Pompeii is really impressive and the tour was the easiest and most comfortable way to get there and back from Rome. Unfortunately we had to do a sightseeing tour in Naples, although we hadn't booked it and it wasn't in the description. Actually, we had decided to do a pure Pompeii tour in order to have more time on site. Unfortunately, the expectation was not fulfilled.

It was great, everything worked out, no delays, the pizza was also absolutely delicious, make sure to book it. We also had a small tour of Naples and were still on the "balcony" of Naples, here we could get out and take photos of the view. Here we were already explained in German what we were seeing, etc. When we arrived in Pompeii everything went quickly because we didn't have to queue, we were 4 Germans and had a small group, that was great, the manager answered all of our questions Can explain and showed us a lot, we were in Pompeii for a total of 2 hours. Then we went back to the bus, which was also parked just around the corner. We also had a stop on the way there and back at a motorway service station, where we could buy something to eat and go to the toilet. We didn't have any intrusive sales shows or anything like that. All in all it was a really nice day, Pompeii is very worth seeing, definitely do it

Excursion was nice with dedicated tour guide and good guidance. Lunch in Pompeii was good too. For me the visit to Pompeii could have been longer and in Naples only a tour instead of the short tour.
