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.

Full day boat trip to Capri from Sorrento

We got picked up from our hotel promptly on the day (got a confirmation e-mail the day before) and driven to Marina Grande, where we got checked in and boarded our boat - 18 footer. It was 12 of us altogether. Our skipper Marino was great and provided commentary throughout the trip which started with a visit to Grotta Azura where we had to wait for a bout 30-40 minutes because of congestion, but it was an amazing experience once we got inside the cave. Then we got to Capri for 3.5 of sightseeing (company can arrange transport for those who wish). In the afternoon we completed our tour around the island and saw the ret of the grottoes, swam in the crystal waters, and enjoyed complimentary drinks (soft+beer), snacks, champagne and limoncello, before returning to Sorrento. They also provide towels and packed lunch (tomato and mozzarella ciabatta). A most enjoyable trip.

A great city tour on top of the food experience

Gianpaulo was a great guide, super nice and informative throughout the tour. He was on time, took some cool pictures of the family with a polaroid, and we went to many really good spots. Highlights were the fish market, we got to try some new fried seafood items, the pasta restaurant Tandem had fantastic ragu, the Aperol spritzes were great and the desert stop was also very good. The only disappointing stop was that the pizza selection was not good, we went to the famous street with the best pizza places, and would have gladly waited in line for it, but we went to a not-so-good spot just down the street that had no line (perhaps that's why they didn't have a line). All in all, we had a great time and Gianpaulo was a fantastic guide and host.

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.
