This tour was our first port adventure. We had a bit of delay disembarking our cruise ship. When we got to the meeting place, the van just left. There was a total of 7 people from the same cruise ship who were left behind. Good thing there was a kind taxi driver who helped us and found a driver from same excursion company. He loaded us in his van, made some phone calls and then we were transferred to the van that would take us to Pompeii. Pompeii is a very interesting place. Culture and history is very evident in the ruins. Our tour guide is very knowledgeable. She gave us a lot of information about the place. Fun facts and tiny details. The weather was crazy that day. It was hot at first then it rained and sun came up again and rained again. But tourists didn't mind. The place was amazing. The tour entails a lot of walking so be sure to wear comfortable sturdy shoes.

We really enjoyed the tour. The tour guide was very knowledgeable and easy to understand. The tour did not include the entry fee to the ruins so I believe it would be better to do that in the future so the guide did not have to collect money and go to a special location to purchase tickets.

Overall tour was thorough, detailed and you get value for your money. We had a bit of difficulty understanding the tour guide sometimes because of her accent but she patiently explained herself when needed. The whole tour was 4 1/2 hrs but the actual time spent walking around the site was approximately 2 hrs. We got a good taste of what life was like during those ancient times. The weather was quite warm and the cobblestone was uneven making walking a bit tricky at times.
Informative tour guide.
We had the best guide!! Bring umbrella for shade. Make sure you wear comfortable shoes, ground is not even in several places. We are all connected to headphones so you don't miss a thing. The tour is about 2 full hours not including the drive to get there and wait to get hooked up. Enjoyed the Cameo store where we waited for our guide. Great demo on how they make jewellery from a seashell. The history on Pompeii was fascinating with excellent explanation on how things were. Really worth seeing to appreciate our life even more. They give you 1 bottle of water. Make sure you bring some too.

Once off the ship, It was a bit chaotic, but we found It was easy to find our guide, you just had to look for the signs! We rode in a comfortable bus, and were even given a hat and a bottle of water. Once we arrived in Pompeii, we joined a larger group and followed the tour guide with audio sets. There was plenty of time for pictures and exploring. We really enjoyed it! Our guide, Laura was friendly and even offered help finding pizza once back in Naples.

The organisation was good and the tour left on time in a clean and comfortable vehicle. The guide at Pompei was knowledgable and friendly. The tour was good value and well worth the effort

Our excursion day trip to Pompeii was amazing. Way more than I expected, due mainly to our wonderful guide, Miguel. He was so interested that we see everything at Pompeii and enjoy it as much as he does! Had a great, memorable day - exhausting but wonderful!

Just enough time in Pompeii
Pompeii is one of those very unique places in the entire world. The preservation and remains of the city make it appear like everybody just got up to leave the day of destruction and never came back. And of course thats what happened. It was fascinating insight into a time that looks surprisingly like today. I would have liked to look around a bit longer, but part of the trip involved the option of driving down to Amalfi, which we chose not to do due to the curvy roads. Would definitely do this again.
