This was an excellent day. Really enjoyed this. Could have done with 30 mins extra at Vesuvius to get right to the end of the walkway. Should have walked faster!

One of the highlights of our trip. It was 97 degrees on the day of our trip so it was a scorcher but our guide was so kind and fun it really made it tolerable. The guide was also very informative about the city and its history. Lunch was wonderful. We had pizza and actually, I thought it was better than the original pizza we had in Naples. The ride to Vesuvius is 40 minutes on a comfortable motor coach.The hike up Vesuvius was no joke, about 25 minute walk up, a bit steep but doable. It is completely worth it. The views are amazing!

The tours of both Pompeii and Mt Vesuvius were splendid. It was very hot and the crowds were immense but our excellent guide and the outstanding bus driver both did great, professional jobs. We saw and experienced everything we wanted and had a nice lunch to boot!

The trip ran on time and the guide was really informative. I would recommend seeing Pompeii with a guide like this tour rather than just walking around. We learned a lot!

Outstanding tour! Our guide was energetic and knowledgeable with a great sense of humor. We were picked up and dropped off at our hotel reducing the hassle of finding where to meet up. Our guide took us to a lunch spot off the beaten path. We would not have had the same experience doing the trip ourselves-well worth the money spent.

This was a well organized trip that I was glad of once I saw the queues to pay for Pompeii ! Our enthusiastic guide was Andrea who was brilliant-knowledgeable,funny and informative. He included everybody, made sure we were all together all the time and he managed to hold everybody's interest. We were given plenty of time to look at the sights, take photos, drink water etc.
Lunch was pizza/spaghetti served by harassed, bordering on rude, waitresses in an airconditioned restaurant but it was a welcome rest from the heat and the food was good.
Onto the mighty Vesuvius by coach after lunch, during which Andrea regaled us with wit and facts. The coach dropped us at the highest parking point and then we walked at our own pace to the top with plenty of time to do this without rushing. Finally the coach dropped us off at a convenient point for our hotel.
I would recommend this tour if you want to see these historical sights without any hassle. The souvenir madness is abundant in both areas but you dont have to engage with them--unless you want to!!

Would recommend trip good value for money. We where picked up from hotel and from start to finish everything ran very smoothly. Be prepared! the volcano walk is not for the faint hearted, 30mins of climbing up a steep slope that was like sand...worth it though, views at the top are amazing. Definitely worth doing the trip

Excellent tour guide and very informative day. It made the day so much easier travelling with a guide and as part of a great group of people. Highly recommend.

Everything worked as promised. The guide was great. We noticed that some people in the group were not properly prepared for a hot summer day in July, so reserve enough water with you and protect yourself from the sun. There are not so many shadowed spots in Pompeii. Also, use comfortable shoes for walking up to the summit of Vesuvius, since there are lots of loose sand on the way up.

Great day - Andre was a great guide very knowledgeable, funny, and good with interacting with my kids - 11 and 12. Enjoyed both Pompeii and Mt Vesuvius, atlhough that climb was a bit tougher than I expected. Well worth it!

This is a great trip and works well with the cruise ship schedule. We arrive to port on Royal Allure and the rep was there. After picking up several individuals at several locations, left the area and headed to Pompeii. Great day, great guide and great memories. Would recommend this tour

What an amazing experience! Our tour guide for Pompeii was very detailed, interesting and just did an excellent job! We then were able to get out of the hot sun and enjoy a nice pizza lunch at a great local restaurant. Climbing to the top of Mt Vesuvius was spectacular. I definitely recommend!

This was a great tour. Naples itself is not really a pretty city, but outside of it at Pompeii and Mt. Vesuvius it was great. Remember to bring lots of water if it is July as it is quite hot.

The trip up to Vesuvius was well worth the hike!

Had a great time exploring Pompeii and Mt Vesuvius. Pompeii is a large city and while the weather might have been very hot mid 90's in the summer - so a fall or spring visit might be a bit nicer, a bit longer in the ruins might have been nice. That being said, we did learn a lot about Roman life in Pompeii. Our guide was fantastic, and they had three different guides for three different languages. Lunch was a welcome break and the views of and from the mountain were worth the heat.

Great guide, very knowledgable and funny, the tour was awesome!
It was hotter in Pompeii than we thought, our tip would be to take an umbrella as there is little to no shade.

Excellent tour. Would have liked a bit of free time in Pompeii - there wasn't any. Guide was very funny and knowledgable. Probably the best tour guide I have ever had in Italy. Don't stray from the group as they don't do frequent headcounts and they don't wait around for stragglers - which I liked because they didn't waste any of our time. But the other group did lose an entire family who asked for a refund and were told tough luck because it was their responsibility to stay with the group. You have enough time to climb Mt Vesuvius to the crater and walk around for a few minutes on the top, but the climb is steep and elderly or not-fit participants may find it to be difficult in the time given.

Maria was amazing! Her attention to detail was amazing and I learned so much more than the first visit to Pompeii. The hike to Vesuvius is a must! However, you are climbing straight up for a mile on ash. So, you take a step forward slide back a step. The end result is breathtaking!
