Being such a huge history and archeology geek, visiting Pompei, the city destroyed by Mount Vesuvius in 79 AD, has forever been high on my list of places to see. After what looked like a lifetime of waiting, I finally got to view it, walk the ancient streets and absorb the history of this legendary city. After the delightful lunch, climbed to the top of Mount Vesuvius which was an iconic experience! Francesca, our guide, deserves the first place! She’s very detailed in her explanations about the history of Pompeii and her enthusiasm for what she does makes the tour fabulous. She knows everything about any monument or general building or that you might stroll past on the tour. She’s an illustrated, great guide, deliciously funny and I’ve been lucky to have her! It was an unforgettable trip!

Perfect way to see Pompeii and Vesuvius. Stress free as picked up outside a nearby hotel and taken directly to each attraction. Guide was informative around Pompeii and much needed as it was a large attraction - visitors had maps but there weren’t information posts around the attraction so without the guide you wouldn’t know what things were. Lunch was included - pizza or spaghetti at a restuarant outside Pompeii. Well organised. Road to Vesuvius very windy so travel tablets recommended if you don’t travel well. Plenty of time to reach the summit and return. Unfortunately weather wasn’t the greatest when we went, very misty so we couldn’t see out over Naples but that’s always going to be a risk on the day. Overall a well organised tour. We were so glad we did it this way.

Pompeii exceeded all expectations, the guide was phenomenal, explaining in detail the life and society of Pompeii. Lunch was to choose between pasta and pizza. The Vesuvio tour did not go so well… when we entered they said we had 1:30 to meet again, that is, we entered at 3 pm and should be back at 4:30 pm. It turns out that right at the beginning we were told by the park rangers that we needed to leave at 4 pm. The climb takes about 30 minutes, take some photos and descend took the full hour. People who climbed up behind us were no longer allowed to go to the top from Vesuvio because of the hour. The agency that took us didn't know about the time constraint. There must be better coordination between the park and the agency to prevent some of the visitors from being able to complete the experience
