Terrible! After booking, you must call them to confirm pick-up. We called and called an no one ever answered. Our hotel finally got ahold of them and we got a pick-up time of 10 AM (tour is listed as starting at 10:30 AM). We were picked up on time, but then told that we had to pick up others as well (which we expected). We drove to the cruise ship docks and waited 45 minutes in a smoltering van for 2 people that never showed up. We then proceeded to drive PAST Mt. Vesuvius to Pompeii (1h) to pick up other tourists. When we complained that this was not explained online, they brushed off our concerns and then proceeded (after speaking fairly good English up to this point) that they did not speak English. Obviously we sat around the van in Pompeii for almost 1h waiting for the tour guides to round people up. We were told to pass the time by shopping and told which specific shop to go to (obviously some arrangement is happening there!) We finally arrived to Mt. Vesuvius around 1 PM. From there, things went more smoothly, but THERE IS NO TOUR GUIDE. When you get to the top of the volcano, there is an uninterested man there that asks "Do you have questions about the volcano?" He does not do an explanation, etc. Oh, and I should mention, the ticket cost for Mt. Vesuvius is only 8 euros. So we paid MUCH MORE for this tour that essentially just drove us way out of the way to sit in a HOT HOT van and wait for people. They were no apologetic. And when we spoke to management on the phone, they were rude and said we should have booked a personal tour then. NO! We were fine with picking others up, but when it says the TOUR starts at 10:30 AM, but you spend 2.5 h driving around picking people up (which makes up the majority of the 4h TOUR, that needs to be explained - you're only on the volcano for ~1h, walking alone without a tour guide). Very unsatisfied. Would have much preferred to cab there and buy a ticket on site for 8 euros, which would have been the exact same experience. Horrible.
