The local tour guide has neither informed about the pick-up itself nor announced that the Vesuvius region has been closed for days. The entrance fee for the Vesuvius tour was simply retained. Lunch was questionable; Pizza dough was simply served with canned tomatoes and cheap cheese. However, our tour guide and the archeologist who accompanied us as a tour guide in Pompei were very good.

Nice visit but a little too express.. the guides are very good, know how to share their knowledge and the history of the site with you. Question meal: pizza or pasta and a drink… fast and quickly shipped. I recommend this excursion if you want a turnkey visit… fast I will come back to Pompeii but I will take my time this time… Thanks to GetYourGuide for these attractions

For my taste it is a highly recommended excursion, the guide that was with us told us in detail about the ruins of Pompeii... I was somewhat reluctant to go because they had told me that it was not worth it, but it really is worth it. The excursion to Vesuvius, if you are a person who does not tolerate the curves on the road or does not tolerate hill walks very well, I do not recommend it; it is a visit without a guide and they do not tell you anything about the volcano. If you want to have the experience of being on top of a volcano I recommend it.
