We are having the hardest time deciding how to go about Pompeii and Herc. Decided to skip Vesuvius due to the climb and anti-climactic factor we've read so much about. I deifnitely want a tour guide at least at one of the locations. I won't be able to appreciate it enough without the history and otherwise important details surround the eruption.
What would guys suggest? Are there any tours that do Herc and Pompeii that start early in the morning? If we had to choose one location for a guide, would it be Pompeii or Herc?
