Horses, wine, and history…what not to like?
Kendall_M
, Jun 2022
Such a fun experience! Gennaro’s enthusiasm was infectious and his brother Giuseppe’s kind and gentle demeanor was appreciated. Our itinerary was flipped around due to the best plan to avoid crowds and it was a brilliant idea. We rode horses through the vineyard first and had a lot fun. The horse farm is very charming, clean, and the horses all seem very well cared for. Giuseppe offered us lots of cold water and an espresso - both very much appreciated. Gennaro drove us in their brand new van to a gorgeous winery for the wine tasting and lunch. Six wines and very tasty and plentiful food. A lovely respite. We enjoyed the olive oil, vinegar, and a few of the wines enough to arrange for shipment home to the States. We were then driven to meet our tour guide Manuela for a private tour of Pompeii. The crowds were mostly gone so our tour moved swiftly. Manuela was friendly and very knowledgeable. It was an enjoyable introduction to the history of Pompeii. All in all I would definitely recommend this excursion while visiting Sorrento or the surrounding area.

Highly recommended! Best way to cover everything. My wife and I were hesitant to spend a good part of our day on a tour but are glad we did. Starting in Pompeii, the communication was great and easy to find our guide. Our tour guide “Tony” is a 3rd generation archeologist at Pompeii with knowledge that had other people not with us listening in. He covered most if not all of the major parts and was very funny. When the tour needed the transportation to the winery was right there when we finished, no waiting. Took us to this beautiful winery with amazing views. The host there was very informative about the land and wines. The meal was filling and delicious but most of all the wines oil and vinegar were the best we’ve had in Italy. Following the winery we were taken to the stables where we met with our instructor who was really really great. She greeted us, prepped us for the ride, then took us along the most beautiful horseback ride. We traveled through vineyards, fruit trees, and alive trees around Mt.Vesuvius on healthy, kind, and amazing horses. Stopped for photo opportunities and a snack of apricots. English was easily understood on all parts even our transportation driver was kind and very informative of the region. Sorry for the long explanation but couldn’t recommend every part of this tour any other way. This really made our trip.

Incredible Pompeii Tour

This started with great 2 hour tour of Pompeii with a very knowledgeable guide on a very hot day! We were disappointed to travel in a non air conditioned van to the winery but thoroughly enjoyed the food and wine provided! Everything was fresh and delicious! The air issue was remedied quickly on our trip to horseback riding which was much appreciated! Our guide Giuseppe was phenomenal and went above and beyond to make this nervous rider feel right at home! The views were incredible and the borders were beautiful and very well trained. Thank for a wonderful day!!

Dream tour in Pompeii
Sean_M
, Jun 2022
Wonderful day in Pompeii. We hired an expensive car from Rome to Pompeii, but took the Trenitalia (train) back and was far less expensive, faster and easy to use. The Pompeii guide was remarkable on this hot day, and showed and explained the best parts of Pompeii. The lunch and wine tasting at Russo Vineyard was fabulous and felt like family. Finally, our horseback ride through fields of vineyards at the foothills of Vesuvius was magical; be sure to wear a lot of sunscreen and have a hat on this tour. It is dusty but worth it!

Ciao Sean, Thanks a lot for this review, we're extremely happy that you said it was a "Dream Tour" , a little sad about the four stars, but I'm sure you clicked wrong, it was a pleasure to meet you! Kind Regards Giuseppe

Great “Pompeii in a Day” Type Tour
Amanda_L

We had an amazing tour guide (Manuela) who was very knowledgeable and gave us time to take pictures and ask questions. She helped direct us to the vans that took us to our wine tasting and lunch which was done very nicely and the food was great. We were then taken to the stables via van to tour around the vineyards from which their house wines were made from. They made sure everyone was comfortable with their horse and continued to guide those even after we were out and about. This was a great set of tours and I highly recommend it for anyone looking for a day in Pompeii activity!

Unbelievable. Once in a lifetime memory. Would recommend to everyone. Pompeii tour guide and horseback riding guide were sensational. Fascinating Pompeii information (who knew they had fast food back then?) and incredible horseback ride through the wineries overlooking the Sorrento coastline and Mount Vesuvius. Must do.

Amazing day all around. Pick up was easy at the market, but leave yourself 20 minutes buffer for the train. It will be very packed on the way out so prepare yourself! Tour of Pompeii was two hours but gave a great overview and some unique perspectives from our guide. For us, this was the right amount of time, but if you’d like a detailed tour you will need to spend more time. Winery and lunch were fantastic as well. The wines were very good and the food freshly prepared with accommodations for vegetarians, if needed. Honestly, I’m not a horseback person but decided this was too unique to pass up. Sofia was absolutely amazing and we had a phenomenal experience with the beautiful and very well trained horses. The landscape is absolutely insane and we loved every minute of the ride through the vineyards. The ride was just the right length of time for beginners with excellent hospitality all around. All in all, fantastic tour and I would highly recommend it to those looking for several experiences in one package.

This was so incredible. Our guide in Pompeii was funny and knew her stuff! Great to see the highlights of the area. After taking the vans to the farm part, they were very accommodating and helpful with the horses. The ride was incredible! Then, after taking the vans to the winery we got a short tour and a great meal with some great wine! Would do this again!

We actually had our experience switched with the 2 vesuvian wineries tour. The Pompei portion was short but there was bad weather and our guide Teresa did a great job! We had a lovely time at the wineries getting to know our companions on the tour.

Highlight of our trip! Fantastic experience. My teen daughter and I traveled on a mother-daughter trip. From pickup to drop off, this almost day long tour exceeded all our expectations. It started with an engaging and highly enjoyable tour of Pompeii, followed by wine tasting and delicious lunch (with wonderful wine pairings) at a winery with windows overlooking Mt. Vesuvius and, on the other side, the island of Capri, and then a lovely hour long horse tour through a picturesque vineyard at the foot of Mt. Vesuvius. .

3 Students Exploring Italy
Grace_H
, Mar 2022
I went on this tour with 2 other friends, and it was amazing! As 3 students traveling, it was great to have guides throughout the experience, and we learned so much about the history, food, and culture of Pompeii. It was really worth it for the price as well. The hosts of the tour were very accommodating ( we had some dietary restrictions and also forgot to buy a ticket until the last day! ) The day starts with a guided walking tour of the ruins of Pompeii. The guide was very knowledgeable and the group was only 4 people, so we got a more personalized tour and all of our questions answered. After, we had a short tour of the vineyard on Mt. Vesuvius by another guide who was also very knowledgeable about her field. We were given a wine tasting and served a three-course lunch that was very delicious! The horseback riding was amazing. The views are beautiful, and the guide makes it seamless for beginners. It was easy to find our first guide at the beginning of the day and we were always escorted to our next activity by friendly drivers. We were able to get to know each person who guided or drove us and they gave us great recommendations for restaurants and attractions to visit during the rest of our stay. I would highly recommend this tour for a well-rounded perspective on Pompeii!

Best birthday trip!

I went to Italy for my 30th Birthday and my first plan was to go horseback riding. I found this tour that combined the riding with going to place I've always wanted to see, the Pompei ruins. At the ruins, Manuela was amazing, showing us all kinds of cool things and I learned so much! Riding with Sofia was also great, the horse I got to ride was the sweetest horse, and I got a little tour of the ranch as well and got to meet some of the other horses. Afterwards, the wine tasting and lunch was also good, but it wasn't my favourite part of the trip to be honest. Nothing wrong with it, the only thing I wished was that I would've got the option to actually buy a bottle of wine before I left, after I got to taste so many delicious wines. But I think maybe they were just busy, as there were quite a lot of people there.
