What people are saying about Villa of the Mysteries

Vincenzo was excellent (he lived in New York)! He even offered to let us contact him later in our trip for restaurant recommendations. It was a treat to be escorted by a native driver in a clear, cool car. The day was very well organized and efficient — we could not have planned all of these activities ourselves, and each part of the day was just as fun as the last. I recommend paying extra for the guide in Pompeii, as she provided additional context that we would have otherwise missed. Make sure to budget an additional €75-125 per person for the tickets and food (or €225-375 total). All around, it was a fabulous day!

The trip was brilliant. We were only staying in Naples for 2 days so had to make the most of it. It was great that the tour included some of the sights of Naples before going onto Pompeii. Our guide Elise was fab. She had some great stories and knowledge. After the guided tour we stopped for a pizza and a beer before being assigned to our new tour guide for Sorrento. It was only ourselves on the tour, so Helga showed us a few sights which was great, as it was only us we asked if we could just relax with a drink and enjoy and the amazing view. The whole day was great and would definitely recommend!

The tour is very complete. But the best without a doubt Andreas our guide in Spanish. A great expert and connoisseur of history. We loved everything he told us. The small intra-stories of Pompeii and Naples. highly recommended

Excellent organization, perfect tour to discover Naples, Pompeii and Sorrento in 1 day. Kudos to our guides and drivers.
