  • We started the trip climbing Mt. Vesuvius. It was quite a climb but well worth it. The view of Naples and the sea was breathtaking. The guide was well informed about Pompeii and we only had time for the highlights. The was two small pieces of pizza which was plain and soggy. A better lunch would have been nice.

  • We considered driving the Amalfi Coast but used a private tour instead. Alesandro picked us up at our Sorrento hotel and provided an incredible day. He was knowlegable about the area, suggesting things and places that we might enjoy. He was the very professional and alowed us to enjoy the day. Do it!

  • This was a well organised tour with a very funny and friendly guide. We obviously had to pick up quite a few people along the way so it took us a long time to get to Mount Vesuvius. We got allocated a long time to explore the Volcano, I would recommend a jumper and trainers. It was colder than we thought it would be! We had a nice little pizza lunch near Pompeii but I would bring cash for more refreshments as you are out all day. We were given headphones so we could hear our guide clearly which definitely helped as there were lots of groups as you can imagine. I felt we spent enough time looking around and it really is a fascinating place.

    I would definitely recommend, something not to be missed!

  • The guide was totally amazing ! Great experience ! I recommend it !

  • Everything promised in tour description was delivered.
    Mara is a great guide. Entertaining and engaging, making sure we were all together, accounted for and that our needs met or questions answered.
    Pompeii tour was informative and pretty standard: historical facts, recovery and restoration and plenty of photo opportunities.
    Lunch was 2 slices of pizza and water, but if you wanted to order more, you could without any issue-you just pay out of your own pocket. And we were not rushed out of there.
    Walk up to My Vesuvius was long and a difficult for me but do able. Spectacular views! Tour description, as a courtesy, should include that you wear proper hiking shoes, or at least closed-toe or sneakers.

  • Great small group tour with an excellent and friendly guide. A comfortable minibus takes you from Sorrento to as high as you can go by road on Mount Vesuvius there a walk to the top for everyone and also to parking opposite the entrance at Pompeii. You are guided round the main parts of Pompeii which is very informative.

  • Our guide was very knowledgeable. The hike to Mount Vesuvius was worth it.

  • This trip was very good, you get to tour 2 places in one day. Pompeii was great, if you like history, you get to see a city which was once covered in volcanic ash. Pompeii city is huge so you only see a section of it on this tour but is enough to see how people lived and died under the ash. There are casts made from the people that perished under the ash as they were at the time. Interesting but yet a little sad.
    Mount Vesuvius was adventurous, vehicles can only go part of the way up so you have to walk the last part to get to the top. The walk can take up to half an hour on a steep path. This may be difficult for elderly people but the view of the crater is immense and you get some nice views of Naples coat line

  • Great tour and excellent guide. Unfortunately there were young kids that cried non stop on the tour and took away from the day.

  • Pompeii is well worth a visit, to see and experience the history is amazing. Our local guide, Mara, was extremely knowledgeable and lead the excursion with a logical and steady pace giving everyone time to absorb the atmosphere. It's an extremely large site and busy so a guide is recommended.
