Amazing day trip. Bus took us as high up Mt Vesuvius as it was allowed. It was a 40 minute walk up a 14 degree slope with a number of stops to catch my breath. Able to look down into the crater and still see steam or smoke coming out. Then a 20 minute walk down to where the bus was waiting. A little leery knowing this is still considered an active volcano, although it last erupted in 1944.
The ruins of Pompeii are much bigger then expected. Imagine a city of 20,000 people buried! The stone streets have deep ruts worn in them from many years of wagon wheels. It all came into perspective when we stood in the main city square and saw Mt Vesuvius 7 miles away. Now I can imagine what happened!
My husband and I went on this tour back in April this year. It was one of our favourite tours we did in Europe. From the beginning when we met our guide Roberto was fabulous. There were 2 tour guides on the bus with us and they interacted with the all the people and provided a lot of knowledge about all the places we were passing. Pompeii was amazing, the history behind it is unbelievable and the fact that there are still so many remains after so long is crazy. After this we walked up the mount Vesuvius, luckily the weather was only just warm as it is a bit of a hike to get up to the top. but getting to the top is well worth it. The scenery overlooking Naples is breathtaking. This tour is definitely a must do when in Rome!
All I can say that this tour was worth every penny. Robert(o), our guide, was excellent not only with his knowledge but also looking after our every need.
Our tour guide, Mara, was highly knowledgeable and very friendly. She talked just the right amount on the bus trip. The meeting place in Rome was easy to find; no confusion like we had on a previous tour. The group was split into two so there were only 20 of us, which was great. We appreciated the half-way stop on the way to and from Naples. Vesuvius was awesome!! We had adequate time to walk up at our own pace. Lunch was great! And Pompeii was everything we had expected and more. Our local guide, Enrico, really brought past events to life for us. We HIGHLY recommend this tour!
Long bus ride to get there and back but the girls made it very enjoyable and informative, knew when to give us down time for a snooze. Their knowledge and tips on how to pick the best restaurant and cuisine were spot on, tried their tips, worked well!! The tour through Pompeii was exceptional made perfect by our guide "Enrico", his sharp, brilliant wit and knowledge of Pompeii were exceptional. Trip us Mt Vesuvius was challenging, sorry we didn't make it to the top but lots did. Had an excellent day, well worth it.
A fabulous time spent. Maximo n Elena had been such great guides throughout the tour. Thank you Maximo for giving detail information on churches in Rome too. Will definitely back for another visit!
Brilliant day out. Climbing Mt Vesuvius was awesome. Spectacular views.
We had a great time on this trip. Although a very long day it was well worth it. We were given ample time for exploring at each stop and found our guide Antonella extremely helpful and informative. Our guide in Pompeii shared his extensive knowledge of the area as he guided us through the ruins of the city. At no time did we feel rushed and would definately recommend to others.
The tour was great. It was truly a highlight of our 2 week Italy trip with our two boys (6 and 9)
Well worth doing. Our tour guides Mike and Etre made a long day fun and entertaining.
Our tour guide Antoinella was wonderful full of interesting and funny stories the tour was a pleasure.
This was an incredible experience. The two tour guides where friendly, knowledgeable, and always interesting. The tour was one of the real highlights from our entire trip to Italy. I couldn't recommend this tour highly enough.
That was truly amazing experience. We had fantastic guides Stephanie and Ettore who were patient, funny and extremely informative, not to mention Vincenzo who guided us through the city of Pompeii and was absolutely amazing.
The trip itself was very long (13 hours) but it was worth every minute. Pompeii and Vesuvius are Italy must sees and we are delighted that we chose this trip.
