What people are saying about House of Menander

Amazing experience, bus tour guide was very friendly and picked us up on time. Had an on route brief sightseeing tour to Pompeii, tour guide in Pompeii was incredible so knowledgeable and made sure all the group were together at all times. And lastly mount Vesuvius wow what an adventure! Make sure you wear a comfy pair of shoes the last 280 to the summit is not for the weak. The Bus driver was honestly the best driver I have ever seen and the food can’t forget the food at the foot of Vesuvius so amazing. The overall trip in my opinion is hugely underpriced for what you get and would encourage anyone thinking about it to do it and I can promise you, you will not forget it
