Discover the archaeological ruins of Pompeii, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, on a private tour using a 3D virtual reality headset. Go back in time on this immersive, 360-degree experience that shows you Pompeii as it once was, just before it was destroyed by the eruption of Mt Vesuvius in 79 AD. Wearing the headset, you’ll watch short historical re-creations of Pompeii’s main points of interest with audio commentary. This tour does not include a guide; you’ll be escorted by an assistant, who cannot answer questions or provide historical information.

  • This tour uses 3D virtual reality headsets (Samsung/Oculus Gear VR). We recommend consulting a doctor before taking this tour if you are pregnant, elderly, have pre-existing binocular vision abnormalities or psychiatric disorders, or suffer from a heart condition or other serious medical condition.
  • Some people (about 1 in 4000) while they are watching TV, playing video games or experiencing virtual reality may have severe dizziness. Anyone who has had a seizure, loss of awareness, or other symptom linked to an epileptic condition should consult a doctor before taking our tour.
  • Children: It is recommended by the manufacturer that the headsets provided should not be used by children under the age of 13 (Gear VR). Parents allowing their children to use the headsets do so at their own risk and are fully responsible for the safety, health and well-being of their children. Adults should monitor children closely during and after use of the Gear VR for any decrease in these abilities.
  • A comfortable tour experience using our headsets requires an unimpaired sense of motion and balance.

Just as with the symptoms people can experience after they disembark a cruise ship, symptoms of virtual reality exposure can persist and become more apparent hours after use.
  • Radio Frequency Interference: The Gear VR can emit radio waves that can affect the operation of nearby electronics, including cardiac pacemakers. If you have a pacemaker or other implanted medical device, do not use the Gear VR without first consulting your doctor or the manufacturer of your medical device.

My husband and I did this tour with our sons ages 11 and 14. We thought the tour was very informative about the Pompeii ruins and we thoroughly enjoyed the virtual reality aspect. My husband is a computer scientist and my older son plays a lot of video games. While they both wished the graphics could be better, we all agreed that historical recreations were an excellent use of virtual reality. It added a new dimension to what we got out of our time at Pompeii. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend the tour in its current form and I look forward to what virtual reality will provide in the future. Our tour assistant was extremely helpful. She made sure we enjoyed our tour and helped us budget our time with both the virtual reality stops and our picture taking opportunities.

Wir würden diesen Ausflug auf jeden Fall weiterempfehlen, es war eine geniale Erfahrung mit diesem 3D-Headset in eine über 2000 Jahre alte Geschichte einzutauchen und so eine Vorstellung von den historischen beeindruckenden Bauten, Tempeln und dem damaligen Leben der Pompejaner zu bekommen.
