We had a wonderful day on this tour. The guide who travelled with us and the local Pompeii guide were both passionate and interesting. Don't visit Pompeii without a knowledgeable guide, as you will miss so much detail. Lunch was delicious - a pizza in Naples - and then the hike up Mt Vesuvius was not to be missed. The hike is relatively steep, but there is no need to go all the way if health issues prevent this. My husband and I are both in our 60s and reached the top ridge in the time allocated. Highly recommend this tour

Pompeii was definitely interesting and I was amazed at seeing the grooves in the cobblestones from the chariot wheels. Be aware that hiking the route up Mt Vesuvius is strenuous, but worth the climb. We had the same guide from our previous tour of the Catacombs, Erneto. He has so much knowledge!

Awesome can not begin to describe our tour with the best guides ever! we had two groups split onto one bus. with our guides giving us detailed information during the 3 hour bus ride to Pompeii and Mt. Vesuvius, so the ride didnt seem very long at all. Pompeii was everything I had hoped it would be, with just the right amount of time spent when you factor in the crowds and the heat.The pizza was very welcome and very GOOD!! which you burned off by climbing a active volcano!which I must say was a challenge to climb and not for everyone. It has a very steep grade and soil thats like an open bag of dry concrete.But once you reach the top you know you have accomplished something not very many people in the world have had a chance to do.
I have to give our driver Antonio a giant shout out, he made the drive up and down Mt. Vesuvius in a giant tour bus seem easy... What a ROCK STAR!!! Thank you Roberto, Lukka and Antonio for a WONDERFUL tour!

Great tour - really got to see and learn a lot both from the tour and local guides. Bus ride was about 3 hours but was never bored with great stories/information from the two guides. Helped us with were not to shop tourist traps but fell short of guiding us to particular shops a good thing!.

Try not to go around May to the mountain - there are a lot of little Nats that can get VERY annoying.

This tour is with a tour company out of Rome. It's great and the tour guides are fun and give you a vast amount of historical information. You get to see Pompeii and have a few minutes leisure time to take pictures. Great guide in Pompeii with a lot of information. The pizza in Naples was really tasty although it did take a little long to serve. The highlight of our trip was climbing Mt. Vesuvius, it's definitely not for the faint of heart but worth it. I do wish they would have given us a little more time to shop for souvenirs. Overall a great trip.

Let me start with the fact that our guide, Antonella, was AMAZING. Very funny, attentive, helpful, and informative. She did a great job getting a lot of information in without making us feel overwhelmed at the end of the trip. We loved her and were grateful she was our guide. It's a very long day, but so worth it. It's important to note that the climb to the top of Vesuvius is not to be taken lightly. It's a long set of switchbacks up loose pumice gravel. If you use a trekking stick, bring it. And leave the flip flops at home. It's A LOT to take in on one tour and somehow they do it well. BRING WATER and snacks and if you can find a way to get a coffee in you before 7am, DO IT. Then just enjoy the ride!

Excellent tour guides, learnt so much, both on the bus travelling to and from Pompeii and with the guide who took us around Pompeii. Low cloud on the volcano prevented us from seeing into the crater but we still climbed right to the end of the track. Pompeii was amazing! well worth the visit. Excellent pizza lunch too.

This was a fantastic tour. Everything happened on time. The bus was comfortable and the lunch was great. Both tour guides on the bus with us were wonderful. The driver was very good and the local guide at the site was very knowledgeable and helpful. I really appreciated the comfort stops.

The tour was great! Robert and Lukka did a great job. I would highly recommend City Wonders Tours especially if you can request Robert and Lukka they were both informative and very entertaining. As far as Pompeii, it was nice, not as preserved and nice as Ostia Antica but very nice.

Can't say enough wonderful things about this trip! The guides were AMAZING!!! The tour was breathtaking! The experience was a once in a lifetime for me and my family. We all agreed, this part of our trip was the absolute highlight! In fact, the guides were so good, we signed up for a different tour with them which was equally awe-inspiring! We will definitely seek this tour company City Wonders out on future trips.A

Enrico was our tour guide in Pompei and he was spectacular!
He was engaging, informative, and made the tour very interesting. We enjoyed his portion of the trip.
Melanie was a bus tour guide. She was willing to give lots of help in order to recommend restaurants, gelato shops, tourist places to visit and non-tourist places to visit. She also shared some interesting pointers about the historical background to each area of Italy we were travelling through wine, limoncello, foods, gelato, etc.
The experience was very enjoyable.

The tour was excellent! Our guides were incredible, very friendly and knowledgeable as well as organized. It was a great first experience and as we booked other tours throughout our trip we learned that the guides can make or break the tour...so I couldn't have asked for better!
