Well worth the money for everything you get ! Staff are very welcoming

This was a great tour that was well worth the money for what you get to see . Teresa and Jaco were wonderful guides . They let us stop several places for pictures and knew a lot about the history of Amalfi. The coast is gorgeous just like a post card . You don't want to miss these views . They pick you up and drop you off and you get lunch . Teresa was so kind and helpful . I really appreciate her knowledge and was impressed that she knew three languages . She did an excellent job translating for everyone . World Tours is a great company and we loved our experience with them . Jaco was a excellent driver ! We were in some very tight spots and he was able to manage getting around big busses and other groups. The only thing I wish we would have know is that we would get some free time at the beach So we could swim but it was still a nice time to unwind and take beautiful photos . I would definitely use this tour group again . Thanks so much for your help and knowledge.

Informative & very interesting tour of Pompeii

My husband & I enjoyed seeing this amazing archeological site with our guide. She spoke English quite well & was very informative, unfortunately I don’t remember her name but I think it was Hillary. I can’t imagine seeing Pompeii for the first time without a tour guide. The site is huge & the guide told us details about each “building”. She gave us information about daily life in Pompeii, the eruption of Vesuvius and many more details about the bath houses, the “Red Light District”, the streets and so on. At the end of the tour we were allowed to stay at the site and see more things on our own. We took the local Circumvesuviana train from Sorrento to Pompeii & met our guide close to the train stop. The directions provided were helpful & easy to follow. The only reason I didn’t rate it 5 stars is because we felt that the guide was at times rushed and didn’t allow enough time to take pictures, we also had to walk fast to stay in the group.

Best of Pompeii Tour: Unveiling the Buried City Reviewed by

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.

Naples and Pompeii Rewind, A Must Before You Die

I travel very often as an international scholar, graduate student and a global traveler. This is one of the best and most reasonable rate anyone can have for what it had to offer. I’ve been to Naples a couple of times but having Sylvia and Bruno of GYG. Com handle your trip made it the best for us. I was able to see and understand the Pompeii Event, enjoyed the food, people and landmarks of Naples...with every detail going back several thousand years. I highly recommend this contractor to anyone and if you haven’t seen Naples, call them and enjoy this place before you go to your box! No offense to the “box” was trying to emphasize a point!

Francesca was thouroughly knowledgeble on Pompeii unstumpable

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.
