The tour around Pompeii was excellent made all the more enjoyable and entertaining by our guide Gino. Gino made Pompeii come alive and we had so many interesting anecdotes related to us during the tour, had we not had a guide with the experience and knowledge of the history of Pompeii not to mention Roman and Egyptian history there’s so many things we would never have known. Thank you Gino 5 stars.
The reason for 4 stars and not 5 was the train journey - the train from Sorento was delayed and we sat for over an hour in a train that was clearly faulty and going nowhere and nobody seem to know what was going on. Eventually we moved to a different platform onto a different train and once again waited quite some time before the train actually moved towards Pompeii. It was extremely hot on that on that journey because by the time the train left the station it was absolutely rammed packed and the journey which should’ve taken 35 minutes actually took just over two hours.

A great way to find out about Pompeii. Our guide, Josephena, was interesting, organised and amusing! Would recommend using a guide to explain areas of Pompeii and then you can explore for yourself afterwards and for as long you want. If it’s a sunny day it can get unbearably hot, I wished I had taken an umbrella for shade.

This was a great way to see Pompeii. We were met by Gino, our guide, at Sorrento train station. A short train ride to Pompeii, time to visit the restroom and stock up on water and then Gino had us by passing the queue and into the site. We were given audio sets so we could always hear what Gino had to say. The tour was very insightful and interesting. Ginos knowledge was so passionate and informative which exceeded our expectations of the tour. The tour was the perfect length and we got to see all of the highlights of Pompeii. Gino was an excellent guide, keeping the tour interesting with his own touch and guiding us to shaded areas to listen to him as it was a very hot day. Gino was extremely helpful to all of our group in giving directions on how to return back to Sorrento if we wished to stay at the site longer. Would highly recommend a guided tour to anyone planning to visit.

We visited in April so 'skip the line' wasn't really worth it because there weren't that many people anyway. The train from sorrento station takes you directly to pompeii so is easy enough to navigate by yourself. It is very crowded though so get there early if you want a seat!
This being said our guide 'Josephine' was very knowledgeable. She showed us some of the more interesting sites and left us to continue by ourselves after the tour if we wanted to.
My advice would be to check out which parts of Pompeii you want to see (and whether they are open-they are not all open at the same time) and hire one of the phones that tell you about each artefact. Then you can choose what you want to see.

Dear Macaulay86 Thank you for your review of our 'Skip the line PompeiExpress' tour!. It’s so nice you took the time to leave a review even you don't suggest to book this tour to other customers. Of course we respect your opinion, it's your experience, but we also want to inform you that on that day other customers who did the same tour, were happy and sent us nice reviews.The guide has to organize the tour each day, as the Pompeii management, day by day, decides the area to be opened. Thank you by the way for sharing your experience. We hope to see you on your next trip to Sorrento. Best wishes from Fatima / Belmare Travel

Gino was excellent. He met us at the train station with clear guidance on where to go the other end, looks, water etc. He looked after us, had a little mic, provided us all with earpieces and made sure we could all follow what was happening. He had a wonderful sense of humour which made the tour fun, even if you're not that into history.

In addition to what we could cover in the time given, he also pointed out other things we could go and see for free - in case we were interested. It was a great day trip. And he's totally right: you can't do all of Pompeii in a day. You'd need four to five days to do it all. I think this tour is great value for money as well as being the right length during a very, very hot day. 5 stars.

An amazing day out and what an experience! I am so glad to have booked a guided tour as the site at Pompeii has no labels or descriptions of anything there to see, meaning that our Guide, Ciro G, provided invaluable information throughout the tour. The tour lasted around 2 hours and covered all the main aspects one would expect to see if you have done any prior reading look out for the 'beware of the dog' mosaic and the large villa with garden which are both spectacular. The tour, delivered in English took us back in time to walk the streets of Pompeii passing by houses, shops, a bakery and yes, a brothel. All of the information provided was essential to enjoying the experience as without it we would have had no idea what we were looking at. The site was much larger than I expected so on a hot day, I would suggest a hat and some water! Ciro was professional and made the experience funny as well as informative. Would 100% recommend! Book tours next to Sorrento's main train station and get on your way!!

This was a great day out!
Gino our guide was very informative, funny and passionate about Pompeii and made the trip very enjoyable.
The place is vast so I would definitely recommend going with a guide who can show you all the main places to visit. We all wore head sets which worked really well as you could hear all that Gino was saying and still take pictures!
This trip was definitely one of the highlights of my holiday!

We found this tour very insightful and interesting. Our tour guide Gino was so passionate and knowledgeable which exceed our expectations of the tour. The tour was the perfect length and we got to see all of the highlights of Pompeii. Gino lightened the tour with his humor as it was quite warm at the site. Gino was extremely helpful to all of our group in giving directions on how to return back to sorrento if we wished to stay at the site longer. Would highly recommend thus tour to anyone planning to visit.

Train and to Pompeii from Sorrento was terrible. Very late and packed both there and back.
It was also boiling hot and there was next to no shade at Pompeii train station. Skip the line tour seemed like a waste of money as we just walked into to Pompeii and found our own way round pretty easily

Our guide Gino was very knowledgeable, very interesting info—he said he had 40+ years of experience giving tours in Pompeii. Headsets were provided so we didn’t have to strain to hear. Meeting in Sorrento and taking the train together rather than trying to meet a tour in Pompeii was helpful since the trains are often late; plus we could stay after the tour and explore on our own.
