Great trip and guide, probably the best way to explore these ancient sites. The lunch was vey good too! Watch out for centipedes on the walls!

Our Pompei and Herculaneum day trip was great from the get go. The driver, Mario, was very entertaining. While we were on the way to pick up the other people in the group, he gave us a brief history of Naples and pointed out interesting sites and buildings. He even played Italian music which elevated the ambience of the tour. Our tour guide was very nice and knowledgeable. Great day trip!

Pompeii is MUCH bigger than I had expected, very interesting to learn their lives. The tour guide was knowledgable and added humour along the way which is always a winner. Herculaneum is smaller but still a must do

The tour was fascinating and the guide was great! It did feel a little rushed at Pompeii, but the place is huge and there is loads to see. Plenty of time to look around Herculaneum afterwards.

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!

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

Both wonderful sites and seeing them sequentially gave a fuller picture. Pompeii very crowded and limitations placed on where could go. Felt group of 30 with 1 guide made progress slower than necessary if they had split the group. Herculannum gave greater access to buildings because the site has already been compromised. Fewer people and greater sense of family life of the time. Wonderful mosaics driver 30 minutes late for pickup which frustrating as would have been happy to spend longer at the site

Good guide, very knowledgable cramped coach to start but then nice mini bus. Pretty horrible lunch but that's what was expected avoid restaurant Vesuvio at all costs. Overall though a good day

Both tours were well organized and very interesting. Being able to compare the impact of the eruption of Vesuvius on the 2 towns was worthwhile. Only minor issue was whilst the tour guide had a very good knowledge of English her Italian accent sometimes made her descriptions difficult to understand.

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.

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.

Great day out. The only thing was that each person had to pay for entry separately it would be good if the tour company could arrange this in advance and include in the price to avoid queuing. Herculaneum was brilliant, I highly recommend this too!

The tour guides (on the bus and on site) were both very good; I enjoyed visiting Herculaneum more, simply because it was not so crowded and we could walk around more leisurely. Pompeii was very crowded and we had to stay with the tour group. The food for lunch was not so great. Surely there must be better restaurants around.

picked up on time {7 45} by very smart driver from our hotel who took us to where we got the coach. That came but our only complaint is that we were on the coach til nearly 10 am collecting other people who weren't there or ready.Nearly 2 hrs before we began the trip! That said the rest of the tour was great. The guides Jasmine and Maximus [at Pompeii] were quite honestly the best. The heat was so intense but it didn't phase them. The lunch was ok. When asked "seafood pasta or roast beef" the 4 on our table said roast beef and that is what we got -- a slice of [very nice ] roast beef and nothing more ! The starter was great as was the ice cream and the waiters very funny and fast . As my husband and I were the only ones going to Herculaneum in the afternoon we actually had a car and driver to ourselves. He again was great, waited 2 hrs then took us back to hotel .All the guides were so knowledgable and passionate about their subject it made everything so interesting.We had seen several tv prorammes about Pompeii and it all came alive on that day.The tour was worth every penny.
