Very nice guided tour of the Pompeii ruins. The guide explained everything so nicely. I am glad we bought this tour. After Pompeii we had lunch. The best pizza!! Then headed to Sorrento in a van. The guide was wonderful and stopped for nice pictures. Walked through the beautiful streets of Sorrento with a sampling of the famous drink Limoncello. Back to Naples by 5 to get our train back to Rome. Very nice tour. I would recommend it.
The guides were very informative and friendly. Pompeii was amazing. The problem with this tour is that there is not enough time in Sorrento. Total we spent 2 hours touring Pompeii and 1 hour walking around Sorrento. The rest of the time was spent on transportation and rallying people.
One of the best tours I've had in Italy. Despite the heat and members of our tour group disappearing around Pompeii every so often, our tour guide kept her cool albeit sometimes better than others and managed to complete the tour on time without us having to rush or skip out on seeing anything. The one bit of advice I have is about the Sorrento bit: the roads are small, windy mountain roads so if you have a ship or train to catch, add an extra hour to the ETA to allow for the slowness with which your brilliant bus driver can navigate the bus through those roads. truly brilliant - I have no idea how he managed to maneuver a 20-something seater bus along those roads!
