A very interesting day, we always get a guide for this type of trip as there is so much information we wouldn’t get without one. Our guide, Elisa, was great and gave a lot of good information. Trip length was about right with a couple of hours around Pompeii and a couple of hours for the Vesuvius visit. I would definitely recommend this trip who want to visit Pompeii and Vesuvius.

We got picked up from a location near our accommodation and not overly early (10:00), which was convenient. Our guide (Francesca) was funny and informative. The Pompeii trip was very interesting - it's amazing how large well-preserved this city is. Hiking up to Vesuvius gives you some great views of the surrounding area (weather-permitting). The crater itself is more of a valey, so if you're imagining some deep dark hole, you may be a little disappointed. If short on time, you could skip the hiking part.

Great day, the guide in Pompeii was interesting. Time a little short at Vesuvius, it would have taken 30min more to avoid rush. Only downside, on the way back the driver didn't drop us off at our pick-up location (check with the driver where you have to get off because the location is different), didn't speak English and made us understand that it was from our fault if we didn't get off at the right place. Sorry to be a tourist.
