What people are saying about Posillipo

The trip was brilliant. We were only staying in Naples for 2 days so had to make the most of it. It was great that the tour included some of the sights of Naples before going onto Pompeii. Our guide Elise was fab. She had some great stories and knowledge. After the guided tour we stopped for a pizza and a beer before being assigned to our new tour guide for Sorrento. It was only ourselves on the tour, so Helga showed us a few sights which was great, as it was only us we asked if we could just relax with a drink and enjoy and the amazing view. The whole day was great and would definitely recommend!

We really enjoyed our day. The tour in Naples allowed us to quickly discover the city, and the visit to the cathedral was very interesting. Our guide Elisa was really great, she then made us discover Pompeii, she was perfect, with history of the place and anecdotes. Pompeii is truly amazing. Then supported by another person to climb Vesuvius. The time provided for the ascent and descent is just right (less would be insufficient). You have to be in shape, it climbs. Everything was smooth and well organized. I recommend.

The tour is complete and allows you to visit some of the most interesting places in Naples (the Duomo with a guided tour or a fantastic view from Posillipo), important archaeological (Polpeii) and natural sites (Vesuvius and its crater). Great pizza (included in the price) in a restaurant on the way to Vesuvius. Added value to the tour is the excellent competence and friendliness of the guide Alex

The visit is essential, well organized and super interesting. Our guide in Spanish, Elisa, was very friendly, extremely entertaining and interesting, showing great culture and a lot of passion for her work. An unforgettable visit.

I am very satisfied as everything was well organized and followed step by step. Pickup done at convenient place at time, no delay. Well Done!
