This was one of my favorite experiences in Italy! The Pompeii archeological site was really cool and well preserved. The climb to Mount Vesivius is pretty intense but definitely worth it to see the scenery on top. Definitely recommend!
Our tour guide (Gennaro) and driver (Carmine) were fantastic and really made every effort to make our tour enjoyable and memorable. They paid particular attention to the well being of our 2 young sons and were very inclusive of them .
This small group tour was everything we hoped it would be. Our tour guide Daniela was very nice and knowledgable. In the limited time we had in Pompeii, she took us to the most interesting sights and explained everything to us in great detail and so it was quite the educational experience. At Vesuvius, she explained the natural surroundings and we had time to wander around the crater and take in this impressive sight. Our driver Carlo got us around safely and punctually and we felt were in good hands. All and all, a very great day trip to one of the most fascinating archeological sights in Italy and a great chance to get up and close with a volcano. I would recommend this trip to anyone who's considering this. Thank you Daniela and Carlo for a wonderful day!
We really enjoyed this trip; the only downside was that our guide stopped guiding us when we reached Vesuvius and did the climb. (She stayed in the bus.) The tour would have been better if she had continued with us up the volcano and provided more geography/history commentary along the way.
Great day tour from Positano. Easy to get to meeting point in town, walkable from most areas. Save a lot of money over private transfers. Great tour guide for Pompeii. Our group was small in early June, 6 total in a big van. My Vesuvius was a fun hike up a well trodden wide path with good views. Right price point, drove straight to sites. Guide knew her stuff!
Pompeii and Mt. V themselves are fabulous, but we booked a ‘small group’ tour. Well, there were around 25-30 people, it was very hard to hear out of the headsets and the pizza included WAS NOT part of the package. We all sat at a subpar restaurant and paid 14 EUR for either pizza or pasta. Our tour guide was super friendly, cute and knowledgeable. We both feel like we missed some key areas of Pompeii. I saw other tour guides talk about things that we did not hear. However, I was very grateful to have seen Pompeii and Mt. V.
Dear Traveler, thank you for taking your time reviewing our tour. You can see from our website and brochures that the descirptions of the tours are accurate, the maximum number of passengers is 21, the buses longer than 8 mt cannot get into Positano, it's forbidden so we could not operate this tour with a bus of 25-30 people.
The lunch /pizza is not included and thi is stated in all our webistes.
Sometimes, due to the brokerage with some online sellers, there is a lack on information. Can you please contact us at email@example.com ? so we can figure out where did you book the tour and fix any issue.
Pompeii is a huge archaeological site, and we should highlights all the "not to be missed" areas in 2 hours of walking tour, to explore the whole extent it can take more than 6 hours.
We hope to hear from you soon.
We thoroughly enjoyed our Pompeii and Mount Vesuvius tour. It was really interesting to be immersed in the history of Pompeii and imagine ourselves back in the time. Our tour guide Roberta was excellent and gave us a nice taste of the flavor of Pompeii. The trek to Mount Vesuvius was a long one, more walking and steeper than I imagined it would be. Good shoes are a must as the trail is often uneven and rocky. It is easy enough to do for anyone in reasonably good shape and the view on the way up and once you get to the top is nothing short of spectacular, well worth the trek. Lunch between Pompeii and Mount Vesuvius was a bit of a cattle call and the food was just so so, but it was inexpensive (just 14 euro) and we were hungry, so it was all good. The bus was prompt and comfortable and the drive from Positano was beautiful too.
I really enjoyed this tour. Amanuela (sp?) was our guide and she was great. Very informative and had a very sweet and funny personality. When I asked her about her experience, she said she's been doing these tours for 9 years, so I knew we were in good hands. She told us exactly what was going to happen during the tour and even though we were seeing the "highlights" of Pompeii - we gained a lot of knowledge from it. We had beautiful weather for Pompeii but it was more cloudy and cooler on Mt. Vesuvius. The climb to the top is definitely worth it (but also a bit of a challenge)! Overall - if you have a free day on the Amalfi Coast - I recommend this tour 100%.
This tour was well planned and very interesting. They arrived on time. Carmela was good tour guide with lots of information. Time was spent wisely seeing all the highlight. The walk up Vesuvius was a little challenging but definitely a must! They really could do without the pizza stop not worth it.
