An expert and enthusiastic guide brought Pompei vividly to life.

It was a hot day and Pompeii is enormous! Having such an expert and engaging guide was just what we needed to bring the experience to life and the two hours whizzed by very enjoyably. On top of the obvious historical and archeological information, we were also treated to humorous stories, interesting anecdotes and some spicy gossip about life in an ancient Roman town. Perfectly judged - not too heavy, but not too light - and very well paced, with plenty of opportunities to cool down at the water taps in between looking at the sights. A really enjoyable and educational experience.

You should always visit Pompeii with an archeologist

This tour is one of the best tours I have ever been in. Informative. Fun. Straight to the point. Punctual. Our guide, Paola, was very knowledgable and gave us insights that you can't usually find out in a larger group. She walked with us through some of the most prominent building in Pompeii, giving us a lot of information along the way. We walked from approx. 2,5 hours and it went like a breeze. After the tour she gave us some more information on what to see so I stayed for another 2 hours to explore the rest of the Pompeii by myself. 5* from me.

Very interesting and informative tour, would highly recommend

Really enjoyable and informative tour, our guide Felicia was very friendly and helpful, she was more than happy to have a chat about Pompei and it's past and was happy to answer any questions, and going into great detail during the tour and we genuinely learned a lot from her. I would recommend this tour as it was a great day out, it was only an extra 30 minutes on the train to Sorrento from Pompei and we managed to get the 2 in on the same day from Naples which was ideal.

Definitely the right way to do a short tour of Pompei

We thoroughly enjoyed this experience! The two hours allowed us to see a good amount of the site, but wasn't overwhelming, especially since it was super hot outside. We appreciated the depth of information shared personally by our guide Sergio, and the small group environment made this purchase well worth it (we were 4 people versus some groups of 30+). This is the way to go, highly recommend.

Outstanding way to learn about an ancient city with time limitations

Our guide, Paola, was outstanding. She is knowledgeable and professional. Her love for the culture is apparent during the tour. During our tour we witnessed a guest with another tour, who fell and Paola handled the situation calmly and swiftly. Highly recommend tour and guide.
