Why Travelers Choose This Tour

This tour explores Pompeii and Vesuvius and gives visitors to Naples what they crave—pizza for lunch.
Your guide will collect you from your hotel or train station to kick off this Mt Vesuvius and Pompeii day trip from Naples. Venture into the ancient Roman city of Pompeii on a half-hour coach ride and learn the history behind the area that was infamously covered by ash nearly 2000 years ago. 

Follow your guide on a walking tour of this UNESCO World Heritage-listed site and learn about Europe’s largest archeological grounds. Stop at the Forum, Thermal Baths, Vetti’s House and the Lupanare brothel. Your guide will offer historical context and insight into local life here back in 79 AD. Once you’ve explored the grounds, savor an Italian pizza lunch with your group before enjoying time to wander the shops.

Afterward, travel by air-conditioned coach to Mt Vesuvius and journey on a moderate hike to the top of the active volcano with your guide. At the summit, some 3,900 feet (1,200 meters) above sea level, take in panoramic views of the Bay of Naples. Roam around the volcano's mammoth crater and keep an eye out for plumes of escaping steam. If you prefer to skip the hike, you'll enjoy free time while waiting for the group, but the trip to the top is definitely worth the effort.

After successfully climbing the top of Mt Vesuvius, relax with a ride back to your Naples hotel or back to the port in your comfortable coach.

There were no issues with the excursion. However, beware that there is no guide at Mt. Vesuvius. The company would drop us off and trek by ourselves. Once we reached the top they said that the guide would take you around the crater and he only took us to 1 of the points and said to walk the rest by ourselves and guide would be at other points. That never happened and delayed us by almost 30 minutes to reach the bottom by the bus pickup. The tour company waited for us even though we were delayed but this is not a guided tour.
Amazing

The guide of Pompeia tour was competente and very profissional. We learn a lotação about Pompéia and we enjoy the visit. In the afternoon we went to Vesúvio. During our ascending towards Vesúvios top, we saw a lot of garbage along the road.

There is no way to deal with Pompeii and Vesuvius at 9 hours alone while grasping the important mile stones of Pompeii. We booked the tour for a group of 7 with kids, youth and even elders. It is really hot during August be sure to bring hat put sun screen and plenty of water. Our guide was charming and very informative and managed to give us a taste of Pompeii in just hours. Vesuvius is a difficult climb so our elder decided to pass and waited for us near the bus. We managed to arrive at 17:15 giving us plenty of time to go on board.

This was a great trip. We first visited Mt Vesuvius, then had an amazing lunch, followed by a tour of Pompei. Our tour guide Lisa was very good, provided so much information in an entertaining way. To top it, the tour company was so accommodating, they picked us up at our hotel with our luggage, and dropped us off at the train station since we had a train to catch after the tour. Would definitely recommend this tour.
Ok

The girl that showed us around Pompeii was ok, she didn't seem very into it, but it could have been the heat. It was hard to hear and she wasted a lot of time. Everything else was good.
Great day

Couldn't recommend this tour enough. Loads of communication from the company prior to the day of the tour. Mt Vesuvius is not an easy walk, it's steep, but a steady pace and abit of determination will get you up there - It's worth it! Also, take your own water. Lunch was good, choice of pizza, lasagne or spaghetti, all with a drink. Then an awesome tour around Pompeii. Elisa was so informative, the site is so big and there is only so much you can see in a half day, but she made us want to go back and learn more about this amazing place. (Be aware you need a tour guide because there are no signs telling you what you are looking at). Excellent guys, thank you!
Amazing day.

This is an exhausting day with a lot of walking but would not have missed it. Our guides and driver were excellent especially the young lady who accompanied us around Pompeii. Excellent knowledge and very accommodating to any questions. Lunch was good although was not really needed in our opinion. The hike to the top of Vesuvius was not for the faint hearted and this must be taken into consideration if you are thinking of doing it but the views at the top are breathtaking. Heat was intense but it is August so we were prepared. Overall a great day.
