Depart from the center of Sorrento in an air-conditioned bus with an expert guide for a 4-hour excursion through history.  You will arrive at Herculaneum for the walking tour.  Thanks to its excellent climate and its seaside position, Herculaneum grew into a holiday destination for wealthy Romans who built and bought estate there. After the eruption of Mount Vesuvio in 79 BC, the town lay buried for centuries.  It wasn't until 1738 that digs began in Herculaneum, but it took a long time before the town was brought back to light. It was discovered that Herculaneum was hit by a pyroclastic flow, so the ruins are well preserved and its visitors have a much better idea of what a Roman town may have looked like. The excavations are still in progress, and only a part of the town can be seen, so the knowledge of an expert local guide will make the experience even more suggestive and unforgettable.  At the end of the tour the bus will return to the main meeting point in Sorrento.

Thanks to the guide we discovered unimaginable places and I am proud of the experience. Soon we book this tour with all my family and friends also in Naples. See you soon! Giulio

Excellent day, if there are 6-8 people in your party I would highly recommend this tour as cost is approx £900. The driver was waiting for us 30mins early in a lovely Mercedes minibus, travelled to Pompeii where we met our guide, he was extremely knowledgeable, friendly and spoke great English. Pompeii is huge and we spent about 3hrs there where he showed and explained soo much about it and I suspect would be lost in a large group. On to Herculaneum for a similar experience then up to Vesuvius to be dropped off close to the entrance, spent approx 90mins walking up/down with the driver pulling into the carpark as we came down. As mentioned above it is an expensive day and you could join other trips of 20-30 people in a group but the personal touch this trip gave was worth the extra £30-£40 it probably cost us each.

This experience was fantastic. Great value for what you got. Viviana/Vivian was a great tour guide. Very knowledgeable, personable, and funny. 10/10 recommend.

Very enjoyable and educational! Family and lunch superior. Great outing.
