Excellent, lots of history made interesting by the guide. Well worth the climb to the top of Vesuvius, but would have been nice to have a little more time to enjoy the spectacle.
We were collected at Naples train station exactly on time and taken to Pompeii by mini bus. Our guide, Andreas, was excellent and the group size was just right. We had children with us aged 8 and 10 (the only children in the group) and it was pitched well for both them and adults. After a quick pizza lunch we went to Vesuvius and then back to Naples train station - all exactly on time. Really excellent day out!
We were picked up at the hotel, the guide was very good. All was organized very well. There was no time to get bored. Pizza and pasta was very tasty. Lots of jokes and humor. It was very enjoyable tour.
An amazing trip and something ticked off my bucket list..... meeting point was confusing but we stood with others that looked confused like us so all good! we had Andrea as a guide and he was AWESOME - ask for him!!! Naples was the most amazing place ever and then the day was topped off with Vesuvius! Great day thanks xx
We had an excellent guide in Andrea both informative and entertaining
We were promptly picked up from a hotel nearby to us in a comfortable coach and driven to Pompeii where we were introduced to Andrea - what a fantastic tour of Pompeii. He made the tour interesting. It was informative, and more importantly allowed us a good opportunity to learn about the history there.
A smooth transition from the tour to lunch where we were given a choice of pizza or pasta with a drink. A whole pizza - and so quick!
From there we jumped back on the bus and were taken to Mt. Vesuvius. As we winded our way up the narrow road there my fiancé and I both agreed how easy this tour was in terms of getting us to these two highly popular tourist destinations on time and easily!
Andrea left us at the bottom to walk up and down on our timetable as long as we were back on the bus by a certain time. Which was a reasonable timeframe considering the age of some passengers.
Unfortunately a couple returned late to the bus, but Andrea was very patient the whole time.
Returning to Naples, we had originally opted for the station drop off but Andrea got us back to our b and b which was fantastic!!
Would highly recommend. Spend the money for the ease of getting to both these places. Considering it's all paid for prior to the day it was just so easy!
A fantastic day. We were picked up at our hotel exactly on time. Our enthusiastic guide Antonio provided us with many details about Pompeii, and answered all questions knowledgeably. Lunch was a tasty choice of pizza or cannelloni. We continued by bus to Mt.Vesuvius. The 40 minute somewhat steep climb was worth the view, and it was quite exciting to be at the top of a slightly steaming volcano. A good time was had by all!
Excellent guides, a very enjoyable and informative day.
So glad we did this. This the walk is a lot but worth every step.
Excellent tour. Our guide was very entertaining and really brought Pompeii to life with his descriptions of the daily lives of the people at the time. Great trip to the crater of Vesuvius.
Amazing tour and our tour guide Andre was wonderful. Really knew his subject and shared it with the group....very interactive.....one of the best tours so far!
Loved Pompeii! Our guide was very funny and knowledgeable. Mt. Vesuvius was also nice but I was unable to climb to the top with a not so strong knee. Would have like to have known that the path to the top was small loose gravel and a very steep incline. Otherwise, we loved this tour!
The guide we had for visiting Pompeii was terrific. He gave wonderful insights as to how life would have been then and daily routines, while totally explaining the ruins. We walked through most of the site and he thoughtfully pointed out highlights and was very patient until everyone could hear and see. The hike up Mt. Vesuvius was well worth the effort. There was steam coming out of one side of the caldera and the views from the top were incredible. It would have been nice to have more time to spend at the top. It was a very worthwhile day and a tour that we would not hesitate to recommend.
The guide at Pompeii was excellent and funny. Really super. The bus guide was also very good. One of the best tours I have ever had.
