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.
Pompeii and private guide were excellent. Enough time spent there to see and learn. Climbing Vesuvius breath taking a little challenging with uphill angles and ground unevenness so not for those who have difficulty walking and the ability to see into the crater was amazing. The wine tour was disappointing. Quick two minute explanation of the vineyard them a mediocre lunch with some samplings. The lunch and quality of wines could have been better. Still worth doing the tour though for Pompeii and Vesuvius. PAY ATTENTION to the details of this tour though because nothing included - we had to pay for entry to Pompeii 12euro, entry to Vesuvius 10 euro, and 28 euro for the lunch so the cost is really 50 euro more per person.
Amazing day out. Pompeii was amazing. Our guide was excellent. Mt Vesuvius was a trek but worthwhile. Highlight of the day was the food and wine tour. Food was authentic and plentiful and it's the only place I've been told to drink quicker as they had more wine to give us! Would highly recommend
Our tour host in Pompeii, Cara, was very knowledgeable and extremely pleasant. Definitely would recommend her. Our driver Marco, less so. Got us around, but appeared that he'd rather be elsewhere. We only did Pompeii and passed on Mt. Vesuvius and the Wine Tour. Had a better time walking the streets of Naples and eating at a local pizza joint.
Excellent way to accomplish three highlights in one day. Our driver, Nello, safely shuttled us from location to location. At Pompeii we had a private guided 2 hour tour. The guide was knowledgable and since 2 of the 4 of us had toured Pompeii about 9 years ago, he took us in at a different entrance and we saw many sights that we had not seen the first time. Pompeii cannot be seen in just 2 hours, but this gave us a wonderful overview for what life might have been like. From there we drove as far up Mt. Vesuvius as allowed. Highly recommend sturdy walking shoes and coat with hood, as the walk from that point is winding and up hill on a path with loose gravel, and at the top it's very windy and much colder. So glad we were prepared otherwise we never would have made it to the rim. Our driver did not rush us and set a return time, which was great, as our family was 2 twenty-two year olds and 2 sixty year olds...needless to say we achieved to walk up and down a different speeds. Lastly, we enjoyed a delicious lunch, tasting, and nice tour of the vineyard. It was a beautiful day and we enjoyed sitting out on the patio for lunch.
