"Very punctual, friendly. Rosa is very warm and takes care of all the details. Bruno, the Pompeii guide, is also very attentive and knows very well both the history of Naples and Pompeii itself. It was an excellent and unforgettable trip. Totally recommended. It's all day, you leave at 7:30 am and return at 7:30 pm, but it's well worth the effort to go. "

"Booking was easy, bus on time, guides were knowledgeable and entertaining. Bus was comfortable. The only disappointment was lunch. We were in Italy, Naples no less and it was not the best. Beer was warm and the experience was very “tour for the masses” like. "

"We enjoyed this tour very much. We were staying in Rome. We met at the meeting point and took the bus which was very comfortable and cool stopping for a break and driving through the beautiful city of Naples. Pompei was amazing. We will definitely plan to return as one day is not enough for Pompei. We recommend this tour to everyone. "

This was a waste of time for me but perhaps others enjoyed it. The ruins themselves are amazing. Tour guides excellent. All in all a worthwhile trip "

"The trip was very well organized, with stops on the way for a break, and to view the bay of Naples, the surrounding islands and Mt. Vesuvius. The guide in Pompeii was excellent, and he provided important information. I would have preferred to be 20 min. longer in the excavations, rather than in the Cameo shop. "

"Great day! Bus was waiting at pick up point and was nice and clean. The guide spoke good English just took a bit to get used to her accent/pronounsiations. The stop halfway was really nice for a coffee. You need to pay at the till for what you want then take your receipt to the counter to order. The restaurant we stopped for lunch was just outside the ruins of Pompeii. We had a choice of pizza a drink and ice-cream which were all very good as we were hungry. Next onto the tour of Pompeii our...
