Went October 22. Bus arrived on time and was big and spacious and host was very friendly and helpful. He spoke 4 different languages and was very entertaining on the long journey going there. Unfortunately we left on a morning shrouded in thick fog that didn't clear until we reached Naples. Naples is such an experience by itself and I will definitely visit there in the future. However Pompeii is everything I wanted. It was a very hot day and the fog had dissipated. Pompeii is huge, just be warned. We didn't choose to have a guide and went at our own pace. What a place! Truly an experience that will stay with you. Bring water. And prepare to walk alot over very uneven terrain. It's worth it though. The city is so well preserved and every corner makes you aware of its once bustling history. Got some food outside the grounds and was allowed back in by a kind doorman. This whole trip was worth every penny and I would highly recommend it to anyone interested.

We only took the Pompeii entry and transport option. Our host (can’t remember her name) Was brilliant even when we got stuck in traffic very apologetic and kept us entertained, explained where to go etc. we didn’t opt for the lunch but pizza by entry was only 9 euro

Well organised coach tour. The coach was comfortable, we had a stop each way. The guide Anton provided us with interesting landmarks. We felt well informed about timing and meeting points. I would do it again.

Everything worked out great and our tour guide Alexander tried very hard to take care of us. We booked the transfer and then explored Pompeii ourselves with an audio guide.

Professional, well organized, friendly. Relaxed, pleasant atmosphere throughout the trip, clear explanations, well-timed stops.
