Full description
This full-day tour of the World Heritage Sites of Pompeii and Herculaneum begins with a pick up at your hotel in Naples and a transfer by bus to the ruins at Pompeii. There will be a tour assistant on the bus during this part of the excursion. On arriving in Pompeii you’ll meet your tour guide and then explore the ruins for around 2 hours. Your guide will show you the traditions and daily life of ancient Pompeii. You’ll see the large theater, the necropolis, the thermal baths, and some of the amazing houses that were owned by the richest residents. At the end of the Pompeii tour, you’ll visit a cameo and coral factory that’s located close to the ruins, where you’ll see the manufacturing processes used and have a chance to do a bit of shopping. Lunch will be at the restaurant, which is just a short walk from the factory. After lunch the tour heads to Herculaneum where you’ll have the chance to explore the ruins on your own. It’s possible to observe the daily life of the population here in even more detail than in Pompeii, as the mud and volcanic debris that covered the city preserved the structures and artifacts of Herculaneum incredibly well.

Was a great day out, with informative guide. I would have like more time to explore Pompeii, but as this was a tour, it was not possible. Our guide nade sure we saw all the important parts so still got to see plenty of sights, however. It nice lunch was also provided.

The guide was very good,Silina, if I remember correctly. There was issues with the size and mix of the group,in particular when the visit to Pompeii ended There seemed confusion as we stood outside the restaurant waiting to be split into several groups going onwards to other visits which must have lasted for 30-40 minutes. Eventually we went with a group that were doing a walking trip of naples,so ending up back in Naples for lunch to then go back to Herculaneum

Tour was marred by chaotic start - nearly 2 hours picking up.

The tour was very slow to begin the outward journey; it was unfortunately extremely hot and Pompeii was crowded with visitors, mostly in big groups. The guide was very good & gave a radio commentary throughout this part of the tour. The site of the ruins is worth a visit, but you must expect huge crowds. Lunch was OK, but too far away from the site so more coach time. Also the menu was unclear for showing spaghetti with tomato sauce, which was a meat sauce and not suitable for a vegetarian or a catholic Friday. The second part of the day to Herculaneum was much much better - less crowds and the site very much better preserved. Would recommend this part of the tour rather than Pompeii. The guides were both very good. BUT the organisation of the initial picking up must be improved because that was very poor.
