Very organized. Maria is excellent at keeping group together and very knowledgeable. I felt maybe she was a little overstretch as our group was Italian and English speaking, so she had to say everything twice, but she handled with grace. Herculaneum was better for me and I did feel a little rushed through there. All in all ways excellent .

A day to go back in time. Impressive discoveries. A group of 6 great tourists, a perfect and considerate driver who took us and brought us back to each hotel in a very comfortable vehicle Two attentive and friendly guides The top ... almost two points to improve: Ask for the sites in advance to be visited as a priority (villa of mysteries for example) to the various participants for a real à la carte excursion. lunch: at the price of the reservation for this full day, a more authentic and less banal small meal would have been appreciated rather than this large group restaurant, a little tourist factory. Might as well leave the freedom to the participants to eat before Herculaneum. Thank you for this moment and your responsiveness to my questions before departure.

Luigi, our driver, was great! Went out of his way to call out landmarks and share information about anything we asked about when we were driving around. Marina, our tour guide, was extremely knowledgeable about everything Pompeii and Herculean! She was awesome. Would highly recommend this tour to anyone looking for a way to learn about Pompeii and Herculean!
