This was a great tour! Our guide Elise was awesome! She knew so much history!
The Tour of Naples was with a small group with direct pick-up from the ship. We got an amazing look at a magnificent basilica in Naples, a great overview of Naples at an amazing overlook, and time to stop and get delicious espresso! Elise was able to switch between French, Italian, and English, all with everyone feeling like they each got information, it was amazing!
Then our small group headed to Pompeii and we were joined by other groups. I saw on past reviews that this is where the group grew astronomically. We were lucky, as there wasn't a lot of cruise ships in that day, so our group didn't grow too unwieldy, but I could see how it could happen. We were able to stay with Elise, but people speaking different languages got other tour guides and went off on their own. It was a great tour of the ancient city, and we really enjoyed our time and our guide. We got to see so many things, and learn so much interesting history. This was far better than the tours offered by the cruise ship, because they were groups numbering upwards of 60! This was a nice group, no bigger than 25, and we were able to all stay together and listen to the great information from our amazing guide!
Thank you Viator for giving us a great day!

Excellent tour. Our guide was superb and gave us a great insight into the way of life in Pompeii. She was very knowledgeable with a great sense of humour so we were learning and laughing throughout the tour. Would highly recommend it.

We were in the med for a cruise and this excursion was the best value by far! We did private tours in Rome and Florence/Pisa. However, after reading the reviews, I booked this excursion. We were a party of 6 and there were only 2 other people on our tour. Our driver picked us up at the boat port, there were about 50 people holding signs and we didn't see him, but suddenly we saw him and all was fine. He spoke barely any English and I was nervous. But he spoke a little Spanish and I found out we were quickly picking up our guide. Our guide was Elisa, her English, and passion for Naples and Pompeii was OUTSTANDING!!!! She kept my children's attention the whole day. She was truly fabulous! Her stories were fascinating. Again, we had tours every day, and by far this was our best tour guide and our least expensive. My only wish was that we could have done Pompeii first in the morning, and then Naples after. It was SO HOT at Pompeii it was august. Dress as light as possible. The timing was the perfect mix of Naples and Pompeii. Again, HIGHLY RECOMMEND ELISA!!!!
