Feel your excitement heighten as you approach the sites of the miraculously preserved, 2,000-year-old ruins and commence a guided tour of the Herculaneum area.

One of our most favorite tours we took the whole month we were in Italy. The history is amazing. We only scratched the surface of Pompeii but would not have wanted to miss Herculaneum, though smaller it is better preserved. Lunch was very good and we had a great day. You would not know what you were seeing with out a great tour. Our guide was very good and really knew the history.

The tour we were on was a great experience and our tour guide SUSAN was excellent,very informative and knowledgeable.Both sites in one day is hard work but is also well worth it.All in all a great tour .
Exhausting with many areas unseen
, Oct 2019
This excursion is not for those who are not in good physical condition: walking many ours over stones and uneven levels and climbing stairs. If you have a guidebook you realize that many of the sites were NOT shown on this tour. However, a knowledgeable guide is good to have. We appreciated that. I suggest one should not schedule back to back 8 hour tours of Pompeii and Herculaneum followed the next day by a tour of Rome.
Great docent

Sasa did a great job. We really enjoyed the tour of Pompeii and Herculaneum. His knowledge and humor were great. I would recommend this tour.
Wonderful visit, incredible place

Christy was our guide and she couldn't have been better. Her depth of knowledge was incredible and she voice was so pleasant and soothing to listen to. It was a wonderful day and we would have wasted a lot of time it without a guide because the place is so enormous one doesn’t know where to start. I felt we had an excellent understanding how Pompeii was prior to the eruption thanks to her insightful guidance. Highly recommend the tour and try to get Christy if possible.
Great tour with knowledgeable guide

Great tour, Dino our Guide was so enthusiatice and knowledgable. We were pleased we chose a tour that covered Pompeii and Herculaneum in one day with the same guide, as Dino was able to highlight similarities and point out differences between the two sites. A great visit, than you
Pompei and Herculaneum

Great tour, with knowledgeable guide. Pompei is a large area, but the guide was there to point out the major highlights of the area. The guide provided a good glimpse into how daily life was in these areas.

Always wanted to visit Pompei and Herculaneum and this is the way to do it. Lots of people but being with Sip the Line we avoided all the queues. Martina our guide was excellent with great knowledge and was quite humorous as well. Highly recommend if you are doing this tour then do it with them.
Excellent tour

Pompeii especially is massive and unbelievably crowded in August. Our guide kept us together and moving, providing interesting commentary throughout. Pacing was good and the included lunch, quite surprisingly, was great. Only downside is that the guide was not particularly interested in fielding questions, providing very terse answers and returning immediately to her script.
