It was good!
Our tour guide, Valeria was just delightful! She was very knowledgeable, informative and conversational. On the bus drive up to the ruins, she gave a history of Sorrento, Mt. Vesuvius, Pompeii and Ercolana. She kept us on schedule through the ruins, but it was not rushed and she gave us time to stop and take photos. Lunch was great and we even stopped on the way back to take pictures of a breathtaking cliff-side drop. I would definitely recommend this tour!
Our guide was excellent, well organised, spoke great English, very friendly and approachable and was very knowledgeable as she had obviously put a lot of effort in to studying both sites.
My only complaint was that we did not have enough time at Pompeii as there is so much to see. Pompeii is much bigger than expected and is very popular, we were given a 2 hour tour by our guide but she had to miss out several places due to queues and the time restriction. In my opinion we should have had nearer to 4 hours at Pompeii, having said that I was not disappointed with either site, our guide got our imaginations running wild and everyone enjoyed this trip immensely. I would recommend visiting both sites to anyone but must say our guide made this trip extra special.
This was an absolutely wonderful tour thanks mostly to our guide Ludovica whose knowledge and appreciation about the sites was incredible. We were met at the pick up point on time and our group of 17 went first to Pompeii. Unfortunately for us, the first Sunday of the month is free and so the crowds were huge - we stood in line for about 1/2 hour to see the brothel. However Ludovica took us through the site pointing out the most interesting places and providing information about how the Romans lived and the devastation from the eruption. The included lunch was more than I had expected. Our table set for 8 had two bottles of water and two bottles of wine. Lunch was a huge caprese salad, a pizza or pasta which we didn't choose and a lemon gelato dessert. The highlight of the day was the visit to Herculaneum. This intact site gives you a more realistic sense of how the people lived having been preserved so well. I would highly recommend this tour - it was probably one of the most memorable events of our trip to Italy.
Herculeum was the highlight of the tour
Our guide Ludovica was very knowledgeable and courteous. She paced our tours of the two sites well on a sweltering hot day. Lunch was most enjoyable. I would recommend this tour.
Amazing day which was in no way spoilt by the rain. Lucia was our extremely enthusiastic and knowledgeable guide who brought history to life as we went round the historic sites. Pick up was on time and we were left right back to our hotel although that hadn't been included in the itinerary. We had a brilliant day. Thank you
Outstanding and an outstanding guide who was exceptionally passionate about the ruins. Even in the terrible heat and sun and people passing out from heat stroke bring water! she still made it an exceptionally worthwhile tour. It's too bad that almost all of the casts have removed to Milan for the Expo.
Our guide, Ludovica was excellent. She was extremely knowledgable and made the whole trip fun, even in the extreme humidity.
Also good to be in a small group. It meant that you could move around the crowded bits most of Pompeii easily.
Tour guide was excel t. We were lucky that neither site was crowded and we had plenty of time to see them., the tour was very enjoyable.
