This tour was fantastic and well worth the money. We considered trying to do Pompeii on our own with the "fast" train from Rome to Naples, then the circumvesuviana train from Naples to Pompeii, then the shuttle from Pompeii to Mt Vesuvius, but this was SO much easier! The bus was comfortable and made a rest stop during the trip to and from Pompeii, the tour guides on the bus and in Pompeii were very knowledgeable, the pizza lunch was good (although the salad was a bit heavy on the oil), and the views from Mt Vesuvius were breathtaking (warning - it's a pretty good climb up the mountain). It was a long day but it was absolutely fabulous!!
This tour was absolutely fantastic. You literally do skip the line that wraps around the Vatican ... we were inside in a matter of minutes while others must have been waiting for hours. Our guide Agnes was extremely knowledgeable about everything, very witty, and gave great suggestions on other places to see. After the tour, take the stairs to St Peter's cupola ... the view is breathtaking and well worth the climb.
