When we first arrived at the meeting point on a wet, dull morning we were concerned the trip might be cancelled or no-one else would turn up but we had a full bus of 40 eager tourists and 2 knowledgeable guides. Robert, one of the guides, was full of fascinating information not just about that day's trip but everything to do with Rome and Italy and we could have listened to him for hours. The tour around Pompeii was good but felt a little rushed - it wasn't until we looked at the city map afterwards that we realised we had only seen a small quarter of it and would love to return and explore more. Lunch was pizza at one of the busiest restaurants I've ever been to as it was all bus tours but considering that it was well organised without feeling rushed. Our group were literally the last of the season to go up Mount Vesuvius and I only made it half way but my friend got to the top and marveled at the sight. This was a long day and you did need good walking shoes / plenty of stamina but it gave a fascinating insight on life in ancient Roman times and the tour guide inspired us to find out so much more - well worth the money.
