    Pompeii Archaeological Park
    Stop: 2 hours - Admission included
    See Pompeii’s ancient piazza and Forum, where business dealings, elections, speeches and processions would have played out during Roman times. Wander the site, marvel at the ancient limestone columns still standing today and capture the centuries-old scenery on camera. Continue onward with your guide to the thermal baths, where many of the townsfolk would have bathed, chatted and lived out their daily lives before the eruption. Wander down Via degli Augustali and discover the Lupanare, Pompeii’s brothel. A 2-storey building with five rooms on each floor, the Lupanare is decorated with some of the city’s most lustful frescoes. Your exact route will depend on the crowds and weather conditions.

We used Project Napoli to hire a private driver to take us from Sorrento to Pompeii on a private tour of Pompeii this past spring. As a family of four with an 8 month old baby and a four year old, this was absolutely the best decision we could have made and the money spent was well worth it. The driver (I'm so sorry, I can't remember his name) was courteous and on time and gave us a really smooth trip to Pompeii and back.

Our tour guide Francesca was amazing! We were one of her first tours after Italy began reopening to tourists, and she was more than willing to entertain the questions of our four year old as well as allow us time to stop and take pictures. She really made Pompeii come alive and it's an experience we won't soon forget. I would highly recommend this service to anyone looking to take the hassle out of travel and just use the car and driver service and the private tour guide at Pompeii. Make sure to ask for Francesca to give you your tour as she is one of the best.

Our guide was local and very knowledgeable. He claimed to be active in the archeology field there and, based on his through explanations, I'm sure this was the case. (We have been on other tours elsewhere where the guide was only leading us around. This was not the case here.) He met us on time at the entrance and proceeded to give us a good introduction prior to actually going inside. He was enthusiastic and never boring.
Our enjoyment was increased by visiting on the prior day the outstanding archeology museum in Naples, where many of the frescoes, mosaics and statues are displayed. But we were impressed that there are still a lot of works there on site. It is not some burned out ruin. It has a life and a story to tell.

I really enjoyed this half day trip to Pompeii.
Pick up was agreed the day prior, somewhere near where I was staying (I just WhatsApp'd the number on the ticket). 10am pick up so not too early. Quick drive to Pompeii in a very clean and air conditioned mini van, shared with a few other people.
The guide shared a few bits of info on the way.
Once on site, we were provided with little listening devices to hear out guide.
The tour of Pompeii lasted 2 hours and was great.
Lovely guide, providing loads of great information.
2 hours flew by!
We were then given about 30mins or so, free times to browse the stalls or get something to eat/drink and just wonder, before getting back on the mini bus.
Back in Naples at 14:30
A bit chaotic at times, especially at the time of leaving Pompeii but not a massive deal.
Would be great to have an option for a later pick up so you can explore more of Pompeii without a guide but still with the transfer later in the day.

Did get picked up from a spot near hotel, got a WhatsApp message the night before giving us a phone store to meet outside of. Took a van to a point with other buses and then took a large bus to Pompeii. Once there, got sorted in to groups and began the tour. Tour is of the architectural ruins with all the artifacts removed and in various museums. Was very hot and crowded and difficult to hear. The main attractions like houses etc had long lines of tour groups waiting for their turns to walk through. After the tour, we were given an hour of “free time” around the tourist shops outside of the ruins. Then spent about 30-45 minutes getting organized on to different vans to go to different drop off spots. Left Pompeii to go back to Napoli around 2:45 which we felt was very late for the half day. Overall not worth time and money, would recommend stopping at Pompeii stop off the train to look around the museum and walk through quickly instead if u want to see it.

This was supposed to be a 4 hour tour and instead ended up being a 5+ hour tour. It was because when we got to Pompeii, we had to wait for other groups to get there so we could be put together into a large group. We had to wait 45 min in the heat outside the ruins just hanging around. The tour group into Pompeii was over 30 people, way too large. We had an audio headset which helped. The tour guide, however, was very good and did his best to get us around the very crowded site. At the end, we had to wait another 45 min for other groups to finish so they could put us all on a big bus together back to the port. There was a lot of extra wasted time standing around waiting on a very hot day so they could maximize profits. I would not recommend this tour.

This tour was very disorganized and the communication was poor. The audio devices were also very low quality so it was difficult to hear the guide. They need to improve in keeping customers informed, as we were left wondering the entire time, which was completely unnecessary.

This tour was great as it was packed with as much as could be seen in a short period of time. We were contacted the night before with a meeting place/time a block from our hotel in Naples (Hotel Matilde). We were brought to Pompeii in a very nice and comfortable van with another group of tourists. The guide was very clear about the plan for the day. Once we got to the ruins of Pompeii, we met our tour guide and were given a radio so that we would be able to hear her at all times. Our group consisted of about 15 people including our family of 5. We saw and learned a lot. Once the tour was over, we boarded the van back to Naples. There was some free time where we could do some shopping or get a snack/drink as well. Overall, it was a great tour and exactly what we were expecting in every way. Our tour guide Francesca was wonderful.

Super convenient and reasonably priced for a half day tour. Guide was knowledgeable and had lots of really great useful facts that she shared. Headsets were provided so able to always hear and still look around other areas nearby at the same time.

Pick up was convenient and the transfer minibus was clean and comfortable.

Overall, a really great experience and few hours exploring Pompeii, would recommend.

I thought this place was a little boring especially due to the time period we had to wait and for everyone and tour guide also rushed us due to the following tour that was going to take place next. I thought it was very boring and I could have used my time in something else. Not really worth the money either.

Incredibly well-preserved city with fascinating examples of how people actually lived during the Roman Empire. The photo everyone sees of the petrified person is such a small and minor part of the tour, which is too bad because the rest of it is so much more interesting and enlightening. Andreas was an incredible tour guide with tremendous knowledge and a great sense of humor. Highly recommend!
