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.

A fantastic experience that’s well worth the time away from Rome!

We thoroughly enjoyed our day trip to Pompeii and Mount Vesuvius. Our guide, Robert was FANTASTIC! The man deserves a promotion. He was both incredibly animated and still very thorough when giving his knowledge on the history of Pompeii and Mount Vesuvius. Robert is hands down, an expert archeologists/geologist who truly loves what he does. Taking a full day to leave the hustle and bustle of Rome was just what we needed. The skip-the-line feature didn’t feel like a gimmick like other attractions had made us feel in Rome because you’re with your guide and local guides through the entire process. The day was scheduled to a “T” and we felt we had just enough time to see everything we needed to see. Lunch was included which was perfect for the occasion- traditional Neapolitan pizza! Robert even offered us a great history lesson on the pizza which helped us make the definitive answer- “which pizza should I have?” We couldn’t have asked for a better experience!

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.

Fantastic day, great tour guide. Would recommend.

This was a last minute idea for us and we managed to get a tour booked for the following day. The instructions were clear on the email, although it said we would be contacted within 24 hours of our booking to confirm the pick up location, and in fact we had to call their office to confirm the pick up location and time. This was an easy process though, with multi-lingual phone agents available. The trip itself was very well organised from start to finish, and the tour guide was brilliant. She was very funny and very informative. Pompeii was great, and our tour guide was very knowledgeable. Mount Vesuvius was equally as great, although when we got to the crater, the rain clouds came over which spoilt the view! Overall, a fantastic day out which was organised brilliantly. Would definitely recommend this trip to anyone.

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.
