Interesting day in Pompeii
Nikki_C

We had an amazing trip to Pompeii in July. Even though it was about 100 degrees Fahrenheit that day, we really enjoyed learning about Pompeii. The guide was very knowledgeable about the history of Pompeii and the surrounding area. Great time!

2nd visit to Pompeii, the sheer extent of how big a city it was is amazing. The size of the volcano that destroyed it immense. Tour was very informative, Elisa, our guide was so knowledgable and we learnt new and interesting facts that put scale on the disaster. Thank you

What an amazing experience!
Alison_A

Pompei is amazing! Definitely an item ticked off the bucket list, equal to if not better than walking through the forum in Rome. The only sad bit was finding out at the end, just how little we'd actually seen, and the vast area we'd had no time to see. The one disappointment was the guide. She was clearly very knowledgeable about the place, but the group was very spread out, given the narrow streets and uneven footing, and she just went into her explanations of the features before making sure everyone was within earshot. We weren't the only ones having to ask other group members what the guide had said. We've been used to guides getting everyone together in previous guided tours.

The city is incredibly well persevered and is something you should definitely see while in italy. My wife and I found this tour 10 min before they departed Naples. By the time we got to the meeting point 2 or 3 min after booking, the guide already had our information and was ready for us. The guide spoke 5 languages fluently and was incredible. The trip was fun and I would recommend it for families, couples, or those traveling alone.

Lost in a crowd.
Pat_A

This tour would have rated a 5 star if not for a lack of communication. The guide at the ruins was excellent! Knowledgeable, personable and professional. In spite of huge crowds and extreme heat, we enjoyed the tour of the ruins immensely. The communication failures were related to transportation and initial arrival at tour site. First, the company told us to meet for pickup outside security at cruise port. Well there were two layers of security. We were early at the first, so not seeing anyone holding a sign with our name (as all our other tours did), we went to the second security (and we’re mobbed by taxi drivers) and still no sign. After rechecking everywhere, called the tour office. They told us driver had already left and they were sending someone. A loaded minibus arrived, with no external markings. Asked if this was tour, driver said yes, we got in. Arrived at tour site, the bus unloaded into a crowd - no directions as to where to go or departure time. Followed the crowd, for the rest of the tour. Never knew whether we were in right group or not. At end of the tour they announced buses would be coming at 2 (another 40 minutes) This was to a crowd of 50+ people in a crowded area. We’re we all part of same tour group? Unknown to me. I finally specifically asked if these were buses from my tour company. Got an affirmative. When the mini buses arrived, the crowd surged to board. Finally somone gave directions to assigned buses (cruise terminal). Once on the bus, the driver confirmed our names. This was the first time in the whole day I was acknowledged, by name, as being in right group. There is an easy fix for this tour to get 5 stars - communicate, communicate, communicate.

Great site, great archeological guide, but horrible tour company
kbadkins66
, Jul 2022
Pompeii is great!! The history of this place unfolds as you walk throughout the site, and our archeological tour guide, Monica, was super knowledgeable and personable. No problems with either the site or the guide at Pompeii. The tour company, however, is not great. The tour advertised as minibus (hence one would think small group) but instead picked us up in a full blown coach bus with all seats occupied. At the site we were divided into groups based on language. If you were a French or Spanish speaker no problem. But the English speakers were all herded together in a massive group which meant we could barely see what the guide was talking about nor could we hear her because the audio headset sucked. All- in-all, Pompeii, is a must if you’re in the area but go with a different, better organized company.

Heat and kid who sprained ankle which cut tour short. Sad. Would not recommend take a taxi over and hire private tour guide.

Excursion was great from beginning to end! Excellent communication from your company. Easy pickup. Our guide, Francesca was amazing! So cute, funny and knowledgeable!! Place was amazing! I would suggest more time in the museum and less time waiting to be picked up after tour. Other than that, wonderful

My Pompeii Experience

I was a little nervous about meeting our tour guide at the pick up point, but right on time our guide, Rita, arrived and put us at ease. We were in good hands! She told us a lot about the history of Pompeii and the surrounding area. I learned a lot! Our guide through the Pompeii ruins was Margarita. She was amazing! She was solicitous and attentive to everyone the group. The tour was definitely worth the cost. I did the tour in July, so it was HOT. Be prepared to bring/buy water and keep hydrated through a summer tour!

Horribly disorganized
laurensalerno88
, Jul 2022
Horribly disorganized! When I called for directions they refused to answer and text me instead. The tour itself was fine except the audio had a lot of static. When I mentioned this to the guide she was very snappy but I felt like it was just rubbing on her shirt. As the tour went on she became very sweet to my children, which I appreciated. The tour was informative and interesting. The ride home was interesting as it was incredibly disorganized. We were lucky we didn’t miss the bus. Furthermore, the tour said it was capped to 50 people and we had 85 people on our bus ride back to the ship. There are so many Pompeii tours and I would recommend choosing another one

History comes alive + great communication from company
Keith_O

History coming alive. Tour guide Francesca did a great job both communicating the plan for the tour and sharing the right amount of info while at Pompeii. And she was fun. And the air conditioned transport was excellent and very important! Our only issue was that the audio headsets were not great quality and so the sound was a little muffled and the volume a little low at times.

I would like to start by saying the guide Monica was truely amazing. She was fun and knew her information, very detailed. However, the transfers to the site (before we met Monica) and the return (after we left Monica) was very disorganised, late and unfriendly. Basically, Monica saved the day. I would do this tour again, just because of her. However, the components outside of her tour left us disappointed.
