Hike up Mount Vesuvius and then explore the UNESCO-listed ruins of Pompeii on a must-do day trip from Rome! Going at a steady pace, the hike includes a walk on the ridge of Italy’s famously feisty volcano, allowing incredible views down into the crater itself. Head to Pompeii to see the havoc that Mount Vesuvius reaped on it in AD 79. Tour the UNESCO-listed excavations, seeing fossils and well-preserved ruins while hearing the horrors that befell this intriguing ancient city.
Mt Vesuvius is inaccessible from November 9 to March 27. During this time, the hike is replaced with a visit to the iconic City of Naples. We’ll take a panoramic bus tour and have some free time to walk around the city centre.

Good day out. Our guide (forgot her name) was very good,, great knowledge of history, passionate about it and excellent English. First we went to Pompeii and spent 3 hours there. I would have preferred this part to be guided. I suppose if you are already quite knowledgeable and just want to see the ruins it's good, otherwise you're looking at a lot of ruins not knowing much about them. If I coutour.more

Our guide, Angela, was absolutely amazing. Super friendly and knew about literally everything. She was really enthousiastic and you could really notice that. We had a great day in Napels and it was fantastic! We saw lots of places and then drove to Pompeii. Our guide there was also amazing. You could ask him whatever question and he knew the answer. The day of this tour must have been out besttour.more

The visit to the Pompeii ruins was one for the books. Our visit to Naples was short but equally memorable. We thank our tour guide, Matteo, who was very good and accommodating. We likewise express our gratitude to our local tour guide in Pompeii, Enrico, who was funny and very good.
We recommend this tour.

Good tour, value for money and the guide (Andrea) and transport were fine. It is a long day under any conditions and delivered the Pompeii highlights as promised. Be aware it is limited time at the ruins and given the size you only hit the highlights and insufficient private time to see vast areas of the ruins. Food was good but I have to say both the rest stop and lunch restaurants were 2 of ttour.more

Great tour, full of information, and Pompeii is such an interesting site. Meeting the tour is super easy, with no hassles whatsoever. The bus is comfortable, and there are opportunities to stretch, get food/drink, and find a toilet throughout the day. Robert is as much host as guide, and it would be difficult to find someone who is any better. Great value!

My husband and I did our tour this week with tour guide, Anna and driver Antonino. Anna was very informative and friendly and Antonino did an amazing job behind the wheel. The drive was a little long but that is out of their control, Pompei is closer to Naples than Rome but it is much better to stay in Rome than Naples. For our tour guide in Pompei, we had Giorgio who was very well versed in thtour.more

The tour was ok , the lunch was delicious, but in general it was rush, the stop at Napoli was a disaster, the bus stopped by the pier, very long and very fast walk to the plaza, not enough time to enjoy and spent 20 minutes to go to the bathrooms and no bus ride around the city. Walking back to the bus was worse, like running a marathon. Not what was advertised.
