The two attractions (Pompeii and Vesuvius) were both really well organized with knowledgeable guides. We also got to skip the very long lines. The lunch was awful. They sold the story of a family owned vineyard where the food is home made. We were squashed into a glass room with no aircon or ventilation with about 80 other travelers and made to wait over an hour for average tomato sauce pasta. We tasted 3 wines but no one explained anything about them. Skip this if you can.

Very convenient as they pick you up and drop you off from the hotel. But it is longer than 8 hours (from 7.45am to 7.45pm incl travel time). Maria the archaelogist tour guide at Pompeii is knowledgeable and passionate - love her!). Paula the day’s tour guide had lots of little interesting facts as we travel from place to place. Pompeii itself is very interesting! The climb to Mt Vesuvius is a little steep for about 20mins but the view is worth it. An experience we won’t forget!

The tour of Pompeii is a bit short for the size of the place, but it was kind of nice that way. You could try to see it all but it all starts looking the same at some point. The guide was great and very knowledgeable. Definitely would recommend. The luck was fantastic and the views from the volcano are exceptional.
