Great
The “Pompeii Tour from Rome with Almalfi Coast Drive” has three excellent elements, one mediocre element, and one abysmal element. The excellent elements are the ruins of Pompeii, the official guide that joins the group in Pompeii, and the time spent (including the restaurants you can walk to) in Sorrento (when the tour is taken during the winter, otherwise it will be Amalfi). The mediocre element is the amount of driving you’ll experience (with no scenery) and the somewhat uncomfortable bus you’ll be spending about 7 hours on. The worst, and I mean almost a dealbreaker element is where you stop for a quick breakfast on the way to Pompeii. You’ll be subjected to a complete tourist trap of a minimart with prepackaged food, no marked prices, and then an astronomical bill once you’ve stood in the long line and pick out what to order. Honestly, this reflects very poorly on Walks, Devour, and City Experiences because it feels like they are not looking out for their customers and instead, subjecting them to precisely what we are paying a lot of money to NOT experience. Would it really be that hard to stop a coffee shop instead of a truck stop? There are only about 8,000 caffès to choose from between Rome and Pompeii. Seriously, what a joke and a scam. Shame on you.

Eileen was the best tour guide I’ve had. She provided just the right amount of information and her passion for Italy is exactly what I would want if I was the owner.

I greatly enjoyed this tour from Rome to Pompeii and Positano. Our tour guide was very professional, kind, and informative. He made sure to make a stop on the way there and the way back in case anyone needed a restroom or snack. He also made a point in Positano to help familiarize the group with the area. Overall, I had a very nice time and greatly enjoyed the Pompeii portion especially!

We only had a week in Italy. After spending several days in Rome, we wanted to see more outside the city. This tour was perfect for us to see Pompeii and learn it's history, and to also see the stunning views on the Amalfi Coast. We wish we could've had more time in Positano as this is a lovely little town! We loved every minute of this tour and we thankful for our guide and expert bus driver!

Yes! Although be aware that there is not always a lifeguard on duty in the areas you might want to swim so you will be getting in the water at your own risk.
Can I use this tour as a transfer to Positano?
Unfortunately our transport vans do not have enough space to accommodate luggage so it's not possible to use this tour as a transfer to Positano from Rome. Moreover, on some occasions the tour stops in Positano before Pompeii and does not return to the town afterwards.
Is lunch included?
No. Your guide will give you a few great recommendations for lunch spots and give you plenty of time, but where and what you eat is up to you.
Is Pompeii accessible to people in wheelchairs?
The streets of Pompeii have never been repaved or smoothed over so much of the city is nearly impossible to navigate for those with mobility impairments. If you use a wheelchair there is a special route for you, so please contact our customer service department for details.
Can I bring a bag with me into Pompeii?
Small bags and purses are allowed inside Pompeii.
