Excellent package for a family ; very well organized; We had a private mini bus and a private tour guide, excellent with 20+years experience; we could not wish for more; strongly advise a guide as pompei ruins are huge ; also fast track pass was very handy as were a lot of tourists The lunch and wine tasting was excellent; beautiful restaurant It looks expensive but we were completely satisfied; money well spent

fantastic, well organised trip. The tour around pompeii was so well guided. Very informative. the trip to the volcano was not for the faint hearted. Its a walk which takes about 40 minutes but it's all up hill. That said, it's worth the effort. the trip to the vineyard and lunch was excellent. the whole trip was well organised. Very professional and would highly recommend.

Highly recommend doing this tour! The guided tour of Pompei offered good insight and knowledge of the history of the town. The walk up Mount Vesuvius is a little taxing (takes about 40 minutes) but is well worth it once you get to the top for the views! And the wine tasting and lunch really topped off a great day, is well worth the money

Very precise meeting point. Buses on time. New and very comfortable bus. Very friendly guide. Excellent restaurant suggested after the visit.
