Excellent value for money

Clarissa the english speaking tour guide was excellent, she sorted the ticket out for my daughter, she also sorted out tickets as apparently we had only booked a guided tour and not the entry ticket!

Amazing trip

Was the best trip I went on whilst in Rome. Inspiration behind decorating my cat Caesar’s litter tray with Roman columns!

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).

Easy bus trip from Rome. The only tour I could find that gave plenty of time to explore Pompeii (others seemed to be just a two hour stop). Nice host on bus. Enjoyed the day.
