Fantastic day. The driver was excellent. He met us in Naples, took us to Vesuvius, an excellent restaurant for lunch, Pompeii, and then back to Naples. He was pleasant, helpfully answered our questions, and pointed out interesting sites along the way. We arrived everywhere on time. The van was clean and comfortable. He deserves five stars. The guide at Pompeii was also excellent. She gave us an exceptionally informative and entertaining tour. She was articulate, engaging, and knowledgable. She deserves five stars. The local company was also very helpful and professional. Its representative quickly responded to my messages confirming the time and place of pick up and even had the driver meet us on the platform at the train station. The local company deserves five stars. The local company representative, the driver, the guide, and the driver all spoke good English. We would happily work again with the same local company, driver, and guide.

Perfect way to see Vesuvio and Pompeii in one day. We also booked a lunch at a wine farm which were amazing. Both driver and guide were superb. All in all a great day.
