What people are saying about Pompei

This tour was the highlight of my trip. It was amazing how much we experienced in one day and I wouldn’t change a thing. The tour guides were very friendly and well organized. Vesuvius was a great way to start the day. Lunch at the winery was a perfect way to take a break and the food was delicious. We learned so much during our tour of Pompeii. Getting picked up and returned back to our hotel made things so easy. I would highly recommend this tour and would do it again if I return.

Experience with HP Travel was perfect from the pick up all the way to the drop off, the price was brilliant for everything which was included. Our tour guide Salvatore was extremely friendly and provided a great service and experience giving us great hints and tips throughout the whole day and ensures we got our transfer home safe.

We leave from Naples to admire the gulf and take wonderful photos. The circumnavigation of the island of Capri is done on board another boat. We then walk around Capri in complete freedom for the rest of the day. Upon returning, the sunset observed from the sea closes the unforgettable experience.

Great experience, to do Thanks to Marlène our guide on the boat who made the effort to speak to us in French when the experience was only in English, Spanish or Italian.

Well organized tour and with enough time to visit Capri
