The tour went very well and everything was on time. It was a pity that with the tour in German, only the tour in Pompeii was in German (bilingual), the tour guides for the rest of the day only spoke English. That should have been mentioned in the advertisement. I had to translate all explanations about the region and Mount Vesuvius to my companions as they do not speak English. Otherwise everything was great and also very nice guides. The way up to Vesuvius is strenuous, but absolutely worth it. Lunch was good but service so-so. mass processing. Nevertheless, I would recommend the tour.

Amazing experience, bus tour guide was very friendly and picked us up on time. Had an on route brief sightseeing tour to Pompeii, tour guide in Pompeii was incredible so knowledgeable and made sure all the group were together at all times. And lastly mount Vesuvius wow what an adventure! Make sure you wear a comfy pair of shoes the last 280 to the summit is not for the weak. The Bus driver was honestly the best driver I have ever seen and the food can’t forget the food at the foot of Vesuvius so amazing. The overall trip in my opinion is hugely underpriced for what you get and would encourage anyone thinking about it to do it and I can promise you, you will not forget it

A well-organised, interesting and pleasant excursion. We were picked up at the hotel and went to Pompei. No use skipping the queue when there was none. A great guide took us around for about 2 hours. Then it was lunch at a vineyard, quite ok, nothing special. Three different wines and a dessert wine are served with the food. After the meal, part of the group went on to Vesuvius. A very steep road up to the crater, took about 20 minutes to walk. It was windy and visibility was poor, which was a shame. Then we went back to Sorrento again. Took about 10 hours in total so we were home later than expected.
