Overall the tour was adequate. The hike up Mount Vesuvius was fantastic.
I was disappointed in two things on the tour. First I thought only having an hour and half in Pompeii was way too short and the local tour guide we had in Pompeii was not good. He gave very little detail, didn’t come into the bath house with us and gave us little to no information about the forum.
The second disappointing part was the two stops the trip made in the tourist trap called Casino. Out of the 13 hour tour we wasted about an hour at this dank, run down gift shop in the middle of nowhere. All the food was overpriced and the adjacent gift shop was awful. The quality of the items were poor, the prices were high and it felt like complete tourist trap set up to get all the tour bus going and coming from Pompeii. It was such a waste of time. I would have rather used the time spent here to actually see something meaningful.
The trip was not as well run as other trips we took during our vacation. There was a lot of time wasted at the 2 stops in Casino and at the place they took us for lunch.
The morning section of this tour was fantastic. We had such an enthusiastic guide for the tours of the colosseum and the forum. It was great!
The afternoon walking tour of the Spanish steps, Trevi fountain and the squares was a bit of stretch. There was definitely not enough content to justify a 4 hours walking tour. It was okay but I would recommend other people to only do the morning tours because you can easily do the attractions covered in the afternoon tour on your own with a map.
Great tours. Covered all the important items and the skip the line access was perfect.
Great tour; one of the highlights of our vacation. The wine tasting and lunch was fantastic. Definitely worth the time and the money!
