Viator is a GREAT company. As promised, they picked us up on TIME in our Sorrento hotel and drove us to POMPEII. This is a MUST do! NOT TO BE MISSED. Take the guided tour you will not regret it. Our tour guide Maria was the BEST! If you do not take this guided tour you will just be looking at a pile of rocks. This tour was so interesting and worth every penny. Maria was very knowledgeable. Excellent experience. Hot wear comfy shoes and a hat. Take water.

If you're looking for a comprehensive overview of Pompeii and don't want to spend hours baking in the sun, this is the tour for you! Our guide, Alissa was incredibly informative and had so many hilarious anecdotes and stories, my husband, who has done a longer tour of Pompeii in the past said this one was miles above it in terms of quality. The driver service from Sorrento was also very professional and prompt. Definitely the right way to see Pompeii!

Our guide was great Alisa ... SP?! She speaks 5 languages and was very passionate in telling the stories of what went on there and had my wife and I and our two teens totally engrossed. She kept the whole tour lighthearted as well and did not drone on and on about all of the facts/history. We enjoyed it very much! Very conscientious about trying to keep the group in the shade, too, as it was very hot.

Really enjoyed the tour of Pompeii. So many sites to see and so much history to contemplate. Our guide made the tour even more interesting with her insights and anecdotes. Could never have understood the full impact of all the events without the tour.
