Trip starts at Sorrento train station. There was someone waiting for us as arranged, checked our names off and gave us wrist bands for easy identification. Guide (Anna Luisa I think) bought our train tickets and showed us to the train. Small old train for locals and tourists- gets busy. Try to be early - 2 in our group arrived 5 mins before train so had to stand for the 1hr to Herculaneum. The guide told us when to get off (Ercalano) and guided us on 15 min walk down hill to the site. No queus at Hurculaneum, guide bought our tickets and in without queueing. The guide was excellent - clear, informative and interesting information all through the 2hrs plus walk round the buildings. Walking is on uneven cobble type stone with steps and high kerbs- wear sturdy footwear. Take water as there is no place to buy on the walk. Getting back is on your own. Two trains didnt arrive so very busy - stood most of way back to Sorrento. Would I recommend- definately- had a laugh about train.
This tour starts at Sorrento station - our guide accompanied us on the train, organised our entry and provided an interesting tour through the ruins, leaving us with extra time to continue exploring and a clear explanation of how to get back to Sorrento when ready. Our guide was very knowledgeable and we enjoyed the tour. The only drawback is the train itself - so nothing to do with the tour really - but be prepared , it’s incredibly crowded and hot and our return trip was about 40 minutes late.
We had transfers to Pompeii from Sorrento included and this made it very easy as the ticket office is next to the train station. Guide is very informative and goes at a leisurely pace. Takes you to all the major places of interest and at the end of the tour suggests other sights in Pompeii that you may wish to see yourself. All in all a great tour for a small cost
This was a good trip which was very well organised, the guide was knowledgable and pleasant. On the whole a good day out at a reasonable price. The train journey back to Sorrento was a disaster although the tour company had no control over this. The train company need to do some work on this for the locals as well as tourists
Maria was an exceptional tour guide and provided lots of information regarding the archaeological site. Tour is very good value for money.
