Great trip. Easy communication, well organised. Tour guide was knowledgeable. Would have preferred a little longer inside on our own to explore but key points were covered.

Half day tour Pompeii
Feb 2020 • Couples
This tour was good and had lots of information. The tour started late. Our tour guide didn’t speak loud enough and was distracted by small children in our tour group. We enjoyed all the historical information and visiting Pompeii.

Refused to Do the Tour in Language I Signed Up For
Jan 2020 • Solo
I had a really disappointing experience with both the booking office and my guide on this tour. I signed up for a tour in my native language and availability was confirmed. When I was picked up with the other passengers, the guide said in Italian to the driver “ugh, multiple languages. only one xx speaker!” she then proceeded to give the tour only in Spanish. Embarrassed, I asked her if she could also speak in the language I signed up for. She turned to me and said “do you really not understand any Spanish?” I was really taken aback. She then explained to me how inconvenient it would be for her to repeat everything in the tour for just one person and that everyone else would get bored and angry.

I called the booking office when we arrived in Pompei and explained the situation to them and they told me that when there is a booking where most of the people speak one language, they cannot guarantee that the tour will also be in your language. That’s a lot of money to spend for only getting every other word! They made it seem like it was my fault that I didn’t speak Spanish. It was only until I explained that I spoke five languages and Spanish just didn’t happen to be one of them that they relented.

Eventually they agreed that the guide would translate for me as well but she made me feel so guilty the whole time. Even at the end she repeated that everyone else on the tour had to wait for me in the cold while she explained to me.

It’s too bad, because otherwise she was a good guide. But unless you want to be embarrassed for asking to speak in a language you’re most comfortable with (and paid for!) I would pick another company.

Pompei
Dec 2019
The tour guide was very knowledgeable. They picked up us from our hotel in Sorrento in a comfortable and roomy van. While only 2 1/2 hours at Pompei our guide hit all of the important sites. My husband and I thought the amount of time there was perfect and enjoyed our day it was very informative, well organized and convenient

The driver from hotel to Pompeii was highlight of the trip. He provided some commentary about sights on the way and even stopped once for a photo opportunity. Pompeii is fascinating but honestly, the rest of this tour was rushed and impersonal with very little attention to detail. No information about pickup time. I had to contact the tour company more than once to confirm this and was still given incorrect information. With 30+ people in the group there was minimal time to see anything in Pompeii. I felt like the thousandth tourist for the day pushed and rushed through by an exhausted staff just turning the crank. I recommend you consider a private or at least smaller tour. Just going on your is better than this.

A must-see attraction for anyone with a sense of history, or an imagination
Aug 2019
Despite mid-August heat, we thoroughly enjoyed our tour. Van that transported us from our hotel in Sorrento was clean and comfortable, and driver was courteous and friendly.At site, we were handed off to a tour guide, and the tour itself was wonderful. Our guide was pleasantly aggresive, ensuring that we had our priority spot in line-ups and that others did not push ahead ... very important given how crowded the most interesting attractions were. Would have been nice to spend longer wondering around, but we were travelling with a 2 month-old infant and any longer in the sun would have been too much.All in all, a great experience.

2 hours sight seeing.....
The host Francesca was very knowledge and attentive. The transfers were comfortable and on time etc. The actual tour itself was a bit disappointing - we received radios so we could hear the host in the Group.- there were c.25 of us. I had thought a small Group was more like 8 to 10 people - the radio got quite annoying to listen to for that duration of time - least I found it annoying also bring a hat / something to create shade and bring water in high season.

Disappointing
We did this tour today as a family of four with an 11 year old and a 19 year old.
We were picked up near our hotel. Temperatures today were about 32 degrees. The mini bus had 10 travellers and the air conditioning wasn't really efficient enough to keep us cool.
An hour to Pompeii and we were met by our guide Maria and joined by more than 20 other visitors to make a your of more than 30. It's obviously really busy at Pompeii, and it was a bit confusing and manic. The tour lasted 2 hours. Just 10 minutes free time inside to take pictures or stroll. We were then left for 30 minutes outside Pompeii with all the overpriced drinks and tourist junk to buy. Also outside the attraction you have to pay 50 cents to use the toilet, but it's free inside.
The whole tour felt like a tired production. Very disappointed that there wasn't more free time inside and that we didn't get to see the visitor centre.
Also it was hugely overpriced for what we got. If we had paid to get in ourselves my 11 year old would have been free and my 19 year old would have cost €2. However with this tour all of us were counted as adults and were charged £65 each.
The queue to pay to get in wasn't that long and it's high season, so really worth making your own arrangements to pay to enter.
Overall, disappointing and felt a bit ripped off.

Highly Overpriced - Short/Rushed Tour
Jul 2019 • Couples
“Half Day” means 1 hour 45 min of a snails paced stroll down a street actually in the Pompeii archaeological area. Tour guides speak broken English, which make it very hard to understand through the earpieces you are to wear. Seemed like much of the tour focused on where the over 30 people in the tour group were from, and where they have been in Italy. Complete waste of time. The cost included the ticket price to enter Pompeii, as well as transfer to and from Sorrento. Not that it was a bad experience, just certainly not worth the cost. Highly overpriced that rely’s on tourists thinking this is a usual cost for such activity.

Just to think that I was actually walking the streets & roads that families & donkeys used in the past before being melted by lava (frozen in time) was such a humbling experience for me
