The guide did a great job mixing humour and information making this trip very interesting and memorable. Plus, hotel pick-up and return leaves more time to enjoy your trip. Highly recommended..

My son and I took the high speed train from Rome to pick up this tour outside the Naples Train Station. The tour guide was there on time and found a few of us that were waiting. The trip was great, ran smoothly, and allowed just enough time at both places plus a nice hour for lunch. It was exactly what I was looking for when I decided to use a tour rather than try to get myself to both places on my own and the information provided by our guide, Andreas, was very informative.

Our guide was hilarious! I will never forget the Pompeii brothel :) Since I studied geology in school I most looked forward to seeing Vesuvius and thou I did see the other reviews saying they dont give enought time for really appreciating the hike, it was still my favorite part of the day... go and youll see why

Excellant tour! There were only 12 people in our group which was great. We are not "tour" people-we would prefer to sightsee on our own but this was worth doing the tour. First, you don't want to drive yourself in Italy--the drivers are INSANE!!! Second, our tour guide Andrea and drive, Luigi were worth the money! They provided interesting information in a fun way and didn't take themselves too seriously. A visit to Pompeii is a must if you go to Italy. Pizza lunch was good and provided a great way to meet others in the group. Climbing to the summit of Vesuvius was great exercise and an experience not to be missed if you are reasonably fit. The ride up and down Vesuvius by van was better then any scary rollercoaster ride!! All in all, worth the money!

An amazing experience.The guide picked us up on time.We were taken to Pompei first where our guide showed us all the sights and was very knowledgeable.We also had a lovely pizza lunch with drinks and were then taken to Mount Vesuvius.It was really fantastic to look into the crater.This trip is a must do for all visitors to Naples.

Pompeii was so interesting. In the US we sometimes fool ourselves that a few hundred years of history is 'ancient', but this was really a historic place. Our guide, Andreas, was very knowledgeable and gave us beau coup information and a few laughs as well. Vesuvio was magnificent. Wished I'd dressed a little warmer for the hike to the top, but I still enjoyed it and can say I CLIMBED VESUVIO!! It was spectacular. The scenery all the way up the mountain is unbelievable. Sweeping views of the entire city of Naples, and the sea. Loved it.

This day trip was wonderful. Although I was given a meeting point, the day before the tour Viator tried to call and arrange a pick up at my hotel (I was out seeing Naples). I was met by a friendly guide and escorted onto a clean passenger van. People who brought luggage were accomadated without a problem. The driver drove us safely to Pompeii's ruins, where our guide, who is an archeologist, toured the ruins with us. I thought the "pizza lunch" was going to be cold and eaten on the bus, but we went to a local pizzeria where we were given a choice of pizza which was then prepare and brought to the tables by a waitress. The drive to the top of Mt Vesuvius was done safely. We got a new guide who was born and raised on the mountain, although she didn't climb to the top with us, no problem, you have the rest of the group encouraging you to go to the top. To actually ascend the Mt is a significant undertaking that I didn't complete but all the young people in my group did. This trip was wonderful, and I am hard to please.
