Delivered on what it promised. A nice coach ride from the center of Rome to the Pompeii ruins and then organised entrance, with an informative two hour tour and then two-three hours spare to wander around. The experience is one not to be missed and free of the usual hucksterism of cameo shops and other shopping and food locations designed to part the eager traveler from his/her money.
It was a very long day. However, I would recommend this tour to anyone. The drive there and back was pleasant and scenic. You also get to listen to fun factoids.

Somewhat of a long day, but a great experience!
Marissa was our coordinator, and Maximo was our driver. Both were good. But of course the guide is what really makes the difference, and Dario was tops! He was happy, organized, very well informed, and made sure we all were having a good time. We learned a ton about the history and probably future of this remarkable site.
This is one of those places you don't want to go on your own because your eyes will skip right past many things that are fascinating. Like the ruts in the stones in the street, made by the wagons and carriages of the day wearing them down. Or like ancient graffiti on the walls. Or the significance of location and shape of individual homes and courtyards.
A good tour. Recommend.
Our bus guide, Gio, was excellent, both pleasant and well-informed. The office was open when I arrived a half hour ahead of the departure time. All was clear as to times, food, admission charge, and meeting place. Of course, Pompeii itself is wonderful and definitely worth a trip. I was totally satisfied with Viator.
Good..informative guide, Claudia, and the guide at the site was excellent ...very informative and a very droll sense of humour.
Very comfortable bus trip. I really enjoyed doing the guided tour in Pompeii as it is a very large area and I appreciated the history a lot more with the wonderful detailed information provided by the kind and knowledgable guide. I would definitely advise people to do this trip with the guided tour. You still have time afterwards to do a bit of wondering around and see more of the site.
We booked the optional guided tour, which proved to be a great choice. Marisa was our host on the bus, and she kept us up to date with how we were progressing and what we could see out of the window.
Our guide in Pompeii was Dario: we have had a guided tour of the city before 21 years ago, but Dario was excellent, finding a way to impart lots of facts, but still make it interesting enough to keep our teenagers' attention.
The guided tour took 2 hours, and we had a further 2 hours on our own, which we used to walk to the Amphitheatre even though it was 40 degrees! I would recommend it, the place is impressive!
The icing on the cake was that the bus dropped us back in Rome, not at the Enjoy Rome office, which is a bit out of the way, but at Termini, which meant we could get straight on the bus to our hotel.
Throughout the tour each step was clearly explained to us, with timings which were adhered to, so we always knew exactly where we were going and when we were being picked up. The trip may seem like a lot of money, but it was well worth it, and was the highlight of our break in Rome.
Very comfortable ride there and back. Great tour guides! Pompeii is absolutely fascinating.
You MUST do this trip! The information from the guide on the bus was so interesting as well as informative-Marris is outstanding and hope that you get her. Well organized, comfortable bus ride, absolutely top rated guide on our tour of Pompeii!
FANTASTIC! FABULOUS! OUTSTANDING!!!
A well-organised, informative trip. The journey was a pleasure and Pompeii itself was truly amazing. We had the upgraded tour, which turned out to be perfect - definitely one of the highlights of our trip to Rome. I'd highly recommend it.
Love it! Our guide was wonderful forgot her name Will use viator again!
It rained the entire day but the guide in the bus was wonderful and our English guide at Pompeii was vibrant and knowledgable
Excellent trip and guide. Everything went according to schedule. Comfortable bus and beautiful views.
The bus trip with EnjoyRome was very comfortable and our host and driver were great.
Our guide at Pompeii, Dario, was also fantastic and delivered the tour with humor and a great amount of knowledge.
Great and easy bus transfer to the sight- would recommend. Great guide too
We did the add-on guided tour, in addition to the bus. They were both beautifully organized and informative. Definitely the way to do it.
Perfect! Everything is really outstanding. Patricia, the guide on the bus, was fantastic.. Moreover, we also had a guided tour on site and, there also, our guide also named Patricia, was very knowledgeable.
we had a great relaxing drive down from Rome and a great day. Patricia our tour hostess was excellent. Vincenzo our guide through the ruins was very knowledgeable and clear and very entertaining! recommend the guided tour
The bus was comfortable, and the tour guide and driver were both friendly and thorough. Pompeii is a bit overwhelming to tour on your own in a half day, but they give you enough guidance to make the trip worth your while. I highly recommend this for people who are comfortable traveling independently and who don't mind not seeing all of Pompeii during their trip. Take a book with you it's a long enough drive!
Great experience. Would do again. Get the guided option. Our English speaking guide was knowledgeable and personable. Patricia our tour escort was punctual, precise and professional. She was always smiling on a very hot day. If you want a positive stress free trip to Pompeii from Rome this is it.
We liked everything about this day trip. The company seemed very well organized and the staff very friendly.
Great tour! Not only were the tour guides really friendly but I was travelling alone and made some great friends on the tour that day. They are the only tour that only goes to Pompeii from Rome, and they really let you make the most of the time you have to explore Pompeii. Highly recommend.
