    What to Expect
    On August 24 in the year 79 AD, nearly 2,000 years ago, the volcano Mt. Vesuvius began erupting. It blanked the nearby town of Pompeii, freezing the 20,000 denizens with its ash and molten lava, thus perfectly preserving this ancient Roman city. With this 2-hour guided walking tour, you can see the best that the archaeological site has to offer.
    Meet your guide at Cafè Hortus and prepare to be dazzled by this UNESCO World Heritage site. If there’s something in particular you’d like to see, tell your guide so he or she can tailor the tour to your liking. If not, there’s plenty of things to be wowed by.
    See the city walls and the Porta Marina gate that was once the entryway to the harbor of Pompeii. Explore the ancient theater where performances were regularly given. Gawk at what once was a Roman version of a ‘fast food’ restaurant, where vast vases still stand that were used for storing food. Stop at the Forum and learn about the political system in Pompeii and what the Forum was used for. Walk down the basalt-laden streets and squares of the city.
    See the blocks that provided stepping-stones across the often-flooded and sewage-filled streets; and view must-sees such as the Temple of Apollo, the Macellum market, and the public weighing scales.
    And, intriguingly, see the casts of victims who were immediately frozen by the volcanic eruption. Stop by the thermal baths, a popular pastime in ancient Roman times. And even visit an old brothel, also a much-enjoyed proclivity among Roman men.
    Your 2-hour tour ends at the original starting point, when you say goodbye to your guide.
    Family Tour:Have kids in tow? Opt for the family tour, which will intrigue children, thanks to games, puzzles and a map designed specifically for children. Your guide will also tailor the route in a way that is geared for the youngsters. It’s a truly engaging way for them to discover the city and learn about life here long ago. After two hours, the family tour ends at the starting point when you bid farewell to your guide.

    We had a good tour with our guide in Pompeii but we were a bit disappointed. It clearly states that it is a skip the line tour yet tickets were not purchased in advance. We had to wait quite a while with crowds of people...More

    There were 5 of us on tour. My apologies, but do not recall price per person. This should be listed on tour site.
