  • This tour was amazing!

  • Tour guide was very knowledgeable and the archeological site was absolutely amazing!

  • This was a great day. From the pick up at the hotel to Pompeii then lunch recommendation and the climb up Mount Vesuvius, we were taken care of. The guide was knowledgable on the tour through Pompeii answering all our questions and even anticipating some. And our day guide was so helpful with overall questions about Naples. It was a great day, and didn't hurt that we had a perfect weather day too.

  • Everything ran smooth, on time, etc, but I would consider this a pretty basic tour. The Pompeii guide we had was nice, but I wouldn't say she provided much insight that you couldn't gather up yourself with a little research and touring through the grounds on your own is pretty easy, it is well laid out with provided maps. Found it difficult to hear her as the tour size was small, so they don't provide audio device which is good, but the site itself was packed with tourists and many of the larger groups with audio devices simply drowned her out several times. As for Mt. Vesuvius, awesome site and would recommend it, the guide here was much better, easy to hear and provided a lot of insight. Overall, was ok, but for the price I don't feel it was worth it. I could have easily arranged this myself for much less cost. There are all kinds of train/bus/car options to get to the main tourist points and the guide info was so-so. Nothing I couldn't look up myself in 20 minutes, so would likely do that next time. If you are in a pinch for time, I'd suggest it, otherwise, these 2 locations are very easy to arrange yourself in retrospect, at least in my opinion.

  • I booked a Spanish live-guide tour for small group. Instead of that, I got a large group with English guide and Spanish audio-guide. Since that was not what I booked, I decided not to book any more excursions by Viator. End-of-story.

  • Great chance to see Pompeii with guide to tell you about all the well kept secrets that aren't in the travel guides and to get access to the places you want to see. Hike up Mt Vesuvius was on your own, but great views of the crater and Naples below. Apparently there are guided tours from volcano expert at the top but we didn't see anyone at the meeting point or on our journey around. Wear shoes you don't mind getting dusty as the walk up to the crater is steep on gravel. My 'Keen' sandals were up to the job but very dirty afterwards. Loved the chance to grab a slice of pizza in Pompeii like a local, instead of having to do a big group - sit down - rushed lunch with all the other tourists. Exactly what I expected and plenty of time to enjoy both sites.

  • This tour was just ok. I'm not a complainer and Pompeii was truly an amazing site. Unfortunately we found out 18 hours prior to our tour departure that Mt. Vesuvius was closed and it had been closed for a month. More notice would have given us time to plan better. No headset for guide and hard to hear
