What people are saying about Campania

Worth it for a carefree, well organized day tour

I would definitely recommend the tour to people interested in experiencing a carefree excursion while visiting a historic place. Our pick-up meeting point was just down the street from our accommodation, so there was no stress of figuring out how to get there in the morning. Elisa, our guide to Pompeii, was very professional, multilingual and seemed to have a lot of experience. After Pompeii we had lunch at the cafeteria, where we could chose between 3 dishes (pasta, pizza or lasagna), which was perfectly fine, especially because u wouldn’t want to have a heavy three course meal before walking up the path to Mt. Vesuvius in Italy’s August heat. Last but not least I’d like to mention our bus driver Guiseppe who showed perfect driving skills maneuvering the bus up the winding streets to Mt. Vesuvius. Of course one should be aware that the path up Mt. V. itself is less a hiking experience than a walk up to the crater, leaving u nevertheless with beautiful& impressive views over Naples.

Pompeii was 5* awesome, Vesuvius not so much 2*

I'll start with the Great! Our Pompeii guide, Elisa, was absolutely the best! Super informative and told great stories about the city and brought it to life throughout the tour. Could not have asked for a better Pompeii experience. She earned 5+ stars every bit. ... now to the other ... Mt. Vesuvius experience was a 2 star. Our guide, I forgot her name, was just bad - it wasn't even clear she was a guide until she started talking about halfway through the trip to Vesuvius - then she made bad jokes about the driver. At the mountain, she just said "bye, see you when you get back" from hiking up and taking our own tour with guides that are at the mountain itself. It was such a short amount of time that by the time you actually did the full hike, you had to almost run down to get back on time. Tip: the hike up Vesuvius is not very fun, loose gravel is tough to climb and then also rough on your knees and ankles coming down, very unsteady footing.

Perfect guidance with clear, competent and comprehensiv informations

Our guide Luciano Leone fulfilled our expectations completely. As empassionated archeologist working in Herculaneum he knew all about this site from his profession. Very polite to seniors, friendly to children and adults showing us additional illustrations and photographs! Luciano gave easy to understand explanations to all relevant topics like the eruption of the Vulkano Vesuv, the life of the ancient inhabitants of Herculaneum, former buiding architecture, paintings and many more. We were totally confinced having choosen the right provider and had a great day at Herculaneum.

Great trip to Pompei and Mount Vesuvius, but should start earlier

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.

Anna is super nice and friendly . Antonio is very knowledgeable .

Anna is really nice . Bus driver was very good . Lunch was delicious We learned a lot . The only thing is : it is hard to walk after having lunch . I wish we had a little More time in the mountain . Now I booked this activity because it was advertised as for small groups . Although we travel In small groups we combined with other people after arriving to Pompeii . Wish we would have kept the group small . It saves a lot of time .
