Traveler Tips


  • "The train was not airconditioned but this was not problem at 23C in late Oct but it would be uncomfortable in mid summer with many more tourists." See review
  • "We had to stand, but if you get there a little earlier, you are much more likely to find a seat, since the train sits there for a while before leaving." See review

Pompeii tour

An excellent way to see the highlights of Pompeii. The length of the tour seemed just about right. I think that to have an extended tour might have been bordering on tedious. Our guide had great communication skills and was very engaging. Her scientific & historical knowledge about Pompeii, Vesuvius and Herculaneum was very good.

Fascinating visit to this historic site.

Tour started at Sorrento Station where were met by tour company rep at the designated time. A tour guide soon joined our group and she escorted us by train to Pompeii station (about 40 mins). Train was pretty full as it is the local train to Naples but we all had seats. The train was not airconditioned but this was not problem at 23C in late Oct but it would be uncomfortable in mid summer with many more tourists. The tour of Pompeii was well organised with an opportunity for a bathroom break before we entered the historic site. The guide was very knowledgeable and explained the history of the site and how the Vesuvius eruption occurred. The pace was leisurely with plenty of time for photos in the 2 hours. The site is huge and only around 25% of the ruins were visited in the 2 hours but this was enough to get a feel of Roman life and what the town originally looked like. The guide gave us the option of returning with her to Sorrento or staying at the site and making our own way back. We took the latter, saw a bit more and then had a bite to eat before catching a later train back.

very long and hot wonderful statues and pillars. interesting frescoes especially in the red light area!even in4 hours there was only time to explore only a fraction of the 170 acres. However you did get a sense of the terrible suffering the citizens had on that fateful October afternoon in AD 79

We enjoyed the ease of this booking, and the 2 hour tour of Pompeii. Our guide was easy to find at the train station, and had our tickets purchased in advance. Our guide did a pretty good job of giving us the details and history once at Pompeii. The only downside is the train is very busy, and on the return to Sorrento it was packed beyond belief. I cannot imagine doing this in the summer!

Quick access and we all gathered together for the opening address by our informative guide. We were shown a number of interesting buildings and their significance was appropriately explained.

Pasquale was an excellent tour guide - very informative with a great sense of humor. I was a little afraid at first, thinking that we wouldn't be able to hear him because there was a group of 20 of us; however that was not the case. We typically do not go on tours, but you can't visit Pompeii without a guide unless you read up on it beforehand and familiarize yourself with the city. But, why go through that work if you can book this Pompeii tour with Viator?

Great Tour of Pompeii!

We wanted to give the Circumvesuviana train a try, and it wasn't the hellish experience that many have mentioned. Emanuella was our guide, and she was excellent. She met us at the entrance to the train station and explained which train to take. The train was crowded, but certainly not a bad experience at all. We had to stand, but if you get there a little earlier, you are much more likely to find a seat, since the train sits there for a while before leaving. Pompeii was a great experience, and Emanuella was very knowledgeable and gave us so many interesting facts. The place is gigantic, so the tour only goes through the highlights, but with your return train ticket you are welcome to explore all day if you wish and take the train back when you want to. We highly recommend this tour. Thanks Emanuella for a fun day!

I did this tour with my family and everyone enjoyed it! The company was very organized - as soon as we bought our tickets, I received an email with information about meeting at the train station. Once we arrived, we were greeted by an employee who gave us our tickets and told us who our tour guide would be. We rode the train to Pompeii and met our tour guide by the entrance and were able to skip the line. Our guide, Francesca, was great! We were given headphones that broadcasted what she was saying, so we were able to stay with the walking tour yet explore on our own in the area as well and there was no problem hearing her. We walked through Pompeii backwards and ended in the main square, which helped a bit with the crowds. We say lots of cool areas and it helped to have a knowledgeable tour guide explain as we visited the the ruins of homes, storefronts, the brothel, the amphitheater, etc.

Too many train stops, and too many group participants.
kltracy

Our tour guide was friendly and knowledgeable I have too say that first. It is also not their fault that it was over 95 degrees. But the train was packed with so many tourists and we were not on the express train. It is a slow ride with at least twelve other stops along the way. The train sounded like a cheap and easy way to get there but too slow, hot, and really not much of a view. Try to get the earliest trip you can. It was so extremely hot, very limited escape from the sun that starting out as early as possible would be advised. We started from Sorrento at 10:30 and by the time you do get started it is mid day and already to hot. There were definitely more that 25 people on the tour which made standing around the tour guide difficult to always hear. I learned a lot from this experience and would book a smaller more private tour earlier in the day and not bother with the train.

Dear kltracy Thank you so much for taking the time to leave a review and share your experience on our 'Pompei Express' tour! Visiting Pompei is an amazing experience!.Our guides are professional and experts in their knowledge Most of the times we have groups not bigger than 25 people, rarely the group is more than 30 people. As concerns the train we have never promised an express train, but the local train as per our description. Thank you again for your review and We hope to see you on your next trip to Italy.
