What You Can Expect
As you pass magnificent Mt Vesuvius, stop for a great photo opportunity and hear from your guide about the tragic event in 79 AD, when the entire town of Pompeii was buried under ash and pumice from a violent explosion from this active volcano.
Arrive in Pompeii and explore fascinating attractions with your guide on a sightseeing tour. First, see the Forum, formerly the civic center of Pompeii that supported buildings for business, religion and the local government. Visit the Lupanar, the official brothel of Pompeii in ancient days, and see the Thermal Baths to learn how these ancient public baths were once a place for people to relax and socialize.
Then, stop at a local pizzeria (included) for a traditional Italian lunch before continuing to Sorrento. When you arrive, follow your guide on a walking tour of this charming little town. Stroll along the gorgeous beaches of Vico Equense and Seiano and admire the typical Mediterranean vegetation brimming with lemon and orange trees. Your guide will point out the most renowned places as you walk through narrow streets lined with various vendors and quaint workshops.
Stop for a great photo opportunity at a panoramic viewpoint in Meta di Sorrento and marvel at the amazing views of the Bay of Naples and the Mediterranean Sea. Finally, visit Villa Comunale, the largest public park in Sorrento that sits on a cliff overlooking the bay. From here, you can see as far as Punta Campanella and the Island of Capri. Take a moment to soak in the breathtaking scenery before returning to the Naples port.

Great trip. I would do it early I. He day because pompano got very hot by noon.
Maria and Andre were FANTASTIC tour guides! They were easy to understand, had in depth knowledge of the area AND the pizza lunch was an oversized delicious individual pizza plus your choice of wine or soda!
Highly recommend this tour.
Wonderful guide, learned so much.
Our guide Maria was the BEST! I had a Wonderful time in Italy and enjoyed each excursion that we did! Very informational and again, a lot of walking. I didn't really care for the Pizza in Naples the sauce was not good to me but that's a matter of opinion I know other's who loved it. The time we had to eat was a bit rushed, but other tours were coming to eat as we were leaving. I would not do this tour again, but it's definitely a must do for a first time!!!!!
Our tour guide Maria was very entertaining and knowledgeable. Having a tour guide in Pompeii is recommended. We had lunch in Pompeii , the worker in the restaurant were very nice and welcoming. Then we headed to Sorrento , we were able to take pictures at Amalfi coast. Sorrento is such a beautiful place. We went for a lemonchelo tasting which is popular in Sorrento. The tour overall was really good, highly recommended including our tour guide Maria.
Sorrento is a MUST go! My tour guide is very knowledgeable and professional.
This was the best tour of our trip. Our tour guide was very informative,friendly and easy to talk to.
Our tour was wonderful! Our tour guide Maria Louisa was very informative and sweet. We began our journey with a guided tour for 2 hours in Pompeii. Pompeii is gorgeous and not to be missed in Naples. Then we had a delicious pizza lunch which was unexpected since tours normally take you to touristy spots. Afterwards we traveled along the gorgeous coast line to Sorrento. Due to time constraints we did not have a lot of time in the city of Sorrento but just enough to get a feel for it. Maria took us for free Lemoncello tastings which is a must visiting Italy. Overall I would definitely recommend this tour.
Our tour guide Andre was so funny and interesting. He showed us the city of Pompey and learn many interesting things. Went to Sorrento and tested the Limonchelo and walk around the city and learn about Italy. I wish I could do it again.
We had 2 guides for our visit. One for Pompeii and one that met us at the dock and toured Sorrento. Both were great, however Christian A., who showed us Pompeii was above and beyond great. His personality was captivating and truely made the tour an interesting experience. We had a GREAT time. Would do this again in a heartbeat.
