Paolo was an excellent and very informative guide - 5 stars! Herculaneum is very interesting due to it's unique circumstances post eruption - preferred over our visit to Pompeii. M tips for any travellers (especially if you are visiting during peak season/temperatures): 1. Be prepared to be patient with the trains at Sorrento to Ercolano Scavi - they are extremely disorganised. Always pay attention to the guide until you are safely on your way. 2. Take plenty of water. We froze a big bottle the night before and we were thankful for it throughout the trip. 3. Wear a hat - even if you're not a hat person. 4. Not for everyone a packed lunch would be advised. The surrounding town of Ercolano is a little "rough" so you'll probably want to enjoy a sandwich or 2 whilst on site before making your way back out for the return journey (there is only a vending machine area with seating inside the archeological site at Herculaneum). We enjoyed the fact that Paolo allowed us to have free time post tour to explore the site and the additional exhibitions ourselves too. Overall, really enjoyable day trip from Sorrento :)

We met our guide and managed to get a seat on the train but many were left standing and its a longish journey. The guide led us through the town to the area but had no understanding that I was struggling with a painful knee and really struggled to keep up I would have gone in a taxi if that option had been offered We should also have been given a map of the place as when the guide left us we didn't know where to go as we didn't cover everything with her. We really enjoyed the trip but it is not suitable for those with mobility problems.

This is a well organised tour that leaves from the train station in Sorrento with all fares and admissions arranged for you. Raphael, the expert guide met us at Herculaneum. He was a most excellent addition to the trip being not only interesting, well informed and humorous but also mindful of our comfort in the heat of the day. Without Raphael, our visit would have been immeasurably poorer. Herculaneum does not have any signage to speak of and the only alternative is a not so good audio guide. A human guide like Raphael is by far the best choice.
