My daughter and I went on this tour. Rafael is a wonderful tour guide! He is knowledgeable and kind and made the tour fun. So much to see and learn! After touring Pompeii he took us to our driver who drove us up to a winery. The food was fabulous and just to let you know it was a lot of food! The wines were great and we took home a few bottles to enjoy later. I highly recommend!!

It was all perfect!! The guide is clearly passionate about his work, he explained things that we would certainly pass on if we were alone. The wine tasting was a great surprise, great wines and delicious lunch, we were in love.

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.

What i expected. Only English and Italian guiding at the same time is a little bit tiring.

The driver was good and our tour guide gave us a lot of good information
