Excellent activity, with a mixture of physical activity (short hike to the top of Vesuvius) and cultural activity with the formidable performance of Italo in the middle of the remains of Pompeii. It is as exciting for parents as it is for children (with a lot of patience). The anecdotes are numerous and rich in detail. Italo speaks French and English very well. Francesco, our driver, also made this day very pleasant. On time, helpful and friendly. He advised us well for lunch and thus avoid the classic restaurants of Pompeii. A big thank-you

Excellent and professional service, arriving on time and patiently waiting for us both in Pompeii and Mont Vesuvio. I would like to thank both Valeria for professionally organizing the trip (and giving us all the links/info needed to book the entrance ticked for Pompeii and Mont Vesuvius) and Giovanni for going out of his way for us (2 adults and 2 kids aged 11 and 13) to have a good time in and around Naples. I’ll definitely use their service again if we re-visit Naples later.

We had a private driver named Giovanni! He was very nice, drove great, and also talked a bit about the volcano. My mother and I were then dropped at the starting point and had about 1.5 hours to walk up and down once. We didn't have a guide, so we had time to ourselves and were able to climb up relaxed. Was a great view from the top! At the end there was a snack stand and in between there were also small accessory stands where you could buy nice souvenirs.

Very well organized. Very punctual, both departure and return. Totally motivated guide. Lots of nice and informative information. Thanks for the right music during the rides. I would book again at any time. I'd be happy to recommend it.

Very good organization. times respected. Everything OK
