Take advantage of our exclusive access and skip the long lines at the ruins of Pompeii. This 2-hour, official tour will provide you with the perfect overview of this ancient site’s amazing history.
You will be free to travel independently to Pompeii before joining our meeting point near the entrance of the Archaeological ruins, where your expert guide will be waiting to escort you in.
All tour operators are obliged to use official, local tour guides in Pompeii and we’ve selected the most entertaining and knowledgeable available to ensure that you get the most out of your tour. You’ll enjoy in-depth commentary and stories of Roman life in this once-bustling town. Our licensed Pompeii guides are also expert English speakers and use audio headsets, so you can rest assured that you won’t miss a word as they lead you through the site.
In a small group of 30 people or less, you will explore examples of every building in Pompeii – from homes to bath houses, fast food stores to outdoor theaters. Examine the chilling death casts of animals and people caught in the volcanic ash of Mt. Vesuvius and learn about the final days of Pompeii from your expert guide. Continue to follow your guide as they show you what each building was used for, where people ate their meals, did laundry, socialized, and where sailors went when they docked.
Changes made to bookings within the 72 hour window will be subject to rebooking fees to cover the cost of tickets purchased, transport, guide rescheduling, headsets and administration.
We strongly advise against arriving at the meeting point without a booking as we cannot guarantee that there will be space left on the tour. Our guides are unable to accept payment for tours so any bookings made on the spot will still need to be processed over the phone with payment by credit card.
We are happy to assist with this request - availability permitting. Please contact our Customer Care Team who can check availability on the tour and take payment for the additional booking, as payment details are not saved in our system for security reasons.
