Our visit to Pompeii and Vesuvius was amazing and it was great to have transportation to and from Naples. Our guide showed us all the highlights of Pompeii in the 2 hours allotted and shared some great historical information. Though we wished we could've had more time at Pompeii (no fault of the tour company), we had an amazing experience! We had plenty of time at Vesuvius to summit and enjoy the views and even a glass of wine at the top! My only complaint would be that the transportation process could be improved, as we spent a significant amount of time to allow people to change busses or coordinating who should be on what bus when. Overall would recommend this tour!

I really enjoyed the trip, the organisation was excellent and it was very handy being picked up and returned to the cruise port for this excursion. We climbed Mount Vesuvius first. The bus takes you 90% of the way there (the views on the journey are stunning). The climb to the top takes about 20-30 minutes depending on your fitness. My husband did it in 20 mins, I took 30mins. I would consider myself unfit but its very do-able and feels rewarding at the top. Lots of old people and young kids on the walk. The pizza afterwards was delicious and service was good. The Pompeii ruins visit feels a bit short (2 hours) but if you are only looking for an introduction to Pompeii this is perfect for you. We had 2 teenagers with us and it was the perfect length of time. If you are a "history buff" and this will be your only visit to Pompeii then this might not be the right tour for you. Francesca was the tour kids for pompeii and she was excellent. Very easy to understand and funny.

Brilliant excursion and communication for pick up. Fair bit of time wasted while the guides tried to organise everyone in between excursions. Lunch was very rushed as the restaurant we ate at didn’t take lunch orders until we arrived. Considering there are only 3 choices, it might have made more sense to take pre-orders with the amount of visitors on yours they get.
