinner that evening, which didn't turn out well Gusto. I highly recommend this trip!
The tour was well structured and the correlation of the visits were great. The staff were great and very considerate to their customers, who were well looked after.
Amazing guides: Ana and Sara. Antonio: very good busdriver! Two groups together in one bus; no problem at all. It rained and Vesuvius crater was closed down when we got there (we got part of the money back). Lunch: good! Pompeii amazing!!! Very recommendable tour!! Try the limoncello (missed this).
Pompeii is a must see. One gets a much fuller picture of how the Romans lived than from the relics in Rome itself. The guides were all excellent and helpful. The views from Vesuvius were stunning.
The meeting point was clear and the guides were on time and organised. We heard lots of interesting facts on the bus to Pompeii and we were happy to just sit back and relax - tour started early to fit everything in. Our guide in Pompeii was excellent. It was crowded and hot, but it was easy to hear and follow our guide. Lunch was ok - not the best I've had, but good enough. The walk up Mt Vesuvius was great - I loved the fact that we could walk at our own pace, within the guide times given by the guides. The trip back was again a highlight with lots of interesting facts. Our guides were very helpful in general about Rome and what to do. My two teenagers loved it as well.
Both of our tour guides did a great job, and they were very knowledgeable in history. The hike was brief but challenging, and the views at the top definitely worth it.
Kylie is a great guide......outstanding day trip, worth the time
Really enjoyed the Day trip to Pompeii from Rome. Our guide, Luca, was incredibly knowledgeable and gave some great insight into Pompeii, Mt Vesuvius, Roman Culture, history and food. The day was paced well considering we included two rest stops, a hike up Mt Vesuvius, pizza for lunch and 2 hours at Pompei Ruins. If you are looking for a comfortable and convenient way to see Pompeii from Rome, highly recommend the tour. However, if you would like to spend more than 2 hours at Pompeii, would suggest you look at another tour as felt there was so much more to see at Pompeii but was a good highlights tour.
