Pompeii from Rome

The tour takes a rest stop at a little family store coming to and from Pompeii and the store owners are quite hostile if you don't by anything. Other than that the tour guide is great and so is Pompei

Much better than expected!

My thought when I saw the price was we’d only get a busride to get us to Pompeii and back! But I was pleasantly surprised! Claudia, our tourguide, was absolutely magnificent and gave us plenty of information, tips and hints. She helped us in every way possible and was willing and able to give more information about Rome (the place we stayed).

Excellent tour with an excellent guide

Emanuele, an art historian, was full of knowledge about all of the art and beauty of the Vatican, including the special visit to the Bramante Staircase. He paced the tour well and was able to keep the group together and moving efficiently despite the crowds. Excellent tour with an excellent guide.
