The Easy way to experience Pompeii and Vesuvius if you want a comfortable door to door tour. The clean modern mini bus was on time with a sensible driver. The group was only six on this day although we joined seven others for the Pompeii tour with an experienced knowledgeable local guide. All the entry fees were included as was a delicious pizza lunch. There was some confusion over the “wine tasting” which others in the group did get. We thought this was a separate experience on the way home but it turned out to be three tiny tastes with a different three course lunch selection. We thought we had had the best of it as the Vesuvius walk would have been even harder with the big lunch. On our way home our happy bus group sang along to some opera then listened to our guides band singing their own compositions (they were very good) A great choice of provider for this tour for those looking for a well organised day. Thank you Matti (guide) and Jacamo (driver) .
From pick up to drop off, the guides were incredibly thorough and well organised. I received a message from the guides the day before with meeting point details. We were picked up, taking on a ferry (not the nicest ferry but it got us there) and dropped off at the port in Capri. The guides walked us to the bus which was air conditioned and told us a little history of the island as we went to our first stop. All guides we're very lovely, informative and organised throughout the whole day. We saw the best little bits of the island and came back with our stomachs full and satisfied with a day of sun, boats and shopping. Would highly recommend for anyone who just wants to see a glimpse of the island from the sky and the sea.
My mother and I decided to travel to all 3 places in 1 day as we only had a short trip to Naples. Mario the driver and Walter the guide were extremely open and friendly as soon as we entered the bus. They made us feel welcome and accommodated for any difficulties we had. Walter had a fantastic knowledge of the places we visited and executed this amazingly in not only English, but Italian and Spanish too! Mario the driver astounded the whole bus with his fantastic manouvers and patience on the windy roads whilst driving round the mountains. I wish to meet them both again because it was Mario and Walter that really made the trip worthwile and unforgettable. Bellisimo!
The bus was colecting people from hotels for a while and only arrived to Pompei at around 11 am, where an English speaking guide showed us the hotspots of the archeologic site, for about 2 hours. We then had a reasonable lunch (pizza, lasagna or tomato spagetti) at a restaurant nearby. The climb to Mt Vesuvius started at 3 pm, when it was 35 degrees Celsius; although it’s only 200 mts, it was really difficult. Therefore, my only suggestion would be to start collecting people one hour before, at 08.30, then proceed to Mt Vesuvius and Pompeii after lunch.
Chiara was an exceptional tour guide, we loved her! She was humorous, personable, and had many, many interesting facts about the history of Italy and the geographical significance of the regions. She shared her love of Italy with us and gave us insider information on what locals in Rome like to do. I could have walked Pompeii for 4 hours! Our guide, Arianna, was highly educated on the history and facts of the city. She was protective of us as a group and took us to see the best parts of the massive ruins. This is a Must Do with City Wonders tours!
