This was very well organized, and despite the fact that the day booked the historical site was closed due to weather conditions, which is out of everyone’s control, your team, was able to reset our visit for the next day, and everything went smoothly. Elena our guide was fabulous and super nice and helpful. Still answering questions even on the drive back and gave helpful tips all the way.

Brilliant tour guides, knowledgeable and friendly. We were moved from one bus to another which was a little confusing and felt that this may have eaten into the time of the tour, but still got a lot out of it. The lunch was very tasty, exactly what was needed for a day travelling. Communication was okay, should be advised to download the app before travelling as this was not made very clear, but all in all was a very good trip. We learnt a lot about Pompeii, and Vesuvius, even though the Volcano was shut due to a landslide, we still got to see a decent amount and understood why. Very good trip and would recommend.

The pick up was prompt. Our guide Francesca was very entertaining and enthusiastic. The history was informative. Lots of time for photos. The pizza lunch on Mt Vesuvius was good. Unfortunately the trail to the crater was closed because of a landslide. We still went up to the gate. The drive is worth it. It’s not the tour companies fault that my dream trip didn’t work out as planned. I’m thankful we had good weather. Normally I’m an independent traveller. I booked a tour for convenience because so many blogs and travel guides make it seem like a hassle to do on your own. This was a relaxing and convenient way to experience this.
