So, personally I found travel and finding prices and the right mode of transportation incredibly difficult once in Napoli and so to me it was certainly worth the extra money to get transportation, as well as skip the line tickets. Since we stayed in Napoli, Pompeii is about an hour drive away and if you do not know the area... More

Fiorella efficiently organised a tour at the last minute for us. We were picked up punctually by Francesco in his Mercedes and taken straight to Vesuvius. After climbing the Volcano he recommended a nice restaurant where we had lunch. Then we proceeded to Pompeii where he introduced us to our guide Alberto who was friendly & very knowledgeable about Pompeii.... More

We were promptly picked up at the cruise port and driven to Pompeii by the best driver in Italy. His car was extremely comfortable and he drove carefully. In Pompeii, our guide geared the tour to my grandsons, ages 7 and 12. We had a wonderful time. Our driver then took us to Vesuvius. On the way, we stopped for... More

Fiorella made all of the arrangements for our family to tour Pompeii ruins. This included arranging transportation from our apartment where we were staying in Positano. Fiorella is a seasoned tour guide and knew just how to maximize our time by navigating through the site and avoiding the crowds. She often said "It's like a war", meaning she had to... More

We came to the Amalfi coast for a wedding and decided to explore Pompeii and Naples in one day and explore the island of Capri on another day. After some research I decided on Vesuvius vs Pompeii tours. It was the BEST decision! Roberta was our private tour guide for both days. From the moment she met us Roberta took... More

Valerie and I ended our trip to the Amalfi Coast with a visit to Pompeii. We were told by friends that it would be best to hire a guide who would be able to give us background and information about what we were seeing as the site itself was quite vast. This way, we wouldn't be wandering around aimlessly wondering... More

Pompeii has grown since my last visit and you do need either a full day or 2 half days to appreciate what is there. Vesuvius is okay for the fairly fit as it is a long way up to the crater and it seems longer coming back down but the views are spectacular from the top.

Poured with rain, entrance full of vendors , rubbish/horrible toilets at entrance and only 1 or 2. BUT... the excavations are truly great, so sad, but so lucky to have this time capsule, actually just like Italy now.

We took the high speed train from Rome to Naples and were met at the Train station by our guide, Roberta. On the short drive to Pompeii, she pointed out the topography and interesting reference points of Naples as only a native in love with her home city could. Roberta was able to give us a beautiful overview of Pompeii... More

Had an awesome time at Pompeii with a very informative tour guide and bus driver, we then hiked up Vesuvious without the tour guide and just with my group of friends to save money, which they were happy to accomodate. Would easily recommend to friends or family and got a really competitive price.
