The view at the top is fantastic. There were a combination of guides at different times and it was a reasonably large group, however I had no issue hearing the guide. Air conditioned transport was perfect as it was an awfully hot day. The pizza meal to start the tour was a real treat.

The hike is a workout but the views from the top of the crater are beautiful!
Great afternoon, hotel pickup, lunch and then coach up the mountain.
Medium, to hard walk up to Vesuvius top. Views of mountain and Napoli, our amazing.
Great guide. Wonderful experience walking up the last long mile. Thanks
This is not for the fainthearted; the trek to the summit can be gruelling should one not be wearing the right footwear and have drinking water. The tour on the other hand was good with a very knowledgeable tour guide. The views from the summit are amazibg and there is that sense of achievement having made it to the top.
It will be a challenging walk to the top after you get off of the bus, which takes you most of the way up. We went in June so it was very hot, which made it harder. It was well worth it though. The bus needed to be cooler. Be sure to bring water for the trek up. There are shops at the top where you can purchase drinks, snacks, and souvenirs.
Excellent all round.
If you plan on seeing Pompeii and Herculaneum you should see Vesuvius as well. Amazing views of the region and a chance to see an active (if currently very placid) volcano. Our guide was excellent and very entertaining and the driver was very good as well (believe me you want that). Worth the climb.
It was a great experience to climb to the top of the volcano! Since we had already toured Pompei, it was interesting and insightful to go to the top of the volcano. The climb to the top is a little difficult if you are out of shape but manageable since you can stop to rest as often as you need. The view from the top is amazing! The tour company arrived on time and picked me up at the hotel. It took longer than advertised since they had to pick up other people as well though. They give you just enough time to climb to the top and come back down and do a little shopping and then will drive you back to your hotel. Wear comfortable shoes!!
