Pompéi guided tour was excellent and the walk to mount Vesuvio very enjoyable, our guide Antonio & driver Paolo were also helpful and friendly, the only downside was no public toilets at mount Vesuvio.

The site was amazing! The staff was so friendly and helpful! I've taken several tours on my vacation to Italy, but I wasn't overly captured and pulled into the history of this amazing place as I have been with other tours such as of the Coliseum, Sistine Chapel, and other sites. The tour guide we had for Pompeii was knowledgeable, but quite repetitive with filling dead space with pointing out things that had already been noted and explained such as store fronts, frescos, and fountains, and such... instead of speaking more on the history of the time and framing out the history of events going on during that time. I still enjoyed myself as I didn't know much about Pompeii and Roman culture and would've been kind of lost wandering around by myself. If someone was just looking for general knowledge on this tour I would recommend, but if they're looking for a deep historical guide, I would advise them to look somewhere else.

La visita a Pompeya fue muy interesante y la duración fue buena. La guía que nos acompañó en esta visita nos narró muy bien toda la historia de la ciudad y muchas de las anecdotas de Pompeya. Luego fuimos al Vesubio donde cada uno por su cuenta subió hasta el crater del volcán. Nos dieron hora y media. El tour en general estuvo bien, pero nos pareció que el precio estuvo por encima de lo ofrecido.

It was nice having someone pick us up in downtown and drive us everywhere for the journey. The included pizza for lunch was nice too.

You can enjoy transfers from Sorrento/Naples on a deluxe air-conditioned bus. The first stop is at the archaeological site of Pompeii. Here you will visit some of the city’s most famous spots, along with a licensed guide. You can see the Civil Forum, which was the center of all trade and administrative activities in the city. Next up is the Temple of Jupiter, with Mt Vesuvius rising in the background. The Via dell’Abbondanza is the main street of ancient Pompeii, and runs east-west through the city. Once buzzing with shops, workshops and restaurants, it was one of the hotspots of the city. You will also get a chance to visit the Forum Baths, the house of the Meander, and the Large Theater of Pompeii.

After about 2.5 hours, you will be taken to the slopes of Mount Vesuvius. From here, you can enjoy a beautiful trek to the edge of the crater, at 1280 meters. Note that the surface is uneven, and that trekking shoes would be ideal. From the top, you can catch panoramic views of Pompeii and the Gulf of Naples.

You will return to Sorrento/Naples in the afternoon to complete the trek.
