Lovely guide chatted most of the way on the journey to and up the volcano. Very informative and entertaining. Comfortable small bus took us most of the way up. Then we were dropped off to make our way up the rest of the climb. There was a little confusion over who had entrance tickets for climbing up the volcano, this was not the guides fault it is the system of booking which offers tickets to some but not all. However the excellent guide sorted everyone out and we were all able to go up to the crater mouth. Facilities on Vesuvius are basic to say the least, tardis toilets in that heat are not pleasant! Journey back to our hotel/drop off points was excellent with more local information from our guide. A great morning out

The tour was great! We had a knowledgeable and funny tour guide. The hike was tough to the top of the volcano but it was worth it when we got th there. This tour was definitely worth it!

I highly recommend this tour! Convenient pick up points. Our guide Clementina was friendly and gave us information about what we were passing the whole way there. Our only thing was that we stopped at a random jewellery showroom where we were told there would be refreshments bit there were none.

Driver and guide were excellent and informative and coach was comfy and cool for the trip and just the right amount of time allowed on the top. Only downside was that our pre-booked pick up at 9am was moved to 7.50am the night before the trip without explanation and it then took us 3 hours to get to Vesuvius due to the other pick-ups so a 4 hour trip turned in to almost a full day

Unfortunately our guides English was not great but she managed to get all the information across fine all the same. I felt we were not given enough time on this trip as unfortunately traffic was pretty heavy getting to Vesuvius and took an hour longer than expected. The guide and driver were aware of the traffic problems around this area at this time of year September but no alterations were made. We were given 75 minutes to get from the parking area to the summit, look around and get back again. It takes around 25 to 30 minutes to walk to the summit depending on how fit you are some of our group took 35 minutes. This does not give you much time to look around or go that little further and gives you no time at all for a guided tour at the top which would have been very interesting.

We had a small group of about 10 people on this trip which was ideal. The guide joined us on the climb to the crater we didn't realise how steep the climb would be so comfortable trainers and lots of water are a must! The guide arranged the Vesuvius tour guide once we got to the top of the mountain and allowed us to explore at our leisure once the talk was over. Definitely worth doing as part of a smaller group as opposed to a large excursion.
