Amazing tour! Tour started on time from Piazza del Popolo. Note: come on time as for the tour guide is realy hard to count and organise all in last minute. We had a short stop on half way from Rome to Pompei in caffe restaurant with a view to Monte Casino hill. In Pompei you're on your own that on one way is good as you have 3h of your free time but I regret that I haven't took on site official guide. Why? We'll in certain moments we were just walking around with no idea where we are or what we are looking. Official guide will show you what you need. Angela was our tour guide who was really great and healpful but her main task was to take us to Pompei and back to Rome. On site she wasn't official guide. This was only minus on this tour but since Pompei are fantastic I still rate this 5. Also after Pompei we we're supposed to go directly on top of Mount Vesuv but due to Vesuc national park idiots we didn't get our tickets. We could only walk 200m below too see a view towards Pompei.
Absolutely loved this tour. We took at bus out to Pompeii where we were given tickets to enter and walk around on your own. There was plenty of time to see everything and our tour guide gave us a map with some key spots to check out. I would recommend getting an audio guide if you're able to. Our tour guide did provide some basic info prior to entering, but since it is not a guided tour inside, we would have liked more information at various points. Overall we still had a great time seeing all of the ruins. There is a good restaurant outside the ruins that you can buy food at prior to boarding the bus to go to Mt. Vesuvius. Mt. Vesuvius was also a neat experience. Be prepared to walk up a steep hill. I would consider us active and fit and it took us about 15-20 minutes to get to the top and we were huffing and puffing! So be prepared for a good workout! But the views are spectacular and you can say then say you were at the top of an active volcano!
We were lucky enough to be accompanied by Anna and Marius on our tour to Pompeii and Vesuvius. Anna was a fantastic tour guide, she provided us with so much information but in a very relaxed and casual manner. Marius navigated the tricky roads of Vesuvius like a gladiator, while we relaxed over the views of Naples & Sorrento. Would highly recommend to anyone and everyone I know!
Trip was excellent! Angela and Alessandro were incredibly knowledgeable and made the trip a breeze. The bus driver Gianni demonstrated excellent maneuvering skills even around the most careless of drivers. Only thing to criticize would be not having a bathroom on the bus. Otherwise, excellent!
Excellent tour there’s a lot of walking as Pompeii is a lot bigger than I expected. My 9 year old enjoyed it although the walking by the end was getting to her. Thoroughly enjoyed the whole day and the guide was excellent not Daniel or Christian but Andrea.
