The tour is exactly what you are looking for. The tour guide was very knowledgable, the driver was excellent and prompt. Although if you're hoping to see every corner of Pompei, I would recommend booking separate tours to stay in the site longer. But I will say that Herculaneum is as beautiful and impressive (if not more) than Pompei. Overall, I highly recommend this tour.

Vincezo is a superstar and a comedian in desguise! We are so glad that we were with him the whole day in Pompei and Herculaneum, learnt so much about the history, architecture, art and traditions from him. You rock Vincezo!

Fantastic tour. Really fascinating places to visit and Michele the guide was full of knowledge and experience. The day flew by so quickly we were all so engrossed. Very highly recommended and excellent value for money.

I liked it a lot, punctual, friendly, very well organized for such a visited place. There is not much time to see the cities but I understand that it is to be able to see both. Amazing experience.

An adorable and fascinating archaeologist guide. Nice discovery of the sites Attention It is very very hot at this time
