This trip was great. I would definitely recommend to friends. Elisa was fabulous! There were 6 of us in our group. We were the first ones picked up. We then picked up others. If you don’t have much time in Naples I would definitely recommend doing a tour that includes Naples. After the short tour of Naples we headed to pompei where we met up with a much larger group and were given headsets to hear Elisa. Where good walking shoes. The tour is about 2 hours. Then we got a great lunch with option of pizza, lasagna, or salad. Our group had all 3 and liked them all. And option of 1 drink: water, soda, or beer. We then got on a bus and were taken to my Vesuvius where the hike was mostly up hill. Once again would recommend good shoes such as sneakers. There was no guided tour doe this part but I didn’t feel it was very necessary. My group is very physically fit so we had ample time to walk all open areas.

Everything was awesome, hotel pick up, then Naples, Pompeii just amazing to finish Vesuvius. We had a wonderful day, no worries we let ourselves be carried throughout the day. The guides very professional and friendly. Only happiness and good memories

The city tour was excellent! The guide Elisa was extraordinary, answering our questions in a clear and fun way. The ascent to Mount Vesuvius is without a doubt a highlight of the entire tour. Pompeii is an interesting historical landmark!

Very complete tour, the stay in Pompeii is quite long, but you always want to see more. Elisa and Rita, the guides, we liked them a lot for their way of explaining everything we saw. We would repeat

Overall the experience was phenomenal!! Francesca was amazing from start to finish. We especially loved the GPS she used to point out special areas in Pompeii!
