What people are saying about Mount Vesuvius

An easy alternative to Pompeii. Get the picture without the crowds.

Chose Herculaneum on advise as my partner has mobility and breathing difficulties. Bought Fast track tickets to avoid queues at entrance.... but not required when we got there about noon. Easy to reach from Sorrento by public train €5.80 return followed by a short downhill walk to the site. Entrance through pleasant visitors centre with toilets. Gentle downhill path provides good views and photo opps. The actual excavations are fairly compact and hired audio guides seemed very popular (€8 each/€13 for 2). Clearly not an easy walk for anyone with more than very minor mobility issues but it's not a seafront promenade. Whilst not the scale or variety of its big brother, Pompeii, no crowds. Refreshments are available by auto vending machines along with more toilets close to excavations. Overall well worth the visit to get the experience... nice views across to Vesuvius... which makes you think... what if?? We got a taxi back up the hill to station €10, overpriced... yes, but essential...

Well worth the money for everything you get ! Staff are very welcoming

This was a great tour that was well worth the money for what you get to see . Teresa and Jaco were wonderful guides . They let us stop several places for pictures and knew a lot about the history of Amalfi. The coast is gorgeous just like a post card . You don't want to miss these views . They pick you up and drop you off and you get lunch . Teresa was so kind and helpful . I really appreciate her knowledge and was impressed that she knew three languages . She did an excellent job translating for everyone . World Tours is a great company and we loved our experience with them . Jaco was a excellent driver ! We were in some very tight spots and he was able to manage getting around big busses and other groups. The only thing I wish we would have know is that we would get some free time at the beach So we could swim but it was still a nice time to unwind and take beautiful photos . I would definitely use this tour group again . Thanks so much for your help and knowledge.

Vesuvius and Pompeii - be ready for a full on busy day

I have previously visited Vesuvius and Pompeii on a school trip many years ago. Was visiting Rome with my daughter and wanted to take her to these attractions without doing a twin centre holiday. Booked very easily on line and very efficient service with no problems at all. Mikaela B was our tour guide, spoke excellent English, very informative, organised and hard working. The negatives? Probably too much for one day, straight up Vesuvius, couple of photos and straight back down the mountain. Disappointed with Pompeii as we only had two hours there and I saw less than I had all those years ago with school, which is a shame as much more has been discovered since my last trip. However, my daughter enjoyed the day and that's what mattered.

Naples and Pompeii Rewind, A Must Before You Die

I travel very often as an international scholar, graduate student and a global traveler. This is one of the best and most reasonable rate anyone can have for what it had to offer. I’ve been to Naples a couple of times but having Sylvia and Bruno of GYG. Com handle your trip made it the best for us. I was able to see and understand the Pompeii Event, enjoyed the food, people and landmarks of Naples...with every detail going back several thousand years. I highly recommend this contractor to anyone and if you haven’t seen Naples, call them and enjoy this place before you go to your box! No offense to the “box” was trying to emphasize a point!

Efficient enjoyable coverage of a vast area

Ordering pick up and experience of the tour was very efficient. The only feedback I have is that I would like to have known the end of day drop off points so I could plan our evening return to our apartment but one of the stops being Termini station was helpful. Ivan was a steady and pleasant guide with good knowledge of the topics we were touring. Headsets were good and clear. Food was AMAZING at Carlos Pizza restaurant in Napoli. Very nicely done lunch for such a large group from many countries. Thank you!
