We are indeed tour guides but first we are travelers. We understand there might be last minute unforeseen circumstances that might cause a change of plans. When we sat down to write our cancellation policy we decided to think to what Cancellation Policy we would like to have for ourselves for our trips.

The Roman cities of Pompeii and Herculaneum were buried in ash during the eruption of Mount Vesuvius in 79 AC, almost perfectly preserved for centuries until they became possibly the most important archaeological sites of the world. As the cities were suddenly frozen in time by the catastrophic eruption, rather than being gradually abandoned over the centuries or transformed by subsequent conquests, both were preserved in a state of "suspended animation”: houses, temples, baths, brothels, restaurants, and citizens were preserved under the ashes until being unearthed in 1748.

Take a day off and dive into the past to visit these unique and unforgettable spots. Pompeii is a very large site and it is generally believed to be more striking. However, as it was buried under a thicker layer of protective mud and volcanic ash, Herculaneum is much better preserved and it will be impressive to find out that a wide variety of materials, such as wood, were totally sealed and preserved. Choosing this tour, means you will not have to choose between the two sites, and you will start an incredible journey through the past with your knowledgeable private guide. 

After your private guided tour of Pompeii and Herculaneum, you will have lunch & time to recharge your batteries a little bit  to be ready for the trip up to Mt. Vesuvius. Your guided tour of Mt. Vesuvius begins with the slow uphill trip on the windy road until the parking lot to the crater. Then take a 30-minute Trek to the top, which reaches nearly 4,200 feet. The views and fresh air here are well worth the effort, as well as the impressive view of the Volcano mouth.

    I can vouch that the Pompeii & Amalfi Coast tour is definitely romantic, and highly worth the time and money! My wife loved it (and I did too!) Our driver picked us up and took us to Pompeii which was a dream of ours. Our guide met us there and took us through the ruins. Afterwards, she accompanied us to a great pizzeria - Naples style - which was great! After we said goodbye to her, our driver took us to Positano, where we took a ton of photos of the sea and did a little shopping before heading back to Rome. What a great day!

    What a trip! The day trip to Pompeii and Positano (and Amalfi Coast) is absolutely fantastic. From the time were picked up at our hotel by our private driver Franco we were well taken care of. Our guide, who we met in Pompeii, said we were visiting Pompeii at just the right part of the season- before the crowds and the heat! We took our chances with a bit of rain and were in luck as it was sunny and beautiful as we toured the ruins in the shadow of Vesuvius. After an amazing tour there, and some great pizza, gelato, and Italian coffee, we met back up with our driver for a stop in Positano- very beautiful and left us with memories for a lifetime.
