Excellent value for money. Our guide Lucia was very informative for the whole day. Pompeii was just amazing, didn't think it could be topped but Mount Vesuvius was breath taking. The whole journey up there was in the mist. But the last few miles broke through the mist and the sun and blue skies were unbelievable. The whole day was one of most enjoyable. Would recommend this company any day as indeed I have already done so. Thanks again

Pompeii & Vesuvius day trip
I booked online before we went... A lot cheaper if you do this as it is really expensive if you book In Italy. Our guide Maria, Italian but spoke very good English, treated everyone with a relaxed and friendly attitude... First class! We went to Mount Vesuvius first walked to the top looked into the creator.. Fantastic! Then we drove to Pompeii and had lunch, after we were guided around pompeii via a intercom lead by maria, to view the entire place it takes two days, Maria took us to the main places.. it was brilliant, our guide Maris knows her stuff.
Brilliant day out, well worth the money, super guide! Thank you!

This was a fantastic excursion. Our tour guide Francesco was absolutely brilliant and had the group laughing all day. Very funny guy and really entertaining. Not only that but his English was excellent and his knowledge of all things Pompei/Vesuvius related was extremely helpful.
I must also give a big shout out to our driver Ferdinando. An established driver which is what is needed on these ever winding roads and a very pleasant one to boot!!
The trip itself was amazing and definitely worth doing. Being at the top of mount Vesuvius is a fantastic sight to behold and Pompei is just as Francesco said "like being transported back in time"
If thinking of doing this tour, this is the company to book with and I only hope you get Francesco. Very funny guy!!!!

Great day out
We had a great day visiting Pompei and Vesuvius with Hugo and Eustace and everyone was on time and Hugo our guide was very funny and made a hot sticky day fun. We did two hours in Pompei and with Hugo's experience managed to miss the crowds although we couldn't see every thing. Worth the money to take a guide and we are glad we did. As for the guide having and accent that is no surprise if you are in Italy!
