We went on this day trip with Jonathan our guide he was very knowledgeable when providing us with the history of Mount Vesuvius and Pompeii. The lunch was delicious, I have a dairy allergy and the restaurant made an accommodation for me with providing me with a separate fried dough with no cheese, Marinara Pizza & sliced strawberries for dessert. Our bus did not have good AC, but I will not take a star as overall we truly made the most of our day and both Jonathan and the driver tried their best to fix the situation!

Only thing that I wish was better was using the bathroom before exiting Pompeii instead of using public toilets and having to pay instead of going for free in the museum. Also at the restaurant the waiters need to give people more water quicker but other then that excellent.

It is a service present in many cities, especially the blue line to reach Posillipo, Mergellina and the more remote districts, with wonderful views of Naples and the gulf. If you already have a ticket you can get on at any stop and not necessarily at the terminus. Advised

Barbara was a fantastic guide, she was very knowledgeable in what she was telling us and also very funny. Antonio our driver was also a fantastic guy. Highly recommend. At Pompei Francesca was also incredible and we learnt a lot.

Alberto was great! He knows a lot. the Day was long but very interesting
