My teenage children and I misunderstood the instructions for the pick up of this tour and spent a frantic 50 minutes racing up the wrong side of the street asking endless people where we might find the bus. Finally a wonderful Napoli employee at the railway information desk made some phone calls, left her post and escorted us to the guide searching for us in the place we'd previously been searching for her. Thanks so much for waiting for us but please provide better instructions next time. The Pompeii tour was amazing. Andre, our guide, was a wealth of information presented as facts, stories and anecdotes. My teenage children, past and present students of Latin and Ancient History, were fascinated by Pompeii's boast of a different way of life, at once more difficult for some and more opulent for others than their's. Climbing Mt Vesuvius and peering into the crater, so apparently benign yet capable of venting such horror was very moving. The walk is a steady climb on a pebbly pumice surface, but the cool breeze made it seem less strenuous. To scan the flat land areas between the volcano and the sea and to understand that they all were spewed from this very volcano is awesome. This tour provided a fabulous day out for us. I have no reservations in recommending it for all.

Amazing day out, I loved Pompeii, our guide was fab, very knowledgable and lifted the experience with great stories of how life would have been at the time. The walk up Vesuvius was very impressive, the view from the top was just something else! and luckily not as much of a struggle as I was expecting it to be!

Extremely friendly tour guides. When we booked our tour there was a strike in Naples and the roads were jammed. The tour guides went to extra lengths to ensure that we got to go on our trip. The food was lovely and the tour was informative. Mount Vesuvius was fantastic! Brilliant trip and a highlight of our holiday.

The trip was what I expected. Easy to find our ride/guide when we arrived in Naples. The trip was well explained and gave us detailed information about Pompeii. Only the weather was too hot for comfort, but that was not controlable. Great trip and we all enjoyed it!

This trip was a great way to see two of the most impressive sites in the Naples area in a single day. I was also on my own so found the ease of booking and hotel pick up a real help.

Really enjoyed the trip, Vesuvius and Pompeii are a must. Our guide was very informative and helpful, he also had a good sense of humour, so a good time was had by all. The lunch that was laid on was very nice. Even though the trip was a full day, our guide kept our interest going. I felt that i learnt alot but also had a great time in the process. He made the experience very interesting I would highly recomend it.

What a wonderful trip! Our tour guide showed great knowledge of Pompeii while exhibiting charm and humor. The pizza at lunch was okay, but the independent trip up Mt. Vesuvius made up for it. The views from the volcano were wonderful. Be sure to take sturdy shoes for the climb as the path is sandy. Enjoy a great time!

Overall Excellent - the pick-up was on time, the tour guides were enthusiastic and knowledgeable. I liked the headset system as it allowed a little more freedom to look around whilst staying in contact.Transport to and from was very good, the restaurant meal was also very good. It was a bonus that there all guests were from local hotels so no pressure experienced by other reviewers of the cruise ship dependency to get back urgently. I would however have liked a little more time on Vesuvius. Overall excellent value for money and would use again

Lovely day. The guides were superb. Could have done with more time at top of Vesuvius but only a small critisism.

Wonderful tour! The tour guide was excellent and very informational. Spoke good english and funny. The walk up to Mt Vesuvius was a hike but once you got up there, the views took your breath away. We also had lunch at this restaurant and the pizza was delicious. Would highly recommend this tour to those that loved adventure.
