    The tour was amazing. We went to Naples for a while, and then to Pompeii and saw all of the ancient ruins. Our guide, Eleonora (bless her heart), was friendly, charismatic, and responsible. Couldn't have asked for anyone better. Her colleague, Richard, was also very kind and helpful. The guy who led us around Naples and Pompeii, Guido, was amazing and funny. Our first bus driver, Luca, was safe and professional. However, this is where the bad part comes in. The second bus driver, Daniel, was rude, reckless, and incompetent. He didn't speak a lick of English, which made it impossible to communicate. We were supposed to be dropped off at our hotel around 8:30 p.m. (20:30), but we didn't arrive for another two hours. Daniel did not ever stop near our hotel, had to ask for directions on at least 4 separate occasions, and nearly took out some stop lights because he turned onto a narrow road. He then begins driving to what was apparently the final stop, which was a hotel all the way out near Fiumicino Intl. airport. First of all, he didn't even know how to get there, secondly, when he saw that we were still on the bus, he tried to kick us off. He claimed that he stopped near where we were staying (totally false), and argued that he was supposed to drop us off at a certain plaza. He then called his boss, who then reaffirmed that he was wrong. Finally, he goes back to his seat and drives back to Old Rome, but doesn't even drop us off at the right hotel. We got off anyway because we couldn't stand his attitude or idiocy. We took a cab and got there in 5 minutes. Long story short: Great tour, amazing leader (Elle), fun guide (Guido), and good driver (Luca). Daniel was a horrible driver with a bad attitude. He needs to be fired. If it weren't for him, my review would be 5 stars, but unfortunately, that experience brought the rating down.

    This is an a tour to do. An absolute must. Guides were decent. Sights were amazing. Only bad part of the whole tour is two hours in Pompeii is just not enough but it is a good taste.

    This was absolutely the worst tour I've taken. It was supposed to be bilingual, but it was very clear the guide was more comfortable speaking Spanish because only about 20 percent of the tour was in English. So we were just wondering around looking at stuff but had no idea what we were looking at. And they made us stop for what seemed like forever at a store just for shopping. Don't waste your time or money on this. It was my least favorite day on our trip.

    We started out in Rome with a great guide. In Nopales the guilds changed to Guido who’s English and Spanish was not comprehensible his choice of words lack of vocabulary made it very difficult to understand. We booked and English speaking tour but it was also translated into spanish. This was unfair to both languages because if we could have understood our guild we missed out on half a tours worth of information because it was beings translated to another language. The
    tour was pointless because we could not understand what he was saying in either language. It would have been better to get the audio guild from Pompei and go at our own pace. We also made wasted a lot time driving around Napoles with Guido not understand what we were seeing or why. The weird stop the Jewlery store was much less of a demonstration on the traditional craftsmanship then a sales opportunity with less then personable sales staff. This was an 13 hour waste of time and money, we missed out really learning the fascinating history of Naples and Pompei! I only hope we have the opportunity to return to Italy to try again.

    I and my family had a great experience and enjoyed a day trip to pompileii from Rome. Tour leader Alvirno and Pompeii local tour guide, Guido made the day very interesting with his deep knowledge on pompeii and Nepoli's history and communication in english. The perfect timing of event schedule and delicious Lunch made our day. I will use GLT for my trips in future.

    An absolutely wonderful trip and everything you'd expect! Fascinating and emotional all in one. Long trip from Rome but worth it. Lunch was great and bus comfortable. The only draw back to the excursion was the "bus tour of Naples." You can't really see anything from a moving bus and it left us with a very bad impression of Naples. Trashy, congested, dirty...not, I'm sure what Naples would want. Next time, go to the museum so people can see more Pompeii artifacts.

    Absolutely loved Pompeii. wish we had more time there . Our guide Rihanne was fantastic and very knowledgable. Took a tour with City Walks.

    We were traveling or waiting for the people who had gone to Capri for 10 out of the 12 hours were on the tour. The lunch was good but the walk to the restaurant was very far. The cameo shop was a waste of time. The actual 2 hours in Pompeii were fine and our guide was really good.
