This was absolutely an excellent experience. Lello, our guide was very friendly and knowledgeable. He taught us so much about Pompeii and Vesuvius. There is no way we would have ever known what we were looking at, or known all the small details if we hadn’t taken a guide… and Lello is the best! The driver was also very courteous and safe, and he got us to all our destinations very quickly. I highly recommend this tour to anyone who wants to visit the Pompeii ruins and Vesuvius while learning from a subject matter expert.

Very good experience! Anne our archaeologist guide is adorable, competent and passionate. My driver guide Catello is the soul of Naples. Very pleasant to listen to (as a guide too), nice car, friendly…, we don't see the round trip going. I recommend this experience although a little short with all there is to see and understand. 9.5 / 10

Beautiful experience. Wonderful Pompeii but you need a professional guide like in our case Elisa very good. Vesuvius there are no words unique emotion there is a lot to walk uphill but it's worth it
