Firstly, I needed to cancel a previous activity as bad weather required me to swap things around. It was as easy as pressing a button with the funds back in my account within 48 hours. Onto the rebook event, excellent communications beforehand via email, timings, locations, details, everything covered. On the actual day, following the superb directions, we found the car park and the meeting point easily where we met the organiser Francesco. His passion was incredible, his energy, the desire to ensure we had a good time, it was infectious. Pompeii was led by our guide Sergio, a knowledgeable gent who has taken part in excavations within Pompeii. He answered all our questions and would still be there with us now if we hadn’t booked other excursions. Francesco was our guide for Mount Vesuvius and he was so good, we’ve exchanged numbers and hope we meet in London. Would I recommend them, I already have plus I’ve booked ahead for different visits in 2022.
