Sadly expected more from Pompeii. Very crude, only saw one deceased and I expected more. Also very impressive. Completely different architectural style than Rome, but definitely worth it. Vesuvius was a climb, but you had enough time to get up. Provided in good condition

Well organized tour. Prepared and friendly guides. I advise. The price is worth the purchase. Organizing yourself does not spare. Here they come to pick you up and bring you back ... No worries, they do everything themselves.

A very rewarding day. The guides are very knowledgeable and attentive to our questions. Well organized and no waste of time.

All 3 of the activities were great- they were all with different guides.

Great attention to detail and very knowledgeable guide. Recommend it!
