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.
We enjoyed the tour very much and our guide Nello was very informative and funny at the same time! Very highly recommended.
very good tour good guide very informative on the surrounding area and at pompeii and vesuvius would recommend the tour
I recommend taking a tour to go to Pompeii and Mt Vesuvius.
I enjoyed my day over there and the guide was awesome.
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.
This tour was outstanding! Guide was funny and very informative! Really enjoyed this trip!
This was an excellent day. Driver was about 20 minutes late picking us up but it was apparently due to traffic. Tour of Pompeii was great - then a fixed lunch at Tiberius Restaurant was terrific. We then went to Vesuvius where we had the chance to climb - not as easy as we thought but definitely an experience of a lifetime! So worth the wait!!

Five stars for Pompeii, no stars for Vesuvius for it started to rain at the end of Pompeii, continuing through lunch, so by the time we started to drive up the mountain, it was closed due to fog and dangerous conditions. Disappointed but, it's nature! Our Pompeii guide was excellent!
A MUST DO!! Standing in the Buried City of Pompeii will leave you jaw dropping aw! To be standing there after knowing what transpired there way back in 79AD WOW!! We climbed Mt Vesuvius after an excellent lunch deal our amazing guide hooked our whole group up with. Mind climbing the Volcano is no easy feat, its quite difficult to tell you the truth but if the 91 year old lady in our group can do it - than so can you.
Just wanted to give feedback on this tour - very well organised and informative the guide Christine was exceptionally good making the whole day very enjoyable, I would recommend booking with victor and if you are doing a Sorrento trip hope to get Christine as she has a vast amount of knowledge on the area and shares it in a interesting and clear way, thank you for a memorable day.
Nello was a great guide. Pompei fascinating. Many added extras that you have to pay for. Vesuvius walk was good but I wouldn't spend the money again if it was cloudy, as it was on the way we went.
Excellent trip, pickup was at 8:22amvery precise but coach arrived at exactly 8:22. Great guide, we all kept in touch with radios which meant we could spread out a bit. Pompeii was fascinating, helped by good explanations of the events and description of the various buildings
Excellent guide. Very hot and lots to see. Would go solo next time. Lunch was great. Vesuvius was more than fantastic.
This is a really interesting tour, our guide was very knowledgeable with plenty of anecdotes about the area as a whole.
We were picked up and dropped of outside our hotel door, given a fantastic walking tour of Pompeii and driven to almost the top of Vesuvius. We opted to walk to the top and that was well worth the extra effort and 10 euro.
Highly recommended for a great day out.
Had a wonderful time - our guide was really really nice, informative, and entertaining. Would go again. Thanks again for you company's consideration.
Tour guide fantastic...bus driver fantastic...possibly an hour too long but can't control traffic etc.... memorable...thanks
Tour of Pompeii was very good, but we didn't get to see too many of the preserved remains...most are at the museum in Naples. This is definitely a highlights tour of Pompeii and we were a little disappointed we didn't get to see more. The climb up Mt Vesuvius is steep and took about 20-25 minutes, but worth it. Our guide was very knowledgable, but we were on a German and English tour so it was a little hard to focus on what she was saying at times - we would tune out when she was speaking German and then all of a sudden, she would be speaking in English again and we would miss some of what she said.
Enjoyed this tour. Was paced just about right. Did the climb to Vesuvius in the morning then had lunch the did Pompeii. The guide was good although I thought I had booked an English tour we had German people on the tour so she had to keep saying everything in English then repeating it in German.
A very well organised tour with knowledgeable and friendly guides. Well worth visiting!
