Not the way to create trust
, May 2022
The group contained English and Italian speakers and the guide repeated everything in both languages. This was tedious and frustrating and a waste of time.

Great memorable trip
, May 2022
Our guide Carmela (appologie if spelt wrong!) was great! Very knowledge and enthusiastic about the tour and very friendly. Transport there and back made it very easy and meeting point was easy to find. We had a great time, thank you!
Tour group too large
, May 2022
Our tour guide Carmela was great but the group was too large-24 people. By the time you got to see what the guide was showing you, she was already explaining the next site. Would definitely preferred this experience with a smaller group and would have felt less rushed and gotten more out of the experience.
Very cool old city

Pompeii is a really neat place and this tour was nice and easy! I liked just doing half of the day because we have been doing lots of tours. You got to see highlights of Pompeii. But, our guide was right, you’d need 2 years worth to experience all of it!! It’s a great tour and we had a wonderful guide, Ornella!

Excellent experience despite dreadful weather. Highly recommended. Fascinating must see visit and this tour is one of the best
Don't do the half-day tour

I usually am quick to give a 5 star review, and I've tried to be fair here: The tour inaccurately posted here that this entire tour takes 4 hours. It doesn't (at least 5.5 for a 2hr tour of Pompeii), and the operator required my wife and I to pay for a private driver to get back to Sorrento in time to make our pre-booked trains which we had to make. The tour arranged for the driver, but made us pay for it (we were desperate, so we couldn't exactly refuse). I missed a large part of the tour on the phone with the tour operator, ruining at least half of the tour. I note that they've since changed the timing on this, but as you can see from my screenshot (taken during the morning of the tour), they clearly said it would be 4 hrs. I take their change of timing as an admission that they realized what they stated was inaccurate, though they should have taken responsibility at the time. I do want to say that our guides, Pasquale and Vincenzo, were professional and helpful. Vincenzo, who did our tour of Pompeii, was extremely knowledgeable. I just wish I could have pair attention the whole time instead of dealing with the back office. More broadly, I think you would want most tour operators to have the tourist's back. This one didn't. This is the second bad experience I had with Gray Line in Italy (the other one a Tuscany tour where the guide made no effort to enforce any covid requirements on a bus of about 50 people), so I'll be avoiding them in the future.

Dear Nic_W, we are very sorry to read your complaint since we did the best possible to let you live your experience in Pompeii without troubles. The total lenght of the tour is 4 hours, but as explained over the phone, being a group tour (so not private and customizable according to your necessities) and being a "particular" year as well, it's necessary to be flexible, the timing can change due to several factors: 1) traffic or unexpected along the way 2) body scanner to enter the archaeological site 3) coffe break or toilette stop 4) Green Pass verification We knew that you had to return in Sorrento exactly 4 hours later the scheduled departure time, once arrived in Pompeii and entering to the ruins; we met in the morning and nothing has been said, we sent a message as a friendly reminder the day before the tour and neither in that case you advised us that you had a specif necessity to fit your travel plans (you should have advised us in time, so you wouldn't skip any explanation of the guide... even if our conversation lasted very few minutes !) so... we did our best to let you return in Sorrento whitout the group (since their eparture from Pompeii would have been later) offering several options: 1) send a driver FOR FREE to pick up your luggage in Sorrento, pick you up in Pompeii and drop you off in Naples... but you refused since you didn't packed yet... 2) catch a train at the end of the tour to return straight to Sorrento in time 3) Arrange a private transfer to pick you up in Pompeii and drop you off in Sorrento and make the visit to Pompeii as fast as possible in oder to follow your programme. You chose the third option, which, by the way, was the hardest to arrange beacuse all our drivers were busy and we had to change all our plans and offer this service at the best rate possible (you can compare the price you paid with any taxi fare or private transfer with personal driver in a couple of click on internet) to let you arrive at your hotel in time. As explained, this has been arranged only for your party since the transfer from Pompei to Sorrento (as return of the tour to Pompeii) was scheduled at around 1:00 pm (after the walking tour, we cannot catapult people into the bus, whitout giving them the time to relax, sip a coffe or simplier use the toilette!)... you could have refused this service and simplier return without rushing in town.... We just did our job in the best way possible to fulfilling your needs whitout causing troubles to your travel plans. We had to put 1 hour extra on the tour just beacuse we increased a little bit the time to enter the ruins...every feedback matters and helps us to make better but it's not all about one person ! We remain at your complete diposal if you need any further clarifications. Kindest regards, Graziana
