I went with my wife, boys 13 and 11, mom, and in-laws, they all enjoyed the trip to Pompeii, and Naples, they enjoyed the lunch which featured a few different pizzas. The guide was very patient and knowledgeable, and the driver was good about stopping at scenic stops for pictures.

Fantastic trip - highly recommended. At Termini, a guide was ready and accompanied us to the train. In Naples we were received by sweet Marina - a well-prepared and skilled guide. She could tell the story of both Pompeii and Naples.

Well organized tour, punctual, precise and very helpful guide, the hours flew by also because the descriptions of the monuments were intertwined with local fables and customs. She will be a young, witty and very helpful guide

The tour was very interesting and touched on many points of Naples... not only cultural but also typical of modern Neapolitan culture. The guide Eduardo was excellent…prepared and kind. I recommend it to everyone

Two routes, but few departures. When the city gets busy in summer, it can be difficult to get a spot.
