I would definitely recommend this tour. We were able to walk in front of the already forming line and enter the Vatican before the official opening time. We were then able to do the tour without the accompanying crowds. Our guide was very informative and personable. We were nearly finished with our tour by the time the crowds began to pour in. We had to wait only a few minutes in line for the dome climb. Beware of the coffee/pastry shop right next to the meeting spot before the tour… it is a tourist trap!
Intermediate biking experience is helpful as there are some difficult hills to climb. We had no problem walking our bikes, though. The downhills and beautiful scenery made it all worthwhile. The winery tour was very nice and the lunch was delicious. I would highly recommend this tour.
We thoroughly enjoyed this trip. It was amazing how well preserved Pompeii was considering it was 79 AD when it was buried. It was like stepping back in time. The hike up Mt. Vesuvius was great. The views were awesome. The pizza lunch was delicious. The tour guides were entertaining. I would highly recommend this trip.
