Nice tour w/ great information that includes transportation

The guide was very knowledgeable about the site plus was able to provide many additional anecdotes. If you have the time I reccomend doing the Pompeii and Mt Vesuvius tour. I only had a few hours to spare, so I did the 2 hour Pompeii tour with the bus pick up from my hotel. The Pick up, drive from sorrento, tour of Pompeii and drive back to my hotel took about 4 hours.

Guide was brilliant and skipping the queue was a huge relief. Take a hat and water and then enjoy the tour. If anything could have been another hour longer, just to see a little more. But you can't see everything unless you're there for at least a day!

Pompeii is an amazing city and the story is surprising and sad. The transport went like clockwork despite the traffic flowing into Sorrento from Naples on a Saturday morning and our guide was really informative and delightful.

POMPEII HALF DAY TRIP
Fiona_C
, Jun 2022
Quite a lot of confusion over where to meet . Only thanks to hotel reception getting involved ( as no Viator office in Sorrento) did we find out we weren’t meeting where Viator told us, so we could very easily have missed the whole trip. However, once all that was sorted out we went on to have a fab trip , and the Italian people are so friendly and very warm

There were no problems...
Alexis_W
, Jun 2022
There were no problems with the pick up. We arrived and were given ear phones. The actual guide was dreadful. We were given very little archaeological detail. He was exceedingly repetitive and kept us in the same spot for far too long. We saw tdpw little of the main site. We missed several very important places. At the end he rushed us through the museum and disappeared. We did not know where to return head sets or catch the return bus. We were told there would be time to buy a drink and something to eat,not true.

The experience was awesome, our guide Elisa was fantastic, very knowledgeable and gave a great tour with lots of good information. It was a very hot walking tour but that was expected! Try to avoid the cafes there as they are very expensive, so bring water/food with you.
