Full description
This full-day tour of the World Heritage Sites of Pompeii and Herculaneum begins with a pick-up at your hotel in Naples and a transfer by bus to the ruins at Pompeii. There will be a tour assistant on the bus during this part of the excursion. On arriving in Pompeii you’ll meet your guide and then explore the ruins for around 2 hours. Your guide will show you the traditions and daily life of ancient Pompeii. You’ll see the large theater, the necropolis, the thermal baths, and some of the amazing houses that were owned by the richest residents. Enjoy lunch at a local restaurant. After lunch, head to Herculaneum where you’ll have the chance to explore the ruins on your own. It’s possible to observe the daily life of the population here in even more detail than in Pompeii, as the mud and volcanic debris that covered the city preserved the structures and artifacts of Herculaneum.

This is an excellent full day visit to 2 archeology sites. The day starts out with the tour company conveniently picking us up at our hotel. We were accompanied on the bus by a tour company employee, who provided us with constant information on the events of our day. She purchased the tickets to enter the Pompeii site and introduced us to a guide who provided a 90 minute tour of several locations in the excavation. The Pompeii site is very large and might take 1-2 weeks to see the entire facility. The guide gave us a good overview of the different areas and sites. The morning session concluded with an excellent lunch a short walk outside of the Pompeii excavation site. After lunch, the bus picked us up at the restaurant and we drove to the Herculean site. This site is smaller, but much more elaborate, as it was better preserved, A guide was provided for this 90 minute tour of this site. The bus was on site to take us back to our hotel after the tour.

5 of us visiting Naples wanted to take in Pempeii and Herculaneum. Notbthe cheapest tour but boy was it well worth the money. Quality transport, on time, no waiting around. Rosanna was looking after us. She was really friendly and made sure we knew what was happening. The tour of Pompeii was very informative and covered all we needed to know. The "Light Lunch", well, trust me, you do not need to take any snacks with you. Itvwas really good food and plenty of it serves by great staff. The time we had in Herculaneum was more than enough and again, we were well taken care of by Rosanna. during the day we had 3 different coaches and drivers. All the coaches were very clean with good air-conditioning and the drivers were well presented and very friendly. If you want to experience Pompeii and Herculaneum then you really won't go wrong booking this tour. Thank you all of you.

has paid off in full! the meeting place for us was around the corner, a lot was explained on the way there. Luckily we didn't have to queue with so many visitors and had a very informative and lively tour of Pompeii in English. in herculaneum we were too few for a guided tour, but the audio guide is great and there is a small, very well-made booklet in german. so it was no problem to explore the open-air museum. a little more time, i.e. 2 hours instead of 1.5 hours, would have been great. everything is great and impressive! both went out very well in one day! without this tour that would only be possible with great difficulty.
