Pompeii was one of the most beautiful parts of our Italy trip. We were told to bring a hat because there is no shade, but it was actually nice the day we went. If it’s going to be hot out, I would still say to bring a hat and water when you go because there isn’t much shade. Pompeii is beautiful and the English guide was great. I would go back again.

Our drivers were on time, friendly, and went through a lot of trouble to organise a wonderful trip. We saw the ruins with a very experienced guide, drove to the volcano and hiked all the way, then enjoyed a great lunch and wine tasting! We really enjoyed the trip and recommend it to anyone! Superb!

Truly excellent small group experience! Our guide was very knowledgeable and showed us around the site, pointing out some highlights as well as hidden gems that others may not see on their own. Highly recommend this tour starting at 9am as the site fills up and starts to get too hot after 11am

We were in a small group of 10 for our 2 hour tour, with 8 actually attending. Our guide was Melania and she was excellent, with great knowledge and very personable. Our trip actually lasted 2 & 1/2 hours, with us learning so much about Pompei and it’s history.

I had a wonderful time in Pompeii. Sasa was a great guide and would highly recommend him! Go in the afternoon if you can, less hot and more enjoyable.
