A Day in Pompeii and Capri
A bit rushed - but nice combo .
July 17, 2023
We had the amazing Sandra as our tour guide - she was one of the best of our entire Europe trip. The guide we were handed over to at the Pompei visit wasn’t that great though - very difficult to hear, we weren’t provided head sets & with the busy nature of the ruins it was both hard to hear him over the other visitors plus his English wasn’t the best. The Pompei part of the tour was extremely rushed. But a good day out - full credit to Sandra for being absolutely amazing & well organized so we could make the most of Capri :)
Good overview of both sites

Capri was nice but we spent to much time there which shortened our visit to Pompeii. Also we didn't really stop for lunch and the line for the bathroom was extremely long which delayed us more. We had to walk a distance to get to Pompeii from the bus. The tour of Pompeii was good considering the hordes of people there. Time, however, prevented us from time in the museum. I would recommend doing only one site a day.

We had a great time in both places but you really could spend a whole day in each venue. Our guide was informative, energetic and personable. You will really enjoy the tour!

Loved our tour of Capri and Pompeii. Tour was great - and leader was very knowledgeable. Would really want to go back to both these places some day. A long day, lots to see, but very worth it.

A great way to see two unique areas in 1 day

Easy trip to Capri and nice walking tour; must see the garden on top of the Capri a quick lunch and dip in the ocean next to the port is all time allowed. Would have liked to spend time in Anacapri if tour was longer. No time for the Blue Grotto; some did an island tour via boat. Pompeii was fascinating and yet only able to explore a sampling of this ancient city. Got lucky with the weather as a storm was coming in (Aug). Cloud cover & a breeze really made the trip pleasant. There is not much in the way of shade so it could have been blistering hot. Our guide was knowledgeable and pleasant . We had a couple of people on the tour that weren't flexible and hassled the guide and managed the situation professionally. If you want an overview of two places this is the tour for you. If you really want to experience one or the other in more depth choose one or the other individual tours. I'd go and see both again if I had two days in Naples. If only one day I would do Capri.

Fascinating and Personalized Trip

Capri was crowded and busy as expected. Do visit the tropical garden - worthy views. Pompeii trip was very informative and presented a well preserved glimpse back in ancient history.

Absolutely an excellent tour. Time was well managed and the guide extremely knowledgeable and friendly. We would highly recommend it to others. The only two things I would suggest for improvement are 1) please warn people more of the extensive walking. We had a few people in our group who could barely walk anyway and delayed the whole group all day. 2) better communication or directions to find the correct guide / bus when you get off the ship.

Beautiful trip to Capri & Amazing Pompeii!!
May 21, 2018
Our tour guide, Rosela, was incredible! She told us so many interesting things about Capri and Pompeii. We did Capri first so the weather was nicer - she was fun to talk to, and had lots of fun acecdotes about the island. She arranged a boat tour for those of us who wanted during free time on Capri, and even got us a to-go lunch since we wouldn't have time to sit down & eat (incredible Caprese sandwiches!). She was thoughtful and fun - we thoroughly enjoyed the day. Pompeii was incredible...she taught us lots about the ruins and people who lived there. We could have easily spent a whole day in both places, but it was terrific to have the opportunity to see both!

An Excellent Day with Mafalda!
October 24, 2017
Mafalda was our tour guide and she simply went "above & beyond!" Capri was absolutely gorgeous on a clear, sunny day. She gave us a great walking tour, and gave us some free time as well (over 90 minutes). This gave us time to take boat tour around the island (1 hour) -- which Mafalda arranged for us (the only couple who decided to do this, I might add --- well worth it!!). Then on to Pompeii and all of its history. There too, Mafalda arranged for an archaeological historian expert to guide us through the ruins -- an absolutely invaluable "add" to the experience. All in all, a tour WELL worth it (and ask for Mafalda!)

Mafalda was fantastic as our tour guide to Capri! So enthusiastic and fun and knew so many interesting facts about Capri. We had plenty of options for what to do during our free time. After our boat ride back to Naples, we boarded a bus to Pompeii where Mafalda introduced us to Enza who was our escort through the ruins. We were blown away by the immense size and easily could have spent a couple of days exploring Pompeii. We are so glad we booked this excursion.

I was very satisfied with the shore tour but should have been advised of extra fees.

Thank goodness our guide switched to going to Capri first then Pompeii. I believe we were able to enjoy Capri much more since that's were we started. Pompeii was awesome to see and learn about but it was exhausting with the heat and so much walking -so be prepared for that and wear good shoes. Capri is breath taking -must go back and visit and spend more than two hours. Would of preferred that to go inside Pompeii that it was included in the price. That was a little cheesey at giving money to our tour guide for entrance considering how much we paid to begin with. The cost was $26 euros for two.
