Great experience! Clear meeting location! Great safe bus driver to sites. Amazing tour guide Anna at Pompeii and Terry was excellent with us all day and guiding us through Capri. Nice small group, very clear with direction. I suggest this tour!

Great for getting an introduction of Capri and Pompeii. There really isn’t much time to do much. Do not expect a deep dive of either places. However if you are looking to admire the beauty and high-level history this is a great tour! More walking than anticipated. No time to rest. The guides are knowledgeable and extremely friendly. The only downside was the bus transfer to Pompeii and then back to hotel— no air conditioning.

Wonderful guided tour through the beautiful island of Capri and the ruins of Pompeii. Our guide, Guisy, was great at keeping our group together and getting us around throughout the day. Our Pompei guide was also funny and very intelligent on the ruins as he walked us through the main sites. Good way to see two places in one day.

Our guide = rated 10 out of 10, but for the tour, zero isn't a low enough rating

This was the day of our travels in Greece and Italy that I was most excited about. After hearing about Mount. Vesuvius and Pompeii as a young child I have always wanted to visit and it was finally happening - I was so excited. But the tour was an unmitigated disaster and a total waste of money. Worse, a waste of a full day and Pompeii, sadly, remains on my bucket list because after this tour I still cannot say I have really seen it. First, our guide was excellent and was only delivering the tour she was instructed by her employer to deliver, so I do not fault her for this at all. In fact, she is the reason I rated this tour 2 stars instead of 1. With that said, let me fill you in on why you should not book this tour. The tour description listed on Viator describes the day as a 2 hour guided tour of Pompeii as the first activity, communicating that it was to be the priority part of the day, "followed by" a boat trip to Capri and a brief tour with some free time to shop. This is a far cry from what we actually experienced. When we first met our guide she walked us to the ferry dock and bought tickets for the boat to Capri. She then told us we were going to Capri first and would visit Pompeii in the afternoon. This concerned me, but I felt as long as enough time is committed to both I was fine with the change in plan. When we got to Capri and took the cable car to the town we were told what time we were to come back to meet for the ride down and ferry back to Naples. That was when I realized she was leaving us to shop and walk the town of Capri for almost 3 hours. That meant we would have very limited time in Pompeii before our cruise ship would leave port. I asked "How much time will that give us to visit Pompeii?" She said we would meet a guide there and have a 90 minute tour. I knew this did not meet the 2 hour promise in the listing, but felt they are the guides and probably know how long is needed to tour the site better than I do, so maybe 90 min. would be plenty of time. So we walked the small village of Capri to "Shop". While the island is picturesque and gorgeous, Capri is basically Rodeo drive on an island. There were just a few blocks of shops and restaurants, and every shop was a high fashion, name brand store such as Armani, Versace, Valentino, Patek Philippe, Prada, Gucci, and YSL and every other fashion brand you can imagine. But among them not one shop with affordable goods, I would have to take out a loan to buy anything here. So we gave up on shopping and decided to have a quick lunch at a little pizza place. 45 minutes and $120 Euro later (for 1 pizza, 2 calzones, and 2 cokes) we were done and it was time to meet our guide. When we met we visited a little lemoncello shop that provided samples of chocolate and the yummy drink, which was nice, and then within 10 min. we were back on the tram down to the dock. After the boat ride and a shuttle over to Pompeii our guide told us there was another guide that would be doing that part of the tour for us that was an expert on Pompeii, so when we got to the entrance we waited for her for about 20 min., burning more valuable time When we finally entered Pompeii I was awestruck and wanted to spend hours exploring the well preserved and massive site. But after waiting for the other guide, we had exactly 70 minutes until we had to be back on the shuttle to reach our cruise ship on time. There were so many fascinating things in Pompeii that we almost saw. Many of the wealthy people's houses were open for entry, but only for a small number of people at a time so you had to wait outside a gate until they could let you in. With the limited time allotted for this part of the tour, we only entered one house. The remainder of the "tour" of Pompeii I can barely remember. The guide was moving so quickly through the streets that I felt we were running (and at times we were) and not really seeing anything. We had radio earpieces to hear what she was saying about different things, but often she got so far ahead of us that the signal cut out and we heard nothing. I am due for spinal surgery next week and delayed the procedure so surgical recovery would not hamper my trip, but that means I need to move carefully to avoid severe pain and I simply could not keep up with her. At one point it became so frustrating that I just removed the earpiece and said "I am going to see some things here before we leave and I'm going to stop running" Sadly, that was 10 min. before we had to meet the shuttle for the ride back to port. As we jogged down the hill to the exit, the guide said "It's unfortunate you had so little time here. It takes at least 4 hours to properly tour Pompeii." We complained to the original guide about the awful tour, the waste of almost 4 hours to visit Beverly Hills II, Italian Island. And all she had to say was "Well, next time." As if I can just travel 12,000 miles on a free weekend to come see it again. I felt we spent 3/4 of the day seeing a town steeped in wealth and fashion, which is not my thing at all, and then were robbed of the experience we really wanted as a result. It was so bad that my son, who is an 18 year old ancient history fanatic and also was most excited about visiting Pompeii, broke into tears as we ran down the hill to exit the site. He was sobbing and saying "we never even got to see anything and we couldn't even go into the buildings.". I was just as upset so I promised we would return as a part of the inland European trip we plan to take in few years. I had not planned on going any further south than Florence on that trip because we have been to southern Italy twice, but now I will add a couple of days to see Pompeii. In all this tour cost us over $600 to waste time looking at stores we couldn't afford and not see what we wanted to see plus it will be an additional $1,500+ to extend our next trip in see it again properly. A very expensive day and we are not happy. Throughout this vacation we booked 7 tours through Viator and 6 were excellent (in fact, one was the best tour and guide I have ever had in my life) but this one was awful. Avoid it at all costs.

We had a lot of trouble picking between all of the tour options and reading about some of the less favorable reviews. We were really pleased; we were picked up promptly at the assigned hotel pick up location and picked up 4 others somewhere else before being dropped at the pier to meet the rest of the group and our guide. We were provided water at this time. We took a ferry to Capris, learned of some the history, and walked the beautiful streets before some free time and a limoncello tasting which was delicious and included some other treats. We took the ferry back to Naples and boarded a bus for Pompeii where a separate guide did a tour of the ruins, before heading back and being dropped off where we were picked up. There was water on the bus. All the different drivers were great, the Pompeii tour guide was interesting and knowledgeable. Serena was our guide for the day and she was really great. She was well organized and prepared and told us what we needed to do, when and where to do it. Her instructions were really clear. Some of the history/background was a bit confusing to follow at times, but definitely not a deal breaker. I would recommend this tour to anyone wanting a whirlwind experience of these two places, it was the right amount of time to get a good flavor of each destinations. Full day though so be ready and Pompeii is super hot … thank you, especially to Serena!

Terri, our tour guide was phenomenal. The best experience we have had thus far, this is our 5th tour so far in Italy. The team worked seamlessly with the multiple shuttles, ferry and other modes of transportation on this adventure. If you are in between what your to take I highly suggest this one.

Capri island tour was cancelled and made us wait for 4.5 hrs with just taking us from one place to another to kill our time and at 12pm we start the Pompeii tour after having a pick up at 7.45am. Had just two hours on Pompeii but didn’t really enjoy it as I was on the phone with Viator to see if I would be refunded for the capri Tour. Viator said only €30 which is a joke and I m still disputing to get my money back! I hope Viator helps me and stops me from swishing my time further because this trip cancellation not only spoilt my mood yesterday but my entire Italian trip! I hope I don’t have to go to my credit card to dispute against Viator if they don’t help!

Wonderful time at Pompeii & Capri. Pompeii tour was great with detailed and enlightening history of the place - Antonio was great - we experienced delays on waiting to start/enter the area, that should be avoided. Capri was really great - appreciate the free time!

Our guide Tizyana was absolutely wonderful! She picked us up from the hotel and gave us some history of the area on the way to Pompeii. Once at the entrance of Pompeii she guided us to the only free bathrooms so that we would not have to pay extra to relieve ourselves. She coordinated with another guide to get us in Pompeii ahead of all of the crowds. The tour in Pompeii was wonderful and the guide was very knowledgeable and answered all of our questions. Pompeii is huge and you really could spend at least an entire day there, but in the 2 hours we were there it was perfect! We saw all the highlights! We then met back up with Tizyanan and took the boat to Capri. She told us where to sit to see the best views. In Capri she made our experience very special. I told her I wanted to try all the lemon things and she took me to the most amazing store with alllll the lemon deliciousness!!! She was wonderful! The views and garden she took us to were absolutely stunning! And to top it all off, she recommended a restaurant for dinner where I got the most amazing meal I have ever had!!!

We had a great tour with Serena as our guide, she was so friendly and personable. She went above and beyond to make sure and meet all of our requests and needs. It was a real pleasure to spend the day with her.The most memorable part of our tour was the boat ride around the island of Capri, suggested by our wonderful guide Serena. We also really enjoyed our experience at Pompeii. Much better than I anticipated and so much to see! Thanks Viator for a delightful experience!
