Good quality trip, well organized and planned. Mena, the tour guide is the star of the show. She is willing to go a step further to tell you the story and make you comfortable. The lunch was extra €15, at the local restaurant with beautiful views of the Naples Bay and included salad, cheese/meet platter, pasta or pizza, desert, local red wine. Service was friendly and really good deal worth every cent. That lunch helped to kickstart the ascent to Vesuvius crater. Overall the trip was above my expectations, highly recommended.

Overall this was a great tour! Our guide and driver were outstanding, very funny, entertaining on the bus ride to Pompeii, and very knowledgeable once we arrived to the ruins and Mt Vesuvius. Now, my only complaint was that come lunch time, they do pressure everyone on the tour to have lunch at the restaurant they stop at which is 14 euro per person, and it is family style so no you can't share. They give you about an hour for lunch, so we walked down a little ways and got sandwiches/chips and drinks for about 10 euro total. Im sure the tour company has a deal with that restaurant. You are better off packing your own lunch or walking down sandwich shops to save money. Once to Mt Vesuvius, it felt like we had too much time there. We made it to the top and back and still had over an hour to spare, so we went to the bus to wait, as did most of the others on the tour. I felt that time could be cut down.

Great guide despite the torrential rain

We went in May and had the worst rain and storms during our 3 day trip, which was a shame. Pompei was impressive, although the crowds were unbelievable and a future visit I would take out of season. Vesuvius was shrouded in cloud so could not see the crater or the view of Naples but our guide was very good and gave us lots of information about the volcano and Pompei. The coach pick up point from Sorrento was at a bus/coach station and maybe the arrangements for where everybody should wait could have been better, as everybody seemed to be walking around (in the rain) trying to locate their vehicle
