What people are saying about Pompei

Pompeii is a great experience! Despite the audio guide being a locked mobile phone device, it does not allow Bluetooth headsets to be connected (though it would be easily possible). I did not bring wired headphones and they did not sell any to use so the audio guide was a complete waste of money really. This really should be advertised as I would have taken appropriate headphones with me. This was particularly frustrating as many people have Bluetooth headphones now as mobile phones are made without a port. Very disappointing! The cashier tried to sell me a guided tour instead but I explained that I preferred to walk around at my own pace which is why I had purchased an audio guide in the first place.

We enjoyed this tour very much. We were staying in Rome. We met at the meeting point and took the bus which was very comfortable and cool stopping for a break and driving through the beautiful city of Naples. Pompei was amazing. We will definitely plan to return as one day is not enough for Pompei. We recommend this tour to everyone.

Daniela was a wonderful guide, very knowledgable and explained things thoroughly. The AR experience was amazing as well and gave a great insight into what Pompeii looked like in all its glory

We spent the whole morning in the site, keeping our own pace, visiting the places we want.

Roberta, our guide was good. If you want a quick half day tour is worth it.
