Full description
Your tour will begin from the historical city center of Naples, from where you will head to Mount Vesuvius. This tour provides you with a unique opportunity to reach the most characteristic locations of this historic region. After about 1 hour of driving through the city, you will begin to pass through a national park that features amazing views of the Bay of Naples. You will ascend to 1,000 meters in your bus, from where you will take a walking path up to the crater. Once here you can admire breathtaking views, and learn more about local geology from your volcanological guide. You can listen to explanations about the many transformations of the mountain due to its volcanic nature from a professional alpine guide, who will provide great insight as to how and why this great nature force was able to destroy Pompeii and Herculaneum. You will then have time to walk around and take pictures before re-boarding your bus and returning to Naples.

    The communication to know the location of where to pick us up was very good, although the Starhotel Terminus is in a very deprived area so watch your belongings. The drive to Vesuvius was pleasant and the driver was friendly. When we arrived we had to wait for 40minutes before entering the trail which was frustrating to better time management is needed here. The trail to the top was great and the views were incredible.

    Initially we looked at doing this trip independently but decided to take this tour instead. I am so glad we did. We were picked up on time close to our hotel and driven to the entrance of the path up to the crater. We were given ample time to get up and back. It was all very easy and we would totally recommend this tour. There were three of us on the tour and our driver was helpful, knowledgable and friendly. He also pointed out places of interest on the way to and from the crater. Being a local he gave us some good information and knew his city well. The communication pre trip was excellent and we were well briefed on the pick up times and sent the tickets for the crater through WhatsApp. All very well organised.

    Extreme winds at the peak of Vesuvius meant our tour had to be cut short, but thanks to the extraordinary transparency, fairness and professionalism of the organiser, I didnt walk away disappointed. They even organised a partial refund without being asked, which was processed within a day. Extra services, such as bag storage at the meeting point were a great help, and I appreciate her common sense realisation that €15 (€5 each) to store our rucksacks for 4 hours is excessive, especially after already paying over €80 for the excursion, so only charging us for one. This, and lots of other subtle gestures, showed that they care about hospitality and going the extra mile.
