  • Pompeii Guided Walking Tour With Entrance Ticket

    2. Pompeii Guided Walking Tour With Entrance Ticket

    Get ready to explore the excavation site where, gradually over the last few centuries, the Ancient Roman town has been uncovered. Many of its landmarks are remarkably well-preserved after being buried by volcanic ash for nearly 2 millennia. On this walking tour, you will discover what everyday life was like for a Roman in the town and you will see the Forum, the Thermal Baths, Lupanare, and even streets with shops displaying signs selling produce including wine. With the help of a professional guide, you will learn more about the history of this town and what happened on that day in 79 AD when the nearby Mount Vesuvius erupted.

    The tour was great, instant confirmation, everything clear about the meeting point. The guide spoke really good English and we all had earphones, so that we can all hear her well. The guide also had a lot of information and pictures to share. It was a very well organized tour, we didn't wait anywhere for too long and it was designed to truly get the maximum out of those two hours and see and learn as much as you can. I'm very happy to have chosen this company and this tour. Pompeii ruins are amazing and really a must-see place. It is incredible how well preserved it is and how even today it looks like a city with streets, houses. It's not like other archeological places, where you recognize just bits and pieces, here you really get a feeling of how the life looked like.

    We got picked up at hour hotel right on time. The vehicle was very comfortable. They had to pick up two other people in their hotel so it was just the four of us. This is the reason I chose this particular tour as it was max six people and also offered pick up and drop off. It cost a lot more than the other tour operators but it is easier to just be picked up and dropped off. We stopped by at a service station to get coffee and breakfast and then drove all the way down to Pompeii and the guide Chiara was giving us some information along the way. After Pompeii we headed down to the Amalfi coast. There was traffic so it kind of took longer to get to Positano when we got there a quick walk down to the beach had lunch had some gelato and then off to the boat to go to Amalfi town. Did some souvenir shopping then back to the van. It was all fast but we had fun. The guide looked after us very very well. I was hesitant to book this tour as it wasn’t cheap but it was worth it. Glad we did it.

    Francesco was amazing! The tour we received was above and beyond anything we had expected. When we walked out from our hotel at 7:30, he was standing, in a suit and tie, waiting for us. I told him we wanted to grab some food real quick, and he said he would take us to Sorrento to have breakfast. And that was the first of many surprises. He was incredibly knowledgeable, the litany of facts and trivia he was producing was amazing. And he is a proud Resident of Naples as well, he even took us on a tour of his neighborhood and schools he attended! The trip was fantastic, certainly the best tour we had this trip (and we took several).

From pick-up to drop off it was a great experience. Our guide was on time, friendly and knowledgable. We 1st went to Pompei where we were provided with a guide who's been on the dig since the beginning. Hector (archeologist), was so nice and jovial, the 4 people from our van met others from Get Your Guide for the tour (about 15 people total). Everyone was friendly and happy. There was someone from GetYourGuide there to greet each of the vans and make sure we had everything we needed. Next our guide Fabio (archeologist) and driver took us to Amalfi for a great lunch (not included in pricing) and then a ferry ride to Positano (also not included). After mini-tours/shopping of both these towns, we headed back to Rome. Fabio knows a lot about the region and history of the area including the amazing church in Amalfi and he happily shared his knowledge. He kept making sure we were happy and didn't need anything.

Such an amazing, knowledgeable tour! Had a bit of rain and got a bit wet but it was all part of a great experience (maybe pack an umbrella as they don’t sell them inside. Good for sun or rain!). We dropped luggage at the entry of the Pompeii site and all was good. Thanks again!

We absolutely loved our guide! Ricardo was very informative and passionate about Pompeii. Even at the end of the tour he suggested things to see that he thought was interesting. You’ll be lucky to have him as a guide!

Wonderful trip, highly recommended! Everything was on time and smoothly organised. Pompeii is definitely a must see and in Positan we had an opportunity enjoy some stunning views! Safe drive through all serpantines!

Ornela was very good in explaining every thing to us, and both her and the drivers were very friendly.
