Fantastic tour. Our guide Darren, explained a lot of the historic life in Pompeii. He also planned our route so that we wouldn’t be following the others tours. The size of the site and work done to reclaim it is amazing. Vesuvius was also very interesting. I never met the volcanist but the volcano was straight forward right up to the smoke filtering out of the top. An amazing view of the whole area. I have only 1 criticism. The bro shire says it is a short walk. It actually quite a climb. But worth it
Excellent organization! Our guide was able to answer all the questions. Easy communication and I felt as if we were friends for a long time. The tour itself was very useful, without it there is no sense at all to go to Pompeii or Mount Vesuvius.
Great tour! Comfortable bus ride and wonderful tour guide in Pompeii. Pizza lunch was very good on the way to Vesuvius. 1km walk up the mountain is easy to do with spectacular views of Naples and the Bay. Totally worthwhile!
Loved this tour! The guide in Pompeii was very knowledgeable. The hike up Mt. Vesuvius was a great way to end the excursión. Our guide from World Tours, Alessandra, and driver, Rosario, were very good.
Very nice, exquisite staff. Definitely to be recommended.
