Our tour started off with easy and on time pick up from our hotel in Sorrento. We had just enough time touring Pompeii and a fantastic guide that really made the history come alive! We were back to the hotel in the early afternoon which allowed us to explore Sorrento for the rest of the day. I highly recommend this tour!

Well organized. Confirmed pick up time via email day before. Tour guide was full of great information and was fun as well. Pompeii was more than I ever expected. The scale is unbelievable and the many details are still intact. Wear supportive shoes because the walkways are original and uneven. I saw several people fall.

The tour guide was very knowledgeable with her history of Pompeii and was very entertaining. Pompeii is beautiful but it and #39;s a long walking tour.

This is just a great tour for families especially if you have young kids. It's short and to the point -- for kids that's just what they like. Makes it easier for parents too. Our guide was outstanding. She spoke slow and clear. I could understand and follow every word she said. She took her time and did not rush. It was one of the most informative tours I've ever been on. You will come away having learned a lot. Enjoy
