Elissa was excellent! Very knowledgeable and friendly, with just the right mix of facts and interesting anecdotes. Who knew that the width of a donkey's backside was a key measurement in launching a space shuttle?! 2 hours simply isn't long enough to do the site justice so allow yourselves more time and take heed of Elissa's tips on what to see during the rest of your visit alone.
The guide was quite knowledgeable and the information given was interesting. However it seemed that she's is completely against answering any questions and seemed a bit condescending (maybe just her way of speaking).
It's also quite hard to find the group and the guide. We stood exactly in the meeting spot, but still had to call and ask where the rest of the group is. Only then someone came to pick us up.
Also if you're taking only the Pompeii tour (without Vesuvius and/or Naples), we would recommend staying a bit longer in the archeological park and walk around on your own, because the guided tour is quite short and a bit rushed and there are so many other things to see.
Started late by 30 minutes. Maria, the guide, had good english but was tired and distracted. The tour was mediocre. Not worth the money.
Guide did not introduce himself. No radio test. Spoke too fast and impossible to understand. Raced from one spot until we were blocked by other groups. Did not speak while we walked. Spoke more to other tour guides than too our group. We got to one spot and he told us this was the longest road in Pompeii. Thats it. We raced down a hill and he told us to turn in our radios and someone would would speak to us in English. There was only a man who collected the radios. Our 2 hour tour lasted 85 minutes. The group found ourselves outside the gates. No artifacts. No free time to walk on our own. We had unknowingly exited the site. 4 of my family had never had a guided tour before. They where shocked that i paid for this total lack of service. Viator should be ashamed to have this company listed. Viator ripped me off.
We spent a fabulous morning exploring the ruins of Pompeii. Our guide Elisa was full of historical facts and fun anecdotes, lending an upbeat and lively energy to our group. The site is so large you'd easily get lost and have little context to what you're viewing without a guide - can't go wrong with this tour!
