Incredible tour of Pompeii

Being in the heart of such an historic place was heavy on my heart. It was very informative and interesting. Our guide was an archeologist so he shared a lot of his knowledge with us and there is so much to learn about this place. I loved the tour and would highly recommend it to everyone that has a love of history. Francesco, our driver was so helpful with our day and took us to a wonderful restaurant for lunch. His communication was accurate and he had such a great attitude. Wanted to get to know us and share his culture with us.

Amazing tour of Pompeii and Herculaneum with Diego. Over a full day we got to see why these are Europe's best archaeological sites. We really felt like we had a sense for the history and life of the Roman period.

Our guide was Paula. Small group (3). Absolutely wonderful. Very patient with our questions, extremely knowledgeable. Nothing was a problem. Paula didn’t mind that we went overtime. Couldn’t have had a better experience.

Pompeii & Ercolano (Herculaneum) Tour

My wife and I went on this tour as part of our honeymoon, and we are very glad we did. It was very helpful to have a real archaeologist who works on site conducting the tour, as the knowledge and insight we gained were powerful. Pompeii was very impressive, and Herculaneum was well worth the additional visit, as the remains are much better preserved. The skeletons found at Herculaneum (the last stop of the tour) are a remarkable (yet horrifying!) way to conclude the visit. The only issue we had was catching everything being shared, as there are no headsets. For this reason, you have to really make an effort to keep up and stay close to the guide. There was a bit of difficulty understanding the English at times, as our guide was a native Italian speaker (obviously). But we got better at understanding him as the visit progressed. Great tour!
