What people are saying about Pompei

This was a really fun way to spend the day. We started out visiting Pompeii. We started really early and were in ahead of the crowds which was awesome. We then went straight to Vesuvius and were given a little over an hour to hike to the top and get back down. The hike was a lot harder than I expected (for someone who is not super in shape), but I am glad that we did it. It was a beautiful at the top. I did notice that it is really hazy over Naples and our guide mentioned it is like that in the fall. The haze didn't ruin the view, but I wish it was clearer. The pizza afterwards was delicious. While eating we had a chance to chat with other people in the group. It is nice to talk with people from all over the world. Overall a great experience.

I enjoyed the guided tour. Our tour guide at Pompeii was amazing and was able to answer all the questions we had for him. It never felt too rushed and we were able to appreciate the history of the city. Vesuvius was quite enjoyable. We enjoyed the hike to the top. The only thing I’d say is that the microphone on the bus was quite muffled and I missed some information because of this. The guide was lovely and very kind.

The tour was very well-organized and everything went smoothly. Our guide in Pompeii was amazing and she was full of deep knowledge about the ruins. The tour leader and our bus driver were very professional and helpful. I would recommend this tour to everyone. We had a great experience, thank you for doing a great job

Definitely worth your while! Both Pompei and Vesuvius were amazing to visit in person. Special thanks to Gabriel for making this experience even greater, he deserves a lot of credit! If you are in the area, just go for it! Kind regards from

The driver was very friendly and efficient with pick up/drop off; guide at Pompeii was knowledgeable and entertaining. Pompeii and Mount Vesuvius exceeded all expectations!!
