    This was a last minute booking, the booking company kept in touch regarding pick up. The driver was friendly and professional. At Pomeii, the guide was very informative and kept the tour interesting for all ages . Great experience !!

    This tour is too expensive. Group too big. Too long spent in non important areas of Pompeii. No free time to explore Pompeii at the end of the tour.

    Meeting new people, exploring the city’s culture and history. Very informative tour guide. Gorgeous day to visit.

    Pompeii had been a bucket list item for many years and was finally fulfilled by this excellent guided tour. On arrival and departure, it all seemed a little chaotic, but there was a clear method in the madness and all was fine. Pickup from my hotel in Sorrento was perfect. After a little while on the tour you begin to realize just what an enormous site Pompeii is and on this tour we only saw a fraction of what was on offer, but what we saw was amazing. The streets are clearly laid out and very long. Cast your mind back and you can imagine how busy and vibrant it must have been in those days long ago. We did the tour in early October and it was perfect. There is very little cover from the sun, so doing the tour in the summer months, would probably be uncomfortable for many.

    Excellent tour guide Maria in Pompeii. The guided tour was excellent Maria was very knowledgeable and witty. Our driver was polite and courteous. The only downside was the very uncomfortable mini bus we were cramped in like sardines. No leg room whatsoever. I’m only 5’4” and struggled to fit my legs in the space never mind my six foot hubby. Had we not booked another trip I. A very spacious mini bus for the next day we would have thought this was the norm

    It was worth it to walk through the city ruins and our guide was very knowledgeable. The audio devices we were given need to be upgraded. The sound on them was not good and there was a lot of white noise.

    Excellent history lesson. Worth the time and money. Our guide was excellent with her knowledge and keeping her group together

    Ensure you wear comfortable shoes, old Roman roads and cobbles to walk over. Not really suitable for wheelchair users. My husband had to help carry a wheelchair over cobbles to flatter ground. But an amazing place to see, learning how they used to live.

    The pick up was convenient and easy. Our Pompeii guide, Maria, was excellent. A spirited storyteller who explained in detail what life was like in AD 70. The pizza lunch was nice. The hike at Vesuvius was too inclined for my 75 yr old dad, so he waited for me at the cafe while I hiked to the top. Overall, a fantastic day. I highly recommend.

    Amazing place. Our tour guide herself was great but the size of our group (more than 30 people!) coupled with barely-working headsets made it a little challenging to follow along.
