Tour was great. Our guides Dmitry, Luka and the Driver Antonio did an exceptional job. The limited time we had was optimized well and we did not feel like wasting time in any placewhich I felt in some other trips.
Great tour! Out guide Melanie was extremely knowledgable and fun to listen to. She even gave us great restaurant recommendations afterwards based on where we were staying! Our Pompeii guide was also very knowledgable and gave us an excellent tour. We were given enough time to explore Pompeii and Vesuvius on our own. Definitely recommend!
Peter and Jonathon were awesome guide for this trip. Very knowledgeable about all the points of interest on the way and on our return trip.
Once we arrived, our local guide, Enzo, was just great. He gave us wonderfulsometimes humorous descriptions of what we were seeing in Pompeii.
We enjoyed the trip very much.
Our guides Mara and Ana and driver Marilena (spelling?) were the best! They were funny and knowledgable. The hike up Mt Vesuvius was short but steep, took about 30min to get to the top. Our Guide at Pompeii was great too. I usually prefer to sightsee on my own, this tour changed my mind!
One of the highlights of our Rome vacation. Our tour guide, Antonella, made it an educational and fun-filled adventure from beginning to end. The bus was very comfortable and lots of visibility to see the sights.
We had a wonderful day learning about the history and culture of Pompeii. Our guide, Andrew, was knowledgeable, entertaining, and akLso gave us good tips for travelling in Rome
History is my passion so this day trip was heaven for me. Unfortunately the weather precluded a trip to the volcano and instead we went to a very interesting museum in Naples that holds many of the artifacts of Pompeii and surrounding areas. The museum employees however decided to close-off many of the exhibits we wanted to see probably on a whim. The Italian people are socialist-leaning and given a chance not to work or to go on strike they'll take it. Overall wonderful we had a great group leader on the bus and at Pompeii.

Everything was awesome! First off, our tour guides, Sarah and Enzo, were very well organized and knowledgeable. They were great at keeping us informed throughout the day. They spoke excellent English and were very detailed in all of Italy's history and answering our questions. Alfredo, our awesome bus driver, drove 1.5 hrs to a rest stop in Cassino where we had 15 min to stretch our legs, use the toilets, and grab some coffee or snacks. Back on the bus for the next hour to Pompeii, our guides spoke to us about the history of Pompeii and what to expect when we arrive, which made the drive fly by. At Pompeii, we were split into 2 groups with 10-12 per group and we had excellent audio systems to hear our guide at all times. In addition to our tour guides, each group was provided a professional Pompeii historian guide to teach us about its history. The tour was fantastic! We had plenty of time to take photos and walk around on our own while still able to listen via audio systems and keep up with the group. Lunch was ok, not the best salad and pizza I've had, but pretty good for being included with the tour. TIP: Your first drink is included, each add'tl is 4 euro. Mt Vesuvius was an awesome experience! We had a little more than one hour to climb to the top and back. It took 20-30 min to reach the top at a moderate-to-slow pace stopping to rest and take photos along the way. It's pretty cool to be able to say you climbed an active volcano! On the way home, we stopped in Cassino for a break, then continued back to Rome. During our return, our guides conversed with everyone individually to ask if we had any questions/feedback about the tour or Italy in general, then answered everyone's questions out loud for everyone on the bus. There were a lot of helpful tips offered regarding places to eat, safety, etc. TIPS: Bring snacks for the ride. // There are plenty of chances to rest/nap on the bus. // Bus carries cold water for 1 euro
The guides, Melanie, Francesco, and Giorgio, were knowledgeable, lively, warm, and friendly. I learned a lot and had a lot of fun. It was terrific!
Absolutely brilliant! A full on day but even the 3 hour coach journey was entertaining by our hosts Pete and John filling the time with fun and interesting facts about Italy! It was great to be able to do this in our time in Rome, it broke the days up and was 100 worth it- I would go again! Recommend to everyone!
The day trip tour to Pompeii was well organized and comfortable. Luca and Manuel were great guides. Alberto was a fantastic driver. The local guide at Pompeii, Enzo, was incredible! There was enough time at the comfort stops and information shared by the guides about Rome during our return was of value.
This was a tour my granddaughter and I booked and I think it was well worth the effort and money. The tour was conveniently arranged for pick up and drop off. The tour guides, Jonathan and Peter were amazing founts of information. Art, architecture, history and personal vignettes made the 3 hour trip down and back interesting and informative. Although I had been to Pompeii several times, I still found new insights with these two young men. Please take this trip, you will enjoy it!
Absolutely wonderful day trip to Vesuvius and Pompeii - first class service all the way! The guides, Lucca and Manuel were knowledgeable, entertaining and extremely helpful and the driver Alberto was skilled and very competent. The pizza lunch was very good and we had plently of time to observe and explore both Pompeii and Vesuvius. I would highly recommend this trip and will definitely be using this company for excursions again.
Very well organized Ana our tour guide was very nice and give us a lot of information about Rome, Naples and Italy, my family and I enjoyed and recommend the tour. Lunch was good.
This tour is a fantastic value. Pompeii and Vesuvius are must-see and are so impressive in person. Our guides Mara and Antonella were very knowledgable and made the lone bus ride enjoyable. Highly reccomend this tour!
informative and professional guider from Rome to Pompeii and at local Pompeii. it is the must program if you want to enjoy a tour with historical and local culture information.
This was an amazing trip. The guides provided useful information to make the trip more meaningful. From the rim of Mt Vesuvius we could look down into the crater and looking out we saw the spectacular view of the Bay of Naples and its city. After a nice lunch we preceeded to walk the city streets of Pompeii and imagine what life was like before 79AD when the city was destroyed by the eruption of the volcano. This was a full day including the bus ride from Rome and back. There was a break midway for a stretch and perhaps a cup of coffee/expresso. It was a very special day we shared with our two grandsons who enjoyed it as much as we did.
Luca was our guide and he was fantastic, loved the knowledge he had...the day trip was fantastic highly recommend it
