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.
Wonderful trip and great organization. We loved the ruins and had a great time
Great day with 4 hours to visit Pompeii which was plenty of time. The host and bus driver were polite and provided us with information as necessary. It was nice to not have to worry about making our way there and back on public transport, and the bus was nice and air conditioned.
Good tour but the guide did not take us to the place i wanted to see
A great way to see Pompeii at your own pace. It was nice to just be driven there in an air-conditioned bus and back. It was a long day, but worth it.
Everything was perfect, the bus, bus driver, coordinator and tour guide!
This was one of our favorite trips while in Italy! We thoroughly enjoyed Pompeii. The shuttle bus was so comfortable and roomy, the leader on the bus was funny, happy and knowledgeable and made the bus trip fun. Our tour guide in Pompeii was just great and gave us so much info, all while being jovial and funny. We loved this trip so much!
We were very happy with our tour: both Patricia on the bus and Vincenzo our guide at Pompeii. Both had great humour and charm, we had lovely day. We left knowing so much more than when we arrived.
