What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?
The walk of the gods was fun and exhillerating. We walked about 5 hours from the hotel all the way to the bottom of the steps at Positano. Couldn't think of a better way to justify a gelato at the end.
What did you think of your group leader?
Eduardo was punctual, knowledgeable and hard working. Not only is he the village tour guide (he lives there) but he's the village taxi driver and overall entrepreneur. He is the Del Boy of Agerola.
Do you have any advice for potential travellers?
There are many stairs. You are staying at top of a cliff. Everywhere is down. Steps are the norm. There are extra expenses not included in trip notes, such as extra guides, tour buses and entrance fees. We used an extra 50 Euros each which did not include the spare day when we went to Pompei. Bring plenty of room for food. You normally get a 2 hour restaurant stop at lunchtime and there is an excellent 3 or 4 course meal waiting at the hotel too.
Is there anything else you would like to add?
Stick with the tour guide (an added extra) at Herculaneum. Our regular chap was excellent. Its a smaller area but he is so informative and funny he boosts your knowledge so your flying visit at Pompei can be unguided because you've already got your Greek and Roman head on.
