The Pompeii portion of the tour was very thorough, and the guide was very knowledgeable and friendly. There was a stop in a jewelry store which, while interesting if you’re into that was not advertised as part of the experience and a bit unnecessary. That being said, it didn’t ruin the experience for me! The lunch was good, nice pizza. There was also a quick stop in Naples which I thought was cool. Would recommend.

Bus was comfortable, enjoyed the short walking tour in Naples. Good pizza for lunch. Before entering the Pompei ruins we were taken to a jewellery making area with shops selling jewellery. 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

Good, the theme is very cool, the guide explains very well; the stingy food (they are very unfriendly, they refuse to offer coca-cola zero or saccharin, that is, diabetics have it bad) and it is little food. Later, before entering Pompeii, they put you in a CAMAFEO shop under the excuse of “cameo school”….you can tell they want to sneak it in…
