We loved this tour! Stephanie and Manuelle were great tour guides! Stephanie shared historical stories on the sites we were driving by, while Manuelle entertained us with the espresso rules of Italy. Both guides were very kind and were available for any questions, whether it was related to restaurant recommendations, taxis, etc.
While we didn't get a chance to climb Mount Vesuvius it was raining super hard so they had to close the park, we were able to go to the National Archeological Museum of Pompeii instead. We would have loved to have climbed Mount Vesuvius, but nothing anyone could do about the weather. By the time the afternoon rolled around, the same came out and we were able to enjoy a wonderful tour of Pompeii.
Having the whole day planned out and having tour guides point out historical sites was so worth it! We highly recommend doing this tour!
This tour was amazing by the two most enjoyable knowledgable characters,our Tour Guides Julio and Alexandra. Orange Pink Group. The tour would have to be the highlight of our trip. It was well organized, the stop offs the lunch. Mt Versivus, Ancient Pompeii. Impressive!
I went on this day trip with 2 friends. Our leader was Melanie and she was lovely ,so friendly and helpful .
We got on the bus ,and were entertained the whole way by Melanie and Eleana and Mariuz the driver ,were told the history of the area and funny stories.
When we got to Pompeii ,we had a local guide with 40 years experience ,Ginero or Genero not sure of spellng.He was so passionate and knowledgable and really gave is a proper idea about what it would have been like in 79 ad.
Lunch was lovely .
The trek up Vesuvius was harder than I thought It was going to be especailly after just eating a pizza but the views were amazing and I really enjoyed it.
Over all this trip was fantastic ,we definately got more than our moneys worth ,Melanie and Eleana were full of info and entertaining andthe bus driver was brilliant negociating all those bends.
Would highly recommend!!
Ahh, where to begin...this tour was the highlight of my trip for sure. First, the tour guides, Stephanie and I can't remember the other lady's name were very pleasant and passed the time well with information about the destinations as the picturesque bus ride went along. They did this periodically and it was not excessive so you had time to have conversations with others on the tour or just to relax. The tour of Pompeii was not conducted by the tour guides that were on the bus, but the lady that did this tour was also very nice, funny and knowledgable. Lunch was good, the bus tour guides gave a nice story of the area that tied it nicely together with the menu for lunch and the flavor was pretty good. The Mount Vesuvius hike was surely the high point, pardon the pun, of the tour...the views were just stunning. I will say that they aren't lying when they say that it requires some physical fitness. I was able to make it to the furthest point of the path up the volcano but I wouldn't describe the hike as easy. There are 3 stopping points on the hike and the views from each are equally nice, you don't lose much by not making it all the way to the top, so if you don't make it you certainly have not been cheated. Do yourself a favor and make this tour a priority if you are in the area!!!
Excellent tour guides, good amount of time in each location, nice buses. Highly recommend!
Brilliant experience!! Was debating whether to do such a long trip during a short break to Rome 5days however the 3 hour coach ride there and back was completely worth it! Was I tired at the end of the day..sure but the culture and experience was well worth it! Guides were fantastic, made the journey seem a lot shorter than it was, Roberts stories about old rome/Pompeii were brilliant. The lady guide was fantastic as well sorry forgotten name. Highly recommend climbing Vesuvius! Knackering but views were insane!
I highly recommend this trip! It was such a great learning experience. Our guide team was very knowledgeable and fun a great combination! Pompeii was amazing. I have been reading about it for years and it did not disappoint. The guide we had at Pompeii was also amazing! For amyone traveling to Rome I recommend booking this trip it more then worth the time and money.
This tour was an amazing experience from start to finish. Our tour guide Luca was incredibly knowledgable and helped create an unforgettable experience from his outstanding knowledge to his jokes and charm. the organisation of the tour was great with smooth transitions between trips and coach journeys. The archaeologist at Pompeii was also fantastic with his explanations and engaging content as we were guided through the ancient city. The included meal was also delicious and was far larger than expected. Highly recommended and worth every penny.
Amazing! Great hike and view from the top of the volcano! Pomepeii is an incredible experience!
We were so glad we chose to go on this trip. First, our guides were so knowledgable and fun! And the guide at Pompeii was awesome! It was amazing to see a whole town preserved! The climb to Vesuvius wasn't too bad because it's a short hike and the view was beautiful. The bus ride was fun too!
This has been a dream for many years to visit Pompeii, and being able to go to the volcano made it even better. The meal we were served for lunch was plentiful, and the tour guides were VERY entertaining and knowledgeable.
Luca and Hector were brilliant. They had loads of information to pass on, and explained about the sights as we traveled to Pompeii.
What this booking doesn't say is that your lunch is included in the price, and the restaurant we stopped at was lovely and cool.
This trip is more than worth it's money, but be aware the climb to Vasuviouse is hard going, especially if your not super fit, but worth it for the views alone. Would I recommend this trip....YES!

We took this tour with CityWonders. I can not recommend this company enough. Our guide was Antonella, and she partnered with another guide, Elena. They were both fantastic. They were knowledgeable about everything it seemed. They gave us facts during our bus ride about the places we were passing. They knew a lot about Pompeii and Mount Vesuvius. They kept us entertained with fun anecdotes and stories throughout the trip. The 3 hour bus ride was broken in half with a 20 minute food/bathroom break. There was a local guide, Lena, at Pompeii that took us through the site, who was also very knowledgeable and entertaining and made the most of our short time there. The lunch at the restaurant was fairly well organized, for Italy. Italians I found work at their own pace. Our bus driver Alberto was amazing. It was a little scary taking the small rode up to Mount Vesuvius, be he did a wonderful job. The climb up to the top was difficult. The only thing I would say is that it would have been nice to have a little longer at Mt. Vesuvius. Overall though, everything was great.
The schedule worked very well. Luca was extremely helpful and informative. Also the local Pompeii guide was well-informed and helpful.
Our guide Anna was wonderful. She had lot of knowledge and was very helpful. The trip was a good one.
Pompeii was amazing, the highlight of my stay in Italy. Our guides, Luca and Julio and driver Massimo could not have been better. The walk up the side of Vesuvius to look down into the crater capped it all off.
The sites visited were incredibly. The tour structure Bus and guides were also very good and everything ran on time.
Very informative and educational tour. We were provided a lot of information during the day, not only on Pompeii, but also about Rome. We thoroughly enjoyed it and thought the tour guides did a fantastic job!
I had been to Pompeii before on my own, and this time took the tour since I was travelling with my daughter and granddaughter who were first timers. I was amazed at how much information I had missed on my first visit and that was explained so clearly by our guides. Furthermore, the hike up Vesuvius was very enjoyable and the views absolutely outstanding. This trip is definitely worth the long bus ride to and fro. Our guides, Antonella and Elaina were great.
My sister and I went on the tour yesterday and it was fantastic from start to finish.
Yes it's a super long day and the climb up the volcano can be testing at points but the satisfaction and view from the top is not to bemused!
Anna was very informative and really made the tour a special one
