Sorrento Holiday
Jul 2019
Train and to Pompeii from Sorrento was terrible. Very late and packed both there and back.
It was also boiling hot and there was next to no shade at Pompeii train station. Skip the line tour seemed like a waste of money as we just walked into to Pompeii and found our own way round pretty easily

Probably would've been better if we had a nicer tour guide
May 2019
I chose this tour because we were staying in Sorrento and I wanted help with navigating the local train from there to Pompeii as I've read they're "sketchy". We all met at the train station and right away everyone in the tour group noticed that our guide had an attitude. Not sure if she didn't like Americans or tourists in general. We all followed her onto the train and got off at the stop in Pompeii, although it was hard to hear or see her because she was so small and the train was packed shoulder to shoulder. Apparently, they decided to skip running some of the trains that morning so they had way more people on them than usual. Any way, once at Pompeii, I heard another person on the tour say "maybe now she'll be nice to us?" Every one seemed to be in agreement about the tour guides attitude. Got through the tour and she did do a good job giving us a lot of information. At the end of the tour she said, "I have to go visit family so you all can get on the train "over there" and go back yourselves"! What? The whole reason I chose this tour was to have someone escort us on the train and now she's abandoning us?! You get on the train on a totally different side of the venue than where we got off the train. You couldn't see the station from where she pointed so we were kind of lost at first and had to ask directions from several vendors on the street. If I knew our tour guide was going to be like that, I would've just planned another day touring the Amalfi Coast instead.

Dear rbinsunnyfla Thank you for your review on our 'Pompei Express' tour. All our guides are always very helpful and kind to all customers; nationality has never been a problem. As concerns the return to Sorrento, it is not written in the description that customers will be escorted by the guide on their way back.The guide provides information on how to get back to the trains, just opposite to the ruins exit, or inform them that they can stay longer into the ruins and explore more areas in Pompei on their own. We are glad that you appreciated the job she did and that you had a good explanation of the ruins. Thank you for taking the time to tell us about your experience Best regards from us all at Belmare Travel

Phew! What a scorcher.
Sep 2019
Well organised (despite my initial reservation), everything ran pretty seamlessly. Downside was: Train journey out was packed, standing room only. The actual tour was good, very knowledgeable guide. Downside: Weather was scorchio, 30 degrees, obviously little shade. Return journey was a nightmare. One train was cancelled so the next one was absolutely chocca, and hot?? we are talking HOT. Still, cannot blame the tour organisers for the weather or the vagaries of the Italian transport system.

Great day at Pompeii
Oct 2019
We were very happy with this tour. We were meet by the tour operator at the train station and introduced to our guide who explained were to get on and off the train. At Pompeii our guide was very informative and happy to answer any questions. After the tour we have plenty of time to explore Pompeii on our own.

Excellent day out
Oct 2019 • Family
We thoroughly enjoyed our trip to Pompeii under the friendly and knowledgeable care of Jessica. Pompeii is a very large site so having a guide is essential. It is a fascinating place and well worth a visit. The train journey is around 40 mins from Sorrento. The carriages themselves aren’t anything special and are crowded.
I wouldn’t leave planning this trip for your last day as on arrival to the station we were informed the trip was cancelled due to an electrical fault on the train. The trip was changed to the following day with no extra charge, but we could have easily missed out!

ciao BJLIreland Thank you for sharing such a wonderful feedback! We are delighted to read that you enjoyed our “Skip the line Pompei Express” tour! Jessica is an excellent guide as all the other guides :-) Unfortunately there was a fire in another station on the same line connecting Sorrento and Naples and that caused electrical problems to all the line. You can understand that this cannot be controlled. We hope to see you on your next trip to Sorrento. Best wishes, from us Fatima at Bemare Travel

Went on the train to Naples, best to book tickets the day before, as you then get first access to get on the train before all of the other passengers. Very busy mostly nose to face when standing.
