Good day

Full day excursion taking us to Pompeii in the morning and Vesuvius in the afternoon. Prompt pick up with clear instructions on where that would be. Good guide providing lots of information. Well timed and value for money.

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.

The tour of Pompeii

Great day all around. Lia, our guide was very informative and did a great job of keeping our group together. The trip up Vesuvius was marred by the lack of any comfortable and adequate facilities at the bus stop-off point. It could be much better and I realize it is not your responsibility - but the tourism bureau for that area should be looking into it. I work in the tourism industry and there is potential for much better impressions.
