Heraculaneum in the autumn
, Oct 2021
Efficient and punctual pick up downtown. Ales so is an excellent guide, well-informed, an expert! Great morning, highly recommend this tour!
Excellent Highlight Tour
, Nov 2019
Nice compressed tour with very experienced guide. Don't let the craziness of the Naples cruise port get you down- it can be very busy if several boats in port. Having been to Pompeii, this site is more preserved with a volicaniclastic mud flow rather than the ash Pompeii encountered. Beautiful frescos and tiled floors preserved and a much smaller area to experience with no crowds. We loved it!
Tough Herculaneum tour
, Oct 2019
We were very disappointed starting at the beginning of the tour when we were supposed to meet up with the guide. It was complete chaos at the cruise terminal. Our tour guide was late by almost 30 minutes, and then we waited another 25 minutes for a passenger that never showed up. We booked a small group tour of Herculaneum in English. Then there were several Italians that required a 2 language presentation. Shortly after the tour began, The guide allowed an additional Spanish couple to join us and then he had to interpret in three different languages. This made the tour much longer than was necessary. Viator needs to regulate the tour guide company more closely. These several issues detracted from our overall enjoyment of the archaeology site.

Fascinating tour

A wonderful insight into ancient life . Our guide Nancy is passionate about history and answered all our questions with enthusiasm.
Nice Overview Tour of Herculaneum

After a bit of a stumble on picking up passengers at the chaotic cruise port gate, the rest of our time was welll spent. Our guide, Roberto was very knowledgeable, and despite a little accent was easily understood. The amount of time on-site at two hours was just right for those who have general interest, but be a little short for die-hards. Still, on a hot day, it was ample. Most of the high spots in The town were covered. Thoroughly enjoyable!
Fantastic exploration

We were a group of 10 people with Alessio Montello as our guide. We got out from hotel to arrive before the crowds. Alessio was warm and really took the time to tell us what life was like in Herculaneum before the eruption. This was one of the highlights of a three day stay in Naples. The pick and drop off at our hotel was a huge bonus. I would totally recommend this tour.
Worst Tour of Herculaneum
, Jun 2019
This 1/2 day tour ending up being 2:50 hours total from pick-up to drop off. Drive time was 50 minutes, tour length was 1:15 and 45 minutes spent in the parking lot waiting. The van didn't have A/C and after we had to ask for water it was hot. The tour guide was not very knowledgeable. At times during the tour she had to read form a guide book. When asked questions she, most of the time, refereed to her book. She didn't know the difference between a Lemon Tree, Olive Tree and Red Rose Sharon Althea Tree. The tour operator was Worldtour. I can not recommend this tour at all.

Trip to Herculaneum
, May 2019
We have booked many tours with Viator in many European countries and have been very happy. However, we were the only two on the tour to Herculaneum. Instead of cancelling as stated in the information if there were not enough passengers, we were dropped off at the site with no guide and given only 2 hours to explore. We were given money to buy an audio guide, but wish instead we had been given more hours at the site or were given advance notice that no guide would be available.

Great Tour

Of all the tours I took in Naples, this was by far the best. Pickup was prompt. Our guide and driver pointed out sites during the process of driving through the city, and on the way to the site gave a real feel for the history of Herculaneum.A added bonus - the company (WorldTours) provided complimentary bottles of water prior to the tour. Just a nice little thoughtful touch.Our guide Michael, was both knowledgeable and informative. We explored the entire site including areas of interest which I did not see other tours visiting. Not many tour guides manage to maintain their enthusiasm for the job but he made Herculaneum come alive.To summarize - if you have an interest in history - this is a tour worth taking.Some additional thoughts. This site, although smaller than Pompeii, is still reasonably large and requires significant walking. On a hot day, some head protection might be appropriate. There is also a large staircase at the end of the tour to get back to the entrance - pace yourself.
