    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.

    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.

    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.

    Tour was suppose to be in English but was translated to multiple languages, which made a very slow tour in the heat, insufficient shade in these areas. Not enough free time at the end to explore the amphitheatre, brothel and the house that still had people.

    While I'm glad we did the tour, it was confusing that the bus guide was expected to say everything in 2 languages even though we were told it was an English speaking tour. The older gentleman who led the actual Pompeii tour was great even in the intense heat. Tight squeeze going back to Rome as we picked up additional passengers. VERY long day.

    We started at 7:30 am and didn’t get dropped off till 9:30 pm. They put two group together on one bus and had to drop off first group at water , then we went to Restaurant and Pompeii. We stopped and had lunch, food was terrible and service rude. Then went to Pompeii. Guide was old hard to understand plus we had to hear tour in English and Spanish. Then we had to go back to pick up people we dropped off at Marina and they added more people on bus. Bus was packed and air conditioning was not cold. They had to switch bus drivers because time frame was so long. Greenline bus tours was terrible. The only nice thing to say we thought bus drivers drove amazing in the tight streets n hills.

    We loved our visit to Pompei! The lunch was fantastic and the tour guide was very engaging. The bus tour around Naples was nice but hard to see everything from the bus. We didn’t think the visit to the cameo factory was necessary as not much information was given.

    Let me start by saying Rome Italy is a DIRTY CITY with Graffiti everywhere and trash. Not recommended to visit by us we will never go back. Now for the trip . The tour would not pick us up at the hotel, they said the hotel is out of there boundary area, so we had to take a taxi $20 euros to the tour office. The tour guide Female ( I never got her name) was terrible over the intercom on the bus nobody could understand what she was saying. while riding on the bus. We didn't know the bus was dropping off folks to take a ferry to Capri. just an unexpected stop but we also picked up another tour guide for the trip to Pompei. The tour in Pompei was fantastic a must see and do. The tour only covers only a small portion of the old city, I'm sure it would take all day to view the entire city or even two days and no rushing. After leaving the bus had to back to Naples to pickup those who went over to Capri, we sat on the bus for almost a hour waiting for those folks to get back. No water of food ( unless you brought your own) while sitting the whole time. Not Good. Once everyone was back on the bus the tour guide had the bus driver drive through the middle of town at rush hour, needless to say we were in stop and go traffic for another 45 minutes be getting out of Naples. Naples is another dirty city next to the ocean I wouldn't want to live there but that's me. The tour guide asked us where our hotel was so she could let the bus driver know where to drop us off at hotel, well this NEVER happened, they dropped us off at one of there tour offices. I asked if the office was open The tour guide said yes it was, Nope wrong again, we were stuck somewhere where we had no idea where we were, and at almost 10 pm at night. We walked around the corner and thankfully there was a hotel open ( everything else was closed because it was a Sunday and at night) so we could asked if they could call a taxi for us. They were very nice and they called a taxi for us, another $20 in Euros. I would NEVER recommend this tour to anybody .

    Great trip, tour guide very knowledgeable, lunch was very good, would have given 5 stars except for the stop at the cameo store.

    The place was great although the trip there was a little long at 3 hrs each way. The local guide in Pompeii started off on a good note but when it started to rain quite heavily at one stage, he insisted on continuing the walk in the rain. When most of the participants took shelter under some of the ruins, he got upset and decided to end the tour. He led us back to the museum area and gave us some instructions to return to the exit ourselves. He also forgot to pick up some of the other participants that were left behind.I felt that it was a very bad ending to the tour and his attitude was very unprofessional. He seem to have no regard for the needs of his customers. There was no instructions as to where and when we should meet our bus guide and we could almost have missed our coach returning to Rome as we could not find our bus guide at first. We gave feedback to the bus guide but she mentioned that there was nothing much she could do. In addition the lunch quality was below average and we were not warned about having to tip the singer during the lunch.
