What people are saying about Villa of the Mysteries

We have just returned from our visit to Pompeii and Vesuvius it was wonderful. Our driver Max was on time and the vehicle was clean and cool. Max was lovely and an excellent driver we felt completely safe. Drop offs and pick ups were close to each location and it was reassuring to know we had an air conditioned vehicle to come back to on a hot day. I would suggest you ensure you have cash to pay for drinks and souvenirs on Vesuvius as the connectivity for card transactions can be patchy. This has to be the best way to organise your visit to what are obviously very popular sites. My husband and I would definitely recommend. We return home to Nottingham tomorrow with very happy memories.

We had amazing day with our driver Pino, I highly recommend this trip. We visit amazing cities and we take pictures of the incredible spot highlighted from our local driver. He share interesting information about the Amalfi coast and for all beautiful places. I really appreciate the energy and enthusiasm of our driver Pino, which complies with us and creates an amazing atmosphere. Thanks to the driver Pino, I was out of breath several times looking at the beautiful places we went through. He speak English perfectly and he is very communicative, this is another positive part that helps to create excellent experience. Regards Nelina

The history and architecture of Pompeii were fascinating but Mount Vesuvius was definitely the highlight for us! A fairly easy 30 minute hike to the top of the crater with spectacular views in all directions. There is a souvenir shop at the end where you can buy trinkets and enjoy a glass of wine or a beer from the top. Our chauffeur Guido helped make for a special day. He was friendly and informative and provided some very useful tips.

Fantastic tour, well organized and truly VIP. We had our own Mercedes Bus with only 4 pax and in Pompeji our own guide for just the two of us. Marianna our guide was knowledgeable and empathic, a borne guide!! Also single table for lunch (which was tasty) and Trip up to Vesuv is a adventure. You see it all. Would recommend this package for sure, worth the money.

We had a fantastic day, a wonderful tour guide Federica Belplato, who gave us an unforgettable day, highly recommended. Because the two of us had booked this activity that day, we got a private tour from her and it was great in all areas! Thanks Federica, you did a great job!
