the trip was enjoyable and the tour guide Gus was very knowledgeable and entertaining.
Climbing Mt Vesuvius was one of my highlights of my trip. The tour is essentially a taxi service, but a very good one. We were picked up from Sorrento and driven to the Mt Vesuvius coach park, stopping along the way to collect other members of our group. There is commentary from the guide on the coach journey but once at Vesuvius the guide does not come with you, you are free to climb alone and the 10 euro ticket to climb is not included in the price of the tour. I was quite happy to go at my own pace and loved every second of this tour!
This tour was amazing!
Great half day tour very interesting and great views. definitely worth the money good tour
We had a small group of about 10 people on this trip which was ideal. The guide joined us on the climb to the crater we didn't realise how steep the climb would be so comfortable trainers and lots of water are a must! The guide arranged the Vesuvius tour guide once we got to the top of the mountain and allowed us to explore at our leisure once the talk was over. Definitely worth doing as part of a smaller group as opposed to a large excursion.
Good tour, very steep so no good if you have mobility problems. Did see two people at start hoping to take the kids up In A pushchair! Don't think that will have been possible. Only way to get to top is under your own steam!
Also I will point out that when we arrived we were told there were two toilets. In fact only one was open, and apprently it was disgusting, no running water or loo paper, so I didn't bother. Thought to use at decent, but then it was closed. So if you have problems with needing toilet, don't go, as there is nowhere discreet for you to take a pee.
Great experience but expected more information from tour guide on mt vesuvio. You're really just paying for return bus fare to the mountain as you have to pay seperately for entry into the grounds anyway.
Very enjoyable tour. Tour guide Vincenzo was very informative.
Recommend for you to list on your website "suggested attire" in order to be more prepared for this excursion. Wish we had known ahead of time, to wear hiking shoes and or simply closed sturdy walking shoes and wear layers of clothing to adapt to changing temperatures. Also think the guide should accompany the travelers on the walk to ensure they all get from start to finish. Viator should include the $10 euro to complete the hike within the cost , this is the most important aspect of seeing Mt Vesuvius should not be in addtion , just make a part of the overall fee. Lastly, we were more than a bit turned off at the workers that were charging euro to use a port -a -potty. Certainly did not leave a memorable impression of the excursion.
We got there but that is really all I can say.
