If you plan on seeing Pompeii and Herculaneum you should see Vesuvius as well. Amazing views of the region and a chance to see an active (if currently very placid) volcano. Our guide was excellent and very entertaining and the driver was very good as well (believe me you want that). Worth the climb.

It was a great experience to climb to the top of the volcano! Since we had already toured Pompei, it was interesting and insightful to go to the top of the volcano. The climb to the top is a little difficult if you are out of shape but manageable since you can stop to rest as often as you need. The view from the top is amazing! The tour company arrived on time and picked me up at the hotel. It took longer than advertised since they had to pick up other people as well though. They give you just enough time to climb to the top and come back down and do a little shopping and then will drive you back to your hotel. Wear comfortable shoes!!

Climbing Mt. Vesuvius is something I've wanted to do for a long time. I noticed the 'fitness level recommendation' on the website after I'd booked the tour and since my fitness level is at UNFIT I got nervous but went ahead anyway to see how I'd go. I took my time, 30 mins and getting to the top was worth it. Make sure you wear runners or hiking boots as the pebbles on the track can get slippery.

A simple and efficient way to see and climb Mt. Vesuvius. Would recommend this trip - far easier than doing it on your own. This was a great experience.

We were supposed to go on 20th March but the weather took a turn, fog and rain up Vesuvius, visibility reduced to nothing. So the lovely guide came to our hotel and rearranged for the next day, extremely helpful and also arranged a transfer down to Sorrento as we were moving hotels on the same day. The tour itself was very good, concise information, good amount of time around the crater and friendly guide. All in all a very enjoyable day and excellent photographs.

A good trip. Had a great private mini-bus/Mercedes - had to travel to Pompeii to pick up others. Door-to-door service with polite driver and guide during journey up the mountain. Would have liked an extra 15 minutes to complete the full available trip around the crater.

Trip was good but guide was not necessary and organization of transport from Mt.Vesuvius to Naples was a little bit confusing.

The trip itself was brilliant from the bus trip (with sing along) and the 'climb'. My only issue is that we had to rush as other members had to get back for trains and their cruise ship. I felt this was unfair as we did not get the full time allowance due to the pressure placed on us by the other people. I also felt it an unreasonable demand on the guide and driver as the days timings are made very clear on booking. I would recommend it however as it was very enjoyable and the view was amazing.

an easy way to see the volcano altho the guide didnt accompany us up the final (walkable) stretch there was probably little for her to tell us at the top that she hadn't already told us.

We really should have combined our tour with the tour of Pompeii, but we didn't as we weren't sure if our incoming train to Naples would allow us enough time to check in and make the combined tour on time. Regardless, this part of the tour is really only transport to Vesuvius which you climb on your own without the guide. Vesuvius really is worth going to, so would really recommend.

A bit of difficulty phoning to re-confirm but a fantastic trip, well organized, and very slick!
