I cannot fault this tour. The lady guide was so hospitable and made the tour very interesting, and the use of a headset ensured we could always hear her, as it was crowded. Also having the entry ticket included in the price, saved a lot of queuing to enter the site. I would highly recommend this tour & company.
Good tour of the Pompeii ruins. Our guide was very knowledgeable and considerate of every group member. The place is really big and cannot be covered in a few hours.
