the transport and our guide, Simone and Cristina, very well, kind, attentive and considerate. The local guide, Guido, perhaps it was not his best day, his explanations would have been better if he had provided scientific explanations, information from archaeologists, he lacked updates and a better willingness to answer questions from the group.

It's a good experience overall! It's almost a 3-hour trip to Naples, with a stop for breakfast in the middle; the tour x Naples is from the bus, it's not very deep, I expected more... Then we continued to Pompeii where we had lunch (very rich and abundant) and then to get to know the city. The tour with a guide lasts 2 hours and is great, but it is very little time to explore in depth... Finally 3 hours back (again in 2 batches, with a stop for a snack in the middle). I consider that it is x the tour that I chose, but I would have preferred to spend more time in Pompeii and visit it more. Last thing: the heat in summer is overwhelming, if you can choose whether it's spring or autumn... I hope it works for you!

The overall trip was very good however our host had to translate three different languages on the trip. The fact that he had to translate three languages took away from the experience as by the time he translated we were passed the spot he was discussing. It would be better if they could limit the translations to two languages
