Tour was marred by chaotic start - nearly 2 hours picking up.

The tour was very slow to begin the outward journey; it was unfortunately extremely hot and Pompeii was crowded with visitors, mostly in big groups. The guide was very good & gave a radio commentary throughout this part of the tour. The site of the ruins is worth a visit, but you must expect huge crowds. Lunch was OK, but too far away from the site so more coach time. Also the menu was unclear for showing spaghetti with tomato sauce, which was a meat sauce and not suitable for a vegetarian or a catholic Friday. The second part of the day to Herculaneum was much much better - less crowds and the site very much better preserved. Would recommend this part of the tour rather than Pompeii. The guides were both very good. BUT the organisation of the initial picking up must be improved because that was very poor.

Great tour and a great guide, This is an amazing bit of history.

Excellent tour from an archaeologist who worked on the site, lots of information, facts on how the excavations were done and the content and background to what we were actually seeing. It's incredible that this place is so intact after over 2000 years. Guide had brilliant knowledge of the different sites that were along the coast. I must say she was very attentive to us as visitors during what was a very hot spell at 40 deg C making sure during the tour that we had lots of water and broke up the tour by getting us into the shade to cool of. Me and my daughter thought the tour was worth every penny and would do it again when we bring the rest of the family there.

Perfect guidance with clear, competent and comprehensiv informations

Our guide Luciano Leone fulfilled our expectations completely. As empassionated archeologist working in Herculaneum he knew all about this site from his profession. Very polite to seniors, friendly to children and adults showing us additional illustrations and photographs! Luciano gave easy to understand explanations to all relevant topics like the eruption of the Vulkano Vesuv, the life of the ancient inhabitants of Herculaneum, former buiding architecture, paintings and many more. We were totally confinced having choosen the right provider and had a great day at Herculaneum.

Great day, informative and a must do when in the area

We arrived at Pompei early which was great - we got there before most of the crowds. Our guide, Laura, was great - really knowledgeable and highlighted all the key parts of the site educating us about the history as well. Would also recommend this tour as it was definitely worth visiting Herculaneum, which was very different to Pompei. We had pre paid the entrance fees but most people on the tour hadn’t - make sure you bring cash for this! Laura had a great temperament and did a really good job - she made the tour.

Dr Luciano Leone provided us with a wonderful tour of Herculaneum.

Our tour was well organised and led by a highly knowledgeable and personable guide. Luciano brought the ancient city to life, so we could imagine being there and he added some humorous anecdotes along the way. He was passionate & enthusiastic about the archeological history of the site and described the various discoveries in a way we could all understand. The tour was well paced & comfortable, with plenty of stops in the shade and the 2 hours seemed to fly by.
