Informative, amusing and a true Italian experience!

The whole day was well organised and I felt as if our guide was really caring about our group; he made sure we were comfortable and we clearly understood what our next steps were. The sites were truly amazing and astonishing, however if Ugo, our guide, had not conveyed his passion and care for both Pompeii and Herculaneum I don't think I would be so inspired and truly interested as I am now. A really good experience all round. Thank you!

Enjoyable trip to Pompeii

We booked the trip to Pompeii and Herculaneum. We were picked up in a minibus by our guide Fabia. There were only 8 of us in the end. We were looked after very well. Our guide was very knowledgable about both sites and made it very interesting. Having the earphones made it easy as we could always hear wherever we stood. The restaurant we were taken to at Lunchtime was perfectly fine. I would recommend seeing the sites this way as Pompeii especially is vast and a guide made it so much easier.
