Worst Experience EVER.

Train broke down on the way there making us late. Rather than putting us in with the next tour group, we were simply handed tickets that cost $16 each even though we paid $150 for the tour. They would not refund us the difference, completely ruined the experience. Would never use this site again for any tours.
icon Response from Host , Jun 2022
Dear Kenneth, we are sorry about your bad experience on that day and we understand your concern. Unfortunately that day you made about 2 hrs delay after the tour starting time. Sadly all other shifts were already full booked and not able to help and reschedule. We deliver a tour with meeting on spot and we are not responsible about transportation to reach meeting point. As you arrived we also gave you anyway your entrance tickets (paid twice by our side because of your delay) to let you enjoy the ruins anyway by your own even if you were not entitled, since your entrance was with the guide. We tried to do our best to help you, but unfortunately it was not our fault and we paid guide and tickets and we were out of Viator cancellation policy. Kind regards

The tour guide was very nice, but we felt that there was too much obvious detail discussed. Time would have been better spent seeing more of the ruins.

Great tour but a little rushed in 2 hours.

This was a good tour. Pompeii was very interesting and our guide Diego was very knowledgeable and informative. I would say that this tour might be better as a 3 hour tour rather than 2 hours as there is so much to see that it can feel a little rushed but we understand that was because Diego was trying to show us as much as he could within the time restrictions. Overall a very interesting tour however!

The perfect tour of Pompeii

My group went on a tour later in the day and were pretty tired, but the 2 hour tour flew by with Antonio as our guide. He was extremely knowledgeable in all things Pompeii, and showed it wasn’t all just memorized facts with his thoughtful responses to questions asked during the tour. He also had good recommendations for other things to do around the area. Great value for the price, we highly recommend.

Our tour guide, Diego did a phenomenal job with our exploration of Pompeii. He was very informative and thoughtfully lead us through the grounds with ease. He kept a great walking pace and was considerate about finding less crowded streets and more shade. Thank you, Diego!

It was a phenomenal tour. Got to see most of the site and our tour guide, Diego, was great! He was extremely friendly, helpful, and an expert on all things Pompeii. I would recommend this tour to anyone traveling in the area interested in a great half day excursion!
