Sorrento Pompeii Walking Tour Excursion Reviews

Only 30 minutes from Sorrento, tour the ancient city of Pompeii with its winding roads, chilling ruins, and remarkably preserved architecture.
Sorrento is a lovely little town, we did a day trip to Pompeii, which was stellar.

Sorrento is a lovely little town, we did a day trip to Pompeii, which was stellar. Had some great gnocchi at Il Pozzo, and wish we would have been able to spend more time, but this stop was cut short due to the issues with the ship.

You can see the homes, theater (by class), brothel (with menu), roads where sewage flowed, lunch time restaurants w/soup pots, cells for athletes, water fountains (by class), pots to grind grain for bread, bathhouse (for networking, news and information sharing), pots, casts of bodies and a dog. This tour was fabulous. It is amazing to experience Pompeii the way it was experienced by residents. Read Less

good, but too long for such a hot and humid day. It is a wonderful place to visit, but walking in the hot sun for 4 hours is not fun.

The tour to Pompeii was great, & fascinating. We were in Naples, because the sea was too rough to drop anchor off of Sorrento. We were there 2 days, so we got to do the ship's version of the Amalfi Coast. Unfortunately, this turned out to be a drive to Positano, which is wonderful, but we did NOT see much of the Amalfi drive before going to lunch (only about a third of it.) Would have preferred a quick lunch & doing the real drive! Read Less

First we’re taken by small bus up a very steep narrow road to a bus depot and transferred to our tour bus for Herculaneum and Pompeii. The drive is so pretty with many views (though too fast) of the famed Amalfi coast. And then we’re at the astoundingly preserved Herculaneum! Wow! The Mt Vesuvius eruption in 79 AD destroyed the coastline and covered the area under 13-20 feet of ash and pumice, basically preserving everything due to lack of air and moisture. Herculaneum was a smaller village, with 4000 people on 49 acres. Only a quarter is open. Pompeii was a prosperous port town with 11,000 people on 163 acres, most of which has been excavated. The structures, mosaics, sense of life frozen in place, the casts of bodies and skeletons are astonishing. We went quickly through most of Herculaneum but only had time to do a portion of two sections of Pompeii. Loved seeing both in the shadow of Mt Vesuvius still. Read Less

This excursion was the highlight of my trip. I have wanted to see this site for many, many years and this tour exceeded my expectations. I wish I could recall our tour leader's name. He spoke very good English and had a wry sense of humor which I very much enjoyed. He had also worked on the excavation of Pompeii in 1959 and had many first hand experience stories to tell us. It was very moving when on a rare occasion, I could see the emotion in our tour guides words as he escorted us through the site. What an amazing experience! Read Less
