Absolutely Incredible Day - Highly Recommend
, Jun 2022
Our tour of Pompeii yesterday was incredible! We were picked up by Fabio, who was the kindest driver and wonderful person. He drove us safely to Pompeii and was a delight to chat with and even stopped on the way back for us to get gelato! There we met with Carmine, our tour guide who was fantastic. He knew anything and everything there is to know about the history of Pompeii. He was so passionate in the way he spoke about the landscape. He was such a kind hearted person and taught us so much. He answered every question we had. We are so happy we could get to know him and learn from him! I would highly recommend this tour to anyone looking for a great time. We loved every minute!!!
Book this tour!!

This was a fantastic tour!! It’s difficult to get around in Positano so I loved that this tour handled all transportation needs. Our tour guide Roberta was knowledgeable and I loved her high energy. Pompeii is HUGE so she makes sure you see all the most important sites and is full of fascinating facts and stories for everything you look at. My husbands favorite part was Mount Vesuvius. You’re able to go right up to the crater! Be sure to bring a jacket, it’s chilly at that elevation. This tour was a nice change of pace from the Amalfi coast for something really unique. I’d highly recommend!!
Our guide was great!...

Our guide was great! Carmela was knowledgeable but not annoying. Planned our time perfect. She is the best! The restaurant- complete disappointment. Not organized, food is below mediocre. You have to beg people to bring you cheese to your pasta. I’d rather had sandwich from the vendor on the street.

Ornella and Luigi were great. I dont recommend drinking the wine for lunch if you are going to hike Vesuvius.
Amazing hospitality and genuine laughs

Hugo, our Pompei you guide, was extremely informative, patient with my photos, tailored the tour for us, and exceptionally personable with quick jokes. Salvatore, our driver, was a quiet, genuinely pleasant man with an easy smile. We enjoyed their company immensely and would recommend both to anyone and everyone.

Roberta was a fantastic tour guide - very knowledgeable. Roberta was happy to help with any questions. With Vesuvius, it's 100% worth taking this tour as tour groups are dropped off much closer to the top and tickets are sorted for you.
An excellent day out
, Aug 2020
A brilliant day. A driver collected me from Positano and dropped me to Sorrento to meet the group/tour guide. Roberta, our tour guide throughout, was excellent. She made you feel very welcome and gave lots of interesting information. Pompeii was fantastic. Vito, our tour guide, was excellent. Be prepared to be walking for around 3 hours though (bring sun cream and water!). We had free time to eat in a variety of places before going to Mount Vesuvius. Hiking up Mount Vesuvius was a special experience. Thanks all for a great day!

This was a great tour! Plenty of time in each place. Pick up and drop off was on time. Our tour guide Ornella was extremely knowledgeable. Pompeii and Mount Vesuvius is a must see.
One of my favorite experiences in Italy!
, Sep 2019
This was one of my favorite experiences in Italy! The Pompeii archeological site was really cool and well preserved. The climb to Mount Vesivius is pretty intense but definitely worth it to see the scenery on top. Definitely recommend!
Excellent Tour
, Jul 2019
Our tour guide (Gennaro) and driver (Carmine) were fantastic and really made every effort to make our tour enjoyable and memorable. They paid particular attention to the well being of our 2 young sons and were very inclusive of them .
Wonderful tour!
, Jul 2019
This small group tour was everything we hoped it would be. Our tour guide Daniela was very nice and knowledgable. In the limited time we had in Pompeii, she took us to the most interesting sights and explained everything to us in great detail and so it was quite the educational experience. At Vesuvius, she explained the natural surroundings and we had time to wander around the crater and take in this impressive sight. Our driver Carlo got us around safely and punctually and we felt were in good hands. All and all, a very great day trip to one of the most fascinating archeological sights in Italy and a great chance to get up and close with a volcano. I would recommend this trip to anyone who's considering this. Thank you Daniela and Carlo for a wonderful day!
Trip to Pompeii and Vesuvius
, Jun 2019
We really enjoyed this trip; the only downside was that our guide stopped guiding us when we reached Vesuvius and did the climb. (She stayed in the bus.) The tour would have been better if she had continued with us up the volcano and provided more geography/history commentary along the way.
This is the one to pick!
, Jun 2019
Great day tour from Positano. Easy to get to meeting point in town, walkable from most areas. Save a lot of money over private transfers. Great tour guide for Pompeii. Our group was small in early June, 6 total in a big van. My Vesuvius was a fun hike up a well trodden wide path with good views. Right price point, drove straight to sites. Guide knew her stuff!
Too many people / inaccurate description
, May 2019
Pompeii and Mt. V themselves are fabulous, but we booked a ‘small group’ tour. Well, there were around 25-30 people, it was very hard to hear out of the headsets and the pizza included WAS NOT part of the package. We all sat at a subpar restaurant and paid 14 EUR for either pizza or pasta. Our tour guide was super friendly, cute and knowledgeable. We both feel like we missed some key areas of Pompeii. I saw other tour guides talk about things that we did not hear. However, I was very grateful to have seen Pompeii and Mt. V.

Dear Traveler, thank you for taking your time reviewing our tour. You can see from our website and brochures that the descirptions of the tours are accurate, the maximum number of passengers is 21, the buses longer than 8 mt cannot get into Positano, it's forbidden so we could not operate this tour with a bus of 25-30 people. The lunch /pizza is not included and thi is stated in all our webistes. Sometimes, due to the brokerage with some online sellers, there is a lack on information. Can you please contact us at ? so we can figure out where did you book the tour and fix any issue. Pompeii is a huge archaeological site, and we should highlights all the "not to be missed" areas in 2 hours of walking tour, to explore the whole extent it can take more than 6 hours. We hope to hear from you soon. Kindest regards, Graziana
Pompeii and Mount Vesuvius
, May 2019
We thoroughly enjoyed our Pompeii and Mount Vesuvius tour. It was really interesting to be immersed in the history of Pompeii and imagine ourselves back in the time. Our tour guide Roberta was excellent and gave us a nice taste of the flavor of Pompeii. The trek to Mount Vesuvius was a long one, more walking and steeper than I imagined it would be. Good shoes are a must as the trail is often uneven and rocky. It is easy enough to do for anyone in reasonably good shape and the view on the way up and once you get to the top is nothing short of spectacular, well worth the trek. Lunch between Pompeii and Mount Vesuvius was a bit of a cattle call and the food was just so so, but it was inexpensive (just 14 euro) and we were hungry, so it was all good. The bus was prompt and comfortable and the drive from Positano was beautiful too.
Great tour & excellent tour guide!

I really enjoyed this tour. Amanuela (sp?) was our guide and she was great. Very informative and had a very sweet and funny personality. When I asked her about her experience, she said she's been doing these tours for 9 years, so I knew we were in good hands. She told us exactly what was going to happen during the tour and even though we were seeing the "highlights" of Pompeii - we gained a lot of knowledge from it. We had beautiful weather for Pompeii but it was more cloudy and cooler on Mt. Vesuvius. The climb to the top is definitely worth it (but also a bit of a challenge)! Overall - if you have a free day on the Amalfi Coast - I recommend this tour 100%.

This tour was well planned and very interesting. They arrived on time. Carmela was good tour guide with lots of information. Time was spent wisely seeing all the highlight. The walk up Vesuvius was a little challenging but definitely a must! They really could do without the pizza stop not worth it.

We met the bus at Pompeii because it was much less of a drive for us. The bus was on time. Our guide was very good. The only thing that might have been better was the weather. It was very hot and there is no cover within the ruins. That aside, it was an amazing experience walking through the ruins learning about their way of life, the diverse population, etc. The ride up to Mt. Vesuvius was a learning experience as were able to see the ash that covered the mountainside as we drove up. Many of us sat at the little cafe/gift shop as others climbed to the crater. Returning to Pompeii, we had lunch at a restaurant. It was clean and cool but the lunch could have been a bit more interesting. We were at long tables - the servers brought plates of slices of pizza. There were four of us at the end of table. The plate given us by the server had three slices of pizza. Later they brought another plate with three more slices. This service could be a bit better. Overall, a wonderful guide and tour.
Wow...fascinating tour
, Jul 2018
My family loved Pompeii. It was a very hot day and there isn't much shade so you need to be prepared to sweat a little (a lot), but its worth it. So cool to see an actual Roman city and walk the streets like they did. The hike of Mt Vesuvius is a little daunting if you aren't in shape, so be for warned, but the view a the to is tremendous and really puts this whole story into perspective. Our guide was great, as always.
