Our tour with Annamaria in Pompeii and at the Sorrentino Vesuvio Winery was fantastic! My friend and I had the most magical adventure. Annamaria is so incredibly knowledgeable of all the history of the area. She shared this with us all along the drive. We were so comfortable—with numerous bathroom breaks and opportunities to stretch out our legs. Our guide at Pompeii was top notch! And our driver, Marco, was so very courteous. We had a beautiful lunch in view of Mount Vesuvius and learned about the vineyards of the Sorrentino Vesuvio Winery. It was so peaceful and relaxing, no crowds. We had personal attention, great views and wonderful company. We also stopped for espresso on the way back to Rome. Another stop with magnificent views of the Bay of Naples. The very best part of our excursion, however, was Annamaria. She was so kind and so engaging with us. She shared stories and cultural anecdotes. We felt she was more of a friend than a guide. It was an absolutely amazing experience and I hope to do this again!

The Pompeii tour is amazing. Seeing the city and having it explained to you is so much better than just wandering through. There were so many interesting facts and historical references. The lunch was phenomenal. Each course, the wine, the view, the service - phenomenal. An amazing day.

Our day with Walks to Pompeii & the winery on Vesuvius was perfect! It was HOT with little to no shade in Pompeii- amazing site to see but not for small kids as my 7yo was done 85% thru. The winery was outstanding! Their farm to table charcuterie & pasta were delicious! The wine was excellent & we shipped some back home! Very pleased with this day!

This was a wonderful day spent exploring the magnificent site of Pompeii and learning all about the fascinating history. Serena, the guide at Pompeii - was very passionate and showed us some of the best highlights. We were a very small group and really could get a better sense of the place. The winery on the slopes of Mount Vesuvius was an excellent way to end the rest of the day, the lunch paired with the unique wines is definitely an experience worth having. Chiara our guide throughout the tour was an excellent host.
