The tour was very good. Unfortunately on the Day the weather was terrible, which resulted in the Vesuvius part being cancelled. We did however add in Heraculaneum, which was quite impressive. The only issue was there were quite a few additional costs throughout the tour that were not stated on this website prior to purchase

We had a great day. from the departure from Naples until our return, we appreciated the welcome at the meeting point with Rosa and Rosario the driver to put us at ease; the visit of Pompeï with a guide who speaks both English and French. Light lunch provided, but we found it ok as we ate to our satisfaction. The afternoon also magnificent with the ascent of Vesuvius to the crater. Thank you very much Rosa for this beautiful day. We recommend+++

Very good excursion with very good guides and very good guide. Especially a big thank you to our guide for Vesuvius who is passionate about his city and very kind. On the other hand a lot of side like the entrance of Vesuvius and finally the entrance of Pompeii if you want to see everything... After that remains pleasant and everything is organized for our comfort.
