Brilliant trip, well organised, easy to locate meeting point. Valentina was a fantastic guide, lots of facts and upbeat on the very early start. There was a chance we weren’t able to get to Vesuvius due to the weather impending but we did manage it. Pompeii was fantastic, would’ve liked a bit longer there as so much to see but we knew it would be restrictive.

Fantastic tour and a great value for money! The tour bus was comfortable and the lunch provided was delicious. Our tour guide, driver, and tour operator were all incredible and the tour was informative. Highly recommend
