Excellent tour and guide
Andrew_Y, May 2022
Our tour guide Francesco was excellent! Very friendly, informative and fun. In particular he was very aware of the various walking abilities of the group, especially given the difficulty of the climb, and stopped appropriately on the way up. His information and stories/knowledge was excellent. Highly recommended as a tour.
Fun and informative

Francesco hat diese Tour wunderbar unterhaltsam durchgeführt! Mit Leidenschaft hat er uns vieles über den Vesuv und die Region erhält. Er war sehr hilfsbereit und hat uns sogar bis zu unsrem Parkplatz gefahren. Die Tour ist sehr empfehlenswert.
