From Naples: Pompeii and Sorrento Full-Day Tour
- Transportation included
- Skip the ticket line
- Duration: 7 hours
Overall we enjoyed the tour, but the time at each location was too short and was quite rushed. The hotel pick up is nice, but eats into the day, then when you get to Pompeii you wait to get sorted into groups, again this wastes more time. You get the allotted 2 hours with the guide however, in that time you cannot possibly cover even half the site, but you see some of the notable sights. Pompeii is vast and if I was to do a Pompeii tour again, I would choose a tour that spent longer at the site one that had some free time to explore as well (minimum of 3-4 hours). The tour guide was good and gave a good account of how life was and the various parts we visited. The lunch was nice, but eats into the day, snack lunch would be a better option. Sorrento was lovely, but again quite rushed with limited time, although we did get the allotted 1 hour as stated and is not nearly long enough (minimum of 2-3 hours). This tour really only offers a 'taster' of the sights to see.
Francesca was thouroughly knowledgeble on Pompeii and was never stumped by odd or unusual questions. She seem to anticipate what we wanted before we asked. She was calm and cool even in the 42C heat. I would recommend this tour. Manuela, our guide in Sorrento knew all the good spots to shop in the small town especially the best gelato (Primavera!) and the best limoncello spots.
Very knowledgeable guide in Pompeii. We loved the tour! Also checked with other similar offers in town. The price here is very reasonable.
guide was excellent. as was our driver. only one small. coach was late. but it was a fantastic day. thank you
