Having lived in Naples as a child, the shore excursions available from our cruise ship would not go where I wanted to go so we sent emails to some of the top tripadvisor-rated tour companies and were lucky to come across Mondo Guides and particularly Vincenzo! All our correspondence was conducted with Vincenzo and he was very helpful in determining the plan for our day in Naples. He met us right at the ship dock in a beautiful Mercedes sedan and off we went to Pompeii. Along the way he was extremely informative regarding the history of the area and once we arrived in Pompeii, pointed out the best sights to try and see in 2 hours. We chose not to have a guided tour of Pompeii but by following his suggestions we were able to see an outstanding cross section of the ruins.
After Pompeii we drove to the heart of Naples where we visited many of the places I remember from over 40 years ago. He even took the time (before our visit!) to go twice to the apartment building that I lived in, to speak to some of the current tenants and see if there was anyone still living there from my day.
We had a wonderful, interesting day and it is obvious how proud Vincenzo is of his city and culture. A chance to do a tour with him is highly recommended and I sincerely hope to get back there one day to see more of the area.
