  • Pompeii: Small-Group Pompeii and Herculaneum Tour

    1. Pompeii: Small-Group Pompeii and Herculaneum Tour

    This tour consists of a pleasant walk around the ancient Roman cities of Pompeii and Herculaneum, buried by the ashes of the volcano Vesuvius in 79 A.D. Your tour will be conducted in English, and will cater only to a small group with a maximum of 15 people. During the infamous eruption, Pompeii and its inhabitants were buried by tons of pumice and volcanic ash, which preserved many things and materials in amazing conditions.

Afterwards, take the Circumesuviana train leading to Ercolano (a 20 minute trip), where you will start your walk through the ruins. There, discover that Herculaneum is much smaller, but better preserved than Pompeii. While Pompeii had been covered in four meters of ashes, an avalanche of mud 20 meters thick had buried Herculaneum. Secon...

    Through the previous helpful rating comments I could tell more about this tour than the actual description of it. The description in my opinion should tell you that you are only picking up the tickets in Sorrento and that you then take the train by yourself. Arrived in Pompei we had to wait for 40min (they told us 20) for the tour to start. So I am not sure why you actually have to choose a time for it, because it anyway seems fairly random to me. They just wait until they have a bigger group together. And the group was big. Over 20 people. the most important thing though is, that the tour itself was really good. It was really at least 2 hours long (counting from the time you actually leave with the guide) and the tour guide was funny and knowledgeable. So at the end it was worthwhile.

An exciting encounter with history. The visit was well organized from start to finish and our guide-archaeologist Paola was a pleasant and very competent escort. More than 5 captivating hours despite the hot June day. My invitation is also addressed to other "curious" about culture (even if not experts like myself) to let themselves be guided in this positive experience.

Excellent tour!! Pompeii & Herculaneum are both fascinating and we’re particularly brought to life by our passionate guide Diego. He really made the day for us, best guide we’ve had it Italy. He was fun & knowledgeable. Thanks Diego! I would also say the tour is well structured, giving time for lunch etc.

We visited Pompeii and Herculaneum with Nello, a prepared, friendly and helpful guide. A really interesting and immersive experience! Really recommended to fully appreciate the historical and cultural value of the two sites.

Sergio is a very knowledgable and dedicated guide who showed us the forum, temples, theatres, public baths, a backery and thermopolium as well as many luxury villae. Thank you for this incredible experience. Katarina

Michele was a great guide. Funny and really knew a lot about everything, he patiently answered every question and otherwise told incredibly exciting things. Would recommend this tour to anyone!
