Great 'must see' locations, more time would have been nice ...

Herculaneum is well worth a visit, the site is much smaller than Pompeii and although the allocated time is 2 hours, to do it justice 3 hours would be better. We didn't get 2 hours, because the bus was late and the skip the line queue was long! Suggest you hire an audio guide or buy a guidebook. There were no free 'English' leaflets on the day we visited which was a bit disappointing. Vesuvius is also well worth a visit, you need to be fit and able to walk uphill for about 30 minutes on loose volcanic stone, and you need good sturdy walking shoes. It provides for a good workout though, I certainly ached after the climb! Note this is not an organised tour. This tour uses the services of a local hop on bus service. The bus transfer from Herculaneum to Vesuvius was packed and people had to stand. The bus was changed enroute, at the wine tasting stop, this was supposed to have been a 30 minute stop, but they only stopped for 15 minutes. No time to buy lunch.

Jasmine, our guide and the driver Domenico were so friendly and skilled. I highly recommend this tour with these two to guide you through the day. The explaining in the explored areas were fantastic, english was very good and the mini-van spotless clean and comfortable. I was way beyond my expactations!!

Great trip well organised with a well spoken bus driver

Although u never got a guide on the trip to take you on the bus it was well worth doing. The bus had a guided talk as u went along and the driver always helped with meeting times and information needed. Both places were great.

Catching the bus was easy and the lady doing the ticketing was very helpful. The fact that it was a Hop on and Off bus was suprising but ended up being great.. we took a train from Rome to do the tour and had a great day.

It was a smooth and comfortable trip. Mary Angela was our guide and Mario out driver. They were fun, and I really enjoyed the trip!
