  • This was actually our favorite day trip while we were in Italy. Salerno was a nice stop off, and Paestum was very interesting we had the right amount of time in the ruins and the museum. I would highly recommend this to anyone using Sorrento or Naples as a base for exploring the area. Although Paestum is quite a bit further South than either of these locations, the ride was scenic and relaxing. The tour provided a little taste of Greek history, and the guide was very good. Be sure to read up on the history of the area and its multi-cultural influences before the trip.

  • Excellent trip one of the best/ most knowledgeable tour guides I've ever had

  • These ruins are magnificent!

  • We enjoyed our tour, but didn't really like our tour guide. She seemed lazy and couldn't be bothered to get off her butt to come down to the back of the bus to. Chat with us . This frustrated us and made us uncomfortable to ask questions.Sometimes these tours need to hire new young energetic staff. That could potentially make the tour more enjoyable

  • Left Salerno too quickly. Should have divided the time equally between the two places.

  • Paestum is really off the beaten path when it comes to historic sites in Italy. That may be starting to change as the area around the historic site is becoming more built up. Christine, the tour guide, is immensely knowledgeable and has so many fascinating things to share along the drive and at the sites in both Salerno and Paestum. In Salerno you have the option of continuing the tour into the cathedral of simply spending the time on your own in the city. Getting to Salerno and Paestum from Sorrento takes a fair amount of time. There is a lunch break and the food was very good. If you're a history buff then you'll really like this, if not then you'll probably be bored. If you're somewhere in between then I'd say give it a shot. If nothing else, it is unique and not a place that many tourists visit.

  • Great trip. Paestum is a wonderful site. We had a very good tour host.

  • The day started out badly with the door falling off the bus. However, they were able to get us new (unfortunately smaller) bus quickly. The tour guide was very knowledgeable.

  • An excellent guide who shared her knowledge and organised the day very capably. Only quibble would be that the day was not longer so as to allow more time at Paestum, however good value for money and well worth doing.

  • Definitely visit Paestum - the site is fantastic. Only gave three stars because of the wider tour. after a farcical start where the door ! fell off the bus, we drove for two hours before stopping at salerno. After three hours an extra hour spent on pick ups and having to eventually swap buses you might have thought we'd be directed to a bathroom. Oh no. we were given 50 mins over half of which were spent being route marched to the cathedral and lectured at by the guide and the horrible radio controlled walkie talkies we were told to carry with us. No chance to explore the water front of salerno arguably it's finest part. No real direction of finding somewher useful for the bathroom.
    Another hour on the bus and we arrived at the site. A good 90 minutes spent able to walk around three fantastic temples and the wider graeco roman town. Could have spent longer on the site, had the usual songly recommend you eat lunch here malarkey.
    My issue was the guide. He didn't stop talking. He didn't measure his commentary. There was no respite. There is only so much people can take in. And he didn't provide the key facts, like when and where to meet, unti the very last second. I eventually broke away from the tour and just relished a fantastic site in the quiet.
    I'd do the trip again but with a different company.
