Excellent tour, it really made a huge difference having an archeological expert (had her PhD) tell you about it rather than wandering around on our own! Even though the weather was so hot, she made sure we could stop and sit in the shade when possible. Two hours was about right in that heat. Definitely recommend!

A compact, interesting tour

It was a fairly hot day in Pompei with an infant and a 10 year old in tow. Our guide was fantastic and took time to answer all of our questions, even from a former archeologist in our own family. Made what could have been a dull and uninformed visit into something special.

Out tour guide Sylvia was wonderful! She was very knowledgeable about the history of Pompeii. You could tell she enjoys what she does. Although it was a very hot day when we toured, Sylvia found shade for us whenever possible. She was also a very fun guide!

Worst Experience EVER.

Train broke down on the way there making us late. Rather than putting us in with the next tour group, we were simply handed tickets that cost $16 each even though we paid $150 for the tour. They would not refund us the difference, completely ruined the experience. Would never use this site again for any tours.

Dear Kenneth, we are sorry about your bad experience, and we understand your concern. Unfortunately, that day you had about 2 hrs delay after the tour starting time. Sadly all other shifts were already fully booked and not able to help and reschedule. We deliver a tour with meeting on spot and we are not responsible about transportation to reach meeting point. As you reached the meeting point, we also gave you your entrances (paid twice by our side because of your delay) to let you enter in the ruins anyway, even if you were not entitled. Kind regards

The tour guide was very nice, but we felt that there was too much obvious detail discussed. Time would have been better spent seeing more of the ruins.

Our tour guide, Antonio, was amazing and brought the ancient city to life. Very knowledgeable. Tour was paced just right. Would not recommend seeing the ruins without a guide
