The ticket works exactly as described. Pompeii is definitely worth seeing. The train from Sorrento is horrible (old, rickety, very hot) - but the best way to get to Pompeii. What made this tour worth it was Gino, the tour guide. What a gem. He was incredibly knowledgable, funny, and very passionate, and accommodated the tour for the people with kids. I don't feel the need to see Pompeii again (once was very cool), but I would do it again just to have him as a guide. Recommend!!!

My sisters and I had a lovely evening - it is social as well as interesting, and the food and wine were really good.

Josephine was excellent. Very organized, made sure we kept together and we had audio.

Good value. Our guide Jossie was fab and very knowledgeable about the local area.

Despite pouring rain had excellent and informative guide of Pompeii.
