Great
This is my 6th tour with Walks/Devour out of Rome and I have been thoroughly impressed with every one, as you can see from my previous reviews. I only have one criticism of this particular tour (Pompeii with Vineyard Lunch), and it is in relation to our lunch served at the vineyard. The antipasti plate was tasty; however, the pasta plate (which was the only other savory course served for lunch) was cold, small, and rather flavorless. I am a lover of pasta and have prepared most of the popular Italian (Roman) pastas myself, so I felt they could have done so much better. It was close to two o’clock, I believe, and everyone was starving when the food began to arrive. A few touches like fresh bread on the table, perhaps some Parmigiano Reggiano or Pecorino Romano on the pasta for a bit more flavor, etc. would have made a big difference. When we did ask for cheese, they brought us little packs, like you get at a fast-food restaurant. Everything else was perfect. The guide was knowledgeable and personable. The setting was idealic. The wine selections on point and delicious. With a bit more attention, the lunch could have met the standards of everything else. Thank you! I am grateful to have found you after listening to Untold Italy podcast and will continue to recommend your company.

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 There were so many interesting facts and historical references.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.
