    We were drop at what they call the second level. Immediately passing the guardian we were told be back for 15:45! Giving us only 45 minutes to climb the Vesuve? Had to run to get to the top, a do the same for the return, have to say glad that I did that, a great experience and a superb view from the top of the surrounding. My wife was not able to see that, and I consider her to be in shape.

    Loved seeing Mt. Vesuvius and I would highly recommend it, but not on this tour.
    We were to meet at noon and it was supposed to be a 4 hour tour. I was surprised when we met our guide and it was not our tour guide, but someone who was driving us to our tour. After picking us up, we waited 20 minutes for another couple who never did show up. We were driven to Pompeii where we met up with another guide. She walked us to a street full of vendors and told us we had a half hour until meeting the rest of the group. When we met up with the group we walked to a restaurant for lunch. As we were eating, a lot of other groups were coming in the restaurant. I had no idea that these were all Viator groups and we would have to wait for everyone to eat before we could leave. We were the first group seated so we sat there for over a half hour waiting for everyone else. We were then divided in to who was going where and was being returned where. Those of that were being returned to the port were put on a shuttle bus that was so small one person had to sit up front with the driver. Once at Mt. Vesuvius we were given just over an hour to explore. We arrived at the meeting spot and had to wait for the guide to show up. We got back to the port 35 minutes before we had to be back on board, but I had expected to be back 2 hours earlier. I think Viator should have let us know that we would be picked up by a driver and be driven to the tour as well as wait for other couples to be picked up. It was frustrating to spend time sitting in a restaurant and "shopping" and then being really rushed at Mt. Vesuvius, when that is all I wanted to see.

    "3 hr tour" is really 5 hrs. Be careful if you're on a cruise ship; you're screwed if there is traffic. 45 min on the mnt.
    Disorganized.
    3 1/2 hrs of the tour is spent sitting on a van, bus and walking aimlessly through a flea market of penis-shaped ashtrays and penis-shaped bottle openers.
    Never again Vile-Tour!

    I thoroughly enjoyed the Mt Vesuvius half-day trip. The bus trip up was great, the views and the sight of the old lava flows was amazing. It was peak season so there was lots of traffic on the way up and down resulting in a few bus stops. You have to hike the last stretch up to view the crater, so it is very important to be fairly fit and wear appropriate footwear - it is really well worth the effort. Alan, Australia.

    This tour is actually much longer than described in the itinerary and I am glad we didn't have anything else explained for the excursion. We had a very nice lunch and then had the opportunity to venture to the top of mt. Vesuvius. I would highly recommend this tour as well.
