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

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

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

Hard walk to the rim of Vesuvius but well worth it. Tours of Pompeii and Herculaneum were fascinating

You know the dream version of a tour, where it feels like you are just walking around a city with your coolest friend, the one who just happens know everything and everyone, and which cheese place you absolutely must try? And can somehow explain entire centuries of history in the most engaging, interesting way, and can sense the exact minute... More

Very conveniently organized excursion to Mount Vesuvius. Car to take us from the site collection to the top of the volcano were comfortable, drivers are experienced. Climb to the crater of the volcano took 15-20 minutes. Upstairs was cloudy and cold. However, it did not spoil our mood. When inflated clouds, offers a wonderful view of the volcano itself and...
