Really enjoyed the tour of Pompeii. So many sites to see and so much history to contemplate. Our guide made the tour even more interesting with her insights and anecdotes. Could never have understood the full impact of all the events without the tour.

This was the best tour I have ever taken! The driver picked us up on time in a nice vehicle. The tour guide was very interesting and did a great job explaining the events of Pompeii. We were then returned to our hotel. I think it was a great price for such a great tour!

Our tour guide was knowledgeable, funny and considerate. We were fortunate enough to see one of the body casts. Apparently, they are being restored and all the others were not available for viewing.

Pick up and drop off went smoothly. Definitely recommend skip the line options at busy attractions.
