Very good tour, well organised, punctual pick up and friendly tour guide and driver. Lucca the tour guide was good humoured and very passionate about Pompeii, his commentary and description of the ancient city was very informative. The tour gave a good summary of the history of the city and the lives of the people living in Pompeii at the time. This tour is a very good way to see Pompeii and also reach the summit of Mt Versuvius.

Excellent tour! The guide was italian and very fun. She made the tour interesting, walking us through the ruins of Pompeii without a guide, it would be a really difficult task not to get lost!. After that, we stopped for lunch and then headed to Mount Vesuvius, where we climbed the initially very steep 800 meters to the crater which I found a bit... small or unimpressive, to tell you the truth. The tour was absolutely worth doing great half-day activity!

Wonderful experience to see the Pompeii site with a knowledgeable guide. Pina was patient and humorous. We also climbed to the top of Vesuvius which was great. Bistro made the booking experience very easy.

Our guide Pepe was marvellous, right from the start of the trip he gave us local information from the history of the area to naming what plants and trees we could see. When we arrived at Pompeii we had quite a wait for entrance tickets,11 which you have to purchase individually. The trip doesn't include entrance fees but it would save a lot of wasted time if the guide could buy them on our behalf. It is worth mentioning that under 18s and over 65 go free and 18- 24s are half price so take some ID. Pepe gave us a guided tour of the site taking us to the most important points of interest. We all had ear pieces so we could hear everything he said even if we had separated. You really get a feeling of what a Roman town was like walking around. After the tour we stopped for lunch with an optional meal, but at only 13 was good value.
Afterwards we made the journey up to Vesuvius, here Pepe was able to purchase our entrance tickets 10 and we were left to make our own way up to the crater. It's a difficult trek but worth it. The day ended being dropped back to our hotel. Overall it was a wonderful experience. I would definitely recommend this trip.
