You will see the well-preserved Roman city of Pompeii, which is located on the slope of the still active Vesuvio. You can also stroll around the ancient ruins, learning about the history of this amazing site.

I would really recommend this tour. We just had to turn up at the train station in Sorrento and everything else was organised, and I must say superbly so; including return train tickets, and entry tickets to Pompeii (skipping the queue) with an added audio guide to ensure we could always hear our guide. Pompeii is a must visit and our guide was informative, interesting and funny. A fantastic day out!

This was an excellent tour. Everything was organised from the time we met the tour guide at the train station until she signed off after our tour in Pompeii. Train tickets were handed out to all participants, and we were accompanied on the train by the guide. The guide was friendly, helpful, and extremely knowledgeable. 10/10.

Well organized and got the most out of the time you have (about 2 hours only in Pompeii). And the tour guide Gino was the best anyway! If you have the chance - ask for a tour with him! He knows Pompeii (which is really huge!) like the back of his hand and knows the best way and gives the best information where others wander around for half a day!
