Our Guide Teresa was excellent! Great amount of time in each location with a break for lunch in the middle. This tour definitely exceeded my expectations!

Very informative tour. Our guide Roberta was excellent. She was very informative and pleasant. Her singing of familiar Italian songs and asking the tour members to join in the singing made the trip especially enjoyable.

Loved this tour. Bus was v comfy, tour guide was amazing. She was so informative and friendly. Plenty of time in both places. We didn't bother signing up for the optional lunch on the day as it felt a bit like get the tourists in and get them out, but couldn't fault the actual trip. Viator has delivered yet again.

This was a long day but well worth it! Our guide Lia and driver Salvatore helped us have a truly memorable experience. There were about 36 of us on this trip. We received lanyards to wear for our day so that we could be identified and had Lias phone number on if we got separated or wanted to branch off for a bit and do our own thing which a couple in our party did. From the start of the trip Lia used the microphone to tell us all about the itinerary of the day and the history of the regions as we passed through. We went straight to Mount Vesuvius where we gave her the admission money on the coach and she went ahead and paid for us as one group which saved all the hassle of paying individually at the gate the website details clearly said which excursions needed separate payment so there were no surprises on our account today. The trek up and down took about an hour so the timings worked out well. We had fabulous views on this October warm day. I only needed shorts and t-shirt but was glad of the sturdy trainers I wore as several people were sliding and slipping in their poorly-chosen footwear. From here we went to the restaurant in the centre of modern Pompeii. Again, this was advertised on the website so it was no surprise. There was no obligation to come in a few decided to go off and meet us again in one hour but we were happy with the value on offer 14 for a selection of 6 possible meals including 1 drink and 1 pudding. The rest of the afternoon was exploring Pompeii. Lia again collected our money and paid for us in one group. Saved loads of time. We all wore earphones as she talked to us through the ruins with her radio mic. Without this we would not have a clue about what we were looking at as there are hardly any explanation signs around the city. We spent 2 hours and it was enough in the heat even in October! Going on an organised tour was so much worth the effort and we thank Lia for her insights.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended September 2017

best tour of Pompeii i've been on. the tour guide i think her name was Luisa had SO MUCH information about every single place we visited in this ruined town. the trip to Mt Vesuvius is a curvy one. be sure to take motion sickness meds if you suffer from that. Once you get up there the view is beautiful. Before you book mt vesuvius, just know that the trail taking you up to the top is NOT easy. there are men that will rent you walking sticks and just ask for a donation when you come back down. it's very helpful if you're not in great shape. as i said, it's not easy, it's basically a constant uphill incline the entire time. You definitely feel accomplished once you get to the top, and the view is like nothing else, but it is a hike for sure. I would highly recommend this tour, however, you get your moneys worth FOR SURE!
