Wonderful trip! Picked up in a central location in Sorrento, enjoyed the hike and winery afterwards!
This was a wonderful trip with a very knowledgable guide. An incident regarding the return trip in the 4 wd bus washandld very professionally by our guide.
Great tour! The 4X4 tour by special buses was fun. Afterwards a probably 20 minute hike to the top where a ranger explained the history of the volcano to us. Afterwards, we had ample time to take pictures and hike back down to the bus. Next, off to the winery where we had plenty of wine and food. Lots of fun!
WOW...what an amazing experience. The 4X4 tour made me feel like I was on a Jurasic Park experience!!! It was fun and educational. Hiking to the top of the mountain and seeking the smoke still radiating from the mountain was amazing. I had a great time!!
We LOVED this tour!! It was so much fun walking some would say hike up Mt. Vesuvius. The wine tasting lunch after was also AMAZING. Highly recommend this tour!!!
We had a great experience from start to finish. Easily found the pick up point. Great commentary by our guide on our way to the base of Mt Vesuvius where we got on the 4 x 4 to go up Mt Vesuvius. Very bumpy ride up and down, but that was half the fun. Plenty of time to walk around, take pictures and enjoy the view. Magnificent light lunch and wine tasting. Much more wine than we anticipated and great hosts at the winery. No complaints. Had a great day, met great people and had a nap on the way back to Sorrento.
Excellent trip. The tour guide Laura was lovely very friendly, good fun and knowledgeable. We stopped at the Cantina to learn about the wine and olive oil production before the fun, albeit bone shaking, 4x4 ride to the crater ascent point. I would say that you have to be moderately fit to hike to the crater. Lunch and the wine tasting was good too. Wear sensible footwear!

A GREAT trip! Very informative and loved the wine tasting and lunch afterwards. Our guide Sasa was the BEST! I would highly recommend this trip! Reasonably priced and a trip you will never forget.
Excellent tour from start to finish. Great info from the guide on the coach journey. Loved the 4 x 4, lunch was fab and the wine tasting was good fun too.
Overall an excellent tour and great value for money. It's really worth booking a tour instead of doing it on your own. THe tour guide was very knowledgable and looked after everybody really well. The lunch at the vineyard was fantastic in an a,axing setting at the foot of Vesuvius. The olives, salami and bread for starters was exquisite and the spaghetti and tomatoes was to die for, amazing flavour! All in all I would say it's the best way to do Vesuvius, we fit everything in, had a great time and we're back at the hotel by mid afternoon. A word of warning though - take some sensible shoes not flip flops or open toed sandals, the volcanic ash gets everywhere!
Desiree was our tour guide and she was EXCELLENT! The hike part gets a little steep and is sandy but you certainly don't have to be in tip top shape to do it, so don't let it scare you. The winery was amazing. The views were beautiful, the food was delicious and the wine was amazing.
This was a great trip, the hike up the mountain was awesome. Our guide was very informative!
Fabulous tour, Enjoyed Vesuvius the tour guide was very knowledgeable. The wine tasting and lunch was the icing on the cake, lovely food and plenty of it and lots of tasty wines, kept topping up the glasses. Great day out I would recommend to anyone.
Outstanding tour. Great restaurant, well organized, and great value.
My Wife and I throuroughly enjoyed this full day. Much of this was down to the professional guide who ensured that we made the most of this tour.
Great tour and great pictures! Loved it! Alberio sp? was wonderful, and very informative:
Great tour. Well organised. Tour guide Roberta was very good and friendly.
Loved the tour Alberio is quite a character. Made the tour very enjoyable.
The hike to the top of the crater was Great had plenty of time at top.
Winery tour and lunch was outstanding really was a great deal. Thanks Alberio and Viator
It's a long drive from Sorrento to Vesuvius but the bus was air conditioned, our guide Desiree was chatty and vivacious along the way and gave us lots of interesting information about the countryside we passed through. The 4x4 ride up most of the mountain was surprisingly comfortable but looking out of the window was sometimes NOT comfortable! Long way down. We managed the climb the rest of the way to the crater, a bit of a struggle at times, and the views from the top were well worth the climb. Amazing! We then went down again to a lovely winery at the foot of Vesuvius where we had a tour of the vines, some wine tasting and an absolutely gorgeous lunch. It all got a little hazy after that............ This was a great trip and I would highly recommend it - however not for anyone with mobility problems. Combining Vesuvius and then the lunch at the winery is a stroke of genius and we all had a lovely day. Luckily Desiree has obviously done this tour many times and knows that most people will sleep on the bus back to the hotel! Very good tour with a very good guide.
Giovanni was the best tour guide ever. Knowledgeable and fun. The hike was tough but so amazing. The tour and lunch was one of the best times of my whole trip. That food and wine. Highly recommend this tour.
This tour was great. We enjoyed climbing to the top of Mt Vesuvius. The views were great. The one thing to know is that you need to have good balance and should wear tennis shoes. The tour of the winery was good. The food and wine were both very good! Our tour guide Giovanni was excellent!!
