We had a fantastic time ! Really pleased that we saw Pompeii the tour guide really made it and was very knowledgeable also great going up Vesuvius.
Everything about this tour was excellent. I was picked up and dropped off from very close to where I was staying, even though it was not an official hotel. The tour guide in Pompeii Sabrina was fantastic, very knowledgeable, very enthusiastic and interesting, and spoke delightful English. The pizza lunch was simple but very good. The drive and then walk up Vesuvius was extraordinary...not an easy walk, though, but well worth all the effort. Overall, this was an excellent experience and I would highly recommend it. Pompeii and Vesuvius can be visited on one's own, but it is so much easier and so much more informative with the tour guides that we had.
We were picked up exactly on time. The trip was well organised according to who had booked a particular trip. The guide who took us around Pompeii was very informative and made sure we saw all of the buildings of interest. Could have done with a bit more time at the top of Vesuvius, but the whole trip was amazing.
The day was very well co-ordinated, no wasted time, lunch was good fun and more than I expected for the price - the biggest pizza in the world! Tour guides were informative and entertaining. They managed to explain detail in all languages and all ages, they were a hoot!
My tour guide for Pompeii was amazing. She was funny, witty, and really knew her stuff. I wouldn't have left Pompeii knowing nearly as much as I did leaving with my tour guide. I HIGHLY recommend this tour. Its worth the money.
The tour was great. we saw everything we wanted to see in Pompeii, had a wonderful guide and a splendid experience of Mount Vesuvius.
We had the best tour guide for Pompeii! I think her name was Elisia. Best tour of our whole trip to Italy. She was so knowledgeable and gave great info on idioms we use today. She also had one person who only spoke Spanish and did a great job explaining to the whole group in English and then in Spanish as we walked to the one person in our group. She was funny, entertaining, professional, quick to adapt. Just the best. Mt. Vesuvius wasn't really a tour. We just got dropped off and hiked up, so they might want to mention that. But it was beautiful up there.
This worked out great, totally worth it. I arrived at 9:45 am at the Naples train station and quickly found the meeting spot for the tour outside Napoli Station for the 10:30 tour. Our driver and guide whisked us away to Pompeii where we had a great tour guide and saw a good chunk of the ruins.
Afterwards we had pizza, pasta and drinks, all included at a nearby establishment.
Then it was a 40 minute drive up the mountain where we were given ample time to hike up to the top and peer into the crater, which is still smoking! And the views from the top are amazing.
Advice: the walk to the top is a bit of a hike, bring a bottle of water and enjoy it. 30 minutes up, 20 minutes down....
A tour very well organized and a fantastic experience for me. I recommend it.
Definitely an experience. Didn't think I would make it to the top but I did. It was very cold at the top. Anyang over 50 degrees is cold for me as I am from Florida. A once in a lifetime experience.
The tour guide for Pompeii was great, she was friendly and passed on very interesting facts. We would definitely recommend to go on a guided tour as it gives an insight of how a normal day was and how it was to live in Pompeii. Our trip to Mt Vesuvius was very good despite all the rain we got caught in. It was an eerie feeling going up seeing the remains of the last eruption and quite a few vacated houses the closer you get up. It was a great trip!
Even though it was a rainy day the trek up Mt. Vesuvius was a sense of personal triumph to accomplish. Loved it.
A great tour, the guide for Pompeii was very informative and delivered the infomation in a good humoured way. We had awesome views from the top of Vesuvius.
Excellent tour! Lunch was great as well. A full size pizza and beverage of your choice.
Highlight was climbing Vesuvius in the afternoon. Be prepared for the tight, winding roads up the side of the mountain in a large tour bus. Best to look up the mountain as opposed to down it, unless you really like heights.
The climb itself was not very difficult we're in our 30s but plenty of elderly couples on the path - many of whom used walking sticks. Do wear comfortable shoes. We did not need a jacket in September.
Great trip!! Lovely commentary, amazing sites at Pompeii! Only wish we had more time to wander about on our own. The walk up to the top of Vesuvius was steep and exhausting but totally worth it.
pompeii was incredible with the town in amazing shape for a two thousand year old town, also mount Vesuvius was spectatular and climbing to the top was a trek but well worth it.
