Our guides Julio and Antonella were very informative and kept us amused throughout. The journey was long 3 hours but felt shorter owing to their anecdotes and historical/geographical facts. Thankfully the bad weather during the coaches' ascent up the volcano disappeared by the time we reached the summit and the view of both Vesuvius and Naples was breathtaking. The climb to the crater is fairly steep but there are great views from the coach park should you be feeling less energetic. Pompeii was beautiful and the level of preservation incredible. You could spend hours there and not see everything. Our stops for breakfast and lunch were in similarly scenic locations and the food was good. I really have no complaints.
This tour was wonderful the guides Andrea and Julio made it so exciting enjoyed Wellworth had a fabulous time in Pompeii would recommend highly
OMG... climbing Mt. Vesuvius was fantastic!! What a way to see Naples from above... and the Pompeii visit was fascinating... Our bus guides were fun and very informative. They always made us feel welcome and kept us comfortable illuminated during our trip. It was long but well worth it. Thank you!!
This 5 star rating is more for the location and sites than the tour itself. Although the City Wonders operating company guides simply passed us off to another tour guide at Pompeii, they managed to be sincere, helpful and knowledgeable. I definitely recommend this to any history buffs. The views from the top of Mount Vesuvius were incredible!
A fantastic tour which was extremely well organised. The guides were very informative both during the transfers and also at the Pompeii site. We really enjoyed the whole day which went seemed to go very quickly even through it was a long day.
Absolute highlight of our trip to Italy! Not to be missed. Kids were ecstatic. The whole day well spent. Don't be too excited about pizza at Naples though:
We had a clear view from Mount Vesuvius to Naples and it's amazing. Pompeii is huge, you can be lost there and unbelievably well preserved. As I said... NOT TO BE MISSED
What a wonderful day! The tour guide and bus driver were excellent. The tour of Pompeii was fascinating and Mount Vesuvius was amazing. The view from the top of Mount Vesuvius was incredible. This was my husband's favorite tour that we took. we will definitely recommend this to our friends.
What a great experience! Super informative tour guides! The climb up Mt Vesuvius was amazing, and a must if you do this tour. Pompeii was exceptional. Loved every minute!
Great day trip!!! It's a long day but there is decent time to rest on the comfortable bus ride back to Rome. Andy was one of our tour guides and having him there made all the difference! He's entertaining, very personable, and shares a lot of valuable information along the way. This tour is well organized and my friends and I really enjoyed the hike and Pompeii!
Antonella was so enthusiastic that we had a fantastic day, even with 6 hours in a bus. Vesuvio was an fantastic view and a good story, and Pompeii is crazy
The trip was very well-planned and the guides were excellent. We thoroughly enjoyed the tour of Pompeii and Vesuvius.
Although it was a long day, we found this trip to be one of our favorites in the 2 weeks in Italy! Our coach bus was comfortable, the guides extremely knowledgable, but most importantly they were kind and extremely helpful. Pompeii is more than I expected and the hike to the crater of Mt. Vesuvius was a bucket-list kind of activity. Be ready to do quite a bit of walking, but there was plenty of time to rest on the return trip to Rome.
I had great time. Meeting point was easy to find and people were there promtply at 7:15. We left very close to our scheduled depart time.
Our guide was Stephanie and she was great. Offered plenty of info and suggestions. Very accomodating.
Tour was planned very well and worth the money.
Loved the walk through the ruins at Pompeii. The guide was great. The walk up Mt Vesuvius was super hard but totally worth it! The pizza lunch was very yummy. Our guides were wonderful and full of information.
Do not miss this trip!! It was the highlight of our Italy trip. The day was so fun, and our tour guides Andy and Sarah were amazing. They made a 2 hour bus trip very entertaining! The lunch was some of the best pizza we had while in Italy. It is a long day, but completely worth it. I'd do it again in a heartbeat.
Super! The itinerary, tour guides -- Anna and Julia, and the driver -- Norman are great.
I can't fault this tour, it was an amazing experience! Be prepared for the walk up the volcano, was a bit more strenuous than I expected but luckily you have free time to do it at your own pace.
We had an amazing time! Our guides were incredible. Knowledgeable, courteous, funny. The bus drive up Vesuvius was rough. If you get carsick at all, be careful. The hike up the rest is very steep. A 30 incline most of the way so bring good tennis shoes, and depending on the season, a jacket. The views are spectacular. Julio and Martonella were great. Their English is amazing, which is a huge help when I've only nailed down about 5 words in Italian. Alfredo was our guide in Pompeii. He had SO much information for us. He's fluent in at least 4 languages! My friend and I enjoyed all the sarcastic and funny comments he made during the tour. We loved this trip. It's a long, full day. But I've been waiting years to see Pompeii, and it was beyond worth it. If you have a chance, take a recovery day after this trip. We certainly are.
Great day out well worth the money. Lunch was excellent one of the best pizzas I've had. The tour guides were very informative and very interesting.
We had a fantastic time on the Pompeii and Mt Vesuvius tour. The guides were lovely, hilarious and informative. The local guide we had at Pompeii also was just great.
The whole day was very enjoyable and I would highly recommend this to anyone going to Rome!
What a day! We saved this tour for our last full day and it was truly a great way to have ended our holiday!
We had Giulio and Roberto as our guides on the 21/09/15, although it was a long day they certainly kept us entertained, they work really well together, bouncing off one another which is rather comical too.
Both are very knowledgeable and passionate.
The morning we spent in Pompeii, which was more than what I expected, it was beautiful yet moving to see the ruins and delve deeper into the history of what had once been a great trading port and city.
After lunch we took to Mount Vesuvius, the climb and the views of the volcano and the surrounding below were breathtaking, it was well worth it the 30 minute hike to the top.
Great day trip to Pompeii and mt Vesuvius with a very nice lunch included. Guides were super informative and helpful. Really enjoyable day
