Full description
On this full-day tour from Naples you will visit the ancient city of Pompeii and the town of Sorrento. You will be picked up either at your hotel or one of the meeting points in the morning. Head to Pompeii to explore one of the most fascinating places in the Province of Naples with a professional guide. Here you can learn the history of the rich and populated Roman town that was buried under tons of volcanic ash after the eruption of Mount Vesuvius in the year 79 AD. Almost 2,000 years later, you have the opportunity to discover the everyday life of the Imperial Age and imagine the panic of the people before the city was so disastrously buried. On the 2-hour walking tour, your guide will show you fascinating places such as the Forum, the Thermal Baths, the Lupanar, and House of the Vettii with its beautiful frescos. After visiting Pompeii, you will take a brief stop for lunch before heading towards the Sorrento coast. On the way there you can admire the medieval castle, the town of Castellammare di Stabia Comes, the small and enchanting beaches of Vico Equense and Seiano, and the typical Mediterranean vegetation of lemon and orange trees. You will also stop at the panoramic viewpoint in Meta di Sorrento to look up to the wonderful sight of the bay overlooking the sea. You will visit Sorrento and take a 1-hour tour of the town. Here you will walk through the narrow streets and see the stores and little workshops as the guide shows you around the most renowned places. Visit the Villa Comunale, from where you can admire the breathtaking scenery and the beauty of the coast as far as Punta Campanella and Capri Island.

Francesca was thouroughly knowledgeble on Pompeii unstumpable

Francesca was thouroughly knowledgeble on Pompeii and was never stumped by odd or unusual questions. She seem to anticipate what we wanted before we asked. She was calm and cool even in the 42C heat. I would recommend this tour. Manuela, our guide in Sorrento knew all the good spots to shop in the small town especially the best gelato (Primavera!) and the best limoncello spots.

Enjoyable tour but would have liked longer at each loation

Overall we enjoyed the tour, but the time at each location was too short and was quite rushed. The hotel pick up is nice, but eats into the day, then when you get to Pompeii you wait to get sorted into groups, again this wastes more time. You get the allotted 2 hours with the guide however, in that time you cannot possibly cover even half the site, but you see some of the notable sights. Pompeii is vast and if I was to do a Pompeii tour again, I would choose a tour that spent longer at the site one that had some free time to explore as well (minimum of 3-4 hours). The tour guide was good and gave a good account of how life was and the various parts we visited. The lunch was nice, but eats into the day, snack lunch would be a better option. Sorrento was lovely, but again quite rushed with limited time, although we did get the allotted 1 hour as stated and is not nearly long enough (minimum of 2-3 hours). This tour really only offers a 'taster' of the sights to see.

It was a great day trip !! Was punctual but meeting point was a little confusing at first. The guides were very organized beside that. The guide in Pompeii and sorrento were both amazing. Elisa and Alex. My dad enjoyed every bit of it. The guides were very knowledgeable and also fun. They were very patient regardless how big the group was. FYI if you want a private one on one tour this is not it but this is totally worth the money spent.
