This was a wonderful tour. It was 6 hours out in the sun though, so be careful in the heat of summer!

The tour and Tour Guides were excellent. Our driver was well versed, funny and very accommodating. The Guide around Pompeii was superb and brought the place back to life for us. The only down side was, whilst we were told entrance fees and lunch weren't included, I think they should let you know that you will need an extra 23 euro per person for entrance fees and and an additional 28 euro per person should your party wish to stay for lunch at the Vineyard. I only say this as one couple in our group didn't carry enough cash with them to enable them to do all three additional items but, fortunately they did carry a credit card and therefore could pay for their lunch at the Vineyard that way, other wise none of the group would have been able to go for the lunch at the Vineyard. As I say though this was our only criticism. We had an absolutely amazing day and the view at the top of Vesuvius is something we will always treasure.

It was a wonderful tour, even though it POURED when we were touring Pompeii. Our tour guide, Roberto, was very knowledgeable and entertaining. Loved seeing the top of Mt. Vesuvius--such an iconic place.

This was a fantastic tour. There were only 5 people including myself and the other 4 people were spanish so the poor tour guide had to speak spanish to them and then english to me but that was not a problem. Our pompeii tour guide was fantastic and the 2 hours flew by.

The only critic I have is the advertisement of the 4X4. Through reading reviews I had noticed they were not using 4x4's but a van. I had to reach out to the company and directly ask them and they confirmed due to a fire that a van is used instead. Personally as a consumer I should not have to reach out and ask these questions - the advertisement should read the actual title as I choose this tour over others because of the 4x4. Due to being end of season I had to keep the reservation but no discount was given to which I think should be. The next bookings are from March 2018 so contact the company beforehand to check the 4x4's are operational.

Overall the tour of Pompeii was great! The guide was informative and entertaining, even suggested a great little winery to stop at for lunch. The ruins are a must see if you're in the Naples area! We were slightly disappointed in that we got placed in a small van vs. the 4x4 for Mt. Vesuvius. However, the walk up/down to the volcano was fun and the sights on the trail were amazing. Both Pompeii and Vesuvius are must do's in Southern Italy and this tour was a plus during that adventure.

I had a wonderful time on this tour. They offered hotel pick-up, the driver was very nice and I really liked our tour guide, who could be a bit comical at times. It was very hot on the day we went, but the guide managed to keep us out of the sun most of the tour and still saw some amazing stuff. The guide spoke English and was very informative and the group for the tour was small, which was nice. The 4x4 portion of the tour, of Mt. Vesuvius was cancelled due to wildfires, I was a bit bummed about that, but that was out of their control.

Only issue with the tour was we were combined with another group for the tour of Pompei 40 plus so this made it hard for the guided tour and comentry other than that all went to plan good rep and drivers

Excelled tour. Encouraged to have lunch which included wine tasting at additional cost. Not sure what you would do if you chose not to participate but so glad we did. Great food and great wine. Everything went according to plan and seamless.
