Reviews

Loved the places. The tour leader (Teresa) and tour guide (Francesca) were really great.

Pedro Ribeiro

The tour was a good value and had the best availability during the off season. The tour guide was good and informative but not par...ticularly outstanding. The pick up was a bit late but they were very kind,even doing some drop offs in front of restaurants for people to have lunch. Vesuvius was closed due to snow and the guide offered to do the first part of another tour in sorrento in place of Vesuvius which was quite nice. more
