Fantastic. Picked up and dropped off right at the front door of our hotel. Tour Guide for bus gave alot of history of Napoli. Tour Guide at Pompeii very knowledgeable and gave us more than I had ever hoped for. Tour Guide was also very observant and realized I would not be able to make the walk up the mountain, but made sure I was comfortable and was waiting somewhere he would find me. Highly recommend this adventure to everyone!
This tour was amazing! Gave us exactly what the description indicates. Tour guide Andrea was amazing, funny and knowledgable. It was an amazing day!
What an amazing trip! My partner and I had been waiting a long time to do this and we were not disappointed. The guide we had was excellent and he explained everything in extensive detail. I should add that he spoke very clear English and there was no need for an audio guide. The ruins of Pompeii where breathtaking and you get a real sense of the way people lived with the guides story-telling. Would highly recommend this tour!
Great trip but if anything a little overpriced compared with other tours we did while travelling round Italy. The Pompeii visit was about 2 hours and about the right amount of time for us. The group was fairly large but the guide was very good and kept us all interested. Mount Vesuvius was good and I'm glad we did it! My biggest disappointment with the tour was the fact that we weren't given time to look round the souvenirs and buy postcards. Instead we were shipped straight from the ruins to lunch then on a bus to Mt Vesuvius. Lunch itself wasn't great and it would be better if people were asked to make their own lunch arrangements, giving them time to eat and shop before setting off for the volcano. This would then also make the trip cheaper. In addition it would be better if the tour were to start an hour earlier so that you could get the most out of your entrance fee to Pompeii.
Great trip out to Pompeii with a very informative guide, took us to all the places where I probably would have missed if I was on my own. Got a an air conditioned car to Mt Vesuvius, about 20-30 walk to the top. The tough walk to the top is worth it after seeing the view of the Bay of Naples.
Excellent trip to Pompeii , even though our guide was a fill in She did fine. Driver was great. Went we got to Mt Vesuvious we couldn't climb to top due to rain and mud slide. A little disappointed but mostly a great tour!
Fabulous day tour, our guide through Pompeii was very knowledgable and the walk to the crater was well worth the climb - you will not be disappointed. The only negative feedback from many of us on the day was the constant counting of numbers by the tour operators - esp in Pompeii where we lined up at least 5 times within 15min in the hot sun for the tour operator to count us before our lunch because she kept getting different figures. This happened again after lunch - I would suggest a better counting system as this wasted so much time throughout the day esp in the heat which was over 30 degrees.
seeing an active volcano was amazing.. Pompeii was amazing too... loved the history in the city
Great tour guide, he was funny and knowledgeable. Skip-the-line tickets were also a great time saver. The mountain climb was enjoyable even though the weather wasn't great. A jacket is a must as it can get quite cold up at the top. Pompeii was great although there were a lot of people there. Would be worth going at a less populated time. Being picked up and dropped off at the train station was excellent and made the day much easier. Lunch was also delicious. A must-do tour if you have the time.
POMPEII WAS ONE OF THE HIGHLIGHTS OF OUR TRIP TO ITALY, OUR GUIDE WAS TERRIFIC, (SORRY I FORGOT HIS NAME). HE MADE IT INTERESTING AND ENJOYABLE, HE SPOKE GREAT ENGLISH AND POPEII ITSELF IS A WONDERFUL TIME CAPSULE. IT WAS SOMINTERESTING AS HOW MANY MODERN DAY EXPRESSIONS AND ITEMS WERE INFLUENCED BY A CIVILISATION SO LONG AGO.
VESUVIUS WAS ALSO GOOD BUT OUR GUIDE FOR THIS PART OF THE TRIP WAS USLESS, TOLD US VERY LITTLE ABAOUT THE VOLCANO. THE CRATER WASN'T AS IMPRESSSIVE AS I HAD IMAGINED BUT STILL WORTH THE HIKE.
The Tour was great. ANDREA the guide was funny and explained all the historical details even the smallest one. Great job.
I just have to say the local tour company that provides the tour was superb!! We were coming by train into Naples to catch the tour bus but we took the wrong train and missed the bus. The gentleman at the office helped coordinate a minivan to pick my family up and get us to Pompeii to catch up with the tour. He was patience and very helpful and I can't commend him enough for everything he did to get us on track with the tour. The tour was amazing and Andres (hopefully I got his name right), the tour guide, was informative and very funny. He made the tour enjoyable even though we were melting under the sun's heat. The climb up Vesuvius was great and had a wonderful view. I would highly recommend this tour, it's not one to miss.
