Naples, Italy

My Review

Our trip to pompeii, and our guide "Andi", was very interesting and entertaining... He made sure to interact with everyone, and make you feel like you were part of the tour, and not just observing... He pointed out ordinary over-look-able items in the ruins, and brought them to life with stories and explanations which were both comical and relevant...

To be honest, we found the Vesuvius section of the tour was rushed and dissapointing...

Our guide was switched to "Maria" who took us for lunch, then pointed out a few things in the bus, but did not join the group to go up to the crater, so there was no information about the volcano, its eruptions, history etc... it was basically a shuttle-service to the crater trail, and "meet you back here in 1 hour..." I expected more of a guided or informative visit, like we experienced in Pompeii... Overall, nonetheless, it was a great day, and was not a bad value overall...

My only suggestion for those considering taking the Vesuvius portion of this tour is either hire the vucanologist at the crater to get at least some information and explanations, or be content with a solitary but admittedly beautifully scenic walk onto the mountain...
