Well organised and stunning experience

We got collected from our hotel at the agreed pick-up time, got taken to Pompeii in a group of about 16 people. Our guide Daniella was amazing - her English and instructions of the structure of the trip was very clear which made the experience so much more enjoyable. She informed us about places of interest on the way there in a knowledgeable way which we learnt a lot from. Her knowledge of Pompeii was fascinating and it was clear she loved her job and made everyone feel relaxed. The tour lasted for 2 hours at Pompeii which was enough time to move around the site. We then had 40 minutes lunch break before being taken up to the top of Vesuvius on the serpentine windy road. We had to walk the last bit to the top by ourselves which took about 25 minutes. The view from the top was stunning and there were a few places at the crater to buy refreshments. The climb was very steep, dusty and slippy so ensure you wear sensible footwear for this part of the trip. Overall we would highly recommend Italy XP and we are hoping to re-visit Sorrento again and wouldn't hesitate to book further excursions with this company.

A day filled with history!

Good trip. Tour guide was very good at explaining. She did a good job of explaining where to go and keeping the group together. I want to give a special thanks to the bus driver who left us off in the town where we were staying because of the train strikeouts the way back.
