What people are saying about Naples

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.

Fantabulous tour experience by Robert M. from CityWonders

The tour experience is likened to a delizioso tagliolini in aglio olio. The lovely sights are like main ingredients; olive oil, garlic & red pepper flakes coming together in a large pan and Robert is the chef! He is the one that strings all the important pieces together to make this an unforgettable experience for us. Robert is very knowledgeable with all the historical cultures of not only Pompeii but also of Italy. He shared many interesting legends and stories that makes the whole journey so much fun and enjoyable. Robert is also super caring towards everyone in making sure that we’re feeling comfortable and doing alright. His subliminal dark humour is already worth the ticket price for the tour, let alone all the invaluable insights and informations. i would give a 3 thumbs up if i can but last i checked, i have only 2 thumbs just like everyone else...so it’s a 2 thumbs up from me and 2 thumbs up from my wife!

Great tour and a great guide, This is an amazing bit of history.

Excellent tour from an archaeologist who worked on the site, lots of information, facts on how the excavations were done and the content and background to what we were actually seeing. It's incredible that this place is so intact after over 2000 years. Guide had brilliant knowledge of the different sites that were along the coast. I must say she was very attentive to us as visitors during what was a very hot spell at 40 deg C making sure during the tour that we had lots of water and broke up the tour by getting us into the shade to cool of. Me and my daughter thought the tour was worth every penny and would do it again when we bring the rest of the family there.

Well run Well Planned and a full enjoyable day

Your always insecure awaiting for a bus pick up at a location you’re not familiar with, but it all went well. Signage was good, pick up was on time if not a little early (they say be there 15 min early) and it was friendly and enjoyable. Weekends must be a maze of traffic but on a weekday we were going against it and exited Naples in good time. Guide was good and on those roads the driver was a magician. A fully enjoyable 8+ hours later we were all home again after lots of small villages steep cliffs tiny roads and a good time. P.S. the optional additional bout trip was worth the extra 12 euro.
