The trip was brilliant. We were only staying in Naples for 2 days so had to make the most of it. It was great that the tour included some of the sights of Naples before going onto Pompeii. Our guide Elise was fab. She had some great stories and knowledge. After the guided tour we stopped for a pizza and a beer before being assigned to our new tour guide for Sorrento. It was only ourselves on the tour, so Helga showed us a few sights which was great, as it was only us we asked if we could just relax with a drink and enjoy and the amazing view. The whole day was great and would definitely recommend!

The bus came to the port and picked us up. Everything was very organized. The guide in Pompei (Eliza) was absolutely amazing. Elga and the bus driver for Sorrento were very helpful and polite. The overall experience was very good and I would totally recommend this excursion.

very organized team, all guides very nice and with fantastic stories for us to tell. nice ride and full of interesting things. good food included in this tour, also great pick up service and we were able to take our luggage to get off in sorrento

Excellent service, the guides both from Naples, Rita. As in Pompeii Michele. And Stefano and Alex, in Sorrento, all 10 points, very professional and always willing to help with anything we needed. Highly recommended experience.
