Very upset that I was not told final meeting point for tour would come by whatsapp. Staff were rude when they called to ask where I was: “we sent you a whatsapp!!” Well guess what? I don’t use WhatsApp!!! Communication very poor. Actual guide was good. Too large a group, very choatic.

Most Interesting part near the end was cut short

Pick up and Drop off at Hotel in Napoli was in a 20 passenger small bus. Arrival at Pompeii allowed for WC use - Guide had trouble with english - and tour was very very slow until we go to the museum - which is where I would have appreciated spending and extra 10-15 minutes. A few minutes before shuttle back to hotel allowed for WC and some shop browsing.

Our tour guide was excellent however because we had over 30 people in our group, if you were in the back of the group the speaker system was not strong enough to hear. We had to hold our receivers in the air to hear. Most just gave up. I’ve done quite a few visitor tours and normally recommend highly but this one was a disappointment. Too many in the group. Typically Italian - everything ran late!

My primary issue was the enormous delay in pickup. I completely understand traffic delays, but this was 90 minutes late pickup with little communication from the guides t the point that we almost hired a taxi to take us. Once we were there it was a great time.

Fantastic tour! Elisa was extremely knowledgeable with enormous amounts of trivia, facts, and data. I almost never had to ask a question. What a wonderful way to spend an afternoon in one of the most important discoveries of classical antiquity.

Pick up at meeting point...

Pick up at meeting point was on time and efficient but a customer at a different pick-up point was late so we were a bit late getting to Pompeii. The tour guide was extremely knowledgeable and obviously enjoyed what she was doing. Length of tour was about right. Post tour personal time was also about right. Really like that there were different tour guides for different language groups.

Awful experience from the moment we arrived. We couldn’t locate the tour groups because none of our guides had any type of identification signs or information visible. When I approached the 1st guide and said hi is this the tour to… She screamed at me. She said you need to wait. I will get you. It was so bad that the other guide that was standing next to her immediately yelled at the first guide that she was rude. It was an awful reaction to a simple question of am I standing in the right place. Completely unwelcoming from that very first interaction on. I was next told to go stand with Francesca however nobody said who Francesca was or where she was. When I asked the first angry guide she looked at me and ignored me. There was no directions given of where to go. We had to go around from group to group and ask are you Francesca are you Francesca? Francesca also got annoyed when we asked if she was Francesca. It was a simple question of am I standing the right spot with the right group. When we arrived at Pompeii none of the transmitters worked. We were told to take a 10-15 minute break and they would get them working. After they were “fixed” we could not hear Francesca. It was crackling it was hard to hear. A few times we could actually hear her she only said things like what’s your name, oh that’s nice. There was little information given on the tour. Francesca did not allow us to stop for even a picture. She hustled us through and make comments like anybody that’s last has to buy coffee for the group so hurry up. It was the most rushed and uncomfortable experience of my life. I requested a full refund from Viator. We had to leave before the tour was over because it was so stressful and take a taxi ride back to Naples. That cost an additional €90. Do NOT book this tour. Simply awful.

1/2 day Pompeii
Thomas_A
, May 2022
A very well executed 4 hour engagement going to Pompeii. Travel was efficient and the 2 hour tour of Pompeii hosted by our English speaking tour guide Mikela (sp?) was enjoyable. 5 stars to our guide. Two hours was perfect for us but future travelers should evaluate if they want a more extensive visit.

The guide was constantly asking the group questions rather then imparting information. If I wanted to be quizzed I would have went back to school. At the end of visiting Pompeii you are made to stay for an hour in tourist trap central before you are returned to Naples. Upon return to Naples the driver does not bring you back to the port where you were picked up. I’d rather suffer through an eruption of Vesuvius then this tour.
icon Response from Host , May 2022
Dear Sir a guide asking for questions is not necessarily a bad guide and traffic conditions don't depend on us of course. Further we use to take back all participants to the same place we picked them up. My best regards

Best tour of my trip

Excellent guide- funny, knowledgeable beyond the basic tour. She tied in many current phrases we use to how they originated from early Roman life, and when asked questions it was evident her knowledge went far beyond the basic tour. Group size was 35, very manageable. Directions of where/when to meet were concise. Bus arrived on time for pick up. Excellent value for the money!!

Viator did a great job and we enjoyed the tour and our guide. The site has removed all but just a few of the plaster casts of people to another museum. That makes the tour a little less impactful.
