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!!
Giovani was the best guide we had our whole trip! His knowledge and humour was awesome!
This is a wonderful experience. Our tour guide Giovani (?) was a hoot. not only did he give a great history of the area of Sorrento to Naples ,but he had a great sense of humor and I saw him go up to every single person on the trip and talk to them personally to make sure they were enjoying the trip and asked about them. The trip itself is an experience on its own. the ride to Naples is beautiful. the stop at the cantina is nice.(since there are no restrooms on Vesuvius) we learned how they made the wine that we would be tasting later. Then to the 4x4's.... OMG what a ride!!!! It is bumpy as anything and on roads you cant imagine made for travel. And that was half the fun of it. once at the parking lot near the top you got out paid an extra 10 euro (which they collected ahead of time allowing anyone who didn't want to go to the top the option of staying in the parking area) then a 20 min hike to the top as Giovani explained more about the area, Vesuvius, and Pompeii. Then we had 2 hours to walk around the crater. which is really cool. Smoke still coming out of the sides here and there. Then back down for the 4x4 trip back down the mountain. Then back to the Cantina for lunch and wine tasting. The wines are amazing and the food is delicious. then back on the bus to Sorrento with Giovani singing a few funny songs with our bus driver doing backup with the horn. It was one of the many highlights of our trip and I would DEFINITELY recommend this trip.
I have been waiting to write this review. This was one of our favorite tours on our entire Italy trip because of so many things. Mainly because of Gianni. We fell in love with him. My mother (the lady from Avellino) loved him. He was a great tour guide. We had so much fun. The walk up Vesuvius was breath taking. The food at the Vineyard was so delicious. But the singing in the bus on the way back to Sorrento was priceless. Then to make out trip better, we saw Gianni in Revello. What a treat!
Gianni, well try to find you next year. We will see you again. Thanks for the fun, Cheryl, Marie (mama), Patrick, and Ayrana
The highlight of our trip to Italy. Standing on the peak was breathtaking, the views amazing.
Our guide Gianni was friendly, happy and courteous throughout the tour and very knowledgeable on the history of the entire area of Sorrento.
The walk through the vines, lunch and wine testing capped off a perfect day.
Would recommend this tour to anyone considering visiting Sorrento/Mt Vesuvius
Fantastic day trip. Giovanni the tour guide was excellent lunch and the wine were very good.
Great tour, a little cloudy but the experience was good. Tour guide Gabby made the day one to remember.
Excellant trip, guide ( Sasa ) was very knowledgable, and enthusiaistic about the subject and history of the area. Well worth the journey top stand at the top of the volcano. We had a query over pick up location, and the company resolved it by picking us up outside Hotel which was a great help, all in all a great day... Many Thanks
We enjoyed this tour. The company was good enough to pick us up closer to our town, en route, rather than us travelling 30 minutes to meet them. Our guide, Laura, was very knowledgable and paced the tour nicely.
It is a bit of a hike,on unlevelled ground and was slippery at times. You really need good footwear and in half decent shape to make it to the top. The 4x4 portion was rough. Bounced around a fair bit, but fun.
The lunch and wine tasting was delightful. Lots of flies tho. We did a brief tour of the winery and then headed back. It was a long day in the sun, but very beautiful once you make it to the top.
A good variety of walking, dining and wine tasting with excellent views of Mt Vesuvius and Naples
the hole trip was good lunch and wine tasting is in my view the high light, but going up to rim and finding that i have to pay more money to get there was disppointing, i feel you should inform in your adverts before people book the trips as they are already a large cost.
This is a great experience. The 4X4 is an experience not to be forgotten! It was quite uncomfortable at times. Once we got out of 4X4 and started to walk the last 25 minutes it was great. Definitely wear trainers as makes the walk more comfortable. Some people struggled with the walk more than others but once we were at the top it was really worthwhile. The views were amazing. So pleased we did this.
