This was an amazing day. Could not fault anything.Thank you for a lovely memory.
Tour leaders and guides passionate, knowledgeable and very helpful.
Uma excelente escolha..Um tou muito bem organizado e com guias excelentes. Pode parecer um pouco cansativo mas vale a pena
Highly recommended! I loved the climb up Vesuvius. Pompeii is very cool, with many things you would expect in a modern city. Our Guide Mikaela was a lot of fun.
Inga and Alessandra were fantastic tour guides and made the trip so enjoyable. We took this tour the day before we left, otherwise I would have booked additional excursions and specifically requested them. Our party of six had a great time hiking up Mt. Vesuvius, visiting Pompeii and stopping for lunch in Naples for pizza. Recommend wearing tennis shoes for the hike. The bus was a very comfortable ride. Would highly recommend to anyone. One of our favorite tours while visiting Rome.
Absolutely loved it! I learnt so much in this one tour, saw so much, and gained some insight into Italy. I highly recommend this tour and the specific tour guides Kylie and Ahmed.
Take good walking shoes and if you are travelling in summer shelter your skin with long sleeved shirt or an umbrella there is limited shade in Pompeii.
We cannot recommend this tour highly enough. Not only did we a family of four, including our 8-year-old twin boys get to see the highlights of Pompeii in a two-hour informative guided tour, and a brilliant visit to the crater at the top of Vesuvius, but we were entertained and informed about Italian life, history and society by the brilliant, outstanding, kind and witty duo of Manuele and Chiara - our guides for the day - who took us all last Tuesday, 23 August. An unforgettable, wonderful day.
One of the best tour taken in Rome, our two tour guides Enrica and Peter, very informative made our tour fun and full of informations, descriptions and history.From Pompeii where we wore able to see most of the important sites to the Vesuvio it was the most interesting experience. Thank you to Enrica and Peter
for giving us a fun and pleasent tour.
Demetria was fantastic! We thoroughly enjoyed hiking up the mountain despite the rain and got great pictures. The tour of Pompeii was also very interesting and informative. Highly recommend.
This was an absolutely brilliant and memorable trip worth every penny. Peter, our Italian/ American guide, really knew his stuff and was great to chat to. The older Italian guide, Enrica, was nice and helpful. The bus driver, Paulo was a master driver negotiating the tricky traffic like a pro. The pizza was great, really nice to try a different style than what we had in Rome. Pompeii was incredible with an expert guide. Mt Vesuvius was stunning and Peter was great at the top filling us in on the views and just generally great. The history of the sites are incredible! The trip brings it alive in a pleasant way. Top marks!
Excellent guides in Chiara and Manuelle. They possess such knowlege of Rome and the area and entertained us on the journey. Linda our guide in Pompeii was just as knowledgeable about The city and did her absolute best and got us through the very crowded streets and buildings. An excellent tour, well organised and super guides.
The day was awesome, and our guides Manuel and Maria I think their names are were fantastic. I'd been to Rome and Pompeii before, and wish I'd had the same sort of knowledge and personalities giving a tour the first time. I would definitely recommend the tour.

The highlight of my stay in Rome last week, picked this tour and glad I did, did not disappoint and definitely worth the money. Our tour guide Mikeala from City wonder tours was brilliant, she fed us with knowledge about the history of Pompeii and Vesuvius through out the day and looked after us all. She made this trip very fun and exciting with her amusing personality. The day was very long but the views from the air conditioned coach made it worth while, they were breathtaking. This tour will not disappoint you. I thoroughly enjoyed it and would pick it again .
This is one of my favorites! However, the train was sold out, so at least got to return to this area by train for the Amalfi tour. Mara and Melanie were fantastic! great team. They were very knowledgeable, positive and funny, yet told us so much on the bus ride down. They both gave us some extra tips too for places to eat and visit. Appreciate that, since we got lost enuf on our own in our travels! : Thanks Mara for the tip to the bakery in the Jewish ghetto! great place. Hope to see you all again very soon, for there was so much more to see, and want to do the Italian countryside, and maybe learn a little Italian. What a wonderful place to behold. Thank you, Jean
Wonderful trip - wonderful experience. Windy on Vesuvius, my new glasses went flying into the crater. Guess that cant be blamed on the guide though
My husband and I took the trip on the 14th Of August 2016, a Sunday. Excellent trip well organised and well executed by our lovely highly learned guide Ms Kylie. The credit for making the trip a complete success goes entirely to her. She was very disciplined and well organised and gave us plenty of information on history of Rome right from the Trojan war all along the journey. After our visit to Pompeii we had a good lunch which was a big pizza we could choose one from 3 different types and a drink of our choice included in the package. On our way to the Vesuvius, Kylie told us about the history of Vesuvius and the magma chamber beneath it and how the region around the mountain is divided into zones depending on the risk level and the government emergency plan in the event of any future eruption. She explained how the story of the eruption in 79AD was learned from eyewitness account of Pliny the younger and spoke about the two Plinys and reconstructed the entire event that lead to burying of Herculeum and Pompeii under the pyroclastic flow. She was very energetic too and accompanied us to the top of the Vesuvius without showing any sign of fatigue. She helped us spot the steam that was still coming out of crater walls and pointed out to Pompeii and the various islands like Capri,Ischia from the top of the Vesuvius. she also pointed to the path traced out on the mountains by lava that came from the last eruption in 1944. On our way back, she gave us lot of useful tips for tourists travelling and places that we must visit in Rome. She was a very kind person and helpful and very jovial. The guide in Pompeii however paled in comparison to her. He was good but when you have listened to Kylie narrate then you feel that he could have been better. Pompeii is a must visit to know how the people lived and made such great planned cities with facilities that make us wonder why was nature so cruel to such a great cultured society.
Fantastic tour. Both guides Chiara and Jonathon were so knowlegeble and entertaining. It was both relaxing and insightful, and although we didn't get to climb mount Vesuvius, the naples museum was a great alternative. Would highly recommend this tour and especially with these two guides, they were first class, so helpful and funny too
This was an amazing trip. The tour guides Mara especially were incredibly knowledgeable and friendly. We learned so much and go to see so much. This was one of my favorite experiences during my entire vacation. The only thing I would suggest...the timelines for climbing Mt. Vesuvius are not realistic. They say that it should take 20 minutes to get to checkpoint 1, 5 minutes to checkpoint 2, and 5 minutes to get to checkpoint 3. This is only possible if you are well-trained athlete. Since they only give you 75 minutes to do the entire thing, most people will not have enough time to get to the top and then get back down in time. Please consider extending this by another 15-20 minutes. It is well worth it.
Amazing tour guide, enthusiastic and humorous. We had a lot of fun hiking up the Mt. Vesuvius, I made the hike with Birkenstocks but I would probably suggest some sneakers for next time. Pompeii was fascinating, our tour guide was extremely knowledgeable and enthusiastic as well. Highly recommend!
The guides were articulate, knowledgeable, and went the extra mile to be helpful on a personal basis.
This trip was great! Definitely a must do! The city wonders company were really good at organising us and took very good care of us. They also gave us lots of info on Rome and answered any questions we had even though they didn't have to do that. It was a very long hot day though so bring an umbrella, shades, water etc
The tour guides Michella and Alessandra were great, as the whole trip.
