Amazing experience. Mara is a very engaging guide, very helpful. And our local guide in Naples was amazing as well. Very knowledgeable, spoke in a perfect Spanish, which my non-English fluent mom thanked. Driver was careful and very polite. Also, Mara’s polka dot umbrella saved the day. We would totally recommend this tour to anyone wanting to experience Naples while short in time.

We had an absolute wonderful time in this Day long tour to Napoli and Pompeii. The primary reason was Alessia, our tour leader, who was the most helpful and also the most entertaining tour leader we could have ever hoped for. She enlivened the trip from Rome to Napoli with short quips of history along the way. All throughout the stops she ensured to take care of everyone's doubts and needs patiently. We loved our Pompeii walkabout too, lucky to be paired with Paolo our excellent guide, who gave us a detailed and dramatic stories between every street and house of Pompeii. We would love to visit again and would definitely recommend this to everyone.
To highlight one last thing, on our trip back, Alessia took an initiative to meet each traveller in the bus individually and connect with us. It was an amazing graceful gesture which touched everyone. When talking to us, she recommended us multiple special spots in Rome. We could see the same appreciation in our fellow passengers as well. We cannot thank Alessia enough to going out of her way to help her passengers.

Dear Guest, it's great to read this review so thank you very much for the time spent writing it and sharing it. It's a great contribution to us all and Alessia, too. We know she is one of our best and dedicated tour leaders but such feedback is always useful because it helps us re-focus on what works well and take it as a blueprint for the training of the rest of the staff. We're glad you had a great day with us at Pompeii and we hope to see you soon again. Best regards, the Gray Line I Love Rome Team

We had a hotel pickup booked and although they were 20 minutes past the pickup time the service was excellent and we were at the meeting place on time. We were lucky enough to have Marco as our overall guide and Johnny as our driver. Both exceptionally knowledgeable and pleasant. After about 1 hour of travel we stopped for a break...restrooms and coffee. The Napoli stop was interesting but with the amount of construction in the tour area somewhat difficult. The lunch was wonderful and Pompeii spectacular! We had been previously but they have found and open so many more areas in the last 5 years it was super interesting. We would definitely do again.

The tour was ok. Picked up near Termini Station at 0730 (not from central hotel as advertised), stop about 9am for coffee & bagno I break, then to Napoli for tour of central city historic exterior buildings, then to Pompei for pre-ordered lunch (salad, pizza, drink, desert), then to a studio where they displayed artists making/carving jewelry and an expectation that we would buy something (expensive, unexpected, and not what we signed up for). Then finally, the 2 hour tour of some of the Pompei ruins, and a promise that we would have free time to explore on our own. The free time was just enough time to use a bagno and return to the meeting place for departure back to Rome. We arrived back to Rome around 7pm. So, for a 12 hr trip to Pompei we had 2 hours in Pompei.
WORST and most disturbing, as Covid cases are n the rise, the van driver and the tour guide only wore their masks on their mouths but did not cover their noses ever.

We had a tour that included a 30 min walking tour in Naples, with a local Italian cuisine lunch. Paula was our guide and although very knowledgeable was reluctant to interact and acknowledge the group. She did become better in Pompeii where this was clearly her passion however we were rushed through the museum part very quickly and did not get the time to really look around properly. She did take us through the most important parts of Pompeii town within 2 hours and had a lot of good knowledge about this. The tour guide on the coach was a lot more energetic and friendly.

First let me say that the Pompeii portion of this tour was excellent. Our tour guide excellently managed a combined English/Spanish tour (more on that) and gave unique and interesting facts. To be fair, seeing Pompeii most definitely would take more time than we had, but that said, with the few hours we did have, we covered a lot of ground. The lunch was great--pizza and salad and dessert and wine before we did the Pompeii tour at a lovely restaurant. Also, the quick coffee stops there and back were, while not needed, a nice stop.

Some surprises were that our tour was actually not just with English speakers, but with Spanish speakers as well. We actually began to wonder as we waited on the bus if we had chosen the wrong tour. I'm sure this is because of cost, but it would have been nice to know that this was a possibility. Again, all the way around, from our bus guide and Pompeii/Naples guide, this was not an issue. Like others we did not enjoy the Naples portion as it seemed unnecessary and we saw about 3 things in an hour. Yes, the things we saw were fine, but I'd much rather have spent that time in Pompeii. Also, upon arrival in Pompeii we were brought into a cameo factory which was very odd and clearly just so people would buy things. This seemed really out of place but perhaps because the company uses this as a meeting place, they are required to feed us all into this place? This was a bit off-putting.
Overall, we really enjoyed the tour. Some minor tweaks would make it 5 star. Definitely go to Pompeii!!

Dear Lucy, thanks a lot for booking the tour to Pompeii with us and for your TripAdvisor contribution. As you see, we care about what people say and take your feedback into account. We're glad you enjoyed your day all in all: we promise to make the possibility of a bilingual approach more clear but, to be honest, it doesn't happen that often after all - as you say, it's a necessity when we only have one bus departing from Rome.

Wonderful trip from Rome. The bus was comfortable and our tour leader was very entertaining. Our local guide was very informative and knew the best ways around Pompeii to maximize viewing experience. I enjoyed the personal radios that allowed us to hear our guide voice much more clearly and without having to shout.

Pompeii was worth the wait.
After a 6.30am collection we did everything listed before getting into Pompeii at 2.15pm for a 2 hi our guides tour.
Bus left 7.30am
A stop on the way.
Naples 1 hour tour of the harbour and a couple of buildings.
Visit to a cameo factory shop.
Lunch with hard pizza and one drink...only one drink allowed....piece of cake also.
Then Pompeii.
Superb.
Guide had a fascination with the quantity of brothel's but the tour was perfect.
Our coach guide was a great bloke, spoke good English and showed us lots of sights on the way.
Dropped back at the bus station for 7.45pm so a long day but had a sleep on the bus.

Our main Tour guide Andrea was a good man, his commentary was great. He also kept a good look out for everyone so no one got lost or left behind. When we got to Naples it was very rushed and didn’t get much from the headset because you were busy rushing.
Lunch was fantastic, pizza and beer 👍
The Pompeii tour was amazing, the pace was great and the local guide was much better in Pompeii.
What a beautiful site!
Vesuvius was covered by clouds but you could see the east and west slopes.
Overall we had a fantastic experience.

Dear Guest, thank you very much for publishing your opinion about your Pompeii tour and for describing all the portions of this best selling activity. The Naples portion is a sightseeing tour of the city center because Pompeii is the highlight of the experience and we must get our guests there by our entrance time at 2:30 PM. However, we appreciate your feedback and it will be taken into account. Best regards, the Gray Line I Love Rome Team

It was great that we got to see the ruins on our own since we felt we wanted more time instead of having lunch with the group but did not realize that there was no audio to go with it. It should have been more clear in the description. Also for future, think you should include Vesuvius as part of the tour as that was our main reason to go to Pompeii and we missed that chance since there was not enough time.
