Our guide Raphaela spoke German very well, was whitty and energetic and brought Pompei to life for us with her stories of how people lived back in the day! We all had an audio device with headphones so we were able to understand her at all times - even when walking 50m apart! That was a very convenient feature I wouldn’t want to have missed.

The tour was definitely worth it! Everything was well organized and you learned a lot that would definitely have been lost if you had gone "solo" through the city! Our guide "Gaetano" was just great !! He explained a lot to us in a very pleasant, humorous and friendly way and took his time! Highly recommend the tour !!!

everything was well organised and we had an overall delightful experience with our archaeologist-guide. we spent almost 3 extra hours after the end of the tour, to stroll around, revisit some of the places in our own pace and discover some of the buildings that weren’t included in the activity.
