Our guide explained the difference of how the volcanic eruption impacted Pompeii and Herculaneum, also the differences of the towns. He showed us the ruins and explained the shops and homes, etc. Lots of finds in the museum. Very interesting.

Took the train from Sorrento. Take the newer train if you can. Not any quicker but more comfortable and a smoother ride. The trains take between 1hr10mins and 1hr 25mins . Not the 55mins on the schedule. 11 euros for 2 return. V easy downslope to the site ( 10 mins). Bit longer on the way back but plenty of watering holes on the way down and back. Not busy on an afternoon visit. very difficult to get the head around the fact that this site was on the sea shore. You do not need tour or a guide, ( 2 hours inside ) and you can wander to your hearts content. All in 24 euros each. Cheapest tour from hotel 32 euros + entry fee ,18 euros each. Also more interesting doing your own thing. Couple of botts of water needed. Couple of small museums on site V interesting to see what survived. Some items will surprise.

Had a wonderful tour of Pompeii, it was our first time going and literally our guide made it so amazing. Completely worth the tour, saw lots of people lost/confused trying to read a map but our guide was super knowledgeable and pointed out so many things not on the map. Would definitely recommend.

The view was awesome and the place was beautiful. The only drawback was that it was scorching hot and if we had to go back to the hotel to drink water, I could not re-enter the excavation site.

Our tour was from a cruise ship and was fabulous. Early in the day and without crowds as you would find at Pompeii. It was a resort village, populated with only a few slaves and caretakers when hit by a pyroclastic flow that covered the town to a depth of six meters, preserving it. Wonderful mosaics, frescoes and statues. Photographers will enjoy the subjects of buildings, streets, art, and houses. Do not suggest a tripod, my DSLR with a zoom lens was all I needed. Some rooms are dark, so anticipate using a high ISO. Take shots from the rim above before walking through the tunnel to be in the village. Then you will use the wide-angle a lot.
