Angie was amazing. Knowledgeable, friendly, funny, patient and a great story teller. I'd love to go on another trip just to hear her talk. Antonio our driver was lovely. Lillia our guide at Pompeii was very informative. Although it was a long day we thoroughly enjoyed every minute. Rest stops were built in and it was possible to buy snacks at the stop. We were able to get lunch at Pompeii, very reasonably priced.

A very interesting day, we always get a guide for this type of trip as there is so much information we wouldn’t get without one. Our guide, Elisa, was great and gave a lot of good information. Trip length was about right with a couple of hours around Pompeii and a couple of hours for the Vesuvius visit. I would definitely recommend this trip who want to visit Pompeii and Vesuvius.

We had an excellent tour with Sasa. It was extremely informative but still relaxed and fun. He was accommodating to adjust the tour to things we requested. A fantastic tour.

We loved the excursion, both the visit to Pompeii (our magnificent guide, Elisa, for her knowledge and friendliness) and the climb to Vesuvius, accompanied by Rita.

Just fantastic!! Really well organised and the guide was both clear, informative and funny!!
