Short trip but good

Overall it provided a well transportation from naples to pompei for lunch then a drive up the mountain. Other than that, no real commentary from guide on the mountain and history etc. Could be more. But overall well organized, guided spoke English very well and were energetic :)

The organization of the tour was not good. First we were taken from Naples to a restaurant in Pompeii. We set there for at least 1.5 hours, apparently waiting for another group that visited the site. Then we had a long walk to the bus to the Vesuvius. During the trip there was no explanation about the mountain, the eruption, nothing. When we arrived to the site we had to run very steep slope up the mountain to get to the top. There we were told immediately to go down, since the site was closed an hour earlier due to an event that took place there. Overall we spent half a day for few minutes at the site.

Please save yourself the money and go your self yourself. The bottom line is that when the weather is horrendous rain, wind, cloud, snow this tour should NOT be ran. - But they take this risk! We were so apprehensive and worried as to why the tour continued, we had an awful experience with this company, did not see one thing and were told the whole time normally you can see this, but not today Infact the weather was that terrible I could not see my partner yards in front of me. I understand the weather is unpredictable and this is nobodys fault but as a large company, the morning of this tour they should have CANCELLED the tour for everybodys safety and Italian experience. The man who worked in the shop of the Volcano even told us he did not know why people were allowed to come up as it had been closed and just reopened due to that they thought the weather was going to be better - they were mistaken. It was dangerous, scary and a complete waste of time. Please find an alternative way to do this tour and do not book far in advance because if you get bad weather they will still continue the trip in dangerous conditions, take your money and you will be worried, you will NOT see one thing, no crater, no view, not even the person you are with.

The tour was great and above expectations with knowledgeable guides. What really took it over the top was the unfortunate fact that the summit was closed due to safety concerns of excessive winds blowing visitors and Viator offered refunds or retrips the next day. Thank you for a great experience.

Great experience to go up Vesuvius however, the coach was far too hot (air conditioning!? What air conditioning?) The guide was not a tour guide; she pointed out 2 things on our drive up to Vesuvius, that's it! Not enough time to climb up the volcano either.

Had they been telling us how the tour will be handled we shouldn't have booked this tour. Instead of taking us direct to Mt Vesuvius, they collected us from Naples at 12.30, drove to Pompeii and handed over to one lady. After 10 min walking and 15 min waiting on the road side, she handed over us to another lady. Again walking for some 15 min in the sun, she herded us into a restaurant for a useless pizza I have never eaten such a bad margherita before ! No choice! and around 45 min waiting! Then, again walking to the parking lot and finally boarded the bus. At the base of Mt Vesuvius we were told you have one hour to go up and come back!! Overall a horrible experience. I advice people to use Circum Vesuviana to conveniently enjoy your trip.
