Great day exploring Pompeii. We went in August so it was super hot but we still enjoyed it. The train ride wasn't as bad as we were told and actually the one we took back from Pompeii had an air conditioner. Also really liked the free time we could have but it was so hot that we just decided to go back to Sorrento.

It was very easy to find our tour guide at the train station. She was very nice and gave us our trian tickets to get over to pompeii and to get back and made sure everyone was on the train before we left. She explained everything very well and gave a very good tour which overall toom about 2hrs. She explained that after the tour we could stay if we wanted or get the next train back to sorrento. Very good value for money.
