Overall was a very good experience, the guide and driver were very nice and friendly. However the tour guide didn't know that Herculaneum closed earlier in the winter and so by the time we got there it was already closed. The guide and driver did bring us to the museum of archaeology instead however this was very disappointing.
The perfect way to visit all three sites in one day. Guides were interesting and insightful at both locations. Our driver was very personable, knowledgeable, and driving in his car was very comfortable and convenient!
Saw only 2 out of 3 places- driver did not give clear instructions or offer any support. Poor service and value for the price.
Our 20year old became ill following Vesuvius climb and Michael was there every step of the way as we sought help for him and he translated when needed. Could not have had the assistance of a nicer man.
Unser Guide Massimo war kompetent, freundlich und ist auf unsere Wünsche eingegangen! Wir waren überaus zufrieden. Der Vesuv ist angeblich bis Ende August gesperrt, auf Grund der Waldbrände. Die gewonnene Zeit konnten wir gut nutzen für Pompeji und Massimo zeigte uns auch noch eine Gemmen Manufaktur, wo wir eine kleine Vorführung erhielten, sehr interessant. Danke Massimo!
After some hair-raising driving along the Amalfi Coast Road it was a pleasure to be picked up by Tony WorldTours Belardo and driven to our various places to be visited. During the drive Tony kept us informed about the surrounding areas as well as the history past and present. He was an Encyclopedia of information. On top of this he kept us cool and hydrated with cold water and a well looked after vehicle. In all a good experience!!
We had a great day . The driver Vinsenso was wonderful and did everything he could to help us .The guide he got for us in Pompeii was maybe the best but after seeing adverts in Sorrento etc we felt we were overcharged by your company. A wonderfully day .
Massimo war ein guter und angenehmer Fahrer,der stets bemüht war unsere Wünsche zu erfüllen .
Lino Simeone was super considerate. It was looking to be a very hot day so instead of Pompeii, he suggested climbing Vesuvius 1st. GREAT CALL. The breeze definitely made the high rocky hike more bearable. Wear good shoes for this. Then at Pompeii we lost track of time, took a bit too long and he was in no way perturbed. In fact after the hike & 3hours in the sun at Pompeii, he took us to this beautiful winery at the foot of Vesuvius for a delicious lunch, Vesuvius wine tasting & a mini tour of the winery, which was very interesting! Perfect timing & enriched the ecperience further. Next was Herculaneum, which is a smaller site & just breathtaking with bodies frozen in time. Spent about an hour 15 there. At the end he dropped us off where we needed. Overall it's understandable why most people only see 2 out of the 3 (especially since Pompeii is HUGE) but well well worth us being beat. SUPER worth it! Plus Lino gave us some interesting information on Naples & had a GREAT personality
Very friendly driver, Lino, who helped to arrange a guide to go around Pompeii (a must), and took us to a vineyard for lunch and wine tasting.
It was a great sughtseeing experience with a very knowledgeable and very friendly driver
Zwar war die Auffahrt zum Vesuv leider nicht möglich, da das Winterwetter einen Strich durch die Rechnung machte, dafür hatten wir für Pompeji und Herculaneum mehr Zeit und Massimo gab uns jede Menge Informationen und Tipps. Danke nochmals für den netten Service!
I was with my son in Naples and had just one day to visit Pompeji, Mount Vesuv and Herculaneum and I was glad that I found this tour for us. I also bought online tickets for the sights. Vincenzo our driver picked us up from our hotel in a Mercedes van at 8.00 am in the morning. He was very friendly and drove us quick and safe to Pompeji while giving us already information on Naples. He also organised a private tour guide for us. As I wanted to make the most of my stay I did not check other options but that might be recommendable. After our visit to Mount Vesuv he drove us to a nice restaurant for lunch. At Herculaneum we could take our time although we were a little late. He brought us to our hotel at 5.00 pm. My son and I had a great time with a great tour.
It was a very full day but well worth it. Our driver Angelo was awesome, his English was excellent, and his driving was careful and amazing - he negotiated us through the crazy Naples peak hour traffic, and some very hairy situations involving coaches on hairpin bends on Mt Vesuvius! He personally walked us to where we had to go each time, and was able to get us in front of the line for most things which saved a lot of time. Pompeii was incredible, but we found the audio guide a bit confusing and feel like we missed out on a bit, even with the 2 1/2 hours we had. We hired a guide to take us around Herculaneum later in the day and that was completely worth it, we wished we'd taken up the offer of a guide for Pompeii too. The hike up Vesuvius was tough but not too long, and the views of the crater and the towns below were amazing. Angelo also booked our lunch at a restaurant on the mountain where the service was slow but the food was fantastic. A very worthwhile and interesting day.
Da wir nur eine Woche in Neapel waren, hatten wir das Ziel, möglichst viel an einem Tag zu sehen, ohne Stopps bei Sponsoren oder Mittagessen. Wir hatten uns daher gut auf Herculaneum und Pompeji vorbereitet, benötigten keine Führung oder einen Audioguide, sondern konnten gezielt unsere Schwerpunkte ansteuern. Zwar waren die Englischkenntnisse unseres Fahrers sehr dürftig, aber dafür gibt es ja den Google-Übersetzer, der ihn daran erinnerte, daß nichtalkoholische Getränke inclusive seien. Flink stoppte er an einem Geschäft und kaufte Wasser, ein Stopp an einer Pasticceria füllte während der Fahrt zeitsparend den Magen. Da sich die Staus in Neapel in Grenzen hielten und auch keine Schlangen an den Eingängen waren, hatten wir in Herculaneum 1,5 Std., auf dem Vesuv 2,3 Std. und in Pompeji 2,5 Std., was für unser geplantes Programm ein hohes Tempo erforderte, um trotzdem an den Besichtigungspunkten in Ruhe Details sehen und fotografieren zu können. Empfehlenswert!
Great guide who gives u good amount of information before dropping you off at locations. Mercedes was a nice suprise too
