Amazing guide Antonio with a great sense of humor and incredible knowledge of the site. Our group of 11 (aged from 8 to 50) thoroughly enjoyed our tour, it really was outstanding. Antonio also assisted us with our time constraints and a variation to tickets after one of our group was ill. We couldn't recommend the personalised small group tour of Pompeii more, we loved it!

We had Stephanie as our guide and she was excellent. She was really informative, fun and was able to give you a great picture of what Pompeii used to be. Highly recommended! The tour company itself was very helpful. We were running late, and they made arrangements and kept in touch with us to ensure we could catch up with the group

This was an amazing experience that would not be fully possible if my Husband and I did not take this tour. Rosanna was an excellent tour guide and did a wonderful job explaining the history behind the archeological site. She was very energetic and you can tell that she loves what she does. All of our questions were answered and she even recommended places for us to visit on the rest of our trip.
