Headsets weren’t very good and kept losing connection. Plus we had to be taken to a jewellery shop which no one knew we were going to. Would of been nicer to have had a bit longer then 15 mins to get something to eat

If you can't walk on uneven surfaces or up hills; don't take this tour. If you can, you will be transported into another time. Incredible history in both Sorrento and also Pompeii.

Just had a couple of hours there at the end of our day round the Amalfi Coast but what an amazing place to visit, very sad when you think what happened there, but incredible how well it has been excavated and preserved.

Totally awesome place to see. It rained while I was there but I didn’t even mind, I was totally lost in the history. There is also a great pizza place across the street from the main entrance.

We started by visiting a cameo factory. I purchased 3 pendants, one for myself, one for my mother, and one for my mother-in-law. My mom says it is the best gift she has ever received! Pompeii is truly amazing. We could have spent three more days here just to see that we started to understand how special this place is. Our tour guide Antonella and our bus drive Luigi truly made this tour. We weren't too big of a group- around 20. While we saw a lot, there was a lot we couldn't get to due to time. WE enjoyed Naples and hope to return here someday to explore more! Read Less

This was for us the entire point of the cruise- a life long goal to stand in Pompeii and see it. after the long drive to Amalfi, a short drive to a restaurant for a horrible lunch, we had 50 minutes in Pompeii. Then he pushed us into the shopping area to buy horrible orange juice and the other tourist trap garbage being sold there. The guide was really great, but this was absolutely NOT what we expected from a 9.5 hour tour that promised lots of time to see the ruins. Pompeii is less than 30 minutes from the cruise ship. Get your own transportation and make it a day. We have to go back to italy so I can actually see Pompeii, and it will definitely NOT be with this cruise line or with an excursion that I don't have control over. Read Less

I found the tour very interesting and good value for money. We purchased while on offer through the celebrity web site. It was very hot and there was very little shade. Glad i took a hat.

Another highlight. Learned so much about Pompeii. I encourage folks to read the descriptions of these excursions carefully. People with us seemed surprised at the amount of walking and how rough the terrain would be. Highly recommend.

Guided tour (inside the entrance) is expensive (120 euro for 2 hours), but very much worth the money - everything we saw with the guide we did not see when we had visited previously on our own without a guide.

The guide was very good and the experience of walking through the ancient ruins was unforgettable. This is a destination that should be on every travel bucket list. There was an unnecessary detour to a jewellery factory that served no purpose except selling some stuff to a captive tourist audience. Most of us on the coach stayed put, with only a few brave souls stepping out to check out the wares on sale. Read Less
