Great tour. The guide at Pompeii was patient and knowledgeable.
GREAT TRIP!! Our tour guide Andre did a fantastic job, very informative. Loved this trip- definitely worth it!
The tour guide was humorous and highly informative in his tour of Pompeii and the hike of Vesuvius. The food was great and the group a ton of fun!!
A1 tour - Pompeii was spectacular
Vesuvius was also very nice - please take a good pair of walking shoes as you need to walk 1 mile on the ash based track all the way up
We had this tour on the 10th of August with a tour guide called Adrea. He was well informed about the history of Pompeii and ancient Rome in general, and was humorous as well.
The shuttle, an air conditioned Mercedes executive van, picked us from the designated location and drove us to Pompeii which wasn't that far. Then we met up with Andrea and started the tour around the ancient city of Pompeii with Andrea giving us information throughout. After a good hour and half we stopped for lunch at a local restaurant. The lunch was pizza and a drink. The pizza was pretty big and tasted good.
After lunch, we proceeded with the same shuttle to Mt. Vesuvius. The road is narrow mountainous one, which you might find intimidating if you are not used to such roads, as for us we were used to them since we come from Lebanon. The shuttle reaches a point on Mt. Vesuvius where it stops and the hike begins. The hike is kind of challenging depending on ones fitness levels, but it is marvelous opportunity to see the bay of Naples from the top and enjoy the scenery.
After we got down, the shuttle took us to the main train station in Napoli signaling the end of the tour.
All in all, our experience with these guys was excellent. The tour was well organized and the guides were well informed. I recommend this tour to others.
I was a little nervous about this trip, as some of the reviews were not so good. The tour company picked us up right on time and we headed to Pompei. The group was pretty large, so that was the biggest problem for us. Lunch was good (pizza) and then we headed for Mt Vesuvius. The road there is long and winding, which was kind of a neat ride. Once there, the time we had to hike to the top and get back down was maybe a little short - we had to keep a pretty good pace going up the dusty gravel path and we left almost as soon as we got down. Make sure you wear sturdy closed-toe shoes and they will get dirty! (I know the thing says "comfortable walking shoes," but this probably needed more than that. Overall, a good trip.
The tour met my expectations, we were able to see all we wanted and walk up the Vesuvius as plant. punctual to pick up and drop off us in meeting point, i would recommend this tour to friends in the future.
Brilliant tour, very informative guide, lovely pizza! Highly recommended!
We thoroughly enjoyed this day. The organisation was perfect. The guide who took us through Pompeii was informative and very entertaining. We also really enjoyed climbing up Mt Vesuvius. All in all - an excellent experience.
The tour guides were friendly and knowledgable and the food was fantastic. I would definitely recommend this trip to anyone. History, amazing scenery, and culture all in one. Great day.
Found this daytrip well co-ordinated. It was very handy for the limited time we had in the area. The guide was very informative and witty. Would definitely not have seen as much of pompeii doing it solo. The air-conditioned bus collection and drop off was great. Light Lunch was in a nice restaurant.
Fantastic day. Thoroughly enjoyed our guides interpretation of Roman Life and very informative. Also appreciated being picked up and returned to our Hotel. Would highly recommend the tour.
The tour guide was fantastic, and we learned so much! He was so enthusiastic and made the tour very interesting!
Great guide- funny, personable and very knowledgable. Nice lunch and organized tour. Seemed reasonable for all abilities.
