We had wanted to get a lay of the land on our first day in Sorrento, so we booked this tour. It was already booked for the evening, so we did the morning one. It did not disappoint! Tamara was our guide, and she was so nice and very knowledgeable. As we walked along, she gave us a bit of history and also took of to a few areas that had nothing to do with food, just to explain the areas around us. The pace was nice and we never felt that we were rushed or stayed too long at any destination. We sampled lots of goodies, spent time in the lemon grove, and had a delicious sit down lunch of Caprese salad, baked gnocchi and wine. I don't understand the reviews complaining about the amount of food or the cost. There was plenty of food and I thought it was a very good value.

Very well organized and our driver Rino could not have been more accommodating. He was professional and very knowledgeable of the arrears we visited. He made modifications to our trip based on the weather conditions ensuring we had an enjoyable day. The tour of Pompeii was amazing, our guide opened our eyes to many things we were not aware of. The winery tour was very good as well, their olives were amazing to eat ant the spicy bread was spectacular.
The visit to Pompeii, despite the oppressive heat and crowds was informative and educational. 1 hour 45 minute tour went by quickly. I could have spent more time there. The visit to the vineyard was fabulous. Lunch was out of the world good and we bought some bottles of wine and shipped home. Vesuvius was a bit of a disappointment. Took a while, long climb and visibility was nil. I guess if it was a clear day it might be worth it but would rather have had that time at Pompeii.

We had Massie has our driver and our guide. He was unbelievable and helped make this experience a unique and memorable one. We got to taste amazing wines and I can't wait for my orders of Brunello. The beauty of this wine region cannot be put into words and just has to be experienced first hand. This tour will give you everything you could possibly want in a wine tour with breathtaking views, excellent wine and amazing food. All the wineries have a great system for ordering wine, grapa and olive oil. There is no comparison on the quality of the wild boar salami and the pecorino cheese. This is just simple a must do if you have time in tuscany and want a great wine tour. We took 3 wine tours and the wineries we went to on this tour had the best wines.
Not exactly as we expected from start to finish. Our driver was switched out the morning of the trip and we weren't sure if he knew exactly what the expectations for the tour was. He drove very fast and that was somewhat alarming. We went to three different wineries and sampled delicious wines, bread and cheese. We were supposed to have lunch at the third winery but were served more cheese, bread, along with salami for lunch which did not exactly meet our expectations. When we got back into the van, the driver asked me what we were given for lunch and I told him. He said, "No pasta, lasagna?" I told him no food other than bread, cheese, salami and of course wine tastings. It was not exactly the kind of trip I would recommend for people who wanted to savor the Tuscan experience and learn a little about wine. The tour operators need to lock down their plans and instead of just driving us, they should check that the experience we are having is exactly what they are selling to us. It could have been much better for the price that was charged.

Pompeii Ruins & Wine Tasting with Lunch on Vesuvius with Private Transfer
From $250.11 (Price varies by group size )
, Nov 2019
Alfonso was our tour guide and was terrific. We ended up with a completely private tour for our party of three. Alfonso gave us full choice of what order we did the tour in - due to weather it made the most sense to try Vesuvius in case of closure and we had the volcano to ourselves for the first hour! On our way down, other tour groups started to come through - it was terrific having the place to ourselves (views are worth the ~20 min hike to the top). We then went to Pompeii and were amazed at the size of the ruins. Lunch and wine were terrific. The real highlight was the tour company - definitely pleased with our choice and felt fortunate to have received such a helpful and funny driver. Grazie Alfonso!
First rate! We had an amazing afternoon at Cantina de Vesuvius!! The vineyard tour was fun and informative, the wine was good and lunch was delicious.
The Pompeii tour was fun- I would love to have had more time to explore. An overall great afternoon :) Thank you for a memorable afternoon

Mount Vesuvius with lunch
, Oct 2019
Comfortable vehicle from Sorrento. Adequate time to clime to the crater and enjoy contact with Mount Vesuvius. Interesting vineyard and wine making facilities but rather superficial contact with them. A reasonable lunch.
A great experience combining a trip to see the crater of Vesuvius followed by a light lunch and wine tasting. The wine was very good and those brave enough did a spot of grape treading the traditional way. It was good fun as long as you were prepared to expose your toe nails to public scrutiny..
