We have just returned from our visit to Pompeii and Vesuvius it was wonderful. Our driver Max was on time and the vehicle was clean and cool. Max was lovely and an excellent driver we felt completely safe. Drop offs and pick ups were close to each location and it was reassuring to know we had an air conditioned vehicle to come back to on a hot day. I would suggest you ensure you have cash to pay for drinks and souvenirs on Vesuvius as the connectivity for card transactions can be patchy. This has to be the best way to organise your visit to what are obviously very popular sites. My husband and I would definitely recommend. We return home to Nottingham tomorrow with very happy memories.

Well organized tour. Prepared and friendly guides. I advise. The price is worth the purchase. Organizing yourself does not spare. Here they come to pick you up and bring you back ... No worries, they do everything themselves.

Great service, we´ve enjoyed it a lot. Only one point is that you have to keep waiting. Our guide picked up us about 15 minutes later. But everything else was amazing!

A very rewarding day. The guides are very knowledgeable and attentive to our questions. Well organized and no waste of time.

All 3 of the activities were great- they were all with different guides.
