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.

We are still in awe of Pompeii! This tour was incredibly orchestrated. We were greeted at the train station in Naples by our driver, Marco, who ended up being more like a tour guide than a driver. He shared all sorts of great history and information on our drive to Pompeii where we met our Pompeii guide, Ricardo. We feel... More

This is an excellent company - Alex was easy to deal with before we arrived. Our driver and guide (fiorella) were early which was good because we got off our cruise ship early. Fiorella was incredibly knowledgable and took us on a 2.5 hour tour of Pompeii with half of Naples !! It was a free entry day but she... More

We started by getting pickup from the train station and a tour of Pompeii with Roberta. We learned so much! Her enthusiasm and knowledge made our experience amazing. Having a one-on-one guide allowed us to go at our own pace and have time for questions. After the tour Roberta got us to our hotel in Naples (which was a bit... More

I would first like to have you all know that Alex, he coordinates everything, was exceptionally patient and quite helpful with providing me with information on what I could or could not do within my time frame. We exchanged a number of emails and he was very good at getting back to me. Fiorella is an excellent guide. She explains... More

We arranged a private van with a guide for Pompeii. We had scheduled it for 10 am but at 10:30 there was still no driver. I called the company from the hotel and it turned out that I had scheduled it for the next day (wrong day). Right away, the company made plans to have us picked up in half... More

Wanted to make the best of a week-end in Naples, avoiding to waste time in transfers and traffic. pick up at the airport, direct transfer to Pompei, car waiting with luggage, private tour, transfer to the hotel. I was a littlle scared of the Naples reputation. Came across VvPPT. I got a quote from Alex, researched the company on TA,... More

We had one of the best days of our 3 wk Mediterranean trip with Fiorella. Naples is a fascinating city- don't be put off by what others say. We had previously toured the Amalfi coast and Ravello on another cruise and decided to check out Naples this time. We wanted a custom culinary, cultural and art tour of the city.... More
