Everything is well thought out, the meeting point is clear, the guide was very kind (and spoke good French), the quick bus tour of Napples is well worth the detour, and afterwards you can choose to stay with the group or discover Pompei on your own. Top bus driver We loved this experience

Pompeii, a must. Our guides, Cristina and the local one, were magnificent, efficient, very kind, patient; 10 out of 10. The Vesuvius experience was a little short because, although it did not consist of going up to the crater, the explanations of the local guide left much to be desired. Still, it is well worth it to go up in the windowless bus with a driver as attentive as the one we had.

Laura was an excellent guide. She was very helpful, had the best tips, taught us about the history of the didferent places we passed by and also showed us some local songs. The tour guide at Pompeii was extremely knowledgeable and made the tour enjoyable. I highly recommend joining this daytrip. It was also interesting to visit the limoncello factory on that day. I would just recommend people to do some research before Sorrento, so that you know what to do during your free time.
