Pompeii tours: private tours and excursions in Pompeii
Pompeii was lost for nearly 1700 years before it was rediscovered again in 1748. Your visit to Pompeii will give you extraordinary insight into what everyday life may have been like almost 200 centuries ago. Departing from your accommodation, you will drive directly to Pompeii with your English speaking driver and visit this amazing city that was once buried under 20 feet of ash and pumice.
This ancient Roman city was destroyed and buried by the eruption of the volcano Vesuvius in 79 A.D. Although this tragic event ended the lives of 20,000 Pompeian residents, the ash that buried the town served as a sort of mummification for the entire city; Archeological excavations are open to the public (entrance fee Euro 11.00 per person) between the hours of 09:00 am and 06:00 pm every day of the week, local guides can be hired in advanced or headphones voicing explanations of the sites can be rented.
Please note that since Pompeii is a popular area for tourists, we strongly recommend being cautious of your belongings at all times.

NEVER MISS THE SHIP - GUARANTEED TIMELY RETURN TO YOUR SHIP
We have been offering shore excursions for a very long time and we never had a customer that missed the ship. In the extremely unlikely event that you miss your ship due to the late arrival of one of our tours, we will arrange and pay for your accommodations, meals, and transportation to the next port of call.
PS. We know very well that on the ship they try to terrorize you, saying that if you reserve your day with a private tour company and you are late, they will not wait for your return and you will miss the ship. As you can imagine, in cases of bad traffic, accidents, etc. the big buses they use have to wait in line just like all the other vehicles, and if you are on one of our small vehicles it will be much easier to find alternative routes to bypass the traffic problems.
