Absolutely amazing tour! So factual and our guide was so incredible. He was funny and kind, making sure we always knew what we were seeing! let us have breaks in the best shade points which is needed in Pompeii in July. Honestly could not recommend this tour more! Best value for money and guide! Saw so much over 2 hours! Absolutely flew by! 10/10 recommend

For the price this was a very good experience. From the helpfulness of the guide to the actual experience and as a solo traveller I wasn't made to feel out of place. If you're in the sorrento area, Pompeii is one of those must do experiences.

We met our guide at the Sorrento train station and then travelled to Pompeii. Our guide Gino was great. He showed us round and provides us with lots of information. He was also very funny tour which made the tour even better. Thank you Gino!

This is a place where you better visit with a guide. Otherwise you will not get the full sense of this discovery. Our guide, Gino highly recommended !!! He was engaging and funny and kept us focused regardless of the high temperatures.

Excellent tour guide. Very funny, engaging and knowledgeable. We'd have wandered aimlessly (and probably got lost) had we been on our own. You can stay as long as you like to see more after the tour is finished which was great.
