Meet up at Roma Termini was easy and the train accommodations to Napoli were very clean and comfortable. The trou of Pompeii was fun, engaging, and full of fascinating info from our stellar guide, Antonio Mosca. Gorgeous sunny weather for Dec 20th and plenty of time for pictures and questions. The lunch at DeMedici was lovely and very tastefully conducted with the sommelier leading us through the wine tasting. My husband, 18 yr old, and two 13 yr olds all had a wonderful day and enjoyed the trip immensely. It was a highlight of our week in Italy.

Simply outstanding! The guide Michael had great knowledge and insight. He gave a historical, archaeological perspective. He brought the streets and houses to life with his engaging narration. He gave a vivid account of the devastation caused by the volcano in the lives of the people. Couldn’t have expected anything better!

Well organized tour of Pompeii and Herculaneum despite the full house linked to the bridge of the saints. Our guide Edoardo Miguel was very thorough without boring. We recommend it.

Alfredo was an excellent tour guide! He really made our visit to Pompeii and Herculaneum an amazing and memorable trip
