  • Pompeii and Mount Vesuvius were stunningly beautiful. Our tour guide was very friendly and informative. Tour would have been better if there were less people because squeezing that many people in at Pompeii and still hear what she had to say.

  • Great trip

  • Another long day, with the majority of the bus speaking English, but we had to endure 3 other languages explaining everything. This was another lunch included tour, but hopefully you brought some snacks on your own, because the lunch was pizza and it wasn't that good, but they brought one pizza to feed 8 people at our table, and everyone got a bottle of water.

    My biggest complaint here is the final journey up the mountain to Vesuvius. Before we reached the drop off point, we were told it would cost an additional 10 euros per person to walk up to the crater's rim for the full effect. Now, to be fair, it was explained in the description that most people could walk it, but it might be difficult for some. There was never any mention of an additional fee for the privilege of walking up there, and that fee was collected BEFORE the bus reached a point where you could see whether you might want to attempt the climb. The four in my group paid the 40 euros, as did most of the bus load. To make a long story short, we are older adults, in good physical condition, and we didn't make it a 5th of the way up, mostly due to altitude and the rocky surface which made you exert yourself a lot to get traction. Many people did not make it anywhere near the top, old and young alike. The tour company probably made a fortune on that excursion! Many complained, but to no avail. They had our money.

    I will never use Viator again for anything and wouldn't recommend them to anyone in the future. -5 Stars

  • Overall, I liked the tour. But, I felt that it was incredibly rushed. Barely had any free time at the top of Mount Vesuvius, it took longer to hike up and down that the free time to enjoy the view. Then after 2 hours walking through the ruins of Pompeii, had ZERO time to browse the stands for trinkets. We seemed to arrive incredibly early back to our apartment, which leads me to believe that for some reason, the tour guide was in a rush to get through it all...considering that it was supposed to be a full-day tour.
    But on a good note-despite us staying in an apartment rental, pickup was still provided to a more central location for us to meet the bus, instead of us having to figure it out on our own.

  • Excellent trip made all the more beneficial with our guide Michael who was clearly very knowledgeable particularly about Pompeii.

  • Really enjoyable trip - our guide was very knowledgeable and made the trip very interesting - would definitely recommend climbing Mount Vesuvius too - worth it when you reach the top. Pompeii is amazing - trip overall was excellent value for money and a great experience.

  • We started the trip climbing Mt. Vesuvius. It was quite a climb but well worth it. The view of Naples and the sea was breathtaking. The guide was well informed about Pompeii and we only had time for the highlights. The was two small pieces of pizza which was plain and soggy. A better lunch would have been nice.

  • We considered driving the Amalfi Coast but used a private tour instead. Alesandro picked us up at our Sorrento hotel and provided an incredible day. He was knowlegable about the area, suggesting things and places that we might enjoy. He was the very professional and alowed us to enjoy the day. Do it!

  • This was a well organised tour with a very funny and friendly guide. We obviously had to pick up quite a few people along the way so it took us a long time to get to Mount Vesuvius. We got allocated a long time to explore the Volcano, I would recommend a jumper and trainers. It was colder than we thought it would be! We had a nice little pizza lunch near Pompeii but I would bring cash for more refreshments as you are out all day. We were given headphones so we could hear our guide clearly which definitely helped as there were lots of groups as you can imagine. I felt we spent enough time looking around and it really is a fascinating place.

    I would definitely recommend, something not to be missed!

  • The guide was totally amazing ! Great experience ! I recommend it !
