This was a fantastic tour - you cover so much in a relatively short time! Very well organized. Our guide Luigi (and Luigi the driver!), as well as Genaro in Pompeii, were all wonderful - so knowledgeable - and they did the tour in Italian and English, which was pretty impressive! Genaro painted a great picture of everyday life in Pompeii, as well as events leading up to the eruption, and guided us to things we never would have discovered on our own. The driver, Luigi, navigated the bus up the twisty mountain to Vesuvios with unbelievable skill. Seeing the volcano (even when it hailed!) - was well worth the hike up the last part of the mountain!! You should definitely be prepared for a steep hike up! This was definitely one of the best things we did during our trip to Italy!

Definitely will recommend taking the tour for visiting Pompei and Vesuvio, it’s way easier and more confortable than going by yourself (both stops are aprox 30 mins away from the city center and you skip the lines to enter). The tour guide at Pompei was really enthusiastic and fun but the tour itself felt a little rush. At Vesuvio you hike to the top by yourself, the view was espectacular from the top but I think they could have gave us a bit more fun facts or info during the bus ride before going up. Overall it was good and everyone was really friendly and helpful.

The tour in Pompei was okay it was so busy and full of people that it made us not enjoy it. But the climb to mount vesuvius was amazing and made the day for us. Also the bus felt a bit cramped I was travelling with my partner but had to sit with a random person as there were no 2 seats available. its not a big deal just preference
