Visit splendid villas, the amphitheatre, imperial forums, temples, the thermal baths and the famous Abundance Street.

Very convenient, quick way to see Pompeii

It was super convenient being picked up from our hotel and having a pleasant ride to Pompeii from Sorrento. The tour guides were all friendly. I would recommend the tour but not rating a 5 star because it was hard to hear the guide and they would benefit from using a radio/earphone system. Also, keep in mind you must pay cash 15 Euro each person to enter Pompeii. This is an additional fee.
