    For a full day trip, and it did take longer than advertised, it was worth it. The guided tour of Pompeii was excellent, very informative and funny. I wish I could remember the guides name to give him the credit he deserves. The trip to Positano was beautiful but the traffic getting out was pretty much bumper to bumper. My only criticism would be for a bus tour, it would have been better if the windows were clean, so the photos from the bus were better, but I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend it.

    The trip by train was fantastic easy and quick, short transfer from the train station where we met by our guide Antonio, who was excellent and exceptionally well informed with a passion for his charges and the subject. Well looked after and grateful to have spent the time tick off the bucket list this trip.

    It made all the difference to have a private tour with a knowledgeable guide. It greatly increases the efficiency of the time, moving more easily among the destinations than the larger groups we saw. Luciana was an excellent, very knowledgeable guide. We highly recommend this tour.

    Very convenient way to explore both Pompeii and Vesuvius in one day with everything included. Transport all went smoothly and took the stress out of planning the day ourselves. The cost included everything like the entry tickets and a pizza and drink for lunch, but we were also given the option of gnocci and tomato sauce.

    For Pompeii we had a guided tour where as for Mt Vesuvius it was self guided which we enjoyed to have a balance between the two. It was the minimum amount of time I would recommend spending in Pompeii, if you are really interested in the detailed history of it then I would say to spend a day doing only Pompeii. We felt that due to the tour guide (Mateo) we didn’t have enough time to see as much as Pompeii as we wanted to at our own pace. He spent too much time at the beginning of the tour giving us detailed talks stood still which meant we were rushed at some of the most beautiful parts.

    The climb up Mt Vesuvius was quite steep but had beautiful views and didn’t take long (around 30 mins). You could try some wine at a bar at the top and buy souvenirs.

    Luciana was a wonderful guide, pleasant and knowledgeable. She painted a picture of ancient Pompei that allowed us to experience life as it was. I highly recommend taking this guided tour.

    Paolo was very knowledgeable and entertaining. His English was perfect. he provided insights not only into the original lives of the inhabitants of Pompei and Herculaneum, but also told us about the Nobels doing the "Grand Tour" and the effect that this had on Pompeii. He listened carefully and answered question expansively and with good humour. He coped well with the wide range of ages in our own groups ( 2- 72!) and the relative infirmity of the older members of the group.

    Overall a very good experience. Started on time. The tour guide for Pompeii was excellent and very knowledgable. Andy our guide who took us around all day was very good as well. Only one concern - Andy was promoting his personal website a lot, which was inappropriate

    Rosella was a fantastic guide. Thoroughly recommend this tour as a smooth fuss free way to experience more ancient Roman highlights outside of Rome, as well as experience delicious fresh pizza/Neapolitan pastries and Naples highlights.

    Excellent tour! It was about 5 hours total. They provided accomodations to pick us up at our hotel at 10:10. Bus of about 30 people, but once we got to the excavation site, they split us in half. Took about 40 mins to reach the destination from Gibraldi Square in Naples. Over the 2-3 hour walking tour, we covered about a 1/3 Pompeii, focusing on the major points of interest. Our guide was very passionate and knowledgeable. Afterwards we were given 30 mins to check out the shops on the close vicinity. Afterwards the bus brought us back to the Train Station in Naples. Would recommend a tour over walking around on your own. While we had accomodations to go back to Naples, some people went on to the Mount Vesuvius tour, while others were staying longer to your Pompeii on your own. The included transportation is great of you don't have a lot of time to dedicate to viewing Pompeii.

    We had a wonderful day trip to Pompeii and Mount Vesuvius with an outstanding guide, Gabriel Casavega and an excellent driver, Gennaro. Gabriel took every measure to ensure that all in the group would have a memorable day. The pickup was exactly on time and the bus very modern and clean. Gabriel shared his knowledge with us as well as his passion for Napoli and all it's offerings. He was a pure delight, humoristic, and succeeded in making the day trip great for all participants.

    This was a good, comfortable, well organized and well led bus tour from Rome to Pompeii and Mount Vesuvius. This tour delivered what it promised to do and was a good introduction to Pompeii and Mount Vesuvius National Park. To understand this tour, you have to understand the limitations of a day tour by bus. You will be traveling with a large amount of people and you will be herded from place to place. You will not get to choose what you want to do, or how long to do it. You will not get to explore Pompeii at a leisurely pace, or even have time to explore the whole town. We had less than 2 hours at Pompeii. You will end up stopping in tourist traps along the highway because they are the only bathroom facilities large enough to host tour buses. That being said, this was a very nice tour. Bus was comfortable, my the tour guide was very personable and knowledgeable and we got to experience two bucket list destinations in one day. On the downside, Pompeii was extremely crowded, we saw relatively little of it, the lunch place was mediocre at best and the rest stops were at this awful tacky restaurant/ gift shop that had bad food and sold liquors in pornographic bottles.
