This was a delight. Our guides, Jon and Martha were bother fantastic. Climbing the mountain was hard but totally worth it! Make sure to go when the volcano is open - I think it would have been a bit underwhelming without that.

This is a long day of touring but it is a GREAT way to see Pompeii. We had great guides and saw and learned a lot. It was neat to be able to climb Mt Vesuvius. Having a guide take us through Pompeii really maximized our time and elevated the experience. The pizza lunch was clearly a tourist trap. It was a huge reception hall with hundreds of other tour buses. Not a very local dining experience. I still think it's an amazing to see Pompeii from Rome and I would recommend the tour.

No trip to the West coast of Rome would be complete without visiting the Tyrrhenian Sea coast, to tempt fate by climbing sleepy Vesuvius then to tread on the cobblestoned streets of ancient Pompeii as it's ill-fated inhabitants did nearly two millennia ago but now with a local archaeologist. Our tour guide for the day Roberto was knowledgeable and engaging and was a perfect fit. Although the obligatory lunch stop served very disappointing Neapolitan pizzas, worse still was finding a Starbucks inside Pompeii built on the site which had been the womens' bathhouse. If this is how we treat world heritage sites there is no hope. Putting these minor gripes aside, this full day trip into Campania was both exhilarating and informative made possible by our expert guides and driver.

This tour was definitely the highlight of my time in Rome. So glad we took it, just wished we took it at the beginning of the trip as we might have spared ourselves some bad experiences in the city. The guides/hosts were wonderful, friendly and enthusiastic, learned all sorts of things from them. And, of course Pompeii was absolutely incredible.

We had an amazing time in Pompei Vesuve. Well organized, our guide from City Wonders was instructive and funny. This tour is one of the highlight of our travel.

The local guide in Pompeii was excellent. The guide was knowledgable and was also skillful in moving us from one locale within the ruins to the next. Lunch was very good and despite the rain, I enjoyed the climb up Mt. Vesuvius.
