Book this tour for my mom and her husband, mid 70's. One of many, this one was also one of their favorite, they were met right on time. And really enjoyed the entire day. My mom climbed the mountain, she did say it was a bit of work and had to take breaks, her husband didn't. They appreciated how nice the staff was.
Guided tour of Pompeii/Vesuvius revue
If I could award 10 stars, I would! Our tour company and our guide, Dimitri, kept us amused, informed and on-schedule all the way to Vesuvius/Pompeii and back.
Dimitri was not only well informed, he managed to engage each person on the trip about 26 people? individually and to spend one-on-one time showing pictures, exchanging anecdotes and answering questions. I was beyond impressed, as what might have been a long and tedious bus trip was an absolute pleasure.
We were handed over to a specialist guide in Pompeii I am so sorry that I have forgotten his name! who was an expert in the history and archaeology of Pompeii he was absolutely brilliant and really brought the site to life.
As for Pompeii itself the experience was overwhelming. Even after having studied the history of the city in some detail over the years, nothing could have prepared me for the experience of actually walking the streets and seeing it in reality.
Out of interest, a friend who knew little about Pompeii joined us on the trip and was even more impressed if possible! than we were. He intends to use the same company for a revisit and for further tours in Rome.
So, overall, 10 gold stars!
Thoroughly enjoyed the guide and the tour - informative and fun! One of my favorite tours of our vacations.
Roberto is an excellent, entertaining guide. Thank you for a enriching tour. He explained scenery along the way with informative historical narratives. The tour of Pompeii was amazing. The traditional lunch was nice. The walk up Vesuvius is tiring, but totally worth the effort. The live volcano produces steam that can be seen easily. And the lava flow of the recent eruption can be seen along the way.
Wow! Having read both fiction and nonfiction accounts of the Vesuvius eruption and aftermath, this trip exceeded my expectations! Ahmid was a phenomenal tour guide, lots of information, assistance where needed, humor when appropriate. The bus was comfortable, the stopping point useful, but the tour of Pompeii and the climb on Vesuvius really made my whole trip it was my only excursion outside of Rome. Thanks!
This is a fantastic once in a lifetime kind of tour. I can't imagine having come out to Rome and not done it. Our guide John was amazing and does this tour 2 or 3 times a week so he knows it all backwards and forwards. In addition when in Pompeii they have a local expert who knows his stuff like a professor explaining everything. The hike up Vesuvias isn't easy if you aren't in okay shape, the air gets a little thin if you are pushing yourself. I think most people who are in moderate physical condition can do it without a problem as long as you pace yourself. The actual view into the volcano isn't that special but the views of Naples are fantastic. You also get really good Naple's pizza for lunch at a nice restaurant. I enjoyed the hike but my family's focus was on Pompeii and we really enjoyed what we learned.
Wonderful day. I highly recommend it. Many thanks to Emiliano for making the trip very memorable. Alberto did a great job driving!
Amazing day! Long but worth it!
Amazing! Tour guide was an expert and incredible amount of knowledge and funny. Went with my 2 teenage children and they loved it too!
Absolutely adored this tour.
Lovely guides, great atmosphere. Highly recommend.
