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!

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.

very interesting visit of Pompeii, wine tasting and meal a little long mounted on Vesuvius exceptional, tasting and meal a little long
