Traveler Tips

Nothing major still a worth while tour but just use the toilet before you go in so you maximise your time inside
If you want photos, make sure to stay back for a minute and take some while still listening thru the provided speaker.
Good planning in Pompeii: acclimatization (30 minutes), guided walk (2 hours), gather before departure (10 minutes).

The Best Experience All Thanks To Francesca
Laura_S, Jan 2023
This was the BEST experience. We met the tour at Nepoli Centrale and they made it really easy. Francesca is incredible x 10000. We loved her. She is so passionate and informative. She answered all of my questions (even if they were silly) and she was so kind to our group. I wish every tour was this organized, this interesting and this informative and has a guide as amazing as Francesca. Thank you so much!
Perfect Experience.
Mark_M, Jan 2023
The coach pick up was very accommodating. They came to us and made it very convenient. The tour guide Francesca was amazing. She is from Pompeii and has a real passion for the subject. First class.
Great introduction to Pompeii
Sanae_H, Jan 2023
It was a great experience and group. Our guide Francesca gave great stories and details. She also provided us time to wonder off to do our own things from time to time.
Ian_T, Jan 2023
Thoroughly recommend this trip to experience the highlights of Pompeii, with the convenience of a pick up at your hotel in Naples
Amazing guide, very interesting stories that made it all come alive
Joanna_L, Jan 2023
Such an amazing location and the guide really brought it to life. Perfect length of the trip as well, and we were especially thankful that they picked us up very close to our hotel, even though our hotel wasn't one of the listed ones.
Great tour of Pompeii
Alessia_P, Dec 2022
Booking the trip to Pompei was very easy. Even though I booked late, the tour company was very accommodating. They came and picked us up outside the hotel, and had us joining an italian guide who was very knowledgeable. My mom and I loved it!
Riveting Tour!
Morgan_H, Dec 2022
Great tour!!! Perfect amount of information but also opportunities to look on our own and take pictures. Blown away.
Fascinating Place but a Rushed Tour
Cheryl_M, Dec 2022
While our guide was well informed and friendly, we felt rushed through our visit to Pompeii. It was a very hot day and the walking was difficult throughout the ruins so rushing made us rather hot and miserable.
Very informative and interesting!
Scarlett_C, Nov 2022
If you want to see cool ruins and learn some fun facts, this tour is for you! I recommend being prepared for the weather, though.

Great way to see Pompeii
Hugh_R, Nov 2022
Great tour, well worth the money for hotel pickup, avoiding the queue and having a proper tour guide. The guide was very diligent and tested all the headsets in advance.
Fun, even in the rain
Kyana_G, Nov 2022
Well it was pouring rain in the beginning, but our guide Francesca kept our spirits up. We bought some rain ponchos and still enjoyed the trip very much. Thank you.

Jean_K, Nov 2022
great commentary as we walked . the understanding that this was a highly organized and vital city could have stayed even longer
Disorganized tour
Loren_F, Nov 2022
We had a good pick up at the port and an excellent guide at Pompei. However the company was operating 3 different tours after Pompeii and the confusion over who went where was bad. They needed better organization
Pompeii Tour Very Interesting!
Ernie_S, Nov 2022
Very interesting tour—was amazed at the paintings in the homes, all the thought the Roman’s put into street designs, and-of course-the brothels!
Fine, but…
