Francesca was an excellent guide who brought this ancient city back to life for us. Although very soft spoken at first, when asked to speak up she did so and then I was able to thoroughly enjoy my tour. She did a good job of trying to keep a large group together. We had adequate time to shop for souvenirs and public washrooms were pointed out to us. Overall a very enjoyable tour!

It took awhile to get going as our bus was picking up people from another ship and then came to our dock. I feel we waited too long - standing in hot, humid weather. Once we got inside Pompeii, our guide, Francesca, was very informative and took us on a efficient walking tour. I was glad we only did the half day tour.

There were 5 other cruise ships in at the same time.It appeared as if all the passengers had arrived at once, which somewhat spoiled the whole visit. You could not move for other visitors , and conflicting voices of the guides all around us made it difficult to concentrate. With so many people it was difficult to look at the place properly. I had attended a course on the city, I knew, understood the background and could recognise many of the places, buildings, and architecture. Without this prior knowledge it would have been a bit pointless. This was not the fault of the guide who was very good, knowledgeable and tried to keep us all together, an almost impossible task in this situation. It was too crowded to go into the museum, so we missed out on this. I would like to go back when it was less crowded.. Perhaps the authorities should have staggered the crowds entering to make it more pleasant for everyone.

We were taken to the site and had a small group with was a good start, We had a very young female guide who did a good job with the information she gave and keeping us together and moving as a group. It was hot and she did her best to provide shade when possible and answered all questions. It was crowded but we only waited a short time to move to the next site and we had a good tour.

Lady tour guide was excellent and provided plenty historic data . Time allotted was enough and proper. Walking tour required medium effort.
Reviewer: Yvonne Gibbons (Noseworthy)
Super knowledgeable tour guide. Some of the other guests in our group were pretty mean to our guide - and she remained super friendly despite that.
Reviewer: Frank F Miles
Enjoyed the tour but it was too long with not enough breaks

You really do get a feel for life in 79AD. We saw the houses of the rich along with the brothels and everything inbetween. The site is NOT wheelchair friendly as you are constantly going up a step or 2 or down. I have a bad knee and did fine. The exit is all steps but they do have handrails. TIP: If you use the free restrooms on top, bring your own toilet paper (it was empty). I am so glad that I took this excursion. March is the perfect time (not too hot or humid) but in the summer bring LOTS of water. I bought a book about the site from one of the vendors for 12 Euros. Don't miss this one!

Our guide met us at the Cruise Terminal (outside) in Naples and we proceeded by a small bus to Pompeii. Our guide was knowledgeable and very patient. She answered all questions and kept us on schedule. We returned to our ship on time as advertised. "Francy" was delightful! I would use this service again.

Our tour guide was great and really new the history and information about Pompeii. Our cruise was late and they rescheduled the tour for later in the day.
Our tour guide, Livio, was fabulous. He brought the city and history of Pompeii to life for everyone. He was funny and shared a great deal of knowledge. Thank you for a wonderful morning.
Our guide was amazing - he could walk backwards and talk at the same time. Beautiful fall weather but still quite crowded. Visits during the summer months may be difficult to maneuver. Must be able to walk uneven pavers. 1/2 day tour was perfect for us but there is still so much history to uncover in fhis buried city.
Reviewer: Kathy Green
Great tour. Convenient for those traveling by cruise ship. Tour guide was very knowledgeable and spoke English very well. Pompeii was much more expansive than I had imagined and very well preserved. Our guide allowed some time for buying refreshments and souvenirs after the tour. Great way to spend a half day when visiting Naples.
Reviewer: Janet Grange
Wonderful Tour. Excellent Excursion! Note: There is a lot of walking for this tour.

The early morning tour to Pompeii with our tour guide was a very informative and interesting experience. Our professional tour guide introduced us to the beautiful region and provided interesting facts. The group was fairly large but yet our tour guide was patience and helpful. We were given headset to use and that gave us a vision of the life of Pompeii and the reality of the ruins. I truly enjoyed Pompeii.
Reviewer: Veronica Baig
It was fascinating to walk through the remains of Pompei and to understand the extent of the civilization at the time before the catastrophe. There were so many insights into even the daily life of the citizens. The guide was excellent despite the difficulties of managing the tour with so many other people at the site.

We really enjoyed this excursion to Pompei. Amazing site. Definitely worth the trip. We learned so much. Our tour guide was really good. Lots of walking on stones. It was very hot. We appreciated the complimentary water the tour gave us. Would recommend.
Reviewer: Katherine Davis
This was an excellent excursion, and I learned a lot about the history of Pompeii. It's amazing that so much is still intact.
Reviewer: Lyline Medeiros
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.
Reviewer: Dianne Taylor
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.
Reviewer: Warren Jung
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.
Reviewer: Geoff Tinker

This was very well done, with an excellent tour guide.
Reviewer: Mary A Multari
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!
Reviewer: Vic Z
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.
