Fantastic trip to see mt Vesuvius, so interesting. Lovely lunch and wine tasting. I would go on this trip again.
We thoroughly enjoyed this tour. The guide was excellent very informative and communicated clearly in English. The first part was the hike up the mountain and was quite an adventure. The second part was a lunch at a local winery food and wine were delicious.
Great hike up to Vesuvius really knowledgeable guide. Wine tasting a nice extra.
I highly recommend this tour!! My mom and I had a blast.
This tour was probably the highlight of our stay in Sorrento. Sasa was an excellent guide - friendly, comical, thorough, prepared and accommodating of everyone in our group. This trip is not for those faint at heart. The trip up Vesuvius in the 4x4 is quite an adventure it can be turbulent. Another reviewer posted think in terms of a Jurassic park bus that was 100 accurate. The hike from the drop off point to the top is a fair bit of exercise but significantly less than if you were to go it alone and make the trip without the 4x4 excursion. Apparently, there are two entrances and two paths up the volcano one for hikers only the general public so to speak and the other path for those brought up by the 4x4 trucks. The money spent on the 4x4 alone was worth it I was happy to have my hiking cut in half. Wear good shoes ie. not sandals or any fashionable shoes you might not want filthy by the end of the day. The hike up is sandy and dirty. And should you decide to do it on your own start early in the day, it gets hot! The winery lunch and tour was a great addition friendly people, great food. We thoroughly enjoyed our day it was worth every dollar.
So much fun! What a great way to see Mt Vesuvius. The lunch and wine tasting was amazing too. Just a note... the 4x4 is a bus transport but it still was great!
This tour was fantastic, I had such a great day! The pick up was on time, the driver was great and our guide Pasquale was excellent. The drive up to Mt Vesuvius took a little llonger due to some traffic works but our guide kept us entertained with much knowledge of region which was fantastic. Once at Mt Vesuvis we then got a fun ride to the top in the 4x4 trucks. At the top of the volcano it was amazing , great view even though it was quite cloudy. For me the highlight was the lunch and wine, everything was so delicious, great to experience so much delicious food all grown nd produced in the area and such beautiful location. I would 100 recommend this tour if you want a great day of adventure and great food of the region aswel.
A relaxed drive to the location then an easy transfer to the 4x4 - rather larger than my Land Rover Discovery!! Fun drive almost to the crater rim. Then a walk up to the rim which my wife was able to do even thought she had a significant operation 3 weeks before. Wonderful view of the volcano rim and crater, together with the view of the surrounding countryside. A tasty meal followed with a good sampling of local wines. An enjoyable day out with an excellent guide.
This was an amazing experience with our tour guide, Raffi. Things to know: a 4x4 is not as I assumed an ATV, but rather a Jurassic Park-esque army bus with wild suspension and rough and tumble look. The ride up the side of Vesuvius is fast, turbulent, and a little stomach-churning. A once-in-a-lifetime experience. Once the busses can no longer drive, everyone disembarks and hikes the rest of the journey. Prepare for weather- we were there in early September, but on an overcast day. It was cold, and windy! I was glad to have a sweatshirt. I have heard the opposite, that on very sunny days it feels as though you're being fried! Wear good walking shoes, the hike is steep! The second half of the excursion, lunch and wine tasting, was fabulous. Great food and portions, and great wine! Super hospitable family vineyard that we were happy to support. Definitely takes the majority of your day, but well worth it. Highly recommend!
