An excellent trip notwithstanding torrential rain in Herculaneum. Our guide Stephania was genuinely omniscient and very personable to boot. Fascinating but too short !
This is a great tour, highly recommended. Even through a little rain Pompeii is amazing! We've been to many ancient sites and this is right up with the best of them. The tour takes about 2 hours and delivers all the most important things to see. Lots of the group weren't going on to Herculaneum which is a pity. Although only 20 of Herculaneum has been uncovered it is an incredible example of a Roman holiday city. Just fabulous, don't do one without the other.
All day tour to both places is well worth it. Starting at Pompeii, we were able to go into a coral sales room. There are some really beautiful pieces of jewelry here and a wide price range so there is something for everyone. Next Pompeii was toured. You really have to use your imagination for a lot of the ruins. Of the two locations, this is the largest but most destroyed by Vesuvius. The brothel area was most interesting as well as the sauna room and how it was heated. Lunch was provided and the choices were delicious. Herculaneum was our next stop and while it is much smaller, it is far more preserved. Again, our guide was fabulous and knew not just the history but the interesting stories that went with it. I think we enjoyed Herculaneum more since we could actually see how the people lived at that time. Great tour.
My husband and I had a great day out, exploring both cities. Our guide was very informative and helpful. Our lunch stop off was great, the quality of food was very good! Would highly recommend this tour!
An awesome day was had by my wife and I at Pompeii and Herculaneum, despite the humidity. Our guide in Pompeii was professional, knowledgeable and so friendly!! ( sorry I don and #39;t have her name but she was great.....had a lime umbrella!!)
The audio Guide programme in Herculaneum was great.
Pompeii was brought to life by our guide Stephania - and lived up to expectations.
Herculaneum was another step up - and with the same guide we saw and heard so much more than we could have expected.
A must do for anyone with real interest.
Our guide was very good as she had great expression and passion about the life and death at that time.
This was a fantastic trip and we enjoyed every minute. The guide sorry but never found out her name! really knew her stuff and was attentive and courteous. The lunch was lovely in a nice restaurant. We would thoroughly this tour.
Everything was great, the tour guide was fantastic!!!
The trip was fantastic! Lucia was our guide for the am and the pm. She was knowledgeable about both sites.
