Our Pompeiii guide was fantastic. He was extremely knowledgable. It is obviously impossible to see all of the site in half a day but he chose some really interesting parts for us to see. The lunch that we were given in between visits was really nice. They are clearly mass producing to a budget but we really liked it. Pasta followed by the most gorgeous piece of roast beef with salad... lovely! Herculaneum was great. We were left to our own devices there. I'm not sure if this was because we were the only ones doing this bit of the trip, but we actually preferred that. We walked around at a leisurely pace and covered the whole site. I would highly recommend both of these trips.
Great tour of ancient ruins by informative and charming Lucia. She gave great insight to the life of the people of Pompeii and Ercolano. We would go again with her to explore more of these fascinating acheological treasures!

Great tour and enjoyed learning and seeing the history of Pompeii and Herculaneum
Very well organised. Picked up from our hotel on time, Really impressive tour of both sites and very friendly tour guides. Thanks for a great day.
Pompeii was unbelievable. Herculaneum not so much. Could have spent at least 1/2 hour more. Felt rushed.
The tour guide around Pompeii was very knowledgeable and we were able to see quite a lot of the site. Herculaneum is a must to see if you want to see more preserved buildings. It doesn't take as long as Pompeii to go around the whole site. Great that the tour combined both in one day.
Fantastic to have been able to them both and we were taken aback with the sheer size of Pompeii, therefore having a tour guide is an absolute must. We expected to see more artefacts and the plaster bodies/animals but were told that they are in a museum in Naples, we went there and there were plenty of artefacts but no plaster bodies/animals only to be told that they are in a little known museum back in Pompeii. Lunch was good
We really enjoyed this trip and it was very interesting. The only comment would be that we found it hard to hear and understand our tour guide, but she was really lovely. Would recommend this tour, but maybe more time at Pompeii to see a little more of the ruins and have a look at the shops would have been good. The lunch was better than expected due to previous feedback.
Pick up from hotel was on time. Visits to both places were fantastic, both giving an insight into how people lived then. My guide was knowledgeable and thismade the tour very good.
After 3 different cars/buses the tour started. The initial guide was just okay without proferring much information. The visit to the jewellery showroom was a WASTE of time and really should NOT be included..in fact I declined to go and had another expresso instead. Lunch included was inedible..in fact stomach issues followed. Pompeii was fantastic but Herculaneum was just out of this world. The guide at Pompeii was informative and we all got drenched in a 20m downpour. A convenient way to see both.
