We loved our driver Ricardo, he was so friendly, helpful, informative and made the whole day great! He drove us to Sorrento and gave suggestions on where to eat & shop. Then we went to Pompeii and this was amazing as well. We did not get a tour guide with this package for Pompeii, kinda wish we had, but it was still great. Didn't realize that the package did not include admission to Pompeii, this was the only real drawback because did not expect to pay. Wasn't too expensive though, so it was fine. I went with my husband, My daughter and son in law and my youngest adult daughter and we all loved Ricardo and loved having this time to just our family, great way to end our final day in Italy!!
This trip was the nicest of our entire week in Rome. Paolo, our driver, drove us through the narrowest streets with sleepwalking security and also told little stories. Gaetano, our guide in Pompeii, was not only very charming, but also a great guide who was able to show us exciting and informative details on every corner. Without him we would have missed a lot in Pompeii! We then did not quite manage the ascent to Vesuvius. On the one hand, this was due to the very warm weather, on the other hand, the delicious food that we were allowed to enjoy at the winery. Very tasty, very rich - highly recommended! :)
Our driver Giovanni and guide Francesco were very hospitable and gave us what was within their means to make the tour memorable. But please note that the catacombs are not open throughout the year and only a scheduled opening is made in winter. Through no fault of our guides, we were unable to see the catacombs but were given an alternate site and still provided for to the best of the guides' abilities.
Beautiful experience at dawn on a Sunday morning. As soon as the hot air balloon broke away from the ground, it seemed to live in an almost surreal reality, time stopped and everything became magic ... Wonderful landscapes and enchanted atmosphere. All the fears that had made me hesitant for days also dissolved. Great credit also goes to Ivan and Elisa, truly exquisite people. Straconsiglio.
