Pompeii 2-Hour Guided Tour with an Archaeologist
- Small group
- Skip the ticket line
- Duration: 2 hours
I couldnt go to Pompeii as it is currently shut on Mondays so I bought a ticket to Herculaneum thinking that it would be something at least. Im glad Pompeii was shut as although Herculaneum is smaller, it is enough so you dont get ruined out and has some absolutely stunning houses in a fantastic state of preservation. The colours on the walls and in particular the floor of the female bath hojse are so well preserved it takes you back to the time and lets your imagination run riot
We where the only 2 persons booked this trip. So there was no guide .(we got a part refund for this so thank you Get your guide ) But our driver Tony was really friendly & provided us with some extra information about the Herculaneum & also about the city of Napels. We visited it alone and the beauty of the Herculaneum was stunning. this is a must see, I liked it more than Pompeii .
Jasmine, our guide and the driver Domenico were so friendly and skilled. I highly recommend this tour with these two to guide you through the day. The explaining in the explored areas were fantastic, english was very good and the mini-van spotless clean and comfortable. I was way beyond my expactations!!
Herculaneum is manageable in around 3 hours at the most and, whilst you can wander around yourself, it pays to have a guide to really bring the scene to life. Definitely recommend this way of experiencing your visit (although a little pricey for 3 or more persons).
Wonderful host - super knowledgable and experienced. In hindsight we would not have enjoyed the experience even a degree as much without the guidance! We felt so lucky to have had our tour with her. Highly recommend.
