Great tour for seeing the key points of each site. If you want to be able to take your time and take it all in at each location, you’re probably better off going back on your own. It’s a bit of a whistle stop hotspot tour. Herculaneum is amazing, smaller and better preserved sites generally as well as being significantly quieter so you get a chance to really get an idea of the scale of the catastrophe, the human impact and the lives leading up to the eruption. Our guide was an archaeologist and had done some field work and project work at Pompeii and was able to give an amazing insight on a number of topics around both sites. Would highly recommend this joint tour in peak season to make the most of time and see the highlights of Pompeii when there are vast numbers of other groups and visitors on site.
Our guide Raffaele was wonderful, he welcomed my sister and I at the gate and spent 3 amazing hours taking us to all of Pompeii's highlights and some brilliant secret gems that we never would have found on our own. The whole time teaching us about the ruins, which he was so passionate about and had personally studied for years. He was able to tailor our tour to our own personal interests and was at all times very mindful and accommodating of my mobility issues. Our organiser Francesca was great, and even assisted us on our morning train route from Naples. We learnt so much and had an overall wonderful experience, my sister and I could not recommend it more.
This tour starts at Sorrento station - our guide accompanied us on the train, organised our entry and provided an interesting tour through the ruins, leaving us with extra time to continue exploring and a clear explanation of how to get back to Sorrento when ready. Our guide was very knowledgeable and we enjoyed the tour. The only drawback is the train itself - so nothing to do with the tour really - but be prepared , it’s incredibly crowded and hot and our return trip was about 40 minutes late.
I am Greek and this part of Italy is the best for me because it reminds me of my country(sun sea history food no stress) Amalfi coast is awesome and a must visit.It combines mountain and sea with Positano and Amalfi the best spots to walk relax and swim. And if Claudio the guide says 'swim' then do it us i did...octomber and the water was warm!!! Now i am going back to Greece to continue this life...ahhhh! Ps: get the boat ride for a different perspective of amalfi
This was an amazing day trip to Amalfi Coast. From the lemoncello factory along the coast to Positano and Amalfi Town, the entire day was one amazing experience after the next. Our guide Cesare made the trip funny, informative and his passion for what he does stood out as the group was constantly laughing. I would recommend this excursion to any of my family and friends and hope Cesare was the one to take them on the journey. Thanks again.
